For those with sensitive, oily, dry, acne-prone skin (or any combination of the bunch), here is a soap that can produce a clean without causing irritation. Creamery Creek's goats milk soap follows through with this promise and goes well beyond the norms.
Run by the Shumway family in Salt Lake City, Utah, Creamery Creek Farm is home to their personal herd of goats and a fresh supply of milk. Goat’s milk, according to their website, contains the following nutrients:
- Amino acids
- A natural exfoliant in lactic acid
- Vitamins A, C, D, E, K
- Hypoallergenic properties
Creamery Creek soap (which is made on the farm) is overflowing in benefits. The milk is combined with ingredients like shea butter, olive oil, coconut oil and many other components to increase the levels of moisture you receive.
Commercial soaps like Dial, Irish Spring, and even Dove contain sodium laureth sulfate, a surfactant and detergent that gives many bars of soap their distinctive lather. However, according to the Cosmetics Ingredient Review Assessments, this component is suspected of being a skin irritant. The makers at Creamery Creek avoid sulfates and still manage to give their soap tons of lather through the saponification of vegetable oils.
Creamery Creek has created more than 50 different scents of soap, ranging from the universally friendly Unscented to their bestselling Red Clover Tea. Each fragrance is true to its namesake but never overpowering. Some may even have you thinking of your favorite sprays from Bath & Body Works or Victoria’s Secret.
Ordering the soap through their website is easy enough, and the soap arrives within a timely manner through a flat rate with Priority Mail. The Shumway family sends a handwritten note of appreciation and an assortment of samples.
Each bar of soap is approximately 6 oz. in size and can last for over a month (when used by one person). The sample bars range from 1 to 2.5 ounces and work remarkably well as facial or hand soap.
Creamery Creek soap is so gentle and close to the natural pH of human skin and hair, it can be used as a shampoo bar and a facial soap as well. The suds will always rinse away without leaving any film or residue—only moisture, smoothness, and suppleness.
