MOOGOO Scalp Cream 120gm

A moisturiser for Cradle Cap in Babies or Seborrheic Dermatitis in Adults. Many people, including babies, are troubled by skin that becomes red, dry and sometimes itchy around the scalp, hairline, neck, ears, eye areas, and along the side of the nose and mouth. These are oily areas of the skin and sometimes yeast on the skin can become more prevalent and cause irritation. This version of our moisturising cream helps return the skin to a healthy condition. Like all our cream it can be used anywhere on the body. MooGoo Scalp Cream can also be used as a general moisturiser. For more information about scalp skin conditions click here

MOOGOO Soap-Goats Milk 130gm
Many commercial brands of goat's milk soap use powdered milk. The best ones use fresh goats milk. Goats milk soap is especially suited to those people with very sensitive skin. It is the mildest way to remove old oil and grease from the skin, and replaces these oils with pure nut oils and proteins.

Note: These are big bars of Milk Soap (130g) so they last longer. Some people with smaller hands or children may find it easier if the bar is cut into two pieces.

 

Ingredients:

Caprae Lac (Goats Milk), Sodium Olivate (Saponified Olive Oil), Sodium Cocoate (Saponifed Coconut Oil), Sodium Sunflowerate (Saponifed Sunflower Oil), Sodium Cocoa Butterate, Glycerin, Fragrant Oil (Phthlate Free).

Ingredient Description
Caprae Lac (Goats Milk) A very popular milk in traditional soap making. Great for people with irritable skin.
Sodium Olivate (Saponified Olive Oil) Wonderfully healthy for the skin. So many benefits, it might be best to Google "Olive Oil Skin" instead.
Sodium Cocoate (Saponifed Coconut Oil) We used coconut oil as a stabiliser, it also helps to moisturise the skin
Sodium Sunflowerate (Saponifed Sunflower Oil) Sunflower Oil that has been saponified. Sunflower Oil is rich in vitamins A, D, especially vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Sunflower oil has a light texture making it very comfortable on babies’ skin.
Sodium Cocoa Butterate A cream coloured fatty butter extracted from Cocoa Beans. Sometimes called the “ultimate” moisturiser, it is used to ‘superfat’ our milk soaps. This means that as you wash, some oils are left behind which is why our milk soaps have got their legendary following.
Glycerin When making soap via “Cold Process” which is how we do it, natural glycerine is one of the bi-products. It is helpful to soften the skin.
Fragrant Oil (Phthlate Free) We used to use various Essential Oils in our Milky Shampoo, Conditioner and Milk Wash. EO’s are great if we could talk to each customer and check for allergies. Due to the occasional reaction to EO’s, we removed them. We want to sooth people scalps and even a very small number of reactions to EO’s was distressing for us. But people still want their hair to smell nice. So we worked with another company to develop phthalate free fragrant oil (phthalates are the things in fragrances that a lot of people don’t like) and since then the response has been great.

MOOGOO Skin Milk Udder Cream 120g

This is original udder cream that started it all. The Skin Milk Udder Cream is the lightest of our creams. It easily soaks in with skin repair ingredients and is non-greasy. Milk Protein is added to help keep the skin supple and elastic.

MooGoo’s Skin Milk Udder Cream is used in a number of hospitals in Australia as a moisturiser cream for dry and damaged skin following radiation treatment and chemotherapy.

We list all our ingredients on our website below, not only the prettiest sounding ones.

