Business owner Sarah needed a simple, natural, no fuss solution for when her skin would become dry and flaky in the winter.
And after trying all kinds of ‘miracle’ products, Sarah loves that her Replenishing Cream and Konjac Sponge keep her skin hydrated and ‘young looking’ all year round now.
Here’s Sarah’s story…
“I’m a mum of 4 in my late 30’s who lives in far north Queensland.
I have my own small business and love being outdoors. I really value natural, no fuss products for myself and my family.
Every winter in Queensland, as the humidity dropped, the skin on my face and hands was starting to flake…
I work face to face with people in my business and the dry skin was starting to be an issue for me.
I looked like I wasn’t taking care of myself and didn’t think it was very professional. Dry skin also aged me.
I tried all number of serums and miracle oils from other natural brands and then your ad popped up [for Ecology Skincare], so I tried a 3 pack of your little tester tubs and was blown away!
I love how light the Ecology products feel.
I cleanse with a Konjac Sponge morning and night then apply a small amount of your Day and Night Cream and apply sunscreen each morning.
I initially had to apply a small amount a few times a day to see results, but now after a couple of years using the Day and Night Cream, I only need to apply it in the morning and I no longer suffer from dry skin on my face.
They smell beautiful and last a long time… I now have well hydrated and young looking skin.
I have recently travelled interstate to my home town and old friends have commented that I haven’t aged a bit and I’m sure a lot of it is due to your products”

We are beyond happy for Sarah!
It’s always a win when you find something that helps to soften and hydrate dry, flaky skin and leaves you feeling more comfortable in your own skin ( with the added bonus of softening the look of fine lines )
Now you might be wondering why the Ecology Creams are so helpful for Sarah’s dry and flaky skin*…
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.
Sarah likes our Replenishing Cream + Konjac Sponge…
Replenishing Cream with Emu & OliveUltra rich and perfect for dry and sensitive skin
Facial Konjac Sponge PureFor gentle cleansing, just add water perfect for dry and sensitive 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 skin issues like eczema and dermatitis.
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 is anti-inflammatory and well known for helping with skin irritations.
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.
