Grumpy Ole Goat is a small family farm in the Tennessee Valley.
The farm consists of a small herd of Nubian and Lamancha dairy Goats, chickens, guinea fowl and several cats and dogs.
They milk the goats daily and use their milk to make Grumpy Ole Goat skincare products.
The cream in goat’s milk is rich with emollients and natural moisturizers that get absorbed by the skin instantly and create a moisture barrier to keep skin soft, smooth, and supple for a longer period of time.
Why is Goat’s Milk Good for You
Cold Process soapmaking is the act of mixing fixed oils (common oils include Olive, Coconut and Castor) with an alkali (Sodium Hydroxide or Lye) and goat’s milk. The result is a chemical process called saponification, where the composition of the oils change with the help of the lye to create soap.
One of the main benefits of cold process soapmaking is having complete control over ingredients which makes it easy to blend in fragrances and colors.
To get the marbled color, soap mixtures are poured into the molds, alternating colors and then swirled with a chopstick or dowel.
The soap stays in the mold for 24-48 hours. After being removed from the mold, it is cut, then cured for 4-6 weeks.
The curing process allows the excess moisture in the bars to evaporate, leaving a harder and longer-lasting bar of soap.
