I have a lot of baby lotions and oils lying around my bathroom.
I’m always hesitant to use them because I am almost positive some poisonous chemical will be hidden in there.
And my baby is far too precious to have her skin damaged.
That is why I was really excited to try Four Cow Farm’s range of healthy skin care products for babies.
The Four Cow Farm Story
All natural, straight from Nanna’s kitchen stove where she prepares all her home remedies. Nanna originally began preparing the natural skin care products to help cure her grandaughter’s eczema. Nana still makes the products from her farm- which runs on 100% green energy– in Maleny in the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
The small family business has grown through word of mouth, starting with friends and families who tried the all-natural washes, creams and balms. They can be now found in retailers on the Sunshine Coast and the Four Cow Farm online store.
The story behind the products made it all the more exciting to try it. I love using Australian products and those that come from a good family story.
Healthy Skin Care Products for our Babies
Of course, there always lies within me an element of scepticism when it comes to natural products as well. There is that niggling doubt within me that if it is not full of man-made chemicals then it can’t work.
Where that comes from, I don’t know. Years of marketing abuse by major corporations most likely.
How can it be bad if it comes from nature?
I was pleasantly surprised at how good the products work. I have been using the nappy balm for any nappy rash that appears on Savannah’s bum. It’s soft and gentle and oozes with the richness of nature. It doesn’t take long after using the cream for the rash to disappear.
Savannah has the unsightly cradle cap and I have been using the Four Cow Farm baby oil on it. Each morning after using it the cradle cap has disappeared. Sometimes a very noticeable patch is there and I realized it’s a part of her head that I missed with the baby oil the previous evening.
The baby wash is free from foaming agents, so it is low foaming, but performs the job and gives Savannah a pure and gentle wash.
For those babies and children, gosh even adults, with eczema, hives, bites, dermatitis or other skin ailments, the Calendula remedy is a soothing and rich emollient balm. Its a Four Cow Farm favourite and I couldn’t think of a better place to start curing skin conditions. For more information on toxins, eczema, skin care etc. check out the Four Cow Farm Blog.
I was warned that the smell of the products would not be great as there are no perfumes added to the products. I actually found the smell quite enticing as it is so pure and clean.
Craig asked me why he thought Savannah smelt like hay after a put the oil on her head. Fresh and natural, just the way it should be.
I have to say I loved all the products that I tried; the baby wash, baby oil, calendula remedy, nappy cream, nappy balm, and baby lotion.
They really felt so light, yet rich in goodness. It must have something to do with the ingredients, because at times I did even feel like eating them!
