When I was writing A Real Food Alphabet, the children’s book I recently published, I debated about what foods to include to illustrate the letter T. I ended up chosing turkey and tongue, because I’d already listed other traditional fats such as ghee, butter and lard. Tallow was definitely one I seriously considered though!
Beef tallow is comprised of 50% saturated fat, 42% monounsaturated fat and 4% polyunsaturated fat. It is made from rendering suet, which is the hard, white fatty layer that surrounds an animal’s organs, specifically the loins and kidneys. The tallow of pork is called lard, rather than tallow.
Grass-fed beef tallow, as pictured above, contains antioxidants, vitamins such as A, D and K, anti-microbial palmitoleic acid, and the anti-inflammatory essential fatty acid called Conjugated Linoleic Acid, or CLA, which has been linked to cancer prevention, improved brain function and fat loss. Tallow also contains the same lipids or fats that are present in healthy, supple human skin oil. Therefore, tallow is thought to prevent dryness at the cellular level without smothering the skin’s barrier like petroleum-based lotions can.
Benefits of Tallow
- Improves the protective barrier function of the skin (palmitic acid aids in doing this)
- Prevents moisture loss
- Regenerates the appearance of healthier, more youthful looking skin
- The omega 9 (oleic acid) in grass fed tallow also helps the other active components to penetrate deeply into the skin
- Stearic acid in tallow improves the skin’s suppleness and flexibility (aiding in damage repair and barrier function)
- Also contains palmitoleic acid (omega 7) – a basic building block of our skin, but production of this declines with age
- Contains vitamins A, D, E, K, and B12 – all highly beneficial to the skin, and are only naturally found together in animal products
One of our community members who serves as a volunteer moderator, Cheryl Casale Huftalen, makes Stripped Body Care tallow balm that she sent me last year as a token of her appreciation. She sent me 2 four-ounce jars and I liked them so much, I purchased another 2 of the eight-ounce size a few months later. I love that we have many options for nourishing foods and products available to us! What I really like about Cheryl’s tallow balm is that it is whipped, and while that process does include a little less tallow, I find it is so much easier to apply. It feels silky and luxurious to me. I really enjoy the scents she uses as well. I experience them as so refreshing and clean. The essential oils added can be made to order and she recommends up to 2 or 3 at a time, which I’ve really liked. I can more easily discern what essential oils are used that way. Cheryl only uses grass-fed tallow from an Amish farmer she knows and trusts, cold pressed olive oil and quality essential oils in her balm. I actually met the farmer at the last Wise Traditions conference!
I have found that if I consistently dry brush my arms and thighs where I tend to have keratosis pilaris develop, followed by application of Chery’s tallow balm, the condition resolves and my skin is smooth! I like the lavender/frankincense combination for that purpose. Both very nourishing essential oils for the skin. The eucalyptus is a recommended alternative to petroleum based Vick’s vapor rub. I honestly wanted to eat the lemon, as well as the combination of cloves and orange that Cheryl sent! I have used tallow balm for soothing rashes, and itches and recommend it for children and adults!
I myself just placed another order for an upcoming trip I am taking to enjoy the sun! While we often think of tallow balm for the dry winter months, I love it for sun protection as well!

82 Responses to T is for Tallow
There’s nothing like tallow for human skin! I use it from cuts to diaper rash to just moisturize. It always does a beautiful job.
I’d love to try it on my daughters chapped lips and skin in the winter. My husband is looking for something to ease his eczema. I love that it’s naturally soothing and full of vitamins. Tallow hadn’t actually occurred to me before, but it could be a wonderful soothing option to keep around the house. I’d love to try it on my poor feet and elbows too.
Yes! I hope you’ll have an opportunity to try it!
I love Tallow!
I made whipped tallow and added lavender. It has been great for my skin and hair. I also use it for my baby. And lately I have been using it on wounds and scars with some success. I am almost out. I would love to try one that someone else made, or even be the guinea pig for proving that it helps tighten loose skin after weight loss and that it’s the ultimate anti-aging cream.
I got eczema with my most recent pregnancy. I tried so many different things and tallow balm has been the only thing that’s helped soothe and change the appearance of the rash!
