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) Cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil from California estate-grown heirloom Mission olives, farmed the centuries-old way without pesticides or chemical fertilizers, pressed right at the orchard, 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!

Love love this stuff..I use it at work as I'm constantly washing my hands..it is keeping my hands supple and moisturized..with the oils in it, it adds a "calming" effect when applied..I'm always informing people of what it is when asked..hope fully sending Vintage Tradition new customers. I will continue to order this product.

I was a little concerned that the smell might put me off using tallow but I find I get used to it really fast and the essential oils do help cover up that tallow smell. It works really well and my skin feels great. It has also helped me clear up some skin problems on my husband's back. My only issue is that in winter it takes some work to get the tallow soft enough to apply. I wish they'd use some of the product whipping techniques that 'professional' skin care companies use to make a softer more spreadable product. Still the Vintage stuff works better than the so called pro stuff and I do like to know that everything my skin absorbs is good for me, especially great is the vitamins A,D,E, and K combo.

I heard about this on Wise Traditions podcast and loved the story of how this was developed. I've bought two different fragrances and both are fantastic for dry skin. I use them on my body and on my face. It absorbs quickly and is not greasy at all. I really appreciate natural products with a few ingredients that are natural. I'm hooked.

I have extremely dry, sensitive skin prone to eczema. Just one night of use healed my chapped lips, dry cuticles and some scaly patches on my knee; while it hasn't fully rectified the situation with my feet (I have a hereditary condition called plantar hyperkeratosis, which is chronic, and can only be managed), it's soothed cracks and dry skin and has made my feet overall less dry, painful and hideous-looking. Love this product, it will be a staple throughout the Colorado winter. Highly recommend.

So I was reading about tallow in a medical book published in 1889, and decided to try this stuff. Vintage Tradition appealed to me. I ordered the 2oz Sensible Tallow Balm, which was delivered in just a few days. I love tallow! Now it's all I use, everyday. I'm 49 years old and my skin feels baby soft, looks healthy, I now use very little makeup, and the compliments are awesome! Thank you VT! Can't wait to try your other tallow balms.
