Our Tallow Story

Many people wonder how we got into the world of tallow and its medicinal teachings and embodied wisdom.

Our story is heart-centred in my own journey with eczema and wanting simple solutions for myself and others who experience it.

As a young child, I started suffering from the relentless pain that comes with eczema, as early as 1 year old. For anyone who hasn’t experienced it before, eczema is a skin condition characterised by inflammation, itchiness, and redness. It can often feel incredibly sensitive, irritated, and painful. I remember having all my baby pictures taken with bright pink cheeks. I am unsure what caused it specifically; it could have been a myriad of things. The mystery continued as I grew up becoming a teenager; it started getting really bad from the stress of being at school. Sometimes I even had boils all over my chest, hives on my arms and legs, and in grade 12 extremely puffy eyes. This condition covered me from head to toe, making me want to hide from school and being seen. Unfortunately, makeup and typical cosmetic products found in the supermarket and pharmacies only made it worse.

When I had my first baby young, the eczema returned with even more vengeance all over my body. My son was going through the same issues, and we noticed very quickly that stress and diet were huge contributing factors. These were variables we could control, but we still needed a remedy for the external skin that demanded soothing.

So, I went in search of holistic all-natural products to help me. That’s when I found tallow at a health conference I attended. It helped for a long time, so much so that I simply forgot I even needed it.

And then when I was pregnant with my second child, I was on the hunt for something super simple to assist if any eczema were to return and to assist with nappy rash. I wanted a 2-3 ingredient max, something that wouldn’t need a whole bunch of "stuff" ingredients in it to make it actually "work". A friend was using tallow at the time, and I thought I'll try making it as I love D.I.Y and creating my own remedies in the kitchen, as I have a background in studying herbal medicines. So, I made it!

To source the tallow, I called all the local organic butchers, and I felt extremely out of place as I didn’t even know how to say Suet at the time!

The first batch I made smelled so bad; the whole house lingered with the scent of beef fat for days! But I had successfully made my very first batch of tallow, shared it with all my friends, and then their friends wanted some too. Over time, we have refined this craft of working with this beautiful art form of tallow and its deeply embedded wisdom for our skin, helping those who have been seeking it the most. What you’re seeking is seeking you, and tallow definitely found us.

This is a small batch family-run business, heart-centered by myself, Nish, and my incredible partner, Seb (he lifts the heavy boxes for us). We are the voices behind all your curious questions and all the behind-the-scenes work. As we grow, we intend to have an even more interpersonal relationship with our customers, cultivating a community of sovereign beings embracing natural remedies and living.



Our whipped tallow is an all over balm that has a list of uses so long we could be here forever. A skin healing miracle you wont want to be without.

At first it may seem kind of strange to use beef fat as skincare. But the truth is, using tallow on your skin is a practice that dates back thousands of years. A healing cream that has been loved for centuries.

There is truly nothing that feeds the skin quite like tallow does. Our grass-fed organic tallow has a nutrient dense fatty acid profile that works well with our skin. Penetrating the barrier to deliver fat-soluble activators.
Containing vitamins A, D, E and K as well as linoleic acid which is known for its anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties.



The suet is sourced from local organic farmers in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. It is then rendered at a low temperature to preserve the integrity of enzymes and nutrients. Because it has a naturally long shelf life there are no added preservatives or chemicals, keeping it pure and naked. Once our tallow goes through multiple purifying processes it is then whipped with 100% organic jojoba oil (plus any essential oils that make up our extras range). Then ready to be sent off!

A few of the frequently asked questions we get..

 Q: Does it smell?

A: The most common question we get is about the scent of our Tallow Creams. The natural scent of the tallow is mild and nutty, which after application, gradually fades away... leaving behind nothing but soft skin. If you are after something scented we offer the option to add essential oils for a customised smell- our Lemon Tallow blend being a crowd favourite.

Oil Vibrant Oil & Calendula Balm have no natural tallow scent.

Q: What are the benefits?

A: Naked Tallow is an all-natural moisturiser that is deeply nourishing for your skin. It helps to hydrate and protect your skin from environmental stressors. It is particularly beneficial for those with dry or sensitive skin. 
The benefits are truly endless, but super super soft skin is the number 1 in our books!

Q: Is your tallow grass-fed and finished?

A: Yes, not only is the beef suet we use 100% grass-fed and finished it is also sourced from a Certified Organic farmer. Filtered water is also used throughout the rendering process which results in a high-quality tallow with less exposure to toxic chemicals.

Q: Can I add essential oils to my Naked Tallow?

A: Yes! We offer three different essential oil blends- Lemon Tallow, Sleepytime & Aftersun. Or if you prefer to add your own at home that's also great. Be mindful of dosages when adding to tallow you'll be using on babies, children and people who suffer from eczema/dermatitis. 

Q: Is Naked Tallow suitable for all skin types?

A: Yes, Naked Tallow is suitable for all skin types. However, if you have particularly sensitive skin, we recommend doing a patch test before using it all over your face. Our gentle, all-natural formula is designed to be safe and effective for everyone.

Q: How long does a jar of Naked Tallow last?

A: Our creams go a VERY long way. You only need to use a small amount each application. This means the jar will last a few months if used for the whole family!!

Q: Is Naked Tallow sustainable and ethical?

A: Yes, we are committed to using only sustainable ingredients and never test our products on animals. Our organic tallow, which is made of a byproduct of the meat industry and would otherwise go to waste.
