As a cancer survivor natural products are important to Natasha. As is approaching her skin with patience, self love and the right skincare.
Add in a dry skin condition that needs extra hydration and this is where the Ecology Creams shine and leave Natasha feeling empowered, glowy and confident in her own skin.
Here’s Natasha’s story…
“I’m 48, single mother of three beautiful girls. A breast cancer survivor in 2020, I also get psoriasis so it’s really important to me to use natural products on my skin.
Having psoriasis means I need extra hydration and be careful not to irritate it further, so I researched natural products. Most store bought products with chemical ingredients don’t work.
Ecology Skincare spoke to my needs as well as being in convenient tins, that I can take anywhere and can be recycled.
My skin stays hydrated and irritant free and my favourite currently is Revitalising Day and Night Cream for all skin types – surprised that I don’t need the sensitive one.
I feel empowered, glowy and think my wrinkles are less obvious, it is so convenient in tin form it can go in my purse and be with me whenever I need it.
I used to be embarrassed about my skin but with patience, self love and the right skincare I now feel confident in my own skin.”

We are beyond happy for Natasha!
It’s always a win when you find something that fits in with what you need to hydrate skin affected by a dry skin condition – and as a bonus helps soften and smooth skin so you can feel confident no matter what!
Now you might be wondering why Natasha’s Revitalising Cream has been so helpful for her…?
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 good for skin?
- It contains the same kinds of fats and oils found naturally in healthy 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 healthy looking – so grass-fed tallow helps to replace those missing fats and oils.
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 fine lines.
Natasha is loving our Revitalising Cream…
Revitalising Cream with Macadamia & ManukaRich for all skin types and skin prone to breakouts. Manuka and kanuka oils can be helpful for reducing the look of redness and breakouts - leaving skin looking healthy and revitalised.
We’ve had good feedback from other customers (like Natasha) who’ve used the moisturisers in our Redness Prone Skin Pack – the Revitalising Cream, Replenishing Cream and Soothing Baby Cream to help Redness Prone Skin.
The Revitalising Cream is rich and has a simple formulation… it contains only a handful of ingredients, including manuka and kanuka oils which are known to be helpful for breakouts, redness and irritation.
The Soothing Baby Cream is similar in feel and richness to the Revitalising Cream and it is gentle for sensitive skin. Calendula can also be helpful for soothing the look of red and easily irritated 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 and skin issues.
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 dry skin conditions.
(the 10mL mini’s are a great size! Each one will last a couple of weeks, long enough to see the skin hydrating benefit for yourself)
