Our priority in the creation of Farmologie was to find the best natural and naturally derived ingredients with benefits for dry, sensitive and eczema prone skin, and bring them together to deliver a real difference to skin, supported by clinical trials. And, with our planet at the forefront of our minds, we have endeavoured to make our packaging and ingredient sourcing the best it can be both from both an environmental and ethical perspective; so from the provenance of our ingredients to the 100% recycled prevented ocean-plastic bottles, our carbon, environmental and social impact is always at the top of our considerations.
We have used science-busting technology to help our ‘active’ ingredients of ECOCERT sustainably sourced colloidal oatmeal flour & colloidal oat oil from Scandinavia do their jobs brilliantly.
Rich in beta-glucans, which are natural sugars that bind water into the skin making it an effective moisturiser, the oat colloidal also contains a unique antioxidant – Avenanthramide – which is clinically proven to reduce irritation and redness in skin. The high levels of trigylcerides also help to form a protective barrier over the skin to keep it hydrated.
A by-product of the food industry, the Oat Lipid oil is rich in Vitamin E and linoleic acid, which maintains the skins natural balance by replacing lipids lost in everyday activities. Ceremide rich, it allows the skin to absorb and maintain moisture, and being a natural emollient, it locks in moisturise preventing trans epidermal water loss.
Rich in fatty acids, Shea butter gently melts when applied to the skin, and when combined with Tapioca starch, leaves a silky soft finish to skin without any feeling of greasy or tackiness.
Our moisturiser contains 97% naturally derived ingredients, and by having the same pH as skin (5.0-5.5) this balanced formula minimises the risk of irritation.
The tube for the 100ml moisturiser is currently made of up to 50% recycled plastic. By recycling your tube and any other plastic that you use in your daily life, you can help us increase the amount.
