OILS and FATS

Grass Fed tallow – Our cows are humanely raised right here on our rural indiana farm, where they have acres of pasture. Nine months out of the year they eat an organic grass fed diet, the remaining three months they eat a grass hay grown on the property.

Our pasture raised tallow gives the soap a creamy texture and is easily absorbed into the skin. Tallow not only makes the soap creamy and nourishing it also makes a hard bar of soap that lasts a long time.
