The second picture is a happy customer who had been using the tallow for 5 weeks and noticed a tightening in her neck! The third picture is a customer who used our tallow for FOUR days on her stretch marks, Leg Pics: Customer used Citrus Tallow for 3 weeks!, Belly Stretch Mark Pics: Customer used for 6 months- Saw a great reduction in her stretch marks and tightening of her belly button!)
So…Tallow? What is it?***
Tallow is animal oil that has been slowly and carefully kettle rendered from the suet of animals like cows or sheep. Our tallow is slowly kettle-rendered from organically farmed and grass-fed/finished cows. Due to the diet and care of our cows, this gives our tallow an amazing vitamin and fatty acid profile that can only be found in animal oils.
Why have I never heard of this?***
There is nothing new under the sun, and that is true with tallow. Tallow was prized by generations in the past, but as chemical products became more and more popular, tallow was left behind and forgotten. Now, as people are becoming more aware of the side effects of harsh chemicals and man-made products, we find ourselves turning back to what nature had provided all along.
What are the main nutritional BENEFITS?***
• Tallow is easily absorbed by your skin!
• An amazing vitamin profile- An amazing combo of vitamins A, D, E, and K that you can only find in an animal oil. Put them together with our plant oils and you have a match made in heaven.
• The AMAZING fatty acid profile- These fatty acids are found naturally in youthful and glowing skin and tend to decline as we age.
o Palmitic Acid- Protects skin from the environment and smooths.
o Omega 7 (Palmitoleic Acid)- Anti-Microbial.
o CLA- Anti- Calms inflamed skin and kills bacteria.
o Stearic Acid- found in our own oils, this amazing fatty acid brings moisture to the skin, softens, rejuvenates and has anti-inflammatory properties. Helps with collagen and elastin .
o Omega 9 (Oleic Acid)- Awesome carrier to the other oils and helps penetrate these nutrients deep into the skin.***
Essential Oil Benefits:
Nourishes damaged skin.
“Lemon essential oil benefits for skin can include reducing acne, nourishing damaged skin and hydrating skin.”
Cleansing, Antioxidant, Smoothing,Cellulite, Acne.
“Grapefruit contains natural acids that cleanse the skin when used in skincare products. Grapefruit is loaded with vitamin C, which acts as an antioxidant to protect the skin and also is essential to the formation of collagen, a major building block of our skin. Collagen production is key when it comes to keeping skin looking youthful and wrinkle-free.
Pink grapefruit is also rich in beta-carotene, which is amazing at slowing the aging of skin cells and has been known to also improve hyperpigmentation. Skincare experts also love how pink grapefruit contains lycopene, which is known to guard against sun-induced skin damage and mutation as well as inflammation in general. Last but not least, grapefruit naturally contains a breakout-fighting and pore-cleansing ingredient you’ve probably heard of before: salicylic acid, making grapefruit a potential home remedy for acne”
“Grapefruit’s super start antioxidant, vitamin C, has also been shown to prevent harmful changes to DNA caused by free radicals while also preventing carcinogen development.”
“Grapefruit also contains significant levels of anti-inflammatory and skin-cleansing agents, including the enzyme bromelain, which is known to help break down cellulite. So if you’re wondering how to get rid of cellulite, grapefruit just may do the trick.”
“Lime essential oil tones up muscles, tissues, and skin including the respiratory, circulatory, nervous, digestive, and excretory systems. This tonic effect helps to retain youth ... and prevents the appearance of aging symptoms like ... wrinkles, age spots...”
Acne Fighter, Skin Saver
Citrus fruits are known to provide high levels of vitamin C that help protect and heal skin, making oranges one of the best vitamin C foods around. Orange essential oil is also very beneficial for fighting signs of aging like wrinkles and dark spots since it promotes the production of collagen. Because of its antioxidant power, it slows the rate of skin damage experienced from UV light exposure, pollution and toxicity...
Orange oil is effective at fighting bacteria and inflammation on the skin that can lead to acne...Redness, pain and swelling from acne should improve...”
My Personal Testimony:
My name is Britney, and I am the one in the kitchen making beautiful tallow whip for Flying Cow Tallow. Here is my testimony of how tallow ,and for the last year...Flying Cow Tallow, has changed my skin.
After my 4th baby, I struggled with cystic acne. Nothing helped! What the dermatologist recommended did nothing. What the lady at the fancy spa recommended did nothing! I even tried the infomercial acne kits. They seemed to reduce some inflammation temporarily, but then after a month or two my skin would be right back where I started. Horrible, deep, painful cystic acne all over.
At my wits end, I tried tallow. It was way cheaper than other things I had tried! What did I have to lose?
After a couple days, I remember my acne NOT getting worse so I continued using it. That was better than most things I had tried! One day, I realized I had less and less acne, and my skin felt so good!
I got pregnant with my 5th baby and was waiting expectantly for my usual acne to return when my hormones when bananas...or, my worst fear, the cystic acne to return again. I had acne since a young teen, but it seemed to be getting worse and worse over time (even with great exercise and healthy diet and "doing all the things").
I went through the pregnancy, no acne. Now, four months post-baby (and lots of stress that usually makes my skin break out like crazy) and still my skin looks great! Its not perfect but I LOVE my skin! I know my skin loves tallow and I can see the difference so much when I look back at pictures from last year.
For the first time in my life, people have even complemented me on my skin!
I have tried other tallows, and my skin did well with them, but my own recipe is the best! I don't mind tallows with added olive oil, but I prefer the fluffy smooth feeling using coconut oil brings and the tingle of the organic peppermint oil. Plus, Coconut oil and essential oils are loaded with tons of benefits themselves!
I have been using my own recipe for the past year (I used others for the first 6 months)...and I am so happy with it, I want to share it with my family and friends! Please let me know if you would like a sample or check out @flyingcowtallow on Etsy to buy. :)
Each jar is handmade by me in small batches. Everything is fresh and 100% organic. This is made with a high grade, grass-fed, organic tallow.
