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.
