Goat Maddness owner Chris Madden said he learned the skin care benefits of goat milk from his mother-in-law, Linda Faith, who 13 years ago began making products such as lotion and hand soaps from her goats’ leftover milk.

“She started giving them to her friends as gifts just because we were trying to use the milk and we didn’t want it to go to waste,” Madden said.

After his mother-in-law’s death and more than five years of selling the products in various fairs, Madden said his family was inspired to open a brick-and-mortar shop as a way to continue the legacy of what Faith started years ago. Goat Maddness opened on Market Street in Tomball in August 2019, offering products such as skin care items handmade from goat milk, beard oils and Goat Maddness apparel.

“We had all these great products, and the benefits of goat milk are just phenomenal, and it was one of those things that we didn’t want to fade away,” Madden said.

Madden said the business also offers a do-it-yourself bar where customers can create their own concoctions of goat milk lotions customized with a selection of over 70 scents.

“It’s not just a store that you shop at; it’s a store that you come in and ... you are the creator of some of the products,” he said.

According to Madden, the business also promotes skin care for men by offering facial scrubs, beard washes and beard oils.

“I was sick and tired of going to the store and not being able to get like great products when my mother-in-law [was] always making them, so I was like, ‘Let’s just bring in the male side of it,’” Madden said. “We [men] have to pamper ourselves too, you know?”
