Natural Ingredients for Skincare and Their Benefits

Unrefined 100% Grassfed Buffalo Tallow — Dry rendered in-house, this exceptionally nutritious fat is the basis of all our products.  Lab tests reveal that our water buffalo tallow contains a significant level of retinol.  Each 3.3 oz jar of this product contains approximately 100 IU of this natrually occuring retinol.  Be sure to read about the amazing benefits of our tallow here.

Emu Butter — This rich oil is high in Vitamins E and K and deeply absorbed in the skin. It’s also a powerful analgesic and anti-inflammatory.  Emu oil has a balanced fatty acid profile, lending it to many anti-aging properties.  It is also hypoallergenic! 

Ostrich Butter - Ostrich oil also has a balanced fatty acid profile with many of the same attributes as emu oil, with the addition of Vitamin C.  It is known for supporting faster cellular turnover and relieving burns and irritation.  It is slightly richer than emu and the two together make a wonderful texture that absorbs rapidly.

Non-nano Zinc Oxide — Not only is Zinc Oxide nourishing and anti inflammatory, it is known as a natural form of topical sun protection. Zinc Oxide is not absorbed into the skin but provides a reflective film on top. Plus, it’s safe for ocean reefs!  Read more about zinc oxide below.

Direct Trade Coffee — One of our favorite skin-healing secrets. Caffeine tightens fine lines, evens tone, inhibits growth of cancer cells, prevents inflammation, reduces puffiness, dehydrates fatty cells, minimizes the appearance of cellulite and creates a smoothing effect, aids circulation while restricting blood vessels, thus reducing redness including rosacea, acts as a powerful antioxidant and moisturizer, calms irritated skin caused by sun damage. Coffee is really a powerhouse for your skin, and we source it from direct-trade sources that protect workers and the environment.

*Note: We cannot make any claims regarding the SPF rating on this product with out appropriate FDA regulated lab testing.  Zinc Oxide assists with UV protection by reflecting and refracting the sun’s rays.  We’re confident you will receive some sun protection from this product, approximately the equivalent of 15-20 SPF.  Please use at your own discretion.


More information about Zinc Oxide:

When applied topically, Zinc Oxide remains on the skin’s surface, forming a coating that functions as a protective agent, notably against the harmful effects of UV radiation and environmental irritants. This makes it an ideal additive to skin care products, such as lotions, creams, and ointments, especially those meant for application before exposure to the elements as well as those meant to soothe or prevent itching, infections, and skin damage.

Zinc Oxide helps to:

  • Protect against damage caused by overexposure to broad spectrum ultraviolet rays (UVA/UVB)
  • Maintain the appearance of a rejuvenated complexion by enhancing collagen synthesis and reducing the rate of developing signs of aging, such as fine lines and dark spots
  • Regenerate connective tissue as well as new skin
  • Moisturize and restore the health of chapped skin
  • Diminish the appearance of enlarged pores
  • Facilitate the healing of wounded or otherwise damaged skin
  • Calm inflammation
  • Soothe itching, burning, inflammation, redness, dryness, peeling and pain
  • Balance the skin’s natural pigmentation
  • Regulate the production of sebum and interstitial fluid
  • Increase the number of other active and beneficial additives that penetrate the skin, when combined with other products that have rejuvenating effects
  • Enable the healing of diaper rash by creating a protective barrier between the skin and the diaper
  • Allow the oily substances in formulations to penetrate the skin
  • Naturally facilitate the healing of scrapes, abrasions, burns, irritation, rashes, sores, and ulcers

Love the moisture this product provides. My skin feels nourished and protected from the sun.

Awesome product!
Written by Lori on May 24th 2023

I love how well this product moisturizes my skin but absorbs fast enough that I can apply makeup on top. It doesn't leave a white cast and I appreciate that my skin is protected from UV rays as I work and drive (a lot!)

Fabulous day balm
Written by Sandra on May 18th 2023

I love the creamy texture of this excellent day balm with zinc oxide for sun protection. In the summer, it might arrive with a thin layer of luxurious oil on top, but it quickly firms up overnight to give us an excellent moisturizer.

Doesn't leave a white cast on my dark skin. It absorbs well and feels light on my skin, even in the LA heat. Love it lots!

Thankful for this Day Balm!
Written by Amy on Dec 29th 2020

Just received my second bottle of day balm and used every drop of the first, as sparingly as possible! It is a wonderful, natural product. Works well under makeup and doesn't irritate my sensitive (rosacea) skin. I usually add one drop of essential oil for added benefit and natural fragrance. It's more expensive than I'm used to paying for moisturizer but not unreasonable considering the ingredients; and I was able to stretch the first bottle to last almost 3 months. Thank you!

Great under foundation

This goes great under foundation without leaving a white cast. Love the clean and beneficial organic ingredients as well.

Love this product!

Skin so soft
Written by Michelle Rodriguez on Oct 9th 2019

I love this day balm it leaves my face so smooth and soft. I have used many other types of moisturizers in the past. But they just do not last all day and wind up leaving my skin greasy. But with this balm I no longer have to worry about using a moisturizer and sun block separate. It;s an all in one treat for my face every morning. That leaves your skin so smooth and hydrated. So happy to have found your products before the winter months. That is the most challenging time for me as my skin gets so dry and burned from the cold. This year for the first time I am confident that this product will keep my skin healthy and soft. And you only need very little so it will last a good while. Such a great investment for you skin.

this is a great dual purpose moisturizer

I so happy to have found a day cream with SPF that my skin can tolerate and which doesn't feel heavy on my face. I have extremely sensitive skin, but it loves this product.
