The Tallow on Everyone's Lips
Tallow is a special kind of fat sourced from around the kidney of a cow and is also called “leaf fat.” When it comes from a 100% grass-fed cow, it has the same vitamin spectrum as our own skin and can be used on a variety of skin ailments. Humans have used tallow for various skin needs for over 20,000 years and we are proud to continue this ancient tradition and make it accessible to you.
We source our products from a small family maker in Indiana, USA. They are prepared in small batches and packaged by hand. We source our 100% grass-fed beef tallow from local farms that meet our sourcing standards.
Since tallow is sourced from 100% grass-fed cows and we follow a dry rendering process, occasionally depending on the diet, age, and breed of the cow, some of our products may have a slight grass-fed beef scent to them. As we always say, we can take the tallow out of the cow, but we can’t take the cow out of the tallow. This is a normal and natural occurrence from using 100% grass-fed cows in our products and many of our customers do not notice any scent.
Tallow varies in color and consistency due to breed and age of the cow, the farm’s region which can impact the cow’s diet, and more. Additionally, as we infuse plant matter into our oils, that can change the color of our products. Some balms might be smoother, firmer, creamier, silkier, or grainier depending on the type of tallow used. Occasionally, you may even find it’s a bit runny if left in a warmer room. These are all normal variations that happen and there is nothing wrong with your tallow-based product. You can always resolidify tallow by placing it in a refrigerator until solid.
Our soaps and skin balms have a shelf life of one year. Glide-ons and lip balms are good to use for up to two years as beeswax is a natural preservative.
