Introducing Goatboy Soaps, Highly Recommended by Whom You Know!

I am a complete sucker for natural and handmade soaps! Goatboy’s goat milk and shea butter soaps do not disappoint. They’re moisturizing and cleansing, and come in a variety of great scents. The Honey Oatmeal has a nice, mild scent. Its scent comes naturally from the ingredients (honey and oatmeal). It is a mellow, non-irritating option for those sensitive to added scents. Both the Serious Citrus and Red Clover Tea will awaken and invigorate you with their fresh scents. The Red Clover Tea has a sweet, yet invigorating fragrance. The Serious Citrus is true to its name: Seriously Citrus-y, but not overpoweringly so. It’s just enough of a crisp scent to rejuvenate you any time of day. Check out all the Goatboy Soaps scents!

I can't remember the last time I used a bar of soap. In this day and age, there are all kinds of fancy shower gels and body scrubs, so bar soap has kind of taken a back seat. Well, thanks to Goatboy Soaps in New Milford, CT, I might just be changing my tune! Their soaps are handcrafted in small batches, using all-natural ingredients. Of course, goat milk is one of them, but honey and shea butter are also in the mix, along with saponified oils, essential oils, or all-natural fragrances. I have had the pleasure of trying three different soaps, and have found all of them absolutely delightful. The first one I tried was the Red Clover Tea, which is their most popular scent, and then I tried the Honey Oatmeal, and finally, I tried the Serious Citrus. All three lathered up beautifully, and left my skin feeling soft and refreshed. The Red Clover Tea scent was soft and sweet, the Serious Citrus (made with orange, lemon, lime, and tangerine), was bright and refreshing, and the Honey Oatmeal (which has real pieces of oatmeal in it), has no fragrance added besides the natural scents of the honey and the oatmeal, so it is a very mild, calming scent. I truly can't decide which is my favorite, but I will definitely be using all three of them regularly!

Let's face it, it's hot outside and there is nothing worse than feeling sticky, slimy and dirty. If you are like me than you probably take two showers a day in the summertime heat. All that showering can be rough and using body wash really drys out my skin. I was really excited to try the wonderful smelling Goatboy Soaps. These all natural soaps are made with fresh while goat's milk, vegetable oils and Shea butter. They are awesome. Producing a rich creamy lather and softness that lasts, I have totally changed my opinion on bar soap. Goatboy Soap offers scents for every taste. I tried Serious Citrus a refreshing and light scent, Red Clover Tea, a sweet and creamy scent, and unscented Honey Oatmeal with a natural scent of honey. They are all so good it's hard to pick a favorite. Once you try this great product for yourself, I promise you'll never look at bar soap the same. 

I love trying out new beauty products, especially ones that are handcrafted right here in the USA! If you haven't yet heard of Goatboy soaps, you need to head on over to and check them out. I am head over heels in love with these products now and highly recommend them! To date I have tried three Goatboy soaps: Red Clover Tea, Serious Citrus, and Honey Oatmeal. All three soaps were winners in my book, but if I had to choose one, it would definitely be the Red Clover Tea which just so happens to be their bestseller. All Goatboy Soaps are handcrafted with fresh whole goat's milk, vegetable oils and shea butter. They are handmade in small batches and PH tested for mildness. Goatboy products are never tested on animals and are made right in New Milford, CT. Family owned and run, Goatboy came about when a mom was searching for products for her allergy-laden son (he couldn't tolerate cow's milk or soy). Their products are gentle, efficient, affordable (!!!) and oh-so-good for your skin and your spirit...just smelling them will make you happy! Give Goatboy a'll become a fast fan, I promise!


Goatboy Soaps, LLC began with a search for alternative food products for our severely allergic son. Bobby was able to tolerate Goat Milk and quickly became obsessed with all things goat. We happened upon Goat Milk Soap and loved what it did for our skin. When Rick returned from a business trip and announced that he would no longer travel without bringing his own soap I began my own research. I found that many Soap-makers use powdered Goat Milk rather than the real thing. In addition, many use lard and preservatives. I set out to make my family Goat Milk Soap with great natural ingredients. I used Fresh Whole Goat Milk, Olive Oil for moisture, Coconut Oil for lather and Palm Oil for a hard long lasting bar. Finally I added Shea Butter, which is just unbelievably good for your skin. We shared a few bars with friends and they began telling their friends about the wonderful, long-lasting creamy soaps. Suddenly we found ourselves in business! Our oldest son, Ryan, drew us a logo and we called the company Goatboy. I joke about a hobby gone bad! Thanks to Goatboy's obsession and a teacher who encouraged him to follow his passion we now have our own herd of dairy goats. Farmer Rick left his stressful job, followed his passion, and joined me in 2004. We have never worked harder, had more fun or met nicer people! Our goats get the finest care and premium feeds because we believe that you get out what you put in and we want the richest goats milk possible. Of course, they bathe with Goatboy Tea Tree Oil soap and we get many compliments on their beautiful coats. Try Goatboy Soap! Use it everyday because your skin deserves the best and really, life is too short to dust soap.
