The lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer are right around the corner and can wreak havoc on our hair and skin.
Greater exposure outdoors means more sweating, more UV exposure, and more dirt. It often means more showers and/or baths, and that translates into potential skin problems. Using a traditional tallow based soap or chemical laden shampoos, conditioners and body washes; you have a greater chance of stripping the natural oils out of your hair and skin, and sucking the moisture from the epidermis and scalp.
The result? Dry, itchy skin. Flaky scalp; brittle hair. Exactly opposite of what you could achieve by making one simple switch to Absolutely Natural.
First, the other guys. Tallow based soaps (see below) use animal renderings as their base, leaving skin dry and often feeling as if there is a film on you after your shower. Traditional shampoos, and body washes are mostly water with very nasty chemicals like parabens, sulfates and phthalates. All of those ingredients have been linked to problems including increased estrogen content, free radical generators and some cancer causing materials. And, they possess few, if any, nutrients.
Tallow is a rendered form of beef or mutton fat, processed from suet. It is solid at room temperature. Unlike suet, tallow can be stored for extended periods without the need for refrigeration to prevent decomposition.
In industry, tallow is not strictly defined as beef or mutton fat. In this context, tallow is animal fat that conforms to certain technical criteria, including its melting point. It is common for commercial tallow to contain fat derived from other animals, such as lard from pigs,
Now, Absolutely Natural. No sulfates, parabens or phthalates. Nutrient rich formulas that do a great job cleaning hair and skin. With our Shampoos, Conditioners and Body Washes, you can step out of the shower with hydrated skin and hair. Healthy, vibrant and alive.
Absolutely Natural products, chock full of anti-oxidants, boast free radical scavengers and are infused with nutrients designed for anti-aging.. In addition, all of our products have super moisturizers, which are vital for summertime when UV exposure is at its greatest strength.
A quick perusal of “us vs. them” labels proves it all. You really don’t need to go much past the first ingredient … water for them; aloe for us. The rest of the ingredient decks are just as polar opposite … chemicals and cheap fillers for them; vitamins, nutrients and cosmetic grade raw materials for us.
