I recently attended the Natural Products Expo at Expo West where I discovered so many incredible natural brands, one of which was theCream. I knew from the moment I heard their wonderful founder’s story that theCream was something special. This brilliant natural skincare brand utilizes the natural healing powers of colostrum as the hero ingredient in their skincare products and you will want the scoop on them because they seriously work!
My First Impressions of theCream Skincare
I’ve been trialing theCream skincare products for about 2 weeks now and I’m seriously IMPRESSED! I’ve been trying out a number of their products and have not had one bad experience. In fact, my skin has literally never looked better. Their creamy facial cleanser is perfect for soothing and hydrating skin at the end of a long and tiring day. It doesn’t leave a residue like some cleansing oils or balms, though, which is a nice change from my usual and it’s still great at removing makeup which is brilliant. Other products I’m currently trialing include their award-winning (2015) theCream Face Cream, Concentrated Recharge Facial Serum, Concentrated Repair Cream, and their awesome Anti-Aging Skin Conditioning Body Cream. All of these are seriously awesome and I think they’re even making some serious headway on my acne scars.
WTF Is Colostrum?
Colostrum is produced by all female mammals for 72 hours following the birth of their offspring and it’s seriously powerful as it actually jump starts every process in a baby’s body.
I was lucky enough to get this story from the TheCream founder, Denie, so just imagine this in a New Zealand accent because it feels all the more magical that way!
So, what is colostrum? Well, if you’re not a mom, you probably have no idea, but colostrum is the first thing the comes out of a mother’s breast right after their baby is born. It’s not to be confused with breast milk, either, because colostrum is an entirely different substance. Colostrum is produced by all female mammals for 72 hours following the birth of their offspring and it’s seriously powerful as it actually jump starts every process in a baby’s body. It kick starts your immune system and all other bodily processes. In fact, it’s so potent that it’s largely recognized as nature’s most powerful nutrient for enlivening your skin and body cells.
So, now that you what colostrum is (or maybe you’re a brilliant mom and knew already!), let’s talk about why colostrum is so beneficial in skincare. First off, it’s highly bio-available to your body and therefore your skin. This means that your skin will easily and happily absorb it without a fuss which is great news because you’re much more likely to get the maximum amount of benefits from products which your body can easily absorb. Secondly, colostrum is a potent ingredient for any kind of skin healing and this includes hydration, healing of fine lines and sun damage as well as acne breakouts, and soothing any skin irritations or imbalances. Colostrum is highly nutrient dense and as such is packed with protein, vitamins, and minerals your skin can massively benefit from.
Sustainable & Ethically Made Colostrum Skincare : theCream ♥
Founded by Denie Hiestand, a natural health expert and former New Zealand dairy farmer, theCream was created to fulfill a need for safer skincare products that helped the body’s processes instead of hindering them.
At the request of his patients (namely cancer patients), Denie set out to create a line of products that not only didn’t include any of the harmful chemicals found in conventional products, but instead contained a potent life-giving nutrient among other cell-nourishing ingredients to help the skin function at it’s absolute best.
theCream gets it’s colostrum from natural grass-fed cows as colostrum from cows is 200x more powerful than human colostrum. Ethically sourced from New Zealand, the colostrum taken from these lovely grass-fed mama cows is ONLY the surplus leftovers which is then processed for human use. The colostrum is dried using a very low temperature drying process to preserve it’s efficacy and adheres to the most stringent, ethical processes in New Zealand.
