Retiree Louise was struggling with rosacea and dry, itchy skin until she found our Soothing Baby Cream. Now she has calm, clear skin and feels confident enough to leave the house with just sunscreen.
Here’s Louise’s story…
“I’m 65 and retired from my science based work. I’m passionate about doing what we can to care for Earth and each other.
I’ve developed rosacea and my skin is really dry.
I was embarrassed of my flakiness… it was like I had dandruff on my face.
I had prescription cream from the doctor. I still use this for occasional flare ups of the rosacea.
And I had cleanser and moisturiser from the beautician.
The treatment recommended by my GP and beautician just wasn’t working.
I bought the trial pack recommended by Ecology and found the Soothing Baby Cream was the most successful.
Twice a day I cleanse with the Konjac Sponge and apply the Baby Cream straight after while my skin is still damp.
I wear sunscreen and in this cold windy weather I’ve used a sample pot for reapplying [Ecology] cream to my lips during the day.
I don’t have face dandruff any more, hardly any breakouts and my skin isn’t tight and itchy any more.
I feel confident to go out and about with just my sunscreen. My skin feels calm. I love it!”

We are beyond happy for Louise!
It’s always a win when you find something that makes a noticeable difference to itchy, flaky skin …as well as fitting in with your ethos on what kinds of products you prefer to use.
Now you might be wondering why Louise’s Soothing Baby Cream works so well for her when beautician recommended products didn’t…?
Well, our skin cells are like bricks… and in between our skin cells, sits a glue or mortar made up of cholesterol, fatty acids and ceramides.
…it works like a living wall that keeps allergens, microbes and irritants out and moisture in.
When this living wall becomes damaged, moisture escapes leading to dry skin. And it can also affect the sensitive nerve endings in our skin – causing itching.
…and when we scratch the itch, it can cause further damage, redness and easily irritated skin
Cholesterol in particular is helpful for skin that’s dry and itchy …but it’s found in so few products.
Cholesterol is in our Ecology Creams, because it’s found naturally in our hero ingredient… 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 contains the same kinds of fats and oils we have naturally in skin. So it soaks in nicely and helps support skin’s barrier function, keeping allergens and irritants out and moisture in.
…and it helps to calm itchy, flaky skin and leave skin looking plump and well hydrated.
Grass-fed tallow also:
- Contains fat soluble vitamins A, D, E & K …all of which are crucial for healthy skin (some of these are also antioxidants)
- Is balanced in omega 3’s and 6’s …both are important for healthy skin
Not only that, as we get older, our skin produces less of those lipids (the fats and oils) that keep it soft, supple and looking hydrated.
…so grass-fed tallow is putting back what time takes away.
Louise likes our Konjac Sponge and Soothing Baby Cream…

We’ve had good feedback from other customers (like Louise) who’ve used our Soothing Baby Cream and the other two moisturisers in our Sensitive Skin Trial Pack (our Replenishing Cream and our Daily Moisturiser with Hemp and Vanilla) to help ease itchy, flaky skin.
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.
The Soothing Baby Cream is just as gentle as the Replenishing Cream, but a little lighter in texture.
And the Daily Moisturiser with Hemp and Vanilla is lighter in texture than the other two creams. It has a mild vanilla aroma and the hemp seed oil helps to balance skin oils.
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 itchy, flaky skin
(the 10mL mini’s are a great size! Each one will last a couple of weeks, long enough to see the softening and smoothing effect for yourself)
