Have you been looking for palm oil free soap?

If you have been searching for soap without palm oil, you must be looking for palm oil free soap. If so, no doubt at some stage you have come to know about the devastation the palm oil industry is causing.

Once your eyes are “opened” to what is really going on with palm oil, and you start looking for it in the ingredients of products you are using every day, you suddenly realize palm oil is in so many of the everyday items you have been using!

“Where on earth can I find soap without palm oil?”

Mother orangutan with her baby

Avoiding buying products that contain palm oil is not easy. So next time you go shopping, you read the list of ingredients carefully to pick the items without palm oil…

Do you feel like screaming after turning over every bar of soap on supermarket shelves and spotting words such as “Sodium Palmate” and “Sodium Palm Kernelate” every time? Even simple words like “vegetable shortening” or “vegetable oil” probably mean they have palm oil in them. Where are you supposed to find soap that contains no palm oil and feel sure about it?

To make matters worse, when it comes to palm oil free soap, the available options are extremely limited.

If you have special needs such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea or sensitive skin, it is terribly hard to find something which is non-irritating, let alone without palm oil! Do you then have to succumb to making a compromise? We think not!


Palm Oil Free Soap
Palm Oil Free, Goat Milk Soap, Milk Relief Soap™

Common reasons people buy this soap

Milk Relief Soap™ was designed especially for one family’s hypersensitive skin. Common reasons why repeat customers buy this product include people looking for a soap that:

  • cleans without irritating
  • gives no scalp itching after the shower
  • does not clog the pores of the skin
  • has zero added fragrance
  • leaves no tingling on the face after washing (dried out skin)
  • farmer to consumer trading.

“It seems strange purchasing soap products from the other side of the planet.”

So what brought me here, to this product?

  1. reduce plastic
  2. reduce chemicals irritating my sensitive skin by stopping purchasing liquid soap as well as
  3. being ecologically minded by purchasing products that do not use palm oil (even “sustainable” palm oil is destructive) is what brought me here.

Using this product, I now have more moisture in my skin as well as controlled eczema. Milk relief soap is a fantastic product and my skin is very thankful I found it!

As consumers, we should be allowed to choose the products we will support without being bullied into buying items we are not completely happy with.

That is why we make Milk Relief Soap™ Palm Oil Free Soap.  The ingredients are designed to be non-irritating to eczema, psoriasis, rosacea or sensitive skin.

Some Goat Milk Soap dries out skin

Soap is made with goat milk because the ph (acidity) of the milk is similar to that of human skin. But some goat milk soap dries out the skin. That is why we made our own formula, and continue to use it day in and day out. We, the Smith Family Soapmakers think that there are at least two possible reasons why some Goat Milk Soap dries out some people’s skin.

  1. Making natural soap with real milk is not a cheap process. We know that some Goat Milk Soap is made with less costly ingredients.
  2. Some Goat Milk Soap has the glycerine removed because it is a valuable by-product that can be sold or used for higher-value products than soap.

Man-made products are designed with laboratory insight and factory production without whole food ingredients. They are a common solution to the problem of soap drying skin. But our family prefers natural skin care options.

Not all Goat Milk Soap is created with the same non-drying-for-skin factor

People with sensitive skin may choose their soap based purely on how dry their skin feels after using it. I know that we do, at the Smith Family. We have a customer who said they, “Like it better than others, and they have tried a few. In fact, quite a few, actually. “It’s my favourite” is what they said about our small soap with the goatie on it”.

Some Goat Milk Soap is not gentle enough for eczema

It’s possible that a family will get reliant on their soap. (Of course, as soap makers, we totally endorse this…) Many of the folks we work with enjoy staying clean and smelling better than they did before using a cleanser on their bodies. For some families, the type of cleaner they use is more important than for others.

When a member of the family suffers from eczema, the soap they use might make a big difference. Our customers have said things like, “My family swears by this product. My husband and three year old daughter both have eczema.”

Family members who are particular about their soap selection may do so because they require a soft, non-irritating cleanser.

When it comes to eczema, it’s critical not to run out of gentle soap. However, the family occasionally runs out of their favourite soap. Then the trouble starts. What if the other brand is cheaper, but it isn’t as effective?

Have you struggled to find the soap without heaps of additives?

Some people attribute their scalp itching after the shower to the additives which they see in their soap ingredients. We have kept our soap recipe as simple as possible. If “nasty additives” is your concern, you may find hope here. Our main goal has always been, “No itching from soap any more”.

Does soap clog your skin pores?

It can happen that a soap has so many added items in it that the skin pores get clogged. It has been said that our soap does not do that. We have certainly experienced great pore unclogging benefits using the Goat Milk Soap. But each person may experience the soap differently. Certainly, it takes more than one initial use to see how the soap is going to work out for your skin.

Are you looking for fragrance-free Goats Milk Soap?

There are people out there who don’t welcome a gift of goats milk soap from a friend, even though the friend knows they use goat milk soap, exclusively. But why?

Some people with eczema can only use goats milk soap, but not all of them. They need fragrance-free goat milk soap.

Milk Relief Soap™ has no fragrance added. See the ingredients or product pages for more details. The Skincare sticks also have no fragrance added.

We bought some goat soap of another brand but it does not have the same efficacy

My family swears by this product. My husband and three year old daughter both have eczema. This goat soap is so gentle and soothing that its great to use during and after flare-ups. The one time we ran out, we bought some goat soap of another brand but it does not have the same efficacy. This is our family’s bath soap and now we get a steady supply so we don’t run out.

And what a fitting demonstration of the type of whole family farming we endeavor to maintain here.