Ingredient Description
Aqua (H2O's Fancy Name) When we were told that we have to call our purified water “Aqua” we thought they were kidding, but we can’t fight bureaucracy. We aren’t trying to be fancy, but we do need to call our water “Aqua” sometimes. If we used only oils and actives, the cream would feel hot on the skin as the oils coat the skin and it becomes an occlusive. By making this cream with water, the cream penetrates the skin better which is more moisturising, soothing and cooling
Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil Sweet Almond Oil is extracted from almond kernels. It’s high in minerals and vitamins, and the types of fatty acids needed for troubled skin.
Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil Olive oil is derived from the ripe olive fruit. It’s packed with antioxidants and has a balanced fatty acid composition which restores moisture and nourishment to compromised skin. Olive oil is a great addition to natural and edible skincare.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera) Aloe Vera is a flowering succulent plant that stores water in enlarged fleshy leaves, stems, or roots. The leaf juice contains many minerals vital to the growth process and healthy function of all the body's systems, and particularly known for its healing and soothing benefits (including skin and oral health!).
Cetearyl Alcohol (Plant Based Emulsifying Wax) Cetearyl alcohol is a Plant-Based Emulsifying Wax emulsified, stabilised and produced from the reduction of plant oils and natural waxes. It’s used for combining oil and water.
Streaic Acid (Thickener) Streaic Acid is a fatty wax that holds all of the oils and water together. Without it, our cream would fall apart. It is also very softening on the skin.
Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil Rice Bran Oil is extracted from the outer layer of rice. Rich in anti-oxidants, it is also a skin protectant, rich in gamma-oryzanol helping to replenish your skin. Rice Bran Oil can be an effective substitute for lanolin and can help soothe discomfort. It's a wonderful oil for itchy "alligator" skin.
Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E) Natural Vitamin E can be sourced from a variety of plants and seeds, as they are common natural compounds. It has up to twice the bioavailability of synthetic forms. Vitamin E has antioxidant action as well as free radical scavenger properties, and in-depth studies from diversified medical fields have shown that this can slow the aging process. We use the more expensive, natural Vitamin E in our creams, not synthetic.
Piroctone Olamine (Olamine Salt) Piroctone Olamine is an organic compound. It is a non-irritating anti-yeast ingredient which helps keep the cream free from bacteria and mould
Polysorbate 60 (Food Grade Emulsifier) A lot of our customers are small. So small in fact that they have sometimes mistaken the creams their mums or dad’s put on the nappy change table for food. So we always choose the most edible ingredients we can. Polysorbates are used in a lot of foods like Mayonnaise, Ice-cream etc to hold the cream and water together. We use them to help with the same thing.
Allantoin (Comfrey Root Extract) Comfrey Root has long been associated with soft, healthy skin. Allantoin is a skin conditioner that has been purified from comfrey. A soothing and non-irritating ingredient, Allantoin is thought to help maintain healthy skin by encouraging the removal of dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of healthy skin tissue.
P Anisic Acid (Natural Preservative) This Anise derived preservative system from the basil plant is antimicrobial and skin softening.
Coco-Caprylate (Coconut Based Conditioner) Coco Caprylate is a coconut based emollient. The coconut oil derived ingredient gives the skin a smooth finish. It is a natural alternative to the silicones used in many creams and hair products.
Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride (Guar Gum) Guar gum is obtained by dehusking and milling guar seeds. Guar gum acts as a natural preservative, thickener and emulsifier. It also helps make the skin nice and smooth after using our creams.
Hydrolysed Milk Protein (For Skin Elasticity) Hydrolysed Milk Protein is one of the most nutrient rich proteins due to its complete amino acid content. Studies have found that milk protein in a cream increased skin elasticity by around 20% compared to the same cream without. Skin elasticity ensures lines and wrinkles are minimised after any movement of the skin. For people with Lactose intolerance this is no problem, however for people that are allergic to Milk Protein itself, this ingredient would not be suitable.
Fragrance (Phthalate-Free Oatmeal) We used to use various Essential Oils in our products. EO’s are great if we could talk to each customer and check for allergies. Due to the occasional reaction to EO’s, we removed them. We want to soothe people's skin and scalps, so even a very small number of reactions to EO’s were a problem. But people still want their products to smell nice. So we worked with another company to develop phthalate free fragrant oil (phthalates are the things in fragrances that a lot of people don’t like) and since then the response has been great.
Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract Skin Care needs to stay pure from yeast and mould. That is why ingredients like Parabens etc are used by a lot of companies. These work great at achieving their aim, but a lot of our “customers”prefer products without parabens.  We worked for over a year to develop a preservation system based on Hops Extract. All our creams have now been checked for preservative efficacy using the British Pharmacopeia test. We are very proud that we are probably one of the first companies to develop this natural and edible anti-bacterial system into our creams.

MOOGOO Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel 100g
After hearing and speaking to a large number of nurses and practitioners that had skin problems due to repeated use of alcohol on their hands, we set out to make a natural anti-bacterial cleanser that protected the skin.

We spent 2 years experimenting and trialling a variety of natural blends and carriers before we achieved the results shown below for cleaning hands. 

We started with a moisturising base of Aloe Vera and Natural Vitamin E.  We then added a blend of 5 different essential oils. 

When it comes to fragrance, we know everyone has their own preferences. Some find it crisp and fresh, while others prefer odourless. We’re aware that this blend may not be to everyone’s liking, but thought it most important to cater for those who have troubles with other hand washes. 

