Learn Our Favorite Tallow Benefits

Why our regenerative, organic tallow?

There are so many options for skincare products on the market these days it can take time to decide which are suitable for you and your skin. Is organic tallow good for the skin? And what distinguishes it from other natural moisturizers like coconut oil, sunflower oil, shea butter, and all the others? While some of these ingredients may also have their merits, none surpass the benefits of grass-fed, pasture-raised, organic tallow for the skin. The beauty of this healthful fat lies in its simplicity and ability to truly nourish your skin from the outside.

The Benefits of Tallow for Skin

Our skin is our body's largest organ and is incredibly absorbent and responsive to what we put on it. Due to the specific structural and nutritional makeup of organic grass-fed tallow, it is one of the most bioavailable natural moisturizers on the planet. Unlike vegetable oils, tallow's animal origins mean that it naturally contains identical lipids in healthy human skin. This structure renders it supremely capable of absorbing quickly and penetrating deeply, providing intense skin restoration at the cellular level.

Grass-fed, pasture-raised tallow also contains copious amounts of vitamins A, D, K, E, B12 and CLA. It is rich in essential fatty acids that help maintain the skin's structural integrity. Its abundant nutrient profile supports the natural production of collagen. It provides anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties, all of which help to treat and soothe dry skin and immune responses like eczema and rosacea.

As an occlusive material, tallow mimics the skin's natural barrier, providing protection from environmental and elemental wear and tear and helping retain essential moisture.

Stays Fresh Naturally

Our regenerative, organic tallow balm is also remarkably shelf-stable, especially in comparison with most vegetable and seed oils used in body care products which go rancid quickly as they're stripped of their antioxidant properties during the refining process. Rancid oils are not just unpleasant but can be toxic to the skin and cause an inflammatory response. Tallow can be stored for years without adding stabilizers or preservatives, making tallow for skin care invaluable.  

From Farm to Shelf™

Leader of the Slow Body Care Movement®

 All tallow are not created equal. As an animal product, fat can be ethically sourced from regeneratively raised, grass-fed cattle that help to draw down carbon from the atmosphere (directly combating climate change), or it can be made from the byproduct of factory-farmed, grain-fed cattle whose poor living conditions are detrimental to the health of the earth. 

Summer Solace tallow not only comes from responsibly raised and grazed beef cattle – the ranches are hyper-local, minimizing transportation emissions and dramatically reducing the carbon footprint of the final product. When considering the sustainability of your tallow-based body care regimen, the choice is an obvious one.

Also, unsurprisingly, as an added benefit, tallow made from healthy, grass-fed cattle fat is better for your skin. Higher in all the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients we seek to get out of tallow, the naturally more diverse and healthy diets of pasture-raised animals translate to a richer, more nutrient-dense tallow for use in skin care products

What is Regenerative Agriculture?

Regenerative farming is an approach to agriculture that focuses on restoring and improving the health of the soil, enhancing biodiversity, and promoting long-term sustainability. It is often considered a holistic and ecological approach to farming.

The key principles of regenerative farming include:

This involves practices such as minimizing or eliminating tilling, using cover crops, crop rotation, and composting. These practices help to improve soil structure, increase organic matter content, enhance water retention capacity, and foster beneficial microbial activity.

This can be achieved through methods like planting diverse crops, integrating livestock, creating wildlife habitats, and preserving natural areas. Increased biodiversity can lead to a more balanced ecosystem, which can help control pests and diseases naturally.

Techniques like conservation tillage, mulching, and precision irrigation help to conserve water resources and prevent soil erosion and nutrient runoff into water bodies.

Actively working towards sequestering carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it in the soil. This is achieved through techniques like agroforestry, cover cropping, rotational grazing, and composting, which increase the organic matter content of the soil.

By reducing reliance on external inputs such as synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and antibiotics, and instead, emphasizing natural systems and processes that promote self-sufficiency, such as using natural fertilizers, adopting biological pest control methods, and practicing crop diversification.
