Handmade Goat Milk Soaps
At Fourth Century Farms, handmade takes on a slightly different meaning. What does it mean to be handmade? Here is means that the hay we feed our animals was baled and stacked by hand. The feed the animals eat is poured into their feeders by hand. The pens are cleaned by hand and the goats are milked by hand. Every bar of Fourth Century Farms Goat Milk Soap is hand-mixed, hand-poured, hand-cut and hand-wrapped. To call this process labor-intensive would be an understatement.
But this process is something more than labor-intensive. It's a symbol of our involvement. Our commitment to our farm, our animals and our products. What our bars lack are the ingredients that make every other bar of soap the same.
Fourth Century Farms Goat Milk Soap contains NO:
- Lathering Agents
Each bar of soap is made using our proprietary process to ensure the highest level of quality. However this natural process results in bars that are each an individual creation. No two bars ever look the exact same, though all of our bars are some shade of cream, ranging from almost white to dark tan. This color variation is the result of slight variations in the chemical makeup of the goat milk as well as minor variations during the soaps' creation. In addition, each of our bars is hand-smoothed after pouring. This smoothing process levels out the soap in the molds, and the ripples from the smoothing help to instigate lather during their use.
Each step in the process results in a bar that is cleansing, mild, moisturizing and unique.