My son is two months old and unfortunately the eczema is still hanging around :(
Would love to try her tallow balm
I also deal with keratosis pilaris. I’d love to try this out. While I do a pretty job at incorporating healthy animal fats in our diet, I’d love to experiment with them on my skin! One of my kiddos also deals with occasional eczema, and I’m wondering if this would help out. So thankful for the blessing healthy animals (fats and vitamins) have been to my family! I’m so thankful I found nourishing our children on Facebook!
So thankful for you as well. I look forward to receiving an order from you and helping you heal :) -Cheryl
Hi Tanya, we’ve definitely had reports from our community members over the years that tallow balm helps to relieve virtually all skin conditions, including eczema! I would encourage you to try it and use it very consistently for the treatment of eczema.
We use tallow for everything! I use it on my hands and face. We used it as a diaper lotion for my son when he was tiny. My husband loves it too, especially on chapped hands after rock climbing. We use it scented and I scented. Would love to try the scents mentioned here!
I never have tried tallow to be honest with you. I definitely would like to try!! Going to her website right now. Thank youuu :)
Oh! I’d love you to try it!
I have never tried tallow before or even thought of trying it but after reading this it sounds like something amazing to add to my regimen I have stretch mark’s I could possibly try fading with this and I get dry skin on my legs some times. I would seriously be so happy to try the tallow balm!
I haven’t used any lotion or potion that I have found to be more nourishing. I don’t think any plant based products can compare!
I’ve been using tallow for a few years now. Love it!
I would love to try tallow balm on my eczema. The dermatologist has thrown every steroid cream she can at it. Add eczema to my dry, aging skin, and I hardly feel human! Hopefully, silky, smooth skin isn’t a pipedream. Growing old is one thing, looking old is an entirely different animal.
Although we have been eating a traditional whole foods diet for many years now, I am still discovering new foods and methods of preparation. Growing up with a school system and a household that often said “fats are bad for you” took a long time to unlearn, but my taste buds were quick to appreciate our change to pastured pork lard and real grass-fed butter! I am definitely interested in the anti-bacterial properties of tallow…. Could this be used as a hand sanitizer when travelling or camping?
Our daughter is adopted and is biracial and every day she suffers from itchy skin. We have tried everything. Living in the DRY desert does not help. I think tallow could be our answer! Pick me, please!!!
The recipients are randomly chosen! I will update blog post to clarify that! I do think tallow balm may be of value to your daughter!
What a great giveaway! My skin has gotten incredibly dry looking lately, and i don’t use commercial products for myself or baby. This sounds perfect. I especially worry about what goes on my baby’s skin, so i love the simple ingredients for her. I’d never even thought of tallow before but that was an interesting read. Thanks!
There is nothing like the healing properties of tallow. I like the idea of whipped. That should make applying it a bit easier.
I’d live to win this tallow balm! I have developed eczema all over my arms and legs after the birth of my last baby. It is so red, scaly, and itchy. I could really use some skin healing and itch relief. I have been using coconut based creams but this sounds so much better. It would be great for my kids skin too!
I would love to try out tallow. I am slowly trying to convert over to a more natural and non-toxic lifestyle. I am a nurse by trade, I love the idea healing without the side effects of modern day medicine. It sounds like a super healing product being antimicrobial, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory. I bet with the olive oil and essential oils it is amazing! Thanks for sharing what sounds like a wonderful product.
I only use tallow on my skin and the skin of my baby and toddler. I would love to try whipped version for easier application. I also love the option to choose my own scents! It never occurred to me to use as sun protection. I may be trying that as well this summer.
My husband and I both suffer from dry skin. I have tried a tallow product once but it was so hard. I love that this is whipped! Thank you for introducing me to it!
This is so interesting! I am always learning something new with Weston A Price foundation. I have never used tallow but would love to try. We live in Colorado so the climate is always on the drier side. I am sure it would be great for our dry skin, skin protectant for diaper changes, and chapped lips. Amish farmers are so awesome their furniture as well is the highest quality I have ever seen.
