Product Review: Crunchy Balm And The Benefits of Tallow

Until Crunchy Organics reached out to me, I'd never heard of tallow balm. I had no idea what it was. As it turns out, it's beef or mutton fat! After my very positive experience with emu oil, I decided to give tallow a shot. I love animals and if we're going to include them in our diet, all parts of the animal should be used. Tallow balm is just one of many ways to utilize animal fat.

A giant thank you to Crunchy Organics, by the way! I'm happy to announce that they're a new affiliate of mine! I'm looking forward to trying more of their products in the future ;-)

I was also very happy to receive not just one balm, but two! I got the unscented kind as well as "Sweet Girl":

What are the benefits of tallow balm for the skin?

It's a saturated fat. Since our cell membranes are 50% fatty acid, it's important to maintain a healthy amount of fat... especially in the skin, our largest organ. Some other benefits:

  • anti-cancer
  • anti-inflammatory
  • antimicrobial
  • smooths the skin
  • slows the loss of water
  • promotes healing

Not too shabby, am I right? I gave Crunchy Balm a shot for two weeks.
