How it works
Why milk? Why even use goats at all? After all, they are smelly little creatures that make a wide variety of noises ranging from adorable little bleeps to weird snorty snorts. How can this goofy critter with the bottle brush tail be of any real benefit? Well, as they say, good things come in small packages and the goat takes that to heart. Or udder, in this case. Their milk is absolutely jam packed with vitamins and nutrients that are pretty dang good for your skin. So good, in fact, that you will swipe your skin product shelf clean and replace it only with Purple Pony Farms lotions. Here is a quick run down of the benefits of goat milk.
While most think of this as a vitamin found in a favorite crunchy orange snack, vitamin A does more than just improve your eyesight. One of which is jump starting keratinocytes into mature epidemal cells. Translation? It improves your skin's ability to form new skin cells that repair damages like cuts and scrapes and gives your skin that healthy glow.
Far more than a chalky pill you force feed yourself when you want to stave off a cold, vitamin C is a powerhouse for your skin. It promotes collagen regeneration, which is what keeps your skin looking firm and smooth, keeping wrinkles at bay. Also, like vitamin A, it promotes healing so those awful cracks that form at your cuticles in the winter heal faster.
Vitamin B1, B6 and B12 are all found in goat milk and all help combat wrinkles, acne, eczema and psoriasis.
Normally we get enough vitamin D from being in the sunshine, but during the really cold months or for those who work indoors the majority of time, we can get a bit deficient. A vitamin D deficiency rears its ugly head in the form of psoriasis, either as a cause or making an already existing case worse. Fortunately, goat milk comes to the rescue. Vitamin D eases the symptoms of psoriasis while also repairing damage to the skin, helping prevent infections and overall rejuvenating the skin.
Another powerhouse that moisturizes the skin while soothing and repairing the damage from rashes and sunburn. You might also recognize vitamin E for its good work in fading the appearance in scars.
Hold up, how is an acid a good thing? Before you shut off the internet for the day, not all acids are the kind that will burn a hole through the floor. Lactic acid is a product your own body produces during the process of breaking down carbohydrates. You've probably noticed this process after a hard workout. Those sore muscles? That's a build up of lactic acid after the rapid burn of those carbs. In lotions and balms, you aren't going to feel the burn. Quite the opposite. Lactic acid in this gentle form helps break down and remove dead skin cells, leaving your skin looking healthy and taking away that itchy, dry feeling.
