Absolutely Pure Organic Skin Food is the whole-food of skincare, with a low PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acid) and high SFA (saturated fatty acid) content.
Simple, straightforward ingredients make it suitable for all skins; whether yours is oily, combination, dry, dehydrated or sensitive and eczema-prone - you can customise it with a spritz of Skin Drink.
Hand-crafted with tallow from grass-fed UK cattle for its superior moisturising properties and ability to slow transdermal water loss - this is especially important to note if you have eczema as your skin may not produce much oil and will be less able to retain water.
Tallow is practically free of wrinkle-promoting, DNA-damaging PUFA with its whopping 17% skin-healing stearic acid!
Skin Food will nourish your skin, balance sebum, improve hydration, strengthen and maintain the integrity of cells, reduce your risk of developing lipofuscin and the signs of premature aging.
Only a tiny amount is required, you'll be amazed by how little you need, so run your finger across the surface of the balm rather than scooping it out of the jar.
Available unscented for sensitive skin and very lightly-scented with sweet orange or rose geranium, chosen for their uplifting, mood-enhancing aromas and non-phototoxicity.
Rose geranium is purported to hydrate dry skin, clear acne, reduce signs of aging, minimise the appearance of scars, soothe conditions such as eczema and rosacea and induce feelings of calm and relaxation.
Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory sweet orange is said to slow the rate of skin damage experienced from UV light exposure and pollution due to it’s high antioxidant content, vitamin C in particular.
*All moisturisers and oils are best applied to damp skin to aid hydration; your skin needs water because it’s always evaporating. Never use any facial moisturiser on dry skin. It’s a waste of product and can actually have the opposite effect as it sits there, sealing in dryness, which could cause clogging over time. You can use use tap water but the mineral content can be irritating and drying so Absolutely Pure Skin Drink would be a better choice.*
Why Use Tallow In A Skincare Product?
Two very good reasons.
1) It’s a Paleo-friendly, traditional skin-care ingredient, the use of which dates back centuries.
2) It’s great for your skin!
Grass-fed beef tallow is naturally high in the same lipids as our own skin, making it the perfect product to nourish and replenish our skin’s natural resources.
As well as having similar levels of saturated fat to human skin cells, making it uniquely biologically compatible with our skin, tallow contains the essential vitamins A, D, E and K as well as the powerful anti-inflammatory CLA - conjugated linoleic acid.
Is It Only Good For Dry Skin?
It can benefit all skin types, but it's especially good for dry skin because of its ability to slow down transdermal water loss.
Because Skin Food works to replenish your skin’s own lipids and nutrients it is suitable for all skin types, use it with Skin Drink.
Having the water element separate allows you to customise it to your skin's daily needs - some days it may feel drier than others and so you can adjust the amounts accordingly.
Is It Ethical And Cruelty-Free?
Yes. Ethical and sustainable too. The tallow comes from cattle that are pasture-raised on a farm that has high animal welfare standards.
There is no need to test food-grade products on animals, just willing humans. The very idea of testing cosmetics on animals is totally abhorrent and was rightfully banned in the UK in 1998 and the EU in 2013.
