The functional benefits of sheep milk have been celebrated for centuries — used in ointments and lotions to heal wounds and scarring. Its anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties help to reduce redness and breakouts and make it ideal for use on sensitive skin.
A high natural fat content makes sheep milk a wonderfully nourishing moisturiser that not only helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines but provides essential antioxidants via vitamins like A, C, D and E, as well as AHA — a gentle, natural exfoliant that helps to brighten and rejuvenate the skin.
Sheep milk varies. It’s sometimes ideal for cheese and produce and other times perfect for skincare.
With no Australian brands working within the sheep milk skincare space, we saw an opportunity to not only fulfil a functional skincare need but to work with Awassi sheep farms across Tasmania to celebrate the full potential of this valuable ingredient.
Ewe Care addresses a significant gap in the Australian skincare market and gives life to exceptional ingredients that are otherwise going to waste.
