Oil Cleansing Method fans know the power of “like dissolves like,” so we take this concept to the next level with our Tallow Cleansing Balm!  Tallow is especially beneficial because of its biocompatible properties that closely match the oils on our own skin.  It makes sense then that tallow is the primary oil in this product.  We infuse our 100% grassfed tallow with organic flowers and lemon peel for a pleasing cleansing blend that’s perfect for all skin types.  We add a small amount of hydrogenated castor oil to create a solubilizing effect.  This means that this balm wipes away more cleanly, making the Oil Cleansing ritual a more user-friendly process for the less patient.

For the full experience, select our Kit.  Kits include a microfiber cloth and wooden spoon and comes in a durable eco friendly hemp + PEVA plastic zipper bag for easy travel.   


Directions:  Scoop out a quarter sized amount of Cleansing Balm and massage onto facial skin with circular strokes. Wet a soft cloth with hot, steamy water and lay it over face.  Relax and allow the cloth to cool.  Wet the cloth again with warm water and wipe away the oil, taking care not to scrub. Your face will be left soft and moisturized.  No need to follow with anything at all -- simply allow your skin to rest.


Natural Ingredients for Skincare and Their Benefits

Unrefined 100% Grassfed Tallow — Homegrown and dry rendered in-house, this exceptionally nutritious fat is the basis of all our products.  Stearic acid is a saturated fatty acid found naturally in high concentrations in tallow.  Stearic acid has a double function - as a surfactant and emulsifier.  Surfactants are compounds that lower the surface tension between two substances, such as two liquids or a liquid and a solid. In other words, surfactants reduce the surface tension so that water can penetrate the skin more easily. Stearic acid also acts as an emulsifier, meaning that it helps the product contain both oil and water without separating. Additionally, tallow is highly emollient and non-comedogenic, meaning it will not clog pores.  Read more about our tallow here.

Hydrogenated Castor Oil - Functions as a surfactant, a solubilizer, an emulsifier, an emollient, and a cleansing agent.  We include it in our Cleansing Balm to help this product rinse away easily, in addition to acting as a barrier against the loss of natural moisture.

Organic Lavender Flowers— We infuse this calming herb directly into our tallow! It is a counter irritant, increases circulation, and promotes a healthy mood.

Organic Calendula Flowers — Infused directly into our tallow! It promotes circulation and assists with wound healing and skin trauma thanks to its concentration of carotenoids and flavonoids.

Organic Rose Buds — Also infused right into our tallow.  Rose is antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, relaxing has as calming scent. It is moisturizing, toning and rejuvenates and replenishes to soften skin. 

Organic Lemon Peel — Contains a high amount of calcium, vitamin C, and citric acid, making it a natural detoxer, antibacterial, and gentle exfoliator. We also use it to lend a wonderful scent to our products.


About The Oil Cleansing Method

Dirt, pollution, and other impurities trapped in the pores contribute to acne, inflammation, and glycation (wrinkling). Contrary to popular belief, oil is necessary for skin health and can dissolve and dislodge these impurities when applied during the Oil Cleansing Method. Doing so is a relaxing way to restore skin's optimal barrier function and glow.

Great product! I really like the way my face feels after using…clean but not dry.

Cleansing Balm

Luxurious and nourishing! I don't need a moisturizer afterward. I wake up with my face feeling fresh and rejuvenated in the morning. Love it!

Still getting used to it.
Written by Tammy Edwards on May 8th 2024

Oil cleansing isn't new for me, but in the past I've used an argan oil based cleaner that mostly washed away. This leaves just the right amount of moisture in my face. With any change in cleasing routine, there's an adjustment period. My skin is still adjusting to the switch. Since my face is moisturized while I clean, I use less of my moisturizer too.

I love this product! Actually I love all the products I have used from Buffalo Gal! It is very hydrating and works well to remove makeup. I just warm it up in my hands and spread it on my face. I let it sit for a few minutes (although you do not need to ). Definitely would recommend!! As a bonus the customer service is amazing a quick to respond!

Wow the cleansing balm works wonders.

Better Than Crepe Erase!
Written by Christy R. on Feb 25th 2024

I’ve been using Crepe Erase for years. After using the cleansing balm for 1 week, I cancelled my crepe erase subsription. I’ve had more improvements in my skin on 1 month than I ever experienced with Crepe Erase. Thank you.

I was surprised at how well this cleans and softens my 65 year old skin. It is a much simpler routine than cleansing soap and water or other cleansers. I will continue to use this product.

I have used a lot of high quality plant based cleaning oils. But this tallow cleanser is hands down the best I have used so far. It works so well and doesn’t irritate my skin(especially around my eyes when getting off make up). Will purchase again! Thanks Buffalo Gal!!

Feels like silk
Written by Victoria on Nov 15th 2023

I love using this cleansing balm in the shower! It feels like silk going on! I let it sit on my face while I shower and then wipe off. My face feels great after using this. Not dry as it usually is after a shower.

Great Addition to the Korean skin cleansing...
Written by C STANLEY on Nov 14th 2023

I had sampled this product about 1 year ago and forgotten how much I loved it. It's the perfect product for a deep, but gentle, cleaning particularly after a long day or when I've been wearing makeup. I recommend starting with the cleansing balm (a little goes a long way) then I use the honey & milk soap (with the Konjac sponge) for a double cleansing. I finish with the Brighten Toner spray, quickly followed by the Night Balm and Eye Revive as well as a Tallow Bar on the neck & décolleté. Thank you, Shalley!