Directions

Make sure all “organic” matter is removed (dirt) and massage the cream onto the hands. Ensure you get both the tips and in between the fingers. Rub until absorbed, it’s as easy as that! 

Ingredient Description
Aqua (H2O's Fancy Name) Gathered from dew off petals of organic roses, our energised water. Hmm we just can't do it! We use purified and demineralised water as thecarrier base for the other ingredients. 
Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Oil Thyme Oil is a rich and powerful warming essential oil. I
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera) Aloe Vera is a flowering succulent plant that stores water in enlarged fleshy leaves, stems, or roots.
Sclerotium Gum (Food Grade Thickener) Sclerotium Gum is a natural food grade thickening agent that promotes hydration of the skin and the product itself. It also helps to stabilise the emulsion of other ingredients in a product.
Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea tree) Oil Tea tree oil is taken from the leaves of the Melaleuca Alternifolia which is native to Australia. 
Citrus Sinensis (Orange) Oil Orange Oil is extracted from the peel of the fruit. it’s packed with powerful antioxidants.
Piroctone Olamine (Olamine Salt) Piroctone Olamine is an organic compound. It is a non-irritating anti-yeast ingredient which helps keep the cream free from bacteria and mould
Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E) We use the more expensive natural Vitamin E in our creams, not synthetic. Natural Vitamin E has a light brown colour so discoulours products a little. It also has a distinctive scent. However Natural Vitamin E is much more bioavialable  than synthetic Vitamin E.
Citrus Limonum (Lemon) Oil  
Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Oil Rosemary oil is extracted from the plant Rosmarinus Officinalis. It is commonly used for its purifying and cleansing properties. It’s a calming and soothing oil for the skin when diluted.
Acetum (Apple Cider Vinegar) We use this as a pH adjuster.
Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract Skin Care needs to stay pure from yeast and mould. That is why ingredients like Parabens etc are used by a lot of companies. These work great at achieving their aim, but a lot of our “customers”prefer products without parabens.  We worked for over a year to develop a preservation system based on Hops Extract. All our creams have now been checked for preservative efficacy using the British Pharmacopeia test. We are very proud that we are probably one of the first companies to develop this natural and edible anti-bacterial system into our creams.

MOOGOO Irritable Balm Tube 120ml

(Same as MooGoo Eczema and Psoriasis Cream - different labeling requirements in New Zealand)

It is specifically designed for the symptomatic relief of the following:

  • Eczema and Dermatitis.
  • Infant Eczema.
  • Mild Psoriasis.
  • Seborrheic Dermatitis.

 

This balm can be followed by the MSM Soothing Cream moisturiser which is designed to keep easily irritated skin moist and supple.

Directions: Apply cream topically as required to keep skin moist and healthy.

Always read the label. If symptoms persist, consult your health care practitioner. As with all products, patch test first to check for allergies.

Ingredients:

 

Active Ingredient Description
20mg/g Aloe Vera inner leaf juice fresh Most people already know the  benefits of Aloe Vera. We loved it before we made skin care, and we love it in our creams.
Eqv 5mg/g dry Marinara chamomilla flower liquid extract Matricaria chamomilla extract contains active Flavonoid and Essential Oil compounds, which are particularly advantageous in the care of sensitive skin. 
Eqv 5mg/g dry Centella asiatica herb tincture Traditionally used for skin conditions. Google is your friend here when it comes to all of its topical benefits. 
500 microgram/g Sage Oil Dalmatian Like a lot of essential oils, some practitioners do not recommended using pure Sage Oil in Aromatherapy when pregnant. For our eczema balm, we use a small amount and it is applied to the skin rather than inhaled or digested in tea. However, when pregnant we suggest doing your own research as peace of mind is the most important thing.

 

Excipient Ingredient Description
Water – purified We could say ‘Aqua”.
Almond Oil A very moistursing natural oil with a high fatty acid content.
Cetostearyl Alcohol (also called Cetearyl Alcohol) Creams are made from a mix of purified water and oils so as to be more moisturising than oil alone. To hold water and oils together, they need an emulsifying wax. We use a plant based wax that allows the water and oils to stay together.
Polysorbate 60 Polysorbate is widely used to ensure that the oil and the water do no seperate. 
Olive Oil Wonderfully healthy for the skin. So many benefits, it might be best to Google "Olive Oil Skin" instead.
Squalane One of our favourite moisturising oils. It helps leave your skin moisturised and dewy.
Piroctine Olamine Piroctone Olamine is an anti-yeast ingredient to help keep the cream free from bacteria and mould.
Allantoin Allantoin is a skin conditioner.
D-alpha-tocopherol (Vitamin E) We use the more expensive, natural Vitamin E in our creams, not synthetic. Natural Vitamin E has up to twice the bioavailability of synthetic forms. 
Citric Acid Citric Acid is a weak fruit acid used as a fruit based pH Balancer
Xanthan Gum Xanthan Gum is a glucose based ingredient derived from Corn. It us used to keep our creams stable.
Humulus Lupulus (Hop) Extract We worked for over a year to develop a preservation system based on Hops Flower Extract. All our creams have now been checked for preservative efficacy using the British Pharmacopeia test. We are very proud that we are probably one of the first companies to develop this natural preservative system into our creams.

