Ingredient details

Animal Tallow is fat that is commonly derived from Pork, beef or muttoni. It is used in many products such as fabric softener, lip balm and bar soaps. It contains similar useful fatty acids which are also found in plant oils, and can 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.
