Review: Chagrin Valley Goat Milk Honey Oatmeal

There are so many wonderful delicious things in this soap.

Did I ever tell you I love soaps whose names sound like breakfast food?

From the website:

“This natural soap is the perfect marriage of goat milk, organic oatmeal, & honey. Soothing oatmeal gently exfoliates as the honey traps and seals in moisture leaving skin soft and supple.

  • Goat milk, one of nature’s finest moisturizers, helps create a gentle natural facial and body soap
  • Organic virgin shea butter is excellent for dry, damaged or maturing skin
  • Many customers have shared that this soap has helped relieve eczema
  • An excellent choice for babies and folks with sensitive skin”

I found this to be a gentle scrubbing soap, nicely hydrating and great at cleansing off oil and grime. With NYC being super hot and muggy right now (and until the end of August) I’ve been using this to get clean and wash my oily skin. I feel very refreshed and I smell great after using this.

I use it on my legs instead of my loofah to exfoliate. I prefer oatmeal exfoliators because they are resilient enough to water to not dissolve, but they aren’t harsh enough to scratch my skin (like sand soaps). Grabbing a handful of oatmeal seems like a pain to do (how would I maneuver most of it onto my skin without it crumbling down the drain?) so it’s convenient to use in soap form.

I think this is one of those universal soaps for all skin types. It’s gentle, effective at cleaning skin, doesn’t strip skin of moisture or over-hydrate.

Organic Sunflower Oil; Organic Coconut Oil; Organic Sustainable Palm Oil; Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil; Goat Milk; Organic Virgin Shea Butter; Sodium Hydroxide*; Organic Cocoa Butter; Water; Organic Canola Oil; Organic Castor Oil; Organic Oatmeal; Organic Honey; Organic Cornstarch
