We don’t eat the soap, so what does it matter?
Well, many think that it doesn’t matter what is in the soaps and lotions they use on their skin because they aren’t eating it, so it should be fine, but this isn’t true at all. Your skin is like a sponge and absorbs much of what you put onto your skin.
It is known that a better way to absorb Magnesium is to bath in it or rub Magnesium oil into your skin rather than taking it orally. Foot patches are used as detoxes through the skin. So given that your skin absorbs so much of what you place on it, we believe that no one would want harsh and toxic chemicals going into their body, so that’s why we are so careful about what we use in our soaps.
How is the soap made?
Some other soap manufactures buy pre-made soap, melt it down, add a scent which is often artificial fragrance, add colour which will most often be artificial, pour it into a mold and let it sit for a few hours then sell it. This is a very easy way of making soap as there is no stress with dealing with lye (Sodium Hydroxide) or the time to let it cure before being able to sell it.
The downside to this option is that the pre-made soap bases (often refereed to as “melt and pour”) are not very healthy at all. Even if they are labeled “goats milk” it can still contain harsh and toxic chemicals, such as Titanium Dioxide.
Another way, that almost ever big commercial manufacture uses is soap noodles. Again, pre-made soap noodles are combined with colour and fragrance and then pressed together.
So whilst some may choose these very easy options we like to stick to the old fashioned way of making soap called the “Cold Processed” method.
This historic method includes in mixing the oils together and then adding a goats milk mixture to these amazing skin loving oils. After this we then add our essential oils and clays depending on the soap. Then it is hand poured into molds and set aside for 48-60 hours. The soaps are then taken out of the mold and set aside on drying racks to cure for 6-8 weeks at a minimum. After this we then hand package and label it ready for sale. We feel that this method of mixing together raw and pure ingredients leaves you with a better quality soap that has far more goodness and nutrients to it.

Why do you sell the laundry powder in those size buckets
At the moment we sell laundry powder in 2 size buckets – 900g and 1.9kg. Why these sizes? Because that is what the buckets hold and we want to make sure you get the best out of the product you purchase. We fill our buckets to the very top. We don’t don’t like to stinge our customers, so what the bucket holds is what you receive, un-like when you buy a bag of chips from the supermarket and find that it is half empty.
Are your goats milk soaps, made with 100% goats milk?
Yes! Many other soap manufactures cheat and use 1/2 water and 1/2 milk for the liquid in their soaps, as this is easier for them. They then can claim this as a “goats milk” bar of soap, however you may find that it will not give you the best results. Here at Udderly Healthy Soaps we use 100% goats milk in our soaps and this is what gives you such a soft, creamy and gentle soap, providing you with such good results. You’ll find that our soaps have a more creamy look and feel to them, and this is because we use all goats milk and no water. Our soaps also contain a high percentage (22.1%) of Goats milk and this is another reason why our soaps are so different to any other goat milk soap.
