Goat milk contains alpha-hydroxy acids which helps to break down the glue that holds dead skin cells together. Usually when people have sensitive skin, its because something is stuck on that glue. The alpha hydroxy acid removes the glue in turn removing the irritation leaving new cells on the surface of your skin that are smoother and younger looking.- Cream.
