With the New Year most of us set goals of living a little bit healthier than the closing year. Some set a goal to move, others set a goal to change jobs, but most start some sort of health style change. It may be via changing to eat more wholesome foods. Even those this is a vital move to do, your largest organ - your skin - gets ignored. The excuses of it is just not in my budget, is valid, However, if I would tell you that my handmade products actually will allow you to not only get healthier more vibrant skin, but also will help you to safe money.
You see, for example, a bar of Soap - if the instructions are followed - can last 2 to 3 months. If this is not enough, you can use the Goat Milk Soap or Beer Shampoo Soap for your entire body. The Soaps lather up so greatly that you can even shave with them; overall you will save.
The lotions are non-alcoholic, thus your skin will get the hydration that it needs to stay PH level healthy. Because it is all natural and creamy you need only 1/2 of the amount that you normally use with other lotions.
But dont just take my word for it. Please read articel of the "5 reasons why switiching to organic skincare products is a good idea".
1 Healthier for the soil: Organic farming methods have a positive impact on the soil and do not make the use of pesticides, fungicides or herbicides.
I have that covered. The Goat farm is not only humane, but also holistic. I do not use any hormones or antibiotic, so the Goat Milk is at its purest form.
2 More sustainable: The usage of organic botanicals requires that biodiversity be preserved, so in a way you’re encouraging the preservation of these ingredients. On the other hand, certain petrochemicals are extracted using mining and can be a potential threat to wildlife habitat and biodiversity at large.
I am covering that as well. The natural ecosystem on the Farm and in our Neighborhood are important to me and Grumpy Goat. We both strive to educate us and our visitors and neighbors.
3 Eco-friendly: While this may not always be true and you may have to do some research to ascertain this, most organic skincare brands also make use of sustainable packaging materials and are more mindful of their environmental impact.
I am all about Recycling. If you have ever purchased the Goat Milk Soap, you have noticed that I wrap the soap in either old Recipe paper, or spiritual paper. The lotion jars I do take back for reuse.
4 Ethical sourcing: Again, this may not hold true for some brands, but you’ll find that most organic farms are run by small-scale farmers or local communities. By choosing to support an organic product, you’re indirectly supporting such communities.
I got that covered as well. I not only support community programs by collecting and paying Local and State Sales Taxes. In addition, Grumpy Goat and I have partnered up with local community outreach programs such as F.L.C and Tinker Elves. And in a way the Picnic with the Goat and Goat Yoga that we hold right here on our Mini Goat Farm and inviting Homeschool groups for visit, we get to educate and give encouragement for others to live a more peaceful and healthier life.
5 No synthetic additives: This may vary from brand to brand, and you might have to check the ingredients list, but organic skincare products provide a wholistically raw experience. The scent and color of these products is a result of the organic ingredients used.
Yes, and yes! I refuse to use Mica Powder, or Food Coloring to make the Soap or lotion look "pretty". Instead, I use grounded homegrown seasoning to give some of the skincare products a natural color. I pride myself to grow as much of the ingredients that I can, the rest of the ingredients I vetted these American based small business suppliers.
