Additional Info & FAQs
What exactly is Tallow? Tallow is rendered fat from beef and other ruminats. Many minerals & nutrients and fatty acids are found in tallow such as vitamins A, D, E, K & B12 and conjugated lonoleic acid. Tallow can be rendered from a mix of subcutaneous fat, fat from around the muscles, and fat from inside the body. It is typically harder and whiter than suet. Suet is the fat rendered from specifically around the kidneys. Suet is especially high in vitamins and fatty acids and has a softer deep yellow color. Our tallow products contain both the tallow and suet.
Why grass-fed tallow? Tallow from cattle fed and finished on only grass, and never fed grain, contains the highest amount of beneficial nutrients. Your grass-fed tallow is from 100% grass-fed cows that were ,born, raised, and grazed on our family farm in NC. This ensures that the tallow is from animals that have never, ever received antibiotics, added growth hormones, or grain, and that that the animals spend their entire lives on chemical free pastures.
What about smell? The tallow used to make your balm is unrefined. We use a rendering and clarifying process including only low heat and salt. Simply put, unlike most commercial tallow, your balm is made from tallow rendered without the use of harmful chemicals, bleach, or deodorizers. This process produces a clean, natural, product and keeps the integrity of the nutrients intact. Tallow rendered using this method may have a slight natural smell to sensitive noses. This scent blends pleasantly with the natural smells of the essential oils.
How do you source your ingredients: All of our tallow is sourced from the beef on our farm. We keep our beef clean and free from chemical inputs and our tallow pure using a natural rendering process. We feel that it is important to continue this natural process using only simple, natural, ingredients that you can pronounce. For scent, we use essentails oils that also contain beneficial properties for the skin. We are a small, independent family operation, with limited volume, therefore we have to use multiple sources for our products. Our criteria when sourcing ingredients is USDA Certified Organic and 100% Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.
Shipping and Temperature: Tallow is a natural ingredient and will melt at temperatures of 95 degrees fahrenheit .Do not leave in the sun or a hot vehicle. If you are receiving your balm in the warm season, refrigerate before opening. If your product gets warm and starts to sofen too much or melt, a few hours in the refirgerator should restore it.
