This all natural cold process bar is made from tallow. All the tallow in this soap was rendered from beef fat from the cows that we raised on our farm in Pawnee, Oklahoma. Tallow gives the soap a good lather and deeply conditions the skin. Lavender is great for many skin conditions and is soothing and calming. Tea tree has immense disinfectant and antimicrobial properties. These two essential oils blended together with the tallow deeply conditions and cleanses your skin.
