Tallow is truly an all over balm and works wonder anywhere on the body. Our balms and sticks are toxin free, deeply nourishing and good enough to eat so lather yourself in love. Your skin will thank you.

Our products are handmade on the Fierce farm in Somerset, England. Tallow is natural and can harden in cooler temperatures and get softer and more creamy when warmer. If your balm feels hard, rub it in your hands and it will melt into your skin s usual.

As above, when your contour stick is too cold, the tallow will harden. In cooler weather you may have to warm your stick a little to push it up. Try holding it in the palm of your hands for a couple of minutes and the tube should glide easily.

Absolutely! You can use it as a moisture stick on lips, cheeks, knees, elbows, and tops of hands. This little stick should be kept in your bag at all times. The natural contour stick is excellent for children too.

Mica is a natural mineral that forms beautiful and natural shimmering pigments to colour our contour sticks. It is naturally occurring from the mineral silicate. It is a natural and non-toxic mineral.

Absolutely. It is nourishing for babies skin, including nappy rash and eczema prone skin. It also works wonders on dry patches, feeding your child’s skin without any toxic load.

Our Tallow soap is a true wonder bar. Is it gentle and moisturising so wont dry out skin but is soft enough to cleanse your skin and also removes makeup! 

Yes, none of our products are ever tested on animals and why would they need to be as they are 100% natural. We do use beef fat which is an animal by product but we believe that to respect nature and the cycle of life, is to eat and use nose to tail. We use tallow from our sister brand @ossaorganic and our tallow comes from small batches of well cared for and happy cows. The cows are not exposed to antibiotics or hormones and are grass fed. The tallow we use is 100% soil association certified organic.

If you are transitioning from commercial products, deodorants an toothpaste to more natural alternatives, your body will naturally begin to detox. Your toxic load will reduce and in order to detox you may experience outbreaks or other symptoms. Look at your body as a whole and make slow but sure changes. Remember your diet, your sleep and your hormones (balanced or not) will also play a vital role in your toxic load as you make more healthy changes.

Never.

The tallow we use is from our sister brand, Ossa and is from pasture raised organic cattle in Bedfordshire. It is 100% natural and isn’t bleached or deodorised but has a clean creamy smell. As with any natural product there are so many factors that affect each batch of balm we make - meaning, although we follow specific recipes and methods every time and strive for consistency, the natural nature of the product will always shift. This can depend on the time of year, the grass the cattle have been grazing, the temperature when it was made, the temperature it is stored at etc. Our tallow has a low odour however it is beef fat so do expect a slight creamy scent. If you are concerned about the smell, our sweet orange, vanilla and luxe range adds a beautiful scent. If you have purchased an unscented balm and the smell is really not for you (people have differing sensitives to smell) then you can safely add a few drops of your favourite skin friendly essential oil (patch test)

Very occasionally there may be some texture variation in our balms  - even within the same batch! This is understandable as we refuse to put anything synthetic in our products. As with any natural product there are so many factors that affect each batch of balm we make - meaning, although we follow specific recipes and strive for consistency, the natural nature of the product will always shift. This can depend on the time of year, the grass the cattle have been grazing, the temperature when it was made, the temperature your balm is stored at etc. It can even happen half way through an unfinished tin in your bathroom! Tallow is a little like a jar of raw honey – depending on where it’s stored or what the weather is doing it can form small fat crystals making it feel more grainy. It doesn’t happen very often and there seems to be no particular reason for it. It mainly occurs when the balm has been through significant temperature change. This is perfectly natural and these little grains will melt into your skin and that beef fat is still doing it nourishing job. To get it back to a smoother consistency you can always carefully re-melt and pour back into the tin

We follow the same specific recipes and methods for all our products and only use 100% natural ingredients which, of course, can change with the seasons. We steep our olive oil whip base with an exact amount of pure ground vanilla pods for 3 weeks but there can be slightly differing results in the strength of smell. Each batch of vanilla bean will naturally be slightly different and can result in a subtle sweet cake like smell to a full vanilla ice cream scnet. Rest assured, however strong the smell, the beautiful natural properties of the vanilla are doing their magical work on your skin. It must also be noted that if you are used to synthetic vanilla scents you will find our vanilla balm is a much more natural, subtle scent. The reason we use only the beans/pods and not vanilla extract is because extract often contain alcohol and other filler ingredients

Mica is the ingredient that gives our contour tins and selfie sticks their beautiful shimmering colours. We always used natural micas that are ethically sourced and eco-friendly. Micas are naturally occurring rock minerals mixed with iron oxide to create beautiful metallic colour. It is used the world over in skincare and make up products but it is important that it is sourced carefully and we always ensure our suppliers have ‘no child slave labour statements’.

Many mica colours have the addition of titanium dioxide to create a variety of different colours. It is a naturally occurring mineral with a whitening and reflective effect and is used in most makeup brands across the world and many natural sun creams. It appears on the ingredients label as CI 77891. Our products that include this ingredient are; Rose tint contour & stick, Pearl contour & shimmer stick, Mocha contour, true pink contour and dew contour.

All our products have Cosmetic Product Safety Reports which rigorously test our recipes for safety and ensure the percentages of the ingredients we use a safe for all.

If you are looking for colour without titanium dioxide we have our beautiful Rose tint nourish balm, bronze contour & sticks and Rhiannon contour that don’t contain titanium dioxide

The tallow we use is from our sister brand, Ossa and is from pasture raised organic cattle in Bedfordshire. It is 100% natural and isn’t bleached or deodorised. This is fat for the food chain so is of the highest quality and is the ONLY fat we use in our products. Our organic farm in Bedfordshire is certified organic and has to ensure they are tested by the Soil Association to retain official organic status. All meat & tallow produced by the farm has a Safety data sheet to provide information about the traceability of the animals and that they are fit for the food chain. Each batch of product we make is linked to the batch of fat it was made from so there is 100% traceability on all our products

If you have a sensitivity to essential oils or are just cutting them out of your skincare routine we have a range of products to suite you. Try our unscented nourish balm or our Olive oil and tallow whip which is infused with organic vanilla bean for a beautiful scent without the essential oils. We also have our new Baby Balm which is our nourish balm infused with organic camomile and calendula flower. It has a floral scent.

In the winter
months, the organic rosehip oil that we purchase is always darker red in
colour, it’s a seasonal variation and will usually be lighter again come
spring. There is no colour transference onto your skin and it’s the same
luxurious oil with the same beautiful properties. It can sometimes make the
balm feel slightly grainier in the colder months – this is just the fat
particles setting at different temperatures. Just warm the balm between your
fingers and the little fatty beads will soon melt in.  See also ‘The texture of my
tallow balm is a little different form my last order. Why is this?’
