7 Tips For Finding The Best Natural Moisturiser

7 Tips For Finding The Best Natural Moisturiser

Living with sensitive skin means finding a natural moisturiser isn't always easy! We understand that our MooGoo range has so many options, that you might not know which one to choose from straight away. We make formulas for all kinds of skin issues like dryness, irritation, itchiness, flakiness, or sensitivity. Here are our 7 top tips to support you in finding a natural moisturiser that will work best for your skin!

Know Your Skin Type:

Understanding your skin type is essential for selecting the right moisturiser. Normal skin generally requires lighter hydration, while dry skin craves more intense moisture.

If your skin is easily irritated, itchy, or flaky, choose products made for sensitive skin to help soothe and nourish it. Not sure what your skin type is? Take our skincare quiz to learn about it!


Read the Ingredients Label:

Ingredients matter in your skincare. Look for natural, gentle, and nourishing ingredients that provide hydration without causing irritation. We formulate our moisturisers with ingredients known for their soothing and moisturising properties. This includes Aloe Vera, Jojoba Oil, Olive Squalane, Chamomile Extract, Allantoin, and Calendula!


Avoid Harsh Chemicals:

Unfortunately, there are a lot of skincare products that contain harsh ingredients. These can aggravate sensitive skin and exacerbate existing skin conditions like Eczema and Psoriasis. Opt for moisturisers that are free from common irritants such as parabens, sulfates, phenoxyethanol, and petroleum jellies.


Consider Specific Concerns:

Different skin concerns require different solutions. If you're dealing with Eczema or Psoriasis, look for moisturisers specifically formulated to address these conditions. Both our original Eczema & Psoriasis Cream and new Marshmallow Eczema & Psoriasis Cream contain soothing ingredients like Centella Asiatica to help relieve itching and inflammation.

Our Full Cream Moisturiser is perfect for very dry, flaky, and itchy skin. This natural moisturiser contains Sweet Almond, Coconut, and Olive Oil to deeply hydrate and nourish skin. Our Skin Milk Udder Cream is an all-around-restoring formula to maintain the skin's health and integrity. It also contains our top picks for hydration like the Full Cream, however in a regular moisturiser consistency.

For those with sensitive skin but a preference for a lighter texture, our Fast Hydrating Lotion is the top pick. Despite being a lotion, we haven't skimped on ingredients. It has the usual skin-loving ingredients, along with Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) which strengthens the skin barrier. It can be beneficial for those looking for support with their skin during Oncology & Cancer treatment as well.

Our Soothing MSM Moisturiser with 10% MSM and Aloe Vera helps calm red, irritated skin. MSM, also known as Organic Sulphur, is a natural compound that is known for soothing skin. This is our first natural moisturiser recommendation for anyone dealing with skin rashes, hot and stinging skin, and inflammation. It pairs well with our original Eczema & Psoriasis Cream and new Marshmallow Eczema & Psoriasis Cream as a way to soothe these skin conditions as well.

The Double Cream with Ceramides is a thick moisturiser that offers intense hydration to repair damaged skin barriers. Ceramides are essential lipids found in healthy skin. Applying the Double Cream with Ceramides to severely damaged skin can help provide essential repair and relief! It also creates a beautiful protective barrier to prevent skin irritation in harsh weather conditions, like snow.

We also make other natural moisturisers with additional properties to add to your sensitive skin routine. We make our Magnesium Moisturiser on our usual base of nourishing Sweet Almond Oil, along with 20% Magnesium Chloride!  This aids in relaxation and also helps soothe certain skin concerns!

For those with skin conditions, regular fake tanning products can cause further irritation. So that's why we formulated our Gradual Tanning Cream! We use two natural tanning agents, DHA and Erythrulose, mixed with Sweet Almond, Olive Squalane, and Coconut Oil. We included Natural Vitamin E and purified EGCG Green Tea Leaf Extract, a powerful antioxidant that helps improve the skin barrier.

We have a Baby Soothing Moisturiser that does not contain nut oil. We also have a Baby Fast Absorbing Lotion with Ceramides. These products help keep your baby's skin soft and smooth.

Multi Taskers Win Extra Points

Choose products that do more than one thing to simplify your skincare routine. You can use our moisturisers on the whole family! You can also use them on both face and body.

Looking for a specific face product? Our natural face creams contain Vitamin C, Peptides, and Bakuchiol to address sun damage and ageing.


Trial and Error:

Finding the perfect moisturiser may require some trial and error. Do not get discouraged if you do not find success with the first product you try.

Not every cream will work for everyone, which is why we have a variety of options. Try different formulations and textures until you find one that suits your skin's needs. Here at MooGoo, we offer sample sizes of many products, allowing you to test them out before committing to a full-sized bottle.


Consult a Dermatologist and Nutritionist:

So you've tried the above steps and your skin issue hasn't improved? This is when it's time to see a professional! Some skin conditions require short-term medications while removing certain food groups can relieve others. A nutritionist can help you develop a meal plan suited to supporting internal symptoms for the skin while a dermatologist can assess your skin and provide a tailored plan if need be. 

In conclusion, we're here to support you in finding the right natural moisturiser for your skin! Take our Skincare Quiz or contact our customer service team at info@moogoo.com.au or (07) 5522 1979 for any questions.