I love tallow for chapped winter lips and dry hands (from washing all of our dishes). My son’s cheeks get windburn and if I put a little tallow balm on them overnight, in the morning they are nice and rosy and supple again. I have the ability to make my own tallow balm, but if I won the giveaway I would give your beautiful product to a certain near-vegetarian who has very dry skin. It would help to convince her that we are meant to use and love animal products.
I would love to try this tallow balm! I have made my own in the past and it is by far the best body moisturizer I have ever tried. I’ll probably never buy regular lotion again since it is so watery compared to tallow balm. I have used it on my young daughter’s skin and it is so soothing even compared to another baby balm or oil she has. I have also gifted tallow balm to family members for Christmas and they have absolutely loved it!
I tried making my own whipped tallow balm. I did not like the results. It felt very greasy and eventually molded. Right now I am using plan. Tallow on my hands with good results. I would love to try someone else’s whipped Tallow!
I experience it as incredibly luxurious! I have had several jars now and none have molded, and I didn’t keep them in the fridge!
I make and we’ve used tallow balm often. It is one of the best things to use on extremely dry skin. I’d like to not need to make my own and try someone else’s balm! I typically mix mine with some Vit E and cocoa butter, then whip. Excited to be entered to win a book too!
Hi Susie, the book drawing will be offered to those who enter the giveaway with a comment like yours and subsequently purchase one of Cheryl’s products, forwarding the receipt after the giveaway recipients are announced!
I understand the importance of good quality fats, in fact, when I cleaned up my diet over 6 years ago I started at the top of the food chain. I loved the book Eat Fat, Lose Fat, I found it very inspiring. Up until this point I have only used tallow for cooking. I am intrigued by the idea of using tallow for skin applications. In my home I follow the adage, “if you would not eat it do not put in on your skin”. I would love to try a sample of the tallow balm. That book would be a great addition to my homeschooling library too. ;)
I would love to try tallow balm for my eczema. I have used a tallow soap that has helped like nothing else, and I imagine that balm would have the same effect. I have naturally dry skin and have been wanting to try tallow balm. I like the fact that this one is whipped as well. It would make it easier for me to apply, and for me almost 2 year old son as well, since he’s starting to take an interest in helping to take care of himself.
Fascinating! I would love to give Tallow a try. So many uses, I’m not sure where to start first. Here in the Midwest. I can’t get over how dry the Winters are. My lips constantly have a shriveled look because they are so dry. So maybe that would be my first spot? Then my kiddos. Thanks for the article; I love to learn and now with a possibility to try 💕
Hi Heather! Here is some more information about tallow balm that I posted about another company I’ve recommended: https://nourishingourchildren.org/2015/03/01/tallow-balm/. I still definitely recommend Vintage Tradition, however I am preferring Cheryl’s whipped balm at present.
I was just thinking the other day I needed to find some tallow lotion for my hands. They have gotten so rough from dish soap and I need something to soften them back up! I recently moved, so the farmer I was getting it from isn’t close anymore. So I need a new quality source- Will check this out!
I love tallow for my skin! I have been using Shea butter and it hasn’t been working well at all.. I hope that I could win this tallow. I like that it has essential oils added to it. The grass fed is definately an wonderful feature!
I would love to try this as I’ve been dealing with dry skin for the first time this winter. I’m also pregnant and interested in using it as a belly balm to moisturize my skin and prevent stretch marks. I would also try it on my toddler who still has some dry spots on her feet after getting Hand Foot Mouth disease a couple weeks ago. She loves to get into my Shea butter and put it on her skin, so this would be another option for her to “play” with too. I’d also use it for the new baby coming this summer, of course.
I think tallow is the thickest most nourishing body and face cream out there. I put it on after a shower and it absorbs well and also feels soft to the touch. I have eczema on my fingers sometimes, and it soothes them. Adding a little jasmine essential oil gives it a nice scent. I also love that it is a part of the animal that doesn’t go to waste.
I love tallow! I use it on both my kids and myself. I also like to use it as a diaper rash cream.
I love tallow! I use it on both my kids and myself. I also like to use it as a diaper rash cream. I’m definitely going to check out her website!
I would love to try the tallow balm. I get rough patches on my hands and elbows, and it sounds like this would help. I don’t have as much access to tallow as I do to lard, but there are some restaurants that use tallow to make french fries. I always try to go to those restaurants. Maybe I should try making my own when I get my next beef order.
