Most big brand soaps use water as the base ingredient. The base ingredient for goat’s milk soap is pretty straight forward; it’s goat’s milk! Goat’s milk is nutritious, containing calcium, protein, phosphorus, riboflavin, potassium, tryptophan, and other vital nutrients. A bar of soap with goat milk as its base brings the nutrients of goat’s milk straight to the skin, and offers many benefits to skin’s appearance and health.

The best goat milk soap is made from fresh, not powdered goat milk, straight from a farm. Gretta’s small herd of mini dairy goats graze on twenty five acres of organically managed pasture at Short Leg Farm and playfully enjoy watching the daily operations of the  farm. The goats are hand milked twice daily seasonally in the spring, summer, and fall. This milk provides the base for all of the soaps.

Gretta’s soap is for people who are looking for products that are locally made, that exclude artificial colors and synthetic fragrances, and that are biodegradable and environmentally friendly. Gretta’s Goat Milk Soap is safe and gentle for children and people with the most sensitive skin.
