Goat Milk's Soap Bars

This is a Great Recipe for making a Goat's Milk Soap Bar, this will make approximately 40 (4 ounce) bars.This soap will offer the best qualities and the extra moisturizing quality of goat milk. I hope this will be easy and simple to understand and I will add additional information in Links to Get into more detail soon.

Great Benefits of Goat's Milk

Goat's milk has healthy vitamins and nutrients that are very nourishing for your skin. These include vitamins A, C, E, and some B vitamins. It contains amino acids, citric acid, enzymes, unsaturated fatty acids and zinc. In addition, goat's milk soap contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid, this helps get rid of dead skin cells and leaves healthy new cells at the surface. Goats milk also has a lower pH , very similar to the pH of your skin. This will promote moisturizing and helps prevent skin irritations and prevent dryness.


Ingredients or Recipe for making the Goat's Milk Soap

  • 2.5 pounds (1.13 kg) cold, distilled water (does not need to be refrigerated)
  • 473 grams dodium hydroxide
  • 4 pounds (1.81 kg) olive oil
  • 2 pounds 8 ounces (1.13 kg ) coconut oil
  • 1 pound 8 ounces (680 g) palm oil
  • 30 grams grapefruit seed extract (natural preservative), optional
  • 2 2/10 grams tocopherol (natural preservative), optional
  • 1/2 pound (227 g) cold goat milk
  • Extra Nutrients, are optional
  • 45-50 grams ( approx 15-18 teaspoons) pure essential oils, optional

Mixing the Ingredients

I'm going to List a simple guide on Mixing the Ingredients as follows:

  • Wear Goggles and Gloves.
  • weigh sodium hydroxide and set aside
  • In glass container (2 quart ) set on scale and add distilled water, remove from scale.
  • carefully add sodium hydroxide while stirring briskly with a rubber spatula.
  • (fumes will be overwhelming for about ten seconds, be sure to leave room to get fresh air
  • Return after two or three minutes to finish disolving the sodium hydroxide.
  • The reaction will heat upthe lye solution to over 200 F (93 c) so set the bowl aside in a safe place to cook down to 80 F (27 c)
  • Now while that is cooling begin mixing your oils.
  • set the soap making pan on the scale and add olive oil.
  • set the 3 quart sauce pan on scale and add the coconut and the palm oils.
  • Place saucepan over low heat until most of the solid pieces of the oils have melted
  • pour the heated oils into the olive oil.
  • (if you want the natural preservative (grapefruit seed extract) add to the warm fats and oils
  • mix thoroughly and let the oils cool to 80 f (27 C)

Making the Soap

  • Gently heat the Goat's Milk to 80 F (27 C) stirring gently
  • Make sure the oils are at 80 F (27 C)
  • now add the lye solution to the goat Milk slowly and stirring to avoid curdling.
  • Put on Goggles and Gloves
  • Slowly Pour the lye/goat milk solution ino the oils, stirring briskley as you pour.
  • This will take approximately 10 to 40 minutes to saponify.
  • Once a small amount of soap trace can be seen, the soap is ready for essential oils (optional)
  • you can add essential oils, nutrients, scents at this point.
  • stir for about 20 to 30 seconds
  • Quickly pour Soap into Molds.
