    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.)


    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.

  • Best Lip Balm EVER!!!
    Seriously this company is one of a kind. I've been using the products for over a month and just nothing shy of amazing on all fronts. I use this lip balm in the morning and once at night and my lips haven't been more moisturized throughout the day. Zero chapped lips, just amazing.

  • Seborrheic dermatitis
    I have Seborrheic dermatitis (also known as seb-derm) which includes dry skin, flaking skin, red patches of skin, all of which has seriously affected my self confidence. Eventually, I found a work around which included using an acidic mixture on my face (to help my skin absorb whatever comes next), and then applying a specific lotion. With this tallow balm, I have no need of any of that. I have no need to desecrate my skin so that the lotion applied will become more bioavailable. This tallow balm is the only product I use on my face. It is extremely bioavailable. The glow is outstanding. I feel like I'm 10 years younger. Not to mention that its completely natural, with a great smell as well!

  • Excellent in Every Way
    This is a fantastic product that far exceeded my expectations. I have never used tallow balm before, but after getting a lingering allergic reaction to wearing disposable facemasks over the last year, and trying every medication known to mankind to no effect, I figured I would give it a shot. To my utter amazement, this tallow balm FIXED IT. I have no idea how it worked, or why, but after 12+ months of suffering from highly irritated skin, this pleasant smelling tallow balm seems to have done the trick! 5/5 stars.

  • Eczema Miracle!
    I've tried so many creams and ointments on my 1-yr-old daughter's eczema. Some helped a little, but nothing worked amazingly until this! Literally worked miracles! This picture was a three days' difference applying 2-3x/day. I'm seriously amazed! Love the scent too. [see photo]

  • I should have taken before and after photos
    I have psoriasis over 75% of my body. I was diagnosed 7 years ago at age 38. I always had beautiful skin before this. It came out of nowhere shortly after I had essure birth control placed. No doctor would ever believe me and refused to remove said birth control. I took a 14 day trip to Maui to spend my days on the salt water beach with the sand to exfoliate my skin and heal. It worked! However, on my flight home I caught strep throat and ended up 90% covered in psoriasis. Nothing has worked since. This tallow balm was my last purchase before I completely gave up on healing. Within 2 days of getting the samples, I was healing for the first time since 2019. I am blown away. I've spent so much money on lotions, balms, uv lamps, doctors appts etc and nothing worked. I'd resigned that I'd have to move to Hawaii to get any relief. However, after trying this balm, I'm convinced I will heal. My skin and nails are so healthy after just a week, I can't imagine my life without this. Any psoriasis sufferers, please give it a try! It's amazing. I will update with photos soon.

  • No More Itching!!!
    First I would like to say that I am someone with very sensitive reactive skin so there is always an experiment going on to find products that keep me comfortable. I am very impressed with this soap and I have even been washing my hair with it and I like that as well. I love the creaminess of the lather and that there is no feeling of residue on skin or hair. I am very happy to have found this company and I am using some of their other products to great satisfaction as well.

  • Surprise
    I decided to give this sample a try because, why not. Surprise! It has worked great! Not only has it held up for smell, it did for sweat too. I was able to go about ny day without the worry of smelling or sweating. It does not leave any markings on your clothes. I was also happy to see I didn’t break into a rash. Normally with a more natural deodorant- it can leave a rash under my arms. Will be purchasing more

  • Psoriasis
    My husband was gifted some Almost Unscented Tallow Balm for me to try by the amazing creators of this product. I am super picky about things I put on my skin due to my psoriasis and sensitive skin. After reading the information sheet provided and the ingredients list, I did a test on some dry patches and couldn't have been happier. It absorbed nicely and didn't feel greasy at all. My skin instantly felt softer and did not break me out. The scent was very subtle and pleasant. A little goes a long way! I decided to put some on my face due to a psoriasis flair up and it helped so much with the flaky burning skin. I was even able to wear makeup today! Thank you all again for gifting your plumber this lol.

  • Great Product!
    I love this product so much! I've been hesitant to try tallow balm for my eczema for years now just because of the price, but once nothing was working for my 18 month old son, I decided we'd give it a go. It improved patches that he'd had for over month after 2 uses, and they were completely gone in a week. My own stubborn patches are instantly soothed, no itch or irritation, and it doesn't sting when you apply it like all other eczema products do for me, I love it. You need so little when you apply this jar will last forever, even with both of our outbreaks, AND the jar is a reusable glass jar??? I really wonder if this product could get better. I'm so happy we've found something that works so well for both of us! No more eczema-creams-that-never-worked graveyard. One product that does it all!
