As you probably know, Jasper’s had eczema and dermatitis since he was really tiny. It seems like we’ve tried EVERYTHING under the sun to make it better and I finally found our saviour in Aveeno cream, it cleared his skin up amazingly, that along with changing our laundry detergent to Surcare and Ecover.
Now though, and I’m not sure if this is because of the change in weather, he’s started to get the odd few patches back, despite sticking firmly to our new regime. It’s nowhere near as bad as it was before but he does have small dry patches on his upper back, elbow creases and the backs of his knees.
I won’t stop using Aveeno, Jaspers nursery has a bottle and so does my mum so I can make sure he’s always getting a least one application a day, but I thought it would be a good idea to keep trying new products and see if his skin gets on with anything else.
I’d like to introduce you to MooGoo; an Australian range of natural and gentle skincare products. What I LOVE about them, apart from their wonderful products of course, is their story.
“MooGoo came about when the head of our herd thought it was unusual that his mother was using a product made for cows for her skin condition. The “Udder Cream” being used in dairy farms was designed to help keep the skin on cow’s udders in prime condition for milking. Cow’s udders need to be soft and supple, not dry or cracked. However the original Udder Cream his mother used was very thick to apply. So he set about adapting this cream for humans by making it lighter and non-greasy.”
They now have a wide range of products for all skin issues and we’ve been able to try out the Mini Moo Bubbly Wash, Nappy Balm and Soothing MSM Cream.
Mini Moo Bubbly Wash uses small amounts of 6 different natural glucose and coconut cleansers to achieve a milder approach to cleansing, avoiding Sodium Laureth Sulphate which can dry and irritate sensitive skin while still filling bath time with bubbles – a bambinos favourite! Jasper and Rhys loved the bubbles and their skin was smooth and soft after bath time. There wasn’t really a scent which sometime I prefer as I like to be able to smell their freshness afterwards but this wasn’t a big factor for me.
Nappy Balm is created from edible ingredients which I know is music to so many of you mum’s ears! Jasper ALWAYS manages to grab the tub of Sudocrem before I have a chance to close the lid so this is perfect – eat away Jasper (jokes, I wouldn’t let him eat it of course).
Soothing MSM Cream is an all over moisturiser made from sweet almond oil and raw coconut oil, perfect for calming irritable skin. I’ve been using this on Jasper morning and noon and love how easily is sinks in and how wonderful Jasper smells afterwards!
We have absolutely loved using these products and they’re a brand that I just can’t wait to try more of. They sell all sort of products with a range of wonderful benefit including edible lip balm, anti-ageing sf cream, cleansing bars and so much more!
So if you suffer from sensitive skin, eczema, dermatitis, acne, dandruff or simply want to switch to something natural and simple, definitely give MooGoo a try!
