No, it's not the launch of the latest twist on the new to die for Grande Triple Flat White Mocha at your on-every-corner coffee behemoth (but seriously, do they even sell actual, basic coffee anymore?!), but it IS the newest piece of relaxing luxury your pavement pounding, ladder climbing, hustling hottness has been searching for! Lavender essential oils blend harmoniously with marshmallow leaf and root (I know what you're thinking...marshmallows? What kind of sweet tooth sorcery is this?! Fret not, these don't contain those Jet-Puff monstrosities you remember from your last camping trip, but the leaves and roots from the marshmallow plant, a demulcent herb, which is a great emollient...i.e. cooling, soothing, and slippery!) for an uber calming balm that helps hydrate your skin while improving its ability to retain moisture. *Sigh*, sometimes it's good to be a basic B.
Tallow*, jojoba, beeswax*, essential oils (Bulgarian lavender), calendula, alkanet, lavender, marshmallow leaf & root
*As always, made with the best dang skin loving, grass fed, local tallow we could find, and local, unadulterated beeswax
While you may be rooted in old ideas, you are not, in fact, a plant, nor are plant oils what your mammalian skin craves. While they can feel initially moisturizing, over time they interfere with your skin's own sebum production, causing your body to produce even less, keeping you trapped in a cycle of dependency. Tallow, coming from our bovine brethren, is molecularly much closer to the oils your body produces, so it delivers a moderate and pH balanced boost, even gradually helping to heal the skin, causing you to need less over time. Grass fed tallow is packed full of fat soluble vitamins A, D, K, & E, which are readily available for cellular uptake, providing deep & regenerative moisture. What you put ON your skin is just as important as what you put IN your mouth, which is why we use upcycled & local food grade ingredients, all safe enough to eat! Slather liberally anywhere your skin needs a little love. For use on lips, hands, face, ass... tallow’s great for skin when it's been fed grass!
