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. To help make that happen, we’re all in the midst of making our resolutions for the year, and if we want a better world, we know that should start in our own homes. 
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 :)

Kids & Eczema

Kids & Eczema

Eczema can be an exhausting cycle for parents and child (we've been there!) and unfortunately the one thing which is needed most is also probably the hardest to find in situations like this - patience! Taking the natural route may not have the dramatic short-term results that steroid creams do but the long-term advantages definitely outweigh the wait.

Natural Ingredients to Watch Out For

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).

cosmetic grade oils and why you should avoid them

Why We Avoid 'Cosmetic Grade' Oils

Did you know most oils used in commercial skincare manufacturing are 'cosmetic grade' which is a degraded, lower quality of oil, even if organic!
