Tallow Skincare: Works Like Magic
Tallows' natural fatty acid profile matches your skin’s lipid profile more closely than any other skincare options on the modern market.
In fact, sebum actually means tallow in Latin.
Both tallow and our skin’s cell membranes have a 50 to 55% saturated fat content.
This means that it is easily accepted by your skin, that it complements the natural composition of your skin’s sebum, and that it provides nourishment and moisture without any sticky or oily residue getting left behind.
It is a perfect match,
no wonder it works
What is in tallow to make it a ‘perfect match’?
A quick look at the full list of tallow’s components will help you understand why it is so spectacular.
Lauric Acid: also found in human breast milk and coconut oil, this saturated, fatty acid has significant antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial functions.
Monounsaturated fats: stable lipids are a basic component of tallow and are important to your skin’s cell membranes.
Oleic acid: mega-moisturizing.
Polyunsaturated fats: crucial to the composition of Omega 3 and Omega 6, both of which are extremely beneficial to our bodies and skin.
Linolenic Acid: fatty acid is commonly known as Omega 3 has both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Linoleic Acid: this fatty acid is commonly known as Omega 6 considered to be ‘essential’.
Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA): Natural CLA has significant health benefits, including anti-oxidant and anti-carcinogenic properties.
Saturated Fats: saturated fats are the most ‘heroic’ component of this super skincare ingredient.
Palmitic Acid: classified as a type of saturated fat and is a natural and major component of healthy human sebum.
Stearic Acid: also classified as a saturated fat and like palmitic acid, stearic acid is a major component of healthy human sebum.
Myristic Acid: saturated fatty acid appears to have antioxidant properties, also been shown to have cancer protective properties.
Palmitoleic acid: (also known as Omega 7) skin protective properties include moisturization and the prevention of oxidative damage.
Tallow is also rich in vitamins A, D, K, and E, all of which nourish the skin directly. It is also high in minerals, and cholesterol, and has naturally photo-protective properties.
One might even call it the ultimate ‘skin food’.
