Summer Solace Tallow Brings New Life to Ancient Traditions with Regional, Tallow-Based Skincare - Summer Solace Tallow


Oakland, California – Summer Solace Tallow, leader of the Slow Body Care Movement®, is radically revitalizing the traditional practices of our ancestors by uniquely redefining the skincare landscape with regional, animal-based ingredients.

Slow-made, by hand, and in small batches with locally sourced, organic suet from Northern California pasture-raised cattle, owner and artisan Megan Bre Camp's line of holistically crafted skincare and home goods is leading the way to a regenerative, fully traceable future in the realm of self-care. 

 Megan's connection to land and animals runs deep as a woman of color, originally from Alaska,  with indigenous roots in the Vietnamese highlands and the Filipino countryside. That intrinsic respect for the spirit of the Earth palpably permeates the business. She says, "It is a wise practice for sound health and nutrition to eat organic, seasonally, and regionally. What we put on our skin should reflect our local environment – potent essential oils and nourishing fats from the plants and animals that sequester carbon from our atmosphere, grown and grazed on regenerative soil. It is so powerful to care for ourselves and our environment holistically in this way, just as our ancestors did."

 Megan is as passionate about her sourcing as she is about quality skincare. She renders all of the tallow used in Summer Solace's product line, slow-cooked in copper vessels that come directly from organic suet harvested from Cattle pasture-raised by Stemple Creek, a Northern California ranch with which she has a solid personal relationship. And it doesn't stop there – from the local and indigenous-owned Séka Hills' organic olive oil used throughout the line to the wild-harvested Mendocino bladderwrack seaweed, locally roasted coffee beans, and coastal California sea salt; Summer Solace proves that skincare can be made beyond sustainably.


Summer Solace's offerings include a series of profoundly nourishing tallow balms, a variety of moisturizing low-lather soaps, a sensually scented tallow salt scrub, a line of tasteful water-based perfume mists, and artfully composed aromatherapeutic tallow-beeswax candles that smell genuinely divine.
