ORGANIC TALLOW AND WHY WE USE IT
Skincare products should nourish our skin without having to impart hormone disrupting toxins and fragrances. With our skin being our largest organ and the gateway right into our body, our skincare products should be made with wholesome, clean and recognizable ingredients this is how people cared for their skin before chemicals.
Grass fed tallow is ultra rich in the same kinds of lipids that are found naturally in youthful, healthy looking skin. Grass fed tallow also contains fat-soluble Vitamins A, D, E & K. All intrinsically balanced by nature, with no further improvement or enrichment needed. This makes grass fed tallow highly skin compatible, allowing it to absorb easily into the skin to improve the protective barrier function of the skin, prevent moisture loss and regenerate the appearance of healthy, youthful looking skin.
Using tallow was a conscience decision made by us based on it's well established history of use and because of the science behind it. Using tallow enables us to consume a widely available resource, support local farmers and families while staying true to pre-industrial recipes that were simple and functional, without weird ass conventional synthetic cleansers and conditioning ingredients usually made in part with petrochemicals. . Using tallow also eliminates our need to add a multitude of other ingredients from worldwide sources to make up the same benefits that we gain from this one ingredient. Seems like an unpopular move to make in the wake of veganism and anti commercial farming, but global warming isn't happening fast enough to start growing coconuts and palm oil plants here in Canada. We are not taking a stance against vegans, and having grown up on small scale farms could not agree more with the need to destroy our destructive attitudes towards mass meat consumption. We believe in a balance between these views, and returning to a time when we as a society had more respect for that balance.
