This soap is phenomenal! Refreshing way to wake you up in the morning.
This handcrafted bar soap is made by me, Brittany, owner and artisan of Nefertem Naturals, the leaders in grass fed tallow skincare.
This soap in particular has a bright, lemony, crisp type of a scent (similar scent to lemongrass) with a slight earthy undertone from that vetiver. It is energetically uplifting, energizing and inspiring.
Ingredients: Grass-fed tallow (hand-rendered by me and progressively filtered to minimize scent); organic extra virgin olive oil; organic coconut oil; purified water; sodium hydroxide; organic castor oil; May Chang essential oil; organic unrefined shea butter; Vetiver essential oil; French green clay (natural mineral colorant); spirulina powder (natural herbal colorant); activated charcoal (from coconut); and positive intention (100% pure).
Great for face, body, hair AND shaving!
The clay makes a smooth glide for shaving and helps draw impurities from the skin. Clay is also said to replace missing minerals in the skin.
Even in hard water this soap lathers extremely well and will last for weeks if left to dry in between uses.
It is very rich and creamy and helps skin maintain hydration naturally. Because this soap does not dry out your skin, it makes an excellent all natural face wash, even for those with ultra-sensitive skin, acne, eczema or other skin ailment.
This soap is definitely considered an aromatherapy tool as the aroma is very powerful and uplifting. I use twice the industry standard of essential oils per pound which truly provides an aromatic experience like no other!
I work with a small family ranch that raises cattle the old-fashioned way: without human interruption, on green grass, with NO hormones or steroids and with respect. When the animal is processed for its beef, I receive the fat in raw form, render (simmer on low heat) the oil from it and purify it with progressively finer filters to minimize any odors. Then I freeze it to ensure it’s fresh as I make products throughout the year in small batches.
Nefertem Naturals mission is to bring the power of nature into daily routine and our products do just that!

Why Use Tallow in Your Skin Care Routine?
Because there's NOTHING like it. Tallow (only grass fed tallow is as follows, conventionally farmed cows do not contain the following benefits, in fact, their fat is loaded with pesticides, hormones and GMO grain) is rich in vitamins A, D, E (a powerful antioxidant) and K, CLA (antitumor properties) and anti-microbial palmitoleic acid.
Our skin is biologically compatible with tallow in that they both contain 50-55% saturated fats (yes, these are the good fats) which help maintain skin cell integrity and tone. Tallow and sebum (the oily secretion of our skin's sebaceous glands) consist primarily of triglycerides which allow for easy absorption of nutrients even while bathing. The connection between our skin and tallow is so close, in fact, that the Latin word sebum actually means tallow!
Tallow has been used for thousands of years by the most advanced civilizations in the world. It was only around the 1950's that tallow was vilified by the vegetable oil producers and then quickly left our diets and skin care routines. Fortunately for us, modern scientific research is proving how beneficial grass fed tallow is for our diets and skincare regiment. We are now seeing the shift back to tallow.

I am just satisfied with my purchase. This soap is simply dreamy. The way it smells is delightful. The way it feels on my skin is amazing. The way it puts me into a good attitude is marvelous. I really can't say enough good about this soap.
This really is the best soap I have ever tried. It is the perfect blend of bubbles, creaminess and cleaning. It makes me feel very clean and not dry at the same time which is very intriguing to me. I love that it is all natural and that the lady makes it all by hand. I love supporting small family businesses. I think they put so much love into what they do that when you're rubbing up with the soap in the shower you can just feel the good vibes! Love it...and you will too!
There is something about waking up to the smell of lemongrass in the morning especially when its combined with vetiver. This is hands down my favorite soap as it really energizes me first thing in the morning. It's kind of like drinking a glass of lemon water for me. It wakes me up and gets me going with a positive mind. Love it!
I travel a lot for business and never leave home without putting a bar of this soap in my bag. The smell literally fills the hotel room when I'm taking a shower and even when I get back from a day of work, I can still smell it when I open the door. I guess it's like taking home with me when I go because this soap (all of them actually, I just prefer this one) fills the house up with a real nice scent too.
