Lumina Tallow Soap

  • $14.00

My great grandmother Lumina used to make soap using local fats such as tallow and lard. Her soap recipe has inspired me to start using more bioregional fats. We made a limited edition batch of tallow soap to commemorate the traditional ways of our grandmothers. The release of our "Lumina" soap kicks off our new venture into creating a line of ancestral tallow based skincare products that we will be releasing throughout the year. 

We render our own tallow using suet that is 100% grass fed and grass finished from pasture raised cows from the Ottawa valley. We render the suet once, using the dry render method and by using the lowest heat possible to render into tallow. This labor-intensive and time-consuming process creates a profound nutrient dense product that can be applied onto the skin.

Tallow contains high concentrations of vitamins and antioxidants such as vitamins A, D, E and K. It is also full of lipids needed for healthy skin and helps to produce rich, creamy lather that is gently cleansing and wonderful for the skin. This bar has a light rosy & chocolaty scent. 

Adeps bovis (tallow), Olea europaea (olive oil), Cocos nucifera (coconut oil), Theobroma cacao (cocoa butter), Ricinus communis (castor seed oil), distilled water, sodium hydroxide, Pelargonium roseum leaf oil (rose geranium oil).

Use to wash hands, face or body and keep dry between uses.

Smells great!

The bars have nice heft like they will be long lasting. But I haven’t used it yet.

Lovely soap!

This soap is very gentle on my skin, lathers up so nicely, and is just lightly rose scented. Beautiful product that i will definitely buy again!

Luxurious texture

Once again, Boreal Folk creates a winner! I use all of their products and love each of them, where this new soap is no different. The beef tallow actually makes my skin so soft that I don't really need body lotion after a shower when I use it. For comparison, I have used goats milk soap before that has a similar effect, but this soap is actually a creamier texture that makes it the most luxurious bar soap I've ever tried! The rose scent is subtle and not overpowering.