MOOGOO Nappy Balm 75gm

As all parents know, babies often get red and irritated skin around the nappy area. This can be caused by either a reaction to urea, or by yeast. The introduction of a barrier cream could help soothe this. As a parent, the formulator knows just how careful all parents are as to what goes on their child's skin. That is why we list all ingredients on our website, not only the pretty ones. We hope you like what we made!

Even though the refined nut oils used in skin care do not contain the protein that cause allergic reactions, we made our baby balm nut oil free for peace of mind. Parents already have enough on their plates.

Always read the label. Use only as Directed. If Symptoms persist, see your doctor/health care professional. 

Ingredient Description
Aqua When we were told that we have to call our purified water “Aqua” we thought they were kidding. But we can’t fight bureaucracy. So we aren’t trying to be fancy, but we do need to call our water “Aqua” sometimes.
Zinc Oxide Zinc Oxide helps create a barrier between the skin and so protects it from Uric Acid in urine which can cause irritation and rash. 
Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil Sunflower Oil is rich in vitamins A, D, especially vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Sunflower oil has a light texture making it very comfortable on babies’ skin.
Cetearyl Alcohol (Plant Based Emulsifying Wax) Creams are made from a mix of purified water and oils so as to be more moisturising than oil alone. To hold water and oils together, they need an emulsifying wax. We use a plant based wax that allows the water and oils to stay together.
Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil Wonderfully healthy for the skin. So many benefits, it might be best to Google "Olive Oil Skin" instead.
Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil Jojoba Oil is one of the most moisturising skin care oils around and is one of our all-time favourite moisturising oils. It is light and sinks into the skin easily. Curiously, Jojoba Oil is actually a liquid wax. 
Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) A rich moisturising butter which, in our opinion, is a great alternative to Lanolin.
Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil This is exceptionally fine textured oil and has superb moisturising and emollient  properties. It has been traditionally used to make an infusion for healing wounds but it is used in skincare for its ability to work wonders on dry aging skin.
Evening primrose oil is exceptionally high in fatty acids, especially in gamma linolenic acid (GLA) and is one of our favourite moisturising and soothing oils.
Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E) We use the more expensive, natural Vitamin E in our creams, not synthetic. Natural Vitamin E has up to twice the bioavailability of synthetic forms. 
Polysorbate 60 (Food Grade Emulsifier) We always choose the healthiest ingredients we can. Polysorbates are emulsifiers that are used in skin care and foods so we chose this to keep the oils and water together. 
Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract Calendula is well known for its healing and soothing qualities. We have infused Calendula within Sunflower Oil for babies.
Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract Matricaria chamomilla extract contains active Flavonoid and Essential Oil compounds, which are particularly advantageous in the care of sensitive skin. 
Allantoin Comfrey Root has long been known as a healing plant. Allantoin was identified as the part of the plant that performed this function and it has since been synthesised to make it more concentrated and effective. So the allantoin we use is the pure ingredient. Allantoin has been termed a cell proliferant in texts such as the "United States Dispensatory". It is said to clean away dead tissue, hastening the growth of new healthy tissue. Allantoin has been also termed a counter irritant. Allantoin produces its desirable effects by promoting and speeding up the healthy, natural processes of the body. It helps the skin to help itself. It is also promoted as preventing lines and wrinkles by assisting skin repair.
Piroctone Olamine Piroctone Olamine is an anti-yeast ingredient. Non-irritating, it also helps keep the cream free from bacteria and mould.
Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract Cosmetic creams need to stay pure from bacteria. That is why ingredients like Parabens etc are used by a lot of companies. These work great at achieving their aim of stopping bacteria, but a lot of our “customers” are very young children. So we wanted something healthier.  We worked for over a year to develop a preservation system based on Hops Extract. All our creams have now been checked for preservative efficacy using the British Pharmacopeia test. We are very proud that we are probably one of the first companies to develop this natural and healthy anti-bacterial system into our creams.

