About the Brand
My outdoor lifestyle exposes my skin to harsh conditions. For years I was hard pressed to find a good “natural” moisturizer to satiate my element-ravaged skin for any length of time, without greasiness or high expense. Companies touting the same “vegan”, “organic”, and “botanical” slogans enjoyed nice earnings off the likes of me! Nice products, but always the same lackluster results. Something was missing.
Fast forward several years, now married to a grass farmer, imagine my discovery that the “missing magical ingredient” was in my pasture!
If you haven’t guessed by now, I’m talking about animal fat, a special kind of animal fat called TALLOW. So what is tallow, where does it come from, and why is it the magical ingredient missing in modern all-natural skincare? Read here to find out why I think TALLOW = GOLD? All I can say is it IS the ingredient I was missing! FINALLY. It really is like gold to me. It provides deeply nourishing, protective, and long lasting moisture for my element ravaged skin. Not to mention . . . it’s incredibly nutritious! After regular use I see in the mirror radiance despite photodamage. My esthetician comments on my skin’s improved elasticity. It has a healthy sheen instead of the tired, ashy appearance from before.
How should I get started with Buffalo Gal?
Our sets are the best way to get started with tallow. They follow our recommended Cleanse-Tone-Nourish formula for skin that is clean, balanced and glowing.
Do your products smell like beef?
We do not refine our tallow so sensitive noses may detect an animal scent. Keep in mind, a slightly fishy scent is associated with a high omega-3 content and a “beefy” smell means there’s an abundance of vitamins! We also use a range of essential oils to add natural scents to our balms, and our fans are obsessed with the way our products smell.
Our tallow is rendered only from the suet (cavity fat), which is very pure. We find that buffalo tallow smells cleaner than beef tallow, but again, sensitive noses may recognize that it’s an animal fat. Once applied, most of this scent dissipates as the product absorbs.
Do you offer samples?
Sure, we offer a Curated Sample Set found in the Sets category. We want you to feel satisfied you’re making a purchase you’ll absolutely love. The samples are free of charge. You only pay $8 for the cost of the shipping materials and postage. Be sure to tell us about your skin in the Text box provided and if there is a particular product you want to try. We will select samples we think will be a good fit for you. Click here to order! Please note, not all products have samples available.
Can I buy plain tallow so I can make my own products?
We carefully calibrate our manufacturing based on our own farm’s supply of grassfed tallow. This process means we honor our animals by using as much of them as possible. It also means that we don’t have enough supply to sell raw ingredients. Our products are completely artisanal, but we think the results are well worth it!
Do you offer products for sensitive skin?
Yes! Many of our most enthusiastic clients are those with the most sensitive skin, food allergies, autoimmune conditions, etc. Our grassfed water buffalo tallow is hypoallergenic, and we offer unscented products for very sensitive skin. In addition, many of our natural ingredients for skincare are healing for sensitive skin.
One of your Tallow Balms doesn’t seem to absorb well into my skin. What should I do?
You may simply have applied too much. A little really does go a long way with tallow products! Simply give your product more time to absorb and consider applying at night. Remember to pat this balm onto your skin rather than rub. Alternatively, exfoliating regularly can help with skin cell turnover and may help products absorb more readily.
