Four Cow Farm's Baby Care Range - 100% Natural and Organic Ingredients

Heard of Four Cow Farm? I did, about a year ago or so if I remembered correctly. But first, there are so many organic baby care and skincare players - both international and locally handcrafted - in the market. I have always been wondering how do we as mothers make our choices regarding which brand or range to buy for our kids and family?

Here's how I make my decision:

Research: Yes, I do research. There are plenty of information (reviews etc) online for international brands. For locally handcrafted brands, I try to meet the founder(s) personally to understand why and how they start making their own range.

Word of mouth: This can be a rather good indicator regarding how well received the brand is by consumers and vice versa.

Read the list of ingredients: The moment I spot an ingredient on the ingredients list that I can't pronounce at one glance, sorry, I won't buy.

Instinct / Gut feeling: As a mother, our maternal instinct is usually accurate, even if it's borderline paranoia. Lol. Hey, it's better to be safe than sorry, right? If I become doubtful just by reading the list of ingredients, I will put away that particular product, sometimes the entire range.

Having said that, now let's see why Four Cow Farm is worth the try.

In photo: My toddler likes Four Cow Farm's Baby Lotion. He says, "This makes my skin smooth." LOL.

Let's take Four Cow Farm's Baby Care Range for example. The whole range is made from premium food-grade ingredients, preservatives and emulsifiers. They never contain any parabens, propylene glycol, sulphates (SLS/SLES/ALS), cocamidopropyl betaine, artificial fragrances/colors, synthetic detergents, petrochemicals, mineral oils, lanolin, chlorinated water, phthalates.

Bold claim they have there, but if they dare to say so, I'm convinced to try. More information to digest on Four Cow Farm's Our Approach webpage.

Four Cow Farm's Baby Care Range

Baby Wash

- 100% Pure Castile Soap Baby Wash
- Made ONLY from Premium Cold-Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, with NO palm or coconut oils
- Infused with Organic Echinacea Extract (soothes and calms dry and irritated skin)
- Free from foaming additives, fragrances and preservatives
- Excellent for babies, children, and adults as an all-over hair, face, and body wash
- Suitable for irritated skin, dry hair or scalp or those sensitive to chemicals
- May be used on skin affected by hives or eczema

More info on Four Cow Farm's website.

My verdict: It is almost impossible to find 100% Pure Castile Soap in Malaysia. Pure castile soap only contains olive oil and no other oils. This makes castile soap the gentlest form of soap to be used safely on our skin, especially for babies.

The no-foam feel takes some time to get used to it if you have been using foaming body wash for a long time and this is the first time you use castile soap. No worries, you will love it. I will definitely use this baby wash for my next baby.

Baby Lotion

- Made from:
  • Pure Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Sweet Almond Oil (calming and anti-inflammatory effects)
  • Pure Cold Pressed Apricot Kernel Oil (high Vitamin E content and skin-softening properties)
- Infused with Rosemary Leaf Extract (soothing effects)
- For daily use on delicate baby skin or normal/sensitive adult or children skins
- For regular, all-over face and body use to seal in moisture and protect from dry or chapped skin
- Excellent for soothing skin prone to redness and irritation

More info on Four Cow Farm's website.

My verdict: I'm not a lotion person because I don't like the sticky feeling on my skin or my baby's skin after applying. But this lotion is different. The moment it's absorbed, you can't feel a thing except for a silky smooth feel. Even my toddler can tell me how smooth his skin feels.

Baby Oil

- Made from:
  • Pure Cold Pressed Apricot Kernel Oil (nourishes and protects with essential fatty acids and Vitamins A, D & E)
  • Pure Cold Pressed Sweet Almond Extra Virgin Oil (nourishes and protects with essential fatty acids and Vitamins A, D & E)
  • Pure Cold Pressed Macadamia Oil (absorbs to moisturize and restore)
  • Organic Chamomile (calms and relieves skin)
  • Rosemary Leaf Extract (soothes and freshens)
- A calming, soothing massage oil for babies or as a gentle moisturizer and cleanser for face and body
- May be used to soothe dry or irritated skin or skin affected by cradle cap

More info on Four Cow Farm's website.

My verdict: This baby oil will be a life saver for my next baby if ever he/she has cradle cap. My toddler had it all over his head and eyebrows when he was a baby. We had to hunt everywhere to get something to soothe his skin because I didn't want to use commercialized baby oil that contains mineral oils.

Nappy Cream

- Made from:
  • Castor Oil (anti-inflammatory properties)
  • Sunflower Seed Oil (moisturizing and safeguarding actions)
  • Soy Lecithin (nourishing and strengthening anti-oxidants benefits)
  • Zinc Oxide (protective qualities)
- A light, soothing daily barrier cream on baby's most sensitive skin
- For regular use after each nappy change, helps to protect skin and prevent the occurrence of nappy rash

More info on Four Cow Farm's website.

My verdict: Yay, no more chemical-laden tube-style nappy cream! I love this bottle because it comes with a pump! Last time those nappy cream in tubes were such a pain to use. It took a ton of patience and skill to maneuver the tube (unscrewing the cap and squeezing the right amount) and a wriggly baby. What a nightmare for first-time mom like me!

Tea Tree Remedy

- Made from:
  • Beeswax
  • Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Castor Oil (anti-inflammatory actions)
  • Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Macadamia Oil (rich and moisturizing properties)
  • Organic Tea Tree Pure Essential Oil (natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties)
- An effective and gentle all-natural salve for soothing and protecting skin affected by nappy rash, mosquito bites, scrapes, cuts and bruises

More info on Four Cow Farm's website.

My verdict: Every household needs at least one tub of this salve. Good for traveling too. Thanks Four Cow Farm for formulating this excellent chemical-free emergency balm!

Calendula Remedy

- Made from:
  • 80% Organic Calendula-Infused Olive Oil (antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties)
  • Vitamin E
  • Organic Roman Chamomile
- A rich, emollient balm for soothing and calming inflamed or irritated skin
- Can be used on skin affected by eczema, hives, bites or contact dermatitis or for calming minor cuts, scrapes or bruises

More info on Four Cow Farm's website.

My verdict: I have never tried calendula salve before. But I'm really happy to learn that this balm is good to be used on skin affected by eczema and contact dermatitis. I'm allergic to cat's hair and I'll get contact dermatitis when in contact with it (e.g. on sofa, carpet, etc). Thank you for Calendula Remedy! I will bring it along with me when I'm traveling.
