Mă întreb Lapte

Milk soaps have been around for centuries...used by those who love to have beautiful skin the world over.  What makes milk soaps so favorable?

Soaps made with milks are mild and gentle on the skin, they promote softness and well-conditioned skin.
The most common type of milk used in artisanal soaps is goats milk.  Goats milk provides lactic acid, just as cow's milk, although soaps made with goats milk are said to be creamier in texture, and much closer to our natural ph level.

For those who want a creamy soap, but would desire a vegan product, there's almond, soy coconut and rice milk soaps.  I choose to use plant-derived milks because everyone can truly use them and quality control is easier to manage.

I have chosen to use almond milk in my newest milk soap, "Mă întreb Lapte"...which translates to Wonder Milk. Almond milk contains lots of vitamin E that hydrates, and helps protect your skin. Bathing with any milk soap helps to restore your skins vitality and helps to remove dead skin cells so you'll have a healthy radiant glow.

I made "Mă întreb Lapte" with your skin in mind. It's a gentle handmade soap that has a wonderfully soft vanilla scent, that includes ripened Mediterranean fruits. For more information on the benefits of almonds and almond milk, please visit FitDay.  Also, for a clear and glowing complexion, try out this wonderful almond facial scrub that you can make yourself!

Homemade Almond Scrub

1 tbs baking soda
1 tbs honey
1 tbs olive oil
1 tbs ground almonds

* use a coffee grinder or a rolling pin to crush and grind your almonds. You'll want to make them fine, yet a bit crumbly for good exfoliation!  Mix all of the ingredients and apply to freshly cleansed wet skin. Use your fingertips and massage in circular motions. Be sure to avoid your eyes, then rinse off the scrub with warm water. Use this scrub twice a week, you can always make more and keep in the fridge!
