Product Rating: 4.9/5 (As per 72 Customer Reviews)
Crystal Goats Milk
Goats milk is naturally high in vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in butterfat, which makes it the perfect moisturiser. Vitamin E, which is beneficial to the skin, is found in abundance in this soap. There are no added colours or scents, but it has a creamy smooth texture that is nourishing for the skin and makes a fabulous moisturiser. Glycerin, a natural emollient, draws moisture from the air to the skin.
Please note that the Goat's Milk Soap may not lather as well as other soap bases. This is due to a natural chemical process, and it does not undermine the effectiveness of the product.
Usage: A two pound brick can make between 10 - 20 soaps, depending on the size of the soap you’re trying to make.
Features: • Highly moisturizing formula • No artificial colors added • No animal testing • 100% Vegetable base • Biodegradable • White in color • Wide temperature ranges, from 140 F to 180 F • Odorless base for a superior fragrance lift • Neutral pH of approximately 7.8 • Compatible with wide range of fragrances
Caution: When making soaps it is good to remember that the Melt & Pour Bases contain water as part of the formula. So if they are left exposed to the atmosphere, the water will evaporate and the bar of soap will shrink. We would recommend fully wrapping the ENTIRE soap bar as soon as it is poured and cooled--this should minimize/eliminate any shrinkage.

Rating: I absolutely love this product. Because it does not lather a lot I mix half glycerin and half goats milk. Its wonderful and so moisturizing. One of my customer tried this bar once is was gone went back to the regular soap and notice a huge difference. His skin was very dry once he used the over the counter soap.
Rating: This is such a wonderful soap. I make a facial soap with it, using rose oil or lavender. It's also good for the body, but very few soaps can do what this does. The lactic acid has a very gentle, but definite exfoliating action. After a week or so, I've noticed my dry face is softer. That top layer of dead skin is sloughed away. No kidding!
Rating: I love this pure white soap base and so do my customers! Any soap made with this base is a hit, especially when you add NDA essential oils! Price of 25# block is more economical that my local supplier, even with shipping costs! Customers say it helps relieve dry itchy and problem skin and is mild enough for babies and children. Sets super fast so I can make multiple poured bars in one day - quickly filling customer orders. Thanks NDA - happy customers = more sales for me!

Rating: I used this for the first time and I found that I needed to work quickly since it would start setting fast. But I did like the creamy feel and moisturizing qualities, although the lather was needed to be worked.
Rating: I just love this Goats Milk base. It is amazing for very dry skin and hands. My hands would get so dry that they would crack and bleed and I would have to wrap them. I don't have to do that anymore thanks to your soap base. My customers also love this base. Don't change a thing with this. It holds color and scent very well. WILL absolutely be buying this base again.
Rating: I enjoy working with this soap and I love the prices, very reasonable for the amount you get! :)

Rating: Nice and creamy with lots of rich lather! Lovely for making layered bars too.
By:Naomi, Chatham, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This goat's milk base is one of the products I cannot keep in stock!! It's incredible & is perfect for my customers with problematic skin. One of my regular customers moved to San Diego & couldn't live without her goat's milk soap so she ordered like a dozen off my website as soon as she got there! She is spreading the word about how it's been great for her skin blemishes. I'm getting more orders every day! The most popular product I sell contains this goat's milk base with my fresh sage...it's a winner with my company Elixology!
Rating: Great creamy lather, takes the smells really sharply, moisturizing and is extremely easy to work with as it stays liquid for a long time. Great product!
By:Alexandra, Montréal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I tried the soap base first time last night and here are some of my observations:
- has a pretty weird, farm-like scent, but I do like it
- blends well with fragrances (tried with the strawberry fragrance & with lavender essential oil)
- blends well with colors (tried with sea green & red liquid colors)
- makes beautiful soaps
My overall rating 4 stars because of the listing of ingredients - key poin NDA makes is that it's made with 100% vegetable oils - should be listed in ingredients, and could be confusing to consumer (listed coconut oil use but not listed in ingredients).

Rating: I just used the Goats Milk Melt and Pour for the Little Jack O Lanterns! I love your prices for your Melt & Pour products. More than 50% less than another company that I deal with.
The essential oils and the fragrant oils I received are wonderful - I love it all.
I am one very, very happy camper! Thanks again NDA! Love you guys!
By:Brenda, North Bay, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I absolutely love this soap! Its moisturizing all by itself, without adding any moisturizers such as butters or oils! I did add several butters and the soap did not lather, so I make it that way and sell it as a Body Bar and then I add just a little and make it so it will lather! Love it overall!
Rating: The Goat Milk Soap is so nice and creamy. It also holds the color and the Vitamin E Oil that I put into it. When I first tried this soap it was so creamy and felt so good even on the face. I love this soap a lot. Kathleen Wild
Rating: Beautiful texture, takes color well, and scent. I've made around seven batches now of varying scents, and am so grateful for a wonderful and easy to work with product!

