Baby Leonardo has been set out with the important job of testing a few products.
# Four Cow Farm has been at the top of our testing list this month.
Baby Leonardo thought that the shower gel was great as there were no unfriendly chemicals. Mums, the only thing to note is that this product does not contain the ‘no tears’ chemicals so it does sting if you get it in babies’ eyes. It depends on what you think is more important – I believe in ‘no chemicals’ so I always have to be a bit more careful when washing his face.
The other product from the range we love is the Calendula cream. Leonardo developed very dry patches on his legs, and this cream has been a great remedy. It has a waxy feel but melts like butter over his warm legs.
Leonardo gives most of the range a thumbs up. We haven’t properly tried the Nappy Rash cream as Leonardo hasn’t been making many poos so his bum has been clear of nappy rashes so we aren’t yet sure of its effectiveness. Baby Leonardo will keep you all posted.
Four Cow Farm, from Queensland, Australia, is proud of its environmental consciousness. All the water used on the farm including that for both human and animal consumption, as well as irrigation, comes from collected rainwater. A significant part of their electricity supply is generated on-site by solar panels and, by agreement with our power supplier, all of the electricity used on the farm is generated from green renewable energy sources
The Four Cow Farm range was started by a Midwife, Mum & Grandmother (with hundreds of deliveries to her credit) who wanted to make creams and balms that were as good and natural as possible for her two little grandchildren (one of whom had eczema). Using time-tested recipes and traditional ingredients, Nanna’s labour of love began as a gift to her two little ones.
Nanna’s range of simple, honest, hand-worked and time-tested recipes are made with only the very best all-natural ingredients, sourced from suppliers Nanna knows and trusts herself. They are made from Nanna’s own hand-crafted recipes, without the complex mix of unnecessary fragrances and chemicals so common today, and with absolutely no artificial additives or chemical hazards whatsoever.
Today, the whole family is involved in helping to make and share Nanna’s products with mums, dads and bubs all over the world. Whether you’d like to learn more about the ingredients that go into skincare, the care of baby skin or skin prone to eczema, the natural movement as a whole or if you’re just curious about our farm, you’ll find lots of articles on their blog.
Their entire range is made from premium food-grade ingredients, including their preservatives and emulsifiers! Four Cow Farm products never contain any:
