Frequently Asked Questions

Why are you using animal fats in your skincare products?

After conducting extensive research and continuous learning, we have rediscovered ancient knowledge and natural methods that have been successfully practised worldwide for years. One of them is the use of animal fats such as Tallow, Emu Oil and Ostrich Oil.
These ingredients are far superior to the modern ingredients that saturate our world. 

We believe that the key to our wholesome skincare brand lies in our use of the finest natural and effective ingredients, along with thoroughly tested formulas supported by expert knowledge and traditional input, all empowered by sustainable practices.

Where do you source your Tallow?

All of our Beef Tallow is naturally rendered from the finest quality suet (kidney Fat) – sourced from 100% grass-fed, pasture-raised Canterbury beef. 

Which product is better for eczema - PURE Day & Night Cream (Tallow & Emu) or PURE Tallow & Ostrich Oil Moisturiser?

Both products are fantastic for eczema. The main differences between them are in the depth of skin penetration and the amount of Omega 3 fatty acids.

The PURE Day & Night cream (Tallow & Emu Oil)  was designed to stay on the skin for a more extended period as an active protective layer, so it's perfect to put on before bed so that you wake up with your skin feeling fresh and moisturised.

The PURE Tallow & Ostrich Oil Moisturiser gets absorbed deeper into the skin because Ostrich oil, which consists of over 70% oleic acid and palmitic acid, has an even higher skin permeability than Emu oil. Moreover, it has approximately ten times the amount of Omega 3 fatty acids compared to Emu oil, which makes it more potent.

What is 'For Her' - Cooling and Balancing Gel for Menopause Relief?

"For Her" is a fast-acting cooling and balancing gel for external application formulated to help with perimenopause and menopause symptoms such as hot flashes, sleep interruptions, and mood changes.

"For Her" gel is designed for modern women who want to live life to the fullest. It is packed in an easy-to-carry 50ml glass bottle that fits in a purse. It's discreet, fast-acting, super effective, and has a lovely smell. With just a quick dab of the gel, you can go back to your everyday life—calm, cool, and in full control.


Why do we need to use our fingers to apply the deodorants?

When you use your fingers as applicators, you can control the amount of deodorant you use (making it less wasteful), as well as feel your skin, ensuring there is nothing abnormal in your pits.

Why don't you use an applicator-type container for your deodorants?

Our deodorants are in a paste form and are packed in a metal or glass container, which allows you to use your fingers to scoop the deodorant and as natural applicators. We could have used waxes to bind the ingredients together and packed the deodorant in an applicator-type container, which would have been perhaps more elegant, but overall wasteful with the addition of unnecessary and unbeneficial ingredients as binders, making the product less concentrated and less sustainable.

Why is it better to use organic deodorants?

Organic ingredients are free from herbicides and other harmful substances.
Your armpit is close to your central lymph nodes and blood vessels. When using non-organic deodorants, dangerous chemicals like herbicides may be used in the deodorant's ingredients, leading the chemicals to penetrate the skin and enter the body.
Therefore, organic deodorants are the safest option for you. They extract toxins from your body and won't add to your toxic load.

Why don't you use wax in your cream deodorants?

Wax is being used in natural skincare as a barrier and moisture retainer. It has the natural ability to create a type of seal on your skin for an extended period of time. However, this ability interferes with the detoxification process. If you add any kind of wax to the deodorant, you seal the skin of your armpit, and the toxins that are usually extracted from your pits are left stuck in your body and in your lymph nodes without the ability to be detoxified. So as we wish for the sweat and toxins to leave the body surface and not linger, we will never add wax to our deodorants.

Why do you make a special deodorant for kids?

Kids start puberty at different ages, with many girls beginning between the ages of 9 and 13 and many boys between 10 and 15. Yet it doesn't really matter how old they are, but how safe the deodorant they use is. Research has shown that kids don't sweat as much as adults; therefore, they need a gentler natural deodorant that won't irritate their sensitive young skin while eliminating the smell, yet will still allow them to sweat in order to cool their bodies.

At 'It's All Good', we've developed the "Fresh Start" Kids Deodorant with a unique formula for kids, packed with probiotics formulated with hypoallergenic natural skin-living ingredients. "Fresh Start" Kids Deodorant is pure and gentle, baking soda free, with a silky smooth texture and is lightly scented with organic essential oils. Only a smidgen needs to be used daily for a lasting effect.

Why do you make concentrated personal care products with minimal ingredients?

