Collection: Lipidology: Organic Grass-Finished Beef Tallow Skincare

Tallow (suet) is nature's gift to us. It is one of the purest, most nourishing fats in the world and happens to be the most compatible fat for our skin's cellular structure which is why it makes the best deep moisturizer. 

Tallow contains fat soluble vitamins that our skin needs such as A, B, D, K, E, omegas and fatty acids. The unique combination of vitamins found in tallow are not found in any plant based oils. This is why grass-fed/finished beef tallow is the star ingredient that makes up most of these decadent creams, balms and chapsticks. Tallow absorbs deep into the skin leaving it dewy, soft, healthy and youthful. Our blends are whipped to perfection and have a rich, creamy texture.

Why Lipidology Beef Tallow? 

Beef tallow is a natural skin saver. 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 the way many seed oils do. Tallow has an impressive nutrient profile. It contains fat soluble vitamins that are bioavailable and easily assimilated. It is one of the few natural products that contains naturally occurring retinol (true vitamin A).

The Most Moisturizing Cream You May Have Never Heard About

Pump up the volume! Beef tallow for plump and youthful 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.

Reducing Food Waste

Tallow is made by rendering suet which is the fat of cattle or sheep. This is typically the part of the animal that is discarded. 

We're helping to reduce food waste by utilizing this incredibly nourishing and healthy fat by turning it into something beautiful. 

Our philosophy is nature knows best.
