Our families have suffered from allergies for so long and we were getting tired of taking too many medicines and suffering, yet again, from adverse reactions to all those medications. We thought it would be best to use natural products. In fact, that is our motto when we make our soaps - using nature's gifts the way they were intended to be - natural and organic.
We spoke of getting goats for a long time before they actually came. When they did, we suddenly found ourselves drowning in milk. That was when we decided to make natural and organic fresh goat milk soaps. We thought it was a great way to solve the issue of having to use products which contained a lot of chemicals. We knew we wanted the best natural and organic goat milk soap we could make and use for our own families. We experimented and used the best ingredients - fresh goat milk, olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil and essential oils we could get. We only use fresh goat milk from our own goats to get all the natural vitamins of the goat milk. Then we use olive oil which is great for the hair and is well known to help moisturize our skin. We added coconut oil which is also fantastic for the hair and complexion. Coconut oil has been lauded to be a natural ingredient to attain soft skin and shiny hair. We also use sustainable palm oil which helps make all our soap bars the great bars they are. We also use essential oils for their many different benefits for our distinguished customers. The oils we use all have different vitamins which help give our customers the soft skin and great hair. The skin is the largest organ of the body and therefore, we took great care in choosing the different oils to make our soaps. We only wanted the best.
We make everything ourselves - the natural way. In time, the hobby grew into something larger. It still is growing with your help. We still make all the natural and organic goat milk soaps ourselves. We truly enjoy doing what we do, and take pride in all our goat milk soap products. We want you to use and enjoy what we use for our own families.
We want to thank everyone who has been a part of Caprine Artisan Soaps. To all those who supported, encouraged, stayed with us through everything, and cheered us on when we needed it the most - thank you so much.

I wanted to share my experience with the best soap made. My husband is allergic to almost everything and has really sensitive skin. We happened by the Caprine Artisan Soaps booth at the second Saturday sale they have in Georgetown. I think it starts back up in March. Anyway, the soap is fantastic. Well worth the money. My husband's rosacea has cleared up and his skin actually looks much smoother and younger. They have all different kinds of soap you can try but my husband uses the one called Love My Face. It's scent free and very gentle. I order it online when the Georgetown second Saturday isn't happening. Give it a try it's really worth it.

Recently had a friend send over the "Love My Face" for our daughter as she was experiencing skin problems on her face and within 2 weeks using this product all was relived. Will be trying most of products and spreading the word. Wonderful Product!

I have been using Caprine Artisan Soap for the last two weeks, both on my body and in my hair. I have to say that my skin had not developed the typical "winter itch" that comes with cold weather and hot showers. It's soft and really hasn't required lotion - aside from my hands which are washed with other soaps at work. The best part? My hair. Because the soap is made from goat milk and natural oils, all of the usual chemicals found in hair products have been nearly eliminated. For the first week and while my hair was adapting to change, it went through a very thick and bloated stage. Although it was unusual at first, braids in the evening before bed left a gorgeous wave in the morning! The texture has evened out now and feels incredible, soft, and maintains so much more body through out the day. The stylist who has been cutting my hair for years was amazed when I went for a trim. She has always loved my hair but had also noticed how it had begun to thin. Thank you, Lily Ann, for sharing your amazing product with our community. The essential oil combinations smell absolutely incredible, and certainly, I am glad to know that the milk comes from your local goats, and your honey is Round Rock Honey. The decision is obviously natural!! Great for body, hair, peace of mind, and the community. #caprineartisansoaps #roundrockhoney

One of our regular customers, Stephanie Z, came to the St William's Arts & Crafts to get her "supply" of soaps. She was a little shy about giving us a video review but said this:
"I have tried lots of other goat milk soaps but none compares to Caprine Artisan Soaps. My hair is so shiny now and my skin is so soft after I started using these soaps. My favorite is Regina but I also love Bridgette, Purple Passion and Hudson Valley Mist. "
Stephanie Z, Round Rock, TX , USA
Thank you for "No Bites" soap. It has been a life saver against those pesky mosquitoes!! I apply before I go outside, and they land on me, and bounce right off, it's like the soap says, "Buzz Off, Dude!!"
BB, Round Rock, TX, USA
My favorite beauty soap! It really makes my skin so smooth and healthy. Try and you'll be happy that you did.
Jacqueline M, IL, USA

Eva A, Pflugerville, TX, USA
My favorite ........good on my sensitive skin!!! all their soap bars are great.. but this is my favorite!
Jann Windsor, CA, USA
Texas Hill Country is my miracle soap for my asthma skin blemishes. I love the other "Caprine" soaps too but "Texas" was the answer to my skin insecurities.
Jessica Espayos, Calgary AB, Canada
Thank you so much for your new creation, Fatima. It even surpasses my favorite Caprine artisan soap , which is Fleur de Lys. It is so soft and loving to my dry skin. Sometimes I hold the bar of soap next to my cheek and feel like the young lady in the commercial. It certainly does rejuvenate my dry skin. And as a 60 year old man who has spent many years outside in the west Texas sun, I need all the help that I can get. Thank you again for your loving creation.

