Effective June 15, 2014
After almost 3 years of not having a milk herd or making any bath or body products, we are resuming
our soap making and creating other products. We currently do not have our own milk goats, however
we have sourced our goat milk from a sustainable herd until we can resume our milking operation.
Feel free to browse our catalog however soap will not ship till early August due to cure time.
Some soaps may ship later est ship dates will be included as we have them.
In 2006 we decided to make our own goats milk soap so that we could have a more natural product. We also gave it to most of our Christmas list that year. After several of the people who had received it as gifts asked us if they could purchase more we decided to start selling it. So why should you buy your goats milk soap from The Kickin K Soap Company?
- Money Back Guarantee : We are convinced that like hundreds of others you will love our soaps. However if you don't send up to 2 opened bars along with any unopened bars back to us for a full refund.
- No Chemical preservatives: We only sell the best all natural products. This means no added chemicals Ever!! If we can’t make it with natural products we don’t want to use it ourselves, so we won’t sell it.
- Only pure essential Oils: No Fragrance Oils
Fragrance Oils: usually contain many different components ranging from natural essential oils to purely synthetic compounds. It is not uncommon for a fragrance oil to contain over 100 chemicals Fragrance oils fall under the FDA’s “trade secrets law” and therefore the ingredients do not have to be disclosed. They are supposed to be “safe” but many of the compounds are known skin irritants. Some synthetic fragrances do include small amounts of natural material or oils to give them a more natural scent. There thousands of chemicals available to create synthetic fragrances.
Essential Oils: are highly concentrated and potent extracts from plants, trees, fruits leaves, etc. Essential Oils can be processed by several different methods. We use only Steam-Distilled or Cold-Pressed oils. We never use any solvent extracted oils.
- 100% Pure Goats Milk: Most goats milk soap contains either half or more water or they contain water and powdered goats milk. It is very difficult to make soap with goats milk as the only liquid. The reason is that when you combine the lye with the liquid it causes the temperature to rise. If the temp gets to hot then you burn the goats milk, which not only makes a real yucky color but it destroys most of the value of the goats milk. We have perfected a method to use 100% goats milk without burning the milk. Our Soap is approximately 30% goats milk. The only exception currently being the cucumber–mint which has 1/4 of the goats milk replaced with cucumber juice.
Goats Milk: Although the exact origins are unknown, milk has been used in all kinds of skin care products for thousands of years. It has been said that Cleopatra preserved her renowned beauty by bathing in goats milk. The soothing and moisturizing qualities of goats milk have made it a sought after cosmetic ingredient for centuries, and especially useful for delicate or damaged skin.
The ancient Greeks and Romans used milk products as treatments for skin injuries. From ancient times until today, milk and milk products have been used as an excellent source of nutrition and for medicinal and cosmetic purposes. Goats milk protein contains all the essential amino acids, vitamin A,& B vitamins. It also contains minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus. With its natural emollients, goats milk soap can relieve dryness and restore a silky softness to the skin. It nourishes our skin as it easily absorbs the milk's rejuvenating components!
It is unique in it’s composition of fatty acids and lipoproteins, one in a class of proteins found in combination with lipids. A lipid is an organic substance insoluble in water, and helps seal moisture in when applied to the skin, thus preventing dryness and cracking of sensitive skins. Goat milk also has a low ph, which helps to reduce the alkalinity of soap, preserving the acid mantel which healthy skin uses to reduce bacterial invasions. Goat milk soap is frequently recommended by dermatologists and used successfully to aid healing for people suffering from skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne, and general relief from dry, itchy skin.
- Only Cold Process Soap: Many people make hot process soap since it speeds the saponification process and doesn’t require the materials be measured as accurately. Hot process soap can be made today and used or sold tomorrow. Cold process soap takes 4 to 6 weeks to completely saponify. However once again since you are heating the mixture hot enough to burn the milk you are destroying a lot of the benefits. Some of our soaps even go in the refrigerator for a short period after trace to keep them from getting too hot. We maintain the mixture at a temperature low enough to keep the milk from burning.
