Many commercial brands of goat's milk soap use powdered milk. We think the best ones use fresh goat’s milk. Goat’s milk soap is especially suited to those people with very sensitive skin. It’s the mildest way to remove old oil and grease from the skin and replaces these oils with pure nut oils and proteins.
Tip: These are big bars of Milk Soap (130g) so they last longer. Some people with smaller hands or children may find it easier if the bar is cut into two pieces.
Are your cleansing bars made of milk?
We aren’t called MooGoo because our products are based on milk. Fresh milk in a cream would go off and be smelly. Yuck! We do use Milk Protein in a few of our skin and hair care products, and it’s sourced ethically and sustainably.
Our cleansing bars do contain dairy but the fresh milk will not go “off” because the saponified oils prevent bacteria from forming. Our cleansing bars are all cured for 3 months before they are packed up and sent out to you.
I’m Lactose intolerant. Are MooGoo products safe for me to use?
Almost all of our products do not contain milk, except for our Fresh Milk Cleansing Bars so it may be best to avoid these. Instead, we recommend using our Milk Wash as it contains no milk or Milk Protein.
'Fragrance' is listed as one of the ingredients in this product. What does this mean?
When we first started making products, we used a blend of essentials oils to give them a lovely fragrance. But many people have severe reactions and allergies to them, even in small amounts. As a result, and because we make products for people with sensitive skin, we took them out of most products. Instead, we helped to develop a special kind of fragrant oil, whereby each component in it is less than the EU allergy threshold. This is how we can have a pleasant-smelling product without the reactions. The scents we use are proprietary blends from the company we get them from, and we’ve had no reactions since we made the switch. Also, of course, it is free from phthalates, which is the main concern in fragrances.
Why do the boxes have holes in them? As the soaps are constantly exposed to the air, how do we know when they've reached their 3-month expiry?
The hole in the box allows air to circulate around the soap to ensure it doesn’t start sweating and gathering condensation which can happen to natural soaps in warmer temperatures.
The process in which soaps is made is what keeps it free from bacteria so plastic, airtight packaging is not required. The hole in the box also allows you to smell our wonderful soaps before making a purchase or taking them out of the packaging! The 3-month expiry date is from when you start using the soap itself.
