About Face Creams
All natural, organic face creams made by hand in small batches by Yellow Birch Farm of Deer Isle, Maine.
The “ABOUT FACE” Story:
Here at Yellow birch Farm we strive to produce organic, healthful, and sustainable products for our family and our larger community. In addition to our organic produce and goat milk products, we recognized, being outside a lot in the sun, or snow, the need to replenish our largest organ, our skin. As a result, I have been making and using this cream since 2010. It is made with all natural, 90% organic ingredients, in small batches in my certified kitchen. People started telling me my skin looked so good, and ladies from New York who had tried it were calling to buy more. Then my friend Joanne Steenberg started using it and giving it to her friends & family, they all loved it. She started calling it, “Missy Greene’s Miracle Cream”. Well, I didn’t really want to call it that, I wanted a name that implied how it made your skin look and feel, and how, according to some users, it transformed their skin. One day soon after that I got asked for ID in the local grocery store when buying beer!!! Holy Cow! I said,” Hey, I am 52 yrs old, I don’t usually carry ID in my checkbook”… the woman said, “Well, we need ID for anyone that looks under 40.” I promptly went to my car and got my ID!
Since then, we have found that our About Face skin cream has become essential, not only for those seeking to maintain youthful, healthy skin, but for hard working farmers, sailors, fishermen, carpenters, artists, mothers, fathers, and kids. In addition to basic skin care, reports are coming back that About Face is soothing, healing, and nourishing, for minor scratches and scrapes, eczema,cracked heals, dry hands, rough elbows, diaper rash, and more. So many people have tried it, and they all keep coming back for more. Some in a panic that they will run out.
So, join our exponentially growing list of happy customers and try it !! All over yourself......it makes your skin look and feel great and among other things....you may FEEL like………..you are under 40!!
