Q. Can I use goat milk soap on my face?
A. Certainly. Goat milk is very close to our skin's pH. In addition, the goat milk I use is very high in butterfat, so it has great emolliency. Indian Complexion Bar has sandalwood essential oil as well as finely ground sandalwood and turmeric. It is great for evening out skin tones, and I use it on my face all the time. It never leaves my skin feeling taut and dry the way commercial soap would.

Q. Do I need different bars for my face and my bath?
One bar will work for both, but you may want to try Oatmeal Cleansing Bar for your face if your skin is very oily. For normal to dry skin, try either Almond Delight (which has ground almonds for exfoliating) or Indian Complexion Bar.

Q. What is milled soap?
Milled soap is soap that has been double-processed. I start with Baby O Baby fragrance free soap, and when it is about half way through the cure period, the soap is grated and combined with a liquid. For instance, the Triple Sage bar uses sage tea for the liquid. Once the soap is thoroughly melted, it is ready for any additives and is then remolded. For Triple Sage bar, I use dried sage leaves and clary sage essential oil as additives before the final mold.

Q. How long will the bars last?
Using goat milk in place of water creates a very dense bar that will last longer than most bars. Just remember to put the bar in a dry place after each use and you will use a bar for months!

Q. What is the difference between fragrance oil and essential oil?
Fragrance oils have artificial fragrances added to a scent-free base oil such as coconut oil. Essential oils are the distilled oils of the plant or flower, with no added fragrances. What you smell is the true scent of the plant or flower.
