Baby goats have been a social media sensation for years — remember when goat yoga classes took over our feeds? But their powers extend beyond just frolicking around yogis and posing in pajamas. It turns out, goat's milk is a nourishing skincare ingredient because it contains high amounts of lactic acid that can clear away dead skin cells for softer, younger-looking skin. Goat's milk is also full of vitamin A, which is particularly helpful for acne and fine lines.
So it's no surprise that Beekman 1802, the self-declared "world's largest goat milk bodycare brand," has developed such a loyal following. Beekman 1802 began on a centuries-old farm in upstate New York that's home to 100 goats, whose adventures you can follow in real time on the Beekman 1802 Goat Cam. Its founders left the hustle and bustle of New York City in 2008 to live on the farm and create goat milk soaps — an iconic origin story if ever we heard one.
Flash forward to the present, and the Beekman 1802 Pure Goat Milk Whipped Body Cream is racking up tons of praise on Ulta. Aside from goat milk for softer, smoother, and suppler skin, the luxurious body cream is packed with mango seed butter and coconut oil, which quickly melt into the skin for lasting hydration without a greasy sheen. Other naturally occurring ingredients — like green tea, aloe, grape seed, and vitamin E — are included for overall skin health.

Ulta shoppers say they're shedding happy tears over how healthy, radiant, and hydrated their skin feels after using the $38 whipped body cream. Those who previously described their skin texture as "sandpaper" and "alligator"-like credit the cream with "saving" their skin. Some reviewers also report that their fine lines, stretch marks, and old scars are less visible now.
"Due to a health issue, my skin was dry and flaky on my arms and legs until I started using Beekman 1802 whipped body cream," a reviewer wrote. "It literally saved my skin with its goat milk ingredient. No matter what I tried, none of the previous products I used eliminated my nighttime itching. I am forever grateful to Brent and Josh (the Beekman 1802 founders) for creating this whipped body cream."
Like all Beekman 1802 products, the moisturizing body cream is sulfate-, paraben-, fragrance-, alcohol-, and cruelty-free. It's non-irritating on sensitive skin, and its fast-absorbing formula can be applied all the way from your neck to your toes.
"This is the best body cream I have ever used," another reviewer added. "Between psoriasis and the dry skin that comes with age, I was a flaking relic. This delightful cream has restored moisture to my skin and greatly reduced the flaking from the psoriasis."
With an average rating of 4.9 stars, the Beekman 1802 Pure Goat Milk Whipped Body Cream is a hit among reviewers, whose only complaint is that it doesn't come with a baby goat. Shop the $38 body cream from Ulta today for softer skin.
