Remember, a small amount of our products can go a long way!

      Tallow is non-comedogenic, meaning it is less likely to clog pores. It can be a beneficial option for those with sensitive or acne-prone skin.

      Can I use tallow on my face if I have oily skin?

        Yes, tallow can be used on oily skin. Its balanced fatty acid profile can help regulate oil production without causing excess greasiness.

        Golden Tallow's Shelf Life and Storage Guidance.

        Store tallow products in a cool, dry place to prevent changes in consistency. For optimal storage, we suggest refrigerating it, especially if you are in a warm environment. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight or excessive heat. Products have a shelf life of up to six months to one year.  To ensure the optimal experience with our Golden Tallow products, we recommend using them within six months of receiving your order. While tallow can maintain quality for a year or more if refrigerated consistently, our commitment to natural ingredients means we avoid preservatives. Be mindful of preventing water entry and avoid storing in warm, moist environments. If you observe any black spots, discontinue use. If your product arrives with any concerns, please reach out to us.

        What if the Whipped Tallow arrived melted? 

        We take measures to ensure that your order arrives in the proper consistency such as refrigerating and freezing it before shipment as well as ice packs in the box if needed. However, in the chance that your Whipped Tallow has melted, don't worry! Simply place it in the refrigerator for a short time until it solidifies again. The texture may change slightly, but the effectiveness of the product will remain the same. You may also use a hand mixer to whip it back to the proper consistency. 

        Does tallow have any fragrance?

          The natural scent of tallow is subtle, we use a triple wet rendering method to remove as much impurities as we can. It can also take on the fragrance of added essential oils if included in the skincare product. Currently we offer Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil scent in our face cream from a company that is makes it without fillers, Phthalates, or
          Synthetic Fragrance.

          Is tallow sourced sustainably?

            Can I use tallow if I have sensitive skin?

              How often should I use tallow skincare products?

                Frequency depends on individual preferences and skin needs. Many use tallow products daily, but it's recommended to start with a patch test and observe any skin reactions. 

                Does tallow help with specific skin conditions like eczema?

Always spot test first. For optimal results with Wagyu tallow, it's advisable to apply multiple times over several days to observe noticeable effects, given its natural composition.

                    Why Wagyu Grass-fed Tallow over Ordinary Tallows?

                      Wagyu tallow stands out in skincare due to its distinct fatty acid composition. It contains a higher concentration of monounsaturated fats, particularly oleic acid, known for deep moisturization and skin penetration. This aids in maintaining skin elasticity and suppleness. Additionally, Wagyu tallow boasts elevated levels of linoleic acid, contributing to its lightweight texture and potential anti-inflammatory effects. The exquisite marbling characteristic of Wagyu beef translates to a more intricate matrix of fats, offering enhanced nourishment and moisture retention for the skin. These qualities make Wagyu tallow a superior choice for skincare, providing a luxurious and scientifically-backed solution for those seeking optimal skin health.
