We’ve been tricked. Somewhere along the line, we bought into the idea that we need a different product for each of our skincare, hair care, and beauty needs. Consequently, our bathrooms are overflowing with a seemingly endless supply of bottles, tubes, aerosol cans, and more. When we get around to sorting through it, we end up convincing ourselves that we’ll use the products again someday, or that a particular year-old product has its own special purpose that can’t be compensated for with anything else. This is simply not true. 

At Sandvig Acre Farm, we’re passionate about creating products that allow our customers to declutter their lives and implement a handful of natural products into their everyday routines. We’re here to prove that you don’t need a dozen different products to fit your beauty needs. We urge you to toss products loaded with toxins and replace them with clean, all-natural, skin nourishing products like ours. 

Check out all of the various ways you can use your Sandvig Acre Farm, products below. 

Using Goat Milk Soap as Shampoo

Shampoo bars are all the rage these days. Consumers love them for their eco-friendly packaging and because they tend to last much longer than a traditional bottle of shampoo — especially when they’re cured for six to eight weeks like our bars! Our goat milk soap has a great lather, effectively cleans the skin and hair (especially dry scalps) and will leave your hair looking and feeling fantastic. The most popular soap scents used as a natural shampoo bar are Oatmeal & Honey, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus Spearmint, and Lemongrass, but if you have a specific scent preference, feel free to try any of our goat milk soaps. 

Keep in mind, you may have to endure a short transition period when you first make the switch. Hair texture, scalp pH, and oil production all play a role in how fast your body will adjust to this new soap, so be patient.

Using Goat Milk Soap as Pet Shampoo

For many of us, our pets are more than furry friends — their family. Many pet owners’ anguish over their pet’s sensitive skin struggles. Unless you’ve had firsthand experience with it, you may be surprised to learn that many pets are prone to skin conditions just like us. Whether it’s your dog, horse, or pet pig, our products can help ease sensitive skin once and for all. 

The ingredients we use to make our products are just as nourishing and moisturizing to your pet’s skin as they are to ours, not to mention 100% safe! We recommend using the Unscented or Oatmeal & Honey Goat Milk Soaps as both of these scents are free of essential oils (an ingredient that’s been known to dry out extra sensitive skin). If you want to opt for one of our essential oil goat milk soaps, we recommend that you consult with your veterinarian on which essential oils are safe to use on your pet first. You may find a scented option is the only sure way to combat the funky smells your pet comes home with. 

Using Goat Milk Soap as Dish Soap

Ditching your standard store-bought dish soap for bar soap is yet another great way to cut back on your plastic consumption while sparing your hands from the ultra-drying ingredients found in many big-name brand dish detergents. With our goat milk soap, you’ll get sparkling clean dishes without exposure to dyes, alcohols, surfactants, or fragrances. 

Thanks to the uber moisturizing, sustainably sourced red palm oil used in our soap, you won’t have to sacrifice the bubbly goodness you associate with an effective dish soap. Our bar soap generates a thick, fragrant lather that packs a mean punch against grease, grime, and odor. You’ll be amazed how easily food gunk slides off your pots and pans when your sponge is slathered with Bend Soap. For extra cleaning properties, try our Lemongrass or Tea Tree Goat Milk Soaps. These options are loaded with essential oils known for their powerful antibacterial properties. Not only will they wash away bacteria from your sink and on your dishes, but they’ll also keep bacteria and odor at bay in your sponge, too! We all know the dread of reaching for a sour, mildew-scented sponge that makes the chore of dishwashing that much more unappealing.  With a bar of our goat milk soap, those days are long gone! 

Using Goat Milk Soap as Shaving Cream

Looking through your arsenal of products, shaving cream might seem like one that you just can’t give up. We get it — you’ve grown accustomed to the thick, mousse-like foaming cream, the ease of the dispenser, and you probably even love the classic aftershave fragrance. What you might not know is that many store-bought shaving products contain sulfates, phthalates, parabens, preservatives, and other ingredients that are potentially dangerous to your health. Aerosol shaving cream products often contain propylene glycol, a common ingredient found in antifreeze and brake fluid. As far as we’re concerned, anything used in engine fluids should definitely not be used on our skin!

The good news is that you can get just as close of a shave — with even healthier skin afterwards — by using a bar of our goat milk soap. Our foamy lather comes from a combination of high-quality, all-natural oils we use in place of the toxic chemicals used in most other big name brand shaving creams. Together, sustainably sourced red palm oil and olive oil act as our secret agents in creating the thick lather you’ll find and love in each bar of our goat milk soap. Not only that, but these oils are a natural source of vitamin E oil which deeply nourishes your skin from the outside in, leaving it baby soft and smooth. 

If you’re worried, you’ll miss the familiar fragrances that are often a trademark of shaving products, fret not! With a permanent collection of eleven aromatic scents and a handful of seasonal aromas to choose from, you’re sure to find a new favorite.

Goat Milk Lotion

Using Goat Milk Lotion as Conditioner

Now that you’re convinced to use our goat milk soap as shampoo (right?!), you’re probably wondering what you should do regarding your conditioner. Many customers have shared that they don’t even need to use a conditioner after shampooing with our goat milk soap. But, in the case that you find yourself needing a little extra hydration to tame your tresses, we recommend using a dollop of our goat milk lotion as a leave-in cream conditioner. Just dispense a small amount of lotion into your hands and run your fingers through the damp ends to protect and nourish your hair! Our formula is lightweight, non-greasy, and alcohol free, so it won’t weigh your hair down, cause an oil build up, or leave it looking brittle and lackluster. Instead, you’ll be left with beautiful, commercially worthy hair. 

Using Goat Milk Bath as a Foot Soak

No bathtub? No problem. Next time you’re feeling the need to de-stress, relax, and fit in a little “me time”, grab a bucket of warm water, head to your favorite comfy chair, and enjoy a little at home spa session with our top-rated milk bath product. The shreds of goat milk soap will dissolve, infusing the water with revitalizing vitamins, proteins, and enzymes. As the soap seeps into your tired feet, enjoy the aroma and therapeutic qualities of the essential oils.  Your skin will be rejuvenated, and you’ll feel like you just got a pedicure (without leaving your house or breaking the budget
