Sometimes, as a formulator, it can be a little frustrating dealing with the variations of organic ingredients. This past month we got in a new batch of Grass-Fed Tallow. I noticed it looked different and was much softer than what we normally get. When we started making the products, we quickly realized, we needed to reformulate EVERY "recipe"!! We went to work calculating, hoping we wouldn't have to throw away what we were making if we got it wrong! Fortunately, we got it right and we were able to figure it out!
No matter if you are making Goats Milk soap, or Tallow based skincare, you are at the whim of nature. With Tallow, these animals are seasonally grazed, and not offered genetically modified fodder. We take pride that our Tallow comes from 100% Grass-Fed cows. The hardness, color, smell of rendered Tallow will vary by season, breed and age, as well as chlorophyll and carotenoid level in a particular grass species. Tallow can vary in color and may have a more pronounced color or smell throughout the seasons, especially among dairy producing heritage breeds.
We always strive to use the same suppliers for our organic ingredients, for consistency in our products. However, due to the fact nature changes, our products from time to time may seem a bit different. All our products are hand-crafted, meaning they aren't made in a lab. You always can be rest assured, we do our best to make sure you have the best sourced skincare products we can possibly make for you, NO chemicals, all organic and best of all, Made in America!
