    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.


    The ingredients in all other face serums are either chemically synthesized or chemically refined to the point that they are no longer in their whole-food matrix and beneficial to the skin. These chemical processes can also leave toxic residues in the product that aren't even listed in the ingredients. Our face serums contain many of the same ingredients of much more expensive products but in their naturally occurring, whole-food form. Like our Tallow Balm, this whole-food face serum can be applied even on the eyelids, not limited to around the eyes like with chemical products.

    Green Pasture® Oils (Fermented Cod Liver Oil, Fermented Skate Liver Oil, Concentrated Butter Oil). 
    Tallow from 100% grass-fed cows. 
    Therapeutic-grade essential oils.

    Our face serums are very moisturizing, so they can actually replace our Tallow Balm on your face and neck, but feel free to experiment. You can always apply Tallow Balm as well afterwards if you feel like your skin needs a little extra help.


    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.)


    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

  • I'm hooked!
    After purchasing a sample of the totally unscented tallow balm, I am completely hooked. I have been battling a nasty case of perioral dermatitis for the past 3 1/2 years. I've tried medications, topicals, and so many different types of moisturizers and serums to try and find something that didn't aggravate the rash, and had found nothing that worked. I bought this to try, with low expectations since nothing else had worked. After a week, no breakout. A month, no breakout. I have not had one flare up since switching to this and I am so grateful that I've found something that finally works to hydrate my skin without irritation.

  • Best lip balm!
    This lip balm is amazing! Healed my dry lips in a week, applying twice a day. Smells great too!

  • Wonderful Soap
    My kiddos have extremely sensitive skin. The tallow is amazing, and so I thought let's try the soap! After getting my sample and loving it, I will definitely be getting more. It helps keep their skin hydrated and soft and even makes my daughter's hair nice and shiny!

  • Atopic dermatitis life saver
    My teen daughter has atopic dermatitis from carba mix, which is pretty much in everything. She gets large patches of it on her cheeks, and this tallow balm is the FIRST thing that we have tried that soothes the burning, itchy, and red skin after a flare up. And we have tried most everything on the market and prescription. So freaking happy, I stumbled across this on one of my herbal searches for another home remedy.

  • Unbelievable!
    I'm in construction and I have extremely dry hands and elbows. Feel like sandpaper according to my wife. I have tried a ton of different brands of skin moisturizer. None really helped at all. Plus all of them make my eyes water badly. I used "VT" and after a week of putting on my face for the first time in my life did not get watery eyes. I can even apply to my eyelids no problem. But the best thing is "VT" has actually healed my hands and elbows. Very smooth and cracking is gone! People sometimes would see my dry hands and say how dry they looked. Not anymore! Thank you "VT"!

  • Great for New Nursing Mothers
    Within 5 minutes of massaging this into my shoulders, I felt the essential oils really working and penetrating! I have a 9 month old and frequently having sore/aching shoulder and neck muscles from caring a hefty baby, and nursing on the go. This is my new go-to for when the aches are getting a little too achey, and will also be one of my gifts for new moms. I know that it is something clean and healing, and a gift that they won't know that they need but will totally appreciate.

  • Psoriasis is fading with product!
    I have had guttate psoriasis since I was 19. In 30 now. Eventually I started to develop spots on my forehead and scalp. My eyebrows and sometimes eyes when I'm dealing with a flare up. The forehead spots can be very dry and hard to treat in the winter. I just bought the sample of this and just bought the 2 oz after trying it. I can't even tell how amazing it made my skin feel! The texture of my trouble spot on my forehead is fading and not as inflamed. It's working wonders!! It means so much to be to have a product that actually works and has no chemicals! Highly suggest trying if you have psoriasis.

  • Saved my face
    I had been getting extremely dry, flaking and peeling skin around my mouth and chin area which wasn't helped by anything I'd been putting on it. I was embarrassed to see people because my chin area always looked like it was peeling off! I found the Epic Glow sample I'd bought in a sample pack a few months prior and gave it a shot. Within a day, my flakey, dry, peeling skin looked completely fine! Soft and no more flaking or peeling. I used V.T balms years ago and forgot how incredible they were. When nothing else works, try this product. It's honestly magic in a cute little glass tub.

  • Great quality, remarkably good value, whole-family solution
    Our whole family loves using Vintage Traditions products. The tallow base they offer in all their products is an incredible ingredient, they clearly take great care and effort to produce something of exceptional quality. Good old fashion solutions to health and wellness are always the best. The balm is the only thing we've found for dad and 1yo's eczema.The soap is in our shower. We're experimenting with the specialized balms, the sample sizes are perfect.

  • Amazing
    Ordered the sample size for my daughter to try. It cleared up her problematic acne so quickly, I ordered a larger size before she even ran out of the tiny jar. Nothing else has helped her acne…no expensive creams or medicine. This stuff is amazing!
