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.

Essential oils are found in so many natural skincare products these days yet, despite their widespread use, they are often used in ways which are far from safe :(
Avoid These Eczema Triggers

Avoid These Eczema Triggers

It's well known that atopic eczema is often triggered by allergens in the environment (dust mites, certain fibres, pollen, mold) and in the diet (dairy, shellfish, eggs, nuts).

Our essential winter skincare tips!

Winter’s suddenly arrived and made its presence felt! There’s a chill in the air and this change in weather can have a big impact on your skin. Colder air along with the wind and lower humidity levels can carry away precious moisture just when your skin needs it most.
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?
Avoid these 4 ingredients in a facial wash

Avoid these 4 ingredients in a facial wash

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).
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). 
One simple step to protect over-sanitised hands

One simple step to protect over-sanitised hands

Sanitising our hands has become so frequent nowadays that it is becoming harder and harder to avoid the damage it's doing to our skin. Most hand sanitisers are at least 60% alcohol and often more, they can be harsh on normal skin, and much more so on skin that’s dry and sensitive or affected by eczema or dermatitis. 

Avoid form in washes

The one thing you need to avoid in a Wash

What’s the one thing you really want to avoid in a wash? We’ve become so used to this that we don’t give it a second thought when it shows up in popular brands of wash we use. But, the one thing you really shouldn’t see in a wash that you use on your skin is... foam. Yes, might sound strange or almost alarmist but there’s good reason to avoid washes that foam - here’s why...
Pressing calendula infused oil at Four Cow Farm skincare

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?
Camellia oil - the wonder oil you need in your regimen

Camellia oil - the wonder oil you need in your regimen

Camellia is an amazing plant which is one of the longest-lived and hardiest known. In Japan and China, the oldest living camellias are still flowering despite being over 500 years old, and it’s not uncommon to find camellias over a hundred years old (the oldest in Australia was planted in 1831!). With amazing regenerative qualities, it isn’t surprising that in many parts of Asia its seeds are prized and have been used by the legendary geishas of Japan for centuries.
