Sometimes it is very beneficial to think outside of the box. Over the next seven weeks I will be taking you there with posts on the ingredients in our goat milk lotion. We will be taking a close look at ingredients and the end result of all those decisions. It has always been our family’s goal to watch what we put into our bodies as well as what we put on topically. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and what you put on it enters your blood stream within minutes. This has led me to the challenge of creating a product with the purest ingredients possible, incorporating organic standards as well as organic ingredients whenever possible. It is by God’s pure grace upon us in bringing you the final result of all the research, testing and final formulas. So please join me as we take a deeper look into our goat milk lotion.
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7 Here at Anderson Family Farm we take God’s word very seriously. We love all the many promises throughout the word of God just waiting for us to take hold of and run with. So here is where I chose to begin asking, seeking and knocking; then came the listening. Lotion is made up of three phases: water, oil and additives. Let’s start with the water phase. We chose the purest form of aloe vera concentrate we could find. I love the benefits for the skin! Aloe vera helps to rebuild healthy living cells. It aids in healing burns and reduces scarring. It is anti-inflammatory thus aiding in any skin condition that is swollen. We felt it was a great choice that would have many wonderful benefits. Our next ingredient is distilled water. Your body is made up of 75% water. Therefore in a lotion it is an essential ingredient! This will be absorbed and bless your thirsty skin.
