Ingredients Deep Dive into my Goat Milk Cream via EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database

http://www.somethinspecial.com/product-p/prod33.htm
Today we are deep diving into the ingredients in my Goat Milk Cream. Full disclosure, I do not make any of my lotion bases, instead I research samples from many, many different companies and then I choose the best ones. You will NEVER receive a runny, watery lotion from me.

In case you were wondering who EWG Skin Deep is, it is my go to resource if I have any questions about an ingredient, with the 2nd being Wikipedia. They use the power of information to protect human health and the environment. Their database gives you practical information to protect yourself and your family from everyday exposures to chemicals. They have an easy to understand rating system:
And also understand, when listing ingredients, it is done by quantity. So the first few ingredients make up most of the product, while the last few are in the smallest percentages.

Here's a deep dive of each individual ingredient in my goat milk cream. I remember when I first got this sample, I started offering it in my monthly sample sets and it was so popular, many people asked me to add it the permanent lotions category.  It is one of my personal favorites.
