I am a physician and highly recommended the Vintage Tradition balms after trying them for myself and family. I regularly recommend them to patients suffering from eczema and other forms of atopic dermatitis that need an emollient for their dry/irritated skin. The high quality tallow Vintage uses is better than anything you can get in your local store--without all the unwanted chemicals. The highly saturated fatty acids create a water impermeable membrane that is truly nature's remedy for dry skin. The scented balms contain nice essential oils that make them smell great and feel even more soothing. The balms goes on very nicely without leaving any unwanted residue feeling. I use it myself for my hands because they are always dry from constantly washing them in between seeing patients in the hospital. You're skin will feel amazing with this stuff. I have no financial connections to this company, simply want to help people know about how great it is!

Vintage Tradition got tallow balm right!
It is with full confidence and enthusiasm that I endorse Vintage Tradition balm. I have used their products for several years, and they only keep getting better. Having struggled with eczema and dry skin for years, I finally found a product that works - with no side effects or dangerous chemicals and perfumes that end up causing more dry skin. It also seems to help fade and diminish my freckles and age spots. When I have had a sunburn, it has worked wonderfully to take the sting and redness out of the burn, and prevents peeling.

This is by far the best skin care product I've ever used and I can't ever be without it! I found this product about two years ago when I was desperately trying to solve my problem with a itchy rash that came and went for a year. I tried over a dozen other products. This is the only thing that cured my skin condition. Since then, I use it daily as an essential beauty and skin care product. I put it on my face and neck morning and night and my skin looks and feels great because of it. It helps with everything: softness, clarity, acne, wrinkles,rashes, -you name it. I've recommended to two other friends for eczema and it keeps their eczema at bay. I've tried other tallows and didn't like like them nearly as much as Vintage Tradition. I'm so grateful for the makers of this product. Please don't ever stop making this! I can't possibly recommend it highly enough.

This is the best skin product I have ever used and I've used plenty. I've been a Wellness Coach, Herbalist and Yoga teacher all my adult life and gradually became so disappointed in everything available for skin care, that I just made my own. I used all the best organic oils, plus essential oils and aloe vera. They were good, but either disappeared too soon, leaving my skin thirsty and dry, or they sat on the surface of my skin too much. At some point, I switched to Emu oil, which was an improvement, but still not perfect. As soon as I discovered Vintage Tradition Tallow Balm, I immediately ordered some and was beyond thrilled over the concept, quality and results. I put a little in my palm and gently rub my hands together to warm and soften. Then it goes on my face, legs, feet and hands. 12 hours later, my skin is still moist and soft; itching dry skin on my legs is a thing of the past; dry heels are now healthy and pink. Thank you SO much, Vintage Tradition!

I have been using and loving this product for several weeks now. Not only has it been incredibly helpful for my mystery rash (most likely from medication) but it has been providing superior protection for my face and neck in this cold weather. I have been applying this at night and been thrilled to wake up too moist, soft skin! A great product with great integrity!

Best skin product ever
I've had this for nearly 2 months now and I don't know how I got along without it. I first heard about using beef tallow when I was googling sunburn relief remedies (I got a bad burn on my knees on the 4th of July). The worst of my sunburn was gone by the time I received this but I've been using it daily since. (And it does indeed help with sunburns!) I swear my skin looks so much better. I'm about to be 40, so this is pretty important to me. My skin seems smoother and clearer and just more supple. I use it as a lip balm, on my cuticles (they've never looked better), as a facial moisturizer, all over moisturizer, and even for any other skin issues. If I get a cut or scratch (thanks, kitties), I clean the area and apply it. Pretty much anywhere you have skin, it will help, from head to toe. I use it usually twice daily on my face and often times I feel fine going out with no or very little makeup. And I have been happily surprised with how long it lasts. I still have over half of the 2 ounce jar left and like said I've been using it daily (on my face twice per day) for nearly 2 months and I use it all over my body at times.

My skin feels and looks amazing after just a week of using your balm. I had some kind of allergic reaction going on with my face. It was irritated and looked and felt rough. I can't even really explain it except it wasn't good. I saw your product on Facebook from someone. I read the reviews, and here is mine now. I rarely review anything. But this stuff is just so awesome. I opened it up immediately when it arrived and put it on my face, and it instantly felt better, and then it took only 3 to 4 days to totally clear up applying it twice a day. I also put it on my feet, and my daughter touched them a couple days later and said, "Wow, your feet are so soft." I highly recommend this balm!

I'm 45 years old and have used hundreds of products for my skin. Nothing has ever felt as good or nourishing as tallow. I've used straight olive oil and coconut oil which just seemed to sit on my skin. I'll be using tallow from now on, head to toe! It's even great as a frizz tamer for my hair!

