This Unlikely Ingredient May Be What Your Skin Is Missing | Primally Pure

Video: This Unlikely Ingredient May Be Just What Your Skin Is Missing

For the last several decades, we’ve been told that fats (on our plates and in our skincare products in the form of oils) are bad.

Thankfully, that myth is well on its way out.

Healthy fats are actually beneficial AND essential when it comes to our overall health, starting at a cellular level.

One fat in particular, tallow (specifically from grass fed cows), is a game changer. Not only is beef tallow a healthy cooking fat, but it also acts as a topical superfood for the skin!

Tallow is an incredibly nourishing, vitamin-rich form of pure, rendered animal fat that’s quickly making a big comeback in skincare. Before the influx of man-made chemicals and unnatural substances in skincare, tallow was a prominent part of skincare products developed and used by our ancestors.

Our ancestors also ascribed to a nose-to-tail philosophy when it came to consuming animal products. Every part of the animal had a purpose, and nothing was wasted.

Additionally, tallow contains high concentrations of fat soluble Vitamins A, D, and K (in a balanced combination with their activators) which have a profound impact on skin + overall health. Grass-fed tallow also contains Vitamin E (four times as much as grain-fed cows!), conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) which is anti-inflammatory as well as palmitoleic acid which has natural antimicrobial properties.

  • Vitamin A – Encourages the production of collagen, elastin and healthy skin cells + strengthens tissue to keep skin firm, smooth and youthful while helping to heal skin issues from acne to aging.
  • Vitamin D – Contributes to skin cell development, repair, metabolism and immune function + protects and rejuvenates skin by protecting against free radicals that cause premature aging.
  • Vitamin K – Plays an important role in skin tone, texture and overall health + soothes skin inflammation and irritations while helping to speed up the healing process.
  • Vitamin E – Powerful antioxidant that repairs and reverses free radical damage + deeply hydrates and promotes healing in skin’s appearance.

I hope this video helps to shed some light on why we use this unlikely (but incredibly transformative) ingredient in so many of our products! You’ll find grass-fed tallow in our Deodorants, Body Butters, Face Creams, Baby Balm and Lip Balms.

Having used all sorts of harsh prescription creams to treat her acne as a teenager and young adult (and dealing with red, raw, irritated skin as a result), Bethany was blown away by the effects she eventually experienced after ditching the harsh chemicals and replacing them with natural ingredients. Bethany’s journey inspired her to start Primally Pure (with an initial $250 order for ingredients + supplies) to help others experience the benefits of using clean products. In addition to leading the PP Team and envisioning new product ideas, Bethany is passionate about all things clean living, biohacking and personal growth - as well as taking regular tropical vacations with her family to reset + refresh.
