Bend Soap Co. Review | Goat Milk Beauty Products | Natural Home with Jennifer



In today's Natural Home with Jennifer, I am highlighting a wonderful family business, Bend Soap Co.

Based in Bend, Oregon, this marvelous small business produces high-quality, 100% natural body products made from fresh goat milk (from their own goats!).





100% natural, their goat milk soap cleans and moisturizes beautifully. I love the soap! It's perfect for sensitive skin. Bend also created their soap to help their son who had eczema. The soap is very versatile (see Bend's description below). I was intrigued that the goat milk soap can be used as a shampoo, so I tried it last week. It cleans the hair very well. It certainly does not have the same texture as a traditional shampoo, but my hair and scalp felt very clean.

Here's what Bend has to say about their goat milk soap:
It’s Handcrafted: Not all goat milk soap is created equally! Here at Bend Soap Company, we only use fresh goat’s milk (from our very own goats!) and natural, non-GMO oils to make our soap from scratch. This makes it the very best!

It's 100% Natural: Your skin is your body’s largest organ and it needs certain nutrients to look great and perform at its best. Studies show approximately 60% of what you put on your skin is absorbed into your bloodstream which is why we only use all-natural ingredients — no dyes, harsh chemicals, parabens, alcohols, fillers, artificial fragrances, GMO ingredients, synthetic preservatives… No JUNK!

It’s Moisturizing: Whether you live in a dry climate or suffer from skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis, each bar of our goat milk soap cleanses and refreshes dry, damaged skin while also helping to maintain your skin’s natural moisture.

It’s Nourishing: Found naturally inside goat’s milk, alpha hydroxy acids slough away dead skins cells with ease, allowing the blend of rich oils added to our bars of goat milk soap to sink into your skin and nourish the new skin cells below. The end result is skin that looks and feels younger.

It’s a Multi-Use Product: One single bar of goat milk soap can safely and effectively be used as an all-natural replacement for body wash, face wash, shampoo, bubble bath, and shaving cream. Hop in the shower, lather up, and rinse away — it’s that easy! For maximum benefits, use in the shower alongside our sugar scrub and seal in the moisture with our goat milk lotion.




I requested the milk bath specifically to try from Bend. I love milk baths and always have. The shaved goat's milk soap that comprises this delightful milk bath is very moisturizing. The lavender scent is wonderful and natural.

Here's what Bend has to say about the milk bath:
Milk baths are great for your skin, but who has, or can afford raw, fresh, raw milk? Instead, draw yourself a relaxing bath using our milk bath — the milk bather’s economical choice that’s a relaxing treat for the body and senses!

Each container of our all-natural milk bath contains curls of our goat milk soap which quickly dissolve when added to a warm bath, turning the water a beautiful milky white color and infusing the tub with alpha hydroxy acids which are naturally found inside goat’s milk. As the curls of goat milk soap dissolve, the milk bath gets to work while you soak, releasing the delightful aroma and therapeutic qualities of essential oils and leaving your skin soft, supple, rejuvenated, and moisturized. The perfect self-care treat for both men and women, even just one soak in our all-natural milk bath will let your mind unwind while making your skin look and feel it’s best.

Our milk baths are perfect for adults and can also be used as an all-natural bubble bath replacement for the kids!




Molly from Bend Soap Co. mentioned that the honey grapefruit sugar scrub was one of her favorites. It is the nicest sugar scrub I've ever used. The high-quality sugar exfoliates the skin and the oils moisturize deeply. You do not need to wear a lotion after using the sugar scrub, as the moisture lasts all day.

Here's what Bend says about their sugar scrub:
It doesn’t matter if you’re a man or woman, when it comes to keeping your skin in tip-top shape, exfoliation isn’t something to skimp out on! Exfoliating the skin allows you to scrub away dead skin cell buildup on the body, revealing newer, younger looking skin. Here at Bend Soap Company, we handcraft each batch of our sugar scrub using a limited number of all-natural ingredients that work with your body.



The goat's milk lotion in the Island Coconut scent is absolutely delightful. The lotion is rich and moisturizing, not greasy. Here is part of the description from Bend Soap:

When we say “all-natural lotion,” we really mean it. No alcohols, dyes, parabens, phthalates, synthetic preservatives, artificial fragrances, GMO ingredients (including corn or soy oils), or other chemical components will ever be found in our lotions. It’s also 100% biodegradable, hypoallergenic, and gluten free.

Here’s what you WILL find inside our goat milk lotion: water, goat's milk, shea butter, rice bran oil, vegetable source natural emulsifying wax, palm stearic acid, aloe vera, vegetable glycerin, natural and organic scents, silver dihydrogen citrate, potassium sorbate, and citric acid (natural preservatives).

I love goats milk! I purchase mine at our local Farmer's Market. However, they don't carry a milk bath. I take a "de-stress" bath every evening before bed and I usually will add epsom salts a couple times a week. I think I'd like to try their milk bath product. Sounds heavenly!

Hi Karen,

It's really nice. I wish they sold a big vat of it, ha! I will be buying it from them in the future and probably giving it out as gifts at Christmas.

Best,

Jennifer

Oh, Jennifer! I could kiss you! I have been experiencing a bout of eczema, and borrowed a book from the library that extolled the virtues of goats milk for this. Unfortunately, the writer of the book, who has goats and makes goats milk products lives in Scotland and doesn't ship to the states. I've been improvising on my own by drinking goats milk kefir and also slathering it on my itchy patches. I also found goats milk soap from Zum. But I really needed a body lotion! Your post was so timely! I immediately clicked on the link and did me some ordering! I am so happy!

Hi Mimi, I'm so happy! That was the reason they started their business was to create a product for their son's eczema. Come back and let us know how they work for you! Best, Jennifer

I am very interested in your upcoming review using this soap as shampoo. I have tried switching to bar soap shampoo without great results. I even gave it months and even tried rinsing with apple cider vinegar. My hair always seemed limp and stringy. Rightnow I use accure, but live how little packaging soap needs. If you don't mind, would you mind testing for a few weeks to show more accurate results than once or twice? I hate to try again only to be let down. I love all your reviews, especially this new natural home series. Thank you!!

I buy a local goat milk soap and lotion that is very good.
Off topic....some time would you talk about your children's capsule wardrobe and also provide sources for finding quality clothing for children please?

I've not tried these products, but I have started using a shampoo bar and I love it! The idea of not having a plastic bottle to throw away or recycle was appealing to me. The Mod Cabin and Lush brands are the ones I have tried; my teenage daughter and I really like both brands.
