Why Simple Skincare is Better For Your Skin

At Four Cow Farm, we believe in keeping skincare simple and choosing ingredients wisely. We carefully select every ingredient that goes into our products, 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).

Did you know that the skin on your face is the thinnest on your body? In fact, the skin around your eyes is 80 times thinner than the thickest skin on your body (which happens to be the soles of your feet).

The best oils for sensitive skin

The range of plant and vegetable oils available in skincare these days seems endless. Olive, rosehip, coconut, soybean, palm etc; there seem to be as many oils as there are products!

4 Tips to Make Your Skincare Earth-Friendly

It’s 2021! There’s a sigh of relief all round that 2020 is over and all of us at the farm are full of hope that 2021 will bring better things.

So besides the usual resolutions of losing weight, being kinder and spending more time with our families (all very important!), we’re hoping that more people will try some of our earth-friendly skincare resolutions. Every step counts :)
