Welcome to Soaps N' Stilettos of La Mancha Meadows Goat Farm
How I got started.
Soaps N' Stilettos is an all natural goats milk soap from our little farm in Watkinsville, GA. Each night I milk my La Mancha goat, named Sophia, to provide all the milk for my handmade goats milk soap.
I started on this adventure in soap making as a way to become involved in my daughter’s life. She had started her little goat farm and I had found goats milk soap on a trip I went on with my best friend Michele. I thought, “Hey! I’ve got goats, they’ve got milk, I could do this!” Well it wasn’t exactly that easy but now I’m addicted!
I formulate all of my soaps with my friends and family in mind and once you get a bar of my soap you are instantly my friend! Come follow all the craziness in my life and learn about my soaps too!
I make cold process soap, massage bars, whipped butters, sugar scrubs, bath bombs, and lip balms. You can find my products here online or in some local shops in and around our small town of Watkinsville, GA, just outside of Athens. I often participate in fairs and festivals throughout Georgia so be sure to Follow me on Facebook to see where I will be next!
Why goats milk?
Goats milk has many vitamins and other essential elements to help nourish skin. These include vitamins A, E, C, some of the B vitamins, amino acids, citric acids, unsaturated fatty acids and zinc. Goat milk is particularly moisturizing and nourishing to the skin because of capric-caprylic triglyceride. Capric-caprylic triglyceride is an effective skin moisturizer that helps to contribute to skin softness by forming a barrier on the skin to help inhibit the loss of moisture. Goat milk is the only milk that contains naturally occurring capric-caprylic triglycerides. The protein strands of goat milk are shorter than other types of milk and are more readily absorbed by skin.
Natural creams in goats milk soap help keep moisture in skin better than commercial soaps. This is because the commercial brands are mainly chemicals. Goats milk has smaller proteins, making it easly and quickly absorbed into the skin. Goat milk also has naturally occurring lactic acid that helps keep skin smooth by encouraging skin turnover (it acts similar to a gentle peel).
Don't be fooled by soapers who say they make goats milk soap but yet only use goats milk powder or canned milk as an additive in their soap. Our goats milk is fresh from the farm, I milk Sophia each night and her milk is the base of all our soaps! Our only ingredients are fresh milked goats milk and saponified oils and butters! This is REAL goats milk soap!
All our soaps are handmade in small batches to ensure the highest quality product. No two soaps ever look the same because of their artisan manufacturing but they all contain quality ingredients and meet our very high expectations for handmade soaps.