We use the minimal ingredients needed to create a good product, no more, no less. For example, we never add unnecessary fillers. Because of that, our products are very concentrated, powerful, and effective yet gentle on the skin, so you only need to use a tiny bit to get great results. 

Why is your 'Good Riddance' -Mosquito & Sandfly Repellent oil free?

Unlike many other natural insect repellents that are oil-based, our 'Good Riddance' -Mosquito & Sandfly Repellent is oil-free (water-based).
Using oil on your skin may cause stickiness and irritate people, especially young kids with tactile sensitivity. Furthermore, the oil helps absorb the sun's rays, allowing them to get directly into the skin, resulting in burns.
'Good Riddance' -Mosquito & Sandfly Repellent is a light formula quickly absorbed into your skin, leaving it smooth and not sticky with a lovely faint smell of essential oils that deter insects.

Why do your pack your personal care products in metal & glass containers?

We're using metal and glass containers because they are a greener option. In addition, our containers can be repurposed or recycled.
We have chosen not to use plastic as the process of manufacturing plastic is not eco-friendly. 
First, it takes a lot of energy to produce it. Second, it's estimated that plastic can take hundreds of years to disintegrate when sitting in a landfill. Also, when plastic breaks down, it releases toxic chemicals into our soil, air and water. This problem can be avoided by recycling plastic instead of sending it to landfills. However, different plastics require different recycling processes, and most plastics can only be recycled once or twice.
On the other hand, metal and glass are 100% recyclable and can be recycled again and again.

Why are your products alcohol-free?

Alcohol is widely used in skincare products, primarily to create light textures in creams and lotions and help ingredients like retinol and vitamin C penetrate the skin more effectively. Unfortunately, alcohol does that by breaking down the skin's barrier and destroying the substances that keep your skin healthy over the long term. 
Alcohol can have many adverse effects on our skin. It harms your skin's protective surface and depletes vital substances needed for healthy skin. It can dry out your skin over time, and alcohol can cause irritation and discomfort if you have sensitive skin. If you have oily skin, it strips your skin, encouraging your body to produce more sebum (skin oils) than usual, which contradicts its purpose. Therefore, alcohol in skincare is pro-ageing.

A 2003 study published in the Journal of Hospital Infection found that regular exposure to alcohol-based products makes cleansing a damaging ordeal. The skin can no longer keep water and cleansing agents from penetrating it, further deteriorating the skin's barrier.

Therefore, all our body and house products, from Micellar Water to perfumes, body and face creams, and our 'Good Riddance' Mosquito and sandfly Repellent, are free from alcohol and other substances that interfere with our skin's integrity and overall health.

I have acne-prone skin. Will the Tallow cream clog my pores?

Tallow's molecular structure closely resembles our skin's natural lipids, which means it absorbs seamlessly into the skin without causing congestion.
Moreover, Tallow's moisturising properties can help balance sebum production while preventing acne from forming.

What is Tallow and why do you use it as a skincare ingredient?

Tallow is the oil obtained from the suet or kidney fat of animals like cows or sheep. It's not the tough, rubbery tissue you usually trim off from your steak or the residue left in your pan after cooking beef. The tallow we extract and use is a hard, white fat that stays solid at room temperature and can be stored for long periods without refrigeration. When applied to the skin, it absorbs completely, leaving no greasy feeling. Additionally, it's rich in readily available nutrients, making it an excellent source of nourishment for the skin.

Tallow has been a popular skincare ingredient for centuries, which is why the word tallow can be found in so many languages. It has been used worldwide and throughout history, dating back to the earliest mentions of skincare. Our ancestors used tallow to nourish, restore, and protect their skin from even the harshest conditions. They skillfully utilised all parts of the animals they consumed, leaving nothing to waste. Tallow was a customary and effective skincare application that could soothe chapped and irritated skin and maintain vibrant health.


What is so special about It's All Good Emu Oil?

Our Emu Oil is sourced from a reputable, pioneering Australian company. The oil was the first to be listed on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) after being assessed by the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration under the Department of Health) for its quality and safety. 

The Emus are sourced from reputable, licensed Emu farms. Their living conditions and quality are being monitored. The Emus are non-GMO, free from growth hormones, and free from antibiotics. 

Emu oil has synergistic properties throughout, including temperature-sensitive omega essential fatty acids. Every stage of production is carefully controlled, from farming the Emus to processing and rendering the fat into 100% pure Emu oil, using a patented rendering system.
