SHEEP MILK

Naturally homogenized, meaning the milk and cream do not separate, so that soap made from sheep milk contains all of the rich, moisturizing properties of the milk and cream combined. It is rich with butter fat and proteins that nourish the skin as well as almost double the vitamins and minerals and antioxidants than other types of milk soaps. Sheep milk also contains lactic acid that acts as a natural and very gentle exfoliate that is exceptionally soothing and comforting to those with dry and sensitive skin. It also contains the highest concentration of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) which is known to have cancer fighting properties. Lastly, sheep milk contains all 10 of the essential amino acids, riboflavin, and folic acid, leaving your skin soft, glowing, balanced and revitalized.

WATER

Just the right amount of distilled water is added to the sheep milk before adding the lye which reacts with the oil molecules to produce the perfect bar of soap. Much of the water evaporates out of the soap as it cures, resulting in slight variations in weight, depending on the temperature and humidity.

HONEY

Honey and of course sheep milk are used in all of our Signature Soaps, ie. The Milk & Honey Farm.

OLIVE OIL

A natural moisturizer, sometimes called “liquid gold”. Olive oil forms a breathable film to prevent the loss of your skin’s natural moisture while it does not block the natural functions of the skin. It softens skin and attracts external moisture to help keep your skin soft, supple, and younger looking.

PALM OIL

A superior vegetable oil used in luxury soaps. It produces a firm, mild, long lasting soap.  It is often used as a substitute for tallow.

COCONUT OIL

Produces a wonderfully bubbly lather even in hard water or cold seawater. It is very moisturizing in correct amounts and contributes to the stability and hardness of our bars. Coconut oil penetrates deep into the 3’rd layer of the skin to strengthen tissues and it protects against free radical formation as well as promotes healing.

CASTOR OIL

Acts as a humectant by attracting and retaining moisture in the skin. It contributes to making a wonderfully emollient hard bar of soap. It is used in addition to base oils to bring increased benefits to the soap.

COCOA BUTTER

Cocoa butter is extracted from the cacao bean and is rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants. It is used to make soap harder and last longer. When used in soap as a superfatting oil, it acts to lay down a protective layer which holds moisture to the skin so it is an excellent skin softener which leaves you with a luxuriously creamy feel.

SHEA BUTTER

Also known as African Karite Butter, it is expressed from the pits of the fruit of the African butter tree of Central Africa. It is exceptionally moisturizing and nourishing for your skin due to its superfatting properties. It is an easily absorbed antioxidant with a little skin protection factor as well.

OATMEAL

Oatmeal is renowned for its exfoliating property and is soothing for you skin. We add it to our Signature Oatmeal, Milk, & Honey bar.

As we expand our selections, look for new exfoliates and textures!

ESSENTIAL OILS

The pure and natural essential oils used in the Milk & Honey Farm Soaps are derived only by steam distillation, expression or extraction from actual flowers, leaves or stems of plants which also carry the beneficial properties of the particular plant. See the detailed description of each bar.

Ø    Lavender

Ø    Orange Spearmint

FRAGRANCE OILS

Fragrance oils are occasionally used in our soaps when essential oils are either cost prohibitive or when scents cannot be collected naturally. Fragrance oils are created in a laboratory to simulate the closest resemblance to an essential oil in molecular structure.

Ø    Oatmeal, Milk, and Honey

Ø    Baby Powder (Baby Bliss)

As we expand into colors, we are committed to NOT use any synthetic colorants, dyes, ultramarines or oxides. Instead we will use only natural clays, plants blossoms, roots and leaves that are compatible with our milk soap scents. Many colorants however are not compatible with soap made with milk, thus most of our soaps will be in their natural creams, beiges, browns and earth tones.
Naturally occurring glycerin found in handcrafted soaps has been removed from most commercial soaps today for the purpose of profit. Glycerin naturally forms as a by-product of “cold process” soap making. During saponification, the fatty acids in the base oils break off from the triglycerides which eventually form glycerin leaving your skin silky smooth!
Sodium hydroxide is a must in natural soap making. When added to our base oils, a chemical reaction occurs where the fat molecules in the oils are “saponified” or converted into soap. After saponification is completed, no lye remains in the finished cured bars.

 

Before you go out and spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on expensive moisturizers and soaps, give our milk and honey soaps a try for both your face and body.

The name honey in ancient Hebrew means “enchant”. In the bible in Exodus 3:6-8, the promised land to the Israelites was described as a “land flowing with milk and honey”, a sign of health, abundance, ease, and prosperity. In Samuel 14:24-27, honey was a symbol of good health. In Genesis 43:11, honey was an honored gift. In Proverbs 24:13, the Book of Wisdom extols the goodness of honey. John the Baptist survived on honey.

Honey’s ability to absorb and retain moisture makes it an ideal ingredient to prevent dry skin and keep skin hydrated and fresh. Ancient beauties like Poppea, wife of Roman Emperor Nero regularly applied a mixture of honey and milk to their face and bodies to keep their skin young looking, radiant and smooth.

Honey’s natural antioxidant and antimicrobial properties help protect the skin from the sun’s damaging rays and supports the skins ability to rejuvenate and refresh damaged skin, leaving it feeling silky soft and supple.  Honey also absorbs impurities from the pores so it is an ideal cleansing agent. It is also a disinfectant and is known to help heal minor wounds. Combined with nutrient rich sheep milk and natural oils and butters, our soap is especially good for people with acne, rosacia, eczema, psoriasis and those with sensitive fragile skin such as the elderly, babies, allergy sensitive and chemotherapy patients.
