Working longer hours in health care during COVID-19, Melissa’s Daily Moisturiser is helping to balance her combination skin and oily breakouts AND keep her hands soft and supple in the face of constant hand sanitising.
This is Melissa’s story…
“I have a mixture of dry and oily skin on my face.
Before trying the Ecology Skincare moisturisers, I was starting to change my products at home to low tox (personal use as well as household cleaners).
The fewer the ingredients the better for me.
I came across Ecology and thought the ingredients ticked all the boxes for me.
I was always self-conscious about the oily pimples that would break out every so often on my face… and it would get me down.
I tried cleansing with a face washer and a foaming facewash followed by a light moisturiser for sensitive skin.
Now, I use a Konjac Sponge to cleanse daily, followed by my Ecology Moisturiser – it works so well for me.
I rarely use make up, but I put on some tinted natural zinc sunscreen each day.
I also do a light moisturise on my legs and arms each morning.
At night I clean this off with my Konjac Sponge and apply a little more Ecology Moisturiser.
I carry a small travel size Ecology Moisturiser with me during the day to apply to my hands and as a lip balm as needed.
I work in healthcare and use hand sanitiser multiple times per day.
Right in the middle of COVID-19, I was much busier at work and was asked to work extra hours.
I didn’t want my hands to go the way of my colleagues with all that extra hand washing and hand sanitising…
…so I was using my Ecology Moisturiser 3 times a day on my hands and despite using hand sanitiser up to 40 times a day, my hands remained soft and smooth!
My skin is now more stable. My face isn’t dry at all and the oily breakouts are a thing of the past!”

We are beyond happy for Melissa!
It’s such a massive win when you finally find something that helps balance combination skin and also helps to protect ‘well-washed’ and sanitised hands.
(as well as fitting in your your ethos on using natural products)
Honestly, when it comes to breakouts… everyone’s different and it can really depend on what’s driving the breakouts (especially as there’s a big internal component to breakouts as well)
We find it’s people with ‘hormonal’ breakouts that tend to get better results with the Ecology Creams…
Now you might be wondering why the Ecology Creams have been so helpful for Melissa’s face AND hands…?
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.
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 balance oil production and replace missing components in skin’s outer layer …keeping moisture IN and allergens and irritants OUT.
…which means grass-fed tallow can also help calm redness, replenish dry skin and leave it looking plump and well hydrated.
Like Melissa, I have a drive to use natural products on my skin.
My super sensitive skin and skin issues are what led me to developing the Ecology Creams in the first place.
…I’d finally 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.
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 sensitive and problem skin
(this is a great size! It’ll last a couple of weeks, long enough to see the calming effect for yourself)
