Which Moisturizer Is Best for Me?

Do you have difficult, fussy, or sensitive skin? Well, don’t worry, you’re not the only one. It seems that everyone we talk to has a skin problem, or at least knows somebody who does. What started as 1 cream, over the years MooGoo has grown into a range of over 40 products that help people with their skin and scalp issues, all of which are suitable for every skin type.

But of course, with so much selection, it can be confusing to figure out which one is best for you. So, if you’re not quite sure yet, we thought we’d clear things up and outline what each of our moisturizers has to offer so you can discover which one will suit you best for whatever you and your skin are going through.

Skin Milk Udder Cream

Restore | Dry Skin | Oncology Patients | Suitable for all skin types | pH balanced | Dermatologically Tested | Free from Paraffins, Parabens, Phenoxyethanol | Smells Divine

Skin Type: Dry

Key Ingredients: Milk Protein, Rice Bran Oil, Sweet Almond Oil

First of all, we have the infarmous Skin Milk Udder Cream. This moisturizer is full of naturally nourishing and soothing oils like Rice Bran Oil, Sweet Almond and Olive Oil that can actually penetrate the skin to soothe and protect. There's also Aloe Vera to soothe the skin and Milk Protein to increase skin elasticity which helps it remain youthful and supple. 

Skin Milk Udder Cream is the first cream we ever created and it came about when our Founder noticed his Mum using a white paste intended for use on cows to help with her Psoriasis. The white paste was reformulated to suit human skin and there was born our Skin Milk Udder Cream, a lightweight, all natural, chemical-free moisturizer. 

Because of these potent soothing ingredients, many medical professionals noted Skin Milk's effectiveness as a moisturizing cream for oncology patients with dry and damaged skin following radiation treatment and chemotherapy. Today Skin Milk is recommended by several oncologists and nurses nationwide and its success in clinical environments has even led to the registration as a medical device of the MooGoo product.

Skin Milk Udder Cream is suitable for everyone and if you're new to our moisturizers, it's a great place to start.

This cream is the answer to: “I just need a good all-round moisturizer to restore my skin”.

Full Cream Moisturizer

Hydration | Very Dry | Suitable for all skin types | pH Balanced | Dermatologically Tested | free from Paraffins, Parabens, Phenoxyethanol | Smells Divine

Skin Type: Very Dry

Key Ingredients: Olive Squalane, Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil

Our Full Cream Moisturizer was the second moisturizer we made. The difference between this and our Skin Milk Udder Cream is that our Full Cream Moisturizer is targeted at those with really dry skin. Its consistency is slightly thicker, creamier, and richer as well, and also has the same soothing properties as the Skin Milk Udder Cream but with some tweaks for extra hydration. For example, we added Coconut Oil and Olive Squalane to moisturize and protect the skin, both of which are high in the types of fatty acids that healthy skin needs and loves. The combination of Apple Cider Vinegar, as well as the natural Pear and Vanilla fragrances, makes it smell like a delicious dessert. A not-so-great tasting dessert, but a dessert nonetheless!

This cream is the answer to: “My thirsty skin needs some hydration!”

 

 

Soothing MSM Moisturizer

Soothe | Suitable for all skin types | pH Balanced | Dermatologically Tested | Free from Paraffins, parabens, Phenoxyethanol

Skin Types: Sensitive | Irritated | Redness

Key Ingredients: MSM, Sweet Almond Oil, Coconut Oil

Soothing MSM is for when things have gone array. Had a long day at the beach and you look like a cherry? Soothing MSM will calm and soothe your skin, you'll even feel the heat fade from your pores. Chemical burns? Severe reactions? Or simply just extra fussy skin? Our Soothing MSM Moisturizer will help comfort any stress your skin may be under in a quick absorbing lightweight cream. The star ingredients in this little wonder? Olive Squalane, Allantoin and of course MSM.

Now you may be wondering what is MSM? And we can’t wait to tell you. MSM is organic sulphur and stands for Methylsulfonylmethane (don’t worry there won’t be a spelling bee). In the human body, MSM acts as the “glue” that holds together our amino acid chains – aka the building blocks of all tissues. Not only does it combat redness (such as inflammation or sunburn), irritation, and sensitivities, but because of its positive association with collagen, it also wards of wrinkles by decreasing the breakdown of collagen beneath the skin. What a show-off! It is even believed to improve hair and nail growth, fight against cracked or thinning nails, and improve the overall health of cuticles – so we implore you to try it as a hand cream as well.

Those dealing with painful acute acne may also find relief due to its calming and anti-inflammatory properties from the likes of Sweet Almond and Coconut Oil – both high in fatty acids that healthy skin needs and irritated skin loves.

This cream is the answer to: “My skin is super fussy and it’s giving me the silent treatment!”
