If you live with dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, or other uncomfortable skin conditions, there’s a good chance you’ve tried almost every moisturizing lotion on the market to get relief from the flakey skin—that persistent itching, swelling, and pain.

Goat’s milk has a long history in the skincare industry, dating as far back as 600 BCE.
It’s held onto its holistic popularity thanks to its gentle, soothing qualities that work to support your skin. Not only is it an excellent option for those with sensitive skin, but it also deeply nourishes and hydrates for a soft, supple complexion.
The Goat’s Field makes goat milk lotion utilizing only natural ingredients. The best goat milk lotion for your skin is one that contains only goat’s milk and emollient oils (naturally rich in vitamin E) as the primary ingredients.
We ensure there are no additives, artificial preservatives, or chemicals in any of our products.

Goat Milk Lotion Benefits
Still unsure whether goat milk lotion is the best choice for your skin concerns? We’ve summarized some of its more impressive benefits to show you what this natural ingredient can do for your complexion.
Skin Nourishing: Goat milk is a farm-fresh ingredient brimming with vitamins A, D, and B6, which deeply nourish the skin. Vitamin A, or retinol, boosts cell regeneration and repair. Vitamin D is an antioxidant that protects against free-radical damage, and B6 stimulates healthy collagen production.
Gentle Exfoliation: Goat milk is rich in lactic acid, a form of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). This sensitive skin-safe exfoliant promotes cell turnover and reveals a more radiant complexion.
Relief From Dryness and Irritation: For those with sensitive skin or conditions like eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis, goat milk is also a gentle, natural solution to your skincare woes. It has a pH of 6.7- 5.2, similar to human skin, and anti-inflammatory properties that soothe irritation and banish redness.
Richly Moisturizing: Perhaps most impressive, though, is goat milk’s fat and glycerin content. Both of these are fundamental ingredients for a healthy moisture barrier, which helps your skin absorb moisture from the environment and retain it for longer.
Healing Properties: Goat milk is antimicrobial and can help battle acne-causing bacteria. It can also help maintain your skin’s protective moisture barrier thanks to its high concentration of proteins.
The Risks of Goat Milk Lotion
Because goat milk is a natural dairy product, it carries many of the same dangers as traditional cow milk, although you obviously aren’t ingesting it.
Poor quality or improperly processed goat milk products can harbor bacterial contamination. Make sure to choose reputable brands, like The Goat’s Field, LLC., with high manufacturing standards to reduce the risk of contaminated products
Only choose products containing natural, skin-safe preservatives that hamper microbial growth. In our products, we use natural non-GMO citric acid (vitamin C). Commonly used in the natural food industry, vitamin C is a great preservative, and can help to prevent bacterial growth without impacting the quality or efficacy of the product.
We use lactobacillus, radish root ferment filtrate, and cocos nucifera (coconut) fruit extract to also help keep your goat milk lotion free from any potential pathogenic bacteria.
While exceptionally rare, some people can experience an allergic reaction to the proteins in goat milk. Always do a small patch test to see how well your skin tolerates goat milk lotion before adding it to your skincare routine. Generally, goat’s milk is tolerated much better than cow’s milk as it doesn’t contain the same indigestible beta-casein protein that milk does.
This often makes it safe, even for those sensitive to dairy.
Goat milk is a nourishing skincare solution—as a soap and as a lotion—that has long been used throughout history for its nutrient-dense, naturally hydrating properties (and gentle exfoliation). It’s well-tolerated, even by those with inflammatory or autoimmune conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
Whether you’re battling a specific skin condition or just want more from an everyday moisturizer, adding goat milk location to your skincare routine can give you that natural glow you’ve always wanted—as an affordable and safe option.
