Benefits of Tallow
Why should you use tallow for your skin care?
Tallow & Your Skin: A Perfect Match
Tallow and sebum (the oil in our skin) share a striking similarity in lipid or fat composition, making tallow a natural ally for your skin.
Our tallow products are non-comedogenic and non-drying, preventing cellular-level dryness without suffocating your skin's natural barrier. They are suitable for all skin types - from oily to dry, sensitive to ultra-sensitive, and everything in between. Whether it's your face, body, hands, feet, or even baby's bum - our tallow works wonders.
Our tallow is teeming with vitamins A, D, E & K, and antioxidants. These naturally occurring nutrients help against skin aging, restore skin vibrancy, prevent opportunistic infections, and stimulate epidermal regeneration. Notably, our grass-fed tallow also contains Conjugated Linolenic Acid (CLA) that possesses potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anticancer properties.
Oleic Acid - With nearly half (47%) of tallow's fatty acid composition being oleic acid, it's a powerhouse for your skin. Deeply penetrating, it replenishes lost moisture and safeguards against future water loss. A guardian of your skin's natural oil balance, it forms a protective layer that shields against environmental damage and contains antioxidant properties to combat free radicals.
Palmitic Acid - As we age, our skin's palmitic acid can decrease by up to 50%. Tallow steps in to fill this gap with its 26% composition of this vital saturated fatty acid. Used in everything from emollients to detergents, it softens skin and retains moisture by forming an occlusive layer.
Stearic Acid - Another prominent saturated fatty acid in tallow, it functions as both a surfactant and emulsifier. It reduces surface tension, allowing water to penetrate the skin more easily, and helps products contain both oil and water without separating.
Guarding Your Skin
Regular use of our tallow products protects your skin from various external damaging factors. Its Vitamin D content plays a crucial role in preventing skin infections, while CLA has been shown to possess anticancer properties, offering an additional layer of protection.