I’ve never tried tallow balm! How wonderful to learn about something new. I’ve whipped my own coconut oil balm but it doesn’t work on all parts of my body, clogging pores and giving me pimples. My upper arm keratosis pilaris always gets worse in the winter too. Even if I don’t win, I want to check out her balm. Thank you for the recommendation.
I would love to try the Stripped Tallow balm, because I sm extremely curious to see how it compares to lard, which I already incorporate
Into my beauty regimen, (yes, masked with lots of essential oils! LOL! ) My teenage son also suffers with keratosis pilaris – and I would rather avoid prescription meds, (which his doctor recommended), if I can find an all natural alternative!
Wow! Reading every post and the well written article was so informative. My interest in tallow cream is definately piqued. The sents sound so wonderful. I would choose the orange/clove if I won. Can unscented be purchased? If so how would one blend the oils in…just add drops and apply after mixing in the palm of the hand. I am curious about so many aspects… would unscented have an unpleasant natural odor? ILikely NOT! I am always reluctant to use cortisone cream and just learned Tallow is an option. Lusting here now. I would like to share this with friends and family. What an awesome thing to now have in mind. I’d like to try rubbing on my feet before bed and wrap in comfy socks. That and other fun tests. I loved reading Tallow was considered for Sandrine’s publication and bavkground there. In order to qualify for the book drawing we must purchase this whipped Tallow (prior to the drawing). Correct? I want both of these great products. What a blessing these both are. Thank you, women for using and sharing with this community, your creative blessings.

Thank you for the helpful information! I haven’t ever used Tallow cream or read about it before. I have very dry skin in the winter and using the tallow cream sounds like it would be very helpful. My husband is also suffering from abnormally dry skin this year and would benefit from it’s use. I am always on the lookout for natural products to use for my family. I will definitely be checking out the website!
I would love to win this Tallow balm! My 2 yr old has very bad eczema on her wrists. Tallow has been the most helpful fat I’ve applied. I make my own Tallow balm following a 9:1 ratio with olive oil. It is spreadsble, but smells quite strong like Tallow. I would love to try a whipped, nice smelling balm!
I just got the book “Nourishing Fats” for Christmas. We have been eating a traditional whole food diet for several years. We have our own chickens and goats. I have tried making lotion out of the goat milk but to no avail. I would love to try the tallow, as I live in Florida and my skin is very dry. I work out every day too so I would love the benefit of the natural product on my skin Thank you!!:)
We love using tallow. I render it myself. Nothing goes to waste. We share some with the birds. My dog gets some in his food. The chickens get what the people can’t eat. We cook with it and make lotion with it. I put it on my face every night. I want to learn to make candles with it as well.
I love tallow for everything.
I’ve been very picky with everything that I and my family use including moisturizer.
I made body butter at home using tallow, Shea butter, cocoa butter and our own beeswax. Although it always turned out harder than what we would like, it works as moisturizer.
Would love to try the luxurious of this tallow balm that Sandrine mentioned in her article.
It made me fooling just reading it.
Thank you to you two for offering these nourishing stuff!
I struggled with eczema in childhood & as an adult. When I became pregnant with my 4th child, my skin went insane. I could find no lotions or soaps or anything that I could use with pain. I tried coconut oil but that made it worse (did you know coconut oil can draw toxins out of your body when applied topically? Not what you want to do when you have a painful rash!)
Finally I began to use straight tallow on my skin. It was the only thing that I found helpful…but it was nasty to put on & smelled gross. I have attempted to make tallow balm & whipped tallow balm. I used these but they did not exactly turn out how I thought they would. They were difficult to use and on the greasy side. I would LOVE to try real whipped tallow balm! Thanks!
I’ve never tried tallow products before, but have always been curious. I love to dry brush but then don’t always put the best products on my skin after (guilty). Tallow would be so much better for the skin. Lavender/Frank sounds heavenly! Thank you for the opportunity to win a jar to give it a try!
What a great giveaway. I’m glad to know that tallow would have been included in the gorgeous Alphabet book. I’d love to have the opportunity to try the whipped tallow balm. I would try the lemon and frankincense blend if I won.
