WHO WE ARE
We are a small family business located in Hilltown, Pennsylvania. Essential Sower Soap Company is owned and operated by a mom (Carla) and daughter team (Dayna and Crystalrae). This all began with the purchase of two Nigerian Dwarf Goats in the fall of 2015. Nigerian Dwarf Goats (while being super cute), are great milkers, and their milk can be used in a variety of ways. Because their family has all sorts of skin; young and old, acne stricken, baby skin, dry and cracking...they decided to make some lotion with goat milk. Goat milk has many benefits for the skin. After experimenting with a few recipes, they found the perfect blend. It was important to stay true to using natural additives without harmful chemicals, and being Paraben Free. After giving some as gifts, things really took off as people loved the lotions. Since then Essential Sower Soap Company has expanded to other products, such as soap, scrubs, and lip products.
The name is derived from the Parable of the Sower; Mark 4:10-20. In addition, only the essentials are used...the absolutes that the skin and body need. No harsh chemicals, no yucky preservatives.

Raw goat milk can have many benefits on the skin. It's especially great for people with dry or sensitive skin, or conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Goat milk is also great for maintaining healthy skin. It contains alpha-hydroxy acids which aid in removing dead skin cells from the skin's surface. This will leave the new cells on the surface for a fresh and smoother looking skin. There are many vitamins in Goat Milk, notably Vitamin A which repairs damaged skin cells and helps to maintain healthy skin. It also has a high content of fat molecules which are a great moisturizer. Lastly, Goat Milk has the mineral selenium which may have a role in helping to prevent skin cancer.
