I have very oily skin and this soap helps keep my face from breaking out.
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 fresh, medicinal, green scent with a slight floral undertone. It is energetically energizing, cleansing and refreshing.
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; Tea Tree essential oil; organic unrefined shea butter; Lavender essential oil; Clary Sage essential oil; neem oil; Annatto seed (natural herbal colorant), spirulina (natural herbal colorant); kaolin clay (natural mineral 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.

This soap is gentle on my skin and also smells amazing! I constantly battle with eczema and this is the only soap that does not irritate my skin. I highly recommend this product!
i have been using this soap for two weeks on my face for my acne and it is really helping my acne problem. I use it in the morning during my shower, then when I get out, as per Brittany's instructions, I put a thin layer of jojoba oil all over my face. Then I let it sit for 10-15 minutes and then dab my face with a paper towel to remove the extra oil. As she explained it to me, when I do this it allows my face to suck in the oil it needs and leave the oil it doesn't on my skin to get absorbed my the paper towel. It really makes sense, and so far it is really working. I haven't had any new pimples and my face is far less red than normal.
I LOVE the TLC soap. My face has not been this clear in over a year and it's only been a week.
I had read up on the benefits of using tallow on your skin and had been looking for quality tallow soap. Soulstice went one step further and made a tallow soap with other organic, healthy fats AND essential oils. TLC is my absolute favorite. My skin feels hydrated and soft coming out of the shower and the goosepimples, as well as the redness of my skin is diminishing after only a week of use. LOVE IT!
