You’re Putting What on Your Face??

Tallow Balm, or in other words.. rendered beef fat!

Yep! And I love it.

Quick background: When my grandbaby was staying with us, a rash broke out on her legs. I did some research and found out about Tallow Balm and it’s healing effects on dry skin, eczema and other skin issues. There are even claims it helps with acne. Haven’t had acne in years, so to that I can’t say.

What I can say is it cleared up my grandbaby’s rash. And so I decided “Hmm, let’s try it on me!”

And I really liked it. It was super moisturizing on my face, body, and even in my very course hair. And so tallow balm became my new beauty-care staple.

But it can be a bit pricey to buy, so I decided to just purchase the tallow from my local market and try it myself.

EWWW

It didn’t work. It was gritty and did not rub into my skin. My husband was brushing it off me in bed. Eww!

Upon further research, I learned it has to be prepared. Ah! Got it.

So I got all the ingredients and prepared my own tallow balm and it works great!!

Why Tallow?

So why is tallow balm so good? Here’s some info from Toups & Co Organics (which I verified through other research.):

  • Since it’s rendered animal fat, tallow is incredibly similar our own skin. So, when issues like dryness, eczema, or acne arise, tallow can soothe the skin and provide the exact mineral requirements needed for optimal healing.
  • Includes vitamins A, D, E, K, and CLA

Plus

  • The Romans and ancient Egyptians regularly used tallow as a moisturizing agent and a cure for burns, scrapes, and various other ailments. Whether it was used as a balm, ointment, or salve, tallow was a readily available resource and a healing must-have.
  • Even 200 years ago, tallow was a common household item—and a regular ingredient in homemade soaps, lotions, and other skincare products.

All I can say is try it. I love it

Directions:

Where to Buy

Now if you’d rather buy it then make it, then I suggest Toups & Co Organics. They also make great deodorants and dry shampoo! Haven’t tried their other products, but I plan to.
