Oatmeal has been proven to protect the skin and provide relief from itching. The anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory compounds found only in oats called ‘avenanthramides’ are responsible for oat’s ability to soothe itching and irritated skin. In addition, it helps in healing skin rashes and insect bites. The ground oats in Goaty Oat Myrtle soap also provides a gentle exfoliation.
Goat’s milk is wonderful for people with dry or sensitive skin or conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. It is also perfect for healthy skin that wants to stay that way. Goat’s milk contains many vitamins but is particularly high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue. Vitamin A in Goat’s milk is also known to reduce lines, wrinkles and control acne. Other vitamins present in Goat’s milk are B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12. The B vitamins are water soluble and play an important role in cell metabolism in the body, including regulating metabolism, maintaining healthy skin and muscle tone, enhancing the immune and nervous system function and promoting cell growth.
Goat's milk also contains vitamin C, D, E and K. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) which is probably the most well-known of the antioxidants, reduces free radicals in the body. Vitamin D is most noted for its role in promoting calcium absorption. Small amounts of vitamin E is also found in Goat’s milk and shares the status of vitamin C as another of the better-known antioxidants, helping to prevent oxidative damage to cells and preventing cancer. Lastly, vitamin K which is best known as a blood-clotting agent and assists with a multitude of conditions; stretch marks, spider veins, scars, dark spots and stubborn circles under the eyes, as well as wounds and bruises.
Regular use of these soaps provides amazing benefits to all skin related issues such as sensitive, troubled or normal skin, fungal infections, acne, oily and congested skin. It also assists with bites, skin rashes, stings and as an anti-inflammatory. Goaty Oaty also softens and hydrates.
