Tallow Balm: Beef Tallow for Skin

When acne appears on your skin, rubbing it with beef fat is rarely the first port of call. But, it turns out, it should be. Tallow (rendered fat) has a chemical composition that’s surprisingly similar to human skin. The bonus is, when made correctly, it contains several vitamins and minerals found in animal products.

Since it’s filled with vitamins and minerals and resembles our skin, it’s a great healing product for people with:

  • Dry skin, 
  • Acne,
  • Eczema,
  • Redness,
  • Burns,
  • Cuts,
  • Cracked skin,
  • Scrapes, and
  • Wrinkles.

Note: Contact your dermatologist regarding the treatment of any of the mentioned conditions. Do not regard this as medical advice.

Seller Focus

Cosmetics sellers can jump on the bandwagon quite easily and expand their portfolio with this new product. You can offer it in combination with makeup accessories that go well together with a tallow balm.

You can also add tallow balms to your inventory if your primary focus is skincare products.

Since tallow is a relatively expensive product, it can attract more upscale customers who are willing to pay up for healthier skin. If you’re a luxury or organicbased products retailer, you can offer tallow balms made from grass-fed cattle only and make sure the product doesn’t contain any fillers, such as fragrances and coconut oils.
