What are the main nutritional BENEFITS of tallow? • Tallow is easily absorbed by your skin! If you feel greasy then you are using too much. A little goes a long way! • An amazing vitamin profile- 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 fatty acid profile - These fatty acids are found naturally in youthful and glowing skin and tend to decline as we age. * Palmitic Acid- Protects skin from the environment and smooths skin. * Omega 7 (Palmitoleic Acid)- Anti-Microbial. * CLA-Anti-inflammatory Benefits; Calms inflamed skin and kills bacteria. * 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. * Omega 9 (Oleic Acid)- Awesome carrier to the other oils and helps penetrate these nutrients deep into the skin.
American Farm and Larder offers organic coconut oil in our balm. Coconut is rich in anti-oxidant vitamin E, making it an excellent carrier oil for anti-aging skin-healing serums. In addition, coconut is rich in medium-chain triglyceride lauric acid, which makes it one of the healthiest oils for the skin. While helping fade away age spots, coconut is good at strengthening the skin against cellulite, eliminating keratosis pillars and fading stretch marks. In addition, it is a natural sun blocker, so this oil helps to protect your skin against sun damage.
