This week we catch up with the lovely Crystal Fieldhouse, founder of ecology wholistic skin care. Crystal is a podcaster, mindfulness leader and real food advocate with super sensitive skin and a history of adult acne and eczema.
Her skin was always up and down. Clear or breaking out, calm or flaring up. So she knows how painful, embarrassing and frustrating it can be dealing with skin issues and finding skincare products that help to calm red, dry, itchy, flakey skin, so you can stop feeling self conscious and ashamed of problem skin.
When Crystal could not find a natural, chemical-free moisturiser that met her personal standards and didn’t irritate her sensitive skin, she spent 12 months researching and developing her own.

Hi, this is Guy Lawrence, I’m joined by Stuart Cooke
Our lovely guest today is Crystal Fieldhouse. Crystal, welcome to the podcast.
Thank you so much for having me on guys.
Guy: Look, it’s going to be a fantastic topic. We’re very excited to learn a few tips from you that’s for sure. The first question I’ll ask you is if you were in a bus stop and a complete stranger come up to you and say, “Oh, what do you do?” What would you say?
Crystal: What I do? I make my own skin care products. We make beautiful skin care for people with dry and sensitive skin, and we especially love helping people with eczema and dermatitis, so they’re really a problem skin.
Perfect. I always love to start with that question just to give people a bit of a wrap around. Take us on your journey a little bit if you mind Crystal, because I saw you speak, we spoke together at Tasmania a couple of years back and I know there’s a whole history behind everything, what’s brought you up today and actually created Ecology Skin Care. Would you mind taking us back from the beginning and filling everyone in about yourself and your own journey?
Yes, I’d love to. I’m a Kiwi living in Australia. We live down on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. I’m into good food and healthy living which is why we shared a stage. My husband and I, we started eating to a paleo whole food type template around five years ago now. I also find anything to do with the mind and psychology totally fascinating. I’m a big nerd. I studied neuroscience at uni so it’s followed me through. I worked in the gym industry and the pharmaceutical industry for many years, and now I have my own skin care brand, Ecology Skin Care.
What sparked that into the skin care in the first place?
