Buffalo Tallow, the Superior Tallow

You may have tried or heard of bath and beauty products that use other types of tallow, such as beef tallow, goat tallow, sheep tallow or pig tallow. Tallow products in general have gained popularity in recent years for their ability to effectively moisturize and heal skin. 

Buffalo tallow is a superior option to tallow that comes from other livestock, both because buffalo tallow provides a uniquely effective makeup for human skin - but also because of how our sourced buffalo are raised & processed.

Buffalo tallow can be particularly beneficial for individuals with the following skin conditions:

  • Dry, sensitive skin
  • Irritated skin conditions
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Dermatitis

This nutrient-dense superfood has rich fatty acids that help to replenish the skin's natural moisture barrier, soothing inflammation and reducing redness. Moreover, its gentle and non-comedogenic properties make it suitable for those prone to acne or other skin sensitivities. It won’t clog pores.

Its natural richness in vitamins A, D & E as well as antioxidants promotes skin regeneration, leaving your complexion radiant and revitalized. Buffalo tallow is renowned for its ability to deeply penetrate the skin, delivering moisture at a cellular level. Unlike synthetic alternatives, our products do not contain harsh, toxic chemicals or artificial fragrances, making it suitable for sensitive skin types.

Sourced Exclusively from USA-Raised Wild Idea Buffalo

Made in the USA with tallow sourced exclusively from Wild Idea Buffalo, our buffalo tallow is sourced from buffalo who lived their entire lives grazing vast prairies, with over 300,000 acres of grassland, across South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska and Montana to call home.

  • Unlike lower quality tallows (such as beef tallows),

    you'll never find artificial growth hormones or antibiotics in our products. These buffalo are prairie grass-fed, prairie grass-finished and 100% humanely field harvested. This process eliminates the stress other livestock experience from being loaded onto trucks and sent to a mass production facility. That means the resulting tallow is not pumped full of stress hormones immediately before being processed.
