Tallow for skin care - traditional use meets modern science
Tallow For Skin Care
The skin care industry would have us believe we need patented, chemical-based formulas to bring relief and nourishment to our skin. The vast majority of ingredients found in skin creams have not been assessed for safety and many are known carcinogens, neurotoxic and downright scary considering our skin readily absorbs much of what is applied to it. We can do better. We must do better – for our children.
When you mention tallow rendered beef fat as a solution to our modern day skin care dilemma, it’s common to be met with a look of confusion. Ask your Grandmother, however, and you'll get a different response! Before man-made chemicals emerged onto the marketplace, our ancestors predominantly used tallow for skin care management – and for good reason.
Tallow is a skincare solution that requires no further improvements or enhancements.
The fatty acids present in grass-fed tallow are naturally compatible with the biological composition of our protective outer skin layer. Not only do its unique properties allow for rapid absorption leaving no greasy look or feel but its nutritional composition make it a top choice for eczema, psoriasis and other inflammatory skin ailments. It is rich in vitamins A, D, E and K unlike vegetable oils. Tallow also contains the potent anti-inflammatory CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) as well as palmitoleic acid, which is anti-microbial.
Many pregnant women wonder if it's safe and effective for stretch marks? Yes! Baby's delicate new skin? Yes again! Sensitive facial skin? You bet! You get the picture "it is literally food for your skin. Truly natural. In a league on its own" let your skin be the judge.
