TALLOW BALM SKIN CARE
Whole-body natural skin care for face, lips, hands, feet, and body. The purest, most natural ingredients of any skincare product (see organic Product FAQ). For healthy skin. For great-looking skin. For all manner of skin conditions. Our Tallow Balm is soft, spreadable, and easy to use. It is paleo-friendly skin care.
This is how people cared for their skin before chemicals. This is "The Whole Food of Skin Care". There is nothing else like it on the market. In fact, we invented the term, "Tallow Balm". People also call it tallow cream, tallow salve, and tallow lotion. Our Tallow Balm has only whole-food ingredients, all selected from the finest sources to ensure its superior therapeutic quality. It is chemical-free and GMO-free with nothing unnatural. Don't put anything on your body that you wouldn't put in your body! If other skincare products have failed you, you owe it to yourself to try Vintage Tradition!
Simply rub in well. Keep tightly capped and at room temperature. A little goes a long way, so a jar lasts an incredibly long time. It does not result in a greasy look or feel because it is readily absorbed as nourishment. (continued...)

(...continued) Our Tallow Balm has only three whole-food ingredients, all selected from the finest sources to ensure its superior therapeutic quality. It is chemical-free and GMO-free with nothing unnatural.

*In the case of Tallow Balm with Green Pasture® Oils, the olive oil is replaced with Fermented Cod Liver Oil, Fermented Skate Liver Oil, and Concentrated Butter Oil, making these balms the only all-animal-oil skin care and muscle and joint products available anywhere.
During production, our balm does not come into contact with plastic, aluminum, or non-stick surfaces. Our Tallow Balms are handcrafted in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA. We offer a guarantee on our Tallow Balm.
DEODORANT TALLOW BALM
Our natural Deodorant Tallow Balm has the exact same whole-food ingredients as our Tallow Balm but with carefully chosen essential oils to make it an even better natural deodorant. It is a paleo-friendly deodorant.
The longer you use it, the better it works. It has a cumulative effect! Rub in well. A little goes a long way, so a jar lasts an incredibly long time. It is readily absorbed and doesn't just sit on top of the skin, so one application can last more than just a day! Unlike with other deodorant formulations, any left on your hands can be applied anywhere. Just rub your hands together, and nothing goes to waste!
Our natural Deodorant Tallow Balm has only three whole-food ingredients, all selected from the finest sources to ensure its superior therapeutic quality, with no chemicals, no GMO's, and nothing unnatural. It is an aluminum-free deodorant.
One of the naturally occurring oils in tallow, palmitoleic acid, has natural antimicrobial properties, which helps fight odor-causing bacteria, and the added essential oils increase the protection against odor.
TALLOW LIP BALM
Our Tallow Lip Balm has the exact same whole-food ingredients as our Tallow Balm.
Use on lips or anywhere! Convenient for on-the-go use, especially as a soothing natural lip balm for dry, chapped, and cracked lips, providing ultimate moisturizing.
A great value! More than 3 times the amount of balm of regular plastic tubes*, fewer applications needed, and much less needed per application, so one tube lasts an incredibly long time!
Environmentally friendly, sturdy paperboard tube made from recycled paper with virgin-paper inner lining (so Tallow Balm doesn't come into contact with recycled paper).
*(Plastic, petrochemical tubes are not good for the environment or for your lips and skin, especially when hot balm has been poured into them.)
We weren't able to find another soap that had ingredients that were up to our standards, so we decided to make one ourselves out of the exact same ingredients that we use for our Tallow Balms. Stop buying wasteful (and toxic) plastic pump bottles and discover the beauty of real soap!
"Balm" is in the name of our amazing bar soaps because they actually soothe and nourish your skin instead of drying it out like other soaps that strip the skin of beneficial oils.
Welcome to Vintage Tradition
Little did we know that a trip to a farm in Mexico would lead us to embark on another journey, one to discover a practical solution to the modern skin care dilemma, a solution consistent with the true principles of nutrition and health. This journey led to the discovery of what people used for skin care before the introduction of man-made chemicals as well as the science behind the traditional wisdom.
Due to the lack of any product on the market that fit the ideal for healthy and effective skin care, we were prompted to create a formula that we could use and share with others, a simple recipe for traditional nourishing and healing skin care.
