Frequently Asked Questions
Although the ingredients are almost the same in both products, the ratio of oils differs considerably. The Face Butter is a much richer product and the essential oils are at a lower percentage. The body butter is a lighter, more spreadable product with a different make up of essential oils. You can use them interchangeably however they have been designed for purpose.
We offer an all natural product with no added fillers and water. As we don’t dilute the tallow any more than is absolutely necessary, it is harder under cold conditions and does takes a little getting used to. We could make it easy for you by turning it into a lotion by adding water or addition oil fillers but oil and water need an emulsifier and preservatives to mix. Adding an emulsifier would dilute the healing effect of our products and contradict our name Zero Bullshit.
As soon as the butter reaches body temperature it will turn in to a soft, spreadable easy application and will pull into the skin within minutes. Some customers put the closed tin in the bath with them or in the sun on a windowsill before use. As soon the weather warms up the product will become soft and spreadable on its own. It takes a little getting used to but we assure you will feel the difference and the benefits and will get used to using a natural product that is temperature sensitive.
Fortunately, there are several steps we can take to promote a healthy balanced skin microbiome.
- Gentle Cleansing, opt for mild, pH-balanced cleansers that do not strip the skin of all its natural oils. Use soap, shampoo and shaving foam that is free of preservatives and sodium lauryl sulfates and perfumes.
- Moisturise with a natural Tallow Skin Food, its all-natural fat profile is an almost identical match to the skin’s sebum. With no artificial preservatives it will feed the skins microbiome working like a probiotic for the skin. Even with its naturally moderate antibacterial and anti-fungal properties that help keep harmful pathogens at bay. It can also be used as a natural deodorant, while supporting a healthy skin microbiome.
- Limit Antibiotic and Antimicrobial and Steroid use: Use judiciously and only when prescribed by a healthcare professional.
Everyone has their own body care ritual there is no right or wrong way, however we suggest you scoop a teaspoon amount of Body Butter onto the palm of your hands. Rub hands together to activate the fats and bring to body temperature. Then rub all over body. For men with a lot of body hair, pat the butter all over the body and then rub in. Similarly for the Face Butter scoop a half teaspoon into the palm of your hands rub hands together to activate the fats and bring to body temperature then apply all over the face. For best result, allow for 5 minutes so that butter has a chance to absorb.
