    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.
    Tallow — from 100% grass-fed cows
    Olive oil* — certified organic, extra virgin, and cold-pressed
    Essential oils — therapeutic grade
    That's it!     Read more.

    *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.


    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.


    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.)

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.

  • The best nourishment for skin!
    Rather than just sitting on top of the skin, tallow feeds the skin and is absorbed by it, nourishing it from within. The best treatment for eczema I have ever used, helps avoid using steroid creams, which cause damage over time. I have used it on babies, kids, teens, adults! It helps maintain youthfulness of the skin, elasticity, and to avoid that crepey look on hands and neck. I even love it for around the delicate eye area (don't use the peppermint one around eyes!). I recommend for everyone. Love this stuff so much!

  • Baby eczema help
    I bought this as a gift for a friend whose sweet baby girl suffers from terrible eczema. Within a week of daily use, she's getting compliments on her daughter's soft, creamy skin! Mom was in tears telling me how much she loves it.

  • My favorite scent
    Sensible is by far my favorite scent. It’s subtle and absolutely lovely. I’ve tried a few different scents and love them all. This is currently the only moisturizer I use for anything. It’s replaced my lip balms, face lotions, oils, everything. I keep 3-4 containers around the house so they are readily available. I’m also a massage therapist and it works great as a massage medium without leaving the client feeling greasy. It absorbs well and gives both slip and grip. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed!

  • Windswept = Sunburn SAVIOR
    This is my new holy grail. I had a HORRIBLE blister-inducing sunburn that I needed to heal, fast! I found this referenced on a blog somewhere and was desperate, so I bought the "Windswept" scent on a whim. The windswept balm helped heal my burn SO fast, better than any of the over-the-counter remedies. I've used it on chapped lips and as a face moisturizer now. I'm obsessed and will 100% reorder when I am out (a little goes a long way and it LASTS). A couple other reviewers mentioned they didn't like the Windswept smell, but I think it smells nice and like an expensive spa!

  • Threw out my entire skin care collection
    My bathroom counter was littered with half-used bottles of this crème and that potion. They are no longer! Thanks to Vintage Tradition, I've reclaimed my counter. One product outworks any and all other products I've used on my face. As a 25-year-old in the TikTok era, you can imagine I had quite the collection of products peddled by influencers. I am so thankful to have found a product (1) that does not contain chemicals proven to mess with human hormones / cause cancer / affect fertility. (2) IT FREAKING WORKS, on everything for every possible application from a makeup primer to an overnight face mask. I even use it to take makeup off! (3) I cannot tell you the relief I feel knowing I have found a product I can purchase for my young sisters - stop them from using harmful products and get them set up with their Vintage Tradition products that will maintain their skin and their health throughout our lives. I am a for-life customer. And I'm converting everyone around me too!

  • A little bit goes a long way
    This is the only product that has given me consistent and great results. I apply this each morning after a shower and have healthy looking skin throughout the entire day. Unlike other products, you only need a small amount to hydrate and heal the dry skin and it can be used everywhere from your face to your feet. Consistent use has shown great skin improvement and I will be purchasing more. I have also used this after a day in the sun getting burnt. Applying before bed and again in the morning helped prevent the skin from peeling.


  • The best!
    This lip balm is amazing. It has actually improved my lips so much that I rarely need it now. I still use it daily. The citrus smell is really nice and mild and tastes very natural. I use this brand tallow for my skin care, it’s all amazing, smooth, silky, absorbs completely. Thank you Vintage Tradition!!

  • Okay can I just say that this is the best customer service I have ever experienced?! Not only are you so quick to respond, you are incredibly accommodating, informative, and helpful! Pardon me for being so surprised but this is such a refreshing and nice interaction when customer service can be so complicated and frustrating on both ends sometimes.


  • Epic Glow
    I have been a happy user of Vintage Tradition products for a few years. I recently developed strange, scaly patches on my face and upper lip. It seemed like it might be psoriasis. I am experienced with essential oils and herbal healing, but nothing in my kit seemed to help. In desperation, I made an appointment with the dermatologist, but it was 3 weeks away. Meanwhile, I decided to apply Epic Glow. A miracle! All patches completely gone in 2 days, dermatologist appointment cancelled. Now using Epic Glow as might night treatment and my skin has never looked better! Thank you Vintage Tradition !

  • amazing
    I love this whole line of products. The mild manly scent is nice and clean and not overwhelming. What I love about this line is that they are primarily tallow so they really absorb completely and leave my hands soft. I have tried other products that include beeswax and jojoba in their formula and I find they sit on the skin rather than absorb. Treat yourself and heal your persistently dry skin!
