Goat milk contains two key nutrients — lactic acid and Vitamin A — that make it an effective fighter against fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Vitamin A, also known as retinol, can increase water retention of the skin while also stimulating collagen production. Ultimately, both of these functions also contribute to an improved skin appearance. Lactic, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) found in goat milk, has been shown to increase the moisture levels in the skin. Like other AHAs, lactic acid is a known humectant. “You can think of humectants as magnets that attract water,” reads a Healthline article on the subject. “They pull moisture from the air into the upper layer of your skin.” The end result: The lactic acid in goat milk won’t just provide temporary relief for your dry skin; it’ll also decrease your dependence on lotions and creams going forward. In addition to moisturizing and plumping the skin, AHAs are known as powerful exfoliants that can deeply penetrate the skin, improving the appearance of acne, age spots, and scars, But while some AHAs, like the ones found in chemical peels, can leave the skin red and irritated, lactic acid is as gentle as it is effective. Lactic acid dissolves the connections between skin cells to make it easier to wash them away. It also promotes cell renewal, ensuring that any dead or damaged cells are replaced with new, healthy ones. And the best part? Lactic acid is super gentle on the skin and has been found to be less irritating and cause fewer complaints than other AHAs—or even some over-the-counter exfoliating washes that can do more harm than good.
