Tallow and Kakadu Plum

January 11, 2015 Petina Walsh

Organic, Grass Fed Tallow is rich in the same kinds of fatty acids that are found in our own skin. This means it is easily absorbed into the skin which improves the structure and appearance. Organic, grass fed tallow contains fat-soluble Vitamins A, D, E & K and Vitamin B12.
I render the tallow by hand from certified organic, grass fed beef suet (the highly prized, nutrient-dense fat from around the kidneys). The cows are ethically farmed using certified organic practices.
The beneficial fatty acids found in tallow include;
• Stearic acid and Oleic acid: Found in the protective outer layer of the skin and in sebum. Have moisturising, regenerative and anti-inflammatory properties. Oleic acid (Omega 9) also helps the other active components penetrate deeply into the skin.
• CLA (conjugated linolenic acid): Has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.
• Palmitoleic acid (Omega 7): Is the most active anti-microbial found in our sebum. It is the basic building block of our skin.
• Palmitic acid: Aids with smoothing the appearance of skin and helps to improve barrier protection.
