Hi this is Karen & John and welcome to Alpine Body Care! Home of the Handcrafted Luxurious Goat Milk & Liquid soaps! We are a family owned and operated small business. The milk we use is the freshest you can get from their own herd of dairy goats. Their soaps are crafted with luscious oils and butters. Your Skin Will Thank You! Mine did.
Here's how Alpine Body Care came about. As the story goes for so many, we wanted to live a healthier lifestyle having health issues John and Karen started a homestead where they have lots of different animals, but it’s the small herd of Alpine Dairy Goats that have changed things on the homestead.
Some years back John and Karen were visiting a local farm to pick up some guinea fowl and the young lady on the farm and Karen discovered they had similar health issues, one being Karen was not able to consume dairy products. The young lady asked if she had tried goat milk, cause the proteins in goat milk are easier to digest. The young lady grew up raising alpine dairy goats, asked Karen if she would like to try some milk, and Karen said yes. The young lady sent Karen home with a gallon. Karen found that she liked it and had no issues. John and Karen would visit the farm about once a week to buy some goat milk. On one of the visits John asked the young lady if she ever has any for sale, she said I’ll have two does for sale in a couple weeks. Well John and Karen bought those two does.
When the two does were old enough to breed, they were bred. After the babies were born and didn’t require their mother’s milk any longer, John and Karen had an abundance of milk and looked into what they could do with it so, Karen started making ice cream, cheese and other goodies. We were using commercial soaps (not soap at all) we found them to be so drying and full of chemicals, well they are detergents. After doing a lot of research Karen jumped in with both feet and tried her hand at making Goat Milk Soap, she was hooked! Not to mention all the skin loving benefits goat milk has for your skin and that’s when Alpine Body Care was established. Karen began making goat milk soap in 2014.
Alpine Body Care strives to produce an excellent product right here in the United States. All their Soaps are made in house with 100% Fresh Goat Milk from their own herd of Alpine Dairy Goats using sustainable skin loving ingredients You'll Love! John and Karen started giving the soap to family and friends as presents so they could also enjoy some of the rewards of the Goat Milk Soap. Everyone loved the luxurious feel of the all-natural handmade soap.
Now they want to bring there wonderful soap to all you folks to enjoy. John and Karen decided to start a business selling their all-natural soap so more people could have a chance to experience the rewards of the homestead life without all the hard work that John and Karen put in.
Thank you for stopping by & supporting our small business.
