Our balm is chemical-free and GMO-free with nothing unnatural and has only three whole-food ingredients, all selected from the finest sources to insure its superior therapeutic quality:
1) Tallow from 100% grass-fed cows that are happy, healthy, and humanely raised without cruel feed lots and cruel slaughterhouses and without pesticides, drugs, hormones, or chemicals of any kind.
2) First cold-pressed extra virgin organic olive oil from a family orchard in the valley of Sparta, Greece; they cultivate; they harvest; they press; they export; nobody else interferes, eliminating any chance of contamination with other oils.
3) The most pure and therapeutic essential oils available, produced to the highest standards in the industry, steam-distilled from plants grown at the highest standards and not adulterated, extended, synthesized, or distilled using chemicals or high temperatures and pressure; expertly blended and specifically selected because of their long-standing tradition of promoting optimal skin health.
This is how people cared for their skin before chemicals. This is the whole food of skin care. Don't put anything on your body that you wouldn't put in your body! There is nothing else like it on the market. If other skin care products have failed you, you owe it to yourself to try Vintage Tradition!
Our balms are handcrafted in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA.
During production, our balm does not come into contact with plastic, aluminum, or non-stick surfaces.

I have had eczema on the palms of my hands for over a year. I've tried many things. Within a couple days of applying the Almost Unsented I could tell it was working. Within 2 weeks it was so much better. Its been about 4 weeks and its hardly noticeable. It just keeps getting better. I started by applying the balm about 4 or 5 times a day because my hands really needed it. Now I apply 2 to 3 times a day. I'm needing less and less. I would recommend giving it a try.

We love tallow balm so much! Use to to help sunburns and any type of skin irritation. It works so well! I am not totally in love with the almost Unscented scent but we will use it no matter what!!

Vintage Tradition is the only moisturizer I have tried that doesn't irritate my eyes, and over my 62 years, I've tried everything.

After 20 years of chronic hives, eczema, and dermatitis, I decided to invest tremendous time and effort in addressing the real gut and liver issues behind these (instead of suppressing with oral steroids). Working with a wonderful chiropractor has helped immensely as we've gradually uncovered food sensitivities and begun a major healing process in the gut and liver. In the meantime, the daily eczema remains--with many sleepless nights of itching skin that is so very dry, scaly, flaky, and overall depleted of nutrients. Plant-based oils and balms did very little to really return the moisture to the areas that so desperately needed it. After reading about the effects of tallow balm for eczema, I ordered VT's Almost Unscented, and I'm so happy with the results! 1-2 daily applications, particularly following bathing, have returned deep moisturization and vibrance to my skin within one week of use. It also works well to soothe and calm down itching for a brief time--I wouldn't say it "stops" the itch altogether--but the way it moisturizes so deeply certainly helps reduce itching and promote real healing. I will be ordering this regularly for myself and my family!

We have been using the Tallow balm for approximately one year, to help relieve the itching dry patches from psoriasis. It was our family physician Dr. Patricia Laurel who recommended this product to us. Yes, it helps, thank you for making this product.

I'm 61, have been using this balm for several years, and am grateful to have finally discovered it.
I've just gotten another jar. (I use the large size to refill my small jars (which I have in each room).)
VT, thank you making this wonderful balm! (Thank you too for using glass jars!)

I have used Vintage Traditions for several years now and I really like it. It's easy and keeps my skin hydrated with simple ingredients. I'm 65 and I'm not trying to look like I'm 25 or even 40, but this keeps the years from showing more than they should!
