Our soaps and lotions are made from MR Goatfeathers’ own fresh goat milk. We use all natural oils, essential oils and fragrance oils for our products. We hope you enjoy our products and take a moment to learn more about our mission to give back. After all, life is a ride, jump on, enjoy and find a way to help others!
My husband and I started with Goats in the Spring of 2015 and quickly became addicted! I wanted to learn to make goat milk products for my family and to give away to friends. Our son has battled eczema all of his life and I had read how goat milk products were good for the skin! My friend was a missionary and I talked to her about my plan for goat soap. She wanted to help and possibly figure a way to use what we learned to help the local women in Uganda (where she goes on mission trips) to make soap as a means of support. We both love missions and decided to turn this hobby into a business and use our profits to support the mission projects that are close to our hearts. If we were going to have a business then we needed a name. Embuzi is the Luganda word for goat and since missions was our reason to start… Embuzi Soap Company was born!
How We Make Our Soap
We use only fresh goat’s milk provided by our sweet mama’s on the farm. Twice a day you can find Melissa or Kim in the barn collecting that day’s supply of fresh goat’s milk.
Our soaps contain a whopping 38% of raw goat’s milk for every batch we make. The remaining ingredients are pure, natural saponified coconut, palm, castor, and olive oils. We also add our unique blends of herbs and essential oils to create our favorite scents. We use fragrance oils as well for some awesome scents as well.
We create small batches using a “cold process” technique allowing the soap to cure for 6 weeks before being used. Our soaps are hand-mixed, poured and cut so each soap may vary slightly in color. We also weigh our soaps after the curing process when most of the moisture has evaporated to ensure each bar weighs atleast 4 oz when sold.
All our products are researched, designed, measured, poured, cut and cured on the farm in Flowery Branch, Georgia.
