Today I'd like to share with you a new brand that I've just come across, The Goat Skincare.. 

It has been known for years, - in actual fact, Cleopatra was said to bathe in goats milk - for the pure reason that goats milk has a PH level very close to that of the human skin, and consequently it is super gentle, as well as it helps provide skin with natural moisture and hydration, which in turn may relieve your skin from from dryness, itchiness or irritations caused by sensitive skin conditions.

In addition, goats milk is also naturally enriched with lactic acid, which can help gently exfoliate the skin by breaking down dead skin cells, as well as contains higher levels of natural vitamins, minerals and proteins than in cows milk.

The products from The Goat Skincare further more guarantee that there are no parabens, sulphates or harsh chemicals in their products, which are made from pure and natural ingredients, sustainable palm oil and fresh, permeate free ethically farmed goats milk, from Victoria, Australia. Gotta love local companies too!

As the products are so gentle, it also means that they are suitable for everyone, including including newborns and pregnant women, and those with very sensitive skin types. I don't particularly have dry or sensitive skin, but my two boys do - so I've been using these products on our 3 year old, with great success.

The Goat Skincare Moisturising Wash comes in a huge 500ml pump bottle and the soap is perfect for gently cleansing his skin and hair, without any skin irritations. He loves that it lathers up into a gentle foam that he can then play with in the bathtub afterwards.

Also available from the range is soap bars in several varieties. We tried out The Goat Skincare Soap Bar with Chia Seed Oil and the one with Chamomile, and have been using them for his bath too. And while again, the soft foam gently cleanses his skin, in general I just find that soap bars are so messy, so much prefer the liquid variety these days.

After his bath, I've always made sure to add some additional moisture into his skin, following with The Goat Skincare Moisturising Lotion. This lotion also comes in a huge 500ml convenient pump bottle, and the actual lotion is very light in consistency, and absorbs quickly into the skin without any greasiness, leaving the skin very soft and with a velvety feel, and I can tell that the moisture is long-lasting as I don't feel the need to re-moisturise his skin again later in the day. The lotion leaves behind a gentle milky fragrance lingering on the skin, which is lovely and quite subtle, and also perfectly suitable for a little toddler - however, if I would ideally have seen the products also be fragrance free, and any added fragrance be from natural essential oils in stead.

The products are all well priced, and also feature the cutest drawing of a goat, which looks adorable in the kids bathroom too! There are several other products available in the range, including massive 1 litre bottles, shampoo and conditioner, as well as products with manuka honey and lemon myrtle, however, unfortunately, while the company website does provide detailed descriptions of ingredients of all products, it does not provide any details of benefits of the various products. 

That said, I have enjoyed using the products on my little boy, and can see myself repurchasing both the Moisturising Wash and Moisturising Lotion for him again in the future.
