FAQs and Info

What is Tallow?

Tallow is rendered beef fat. Our tallow is sourced from local Georgia farms who utilize organic, sustainable practices in all facets of farming. The cows are grass fed and finished which produces the highest quality, nutrient dense tallow. We use a clean rendering process that filters the fat without stripping the natural vitamins and fatty acids.

Shelf life is 8-12 months. Use only clean, dry hands when using your tallow creams. Keep at room temperature, hotter temps could cause melting but does not change the effectiveness of our tallow. 

Benefits for the skin:

  1. Moisturizing: Tallow is rich in natural fats, such as oleic acid and palmitic acid, which are similar to the oils produced by our skin. These fats can help moisturize and hydrate the skin, reducing dryness and preventing moisture loss.

  2. Nutrient-rich: Tallow contains various vitamins and minerals, such as vitamins A, D, E, and K, which nourish the skin. These nutrients play a role in maintaining healthy skin and contribute to a more youthful appearance.

  3. Anti-inflammatory: Tallow has anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe irritated or inflamed skin. It is particularly beneficial for individuals with sensitive or easily irritated skin.

  4. Protective barrier: Tallow forms a protective barrier on the skin's surface, which can shield the skin from environmental pollutants, harsh weather, and other external factors that can cause damage.

  5. Hypoallergenic: Tallow is well-tolerated by most skin types and is less likely to cause allergic reactions or irritations compared to synthetic and processed skincare ingredients.

  6. Skin compatibility: Tallow has a fatty acid profile which closely resembles the fats found in human skin, enhancing its effectiveness in absorbing fully without clogging pores. 

  7. 100% Whole and Clean Ingredient: Tallow is not some passing trend! It has been used in skincare and personal care products for centuries. It is an all natural, concentrated ingredient that has stood the test of time. With no water, alcohol, or synthetic chemicals taking up space, you only need to use a small amount for maximum benefits. (Tallow absorbs easily and thoroughly. If your skin feels oily after a few minutes, you've used too much!)
