Our Little Homestead

About Us

One day several years ago I sat listening to the summer breeze blowing through the trees.  That is how our little ranch got it's name.  Whispering Winds Ranch is a small family run farm located in the Rio Grande Valley in Deep South Texas.  In the early 1900's our farm was once a rural three room schoolhouse.  The schoolhouse still remains today!  Our home was the house used by the teachers who traveled here to teach at the school.  Whispering Winds Ranch was established in 2003.  Besides raising five amazing children, we also raise cattle, Nigerian Dwarf goats, chickens, ducks and geese. 
 
We have a passion for sustainable living and living a simpler life.  By  making our handcrafted goat milk soaps and other products, we are able to share part of our lives with you!
 
Whispering Winds Ranch Goat Milk Soap is made from our own fresh goat milk, in our kitchen, using organic Shea Butter, organic Coconut Oil, and pure Olive Oil to nurish your skin. 
At Whispering Winds Ranch we use milk from our own herd of Nigerian Dwarf goats.  Nigerian Dwarves are known for their high butterfat milk, 4-9 % higher than standard dairy goats.  This extra creamy and rich milk makes exceptionally mild superfatted soap that nourishes the skin.

We make all of our soap in small batches to ensure the best quality.  We hand make, pour, and cut each bar.  Due to the nature of handcrafted goat milk soap, slight variations in shape, color and weight may occure.  All of our soaps range from 5 oz. to 7 oz.

Benifits of Goat Milk Soap

For centuries goat milk has been used as a luxurious moisturizer.  Legend has it that Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt, indulged in daily goat milk baths.
Goat's milk is an excellent source of calcium, amino acids, magnesium, protein, phosporus, potassium, selinium, zinc, and iron.  It is rich in vitamins A, B1, B6, B12, C, D and E.
The alpha-hydroxy acids found in goat milk break down dead skin cells, removing them from the skin's surface and leaves behind new smoother, youthful appearing cells.  Studies have shown that goat milk is effective for treating acne and other skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis.  Goat milk has anti-bacterial properties as well.  These anti-bacterial properties delay and deminish the growth of microbial organisims that spur the spread of acne.

Our handcrafted goat milk soap has another basic advantage over big-brand commercial soaps, glycerin.  All soap is made by combining fat with an alkali.  During the saponification process, the fat turns into soap and glycerin.  In commercial soaps this gylcerin is typically removed to be used in more profitable products.  In handmade soap, the glycerin remains, providing deep moisturizing benefits.  All handmade soaps have advantages over the commercial soaps, however goat milk soap offers even more.  All milk contains natural emollients, vitamins and triglycerides that moisturize the skin.  Goat milk specifically contains capric-caprylic triglyceride, a highly effective moisturizer.  People who prefer goat milk soap claim that it is far less drying and milder than ordinary soaps, especially for those who have sensitive skin or eczema.
The best goat milk soaps are made from fresh, not powdered goat milk.  All of our soaps here at Whispering Winds Ranch are always made with 100% fresh creamy goat milk from our own small herd of Nigerian Dwarf goats.
