Jeanette’s careful about what she puts in her body and on her skin, but she struggled to find a moisturiser that would hydrate her dry, flaky itchy skin without repeated applications.
Then she found our Rejuvenating Cream and Jeanette was able to simplify her skincare routine both at home and on-the-go.
Here’s Jeanette’s story…
“I am very particular as to how I look after my body – of which my skin is a major part of.
I avoid allergens (for me it is gluten) and other nasties.
If it has a number in the ingredients – I won’t eat it or put it on my skin.
As my skin is dry (and always has been), many moisturisers just don’t do what is required.
I’ve tried lots of other moisturisers. Although they felt good after application, my skin soon became dry again if I used these on their own without first applying an oil, such as rose hip oil or a serum.
My skin was so dry that it was often flaky… but not any more.
When I use Ecology Rejuvenating Day and Night with Jojoba and Kanuka, my skin stays moist and does not become dry, flaky or itchy.
Ecology Skincare uses beef tallow which my skin loves. My skin is moisturised and not dry at all when I use this product.
I use the Ecology Microfibre Cloth to clean my skin.
Sometimes I use water alone, other times I use a mild cleanser.
I follow this with a rose water toner and Ecology Rejuvenating Day and Night Cream. I exfoliate around once a week too.
Ecology Skincare is great when I travel as this is pretty much what I take to care for my skin when I’m away.
I also keep this in my bag to put on for the drive home after going scuba diving”

We are beyond happy for Jeanette!
It’s always a win when you finally find something that helps to soften and hydrate dry, flaky skin and leaves your skin feeling moist and comfortable all day.
Now you might be wondering what beef tallow is and why Jeanette’s skin loves it more than all the other moisturisers she’s tried…
Our 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.
And the reason why grass-fed tallow is so amazing for skin?
- It really closely mimics fats and oils found naturally in healthy, youthful skin.
- It contains fat soluble vitamins A, D, E & K …all of which are crucial for healthy skin (some of these are also antioxidants)
- It’s balanced in omega 3’s and 6’s …both are important for healthy skin
So this means grass-fed tallow can help replace missing lipids (the natural fats and oils) in skin’s outer layer …keeping moisture IN and allergens and irritants OUT.
…and helping to soften dry skin and leave it looking plump and well hydrated.
Not only that, as we get older, 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 nourish super 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.
Jeanette likes our Rejuvenating Cream + Makeup Removal Cloth…
Rejuvenating Cream with Jojoba & KanukaUltra rich and perfect for dry and damaged skin
Microfibre Makeup Removal ClothsPlush and ultra soft, reusable Just add water for gentle cleansing and makeup removal
The Replenishing Cream is ultra rich. It has only a handful of ingredients (no essential oils) and is perfect for anyone with dry and sensitive skin or dry skin conditions and skin issues.
The Rejuvenating Cream is also ultra rich and contains kanuka oil (which is in the same family as manuka oil and tea tree). Kanuka oil well known for helping reduce redness and easily irritated skin.
The Daily Moisturiser with Ylang Ylang is lighter in texture than our other Ecology Creams… it contains camellia, kakadu plum and frankincense to protect against signs of ageing… and it has a delightful aroma.
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.
First time customers can now try a trial of our 10mL mini moisturisers from only $27 (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 sensitised skin
(the 10mL mini’s are a great size! Each one will last a couple of weeks, long enough to see the softening effect for yourself)

*It’s also worth noting here, that in cases of a specific type of dermatitis – seborrheic dermatitis – we would not see this kind of resolution…
When skin is red and flaky down the sides of the nose, eyebrows or scalp, it can sometimes be due to a skin condition called seborrheic dermatitis.
There’s a particular microbe that lives on our skin that is overgrown with seborrheic dermatitis. That microbe feeds on our natural skin oils (which is why seborrheic dermatitis often appears in the oiler parts of our face and scalp).
What this means is that any moisturiser that is oil based will feed those microbes and possibly make seborrheic dermatitis worse. Which is why we wouldn’t recommend an Ecology moisturiser in cases of seborrheic dermatitis.
