A farm-fresh approach to skin care (08/15/11)

MECHANICVILLE, N.Y., Aug. 15, 2011 -- Oftentimes, people make the mistake of thinking that bath soap is synonymous with cleansing and nourishing the skin. However, many consumers do not realize that the ingredients found in most soaps and skin care products are highly synthetic and may not necessary clean and nourish as effectively as one would like. Fortunately, Alabu® Skin Care (www.alabu.com), with its line of all-natural, handmade soap, is committed to providing a truly natural experience without the use of artificial ingredients.

Alabu is a home-based company that creates its skin care products directly on their 36-acre family farm in the New York countryside. The company has developed their own proprietary method for creating Alabu soap in order to use the best, natural ingredients available for skin care. The primary ingredient that makes Alabu the ideal alternative to brand name soaps is goat milk. The rich nutrients that can be found in goat milk are highly valuable for most skin types, even the most sensitive of skin. Alabu makes all-natural, homemade soaps with each bar containing over 25% fresh goat milk and other pure ingredients. Alabu Skin Care soaps offer a number of beneficial qualities for one’s skin due to its key main ingredient:

Goat Milk Protects Skin
Skin is the body’s largest organ and protects against bacteria and viruses, thus it is important to treat it with the utmost care. Goat milk soap is fortified with vitamins, including vitamins A and D, which protect and strengthen the skin from harmful entities. Goat milk also contains light acids which have a similar pH level to common skin, qualifying goat milk as a buffer. However, most commercial soaps, which are not buffered, actually raise pH levels and can take up to two hours for skin to return to its normal state. By using Alabu soap, the skin’s natural pH level is maintained without going through a period of change while reducing the risk of irritating the skin.

Goat Milk Moisturizes Skin
Along with maintaining the health of skin, Alabu soap is able to improve the appearance of skin as well. Most commercial soaps on the market are actually detergents which can be harsh on skin, causing it to become dry or irritated. Infused with healthy proteins and fats, the goat milk in Alabu has many conditioning properties which in turn moisturizes the skin, restores smoothness, and adds shine. Because Alabu is made with only natural ingredients, it is safe and effective to use for the entire body, including the face.

Goat Milk Helps Sensitive Skin
Alabu soaps are mild and gentle enough to use for the most sensitive skin types. Today, many outside factors affect the condition of skin which can trigger skin ailments such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea. Fortunately, using a goat milk product such as Alabu can help relieve irritations such as blemishes, itchiness, and redness associated with these conditions while gently cleansing the skin at the same time. Even those with normal skin can reduce the chances of having an allergic reaction or irritation by using Alabu.

Thanks to Alabu, people everywhere can reap the wonderful benefits that goat milk soap has to offer. Whether one is looking to make the switch to a more natural soap or simply seeking skin relief, Alabu is the clear choice for skin care with optimal results. About Alabu®
