Tallow has numerous health benefits as well as for skin.
Tallow is rich in Vitamins A, D, K and E, Omega 3 fatty acids and anti-inflammatory properties.
The structure of our cell membranes is made up of approximately 50% saturated fats, which is similar to the percentage of saturated fatty acids in tallow. Therefore, tallow is very compatible with the biology of our skin and helps skin retain moisture. Additionally, fatty acids are a crucial nutrient for skin repair and regeneration. The naturally occuring fatty acids found in tallow are: stearic acid, oleic acid (Omega 9), conjugated linolenic acid (CLA), palmitoleic acid (Omega 7), and palmitic acid.
