Once we decided that the best way for us to maintain our life with goats in a sustainable manner was to produce & sell skincare products made from their milk, we plunged into learning as much as we could about the production of soap and lotion. After reading volumes of information available on the web and in print, we started experimenting with various recipes. Many thanks to all of our friends who have been willing to try things out and give us feedback along the way.
We continue to research ingredients and experiment with new recipes and we are confident that by the time we sell a product, it really is wonderful. We use oils that are high in vitamins A, D & E, and that are easily absorbed by your skin. We also look for ingredients that are organic, fair trade & sustainably harvested. (Please find out more about sustainably harvested palm oil by checking out the RSPO link on our contacts page.) Botanical additives such as mint, rosemary or aloe vera are either grown here on our farm, or obtained from local organic growers.
Belly Acres Soaps are made in small batches which allow us maximum attention to quality. Our basic soap recipe contains *Goat Milk (the #1 ingredient), Olive, Coconut*, Palm* & Castor Oils; Cocoa* & Shea Butters*, Sodium Hydroxide, Essential &/or Fragrance Oils. Botanicals such as aloe vera, glycerin, oats and herbal ingredients add extra nutrients to create long lasting bars with a creamy, moisturizing lather. Soaps are cured for a minimum of 4 weeks before they are wrapped. This allows time for the sodium hydroxide (essential for the saponification process) to neutralize, and for the bars to harden so they will be long lasting. Please note, soaps that list "Saponified oils of..." in their ingredients have used sodium hydroxide to get there. (*Organic/Sustainable Harvested)
Belly Acres Lotions are made in small batches for quality control. As with our soaps, *Goat Milk is the #1 ingredient. This is combined with aloe vera* and distilled water. The oil phase of our lotion contains shea butter* and oils of palm*, macademia nut, jojoba, sweet almond, apricot kernel and vitamin E. Vegetable glycerin and silk protein add extra glide and moisture. Optiphen, a formaldehyde and paraben free preservative insures that your lotion will stay fresh for months when stored at room temperature. Lightly scented with essential &/or fragrance oils (as indicated on specific product descriptions) most fragrances are well recieved by both men & women. This is a great total hand, body and face lotion that is quickly absorbed and leaves your skin feeling smooth & nourished all day long ~ even in our harsh dry Colorado winters. (*Organic/ Sustainably Harvested)
*A word about Goat Milk: Fresh Goat Milk is rich in fats, vitamins, minerals, amino acids & enzymes that nourish and revitalize our skin. Those who suffer from acne, eczema, psoriasis and rashes often find relief when using goat milk soaps & lotions. Many of our customers report that Belly Acres Soap is the only soap they will use and that Belly Acres Lotion is the only thing they have found that moisturizes their skin without leaving it greasy or irritated. Our favorite compliment came from someone who bought several Belly Acres products to share with friends. The next time we spoke with her she said she liked it so much she kept it all for herself :~)
