I absolutely love this soap. The scent, the lather, the look! Everything about it is top of the line.
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 crisp, minty, refreshing, herbaceous scent with a sweet undertone. It is energetically energizing, motivating and cleansing.
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; Peppermint essential oil; organic unrefined shea butter; Rosemary essential oil; Eucalyptus essential oil; white kaolin clay (natural mineral colorant); indigo powder (natural herbal colorant) 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 love this soap. It is so refreshing. I use it every day and can't get enough of the smell. They really should bottle up the smell and sell it as perfume cause I would buy it.
I use this soap to wash my hair. Since I have started, I no longer have scalp issues. I used to get dryness and flakes especially in the winter. Now, I use the soap every day and my scalp feels very healthy.
I love how this soap makes my skin feel. I love how it brightens my day when I take a shower with it first thing in the morning. I love how it smells. Great product!
My girlfriend and I went to the Gluten free show in Schaumburg and met the lady who makes these soaps. They smelled really good and she discussed the benefits of them with us. We bought the 5 bar special and opened this one right away when we got home. I like how it feels cooling and stimulating. It really cleans well and when I get out of the shower, I am not dry and ashy. I've been telling everyone I can ever since. This soap is very well made. You should try it.
