The Benefits of Goat Milk and Eczema

Eczema is a common skin ailment that results in itchy, dry, inflamed skin. It can be caused by food allergies, allergies to ingredients in skin care products and other sources as well.  Today we are going to talk about how your skin care products can be a lot of and in some cases, all of the reason for your eczema.

Eczema and other chronic skin conditions seem to have reached epidemic proportions.  We have talked to so many people over the years regarding this condition as well as things like psoriasis and cracked skin and are convinced that body care products are a large contributing factor.  So many of today’s commercially prepared skin care products are chock full of skin irritants, allergy triggers, harsh chemicals and cheap ingredients that quite frankly do not belong on human skin.

Consuming goat milk is very beneficial when treating eczema.

Goat milk has special properties beneficial to individuals with eczema. The protein and fat molecules in goat milk are smaller than in cows’ milk and make it readily available to be absorbed by the skin. Goat milk contains caprylic acid, which removes dead skin cells, alpha-hydroxy acids, which naturally rejuvenate skin and maintains the skin’s proper pH balance which in turn, keeps skin moisturized and protects its surface. These products are naturally anti-inflammatory and Goat milk is an excellent source of essential vitamins and minerals, including calcium, selenium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium and riboflavin.

Most dermatologists recommend substituting detergent soaps found in most stores with quality goat milk soap due to its non-allergenic and soothing qualities.  Quality, natural based moisturizers made from goat milk are also recommended to replenish dry and chapped skin.
