scalpcream milltownMooGoo – What’s all the hype about?

MooGoo is a skincare range which was developed in Australia after farmers noticed the remarkable effects an udder cream was having on cattle on dairy farms! Their udders were in fantastic condition (bare with me I’ll stop talking about cow’s udders soon I promise!!) and the developers decided to see if they could adapt the product to a less greasy form which would be suitable for humans…and so MooGoo Udder Cream was born! The success of that product has led to the development of a full range of products which I recently started stocking in Milltown totalhealth Pharmacy and I have to say I am seriously impressed!! I decided to put together a little review of the products which are specifically suitable for mums, babies and children for my WonderBaba followers because if you are looking for natural skincare options for your little ones this may well be the range for you!

Nappy Balm

I recently tried out this cream on my little ladies skin and just loved the texture of it.  It glides on easily and provides a good barrier and also has anti yeast properties which can be the cause of some nappy rashes.  Its nut oil free and is light and comfortable on a babies skin.  It’s worth noting that whilst i wouldn’t recommend it..its edible.. so if your little one gets their hands on it don’t panic if they have a mouthful!

ISBmilltownIrritable Skin Balm

This is one of the ranges best selling products.  It can be used by adults or babies and is great at soothing irritated dry skin.  It also has both natural anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties so is great for areas like creases in skin which are commonly affected by these sorts of irritations.  Particularly for dribble rash, eczema behind the knees  and in the nappy area of babies.

Full Cream Moisturiser

This is a super creamy moisturiser which is great for normal to dry skin.  It contains sweet almond oil and coconut oil so is very soothing and it smells pretty nice too!  It’s a nice option for people who want to use natural products on their little ones and themselves.

shampoomilltownMilk Shampoo

This shampoo is suitable for little ones and is glucose and coconut oil based.  It is great for sensitive scalp as it avoids irritation which may occur with other shampoos and it gives the scalp and chance to heal and repair itself.

Natural Mini Moo Bubbly Wash

Once babies reach about three months of age I think it’s a good idea to start using a gentle cleanser in the bath.  This one is sodium laureth sulphate (SLS) free and so doesn’t dry or irritate the skin.  It also contains some colloidal rice bran which helps to moisturise and soothe the skin.

Mudder Udder Cream

This is a preservative free nipple cream for use after breastfeeding.  It soothes and comforts sore nipples as it contains all natural (and edible!) ingredients so theres no need to remove it before a feed.  It’s also lanolin free so its suitable for vegans and those with a lanolin allergy.


They do a whole range of other products which you can see on their website www.moogoo.ie but these are the ones that I thought would be most relevant to you parents!

My name is Sheena Mitchell and I'm a pharmacist with my own business Milltown totalhealth Pharmacy in Dublin 6. From working in the pharmacy I've realised that there are a lot of first time and experienced moms who might benefit from hints and tips from a pharmacist who can balance healthcare advice with real hands on experience from my important work as a mother of two! I hope to bring you regular advice and information and answer questions that you have! Being a mother and pharmacist are my two favorite things and I'm delighted to have this way of bringing my two worlds together! All questions and queries are gratefully received but otherwise sit back, relax, and let the solutions come to you!
