Tallow Body Butter



What are the advantages of body butter over body lotion?

1. Body butters and body lotions are both popular skincare products that are used to moisturize and nourish the skin, but they do have some differences. Some advantages of body butter over body lotion include:

2. Thicker consistency: Body butters have a thicker, more dense consistency than body lotions, which makes them more effective at providing a deep moisturization to the skin.

3. Long-lasting hydration: Body butters are known to provide a longer-lasting hydration to the skin as they take a bit longer to absorb than lotions.

4. More nourishing: Body butters contain more natural oils and butters than body lotions, which makes them more nourishing for the skin. They can provide a richer, more luxurious feel to the skin.

5. Good for dry skin: Body butters are particularly beneficial for people with dry or very dry skin as they provide intense hydration to the skin.

6. Less ingredients: Body butters are usually made with less ingredients and are more natural than body lotions, which makes them a better choice for people with sensitive skin.

How can I turn FATCO’s Body Butta from a balm to a whip?

1. Warm your jar of body butter in the microwave for 15 to 30 seconds.

2. Using a stand mixer or a hand mixer, whip until a fluffy texture is achieved. If it seems to be taking a while, try popping your bowl into the fridge for about 10 minutes and then continuing to whip.

3. That’s it! Now you have a rich, creamy whip that feels soft and luxurious! And as an added bonus, once the whip is completed, you’ll probably need a much larger tub. Because this whipping action infuses air into the butter, the volume of the product will be substantially higher once whipping is completed!

4. Enjoy! -- And YES, you can absolutely do this with our Myrrhaculous Face Cream, too!

How does animal fat improve the texture of skin?

1. Animal fats, such as grass-fed beef tallow, are rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals that can have a positive impact on the texture of the skin. The benefits include:

2. Moisturization: Animal fats, such as tallow, are occlusive moisturizers, which means they create a barrier on the skin that helps to lock in moisture. This can help to reduce dryness and improve the overall texture of the skin.

3. Nourishment: Animal fats contain a high amount of essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, which can help to nourish and strengthen the skin, leading to a more even and smooth texture.

4. Barrier function: Fatty acids in animal fats can help to strengthen the skin's natural barrier function, which can help to protect the skin from environmental stressors and reduce inflammation, which can lead to a more even and smooth texture.

5. Anti-aging: Animal fats contain high levels of vitamin A, which can help to improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leading to a more youthful and smooth texture.

6. Non-irritating: Animal fats like tallow, are non-irritating, making them a great choice for people with sensitive skin.

How long does whipped tallow last?

Whipped tallow, like any other homemade skincare products, is perishable and will not last as long as commercial products.

A general rule of thumb is that whipped tallow should be used within 6 months to a year if kept in a cool, dark and dry place, away from light and heat. If you notice any signs of spoilage such as discoloration, a rancid smell or texture change, it should be discarded.
