What is tallow?

Beef tallow is a rendered form of beef fat that has been cooked down to remove impurities and separate the fat from the solids. Tallow is also prized for its versatility beyond culinary uses, and it has been utilized in making soaps, candles, and skincare products due to its moisturizing properties

What is the reason behind dry rendering unrefined tallow?

At Authentic Body And Soul, we opt for unrefined tallow as it preserves the beneficial properties for the skin. Dry rendering involves no addition of water or salt to the fat during the rendering process. Adding salt to tallow fat can lead to oxidative changes when exposed to heat, and it can also break down the beta carotene (Vitamin A) present in the tallow.

Can tallow be used in skincare?

Tallow is known to effectively moisturize and protect the skin without clogging pores. Additionally, tallow is rich in essential fatty acids, such as stearic and oleic acids, which nourish the skin.  Its natural content of vitamins A, D, E, and K further contributes to its soothing and skin loving properties, making it a cherished ingredient in a variety of skincare formulations.

Does tallow clog pores?

Pure, high-quality suet tallow is non-comedogenic, meaning it doesn't clog pores.

Do you render your tallow in-house?

Who is tallow skincare for?

Authentic Body And Soul offers a range of certified organic grass-fed tallow-based skincare products for those seeking to naturally nourish their skin with simple, clean, and effective solutions.

Can I tell if a company is truly using certified tallow?

There are always indicators. Claiming to be certified should be accompanied by information about the accredited certifying body that certified the product. When a company fails to provide this legally required information, it can be a clear indicator of something amiss.

Canadian regulations on certified claims

A challenge arises when brands claim to be certified organic without listing their certifying body, as mandated by Canadian legislation. This omission not only undermines consumer trust but also skirts the legal requirements designed to maintain the integrity of organic products. Vigilance and due diligence is required on the part of the consumer. Contacting the brand for certification proof becomes essential in making informed purchasing decisions.

Excerpt from Canadian Regulations:

"Certified organic" and other similar claims are not acceptable and are considered misleading if they are used without being in connection to the name of the certification body, as it implies that products without this claim are not certified."
