Although this original article lists Tallow as the 9th ingredient, in our book Tallow is THE PRECIOUS! I believe Cleo would agree. I can imagine she marveled at how lush, soft and irresistibly touchable tallow made her skin.

Tallow is so beneficial for our skin that the Latin word sebum (the naturally occurring oil on our skin) literally means tallow. Almost immediately after the application of tallow on the skin through body butter or grass fed tallow soaps, the body readily accepts the applied oil and allows it to moisturize deep into the layers of the skin.
