Beef Tallow for Skin: The Secret to Soft, Supple, Glowing Skin
March 19, 2023
Are you looking for a natural skincare option that will give you soft, supple, and glowing skin? If so, you may want to consider beef tallow!
Beef tallow is a rich, fatty oil rendered from beef suet, or the fat that surrounds the kidneys and other organs of cows.
In recent years, beef tallow has become a popular skincare ingredient due to its abundance of beneficial vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids – but ONLY the grass-fed tallow type (like we use in our products), not the factory-farmed tallow type from cows that have been subjected to steroids, antibiotics and harmful added hormones.
In this article, we'll explore the benefits of GRASS FED beef tallow for skin, how to choose the right beef tallow,the best natural skincare products containing grass fed beef tallow, and how to incorporate beef tallow into your natural skincare routine.
What is Beef Tallow?🤔
Beef tallow is a type of rendered animal fat that is made from the fat of cattle, specifically the fat that surrounds their kidneys.
It has a long history of being used in cooking and as a topical skin treatment. It is high in saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids, which are essential for healthy skin.
Beef tallow is solid at room temperature and has a light yellow color. It has a rich, buttery texture and a mild, pleasant smell.
It is often used in cooking as an alternative to vegetable oils, as it has a very high smoke point and is a good source of energy.
When applied topically, beef tallow is absorbed quickly and deeply into the skin, providing it with beneficial vitamins and fatty acids.
These vitamins and fatty acids help to keep the skin hydrated and nourished, while also providing antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging benefits.
What are the Benefits of Beef Tallow for Skin?🤯
Beef tallow is a powerful skincare ingredient, thanks to its abundance of beneficial vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids. It is particularly rich in vitamins A, D, and E, which are essential for healthy skin.
Vitamin A helps to strengthen the skin's protective barrier and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Vitamin D helps to regulate skin cell growth, while vitamin E helps to protect the skin from free radical damage.
Beef tallow is also rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, which help to keep the skin hydrated and nourished.
They also help to reduce inflammation and promote skin repair. In addition, beef tallow contains conjugated linoleic acid, which helps to balance the skin's natural oil production.
All of these amazing vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids work together to keep the skin soft, supple, and glowing, arguably better than any other ingredient on the planet!
How to Choose the Right Beef Tallow😌
When shopping for beef tallow, it is important to choose a product that is made from high-quality, grass-fed beef.
Look for products that are made using organic or natural ingredients. Avoid products that contain synthetic fragrances, dyes, or preservatives.
It is also important to choose a product that is hand-rendered the old-fashioned way (like ours is), as this helps to preserve the beneficial fatty acids and vitamins by not exposing the tallow to extremely high temperatures.
Additionally, look for products that are free of palm oil as palm oil is the leading cause of deforestation – and your karma just won’t be happy about that.

How to Incorporate Beef Tallow into Your Natural Skincare Routine🚿
Incorporating beef tallow into your skincare routine is easy and can be done in a few simple steps.
First, choose natural skincare products that contain grass fed beef tallow. We recommend a soap, moisturizer and a balm to cover all your bases.
First, shower with your tallow soap – no special instructions needed here. Rinse and dry off.
Then, apply your tallow moisturizer but only a little bit! Tallow is a fat, so naturally, it’s thick and works very well while only using a little tiny bit. For example, you may only need a pea-sized amount to cover your entire arm! This isn’t lotion folks!
Finally, keep the tallow balm on your person to use throughout the day after you wash your hands. Just a couple applications per day and you’ll never experience dry skin on your hands again!
Tallow can be used on the face as well as all over the body. If applying the tallow moisturizer to your face proves to be too oily for your face during the day, then try applying it after you wash your face at night, giving it time to work its magic while you sleep.
