Thank you so much to TheMerryGoatSoapCo.This was my first purchase from this seller and won't be my last.This handmade Goats Milk Soap is exceptional! Lathers very well and rinses clean.Does not cause any irritation to my sensitive skin.I purchased one bar to see how I would like it and how well my skin would react to this and it's just perfect! The Artisan is so kind she included a nice little note.The shipping to delivery was very fast and packaged perfectly.Will definitely be placing another order and highly recommend this Artisans Soaps to everyone!!!

About

It All Started With "Ruby" - A Different Type Of Gem

In 1999 a beautiful, loving Boer goat named Ruby came into my life. Ruby was an "only goat", her one companion being my sweet dog, Daphne, so I'm not quite sure she was aware that she wasn't a dog too. Ruby had a desire to be present and involved in everything I did and so spurred my love for goats and their fun, adventurous personalities. 17 years later I still raise goats and have found dairy goats, in particular to be a favorite. Each has their own personality, as unique and enjoyable as any person I've known. In 2011, with an excess of milk, I began using some of it to produce our own soap on our homestead and was surprised to find that it relieved my Rosacea unlike any other product, even those made specifically for sensitive skin. We gave lots of it away as gifts and when our local farmer's market manager asked if I would be willing to sell at the market, The Merry Goat Soap Company began its birth. At first we called it soap from The Old Way Homestead as I was already making and selling herbal salves and dried herbs from our farm, but we quickly determined from its popularity that the soap needed an identity of its own. Luckily, an art teacher friend of mine was game for drawing a picture of one of my girls in exchange for a few bars of soap. I mailed her a picture of our goat "Smudge" (named by my son after a mischievous lamb in a favorite story) and she began work on what would become our logo. With just a little brainstorming, "Smudge" found her way into a wash tub full of bubbles, merrily holding a bar of soap, complete with the smile she always wears. She was perfect and it was a perfect representation of her personality. The soap created from Smudge's milk is made the old fashioned way, meaning it's cooked to ensure all the lye is consumed by the oils. The result is a silky smooth, creamy bar of soap which is gentle enough for most sensitive skin types and conditions. Because it is cooked, the bars have a distinct, rustic appearance and are made with simple, all natural ingredients with no chemical additives. The raw goat’s milk lends a moisturizing effect and also gives the bar its natural color. Both Smudge and our other girl, Stella, are hand-milked in order to keep the process as natural and loving as possible. They know milking time means lots of yummy treats and attention, so we often have a rush to see who can run to the gate to be the first in line! I hope you enjoy our products and find them as wonderfully soothing as we do!