I just wanted to let you know that the shampoo works fine on my youngest Yorkie. I do like it for Becca, and will use it on her. Thank you again for sending this to me.
Maureen B, AZ , USA
I wanted to let you know about my latest experience with schatzie suds. My dog was scratching furiously for a few days. I gave her a bath with your soap. I was amazed at the number of fleas she had. She is an inside dog and rarely goes outside except to use the bathroom. The moment the soap touched the fleas they died. It not only killed the adult fleas, it also washed away the eggs.
Thank you for this wonderful product.
Joann Wiener, USA
Fleur de Lis is my favorite bath soap, in fact it the only one that I can use. I have very sensitive skin. I have to use liquid laundry soap that is free of perfumes and I have to put the clothes through two extra rinse cycles with no fabric softner. Otherwise I have an allergenic reaction to the clothes. Up until Fleur de Lis, I had never found a bath soap that did not leave me with dry and itching skin even after continued rinsing. Now my skin is moist and soft and vibrant and healthy. Friends say that I look younger and have less wrinkles. To say the least, I feel younger and have more vigor. I would recommend all of the Caprine Artisan soaps. They make great gifts.

Since I started menopause several years ago my skin become very dry although I always had oily skin prior to that. So that hit me very hard. The other thing is that my hair always have a lot of body prior to menopause. But one of the things I love that Hudson Valley Mist soap made my hair, gave it a lot of body! My hair bounced back from limp. I already feel better using your soaps!
Mary C, Georgetown, TX , USA
I am amazed at the performance and versatility of your liquid artisan soap, Bali Escape- for many reasons. First, I bought it for a hand soap in the bathroom because it smelled good and left my hands soft. Well one day, I came in from the garage with my hands all greasy from changing by brake pads and did not have the time to go back out to garage and use my industrial strength soap with its grit and harshness. I grabbed the Bali Escape and in a blink of an eye the grease and dirt just fell off my hands before I could even wash it or dilute it with water. Amazing. I did have to rinse off the last of the emulsified dirt and grease. I did not have to wash my hands a second time though.
Biff Jones, Georgetown, TX , USA
Thank you for making your product. I recently wrote a comment on your website regarding the "Love My Face " soap. Since using this product, my face is softer and smoother than it has been since grade school. I no longer use make-up. I also use this soap on my arms. I have psoriasis. Since using this product my arm is almost completely healed. Thanks again for such a wonderful product.
I wanted to let you know what a difference your soaps have made in my life. I use the "Love My Face" daily. I no longer where make-up and my face is smoother than it was when I was young (I'm 62 now). I also use this soap on my psoriasis that is on my arm. After 4 weeks all bumps were gone. Only a little redness remained. I then used "Texas Hill Country" The results were amazing. In 1 week all redness was gone. Thank you for your wonderful products. You have been a God send for me.
Joann Wiener, TX , USA
My mother heard from a friend that "Love My Face" soap was great for acne and dry skin. It really works for I do not need to use the prescribed lotion that I was using on my face. The soap works great also on body acne. Thank You!!!
Zeke Almanza, Pflugerville, TX, USA

We were there on Saturday so it must have been the Bridgette that smelled soooo good. Thank you so much. Merry Christmas to you. I received several bars of your soap in my Christmas stocking. AWESOME!
Barbara Hundley, Georgetown, TX, USA
I used Caprine Artisan soap (Bridgette) today. I love, love, love it! You're right about how great it is as a shampoo. I love the way that I don't feel any residue in my hair and my scalp. Smells good too!! Great product! Yey!

Hi! I absolutely love the Breakfast Bar soap and would love to purchase more.
Elena B, Austin, TX , USA
I just want you to know that I thoroughly enjoyed that soap… The purple passion
That was the best smelling soap I've ever used in my whole life & every single day that I used it I had a good day!
Feel free to use this in any advertising that you want because I would like the world to know that your purple passion soap is the most delicious smelling soap in the whole wide world
It also made my skin very soft
I was very squeamish about using anything other than what I usually buy from the store
But I absolutely fell in love with the soap and can't wait to buy some more
Thank you for your wonderful customer service as well.
Crystal, Austin, TX , USA
Thank you ever so much for the soap. I'm not kidding when I say I LOVE it! I used it last night for the first time from head to toe and I honestly felt like I had had a little spa time when it was over. It was so creamy and smooth. The best soap I've ever used. Thank you! I was bragging about it today over lunch. I absolutely would like to purchase several other bars.
Best to you!

