We made this moisturiser after getting a lot of requests from our customers and stockists to add a light(er)weight formula to our moisturiser range. Our classic Skin Milk Udder Cream has generally been our suggestion for those looking for an all-round restorative cream, but it seems that there are many people that prefer something even lighter, particularly when dealing with thin, very sensitive or damaged skin. Heavier creams are great to deeply nourish, nurture and protect dry skin, but they can also take a little longer to apply, especially all over the body on a regular basis. Since we make our products for our customers, we were happy to take on the task of creating a lighter formula, and we’re pleased to introduce to you the time-saving lotion we wish we’d made years ago.
But don’t be fooled into thinking that lighter means less because this lightweight is no lightweight! Made with our favourite, moisturising oils that skin slurps up, and we didn’t skimp on the skin-soothing ingredients either, making sure to include as much Aloe Vera and German Chamomile as we could to help keep skin cool, calm and collected. And to top it off, we made it subtly smells like a delicious dessert, but we don't recommend eating it – but if you did, it’s A-OK as we only use natural and edible ingredients in all of our formulas.
Aqua (H₂O’s Fancy Name), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Stearic Acid, Cetearyl Alcohol (Plant-Based Emulsifying Wax), Ceteareth 20, Niacinamide, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera), Glycerin, Glyceryl Monostearate, Squalane (Olive), Piroctone Olamine (Olamine Salt), Allantoin, Bisabolol (German Chamomile), Mel (Honey), Sodium Dehydroacetate, Fragrance (Phthalate Free - Vanilla), Sodium Citrate, Pyrus Communis (Pear) Fruit Extract, Acetum (Apple Cider Vinegar), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Citric Acid (To Balance pH).

What ingredients do you avoid when making a moisturiser?
There's lots of things you won't find in this cream (or any of our other products) because they were all formulated for family members and close friends. This includes Paraffin and Mineral Oil which derive from petroleum but are commonly found in commercial moisturisers like Sorbolene. We don’t think putting the stuff that goes into our cars on our skin is the healthiest thing we can do.
We also don’t use any synthetic preservatives such as Parabens and Phenoxyethanol, although they're pretty common too, including with a few brands that claim to be natural (you know who you are!). We avoid a lot of other things too, way too many to list here. We also don't use any useless, trendy ingredients like stem cells from Swiss apples or super power jellyfish DNA, just natural, effective ingredients for healthy skin.
Is this a face cream or a body cream?
We like to keep things simple even if marketing can sometimes tell us otherwise and get us to believe we need a different cream for every part of the body. This cream is made for your skin so rub it on whenever you like on your face and body, and hands and feet too, we don’t discriminate.
Free Recycling Program+
We might not have words like "Earth", "Nature" or "Enviro" in our name, but we think we're one of the most environmentally friendly skincare companies around. We're always looking for new ways to keep reducing our environmental hoof print, and because this planet means the world to us, we've stepped up our commitment to it and part of that includes RECYCLING.
While all our packaging is recyclable, the reality is that a lot of the rubbish we put in our recycling bins is not kerbside recyclable. That's why we've partnered with TerraCycle to launch our Free Recycling Program. We did this to help all our customers ensure that their empty MooGoo bottles and bits get a new lease on life.
