I am starting a business that will help my charity.
Got Goat’s Milk Soap? If you don’t, you should!
I would like to "expand" my Goat's Milk soap making hobby to be able to include those around me and not just my immediate family. I have a small set-up for doing a few bars at a time, but would like to be able to make more than four at a time. I hope to get funded to be able to buy materials to do so.
I use the majority of my donations and my out of pocket expenses to keep this running. I was a combat vet who didn't receive much mail while I was deployed, and when I returned home. I thought of ways that I could reach out and help the troops that were in my situation.
Benefits of Goat's Milk:
Goat's Milk has been used for decades as a natural cleanser. Goat milk protein contains vitamins A and B and minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus as well as essential amino acids. Goat's Milk Soap produces a rich lather that benefits sensitive skin with it's all natural proteins and kill acne-causing bacteria. With its natural exfoliates, goat's milk soap can relieve dryness and leave your skin feeling silky soft. It also can help reduce symptoms of Eczema. Goat's milk also contains alpha hydroxy acids, (some have claimed they reduce wrinkles or the signs of aging!) are also known for their rejuvenating and restorative qualities.
I also use a glycerin base. Which is hygroscopic. That means it draws moisture to the skin by removing it from the air, and has a lower pH, which is gentler on the skin. A majority of commercial products take the glycerin out of their products and save them for their more expensive products, so adding them back to your skin this way is a great way to start!"
Correct. It takes me awhile and gets frustrating at times, but yes, I do the work by myself.
But I may take some advice on getting scents. I like to stick with getting the ones I like and sometimes forget that other people like different things than I do.
I have been making soap for over a year now. I have learned a lot in that year about it as well, and have come up with a routine that works well for me.
Of course they will! They will keep your hands very soft by drawing the moisture out of the air around them and bringing it to you skin.
Yes and no. I have met a large number of people who make soap in the last year and yes, it seems that the majority of the people who make soap are women, BUT, I can make soaps that are just as good.
It's a long story, but cut short, I wanted to make sail boats and couldn't afford it, so I turned to our community paper and found some classes that were offered and one of them was soap making.
Soap making was on thing that I could do at home in the middle of the night when I couldn't sleep without having to spend enormous amounts of money on loud power tools that may or may not tick off my neighbors.
The money will be divided among three different catagories:
The majority of the finances will go to (about 1600$) Legal and Professional fees; vendors permit, becoming an LLC, becoming insured, and copyrighting my business name.
There will also be a need for some office supplies and postage supplies to keep my project going.
And the last amount will go to helping me receive some better equipment.
