Carrot and Goat Milk Soap

As many of you may have already heard, is that Goat Milk is great for the body and face as per its nourishing and moisturizing properties it imparts. But did you know that carrots are not just great for the eyes, but also a fantastic veggie for the skin too?

You will find that several of the high end anti-aging products include carrot oil. and there are many reasons why. 

I'm  not going to bore you with repeats, but here is a link that I just love, that talks about the this powerful vegetable:  The 10 Benefits of Carrots 

Adding puree fruit and veggies is nothing new in the soap world, but I wanted to make, and what I felt was a very powerful facial soap...and IMO these two combined (including the other ingredients) make this a powerful combination, indeed!
