The Gamrie Goat’ is a natural goats-milk soap; skin cream and lotions handmade by me on our family croft on the beautiful Moray coast in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

The goats: Goldie, Myrrh, Snowy, Sunny, Foggy, Blizzard, Balmy, Gale, Frosty, Cirrus, and Nimbus (Oh and their pal, Storm, -a rejected lamb), sleep in our barn at night, or when it’s raining, and graze on our pastures when the sun shines.

The Gamrie Goats

I originally devised the soap to use for myself. I have sensitive skin and hadn’t used soap for years. I found commercial soaps at best drying on my skin and at worst making it red, itchy and sore. Knowing that goat’s milk has an age-old reputation of being good for the skin I began experimenting until I came up with this truly excellent skincare soap. The idea of selling the soap really grew out of a need to find some way to pay their feed bills. I came up with my recipe after many months of trial and error, and then made sure that it complied with current cosmetics regulations by having it independently assessed by one of the biggest cosmetic testing laboratories in the country (You might be surprised how many small producers don’t bother with that bit!)

Oh and when I say “hand-made” I really mean just that. Each morning and evening I milk the goats the old fashioned way; by hand, sitting on a stool in the doorway of the barn. I then blend the milk with the best oils and butters that I can find, including shea butter, cocoa butter and olive oil; I do not add scents or colours of any kind as these can irritate the skin. I then mould it, pack it, and either sell it myself from a stall at the local Farmer’s Market, or increasingly nowadays, ship it out to shops and individual customers both locally and around the world.

It’s been really surprising how quickly this whole thing has “taken off”; already I have been featured several times in the press and the orders just keep pouring in, so maybe it’s true what they say happens if you “build a better mouse-trap”. All I know is that people keep coming back for more. Many people with sensitive skin and other skin conditions have got in touch with me to say that they find that they can use this soap and find it mild and moisturizing. (Of course everyone’s skin is different so I can make no specific claims for it – this is just what people report back to me!)

I also get asked a couple of questions quite regularly and I answer these on the 'Help and FAQs' page. Anyway, thank you for reading my Home page. It is a lovely soap for all skins, and if you need any more convincing send me a stamped, self-addressed envelope and I will send you a small free sample to try for yourself. I hope that you have found all the information you require – if not, please contact me - I’ll be pleased to hear from you.
Thank you for your interest.
