Grassfed Beef Tallow Balm | New Formulation

We have been doing some experimenting with the formulation of our whipped tallow face and body balm in order to improve its effectiveness and consistency. We are finally prepared to reintroduce the newest iteration. The new formulation contains only 3 simple ingredients – tallow, jojoba oil and rose absolute. It is whipped to a smooth consistency to maximize its benefits and assimilation into skin.

Tallow is made by rendered beef suet or fat. Rendering is done by gently heating the suet to separate and remove any remaining tissue. The heated oil is strained and reheated until only the pure fat remains. The result is a natural fat that is approximately 50% saturated and 50% unsaturated – the same as our skin and its sebum.  Tallow contains vitamins A, D, E and K, as well as all conjugated linoleic acid (aka CLA) which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.  Tallow itself is an age-old remedy for healing and preventing dry chapped skin.

The balm is made by adding a small amount of jojoba to increase its effectiveness and rose absolute oil for a delightful scent. The ingredients are whipped to create a light and absorbable skin balm.

Our tallow balm face and body butter is available in dark glass jars in both 2 ounce and 4 ounce jars and is priced at $12 and $20 respectively. A little goes along way!

It is available for purchase for delivery or shipping ($5) through our website.  We will have it available at the Bloomfield Saturday Market this spring and you can also purchase it at the East End Food Coop in Point Breeze.

Next up will be a honey infused balm and a natural sunscreen!

About our Cattle

Pittsburgher Highland Farm beef comes from our own Scottish Highland Cattle.
They are raised on a diet of 100% grass and forages with no grain or corn – ever.
They enjoy access to quality pastures and water in a natural environment. Scottish Highland cattle combine the best cattle characteristics with sustainable grass feeding and organic practices in order to produce healthy, affordable and tasty beef for the educated consumer. We use no chemicals, hormones or other artificial additives in the production of our beef, adhering strictly to USDA standards for grassfed, naturally raised, and organic production.
