    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.

  • Really liking this scent
    I have been struggling this winter season with DRY lips. I've tried a few products that used to work, but they weren't cutting it. I was always uncomfortable and would be thinking about my lips non-stop because they were dry and distracting. Thought I'd try this and I'm very pleased with not only the quality and consistency, but also this scent. Very light and not overwhelming. This balm actually works GREAT on my lips! Leaves them soft, moisturized and I don't have to reapply the balm a ton like other products.

  • Rosacea
    I'm on my sixth day of using the Epic Glow balm, and my face has cleared to a level I wouldn't have thought possible in such a short time. I didn't even know I had rosacea when I bought it. I was just told Tallow Balm was an incredible face care product with no undesirable chemicals. At the time I bought it, I thought what I had was acne and was hoping for improvement with that. Now that I know it's rosacea, I'm even more thrilled that I purchased your tallow balm. I wish I had taken "before" photos but didn't think to do that. And now, even after only six days of use, it's working so well there's not much rash or bumps to see. Put me down as a Vintage Tradition customer for life. I've never had a product work as stated and in so little time. Thank you, thank you. I've gone from being very upset by my diagnosis to having hope because of your Tallow Balm. Please never stop making it!!!

  • Tallow balm soap
    I'm in love with this soap. I've been looking for a natural soap for my face and body that doesn't strip the natural oils and dry my skin out. This is it! It has become my favorite soap. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean. Then I come in with the lavender tallow balm. My adult acne is clearing up and I had someone comment about how my skin is "glowing." I also bought several samples and loved each one! Eek! I can't decide which ones to get next! I'm using the lavender balm on the soles of my feet at night and I swear I am sleeping better. Thank you! I will definitely be buying more!

  • 10/10 will always use
    Best bar soap I've ever had. Every soap makes my skin dry out. And this is the first soap I've used that doesn't do that. Totally love it. Will forever use it.

  • Best Bar Soap
    I was in the market for a new soap as I really wanted to get away from chemical soap. I had tried a tallow soap from another company before but it really dried out my skin. I had tried my husbands sample of the regular tallow soap and loved it. It did not dry out my skin at all. I decided to purchase this one to use and I am amazed at how well it lathers and cleans without drying your skin. It also makes an excellent shave soap. Great slip and a close shave with no cuts. I don't even have to use any kind of lotion after bathing or shaving. Amazing product and will continue to use.

  • Hands down best lip balm
    I was in need of a new lip balm as my lips will get dry in the winter and then I start to pick at them. After a recent picking episode I applied this lip balm and after a couple applications my lips were completely healed. Not so with other chemical based lip balms. The vanilla scent is great too. I will continue to purchase. I would like to try the other scents as well.

  • For me - Best deodorant Ever
    Started using the tallow balm many years ago. Used a fair amount. Every day. The last few years I noticed it takes just a pinch. Still Works great. All day. It does take a year or two, waiting the skin to release all the toxics and letting in the healthy balm, to do its healing stuff. Since I started Vintage, I've used the Ammonia based deodorant, it really irritates my skin now. The balm calms it right down. Never got a bad jar. Good quality control. It's the only deodorant I will use.

  • A shampoo hidden gem!
    I totally love the tallow soap for washing my hair. Not only do I get compliments but my less greasy and "fuller" hair lasts longer (= I've been able to increase from three days to four days between washings) than any liquid or bar soap I've tried. I'm a 100% satisfied fan of Vintage Tradition tallow balm soap! In addition, the company processed my order very quickly and with excellent customer service. I also love that even their wrapping is without plastic!!

  • Love it!
    It is great! My fiancé has struggled with dry scalp and has tried literally everything. This is the only non-medicated soap he has used that has worked better. I use a separate bar for my face, and I absolutely love it!

  • Amazing for Eczema!
    My daughter has had severe Eczema since she was a child. We have used many creams and potions and it seems nothing has worked. After trying Vintage Tradition Totally Unscented her skin started to clear up instantly and the itching was less as well. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for something to help with this difficult skin problem.
