What is Tallow?

Tallow is the fat from beef suet that has been cleaned, rendered, and purified. 

Suet is a nutrient-dense fat surrounding the organs, most notably the kidney. 

Here at Adiya, we source suet from the fat of humanely-raised, organically cared for grass-fed cows.

 

We chose grass-fed suet for our tallow products that is free from growth hormones, high in vitamins, and produces a high quality, nutrient-rich fat that is superior to grain-fed, factory-farmed cattle. 

Cows that graze on grass in the sun develop Conjugated Linoleic Acid, or CLA. It is stored in the fat cells that surround the cows organs, mostly the kidneys. Tallow has been used by our ancestors for years. Why you ask, because it works! This is why it is an incredible ingredient for soaps, balms, hair products, cleaners, candles and more.

Let's talk about what it does for us....

Tallow, rendered from grass-fed cattle, is loaded with vitamins A, D & K and antioxidants. Vitamin E is known to promote rejuvenation of the skin by fighting free radicals that can cause wrinkles,  and helps prevent signs of aging. It is soothing to the skin, reduces redness and irritation, and helps heal the skin. It has anti-inflammatory properties,  increases collagen production and stimulate blood flow to our skin. This is why it is great for skin irritations, scars, or dry, cracked skin.

Vitamin A is known for helping our cells regenerate, which reduces acne and skin irritation. Antioxidants fight free radical damage. Free radicals are molecules in our bodies that become unstable and damage skin cells caused by environmental stressors like pollution, sun exposure, and other toxins. This causes the collagen in our skin to break down, hence the production of wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, and saggy skin. Antioxidants help protect your skin from free radical damage, which helps reduce the signs of aging keeping your skin looking younger and healthier. 

Tallow won't clog pores and works with our sebaceous glands.  It act as a natural sebum, locking in moisture and nutrients without clogging pores. This is a significant factor in what makes tallow ideal for skincare. Tallow contains the same fats or lipids found in our skin. Lipids are responsible for the flowing of moisture through our cells. They create a protective barrier that prevents infection, maintains moisture, and flexibility of our skin.  Tallow is believed to prevent dryness at the cellular level without clogging pores like petroleum-based lotions do. Tallow and sebum, otherwise known as, the oil in our skin, have lots of the same lipids or fats as we do. The believe is this is what lets tallow absorb deep within in the skin, making it an intense moisturizer that assists in retaining the skin's natural moisture.

What do I do now?

Simplify your skincare!

Do you know what you are putting on your skin? Most can not even pronounce the ingredients on the bottles, more less identify if they are good or not. 

My goal is to help everyone reduce your everyday exposure to harmful toxins that are in almost every skin care product on the market and replace it with God's Treasure of Wellness! I truly believe He provided us with everything we need on this earth. 

Get rid of the junk!

Read the labels of all of your products. My rule is if I can't pronounce it, toss it! There are so many good apps that you can scan your products with and it will tell you the dangers or if it is safe. 

Determine what you really need!

Do you really need a product for eyes, face, body, feet, and hands? What would happen if you had one for all of them? What would we do? Think of all the time we would have. Tallow balm does it all!

 

An investment  in a few natural  products will prove more cost-effective and beneficial than a load of toxic products.
