What is tallow?

Tallow is a natural, animal-based ingredient made from rendered beef fat that has been used for centuries in skin care. It is rich in essential fatty acids and nutrients, making it a deeply nourishing and moisturizing option for all skin types.

Whether you're looking to improve the elasticity and radiance of your skin or reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tallow is a powerful and effective choice. Plus, its natural, sustainable sourcing makes it a great option for those looking to incorporate eco-friendly products into their routine.

Is tallow suitable for all skin types?

Tallow is generally considered to be suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Its high levels of saturated fatty acids make it an effective moisturizer and protectant, and it can help to improve the texture and appearance of the skin.

Is tallow good for the skin? 

Tallow has a number of beneficial properties that make it an excellent ingredient in skin care products. It is rich in vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, D, and E, as well as essential fatty acids that help to nourish and moisturize the skin. Tallow also has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to soothe and calm irritated skin. 

Tallow can provide a number of benefits, including: 

  • Moisturizing and nourishing the skin: Tallow is rich in essential fatty acids, which help to keep the skin moisturized and nourished. 
  • Soothing and calming the skin: Tallow has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to reduce redness and irritation. 
  • Protecting the skin: Tallow contains natural antioxidants that can help to protect the skin from environmental damage. 
  • Supporting skin health: The vitamins and minerals in tallow can help to support overall skin health and wellness. 

How should tallow skin care products be stored?

Tallow should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. This will help to preserve the effectiveness and prevent the growth of bacteria.

Why is the texture different from my last order?

At lower temperatures, tallow will be solid and may have a waxy or thick consistency. As the temperature increases, the tallow will become softer and more pliable, and the product may have a smoother and more spreadable texture. 

This change in texture can be affected by a variety of factors, including the temperature of the product when it is applied to the skin and the ambient temperature of the environment in which it is stored. As a result, tallow based skin care products may vary in texture depending on the conditions under which they are used. 

Overall, the changes in texture that tallow based skin care products may experience due to changes in temperature, different batches, different cows, change in seasons, what the animal ate are a natural characteristic of the ingredient and should not be a cause for concern.

How does tallow compare to other skin care ingredients?  

Tallow is a unique ingredient that offers several benefits for the skin. It is rich in saturated fatty acids, which can help to moisturize and protect the skin, and it also has natural preservative properties that make it an effective and stable ingredient in skin care products. In comparison to other skin care ingredients, tallow may be less well known, but it is a natural and effective option that can help to improve the health and appearance of the skin.

Do you use preservatives? 

Preservatives are not required in tallow based skin care products because tallow itself has natural preservative properties. Tallow is a form of rendered beef fat, and the high levels of saturated fatty acids found in tallow make it an inhospitable environment for bacteria and other microorganisms to grow. This means that tallow can help to preserve the products it is used in, making it unnecessary to add additional preservatives. 

Additionally, tallow has a long shelf life and does not spoil easily, making it a stable ingredient that can help to extend the shelf life of skin care products. This means that tallow based skin care products can be made without the need for added preservatives, which can sometimes be harsh or irritating to the skin. 

Overall, the natural preservative properties of tallow make it a valuable ingredient in skin care products, and its ability to extend the shelf life of products without the need for added preservatives makes it an attractive option for those looking for natural and effective skin care solutions. 

Is tallow non comedogenic? Can it cause breakouts?

Tallow is considered to be non comedogenic, meaning that it is unlikely to clog pores or cause comedones when used in skin care products. This is because tallow has a similar composition to our own skin, and is easily absorbed without leaving a greasy residue.

Although non comedogenic products are less likely to cause breakouts, it is still possible for them to do so. This can happen if the product contains other ingredients that are irritating to the skin, or if the person using the product has particularly sensitive skin. It is always a good idea to patch test a small amount of the product on a small area of your skin before using it more extensively. 

Can I use a tallow on my face? My body?

Yes, tallow can be used on the face as a moisturizer or as a cleanser. Tallow is typically solid at room temperature, so it can be applied directly to the skin and massaged in to create a thin layer. Tallow can be especially beneficial for dry or mature skin, as it is very moisturizing and may help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Yes, tallow can be used on the body as a daily moisturizer. Tallow whip is typically the lightest in texture, making it easy to apply and absorb quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy residue. Tallow is non comedogenic, so it is unlikely to clog pores or cause breakouts.
