With Zofia’s active outdoorsy lifestyle, a good moisturiser is a necessity for keeping her dry, sensitive skin calm, soft and hydrated.
But she found prescription creams and even plant-oil based creams didn’t work for her dry, itchy skin – until she found our Replenishing Cream.
Here’s Zofia’s story…
“I love spending my free time outdoors.
When I was a teen, I trained skiing in winter, and played tennis a lot.
In summer, I would always spend my holidays at the beach and camping.
I then picked up windsurfing… and the rest of my life has been pretty much determined by the love of the watersports.
Because of my passion for outdoors sports, my skin is exposed to the elements a lot, and over time it became quite dry and sensitive.
I was forever looking for a cream or lotion that would be 100% natural, free of chemicals and not petroleum-based. I tried all those petroleum and plant-oil based cream, lotions etc. Nothing would really work for me.
I have to hydrate a few times a day, and sometimes when I forget my cream when I work from the office, it becomes extremely uncomfortable, itchy and dry.
At one point, I was using various creams prescribed by the doctor, which were (supposedly) hydrating, but they were are petroleum-based and were actually making my skin worse.
And then I found Ecology Skincare 🙂
The Replenishing Day & Night Cream (blue) is definitely my favourite…
I love the smell and above all how my skin is instantaneously softer and less itchy, without being overly oily or greasy.
I don’t have to hydrate that much as before… I only use the cream twice a day, in the morning and before going to bed. And my skin is much better now.
I feel much more confident when my face is not covered in flaky dry skin and is not that itchy.
The Ecology Skincare cream really is a game changer for me”

We are beyond happy for Zofia!
It’s always a win when you finally find something that calms the itch of dry and flaky skin, leaving skin looking and feeling softer and more hydrated
Now you might be wondering why Zofia’s Replenishing Cream is helping to keep her skin soft and calm when other 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 our skin’s barrier function becomes disrupted, this is when water can escape from skin and allergens and irritants can get in… leading to dry, itchy skin and irritation.
Cholesterol in particular is helpful for skin that’s dry and easily irritated …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.
…so it helps to calm itching 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 and balancing immune function
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.
Zofia likes our Replenishing Cream + Rejuvenating Cream…
Replenishing Cream with Emu & OliveUltra rich and perfect for dry and sensitive skin
Rejuvenating Cream with Jojoba & KanukaUltra rich and perfect for dry and damaged skin
We’ve had good feedback from other customers (like Zofia) who’ve used our Soothing Baby Cream, Rejuvenating Cream and Replenishing Cream to help hydrate dry skin, soothe sensitive skin and calm itching.
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 Soothing Baby Cream is just as gentle as the Replenishing Cream, but a little lighter in texture. It also contains calendula, which can be helpful for wound healing.
