Desert Rose Red Clay Tallow Bar Soap
Delicately floral with an earthy touch, Desert Rose is a full-fat soap starring extra gentle and highly mineralized French rose clay, hydrosols of rose and orange blossom, sweet-scented rose geranium, and an exotic, warm sweet amber melange oil.
Crafted from the rendered fat of California pasture-raised cattle, Fair Trade, organic cacao butter, and blended with truly extra-virgin olive oil grown by the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, this rich and hydrating tallow soap makes for an especially luscious cleansing experience.
Use to cleanse, exfoliate, and polish skin of all types. A mild kaolin clay, French rose clay gently draws dirt and oil to the skin's surface, helps to support and strengthen skin cells, and increases circulation.
Ingredients: Saponified Tallow (fat) from Northern California regeneratively-raised Cattle, organic California-grown marigold flowers (Calendula), organic Peruvian fair-trade cacao (Theobroma cacao) butter, organic rose (Rosa)hydrosol, organic orange (Citrus sinensis) blossom hydrosol, Celtic Sea Salt®, French rose clay, organic rose geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) essential oil, and sweet amber melange (vanilla, ambrette, labdanum blend; precious and rare.)
Red color varies due to natural, seasonal red clay from France.
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.