MOOGOO Mudder Udder Balm 50gm

For Breast Feeding Mums
We have made a formula which we believe is the healthiest for your baby while also helping soothe the skin and keep it in good condition. Rather than use Lanolin, we have chosen a number of edible and soothing oils and combined them with calming and conditioning ingredients.

Please Note: During winter our Mudder Udder Balm has little bits of unmelted Shea Butter through the balm. These melt as the balm warms to skin temperature.

Lanolin Free, Preservative Free, Soothing and Edible.

Ingredients: Vitis Vinifera (Grapeseed) oil Helianthus annuus (sunflower) oil (and) calendula officinalis Cera alba (Beeswax) Caprylic capric triglycerideButyrospermum parkii (Shea butter ) Polyglyceryl-3 DiisostearateTheobrama Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter Hydrogenated castor oil LecithinTocopherol Humulus lupulus (Hops) extract

Directions

After breast feeding, clean the area gently with water. Some mum's also use breast milk to clean away saliva (see study below). Apply Mudder Udder Balm. Balm does not need to be cleaned off before next feeding.

Tips for Avoiding Breast Feeding Discomfort.

In an ideal world, breastfeeding will be comfortable. Some mum's and babies have no problems from the start, while for others it can be a struggle. Everybody is different. Lactation consultants can help with specific techniques. The following information may also help you need less of our balm :)

  • Nurse on the best breast first  if you have one: Babies often nurse more gently on the second side since they’re less hungry so best breast first to dampen their appetite.
  • Ensure the correct  baby's latch: The best latch position is off-centre, with more of the areola below the nipple in your baby's mouth. Try to ensure your baby’s mouth is open with tongue down before inserting the nipple.
  • Adjust Positions: You may find that certain positions make it easier for your baby to latch on correctly and are much more comfortable than others. So experiment to find the best position.
  • Cold Pack: Some mum's find a cold pack before nursing can help to dampen the initial pain of latch
  • Clean your nipples gently after breastfeeding.  When you have a cracked or bleeding nipple, rinse the breast after each feeding with water to reduce the risk of infection. Some practitioners suggest rinsing the nipple with breast milk. This study found rubbing breast milk on the nipple after feeding worked better than Lanolin in reducing healing times: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16127520
  • Book an appointment with a lactation consultant if needed.

 

Please Note: During winter our Mudder Udder Balm has little bits of unmelted Shea Butter through the balm. These melt as the balm warms to skin temperature

MOOGOO Milk Wash 500ml

The Milk Wash is a face wash formulation packaged into a larger bottle so that it can also be used on the body. We use 5 very mild natural cleansers as a blend is more gentle than one. We don't use SLS or any other petroleum derived detergents.. We certainly don't use Phenoxyethanol or Parabens or other ingredients that we wouldn't want on our eyes or our children. We also use a mix of natural skin conditioning ingredients. We don't use Essential Oils that can also trigger reactions, but instead a blend of Vanilla with the allergy triggering compounds removed. 

Our body wash does not create big bubbles like a synthetic detergent. It washes gently and without drying of the skin. Because it is so gentle it is also a no tears formulation in children's eyes. If you are a car mechanic, you may need something stronger. If you wish to stay clean without stripping the skin of oils, the MIlk Wash is for you. If you have skin that easily reacts to a range of chemicals, than our Milk Wash is also perfect. 

Free of SLS, Silicones, Phenoxyethanol, PEGS and so much more. 

Ingredients: Aqua, Cocamidopropyl Betaine (Coconut-Derived Cleanser), Decyl Glucoside (Glucose-Derived Cleanser), Lauryl Glucoside (Glucose-Derived Cleanser), Coco Glucoside (Glucose-Derived Cleanser), Glyceryl Oleate (Glycerin Based Conditioner),Sodium Cocoyl Sarcosinate (Coconut-Derived Cleanser), Glycol Distearate (Emollient), Glyceryl Stearate (Emollient), Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride (Guar Gum), Piroctone Olamine (Olamine Salt), , Glyceryl Caprylate (Emollient), , Fragrance - Oatmeal (Phthalate-Free).

MOOGOO Natural Mini Moo Bubbly Wash 500ml

Babies need some cleansers in their bath for hygiene. Washing with water doesn’t really remove dirt and ermm..other stuff that gets on babies. But some cleansers can dry the skin, especially those that make bubbles. And every parent knows, BABIES NEED BUBBLES!

