Our handmade skin balm uses organic fats and ingredients that closely mimic the fats and oils found naturally in healthy youthful skin

Bó Balm is the name we’ve given to our unique hand-made skin balm. Bó, the Irish name for cow, refers to the precious beef tallow of our organic grass-fed and grass-finished cattle, which we harvest and hand-render. The diet and care of our cattle gives our tallow an amazing vitamin and fatty acid profile. We combine our nutrient-rich tallow with the healing properties of essential oils, to produce Bó Balm- a clean product that produces excellent results on skin.
Our ancestors knew the benefits of tallow on skin, and this wisdom is carried on in Bó Balm. Our skin responds to tallow on a cellular level. Sebum is the ingredient in our skin that keeps it moist, and sebum is Latin for “tallow”. Bó Balm has multiple uses: a concentrated daily moisturiser, soothing skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, using it as nappy rash cream on your little one, helping heal dry, cracked skin, using as a tattoo balm, or on sunburned skin.
Available in our 30ml travel size. we take great pride in the fact that each batch has been hand-rendered, hand-mixed, labelled by hand.

Why have I never heard of this?
Tallow was prized in the past, but as chemical products became more and more popular, tallow was left behind and forgotten. Now, as people are becoming more aware of the side-effects of harsh chemicals and man-made products, we find ourselves turning back to what nature had provided all along.

What is the Bó Balm difference?
A few things separate us from others;
1) Ingredients – We use only the finest tallow that comes from our own cattle on our organic farm in Tipperary. Organic grass-fed and grass-finished tallow has the best concentration of nutrients.
2) Texture. Our tallow is whipped, fluffy and easy to apply.
3) Handmade – Our ingredients are fresh and hand-made in small batches. This ensures high-quality and freshness.

Why use cow fat?
Because our bodies absorb it so easily. There is a vitamin profile in animal oils (A, D, E, and K) that is a one-of-a-kind combination that cannot be found in plant-based oils alone.

Where do we get our tallow? From our own farm.

How do I use it?
There are lots of ways. Most people use it on their faces and bodies as a general moisturizer. Others love to use for specific skin problems and irritations. We have clients who use our tallow for face cream, body moisturizer, bug bites, razor burn, rashes, burns, cellulite, stretchmarks, scars, dry skin, itchy skin, scalp treatment, cracked feet/heels, growing belly during pregnancy, aging spots, baby care and eczema.

Why use tallow?
It’s natural. There are no harsh chemicals that often result in negative side effects. As we age, we produce less oil in our skin, which helps us keep our youthful glow. Nowhere else can you find this acid profile with its nutrient rich properties. Vitamins A, D, E, and K, along with palmitoleic acid, conjugated linoleic acid, to nourish your skin and protect it.

Is it greasy/oily?
Our tallow balm easily soaks into the skin. It may feel a little greasy at first if you use a lot, but it will soak in a couple minutes. If your skin doesn’t absorb what you apply after several minutes, then you are applying too much. A little goes a long way.

What’s the shelf life?
We recommend using it within 12 months of opening.
