Like most kids who grew up in the 80s, I was raised drinking cow’s milk. It was not until three decades later that I tried sheep milk for the first time. Back in 2011 when we started our homesteading journey and welcomed our first sheep, I was pleasantly surprised to discover the many health benefits of sheep milk. Did you know that sheep milk contains double the protein and calcium than cow or goat milk? It is also richer in vitamins A, B, and E, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium. Another interesting thing about sheep milk is that the fat globules found in the milk are smaller than those in cow and goat milk, which makes it easier to digest. And how about the taste? Definitely the sweetest and creamiest milk I have ever drank! Sheep milk contains double the amount of fat in comparison to cow or goat milk and it has medium chain triglycerides that help the body in reducing high cholesterol levels. The high fat content in sheep milk makes it amazingly nourishing and moisturizing for your skin. Milk has been used for centuries as a beauty aid and has been praised for its skin healing benefits and anti-aging properties. Because of its high concentration of vitamins, minerals, protein, and butterfat, sheep milk is the premier choice to incorporate in your health and beauty regimen.
Here at the Sheep Shop, we use milk from East Friesian sheep to make our line of luxurious skin care sheep milk products. Our rich and creamy soaps, sugar scrubs, fizzies, and bath soaks are made in small batches in our Vermont home with high quality and all-natural ingredients. All of our soaps and body care products will soften, nourish, moisturize, and rejuvenate your skin, giving it a healthy and youthful glow.
