Animal tallow is fat that is commonly derived from pork, beef or mutton. It's used in many products such as fabric softener, lip balm and bar soaps. Animal tallow contains fatty acids similar to those found in plant oils, and they can both be used to make ingredients such as surfactants, emulsifiers and moisturisers. Although animal tallow is not hazardous to human health or the environment, we prefer to keep our products animal free where possible. We never test on animals, all of our products are vegetarian and most are vegan.
