The Golden Goat, LLC: Handmade Soaps and Skincare
One attribute I greatly admire is the art form of making things from scratch. Anyone can throw a frozen pie into an oven, but to prepare a pie crust, roll it out and carefully lift and place it into a pie plate is a thing of beauty. To peel and slice freshly picked peaches and pour them lovingly into your prepared pie crust is even more spectacular.
The ability to create and perform these once everyday actions are lost to many of us. I cannot tell you the last time I rolled my own pie crust! We use our rolling pin for play-doh these days.
The art of making handmade soaps is another amazing art form to me. And lately, many independent handmade soap and skincare companies are appearing around the country. Beautifully thought out and carefully manufactured beauty products from their own kitchens.
Today I would love to introduce to you Pam Keller the owner of The Golden Goat, LLC from the heartland of America, OshKosh, Wisconsin.
In 2003, Pam found her passion for animals, particularly goats. Being a one income family, Jeff decided that the animals would have to pay for themselves so as not to affect the family budget. Pam, being a researcher at heart, discovered numerous ways to fulfill that demand, and settled on soapmaking.
She taught herself to make soap, and when the goat milk started flowing, she was ready to start selling her fantastic products. Local Farmer’s Markets and crafts fairs gave her a good footing and a loyal following. Soon, the customers requested a retail store front from which they could buy her products year round.
The first product that caught my attention was The Golden Goat’s Goat Milk Shampoo Bar. Being a fan of some different shampoo bars on the market, I found that this formula was easily equal if not a little more nourishing than the other shampoo bars I have tried (It must be the goat milk). This shampoo bar creates a lovely lather and has a naturally sweet scent. Shampoo bars are wonderful for anyone with a sensitive scalp, dry, or naturally curly hair (you can read more about my post on shampoo bars here). If you are a fan of shampoo bars you must try this one!
A few months ago, we went out to dinner with some good friends. I noticed that my friend Chris’ neck and face looked slightly irritated and also had a few knicks from shaving earlier that evening. Chris has been bothered by this issue for as long as he has been shaving, and I asked him if he would like to try a different type of shaving soap. He was more than glad to volunteer as a guinea pig!
Here is a bar soap for shaving. The added bentonite clay forms a slick coating on the razor edge. The razor glides sleekly over the skin, cutting the hairs in its wake. Less scraping the skin means fewer nicks, no dry skin, more softness. Amazingly, the clay does not dry your skin!
You have to try this to believe it. Men love it for their faces (and some men shave their entire head with it), preventing razor burn and nicks. Women love it for legs, underarms, bikini area…
No more little red bumpos on your legs. Sleek, shiny, soft legs are the norm wth this soap. As an added bonus, your razors will last longer since the blades aren’t being dullled from scraping your skin!
Chris has been using The Golden Goat’s Goat Milk Shaving Soap for the last month and has reported significant improvements with his skin. Less knicks, less irritation and a much happier face altogether.
No need to thank me, just doing my job Chris, just doing my job!
Not only does Pam create handmade soaps, she offers a variety of homemade skincare and cosmetic products at her online store, The Golden Goat, LLC. I am confident you will find something that you will want to try, and Pam is so incredibly nice; you might even make a new best friend in OshKosh, WI no less! Pam would like to sweeten the deal by offering $5 off any $15 plus purchase when you put MYTHS in the coupon box! Thanks Pam!
Hey Tracy, can you send me your recipe for fresh Peach pie?
