In today's society, a lot of effort is being invested into skin care and beauty products. There are plenty of modern treatments and products touted as able to reduce wrinkles, remove callouses, heal psoriasis and achieve overall healthy and glowing skin, yet they don’t really seem to work for more than a couple of hours after application. And upon closer inspection, we realize that over-the-counter creams and such include toxins and chemicals that do us more harm than good. It's time to take a look at what traditional people do! Hello, tallow!
Andrew J. Gardner is a WAPF-member who discusses how his eyes were opened to the benefits of traditional animal fats for skin care. His story led to growing excitement and such interest in the topic that he established a company to offer these products to the public, Vintage Tradition.
Andrew explains in today's interview how animal oils and our skin cells have the same cell structure, which makes them ideal for healing and nourishing our skin, and a step up from what plant-based oils can do for us. They have many fantastic characteristics including anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and even anti-cancer properties. You will certainly be motivated by this discussion to pursue more natural skin care products, to the point that you may even begin making your own!
