Are You Using the Right Moisturiser for Your Skin?

Are You Using the Right Moisturiser for Your Skin?

Moisturisers play a key role in keeping moisture in the skin and keeping it hydrated. The right moisturiser will soothe and protect the skin, enhancing our skin’s natural ability to renew and protect itself.
Why Simple Skincare is Better For Your Skin

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).

The Importance of Cold-Pressed Oils in Skincare

Have you noticed the variety of plant and vegetable oils used in skincare products these days? From olive to rosehip, coconut, soybean, and even palm, there seems to be an endless range of oils available. However, it's crucial to consider the quality of the oils being used in these products.

Balancing the Skin Microbiome: The Benefits of Natural Skincare

Did you know that your skin is a living thing in more ways than one? The skin microbiome, a diverse community of microorganisms that reside on the skin's surface, plays a crucial role in maintaining skin health.

6 Skincare Products You DON'T Need

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 just doesn’t need. Fewer products with fewer ingredients, and a lighter touch is always wise.
Protecting the Environment: Our Commitment to Eco-Friendly Skincare

Protecting the Environment: Our Commitment to Eco-Friendly Skincare

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.
Navigating the Challenges of Eczema in Kids

Navigating the Challenges of Eczema in Kids

Eczema is a common skin condition that affects children, and there are two types that are most commonly seen - atopic eczema and irritant eczema. Atopic eczema is more common in urban areas, likely because of the lack of exposure to microbes in the environment. The skin with atopic eczema is also less able to retain moisture, making it more reactive to the environment and susceptible to the itch-scratch cycle. It's crucial to keep the affected skin moisturized with products that don't contain fragrances, fillers, colors, or preservatives, as they can trigger the itch-scratch cycle.
Facial Skin: Chose the Best Natural Moisturiser for You

Facial Skin: Chose the Best Natural Moisturiser for You

Perhaps unusually for a skincare brand, we don’t market our moisturisers as being for a particular part of your body. We don’t position our lotions as face or neck or hand moisturisers. Why not? Because we believe that understanding your skin’s condition and matching it with the right natural ingredients is key - not all facial skin is the same, so what makes a facial moisturiser work for one person might make it worse for another. 
The best oils for sensitive skin

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! But what about the quality of the oils used? Beyond the marketed beneficial properties of the oils used, one question that should be asked is how was that oil processed?
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 skincare ingredients to watch out for

Is your skincare affecting your skin health?

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).

The best way to use a skincare oil

It’s winter and with all this cold weather, many of us are using skincare oils on the skin for extra protection against the harsh weather. Oils are a wonderful addition to pretty much any skincare routine - and especially on skin that is dry, sensitive or affected by conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. But do you know the best way of using them?
