Vintage Traditions

Unveiled: The Secret of Tallow Balm for Skin Care and Its Benefits

Until recently, the modern world was oblivious to what our ancestors knew to be the absolute best substance for skin care. But, in 2009, Andrew Gardner, founder and owner of Vintage Tradition, made the astounding discovery himself during a tour of a farm in Tequila, Mexico. Tequila is, of course, where the famous liquor is produced from the blue agave plant. Even though the workers in this desert where the plants are cultivated did not use gloves, their hands were soft and not dry or calloused. He was informed that they had always used a balm which was a mixture of beef tallow and gel from the blue agave plant.

Armed with this information, Andrew created a formula that he could use and share with others. Made from a simple recipe for traditional nourishing and healing skin care, he made his Tallow Balm. This is available for others on his Vintage Tradition website. Before that time, there were virtually no skin care products available that were made with animal fats. Andrew also wrote a definitive research article on skin care. This appeared in the Winter 2012 issue of Wise Traditions, the journal of the Weston A. Price Foundation.

Now the cat was out of the bag. The taboo on the use of animal products in skin care began to be lifted. And now tallow for skin care has become accepted due to his work.

Tallow Balm is the ONLY THING you need for your skin.

Did that sound like an exaggeration? It’s not! Without getting into all the science covered in Andrew’s article, let’s just say that tallow is extremely similar to our own natural skin oil or “sebum” which lubricates and waterproofs our skin. In fact, “sebum”, a term coined around 1700, means “tallow” in Latin! Sounds like our ancestors knew more we thought!

Traditional wisdom held that this whole-food substance was supremely nourishing to the skin. We who believe in natural health know that we must give the body what it needs to maintain and heal itself, since only the body itself can do that job. Tallow is that perfect food and nourishment for the skin. It can be applied directly to the skin to give amazing results of skin health and healing. This explains why Andrew branded his Tallow Balm as “The Whole Food of Skin Care”.

Let the results speak for themselves!

The proof of the skin care is in the applying, and the testimonials from Tallow Balm users are simply amazing. Let’s look at just a few of them from people who used it for their faces.


“I love this cream! My 60+ sensitive skin has been through a lot but it is now well nourished, leaving me amazed and happy that it is never too late for one’s face to respond to what is really good and pure. NEVER BEFORE in my life did I EVER receive compliments about my complexion but I do now!

IMAGINE, AT MY AGE! I am so thrilled I discovered it! It is perfect for my skin. I apply it once a day in the morning. I could not believe the compliments I began getting when I started using it — praising my complexion even as I wore no make-up and USING NOTHING ELSE DAILY BUT THIS — praise from strangers and other women. What freedom and joy to use this INSTEAD of make-up. I go out with confidence knowing this balm is all I need to put my best face forward and age gracefully. I turned to it because I have always had very sensitive skin that reacted to anything.

FINALLY I found the simple wholesome product I have always wanted — with no suspicious and strange-sounding ingredients that have a string of chemicals on the label you can’t even pronounce or have allergens like soy.”

“I’d had a split lip for about a year and a half. I tried everything to heal it—from regular old chapstick to natural oils and shea butter—but nothing worked. I used Tallow Balm for two weeks, my lip healed, and it’s been healed ever since.”

“It exceeded my expectations! It is wonderful and soothing, absorbs quickly so you aren’t left feeling greasy, and my skin loves it. I never knew my skin could feel this soft and hydrated. It’s even making my breakouts vanish, and I was afraid they would look worse or even multiply from using the balm, but they do not. I am even using the balm all over my two-year-old, and she loves it too!”

“A few years ago I developed eczema on most of my body so severe I had to go on oral and topical steroids for six months. Desperate to get off those dangerous drugs I tried aloe, coconut oil, olive oil, manuka honey, raw honey, magnesium oil and the list goes on but nothing worked. Within a few hours of applying this tallow balm the itching and pain began to subside. Within a week or two I had weaned myself completely off the steroids and the eczema cleared in a couple of months.”

“To say I am stunned is an understatement. My family has tried everything you can possibly think of to help my two and a half year old daughter’s eczema. If it is out there, we have tried it. The recovery of her skin in less than two days is nothing short of a miracle! If only I had taken pictures of it two days ago, everyone would be shocked! At that time, it looked horrible. She had scratched her spots throughout her sleep, so much so that it was too sensitive for clothes to lay against her skin. Words can’t describe how you feel as a parent when your child is in pain and nothing you do seems to help. Our sweet girl would cry because she was in so much pain. It was heart-breaking.

But with just a few random applications of your balm over a couple days, our daughter’s skin is so much better! Not one spot is bleeding! My whole family is shocked!”

“Due to an undiagnosed skin issue, my face will often break out in boils, then a severe rash that dries to the point of cracking and bleeding. It is horrible! Dermatologists and doctors have given me steroid creams and lotions to no avail. I’ve tried applying coconut oil, olive oil, yogurt, raw cow’s milk—every idea I could find on the internet to relieve the burning and heal the dryness and cracking that results. Even water would cause my face to yield these burning red patches. My sister found Vintage Tradition and I immediately ordered Pretty Girly Tallow Balm based on the reviews. I just ordered my second jar as it is the ONLY thing that has ever helped and is continuing to heal my condition. It is wonderful and immediately gives me relief and calms the inflammation. I am so thankful to have found this product!”

“My natural conditioner recently changed its formula without notice, and I developed a massive allergic reaction with a rash and itching all over my face and neck. The only thing that stopped the itching and soothed the inflammation was the Tallow Balm I had on hand.”

Dry Skin

“I don’t use the term ‘life-changing’ loosely, but I’d like to pull out the trump card here and say that Tallow Balm literally changed my life (or at least my skin). Last winter, I had a terrible case of dry, chapped skin. Thanks to the dry, cold weather, it started getting so bad that my shoulders and upper arms were completely covered in patches of dry skin. No matter what form of over-the-counter lotion I bought, it just would not disappear. But then I found Tallow Balm. Within 5 days of applying it, the patches of dry skin were gone. GONE. Not reduced, not better. Gone.”