The best bubbles are made by Sodium Laureth Sulphate, and this is also a cheap way to make a wash. However, SLS can be very drying and is also a more irritating detergent than more modern natural cleansers.

We have taken a different approach. We have combined small amounts of six different natural cleaners as this can be milder on the skin than one concentrated cleanser. We chose natural cleansers that bubbled well, although the bubbles don’t last quite as long as with SLS so every now and then the water can be mixed up again to rebuild the bubbles.

We have then added soothing Colloidal Rice Bran. This creates a silky film that keeps the skin moisturised and smooth. Aloe and other skin soothing ingredients are added last. Overall we think this is the best bubbly formula that could be made for babies. We are sure your baby will emerge as smooth as a babies...

Ingredients:

Aqua, Cocomidoproply Betaine (Coconut Derived Bubbly Cleanser), Decyl Glucoside (Glucose Derived Cleanser), Coco-Glucoside (Glucose Derived Cleanser), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera), Sodium Cocoyl Sarcosinate (Coconut Derived Cleanser), Glyceryl Oleate (Natural Ester), Oryza Sativa (Colloidal Rice) Bran, Glycol Distearate, Guar Gum)Glyceryl Caprylate, Piroctone Olamine, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract.

Ingredient Description
Aqua When we were told that we have to call our purified water “Aqua” we thought they were kidding. But we can’t fight bureaucracy. So we aren’t trying to be fancy, but we do need to call our water “Aqua” sometimes.
Cocomidoproply Betaine (Coconut Derived Cleanser) Is a Glucoside. Glucosides are cleansers derived from mixing glucose with a fatty alcohol. They are generally acknowledged as the most gentle cleansers available. The downsides of glucosides are they do not foam well and there are other problems that make them difficult to formulate. However, for our own scalp we didn’t really care about the foam, we simply wanted the most gentle cleanser we could find.
Decyl Glucoside (Glucose Derived Cleanser) Glucosides are cleansers derived from mixing glucose with a fatty alcohol. They are generally acknowledged as the most gentle cleansers available. The downsides of glucosides are they do not foam well and there are other problems that make them difficult to formulate. However, for our own scalp we didn’t really care about the foam, we simply wanted the most gentle cleanser we could find.
Coco-Glucoside (Glucose Derived Cleanser) Glucosides are cleansers derived from mixing glucose with a fatty alcohol. They are generally acknowledged as the most gentle cleansers available. The downsides of glucosides are they do not foam well and there are other problems that make them difficult to formulate. However, for our own scalp we didn’t really care about the foam, we simply wanted the most gentle cleanser we could find.
Sodium Cocoyl Sarcosinate (Coconut Derived Cleanser) This is a coconut derived cleanser which chose because it is very good at cleaning while not irritating the skin or the scalp. It has a couple of other benefits too; including being from renewable sources and also has a reputation for leaving the skin silky smooth due to the fact that is an amino acid based cleanser.
Glyceryl Oleate (Natural Ester) Derived from Glycerin, this helps condition the skin and scalp.
Oryza Sativa (Colloidal Rice) Bran Used to soften and condition the skin.  
Glycol Distearate Helps condition the skin.
Guar  We use a modified guar ingredient sometimes called Guar Silk. It helps make the skin nice and smooth.
Glyceryl Caprylate When water and natural oils are mixed, they can become contaminated with bacteria, some of which can be very dangerous. Our products are often used by people with already troubled skin, and bacteria is the last thing they need. Glyceryl Caprylate is a natural way of keeping Mini Moo Wash free from bacteria. We voluntarily send our creams for testing to an independent laboratory that checks the purity of the cream if stored under 30 degrees for 2 years. This is called a British Pharmocopea Preservative Efficacy Test.
Piroctone Olamine Piroctone Olamine is an anti-yeast ingredient. Non-irritating, it helps keep products free from bacteria and mould.
Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract Personal care products need to stay pure from bacteria. That is why ingredients like Parabens etc are used by a lot of companies. These work great at achieving their aim, but a lot of our “customers” are very young children. Sometimes accidents happen and so we aim to make our creams as food like as possible. We worked for over a year to develop a preservation system based on Hop Extract. All our creams have now been checked for preservative efficacy using the British Pharmacopeia test. We are very proud that we are probably one of the first companies to develop this natural and edible anti-bacterial system into our creams.
