The super nutrient area around a grass fed cow’s kidney is called suet. It is rendered into tallow and is naturally nutritious, containing vitamins A, D, E, and K. Also present is Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) which is an incredible anti-inflammatory, as well as Palmitoleic acid, which is an antimicrobial. The tallow to human fatty acid profiles are similar, so all that topically applied nutrition is absorbed efficiently through the skin. The other amazing thing about the fatty acids profile is that all this goodness is naturally preserved... no artificial preservatives! Oh, and one more “ultra” important point. Grass fed is of utmost importance because if a cow is fed grain, the CLA presence is diminished.
You may not know this, but Tallow was the original skin balm long before big pharma began concocting expensive creams and lotions that often contain hormones and carcinogens. Over time the influence of pharmaceutical company’s propaganda took control and the fickle public began to embrace it, turning a blind eye to the time honored nutrition and healing power in tallow. Getting back to the basics reminds us that nature always provides the best remedies.
More than a moisturizer, we have been thrilled to hear reports that Tallowderm Skin Balms and soaps have healed or controlled skin issues such as eczema, ingrown toe nails, diaper rash, acne….and much much more. Just check out our customer’s testimonials!
Sharone was concerned with health and wellness long before it became popular. She and her husband John spend a significant amount of time growing their own herbs and vegetables and living off the land. There are no GMOs in this family. They firmly believe 1 Corinthians 6:19, "Do you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you?" In light of this they nourish their "temples" with back-to-the-basics methods.
A few years ago, Sharone developed rosacea and was told by dermatologists the only way to control it was by taking three different prescriptions that were full of carcinogens. Unwilling to accept that, Sharone delved into researching a natural remedy and discovered the power of nutrient-dense tallow from grass-fed cows. Over time, she and John perfected the recipe for Tallowderm. Not only did it control rosacea, but it controlled their son Chad's eczema. Friends and neighbors reported it aiding in a number of other dermatological issues and kept asking Sharone to make more. A business was born.
The skin balm became so successful at Ohio's markets and festivals, tallow-based soaps, natural deodorants and Tallowderm Ultra became organic expansions. Chad marketed and expanded Tallowderm into California and the rest of the country. Today Tallowderm products are sold in a number of health-conscious stores, but you can get yours right here.
All of Tallowderm’s worthiness has now been paired with another one of nature’s skin miracles, CBD. CBD (Cannabidiol) provides a unique balance of healing. It is derived from the hemp plant through cold water process distillation which stabilizes the oil from the plant without degenerating the nutrients. Our hemp CBD oil comes from a reputable organic company (thanks Buddha Farms!) and is grown with healing intent during the growth and processing stages. CBD oil is non-psychotropic (no high) and works well in the body’s systems. Also, hemp oil is known to be a superfood and provides magnificent healing throughout the body when taken orally.
Tallow and CBD share many similar attributes when it comes to healing the skin, as they heal at a molecular level. Together these two natural elements add suppleness to the skin and help heal many skin irritations caused by food born illnesses in the body that manifest in our skin. Tallowderm Ultra repairs and regrows collagen, diminishes scars, and smoothes fine lines.
Hemp CBD contains Linoleic Acid, also known as Omega-6 and Linolenic Acid, also known a Omega-3. These are essential fatty acids required by the body yet cannot be produced within the body. The LA and LNA can help enhance growth of the cellular structure of the skin, promote rapid healing and reduce inflammation or irritation in the skin caused by free radicals, foods, and chemicals put into the body.
