Why we LOVE Tallow!

Why we LOVE Tallow!

Let’s dive in so you can understand why we love tallow for skin health. 

What is Tallow? 

Beef tallow is a form of rendered fat that comes from gently extracting extra fat deposits after processing cow meat. The fat is slowly melted to preserve nutrients and separate it from the yucky stuff you wouldn't want to put on your skin. 

I render the Tallow myself to ensure the cleanest purest results and only use tallow from grass-fed cows that I get from local farms... Happy cows make the purest tallow :)

 Grass-fed cows produce tallow full of vitamins and minerals your skin needs to thrive. 

Tallow contains high concentrations of fat-soluble Vitamins A, D, and K in a balanced combination with their activators. This is a big reason why beef tallow has such a profound impact on your skin + overall health.

Grass-fed tallow also contains Vitamin E (four times as much as grain-fed cows). It even has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties thanks to high concentrations of essential fatty acids your skin needs.

  • Vitamin A – Encourages the production of collagen, elastin, and healthy skin cells. This helps strengthens tissue to keep skin firm, smooth and youthful. On top of that, it has the ability to heal a variety of skin issues, like acne. It can also help slow down the effects of aging on your skin. 
  • Vitamin D – Contributes to skin cell development, repair, and metabolism. It’s able to protect and rejuvenate your skin by protecting against free radicals that cause early aging on the skin. 
  • Vitamin K – Plays an important role in skin tone, texture, and overall health. It can soothe skin inflammation and irritation while helping speed up your healing.
  • Vitamin E – Repairs and reverses free radical damage. This powerful antioxidant can deeply hydrate and promote healing in your skin’s physical appearance.
