About Contrary’s Whey Goat Milk Soap
100% Pure Ingredients
All of the oils used in making Contrary’s Whey Goat Milk Soap, including olive, coconut, castor, wheat germ, and the shea butter, are 100% pure, and sourced from a company that adheres to FDA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Oils and fats are required in the process of soap making and are normally bland smelling.
In contrast, “essential oils” extracted from herbs and flowers are not required in the soap making process. Essential oils and fragrances are mixtures of natural or synthetic compounds that impart a scent to the final product. Contrary’s Whey Farm’s soap formula does not include essential oils, fragrances, or colorants.

GMO-Free Goat Milk
Because the goats’ main diet is pasture and hay, supplemented minimally with organic grain when necessary, the goat milk is non-GMO.

“I wanted to let you know how much I like Contrary’s Whey soap. As you know, I got several bars recently, both for myself and to give as gifts. In fact, I liked using it so much I bought two more bars to give to friends. After using the soap, my skin—which is very dry at this time of year—felt so soft. I also like the fact that the soap is fragrance-free. It’s great for my finicky friends and also for any, like me, who have sensitivities. In addition to the lovely soap, the packaging is also nice. The first thing my sister-in-law said when she opened hers was, “I love the package”. The recyclable box is perfect and complements the whimsical picture of the goats very nicely. You have a great product! Thanks so much!”