I would love to try tallow! I have some areas of very dry skin, and have tried pure shea butter, coconut oil, among other things, and nothing has really changed much. My hands have gotten very dry this winter, and I’d like to try tallow on them as well. I have thought about getting some tallow, but have never tried it. I love natural fats, and think this may be my next addition for my family. Thank you for the chance to try some!
This sounds wonderful! I switched to tallow balm a couple of years ago, and love it! I use it primarily for my face, and believe it’s probably the best thing for your skin out there! I’ve started using it twice a day, even under a light dusting of food-grade powder and food-grade blush. Recently, though, I’ve started encouraging my kids to use it on their faces, hands, and eczema patches. It’s worked wonders for them. The last batch I made, I whipped, and agree, Sandrine, the whipped tallow is light and luxurious, and much easier to spread. I would love to try Cheryl’s!
I would like to give tallow a try as I never have before. In fact, I’ve never heard of tallow for the skin before. My husband and I both struggle with different forms of dermatitis. Even with a good diet we still get flare ups and it is very frustrating never finding anything natural that works well. Thank you for this opportunity and good luck to all!
I have always struggled with dry skin and acne for a long time and it’s a goal of mine as a dietitian to learn more about the effects of food on skin health. I would love to try Cheryl’s tallow balm for personal use and then to recommend to clients. Coconut oil skin-care products are a regular part of my skin care routine, however, I am looking to improve the overall glow of my skin naturally while avoiding the many toxic skin care products out there. Tallow has many wonderful nutritional uses, however I have experimented with its use for skin. As a grad student, where funds are limited, I also love to take advantage of any promotional.
Thank you for this giveaway opportunity! I would love to try this for my dry, itchy sensitive skin. I think it would be especially helpful to use during pregnancy. During my first pregnancy I threw out my conventional beauty products and replaced them with handmade simple ingredients, but I had a difficult time finding a nice lotion alternative! I have never heard of using tallow. I’m excited to use this vitamin rich fat on my skin.
I’ve been using tallow balm for over a year. It’s great for chapped lips and ragged nails. Wonderful overall for healing the skin. I’d love to try the eucalyptus which is wonderful for burns. Lemon has always been my favorite. So many other scents to try; it would be great to sample them all.
Two of my children and I have struggled with varying degrees of eczema our entire lives. We have tried countless creams and lotions and soaps and serums to soothe our skin, but none came close to helping as much as tallow. When we purchased some grass fed beef from a local farmer, I requested some of the fat, rendered it, added some other beneficial ingredients, and we slathered ourselves in it. While we did smell a bit like a good steak, no one complained, and the scent did not linger. The softness, however, did! We have long since run out of tallow, but we still remember how comforting it was to our skin. Hopefully we will have another opportunity to enjoy its benefits.
I think it’s great that there is a return to using tallow & lard! I have made soap with tallow before & love how it helps my families but haven’t tried to make butters yet. I would love to try it! Thank you both for offering the giveaway! Good read too!
Wow I never thought to use Tallow on my grandson the has eczema so bad. I would love to win this look forward to trying your product. Thank you so much for the opportunity.
My husband and daughter have keratosis pillaris and I did not know that there was a cure for it! I am interested in trying whipped tallow balm because I have tried balm that are not whipped and they are difficult to apply. If I can’t get it on easily it is much less likely we will use it. How wonderful that we can trust all the ingredients. They appear to be top notch.
Hi I use beef tallow already. I use it for my dry lips and skin. Every time I shower I slather it on my elbows, knees and heels. I’d never thought to use it where I have keratosis Pilaris. I’m going to try that after dry brushing. I’m also almost out of mine so would love to win this giveaway.
How awesome!! I’ve never tried tallow but use lard regularly! I love expanding my knowledge and being surrounded with like minded peers!
I love using tallow for diaper rash, dry skin, chap stick, wrinkle cream, cuts, scrapes, and anything else that needs healing! I’ve never made it myself, but a family member of mine luckily has and shared her supply with me. If I won a jar, I’d happily use this on myself and my children to nourish them through the largest organ of our body. Our wood stove keeps the house pretty dry so tallow is a gem here.
