Why Lipidology Beef Tallow? 

Beef tallow rendered from happy, grass-grazing cows is a healing salve for the skin. It has been used by our ancestors for thousands of years as a trusted fat to treat an array of skin issues from inflammation to wounds. Our Canadian grass-fed beef tallow has a profile that is remarkably similar to human sebum. This nourishing fat absorbs quickly into the skin, hydrates deep within the cell membrane, rather than sitting on top of the epidermis. Tallow is one the most compatible fats for our skin's cellular biology.

The Most Moisturizing Cream You May Never Have Heard Of

Pump up the volume! Beef tallow for youthful and happy skin is an ancient discovery and a traditional superfat. It has been used for centuries, especially by women, to address signs of aging such as rough skin, fine lines and wrinkles. Tallow helps make skin more supple and full.

Times Have Changed

With the industrial revolution bringing in an era of synthetic goods, tallow eventually got phased out while synthetics and cheaper materials such as petrolatum replaced it. Artificial fragrances were thought to be trendy; homemakers became influenced to substitute their natural, expensive animal fats with inexpensive hydrogenated oils and fragrances. Science is beginning to reveal that many synthetic cosmetics can be unsafe.

Our philosophy is nature knows best.
