Your Skin Deserves Better: A Soap You Can Trust

Did you know that even expensive soap brands put ingredients in their soap that, if you knew what they were, you wouldn’t bring them into your home let alone apply them to your skin? It’s sad but true. Some soap ingredients are suspected or confirmed carcinogens, hormone disruptors, allergens or are unethically sourced. Some of the most expensive soaps have the same harmful ingredients as the store brands, such as synthetic petrochemical surfactants and potent formaldehydes. We absorb these ingredients not just through our skin when using these soaps, but also into our lungs when we breathe the scents and the steam from our showers.

Skeptical? Try Googling the ingredients of the soaps and detergents in your home right now and see for yourself.

Quaking Canopy Is Different

First we source the richest fatty goat milk from our own farm. We are on a first name basis with each of our goats. Fat is the most important ingredient to any soap, and first source of fat comes from a herd of very much loved (and spoiled) Nigerian Dwarf goats. We also source their feed from our farm, even growing them the very best alfalfa in our own pasture. High quality feed in equates to healthy animals and high quality milk out.

From there we meticulously research and test every other ingredient we put into our handmade soaps. Our focus is natural, pure ingredients that are ethically sourced. As a family with dry and sensitive skin, allergies to fragrances and sensitivities to detergents we personally test every bar we formulate. Our colors are all plant derived, our scents are made up of only essential oils, plant resins, and plant extracts. If we won’t use it, it doesn’t go into our soap.

  • Shea Butter

    Why Shea butter in our Goat Milk Soaps? Shea butter is loaded with antioxidants, a buzz word for substances that protect cells. Vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids make Shea butter an excellent soothing, moisturizing, protectant for skin and a staple in our soaps. Shea butter can help sooth minor scrapes and burns, soften wrinkles, and protect skin from future damage.

  • Coconut Oil

    Why coconut oil in our Goat Milk Soaps? Research and user claims on coconut oil suggest it is naturally mildly anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-viral and possibly even anti-fungal. Coconut oil can help reduce moisture loss through skin, keeping skin protected and moisturized for longer. Coconut oil can contribute to very gentle soap that works hard to remove grime without stripping skin.

  • Goat Milk

    Why Goat Milk in our Goat milk Soaps? Why, because it is in the name, of course! No, that's not is. Oh, because we are goat farmers! Hmm, not quite. How about because for centuries goat milk has been used in skin care in soaps, moisturizers, and milk baths because of it's many beneficial components such as selenium and vitamin E - which work in tandem to heal and protect skin.
