Tallow Balm Ingredients


Organic Grass-fed Tallow

Tallow is high in the fat-soluble vitamins A,D,E,K. It is rich in the fatty acids that form the skin's lipid barrier which is used for protection and moisture retention. Tallow's composition is very similar to the sebum our skin makes, which allows it to readily absorb into the deeper layers of the skin where it can hydrate and nourish. Due to these properties, tallow has been used for centuries as the main ingredient in skin balms, moisturizers, and ointments.


Organic Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil serves as the perfect complimentary oil to tallow due to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Studies have shown jojoba oil to be an excellent emollient agent, meaning it increases the softness and suppleness of skin without leaving it feeling oily or greasy. Jojoba oil also shares a similar composition to skin sebum, which allows it to easily absorb and seamlessly integrate into the skin.



Squalane is an ultra-hydrating, powerful emollient derived from the olive plant, that leaves the skin feeling nourished and regenerated. Squalane is a crucial component of human sebum, which is why it absorbs easily into the skin and is compatible with most skin types. Several studies have shown that squalane exhibits a wide array of skin nourishing benefits including anticancer, antioxidant, detoxifying, hydrating and emollient activities.


Organic Frankincense Frereana (boswellia frereana)

Frankincense has been considered a prized and sacred oil among many cultures for thousands of years, and was even presented to the Christ-child as a gift to symbolize His deity. This powerhouse oil possesses unique anti-inflammatory compounds that procure a wide range of benefits for the skin, including strengthening skin, soothing skin, and reducing hyperpigmentation. The earthy, warm and sweet aroma of Frankincense has even been shown to reduce stress and anxiety when inhaled.


Organic Myrrh (commiphora myrrha)

Myrrh has traditionally been used to treat inflammatory skin disorders. The combination of myrrh with frankincense has been documented in ancient Egyptian Papyrus Ebers as a treatment for a variety of skin ailments, which highlights the harmony and effectiveness of these two ancient oils together. Myrrh contains special compounds called terpenoids which exhibit anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities for the skin. These compounds have been shown to promote skin health with their ability to soothe dry and cracked skin, promote wound healing, and maintain a healthy, youthful complexion.
