Gardener's Charcoal Tallow Bar Soap
Gardener's tallow soap is great for removing dirt and oils from hardworking hands. It is also great for those working in the kitchen, artists, and artisans as it helps remove food odors, inks, paint, resins, and grease, leaving the skin clean and hydrated. It also features coconut shell activated charcoal for penetrative cleansing, and a curated blend of soothing essential oils to alleviate discomfort from cuts, scratches or other external wounds. All soaps are cold-processed, cured for about 1-2 months, and are made using centuries-old techniques.
Using high quality, fully traceable local ingredients, Summer Solace soaps and balms are hand-crafted from a balanced blend of pasture-raised Northern California tallow, Séka Hills extra virgin olive oil, and whole plant Calendula.
Ingredients: Organic tallow from California pasture-raised Cattle, organic California-grown marigold (Calendula), Séka Hills extra-virgin olive oil, organic hydrosol of rose (Rosa), organic hydrosol of orange (Citrus sinensis) blossom, California-harvested sea salt, organic activated coconut (Cocos nucifera)charcoal, organic fennel (Foeniculum) essential oil, organic cedar (Cedrus) essential oil.
What is tallow?
Tallow is rendered suet, which is the hardy fat that is taken from the inside cavity of the cow that is closest to the loins and kidneys. Summer Solace uses rendered suet from grass-fed cattle raised on organic fertile pasture. The rendered suet yields buttery-soft tallow that is then infused with other ingredients to create nourishing products. Tallow was commonly used as a skin protectant for centuries before the introduction of Petrochemichals. Tallow is natural, absorbable, and rich in fat-soluble vitamins and minerals A, D, K, E and B12. It is safe for all skin-types and for babies, children, and adults.
Summer Solace Tallow is a small, family-owned business dedicated to the production of slow-made, deeply nourishing, organic tallow-based skincare and home goods. Established in the Spring of 2014 by chef and gardener, Megan Bre Camp.
Megan was born and raised in Alaska and now lives in Oakland, California with her family in a converted storefront which she also uses as her workspace. Her indigenous roots in the Central Highlands of Vietnam and the mountains of northern Philippines, respect for animals, the environment, and a strong spiritual connection to nature as a whole are woven into her genetic makeup and inspired her intentions for Summer Solace Tallow.
