    • My daughter has a little cottage industry. We have dairy goats and started several years ago making goat milk soap (no preservatives and infused with nourishing oils.) She has done very well at fairs and such, but we haven’t taken the plunge to market online. I had hoped to find some others with similar online businesses that would carry her soaps so we wouldn’t have to do the website thing. Any ideas? Or anyone interested in purchasing individual orders? We make very small batches, and can alter the recipes to order. Most of the time we make all natural, no scents added. Occasionally we’ll use essential oils.

    • I use one of their soaps on my face. I have really sensitive skin and usually only use Ivory. But I love how this one makes my skin feel, it felt super clean. And I didn’t have to use toner before putting on my lotion.

    • I am a soap fanatic. I have not used goat milk soap before. Does the natural soap have a scent at all?

      I usually buy handmade soaps and European soaps with fragrances added.

      I’m curious?

    • Cynthia,
      We can add fragrances, but I tend to prefer all natural - sometimes adding an essential oil for the benefit and the side benefit is scent. Goat milk is supposedly what Cleopatra bathed in. It is very nourishing for your skin.
      We make really small batches (about 4 lbs at a time) and can make it to order. I really love the cocoa butter soap because it has a chocolate smell without adding fragrance. We also made a peppermint soap last year that was a big seller. It is not recommended for sensitive skin though as it has a tendancy to be astringent.

    • What I would really like to find is some small businesses that would include her soaps in their line so I wouldn’t have to set up a website. estatic

    • My son has very sensitive skin...Happy, if you do get this going, let me know. I would love to try some for my son.
      After reading Cindy’s response I might would want to try some for my face.

    • Lisa,
      We love it. I won’t buy anything else. We used it exclusively for ourselves for several years until Hannah decided it would be a good way to make money to purchase her pony. Now that she has her pony, she has pony expenses - never ending ones. Making and selling soap is something she can do with me, and it is fun. If she can turn a profit doing it, then maybe it will develop into something bigger long term. I actually have some all natural made, though it might be just as cheap for us to meet in the middle as it would for me to mail it to you. :) Our basic price is 1.25 per ounce; I have never adjusted for adding essential oils, but some of them can be really expensive.

    • I’m open to trying it. If you don’t want to go the website route you could do a blog and a paypal button. It’s been working for me and there is no cost for the blog. Very little royalties for paypal. It’s economical.
