Top 5 Benefits of Using Goat’s Milk Soap

29 Aug

Hand crafted soaps are on the rise in popularity. Consumers can pick from organic to gluten free soaps. But how do you know which one has the best ingredients for you? I have tried many hand crafted soaps but none have been as rewarding as Zum Bar’s goat milk soap. I believe what makes their soap so good is their base ingredient of goat’s milk. So I’ve decided to research the benefits of goat’s milk in soap and what I found out was amazing!

Zum Bar Soap

Naturally Ultra-Moisturizing

Goat’s milk contains the natural triglycerides, otherwise known as the “good fats”, which allows our skin to be naturally moisturized. Most soap companies artificially try to recreate those good fats but end up using a lot of chemicals in the process.

Reduces Wrinkles and Delays the Signs of Skin Aging

Goat’s milk contains high contents of lactic acid. Lactic acid breaks down and removes dead skin cells which allow for the growth of new skin cells to form on the surface of the skin. This creates the appearance of smoother and more youthful skin!

Effectively Treats Acne

The pH level in goat’s milk is very close to the level in our skin so it allows us to not overproduce oils in our skin that cause acne breakouts. Also goat’s milk has anti-bacterial properties that delay the growth of bacteria in our skin which in turn prevents the growth of pimples and zits.

Loaded with Essential Nutrients and Vitamins

Goat’s milk is loaded with all sorts of vitamins like vitamin D, C, B1, B6, B12, and E. All of those vitamins promote the growth of healthy hair, skin, and nails.

Reduces Skin Inflammation

Since the content of goat’s milk is high in fat, it acts as an anti-inflammatory for our skin.The creamy texture in goat’s milk soothes dry and damaged skin reducing any skin inflammation you may have.


How amazing is that? If you aren’t using a goat’s milk soap yet you are missing out!

The Secret to Glossy Hair

I don’t know about you guys, but I put my hair through a lot of damage. Whether it may be by the over usage of heating products or hair dye chemicals, the best way to keep your hair looking healthy is with a protectant balm. Just like how we protect our skin with sunscreen and body lotion, our hair needs the same kind of care and attention as well. Unlike most commercial hair products, which contains chemicals that might further damage our hair, the hair balm from 100 Pure contains all natural ingredients such as:

  • Avocado Butter
  • Shea Butter
  • Coconut Oil
  • Cocoa Butter
  • Vitamin E (a-tocopherol)
  • Panthenol (Pro Vitamin B5)
  • Rosehip Oil
  • Lavender Essential Oil

It is difficult to find ingredients that we can actually pronounce and understand what they are! 100 Percent Pure has put together a truly organice product to help restore, seal and protect our hair.  To use, simply apply a small amount to damp hair before styling with heating products and it can also be used on dry hair to enhance the moisture.

Just like our skin, our hair needs protectant too! Available at our La Jolla store!

Breathing is Living

20 Aug

I read this from Aromafloria’s website and would like to share this with you:

Breathing is Living

“Long breath, long life. Short breath, short life. No breath, death.”- The Tao of Breath

The history of working with the breath is universal. Taoist masters carefully observed that our emotions influence the way we breathe. When we are angry, our breathing becomes heavy. When we are sad, our breathing becomes choked. When we are happy, our breathing becomes fluid and smooth. When we are peaceful, our breaths become long and quiet.

Breathing is something common we share with every human being. It’s with us from the day we are born and it’s the very last thing that leaves us in life. Everywhere we go we breathe, unconsciously most of the time. Thus the art of breathing is one of the most accessible tools on our road to wellness, and it costs nothing.

When we find ourselves in stressful situations, our breath becomes shorter and we even forget to breathe, leaving us with an even stronger feeling of anxiousness. By acknowledging the power of breathing, we can help ease stress with a simple exercise that can be done anywhere, anytime.

Power Breath: Helps relieve stress and anxiety. Stretches lungs and increases breathing capacity. Do this ritual first thing every morning or when in stressful situations.

1. Take a deep, deep breath, filling your lungs to full capacity.

2. Exhale completely, emptying your lungs of all air.

3. Repeat five times.
