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.)
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
Before finding Vintage Tradition, my nighttime skin care routine took about an hour each night. I suffer with Rosacea, and every night after removing my make-up and applying rose water, I would sit in front of the fan for my skin to calm down and burning to reside. For years I have used Neutrogena makeup wipe remover and a plain Dove white bar with no fragrance. This was what my skin could tolerate. I was given Vintage Tradition to try and was told to take a before picture and an after picture in a couple of weeks and I should see a difference. These are my results after only 3 applications!! ZERO burning and ZERO flare ups! I have been using it for 5 weeks now and in that time have had no skin irritation and my skin is so soft. I have been sharing this with everyone I come into contact with. I can't say enough good things about this product and will be a customer for life!!
I am in my second week of using Epic Glow and I am so pleased with how it has helped my appearance. Whether it's my health, age (late 40s), the dry climate or all three, my face has been looking very old and worn in the last 12-18 months. I found Vintage Traditions after doing some research on using tallow on the skin and thought I would try some for myself after buying two as a gift for other people. The first week I used it, my skin just sucks it up. "A little dab will do ya" did not apply, as I found myself lathering it on again and again, and spreading to my neck, as well. After 7 days, my skin was retaining the moisture day to day, so I was able to use what is closer to the recommended application. My acne scaring, crow's feet, and laugh lines are definitely less noticeable, but I am most happy with just the "overall" look of my face. I feel like I actually look my age - not ten years older. The fresh, citrusy smell is perfect. Not too strong, not too faint. (My dog must still smell the tallow though, because she follows me around for about 30 minutes until the smell dissipates. Ha!) Great product!
Miracle for baby
Twice my son has been on the verge of bleeding from diaper rash. The second time the pediatrician diagnosed it as a yeast infection and I was leery of using anything but the cream she prescribed. It kept getting worse and the RX cream wasn't doing anything so I finally turned to the product that had saved us before- this tallow balm! The next morning when I changed his diaper I was amazed at how much better it was. Yeast is no joke and it still took a few days to completely clear, but this helped right away and after consistent use we are still rash free. If you have a baby or need a baby gift for someone, this balm is a game changer. I can't wait to try the lavender one for myself!
Has changed my life I have eczema I've always dealt with it on my face. Nothing the dermatologist has ever given me has helped it's actually done the opposite but this has changed my skin drastically. My skin Stays moisturized for longer with less Irritation, and flakiness and my skin isn't as thin And fragile as before, also has helped with the texture of my skin.
Healed my Eczema in 1 week
I had heard of tallow through a friend who used it to heal her baby's eczema, but as a vegan I didn't think it was the right product for me. About a month ago my flairs started to get really bad and I was at a breaking point. The first day using the tallow my eczema seemed more red, but I continued use after reading this could be normal. After 4 days I was amazed. My eyelids were not swollen, and the skin was almost back to normal. I could cry. I have shared this product with family members as well- it feels like a miracle.
Eczema Life Saver
I have used every cream/steroid under the sun for my eczema. Vintage Tradition (Unscented) has been the only thing that has cleared my eczema! I haven't used steroids for over two years and this tallow balm has kept my skin nice and hydrated.
Deodorant for Women
I can't believe how amazing this is! Best. Deodorant. Ever.
Just stocked up again. I love using Epic Glow AND the quality of care given by the people providing it. I enjoyed using Almost Unscented for years and finally took the plunge on Epic Glow when a reviewer said it DIDN'T smell fishy. It doesn't! Thanks a million for your honest products.
I use this as my hair product. I was using coconut oil to try and help with dry frizzy hair. Which always kept it greasy which I hated. It's taken trial and error for how much I needed to use of the balm, but there is NO greasiness! And it smells so good!
I never review but I had to this time
I have problems with like, lip eczema, particularly in the corners of my mouth, and just dry chapped lips in general. Year round. I put this on, and 15 mins later, I could feel and see a huge difference. For the first time in weeks, my lips don't burn or hurt when I smile. It actually soaked into my lips, and hydrated them, to the point where a lot of the lines smoothed out. Most balms just sit on top of my lips and do nothing, or if they do soak in it takes hours. 30 mins after I put it on, I ate, and I didn't need to reapply. I actually have some hope for the first time in awhile. I develop random allergies to my lip balm. I'm currently allergic to every major brand on the market. I have to buy like 6 lip balms at a time and constantly swap them out to try and extend the mileage I get out of them. I read the ingredients on every balm I buy, and one thing I've noticed is that even organic unflavored balms have at least 5 ingredients and most of the time they have a chemical sounding name and what that name means beside it in parenthesis. This balm has TWO ingredients, no chemical names, and I would feel safe cooking my eggs in it.
