I love this soap! The tallow in it is from our grass-fed heifer we had processed and I rendered the fat into tallow. How wonderful is it that something that is usually tossed away makes such a beautiful soap! Of course, it also has fresh raw goat milk.
This is a soap that was used a lot by our homesteader ancestors as they would process their own animals and use everything they could for household items.
Tallow from cattle fed and finished on only grass, and never fed grain, contains the highest amount of beneficial nutrients.
Grass fed beef tallow is deeply moisturizing. It also helps to prevent the skin’s loss of moisture. Tallow is uniquely biocompatible with the way our skin cells are made. You can tell when you put tallow on your skin. It absorbs right in, and it’s almost like your skin is drinking it right in. It doesn’t sit on the surface and stay oily, like a plant based oil or butter does.
Grass fed tallow contains the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, K, and B12. It’s really interesting to note that this particular combination of vitamins is found in animal products only. No plant product contains this same combination of vitamins. These vitamins are extremely beneficial for skin.
Believe it or not, grass fed tallow has its very own antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. This is great for anyone dealing with skin conditions, such as acne.
Grass fed tallow is rich in minerals, which is wonderful for skin health. Grass fed tallow also contains something called conjugated linoleic acid, often abbreviated CLA, which is very important for its anti-inflammatory properties.
Raw goats milk soap!
I milk my own dairy goats, mostly for my little boy as he is lactose intolerant and also very anemic and the goats milk is much easier on his tummy. Our girl, Lilly, has blessed us with so much milk that I’ve been able to start a little business to help bring in some money on the side.
So, I am able to offer handcrafted, hand poured soap from hand milked goats!
Ingredient list (common names):
