My husband started suffering from hand eczema about 5 years ago. He spent years in the restaurant industry and the constant washing of hands and dishes stripped his skin of it’s natural oils. So one winter he broke out in eczema that just never went away.
He was first prescribed steroids which just made the matter worse. It ate away at his nails and dried out his skin even more. It wasn’t something he wanted to continue using, so we started looking for alternative options.
My mom connected me with Louella LeBlanc, a high school friend of hers, that owns Triple L Glamour Goat Company. Louella creates soaps, lotions, and other natural skin products using goat milk and high quality oils and butters that would be great for his skin!
WHY GOAT’S MILK
Louella’s daughter was diagnosed with eczema at 18 months and like my husband, was prescribed steroids that didn’t help. After years of pain, embarrassment, and discomfort- Louella sought out to find a holistic approach and that’s how she found goat milk.
Goat milk is fantastic for dry or problem skin. Especially eczema, psoriasis, and acne.
Goat milk contains Vitamin A that exfoliates, repairs damaged skin and promotes collagen production. With high amounts of Vitamin A, B, C and D found naturally in goat milk they work together to heal, rejuvenate, and brighten your skin.
The reason it works so well for dry skin, is because it contains alpha hydroxy acids that shed away impurities and dead skin cells. Then the high amount of fatty molecules penetrate the skin & helps it hold in moisture. Goat milk has a PH level close to humans which makes it easily absorbed into the skin. It helps keep bacteria away and reduces inflammation.
Those with eczema or psoriasis lack moisture in the skin causing it to break, crack, and bleed. Which makes moisture retention essential for healing. Same goes for acne! So many people think you need to dry out acne but the more dry your skin is, the worse it gets. Oils and lotions are just as important for clearing skin as is removing bacteria.
GOAT MILK USES
Yes! You can even use in your hair! Taking a bar of goat milk soap and using it to wash your hair will do wonders! Since the high levels of Vitamin A promote cell turnover, it helps strip your scalp of dead skin (removing dandruff) and then gives your scalp a big drink of moisture. Most shampoos are made with harsh chemicals that strip away your natural oils. Replenishing those oils with clean ingredients and vitamins will help prevent dandruff and actually help your hair grow! We think of clogged pores only in our face. But our scalp gets clogged pores as well and prevents our hair from growing!
ABOUT TRIPLE L GLAMOUR GOAT COMPANY
Louella became a LLC in 2017 and officially opened her business! She sells online and at multiple local farmers markets.
She is a huge animal lover so raising the goats is her first love. Louella currently has 19 Nigerian Dwarf and Mini Nubian goats! She hand milks her girls and currently has 5 “in milk”. Once the goats are no longer able to produce milk, she retires the “nannies” to their ranch where they enjoy the life of being a goat and caring for the kids. The goats well-being and happiness always comes first.
What really separates her from other goat milk companies, is she is raising the goats & using fresh goat milk. What I found interesting is main stream companies that use goat milk, are using processed, powdered milk which takes away the vitamins and minerals ESSENTIAL for healthy skin. That’s why it is SO important to know where your goat milk is coming from.
Triple L Glamour Goat is using natural ingredients and staying far away from harmful chemicals that break down your skin causing more harm than good. If you know me, you know I am SO passionate about using CLEAN skin care products. If a company either hides their ingredients or the ingredient list is full of long, complicated words- STAY AWAY!!!! The current laws allow companies to use less than 1% of an ingredient but they can claim it as the main ingriedent.
For example my husband just bought Vitamin C face pads and when I was reading the ingredient list, vitamin c was no where to be found! Instead a chemical that contains SMALL AMOUNTS of Vitamin C was added to the ingredient list last (Ingredients are listed first to last depending on the highest amounts. So when you see: water, fragrance, etc. water & fragrance are the MAIN ingredients).
Browsing Triple L Glamour’s page, she proudly list her ingredients right there for everyone to see! What’s even more amazing is the list isn’t full of complicated chemicals no one can pronounce.
Triple L Glamour makes over 22 soaps and lotions using goats milk, beeswax, and natural butters and oils. None of the products contain any alcohol, water, or preservatives. If you ask Louella what her favorite products are she’ll say, “anything lavender!”.
