Activated bamboo charcoal is said to be capable of drawing dirt and bacteria out of our skin and absorbing it through the charcoal pores. This may help deter acne or other skin conditions. The uneven surface of charcoal may also have the ability to absorb dead skin cells, thereby exfoliating the skin and helping to keep it clean and smooth.

The reason we can add milk to goat milk soap without it going bad is because soap goes through a chemical reaction called saponification. This reaction takes the inputs and produces soap and glycerin as the outputs. The properties of the milk are in the soap, but it's no longer milk, so it doesn't spoil or grow bacteria. Unfortunately, lip balms and lotions do not undergo this same reaction.

People have heard me say that I don't feed my family soy products
and I don't feed my dairy goats
soybeans. So I am occasionally asked, "Why then do you use organic soybean oil in your soaps that your children use on their skin?" The orgainc soybean oil we use goes through the saponification process and I believe that makes it safe for skin care.
