Happy Skincare Monday!
Don’t miss your chance to win some amazing goodies at the end of this post!
When an awesome company comes along that uses sound ingredients and ethical practices, we love sharing their work with you.
We’re thrilled to announce this month’s skincare favorite: FATface skincare!
Cassy is a Mechanical Engineer turned Skincare Engineer extraordinaire! She’s a lover of the outdoors, and enjoys hiking and biking. She’s passionate about fueling her body with real, whole foods and all-natural skincare.
Thus FATface Skincare was born!
We’re quite fond of the Body Butta from FATface! It’s made from 100% grass-fed cows. Sure, you’ve heard of tallow. Quite simply, it’s rendered fat. Back in “the day,” our grandparents regularly cooked in animal fats – pork lard and beef tallow were staples in most kitchens, often from animals raised right on their own farms. And wouldn’t you know it? These fats, despite what we’ve been told, are actually healthy. (If you don’t believe us, check out Liz’s myth-busting book!)
Thankfully, the real food movement is helping to get these heart-healthy fats back into our diets. Tallow is loaded with cancer-fighting CLA (Congulated Linoleic Acid), heart-healthy omega-3′s, and Vitamin K2.
Just as it’s good for your diet, it’s also good for your skin. True moisturizers (like grass-fed tallow) are like the good, healthy foods you eat each day. They provide a solid foundation for long-term skin health. Tallow is incredibly nourishing to your skin, and especially beneficial during the dry, winter months. It helps with a variety of skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, and even acne scarring. Animal products are generally the MOST neutral and LEAST reactive for human skin. Tallow is incredible for skincare, and it helps retain hydration in the skin.
