So what is tallow? It’s is an incredibly nourishing, vitamin-rich form of pure, rendered animal fat. Before the influx of man-made chemicals and unnatural substances in skincare, tallow was a prominent part of skincare products developed and used by our ancestors.
Tallow was used to make candles, soap, and especially skin salves and ointments. Fragrant ointments using tallow were among the most sacred of offerings to the Egyptian gods and goddesses from proto-dynastic times (3500 BCE) and was documented on their medical papyri. In a ‘practical recipe’ book “Dr. Chase's Recipes Or Information For Everybody”, written by Dr. A.W. Chase, MD in 1866 – lists ten formulations of salve, eight of which contain tallow.
Tallow contains high concentrations of fat soluble Vitamins A, D, and K (in a balanced combination with their activators) which have a profound impact on skin + overall health. Grass-fed tallow also contains Vitamin E (four times as much as grain-fed cows!), conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) which is anti-inflammatory as well as palmitoleic acid which has natural antimicrobial properties.
Vitamin A – Encourages the production of collagen, elastin and healthy skin cells + strengthens tissue to keep skin firm, smooth and youthful while helping to heal skin issues from acne to aging.
Vitamin D – Contributes to skin cell development, repair, metabolism and immune function + protects and rejuvenates skin by protecting against free radicals that cause premature aging.
Vitamin K – Plays an important role in skin tone, texture and overall health + soothes skin inflammation and irritations while helping to speed up the healing process.
Vitamin E – Powerful antioxidant that repairs and reverses free radical damage + deeply hydrates and promotes healing in skin’s appearance.
Tallow is incredibly effective in improving skin cell health due to the similar makeup it has to our skin. Our cell membranes are made up of mostly fatty acids, with at least 50% being saturated fats. Tallow is also made up of about 50% saturated fats – with the remaining amount being monounsaturated – making it compatible with our cell biology and powerfully nourishing for our cell health.
Another indication of its positive impact on our skin is it’s similarity to sebum (the oily, waxy substance that moisturizes, lubricates and protects the skin). Sebum is even translated to “tallow” in Latin!
Both sebum and tallow are also mainly comprised of triglycerides (which have effective emollient + skin replenishing properties).
The difference in our tallow balm
Our tallow balm has been described as a “game changer” in skincare. 100% grass-fed/finished tallow, combined with calendula infused organic olive oil and therapeutic essential oils to create a magical balm that nourishes and heals your skin. Our tallow is triple purified and never deoderized to maintain the vitamins and essential fatty acids vital for skin health. The organic olive oil is infused with organic calendula flowers for 6 weeks then combined with tallow and an essential oil combination. We whip to create a beautiful, fluffy and decadent balm or we pour straight into jars to create a solid but equally effective balm.
Skin health is gut health. We highly encourage a holistic approach towards taking care of your skin which starts from the inside. Our Two of Earth Tallow balm provides our skin with the necessary vitamins, essential fatty acids and anti-oxidants to support healing from the outside while you support your gut health with anti-inflammatory, fresh and organic whole foods.
