It might sound odd for a skincare company to tell its customers not to buy skincare but with an ever increasing number of products out there, more definitely does not mean better - especially when it comes to your skin. Your skin is a living thing, and a lot of what's being marketed only serves to overwhelm or pile on ingredients your skin justdoesn’t need. Fewer products with fewer ingredients, and a lighter touch is always wise.
We’re very fortunate to be located in a particularly beautiful part of the world (google ‘Maleny’). We have wonderful wildlife, valleys and rich pastures which surround Four Cow Farm and that makes us especially mindful of how important it is to make products which don’t harm the environment. So it’s an interesting benefit that, because we make our skincare on our farm, we need to take extra care in making sure there is nothing harmful in our skincare.

Did you know there’s no legal requirement in many countries to put an expiry or best before date on skincare products? Yet, almost all skincare and cosmetics carry a ‘best before’ or ‘expiry’ date - so what do they really mean?
AtFour Cow Farm, we talk a lot about why wedon’tadd fragrances to our products.