F A Q
What are the ingredients of the soaps?
All our soaps are handmade with fresh goat milk, olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, essential oils, and fragrance oils. Essential oils are obtained from plants for their beneficial properties and the oil also carries the scent of the plant. Essential oils are volatile oils because they evaporate quickly when exposed to air. Fragrance oil is a synthetic version of an essential oil. They do not offer the same therapeutic benefits as an essential oil but they do keep their lovely scents longer. Caprine Artisan Soaps uses a combination of essential and fragrance oils. Essential oils are very expensive. Some are so expensive that they are prohibitive to use in cold process soap making which is the best method. We use essential oils in our soaps as much as possible and whenever possible to offer the oils' therapeutic benefits to our customers. Fragrance oils are all about scent! They have the staying power that essential oils often lack. Fragrance oils are also ecologically friendly. Many plants that are used for essential oils are rare or endangered. Fragrance oils solve the problem of overusing these resources.
How much does each bar weigh?
All our bars weigh between 4.5 - 5 oz when cut. Soaps lose moisture as they cure and all our soaps are guaranteed cured for 8 weeks. Weights will vary when shipped. They become better as they cure because they become harder soaps and therefore will last even longer.
We offer free shipping on orders of $50 and up prior to taxes and ship first class. Priority mail via USPS is an option offered to customers and package should get to you in 3 business days within the Continental US. We ship within 1-2 days of placing your order, and will send you an email of shipping confirmation as well as a tracking information. For shipping pricing to other countries than USA, Canada, Germany, The Netherlands, Indonesia, Singapore, Scotland (Great Britain & Ireland), Switzerland and UAE, please contact us using the Contact Us button.

How to use goat milk soap?
All our fresh goat milk soaps are moisturizing body soaps which may also be used to cleanse your face and shampoo your hair. It is a very effective and gentle make-up and lipstick/lip color remover without any harsh chemicals. Our customers also find that they use less lotions, if any, after using our fresh goat milk soaps. They also find that it is more economical to use our fresh goat milk soaps than commercially made soaps because of the many benefits our fresh goat milk soaps provide.
Storage of fresh goat milk soaps:
Natural and organic fresh goat milk soaps need to breathe. If need be, it is highly recommended that you wrap the fresh goat milk soaps with paper and avoid using any plastic material. In case, you use plastic material to wrap them, please air them as soon as possible. Do not leave them in your car especially during hot weather. Please keep the fresh goat milk soaps dry after each use to extend the life of the fresh goat milk soap. We highly recommend the use of soap savers to help extend the life of the fresh goat milk soap. Their scents lasts a very long time. If you have to store them, please store them at a non-humid room away from sunlight.
What about skin allergies?
If you have sensitive skin or allergies to essential oils, please apply to a small area of your arm before using any of our fresh goat milk soaps. Most people find that they are able to use our fresh goat milk soaps without any problems but do proceed with caution. Should any allergies occur, stop immediately. We do carry a variety of fresh goat milk soaps that are fragrance-free which should be great for those with very sensitive skin.
Can dogs use our goat milk soaps?
We highly recommend the use of our fresh goat milk soaps to dogs. In fact, we have a special fresh goat milk soap bar for the beloved dogs of our customers - Schatzie's Suds.
What is the difference between commercial soaps and fresh goat milk soaps?
First, Caprine Artisan Soaps are made with organic and natural ingredients. Fresh goat milk contains a lot of vitamins like Vitamins A, D, B6, B12, Nicotinic Acid, Choline, Panthotheine, Folic Acid, Ascorbic Acid, Thiamine, Riboflavin and Biotin, Inositol - just to name a few. It is particularly high in Vitamin A which is very effective in helping treat and prevent skin disorders; helps prevent premature aging; helps in the maintenance of our skin; and helps stimulate the production of sebum which keeps the skin moisturized.
Second, it is recommended for people who have skin problems like rash, acne, eczema, psoriasis, etc. to use skin-friendly fresh goat milk soap. Fresh goat milk soap doesn't contain any harsh chemicals or any additives such as alcohol, petroleum, and preservatives; thus, it reduces the risk factors of having skin irritation and allergic reactions.
Third, fresh goat milk has a high moisturizing capability because it is naturally creamy. Dry skin is a major skin problem and many people suffer from it. Goat milk soap will never dry out the skin like commercial soaps; but, instead will moisturize your skin intensely. Goat milk soap naturally contains glycerin which is known to aid in softening the skin.
Fourth, fresh goat milk soap has alpha hydroxy acid. This alpha hydroxy acid is generally found in skin rejuvenation products. It helps break down the substance which holds dead skin cells together - like a natural exfoliant. Hence, it rejuvenates the skin and leaves new cells at the surface. Some commercially made soaps may add chemicals to achieve the same effect but obviously, this will have many side effects, one of which is skin damage.
Fifth, fresh goat milk contains selenium. Selenium has been known to help prevent skin cancer.
Sixth, fresh goat milk contains proteins which aid in keeping your skin free of bacteria that causes acne.
