Bison Balm

Surely you’ve heard about how good pastured, grass fed meats are for us. The saturated fats are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and help keep our bodies’ levels of Omegas in balance. 

Our cell membranes are made up of a double layer of fatty acids.  Saturated fats constitute at least 50% of the cell membrane.  Because saturated fats tend to be more solid, they help give the cell membrane a stiffness necessary for proper function.   Healthy skin cells with sufficient fats would make for healthy, toned skin.  Interestingly, tallow fat is around 50% saturated fat – just like our cell membranes, so its logical that tallow would benefit our cell biology.  Tallow also contains the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K which are found only in animal fat.  Tallow from grass-fed animals also contains conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which has anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as palmitoleic acid, which has natural antimicrobial properties.

One of the things I’m constantly telling people is “everything that goes on the skin should be edible – because your skin absorbs everything!”  People light up when we get to talking about this – such a basic truth rests well on their hearts.

I’ve had so much fun working on the formulae for these. And to have customers asking for them was such a confirmation!

I KNOW the beef and buffalo tallows in this are grass fed because I obtained the suets from reputable grass fed outfits and private hunters and rendered it myself.  (See my post titled Grass Fed for more info).
