The skin on your face is the thinnest skin on your body. In fact, the thinnest skin you have, which is around your eyes, is 80 times thinner than the thickest on your body (can you guess where that is? hint: you stand on it).
At Four Cow Farm, we think a lot about every ingredient that goes into the products we craft, from the water we use (all collected at the farm and filtered and processed right here) to the oils we use (all extra virgin cold-pressed and of the highest food grade quality) to the preservatives we use (always food grade, always in the lowest possible amounts).
You’ll find essential oils in lots of natural products. Essential oils seem to be everywhere and in everything, from what we clean with to what we eat and apply to our skin. People even purchase essential oils ‘neat’, mixing various different ones to inhale, applying directly to skin and even ingest - for themselves and their little ones. We love the fragrance of them and even burn them in our homes, and apply them to our sheets and clothes. They’re natural, so they must be good for you! Or are they?
Every new parent stresses about having everything ready for their new arrival - we know the feeling all to well - the list of ‘required’ baby items seems endless! Where being over prepared is certainly better than being under prepared, when it comes to baby skin, less is more is most definitely true. Fewer skincare products with fewer ingredients, and a lighter touch is always best.
