Why Tallow

Let's start off by talking about what tallow IS!

Suet is the fat that encompasses the internal organs of a cow. Since it protects the nutrient rich organs like the liver, kidney, and heart, it actually contains many of the same nutrients also found in those organs.

This fat is collected, and then cooked low and slow over a long period of time separating out the liquid fat from the hard fat. The end result is a beautiful, white and creamy substance, with little to no odor. THIS is Tallow!

This substance is incredibly high in vitamin A, D, K and E, along with their fat soluble activators. It’s also high in conjugated linoleic acids, also known as CLA’s, which are anti-inflammatory. So while plant-based fats and oils are great, we believe that animal based fats make a great addition to your daily skincare routine.

It's Safe

Many commonly used skincare ingredients are produced in a lab, not taken from nature. Tallow is a truly natural ingredients! Also, many skincare products are designed to sit on a store shelf for years, which requires intense preservation. Tallow is an incredibly shelf-stable fat. If you've ever used it for cooking, you'll know that it can sit on your counter for months, and never go rancid!

Sustainable and Responsible

All of the tallow that we use is sourced from small, family owned farms that are based in the USA! Many of the farmers that we use  are practicing regenerative practices, which means they're actually regenerating the soil! These are NOT feed lot cows, they are raised for beef production on small farms, they are grass-fed and ethically raised. 

It's Nourishing

Suet from grass-fed cows is incredibly high in Vitamins A, D, K and E, along with their fat soluble activators. It’s also high and conjugated linoleic acids (aka CLA's), which are anti-inflammatory. 

It's Anti-Aging

Seriously...whether you say anti-aging, or "aging gracefully", we promise you that grass-fed tallow is an ingredient that will nourish & heal your skin! It gives your skin a healthy glow and even plumps the skin to smooth out lines and crows feet.
