What is tallow?

Tallow is made from the highest quality fat taken from healthy, grass-fed cattle. It's biological composition is very consistent with that of our own skin, delivering a host of naturally-occurring vitamins and minerals. Our proprietary formula pairs this tallow with other beneficial ingredients to create the ideal moisturizer for any skin type.

The Pluma Story

Pluma Skincare began with the realization that most skincare products, even those labeled 'natural' or 'organic', are full of questionable ingredients that are not easily understood, or easily pronounced! Louisa, Pluma's co-founder and most talented creator, began a quest to find better options. Somewhere along the way, she made a discovery that changed everything. Tallow.

Tallow is a remarkably stable and pure ingredient made from suet, the highest quality fat found in healthy, grass-fed cattle. For centuries, traditional cultures have revered this part of the animal as a highly valuable food source. In addition to providing a host of fat-soluble vitamins, tallow's saturated fat content is nearly biologically identical to that of our own skin. This is why time and time again, we hear from our customers with various skin conditions about the healing power that comes with regular use of Pluma tallow balm.

Our vision for Pluma Skincare is to create tallow-based products that nourish, repair, and protect the skin. Remember - our skin is a highly absorbent organ, and most people are unaware of the amount of toxins present in many modern skincare products. With Pluma, we focus on using clean, unadulterated, minimally-processed ingredients in everything we produce. We hope you will join us on this journey and become part of our story!
