Meet Deirdre – “As I became older and menopausal, my foundation was starting to look cakey… now my skin is soft and hydrated”

The perfect compliment to her low-tox lifestyle, Deirdre’s Rejuvenating Cream is helping to soften and hydrate her skin, so her makeup now glides on without looking ‘cakey’ or having fine lines ‘stand out’ …and having her photo taken is now no problem at all.

This is Deirdre’s story…

“As I became older and menopausal I noticed my traditional foundation was starting to look cakey and exacerbated my wrinkles. This made me feel a little sad – and not so keen to be photographed.

It was only in my late 30’s that I began to really understand how chemical laden most skin care and cosmetic ingredients were – and still are!
It was also then that I began my sugar and toxin free way of eating – then to paleo, to keto (and now I’m practically carnivore)

The changes in my diet have had a profoundly positive impact on my life and loved ones.
Presently, at 49, I feel better than when I was in my 20s!

After trying straight up coconut oil, which just made my skin waaay too glossy looking…
…I now use my Rejuvenating Cream twice a day, everyday after showering and before applying makeup and / or a zinc sunscreen. I also take it on long haul flights.

My Rejuvenating Cream keeps my skin soft and hydrated. I also love to use it as a base under my makeup… this makes the application blend beautifully.

It’s a life saver, especially in winter, as my skin becomes very dry then. It feels and smells wonderful.

And yes, whilst I still see “wrinkles” in the mirror… the overall effect from using the cream (which I LOVE), is the restored dewiness and more even complexion… and this lasts throughout the day.

Just before bed I also rub a generous dab on and around my lips and laughter lines so as to let it soak in whilst I sleep… plus I find the scent is very calming.

As for having my pic taken – absolutely no problem at all!… with or without makeup!
And this confidence also stems from knowing I’m using the best skin care, because I know its ingredients are effective, nurturing and most importantly, safe!

I like to think my Ecology moisturiser is the perfect compliment and / or extension of my ongoing, evolving health journey and lifestyle. Thank you for creating such a brilliant product! 🙂 x”

We are beyond happy for Deirdre!

It’s such a massive win when you find something that softens and hydrates skin… and makes for a good ‘primer’ under makeup without leaving makeup looking ‘cakey’

Now you might be wondering why Deirdre’s Rejuvenating Cream is so helpful for ‘menopausal’ skin…?

It’s because the Ecology Creams are handmade with a little known ingredient called grass-fed tallow.

Grass-fed tallow is a gently rendered fat (like emu oil), but it comes from healthy, grass-fed cows

(so this isn’t for our vegan friends!)

Grass-fed tallow might be ‘little known’ now… but everyone from the Aboriginal Australians to our great grandmothers used to use traditional animal fats like tallow, for everything from burns and chafing to blisters and wound healing.

Grass-fed tallow is the hero ingredient in our Ecology Creams…

…and the reason why grass-fed tallow is so amazing for skin?

  1. It really closely mimics fats and oils found naturally in healthy, youthful skin.
  2. It contains fat soluble vitamins A, D, E & K …all of which are crucial for healthy skin (some of these are also antioxidants)
  3. It’s balanced in omega 3’s and 6’s …both are important for healthy skin and balancing immune function

So this means grass-fed tallow can help replace missing oils in skin’s outer layer …keeping moisture IN and allergens and irritants OUT.

…and helping to smooth the look of fine lines and leave skin looking plump and well hydrated.

Not only that, as we get older and go through menopause, our skin produces less of those lipids (the fats and oils) that keep it soft, supple and youthful looking.
…so grass-fed tallow is putting back what time takes away.

So why is it the big brand moisturisers fail to really hydrate dry skin?

It’s because big brand moisturisers are typically 50-80% water (or aqua)

Take a look and you’ll see water as a first ingredient in many of these products.
But this means, there’s only 20-50% left for the skin nourishing ingredients.

Compare this to the Ecology Moisturisers..
they’re are 100% natural fats and oils (no water), so they’re highly concentrated to better soften skin and smooth out the look of fine lines.

Like Deirdre, I have a drive to use natural products on my skin.

But my super sensitive skin and skin issues meant I couldn’t just use ANY natural product because my skin would react…
…which is what led me to developing the Ecology Creams in the first place.
…and once I found something that worked well for me and I wanted to share it with others

And because I know how important it can be to try a ‘trial size’ of something before getting a larger size, we’ve put together Trial Packs of our Ecology Creams.

So if you haven’t tried our Ecology Creams yet, you can now try a 2-pack or 3-pack of our 10mL mini moisturisers from only $18 (so only $9 per moisturiser) …and get free shipping when you use the code: TRIAL at checkout

and see for yourself the difference an Ecology Moisturiser can make for dry skin

(this is a great size! It’ll last a couple of weeks, long enough to see the softening effect for yourself)

Crystal,
Ecology Skincare

    I recently purchased the 3 little trial pots and I can honestly say that I love all 3 of them ! The Replenishing cream for dry skin especially is beautiful and you only need such a small amount. I will definitely be purchasing a larger size!
