Noir Naturals Goat’s Milk Lotion – always made from scratch

All of our lotions are available in travel, 4, and 8 oz. sizes.

All of our lotions are available in travel, 4, and 8 oz. sizes.

We at Noir Naturals take pride in doing things the old-fashioned way. We use only fresh goat’s milk from organically-fed goats in our goat’s milk products and only fresh coconut milk in our coconut milk soaps.  It may take longer, but we skip the shortcuts in the name of quality.  It’s the same approach we take with our goat’s milk lotions.  We skip premade lotion bases and make ours from scratch.
Premade lotion bases are not our thing. Even though the ingredients are listed on the label, companies do not list where the ingredients come from.  By making our own lotion base, we know exactly what goes into it and where all the ingredients come from.  We refuse to take shortcuts.
Back in the day, lotions were handcrafted from oils, butters, and liquids. We embrace the old way and make each batch of lotion from water, fresh raw goat’s milk, organic Shea butter, Safflower and Meadowfoam oils, emulsifying wax, Stearic Acid, and a preservative.  We make each base as we make each batch.  We add additional fragrance and essential oils for our scented lotions, and include additional moisturizing butters and oils for our Blue Angel lotions.  Our lotions are free of dyes, pigments, and parabens and are packaged as soon as each batch is ready.

View our inventory and find the right lotion for your needs.  We currently offer travel, 4 oz., and 8 oz. sizes and have a larger size coming soon.

What’s in your lotion?

Goodbye, Moses

We hate to make this announcement, but we are discontinuing Moses Goat’s Milk Soap.  The scent we use for this oatmeal, goat’s milk, and honey favorite was discontinued without notice, so what we have on hand is it.  Once they’re gone, they’re gone.
We are working on a new blend, so keep your eyes open.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Blue Angel Goat’s Milk Lotion Isn’t Just for Caregivers

Blue Angel was formulated for caregivers, but is also perfect for anyone who works hard and washes his or her hands frequently.This intensive formula is available in Lavender and unscented versions.

Blue Angel was formulated for caregivers, but is also perfect for anyone who works hard and washes his or her hands frequently.
This intensive formula is available in Lavender and unscented versions.

This Winter has been something else, eh? And if you have dry skin, it’s been murder.  Caregivers, cooks, and any others who wash his or her hands frequently are feeling the pain as well.  Sometimes regular lotion isn’t enough and heavy creams may be too much during the work hours.  Enter Blue Angel, a goat’s milk lotion inspired by nurses and mean for anyone dealing with dry, cracked damaged skin.

This hand lotion formula was inspired by the nurses at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX.  These angels work hard to help patients through every stage of the healing process.  They wash their hands dozens of times a day and then some, which strips away moisture.  We wanted to create something that helped keep their skin moisturized between applications.  Blue Angel is packed with some of the most moisturizing and healing butters and oils available. Mango, cocoa, and unrefined organic Shea butter blend with Jojoba, Meadowfoam, Safflower, and Vitamin E oils to form a creamy lotion.  And we add an extra healing kick with the addition of goat’s milk.

Kathy in Woodlands, TX tried Blue Angel and is sold:

I’ve been a hospital nurse for most of my career and have always endured dry and sometimes blistered hands. We are required to wash our hands and use hand sanitizers constantly at the hospital and my hands dry out so much. In all my years I have not found anything to keep my hands moist. Your sample lotion has sold me! My hands stay moist and soft and has completely healed. I will definitely be a long time customer. Thank you.

Blue Angel is available in both unscented and lavender formulas and is $15 for a bottle. Try it and heal your skin.   The formula is intensive and highly concentrated – a small amount works wonders!
