Calling all dairy queens! You’ve probably heard that milk does a body good, right? Even though it’s what’s on the inside that counts, there are plenty of benefits when it comes to adding various milk-based beauty products to your skincare regimen.

From the farm to the fridge to the vanity, there are more uses for milk than building strong, healthy bones or enjoying a cold glass with some of Brent’s White Chocolate Cranberry Pecan Cookies. Milk is a rising-star ingredient in the beauty and skincare world, and it’s gaining popularity for good reason: Simply put, milk contains lactic acid, which has proven itself to be a superior skin-softening agent and natural exfoliant that doesn’t set off alarm bells for irritation or dryness.

From acne to anti-aging products, these types of acids are a staple in skin care. They are commonly extracted from milk, fruits, or plants and added to a myriad of skincare products. While cow’s milk remains popular, goat milk is sproinging into dairy-beauty routines everywhere, so let’s skim over some reasons why you should get your goat milk on.

Here at Beekman, we play well with udders and remember our roots; our original simple goat milk soap is the product that started it all, and it grew to almost cult status overnight. Made the old fashioned way, by hand and with only the purest ingredients, it’s completely unscented, making it one of the most natural beauty products available.

Goat milk soaps are handcrafted bar soaps that contain no harsh detergents or harmful chemical compounds. The lactic acid component of pure goat milk is the key player in cleansing our skin and eliminating impurities. It’s what gives goat milk its amazing ability to help provide a youthful appearance, and who doesn’t want that? Those trusty alpha-hydroxy acids are really great at exfoliating, increasing blood flow to the skin and giving your face the rejuvenation it didn’t know it was missing. They work hard to remove the dull surface layer of the skin to give it a squeaky clean feeling and appearance; once sloughed off, the skin immediately starts glowing!

Don’t fret, squeaky clean doesn’t mean moisture deprived; the fatty acids and triglycerides found in goat milk not only keep your insides running smoothly, but they help you look great on the outside, too, because their moisturizing qualities help keep skin baby soft. Goat milk is very gentle, and it helps balance the pH level of our own skin almost perfectly. Because its pH level is similar to that of humans, it’s absorbed by the skin with far less irritation than traditional cleansers and soaps, and helps keep bacteria at bay. (Goodbye, pimples!)

Speaking of acne, it doesn’t stand a chance against goat milk based products. Goat milk, unlike cow’s milk, is great to combat acne-prone skin because it contains special properties that offer a natural, less harsh exfoliation for the skin, and antimicrobial properties that can eliminate and even prevent acne altogether. Think about it: If skin is already irritated and inflamed due to breakouts and acne, the last thing it needs is an abrasive product. Instead, give it the goat milk mask it craves and the beauty roadmap to clear, healthy skin. Added bonus: goat milk contains a fat molecule that has the ability to reduce skin inflammation, so lather up and kiss that redness goodbye!

We learned our ABCs and 123s in Kindergarten, but it’s always good to have a refresher course at the bathroom sink: Goat milk is jam packed with Vitamins A, B, C, and D; together these guys have a naturally regenerative effect to brighten the complexion and give way to healthy new skin. While the milk’s acids scrub away dead skin cells, vitamins promote growth of healthier, more youthful looking skin. Specifically, studies on Vitamin A consistently show that it reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles and can improve your overall skin health.

From sloughing dead skin to preventing acne and brightening skin, goat milk has earned its place in our beauty products and bathroom sinks. It’s said the cream always rises to the top, so treat yourself to some goat milk skincare goodies because it’s never too early to start prepping your winter-worn skin for warmer spring air. And when people ask where you got your glow, let them know you were barn with it.

Can you please give me a description of what your sweet grass scent smells like? Some people say that it smells like cinnamon and others say it smells like vanilla. Do you have any small samples available?

Hello this is Lorraine from Connecticut. I have spoken to you many times at Evine. I am the one that reminded you of your Amazing race days. Always a fan. I have bought and given away many bars of soap only to get great remarks also asking where I purchased it. Tried your laundry products and skin care products also. I have a mini Beekman store in my pantry. Shampoo, body wash and lotion also the cream. I have your Blaak line and much more. I will be keeping my eye out for your E-mails. Good luck in your next adventure. Always a neighbor.

As a child, I was always falling a sleep on the carpet and I obtained a mark on my face, which with age it was getting larger and a solid dark brown. (approximately 2 inches by 2 inches) I have has this spot looked at by a Board Certified Dermatologist and a Board Certified Internal Medicine Physicians. Both indicated that it was damaged skin and it wouldn’t get better.

My sister is a “HUGE” fan of The Beekman 1802 and has obtain multiple products, including their sweet grass soaps. So I tried it on by face for a month.

The damaged skin has almost completely faded away. I am now one of your new neighbors.

Thank you for creating such great products!

I am 75 years of age and heard you mention, on tv, products that you have for those of us with aged skin issues. I had to leave the house before you presented them and I don’t find them in your, online, product review. Please advise, Thank you

Hi Guys:
I’m from Toronto Canada and just discovered your products this last Christmas when you were on the Shopping Channel. I’ve known about the benefits of Goat milk products since I was a kid. Won’t say how long ago that was. My cousin had psoriasis and had to use it on the recommendation of her doctor. My Aunt was very progressive that way and used alternative medicines even back then. She used health foods before there was such a thing, honey instead of sugar that type of thing. At that time unless you were very wealthy the average person couldn’t afford to buy Goats Milk Products. I decided to buy and try your products in December when you were here because the fact that they are so long lasting makes them affordable. Best decision I ever made. My legs, feet and hands were so dry and itchy you wouldn’t believe. The minute I put on the hand cream my hands stopped itching. I used the whipped body cream on my feet and legs and it was goodbye dry, itchy, flaky skin and don’t get me started on the soap. Love it. I also bought the shampoo bars. I’ve ordered more this past weekend when you were on the Shopping Channel again. May I ask why your retiring the Heirloom Violet (my first purchase)? I absolutely love it. I use to use a product that was scented with White Violet and Forget-me-not. It was an absolutely wonderful scent, very subtle and your Heirloom Violet is very similar to it. Thanks for making such a wonderful product. Love the pictures of the goats by the way. So cute.

Thanks again
Neala

I have hypersensitive skin and have struggled to find products that don’t inflame my skin. I love Beekmann’s triple milk skin care system! I have the cleanser and moisturizer and am ordering the mask on payday! My skin feels amazing and there is little to no redness and stress. I am so happy the Beekman Boys and their goats caught my eye one evening when I was channel surfing and I gave them a try. I am so happy with everything I have purchased from them! 💕💕💕
