How Does Dove Soap Compare to Goat Milk Soap?
I am often told by people that their doctor recommended they use Dove for their sensitive skin. Some of them are hesitant to try our goat milk soap because of this and ask how our soaps compare. You can read what some people who have switched from Dove to our goat milk soap have to say. But I thought I'd also take a moment to compare ingredients so you can make an informed decision.

Everyone has to make their own decisions, but the reason I started making my own soap in the first place was to avoid most of the ingredients used in Dove and other commercial detergents, soaps, and beauty bars. If you're willing to use the ingredients in Dove on your skin, why not try a travel bar of our castile or purity goat milk soaps? There are a lot of benefits to your skin that come with the addition of goat milk in your soap.
