Nose To Tail

While a paleo diet—of all-natural, animal and plant-based foods—nourishes you on the inside, FATCO’s ultra-rich paleo skincare nourishes you likewise on the outside. It all starts with tallow from grass-fed, pasture-raised cows here in the USA. Tallow (aka animal fat) provides the nutrient-rich base for the skincare. It’s super moisturizing and packed with Vitamins A, D, E, and K. FATCO blends in essential oils and a mix of plant-based fats, like coconut, almond, and avocado oils—but never anything artificial. Tallow was the must-have skincare ingredient for centuries, but it fell out of favor over the years—in step with whole foods disappearing from our diets, notes Founder Cassy Burnside. Cassy is devoted to a paleo lifestyle, and adheres to a "nose to tail" approach—using all parts of an animal. The tallow she sources would typically be tossed away, but thanks to her, this nutrient-packed element can nurture your skin.

    @bonnie All of our products are scented with therapeutic grade essential oils. The Myrrhaculous Face Cream smells well...Myrrhaculous if I do say so myself! It smells like a relaxing stroll through fields of Lavender! As for the Cleansing Oil, I have 2 words...SPA DAY! With Lavender, Rosemary & Lemongrass, the Cleansing Oil smells like a trip to a 5 Star spa! And now for my personal favorite...the Fat Stick! This guy really packs a punch! Cassy (our Founder) describes this smell as a peppermint patty! It features Peppermint & Lavender essential oils. The fat stick is actually not only a great moisturizer but is awesome to put under your nose if you have an upset tummy for the refreshing an soothing peppermint scent. Seriously the Fat Stick can do ANYTHING!

    Wow, nose to tail. Using every part. How about using no parts? You're so very cavalier on taking the life of an animal and dissecting it, to use all of its parts. Have you ever petted a cow? They have brains, emotions, and feelings. Shame on you. All the way to your bank account.

  • Mike

    Hi Nan, no one here is dismissing the life of a cow. We appreciate you sticking up for your values, but as is mentioned in the story, FATCO is using tallow that would otherwise be discarded. They are not responsible for taking the life of an animal.

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    1/19/2017 11:49 AM

    Hi Susan, again, while you may not be interested in the product because it is animal-based, that doesn't mean it condones or exploits animal cruelty.

    Nan and Susan, they are coming after the fact and saying that they are picking up what would just be thrown away and saying wait this is useful. Just like the Native Americans that believe that everything has a spirit and a purpose. Which everything does have a purpose. So when they needed to kill for food they then used as much of the animal that could be found to be of use. It's not cruelty it's living.

    Thank you Jonathan for making that point. I'd like to know how exactly Nan knows the emotions of a cow actually, and piping in from Susan that she wouldn't take it for free? I love the Grommet and your product!! Neither of them need to purchase nor comment.

    You must have missed the recent article in Smithsonian.com that disses the myth that early hominins relied heavily on meat for their diet. The article is entitled "The Paleo diet may need a rewrite..." and it ends with this sentence: "Hominins were probably predominantly vegetarian." That said, I shop cruelty-free, and would not use these products even if you were giving them away. I expect better from the Grommet.

    Hi Susan, we note in our story that the paleo diet is a mixture of animal and plant-based foods which that article you reference supports. The paleo diet fad might not be accurate, but that doesn't make FATCO's or our depiction less so. We appreciate you sticking to your shopping values.

  • Julia

    1/19/2017 12:04 PM

    @Mary Hi Mary! There is nothing dangerous for children in there, we put that on the label because it is good to keep all body care and cosmetics out of reach of children just in case! We recently had a friend whose 4 year old ate half a jar of our product and she was happy that it was a safe and natural product that she didn't need to worry about! If you are ever stranded on a dessert island with some FATCO, it would be safe to eat (although we don't promise it would taste good)!

    How quickly does this absorb into the skin? How greasy is it? And how does it stand up to occasional hand washing? I'd love to find something that I don't have to re-apply every time I wash my hands. Thanks!

  • Julia
    Julia – Special Guest
    1/19/2017 11:54 AM

    @Mary Hi Mary! It absorbs into your skin in a few minutes and doesn't leave a greasy residue. A little goes a long way so if you feel like it is too heavy then we recommend using a bit less. I will also reapply with the Fat Stick during the day!

  • Barbara

    I am interested in your product but am wondering about shelf life and preservation. In the face cream, for instance, is the myrrh sufficient as a preservative? Would refrigeration be optimal?

  • Julia
    Julia – Special Guest
    1/19/2017 1:06 PM

    @Barbara Hi Barbara! We recommend that you use your products within one year of manufacturing and then use them within 6 months of opening. The Face Cream does not need to be refrigerated, it is okay to store it at room temperature.
