Being freely available to humans throughout the ages, animal fats have traditionally been used in all manner of ways. It’s only been relatively recently that they’ve fallen out of fashion and we’ve moved towards plant oils as a basis for both our nutritional intake and our skin care.
But this has since given way to palm oil and other plant oils in the more natural soaps and highly refined stearic acid and sodium tallowate isolates in commercial soaps.
Some higher end shaving soaps still have tallow and lanolin as a base. And animal products like lard, tallow and goats milk are making a comeback with artisan soap makers who have a focus on traditional handcrafted soaps.
Beef tallow is the fat which is extracted from the beef which is the processed form of suet. In the room temperature, it becomes solid. Without refrigerating it could be stored for long periods. It is placed in an airtight container in order to ward off oxidation. It contains 4% of polyunsaturated fat, 42% of monounsaturated fat and 50% of saturated fat. Tallow is great for the skin as it contains vitamins such as niacin, D, A, K and E. It possesses the conjugated linoleic acid that contains the anti-inflammatory properties that helps to counteract the cancer. Palmitoleic is a nutrient which is available in tallow and possesses various antimicrobial properties.