Our Happy Customers
Best Sunburn Relief & Remedy
I love using Pretty Girly everyday. It evens out my complexion and keeps my skin feeling soft and bright. This tallow balm was AMAZING when my hubby fell asleep in the sun and woke up terribly burnt. While aloe only helped in the short term, this tallow balm helped bring calm to the area and heal him super fast. It wasn't fun to apply on his hairy legs but he was shocked at how much it helped and how far superior it was to everything else he tried.
Great for my Psoriasis!
This Tallow Balm has been so hydrating and healing for my psoriasis! First time I used it I saw a difference literally overnight in the appearance of my flare ups. Redness, flakiness, and itching diminishing significantly and has continued to do each time I use it. Been suffering with constant flare ups for the past year using countless OTC products and prescription steroids and this has by far been the best things to make a lasting difference! [see photo]
Truly a miracle
My husband had a rash on his face for a couple of years that was caused by wearing masks at work during Covid. His dermatologist had him use several creams, steroids, a couple of courses of antibiotics, and nothing helped. I got him this balm to try and in just THREE days his face is cleared and completely healed. We’re so grateful for this product!
Bought one, then bought three more
This tallow soap keeps my skin soft; I use it on my entire body and face. I have short hair for a woman, and even use it on my hair a couple times a week. It's not like I have replaced shampoo with it but it keeps my hair texture manageable and is a great addition to my routine. No rules for this soap.
I'll start with saying that I don't usually write reviews but I rely on them when shopping for a new product. Yet, this balm has impressed me so much that here I am, writing this. I was skeptical and tried healing my gut while using Cerve's line to help with the acne rosacea that came on after I was pregnant a few years ago. Nothing seemed to touch it. So, I figured I had nothing to lose and bought multiple samples. I'm three days into using it and I think the photos can speak for themselves. Texture is down significantly! Looking forward to seeing what regular use will bring. The smell in this mix in particular is a little funky (and makes my dog come sit next to me like I have a treat haha) but it's not horrible. Overall super glad I took a chance on this! [see photo]
Great product and company
My husband is a bilateral amputee and uses the tallow for his residual limbs that go into his prosthetic liners. It has definitely helped with keeping his skin supple and breakdowns of skin at a minimum. Very good customer service, when I order it, it arrives quickly! Thanks for a great product!
The Best Soap Ever
I didn't realize that washing with a genuinely clean (free from known endocrine disrupters, harsh chemicals, fragrances, carcinogens, seed oils, etc.) soap could ever be a not-drying experience. Every clean soap I have ever tried before dried my skin out. It always looked like a cracked, dry desert. I switched to Vintage Tradition 100% grass-fed beef tallow soap about three weeks ago & noticed immediate improvements. My skin feels softer & looks noticeably less dry---no longer patchy & flaky. It no longer feels stressed out/sensitive & tight from being super dry. I don't think my skin has ever felt this happy & normal before in my entire life. Thank You, Vintage Tradition, for saving my skin---I am never going back to anything else! Grass-fed beef tallow soap for life! [see photo]
Can't live without it!!!!
I have been using this product for 6 years. I live in Montana with harsh winters and a dry climate. I use it everyday on my hands and face. It absorbs so great, making my skin feel amazing. I often generously put it on my face before a day out skiing. It totally protects my skin. I love that it is all natural. I have told so many people about tallow balm. Actually today , I was telling two coworkers about it. Tallow Balm is the best skin care product available.
Really amazing product
I get chilblains really bad from working outside in the cold and this has completely cleared up all of my skin issues. Highly recommended to anyone with similar issues.
Gentle but effective cleanser for dry, sensitive skin
I have long wanted to switch to solid soaps for body care, but having extremely dry and sensitive skin has meant even the most 'gentle' bar soaps absolutely wreck my skin barrier. After finding success with a charcoal-based bar, I was curious to try this after the Tallow Balm became my sole moisturizer and finally fixed some persistent perioral dermatitis. The bar suds up in a satisfying way and leaves me feeling super clean but without any harshness or stripping of my skin. I have even been able to cut down the amount of body moisturizer I have to use after every shower which is really a mark of how great this is. I love that it's cost effective, makes traveling easier, and there is almost no waste - it comes in a recyclable cardboard box. A+!
