How do you choose your soap? Price, scent, promised benefits? While these are important factors to consider, another essential factor is ingredients. That’s right, even your soap has ingredients! And if you’re not using Rachyl’s Goat Milk Soap, chances are that you’re lathering toxic and harmful chemicals into your skin! Your skin is the largest organ on your body and absorbs what’s put on it within SECONDS – so it’s really important to consider that you put ON your skin, you’re also putting IN your body.

As you can see, in Rachyl’s Goat Milk Soap all our ingredients are easy to pronounce and commonly known. In fact, you can consume every ingredient but the phthalate-free fragrance! We don’t recommend eating our soap, but you can feel great about what you’re putting on your skin and in your body!

 

The other two soaps contain water as the first ingredient. While water is not a harmful chemical, it does not contain any of the healthy benefits of goat milk! In addition, nearly every ingredient is a hard to pronounce, unknown chemical! While you may not notice adverse effects after using the soap (such as an allergy, irritation or rash) the long term effects can be serious – especially for children! The next time you reach for soap, consider making the switch to Rachyl’s Goat Milk Soap! Your skin will thank you!
