Natural Handmade Goatsmilk Skin Cream

The wonderful ingredients in this natural cream are what make it an incredible moisturizer and skin softener.  Goatsmilk, as one of the prime ingredients, absorbs and assimulates into the body extremely well and actually helps bring the skin to the healthy pH level.  At this level, your skin is able to fight off  bacterial invasions and many people have experienced relief from skin afflictions using goatsmilk. 

This cream contains several highly absorbent oils (jojoba, sweet almond, apricot kernel, and avocado).  It also contains hemp seed oil, grapeseed oil, flaxseed oil, vitamin E, glycerin, cocoa butter and shea butter for additional moisturizing, plus skin protection.  Each 8 oz. jar contains approximately 3 ounces of goatsmilk (unlike most others) .  With natural preservatives and stabilizers like grapefruit seed extract and potassium sorbate, the cream should be kept refrigerated for long term storage, although you can usually store your jar for a few weeks at room temperature.  Avoid storing in areas where temperatures are elevated.  It is best to use a natural refrigerated cream within 1 year, but it will keep much longer.

You will feel the difference!

*Due to it's natural state, the true scent of this product will come through a few seconds after applying.  Many are scented with pure essential oils, which along with the goatsmilk, will adjust to each person's chemistry with a light pleasant scent.

*A Sensible Note:  As with any skin care product, if you have allergies or sensative skin, please test first on a small area of skin.  Because this contains natural ingredients which can sometimes be slightly inconsistent in nature, creams may vary slightly in texture or scent from one batch to the next.
