Goat milk is a common ingredient that is usually used in making soaps and cream. The Hausas in Nigeria use it in preparing a drink called 'Wura' but I'm interested in its benefits to the skin.
Nowadays, companies use it more as a lightening agent but it is a great moisturizer and very good for people with dry or sensitive skin.
It is quite useful for treating acne, sun burns and can be used to lighten spots. But it is quite difficult to get it in its raw form as goat milk production and processing is not quite popular in this part of the world. 
But you can get it from local farmers who milk goats or the processed/canned form  can be gotten from stores.I once purchased K-brothers goat milk soap and I absolutely loved it. I have been unable to get my hands on it again, but I have used other brands that are equally amazing.
Here is a facial recipe that you would absolutely love. 

Make a paste with canned fresh
goat's milk, baking soda and honey.
Apply on the face in circular motions, avoiding the eye area. 
Leave on the face for 10-20 mins, then wash off with warm water.

This recipe is great for both exfoliating, moisturizing, clearing spots and treating acne. 
I prefer organic or home made goat milk soaps and creams because it is usually made from raw goat milk and only essential or carrier oils are added hence you can select the fragrance or type you prefer. You can also get results in a short time.
