Cows raised on Maine pastures are happy and healthy!

Pastured cows are now finally reclaiming the limelight on the healthy food arena. Lately there have been more and more dairy products boasting of being organic and grass-fed or pastured, and they command a high price — grass-fed butter like Kerrygold and Organic Valley and Grassmilk (organic Valley). However, nowadays they don’t get nearly enough recognition for their value as translated to skin care.

Now that pastured and grass-fed milk are trending especially among health-conscious consumers, more and more scientific studies are being carried out to compare grass-fed versus conventional-fed (grains, mostly GMO corn, fed to cows raised in confinement, so called CAFO) cows. Grass-fed cows’ milk is rich in omega-3 fatty acids (CLA, EPA, DPA, alpha-LA) in a good ratio with omega-6 and omega-9 FAs, saturated fatty acids [cancer-fighting butyric acid and tumor-inhibiting caprylic acid, anti-viral and anti-bacterial lauric acid, antiviral caprylic and capric acids], vitamins B and E and beta-carotene, lactic acid (a form of alpha-hydroxy acids), amino acids, antioxidants (glutathione and selenium), and minerals (calcium, iodine,zinc, potassium).

I plant 3 rows of different kale varieties during summer. I love feeding them to the cows; it’s like candy to them!

Milk lotions are not new, but those are mostly from goats, and most commercial goat’s milk lotions use powdered goats milk. My cows’ milk lotion is probably the first in the market, at least here in Maine, as far as I know.

It’s time to extend the benefits of grass-fed/pastured cows’ milk to the skin by external route!

I have always said that my own eczema which I suffered from for 6 years improved with the use of my lotions. Other friends and customers have told me my lotions helped with their psoriasis. Knitters swear that their flaky hands used to snag their yarn frequently until they started using my lotion. Of course, I cannot make any healing or medical claims on my lotions or FDA will shut me down (this is also the reason why I cannot formulate a sunscreen lotion). So my only claim is that my lotions help moisturize the skin, and I don’t even put that on my labels.

I will let the below photo progression as shared on her timeline by a Mooed in Maine lotion user speak for itself.