By:Kia, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I really love this soap a whole lot! I just made an experimental batch this weekend and it turned out really well! I called it an English Garden Tea Party soap, haha! It has rose geranium oil, bergamont oil and gourmet earl grey tea for a scrubby effect. I added extra essential oil because I thought the smell of the goat's milk was really powerful, but I was wrong! I didn't have to add any extra because this soap holds scents very well and the goat's milk smell is basically non-existant once you add EOs :)
Thanks ND for providing such a great product!
By:Christine, North Vancouver, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I'm making Christmas gifts for co-workers and this is my first venture into soap making. I made several types using this base and it took the EO very well and is a nice mild soap. I tried several soap bases and this is my favorite. I have sensitive skin and this is a great soap!
By:Beth, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio

Rating: Great product. Easy to work with and scents well, also is easy to add herbs and EO's to. White and creamy, lathers well, and leaves skin feeling great. The best Goat's Milk MP base I have ever used. Now that I have discovered NDA, I will only get my supplies from this company.
By:Jennifer, Utica, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Nov-2008
Rating: Goats milk is my favorite soap. I just love this product and will continue to buy it. Highly recommend.
Rating: Great melt and pour soap base. I love the packaging as it makes the soap easy to cut before melting. I added chamomile extract to my soap along with a carrier oil and EOs. The soap came out beautifully and the scent holds well. Also, I purchased one of your soap molds which was convenient as I did not need to use a mold release.
By:Brette, Georgetown, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Really like it but unfortunately it contains sles and I'm going to all sls/sles free soaps.But,if you don't mind them it is a wonderful soap that holds smell great and leaves your skin real soft.Still giving it an excellent rating as it is a super soap if you don't want true all natural.
Rating: This soap was so easy to use. As a first timer, I got absolutely fantastic results. I was afraid that it would be a messy and fussy process, instead it was an absolute pleasure. I can't wait to do more. Thanks for carrying such a great product!
Rating: I have been using New Directions goats milk soap base for 1/2 a year now and have produced 500+ bars of beautiful soap that have traveled to all parts of the world!
The consistency and workability are first class, it holds color and scent like no other base I have used.

Thank you, is excellent.
Rating: I love to brag about Stephenson\'s Goats Milk Soap Base When selling my Goats milk soaps. It is made of such good quality I feel confident when featuring it in my store. In fact I always feature it. It makes such a good presentation & it lives up to its flaunt. This goats milk soap base molds very well & grabs color fantastically. Stephenson\'s Goats Milk Soap Base also mixes very well with fragrance. I am so excited to have found it. I truly cannot keep it in stock. Thanks for such a reliable product!

Rating: Fantastic base! Very rich and luxurious with such a creamy lather you may never want to get out of the tub! I purchased the huge block and, while it was a bit cumbersome to handle, it was very easy to cut and I plan to buy another, since I'm already out (sniff!).
By:Marith, Berea, West Virginia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-May-2007
Rating: Of all the soap products I've ever made, this goats milk is the most highly requested. Moisturizing and gentle and doesnt dissolve as quickly as some other types, this is a must have for any soapmaker.

By:Karina, Richmond Hill, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Sep-2007
Rating: I've tried many different types of MP soap base, and this is the first to be a hit on all levels.. It was soft, and easy to slice, melted well, and definitely held colour and scent better than what I previously used. I agree I will probably order 2-lb bricks next time (the extra dollars are worth the time involved) but I have no complaints. A definite reorder!
By:Christina, Leamington, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is an excellent base for m&p soap making. I love it!! I plan to use it a lot in my soap making career.
a great quality soap.
Rating: Just like everyone said, this is a great product. It's moisturizing, and it cleans well. What I like the most about it, though, is that it doesn't leave soap scum on the soap dish for whatever reason. It doesn't crack, either, if I don't use it for a few days. It seems to last pretty well, too. It's definitely superior to regular soaps.
By:Tily, Palo Alto, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Sep-2006
Rating: A creamy and rich soap base. Good for big bar of soaps rather than little one because it melts faster than the other soap bases.
Still, a favorite of mine! :-)
By:Fanie, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is a gorgeous GM M&P base!! Melts nicely, holds scent and colour well. It is nice and soft, so it is easy to slice, although I would personally go with the smaller blocks in future orders, because cutting up the bulk bag of soap was very time-consuming. Has the most natural ingredients of any GM M&P I have come across. This will be my only GM base from now on!!!
