Do You Have to Use Antibacterial Soap For Coronavirus?

For weeks health experts have been saying that soap and water is the best way to ward off the fast-spreading coronavirus. Additionally, the CDC emphasizes that people should wash their hands regularly and properly as one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of infection. CDC – When & How To Wash Your Hands

People are washing their hands more often than ever before.  But there seems to be confusion about what type of soap is most effective.  With so many options on the market, what type of soap should you use, and does it matter? 

Antibacterial Soap vs. Goats Milk Soap

Everyone wants to “kill” this virus and antibacterial soap might sound like the silver bullet, but according to the Food and Drug Administration, there is no evidence to suggest that it’s any better at killing viruses than standard soap.

Using these products may also give you a false sense of security because you think they are protecting you more than soap and water. 

The reason regular bar soap is so effective against viruses is that it tears them apart. Coronavirus, like many other viruses, is held together by a fatty shell, a lipid membrane. Soap, by its molecular nature, strips that protective fat layer away from the virus, Vox reported – How Soap Absolutely Annihilates The Coronavirus

The Benefits of Switching to Goat’s Milk Soap

The impact of repeated hand washing and sanitizing with commercial soap is leading to another problem.  Commercial soaps contain harsh chemicals that dry out your skin after repeated use.

Cleansers don’t need harsh chemicals in order to effectively clean.  Our natural Goat’s Milk Soaps gently cleanse while they moisturize the skin.  They are free of harsh drying cleansing chemicals.  Here are 4 good reasons to use goat’s milk soap:

  1. Exceptional Moisturizing Quality
    The cream in goat’s milk provides exceptional moisturizing quality. Goat’s milk is rich in essential fatty acids and triglycerides. The essential fatty acids have a unique pH similar to humans, so it is less irritating and more easily absorbed by our skin. These fatty acids and triglycerides are super moisturizing. 

  2. Natural Exfoliating Properties 
    The lactic acid in goat’s milk naturally exfoliates the skin. Goat’s milk contains precious skin minerals and vitamins, particularly vitamin A, which is one of the most important vitamins for healthy skin. It also contains lactic acid that assists in gently removing dead skin cells to help hydrate and brighten the skin.
     
  3. Eliminates Itching and Irritation
    The cream that is present in goat’s milk contains nutrients that helps boost the moisturizing quality. These nutrients help soften and soothe skin ailments while eliminated itching and irritation. All-natural soap made with goat’s milk will not dry out your skin like many other commercial products.

  4. Heals & Rejuvenates
    The alpha-hydroxy acids found in goat’s milk possess rejuvenating benefits on skin cells as the rich butter fats softens, hydrates, and heals the skin. 

Now that we have learned why goat milk is so good for your skin, it’s time to give it a try give your skin some dry skin relief! SHOP ALL GOATS MILK SOAPS
