5 Reasons You Should Be Using Tallow Soap
If you are not yet using soap made with grass-fed beef tallow, you are missing out on an experience that can change the way you look at tallow AND soap!
Tallow is cow fat. Let's just get that out there. It's an ingredient used in many of today's products and used by our ancestors for thousands of years.
The fat used to make tallow soap has been rendered from the most nutrient-dense fat that surrounds the animals organs. After the cow is processed for it's beef, the suet or fat, is removed, purified and made into soap. View the process briefly in the image below.
Now that you know, view the following 5 reasons you should be using tallow soap and then buy a bar of tallow soap and see for yourself.
- Grass-fed beef tallow contains high amounts of Conjugated Linoleic Acid or CLA which is an essential fatty acid needed for optimal skin health. CLA is also a known cancer-fighter and is essential for assisting the skin in maintaining moisture.
- Tallow, from grass-fed and grass-finished cows (not commercially-raised factory farms) contain vitamins A, D and K, along with the powerful antioxidant, Vitamin E.
- Tallow soaps typically last longer than 100% vegetable oil-based soaps due to the natural hardening quality of beef tallow.
- Tallow soaps produce an extremely rich, moisturizing lather not common in all vegetable oil-based soaps. They are also non-drying as compared to store-bought, commercially-produced soaps.
- By purchasing tallow soap through a reputable company like Nefertem, you also support the entire family business ecosystem from farmer to butcher to maker to market.
As you can see, using tallow soap has more benefits than you may think. While some believe that using cow fat on their skin is gross, others understand how truly beneficial it is for their skin.