I’ve never tried a tallow based moisturizer but it sounds amazing, especially the whipped blends! I can only imagine how soft it would make your skin feel. Between the cold months and heating with wood, my skin gets pretty dry. Normally I don’t use moisturizers as they’re usually full of junk and have overbearing perfumey scents, but this brand sounds great. I would definitely want to try the eucalyptus blend. I’m not opposed to paying more for better quality products but I’d sure like to try it before I buy it. ;)
I didn’t even know before reading your blog about keratosis pilaris. I knew about the bumps, but not that it is a known condition. I’d love to try the combination of dry brushing and tallow on my family members and see if they get the same results. I tried tallow based cream once before and I liked how soft it made my skin. I love how it is all natural and I don’t have to worry about applying chemicals to my skin.
My experience is that I need to be consistent, and give it time. It doesn’t resolve immediately, but if I do it daily, or even every other day, it does!
Thanks for the chance to win! As a mom of two littles, I always travel with tallow for an all-purpose ointment, and use it daily on my face. I’ve had a lot of positive comments about my skin. I always attribute it to tallow! I once had a nurse ask my about my skin, and I told her about tallow and its benefits. She had never heard of it before:( Yikes! Historical knowledge is lost. It would such a privilege to win a jar. . .I was especially intrigued with the frankincense whipped tallow. That smell always reminds me of my late-mother who loved that oil, and we used it for her in palliative care.
I was able to try tallow products at the wise traditions conference. They really condition the skin and I love the idea for my toddler. It is much easier to apply high quality fats to her skin sometimes than to get her to eat them. I am excited to try the scents as many tallow products do not smell that great. I am excited about this line.
I would like to try tallow balm especially in the winter time when things are so dry. Regular lotions are really yucky with all the chemicals and bad oils! I’ve never made tallow balm myself, but have considered trying it before. The only problem is sourcing a quality tallow and taking the time to render it and find the other ingredients that go in, although this tallow brand sounds very simple and good! It is definitely something my hands and face could benefit from.
Interesting! I never thought of using anything other than plant-based oils for moisturizing the skin. I’m excited to try this!
I would love to try some tallow for mine and my kids faces and hands. We live in the interior of Alaska and it gets very dry in addition to the frigid temperatures. Our hands often chap easily in the winter time and can even be painful. My face has always gotten dry in the winter months, even prior to moving to Alaska. I hope to be chosen for this product, as it sounds like exactly what I need as well as my kiddos. Thank you for this opportunity!
I would love to try Cheryl’s whipped tallow! My only other experience with tallow skincare is Vintage Tradition’s tallow balm which I have enjoyed. I love the idea of the eucalyptus whipped tallow being a substitute for the nasty chemical laden Vicks. Sadly I have many friends who continue to think that Vick’s is a good product despite the ingredients. The citrus whipped tallow also sounds amazing. I love the smell of lemons! Such a refreshing and invigorating smell! I look forward to trying her products.
I have never heard of or tried Tallow. My son has allergies which results in eczema. We are currently using prescription medication to give him relief. I would love to try a new natural product.
I love that no chemicals are used. I’m looking for more natural alternatives. This seems to have so many naturally occurring vitamins, it’s packed full of good stuff. We’re taught in modern day that fats are bad when the opposite is true. I’m looking forward to adding more natural products for my family to use. Excited to try this. It’s seems very multipurpose and I’m looking forward to it.
I purchased tallow balm and have been using it on my face. I use it twice every day, morning and night and have noticed the pores on the cheeks have become noticeably smaller, and I don’t have as much excess oil on the forehead during midday. I have used tons of different products to combat the eczema on my hand and nothing worked long enough. After using tallow balm on my hand for about 10 days the eczema has calmed down.
I have struggled with extremely dry skin ever since I was a young girl. I’d often scratch my skin so raw that it would bleed, scab over and repeat. When I learned about nourishing, nutrient dense foods in my mid-twenties, my skin improved drastically. But when the cold air arrives in Northern Vermont every winter, my skin becomes uncomfortably dry. I have heard so many great things about tallow and think it would do wonders for my dry, cracked farmer hands (that family cow still needs to be milked in the winter :))! Thank you for the opportunity to win some tallow balm.
