Sometimes you need a basic lotion. Something that you can put on your face, the baby’s bum, cracked heels, dry skin, sun burns, scars and stretch marks, and more. Something that is safe, natural and completely chemical free. I dare you to find a store bought body product and find a label that does not contain preservatives, fragrances, thickeners, and ingredients that The Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Database wouldn’t deem toxic. They just don’t exist. Not even body products from a health food store are completely free of these chemicals. It is especially important to avoid these chemicals if you are a woman, because many of them are hormone disrupters. They will wreck havoc on your endocrine system.
Now on to the good part, we have created a lotion that is safe enough to eat and absolutely safe on your skin! This is a tallow based lotion. Our tallow comes from 100% grass-fed cows. This means it’s vitamin and mineral content are much higher than conventional tallow. Our cows are never given antibiotics or growth hormones. It’s safe enough to eat.
- Tallow is readily absorbed, effectively moisturizes, but doesn’t leave a greasy residue on the skin.
- Tallow contains abundant natural fat-soluble activators, vitamins A, D, and K, as well as vitamin E, which are found only in animal fats and which are all necessary for general health and for skin health.
- Tallow contains fats like conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which has anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as palmitoleic acid, which has natural antimicrobial properties.
We tested this lotion on an ICU ward. The nurses there love how it has helped their dry cracked skin.
With some lavender, tea tree, chamomile and rosemary essential oils, in a very light concentration, it makes an amazing diaper rash ointment. It really helped heal up a circumcision. I used this with my cloth diapers and didn’t have any trouble. (This was only a 6 week trial because our foster baby moved on. )
One of our lovelies got a pretty bad sunburn. We used this tallow two days in a row and it made an amazing difference in how quickly her skin healed.
This lotion is thick and a little goes a LONG ways. If you want it to be a little less thick we can add more olive oil. Just let us know.
This lotion is UNSCENTED but we will custom scent it to your preference using essential oils. If you have an essential oil blend that you love we can give it to you unscented and you can easily scent it yourself with your essential oil blend. (Just add drops of the essential oil and stir until you achieve the smell intensity you want.)
