Which MooGoo Moisturiser is right for me?
It's a question we're often asked. When MooGoo first began (back in 2004) it was an easy answer - Skin Milk Udder Cream! It's still a very effective moisturiser and one of our most popular products - but these days, the range has expanded to cater to people's preferences and skin types. We like simplicity here at MooGoo, so here's an easy guide to help you pick the MooGoo Moisturiser that's right for you!
Before we break down the differences in MooGoo moisturisers, let's talk about what they have in common:
- All MooGoo moisturisers are preserved using a gentle, edible preservative ingredient, derived from Hops (hiccup!). It's natural AND it works well - all our moisturisers have been checked for preservative efficacy using the British Pharmacopeia test.
- Even if you don't have sensitive or easily irritated skin, our moisturisers will treat your skin the way it deserves to be treated - like a precious, delicate flower! Goodbye paraffin oils, silicones & harsh chemicals, hello to effective, natural moisturising oils and extracts.
- We show a full list of ingredients on the bottle and on the website. Whether you've got allergies to certain ingredients, or simply like to know what you're putting on your skin, take a look at the ingredients of all our products and let us know if we can answer any questions. We're all big MooGoo fans here at MooGoo HQ, and love to chat about the moisturisers!
Moisturisers for Face & Body
There are 3 general moisturisers to choose from, depending on the level of moisture you're looking for.
Level 1 - Skin Milk Udder Cream. A lovely, light moisturiser that soaks in easily and leaves skin feeling soft and smooth.
Level 2 - Full Cream Moisturiser. If you're looking for a fuller, creamier moisturiser then Full Cream is your go-to. It has a few extra ingredients, including Olive Squalane and Coconut Oil for when your skin is extra thirsty.
Level 3 - Soothing MSM Cream. This moisturiser takes Full Cream as its base with the addition of 10% MSM (Organic Sulphur) and the removal of Milk Protein. This makes it ideal for people who have sensitive and easily irritated skin, as MSM is well known for its ability to calm and soothe skin. We also make a Nut-Oil Free version which uses Evening Primrose Oil in place of Sweet Almond and Coconut Oil, for those sensitive to nuts.
All of these moisturisers are suitable for the whole family - from New Borns right through to grandparents!
Some people, including many of our Herd at MooGoo HQ like to give their face a little extra love, or get help with a specific issue, so over the years we've developed a couple of extra creams to cater for them!
We believe moist, supple skin that is supplied with lots of anti-oxidants is much healthier than skin subjected to acids, temporary plumping agents and chemical line fillers. Squalane is one of the major components in our skin's own oil, and after our early 20's we start producing less of it. So, the Olive Squalane in the cream tops up this supply! It also contains Resveratrol & Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate (Stabilized Vitamin C) - two high-quality anti-oxidants.
In keeping with our ingredient philosophy, there's no bleach in this cream (your skin is far too precious to bleach!), just high-quality ingredients to keep your skin healthy and help prevent the build-up of old oils and bacteria that can be the cause of Acne. For more in-depth information, check out our blog 'What MooGoo Suggest for Acne'.
Some of our Herd asked us for help with sunspots, pigmentation and uneven skin tone. So, we did our research and found 3 of the best natural brightening ingredients we could - and added them to our moisturising base. Daily use over 3 or 4 months has seen some good results for our Herd!
You’ll notice a new ingredient we’ve never used before in this formula; Lactic Acid. Sound familiar? If not then you’ve probably never given Crossfit a go - it’s what causes your muscles to burn during exercise. This is a naturally occurring Hydroxy Acid, which loosens the glue that holds dead skin cells together, helping to remove rough, flaky skin. It also stimulates collagen production to increase skin strength and provide a more youthful appearance. This cream leaves the skin looking bright, glowing and hydrated while smoothing away fine lines that can make us look older than we should (and who wants that?). This is a rich, restorative treatment moisturiser for anyone looking to rejuvenate their skin.
For everyone wanting a great daily moisturiser plus protection from the sun, this non-greasy formula is a great addition to your morning routine. We use clear Zinc and Red Raspberry Seed Oil for natural sun protection and it won’t leave you looking white as a ghost after application. Using Zinc means the cream is a bit thicker than you may be used to, however, we find it spreads really easily too and sit well under makeup.
Gah! Hair removal can be tough on your skin, and really uncomfortable if you're prone to ingrown hairs. We created a moisturiser with a few extra ingredients to help prevent pores being contaminated, and ingrown hairs developing. We recommend switching to this for a few days following a waxing treatment to give your skin some extra TLC!
Yes, a moisturiser that gives your skin a subtle glow afterwards (and no orange in sight either!). Self-tanning ingredients themselves already meet our ingredient philosophy. They are either canola oil, glycerine or sugar based ingredients that combine with the amino acids which are part of the keratin on the outer layer of the skin. It was just a matter of finding the right combination for the perfect glow and adding them to a healthy moisturiser base.
Like many of our moisturisers, our SPF 15 Moisturiser (affectionately known as 'Cover-Up Buttercup') uses Full Cream as the base. We've added Clear Zinc Oxide to give you natural protection from the sun. Zinc Oxide reflects the sun's rays away from you, as it is a physical barrier. Many of our customers use this as a base, under their makeup, as we've worked hard to make sure it doesn't leave your skin oily! If you're looking for higher sun protection, please check out our sun safety page!
For those bits that seem to never have enough to drink - dry, cracked feet, those rough patches on your elbows, and anywhere else in need of uber moisturising! Shea Butter & Raw Coconut Oil are the special ingredients in this mixture. Tip: Apply to clean, dry feet at night followed by your favourite warm socks! Bliss!
Made with Nurses and Health Practitioners in mind, an antibacterial hand product that doesn't contain alcohol nor leave your skin dry and sore! But of course, it has to do the job it was created for as well - and it does, we've got the scientific certificate to prove it on our website!