My grandson just loves the Tallow Balm. He is not yet two, but he runs to mama saying "tallow". He smiles when she puts it on his skin.

My kids won't stop hassling me to put Tallow Balm on them.

I really like both of the wonderful hand-crafted body creams you sent so fast. I used the Almost Unscented for a gynecological problem (I am a gynecologist), and it cleared it up. I also work with wild birds and feed raptors. My hands get destroyed. While some other products like bag balm worked, they have lots of chemicals and smell awful and are very sticky. Your cream smells REAL and sinks into my skin without leaving any greasy feel.
I just want to share with you that after YEARS of trying different products, including organic extra virgin coconut oil and even blending and making my own natural lotions at home, your Tallow Balm is by far my favorite out of everything I have tried, especially for face, lips, hands, elbows and feet. Amazing product. Thank you!

I'm writing because I received my first jar of Tallow Balm yesterday. For the past week I've had a cold, and my nose and upper lip have become quite chapped. After I washed my face, I applied the Tallow Balm and in a few moments I had to stop myself because all of the sudden my lip was feeling relieved! I applied through the night, and my skin is so much better. My nose would have taken weeks to heal! I'm so comforted to know that the cows are 100% grass-fed, which makes me think they are, of course, treated humanely. Thank you for making such a wonderful product. I hope to have a long relationship with my Tallow Balm.

This stuff is awesome! I love that it is all natural ingredients. Started using it 2 days ago and it has almost totally healed my skin allergy breakouts that I have been battling with since working at a bacteria/chemical infected place. I went to the doctor and they prescribed me medicine that cost over $100...which I could not afford. Thank you so much for bringing back a lost art of quality, sensible skin care.

I absolutely love your product. I can't say enough about it. It has softened and smoothed every bit of me.
—Gayle, Wausau, Wisconsin
I am 10 years old and I like using the Vintage Tradition Balm because it is soothing and it makes me feel relaxed. When I get a cut it helps me heal faster. When I have dry skin it softens my skin.
—Philomena, Colorado Springs, Colorado
I love your product! I'm pitching all of my old moisturizers, except my coconut oil. Your balm soothed my skin after a day in the sun, healed my daughter's rash, and stopped spider bites from hurting. The way it makes your skin feel so soothed and calm is amazing. Thanks so much for making your product! I am pretty impressed.

I have a very large wound from breast cancer that has been a dark pink in color for 5 months. In less than 12 hours after applying the Tallow Balm, the color has changed to be closer to my skin tone. Nothing I have used in the past has had any effect. Also, I was awakened at 1:30 in the morning from a reaction to a bandage I had over a part of the wound that is still open. I removed the bandage, applied the balm and within 10 minutes the pain and itching from the reaction was gone. I have had reactions like that in the past and no natural products would bring relief. Thank you for providing such a natural product that not only feels good on my skin but also is very healing. I am so excited!

We love this balm! It is the only skin product that healed my farmer husband's cracked and chapped hands. He tried everything on the market, but none had the healing power to do more than moisturize. This balm has tallow, which is so much like the oils in our own skin, and it is so healing. Since it is made with locally-sourced grass-fed beef tallow, it contains so many more nutrients. The essential oils add a pleasant fragrance that is non-toxic, which we love. I use the balm on my hands, which are extremely dry from working in water most of the day. Addtionally, I use it on my face because I know it is not rancid. Rancid vegetable oils are not good as they contain high amounts of free radicals, which is damaging inside the body and out. Like most women, I am concerned with wrinkles, and free radicals promote wrinkles, so I use only this balm on my face now to avoid free radical damage. Also, it is the best cure for "flip-flop feet" (dry/cracked heels), and we use it on our youngest son to soothe his occasional diaper rash.

There are too many chemical ingredients added to skin care products you find every day on store shelves. It is extremely important to avoid remedies that involve dangerous chemicals. I have extremely sensitive skin, and it is important that I take extra special care of my skin. I have wasted a lot of time and too much money finding a product that helps. Since I have been using this balm for my chapped hands, elbows, and rough feet, it has penetrated through the layers of dead skin, softening the hard areas. This balm has a proven positive effect on my skin, health, and pocketbook!
—Sandy, Colorado Springs, Colorado
With our extra dry climate in Colorado, this balm has been a lifesaver. I am finding that my skin is much softer and isn't drying out like it used to during the drought seasons. I also started using it on my younger children that have some extremely dry patches on their legs which have almost completely cleared up! As a mother, I prefer for my family's skin products that are organic, free of harsh chemicals, and made of ingredients that would be safe to be consumed internally. It is refreshing to find a product that lives up to our standards. I also enjoy the Pretty Girly fragrance, not so overpowering like many lotions and creams.
