Put fat on your face. Now, that sounds a little odd, I know. Massaging nutrient-dense natural oils into your sensitive skin, enjoying the essential oil aromatherapy, reveling in the softening glow that comes literally from your pores: now THAT sounds great. So here is this jar from our friends at FATCO, ready for you to open, smell, and smear. Lotion will never be the same (or even acceptable) again, once you've gone fat.
Decadent, luxurious, rich things come in small packages like this jar of Body Butta. Diminutive in size but not in potency, this essential fat formula is your skin's new best friend. Made from organic tallow, healing plant oils, and soothing botanticals, FATCO's Body Butta is phat. Um, I mean fat. Both.
This Calming blend of lavender and clary sage will soothe your mind while your skin soaks up the love of five different gentle oils: coconut, olive, cocoa, shea, and avocado. Add to that FATCO's foundational fat from grass-fed organic tallow and the luxury just keeps building. I massage this into dry elbows, gently smudge it into the sun-baked tips of my ears, and smooth it over the well-earned laugh lines on my face. Anywhere, anyplace. This jar of rich butta will make you rethink moisturizer and toss all of those lotions right into the bin.
When you use this body butta, your troubles won't melt away. But they'll be balanced out by the knowledge that you're doing something calming and good for your body. Something good for the house your brain walks around in, that brain that worries and frets about things needing "done". This helps soothe that thinky head, just a little.
Wow this stuff is dense and decadent! It starts with a good healthy dollop of grass-fed beef tallow into this jar, the nutrient-dense base for a laundry list of other healthy oils, from avocado to olive. Every one of them organic, every one of them nutrient-dense.
You *could* make something like this yourself at home, or you could just smear a little tallow or coconut oil on your skin each day. But would it smell as good as this? Would it have the extra nutrients from plant oils, and the perfectly sized jar to keep everything together? Nope. What you receive from FATCO is the unique combination of those oils, plus essential aroma oils, everything formulated and tested with care and rigor.
Why does it seem so fresh and awesome? Simple! First, FATCO believes that only nourishing, healthy and natural substances should be applied to your skin. Therefore, they use only the highest quality ingredients in all of their products. You can rest assured that when the label says "Natural," that it REALLY means Natural! All of FATCO's products are made by hand in small batches to ensure maximum freshness.
Healthy, ‘toned’ skin cells with sufficient saturated and monounsaturated fats would undoubtedly make for healthy, toned skin. Interestingly, tallow fat is typically 50 to 55 percent saturated, just like our cell membranes, with almost all of the rest being monounsaturated, so it makes sense that it would be helpful for skin health and compatible with our cell biology.
Another strong indication of tallow’s compatibility with our skin biology is its similarity to sebum, the oily, waxy matter that lubricates and waterproofs our skin. Indeed, the word “sebum” actually means “tallow” in Latin and began to be used in this biological sense around the year 1700. The sebaceous glands, which secrete sebum, are found in greatest abundance on the face and scalp, but they are distributed over all of our skin except on the palms and soles. Sebum is made up of lipids (fats) of which 41 percent are in the form of triglycerides, and the lipids of tallow are principally in the form of triglycerides, which is how fatty acids are usually configured in nature.
Used by tropical peoples for hundreds of years, coconut oil is full of skin loving fatty acids and nutrients. It allows the skin to breathe (unlike petroleum) and also is full of antioxidants, minerals, and aids absorption of vitamins. Find it as part of the base and key lubricants in this Body Butta.
The potency of essential oils when added to a luscious neutral oil base like this jar makes for little bursts of aromatherapy, both at the time of application as well as later on over a few hours.
Scoop out about a quarter-size drop and massage into your skin, taking your time. This stuff goes a long way, so let it melt and spread the warmth all over the places that need it most.
Please take care as to not get any moisture/water into the jar. There's No Preservatives, so introducing moisture to the product can create an environment that is conducive to bacteria and mold growth. Always wash your hands thoroughly before using the product, and replace lid tightly to maintain freshness.
A simple question: 'what the heck is in my skincare products?' is what led to the creation of FATCO. Here's how they describe it:
"I'm sure some of you are a lot like us... You CARE about the food that you put into your body because you KNOW that it effects the way you feel, look and function! And you know that good food choices will keep you Healthy for many years to come! So WHY don't we put the same amount of thought and effort into the stuff that we put ONTO our body!?!?
We've learned that if you wouldn't EAT something, then you shouldn't put it on your skin! But in our quest for pure, raw, natural skincare products, we didn't find anything that fit our criteria ...so we decided to make our own! And this is how FATCO Skincare was born!"
"Hi, I’m Cassy. Mechanical Engineer turned Skincare Engineer. Nice to meet you!
I think that our society is at a crossroads. For a long time, we’ve sustained ourselves on allowing others to be responsible for our health. Now we’re at the point where we’ll pretty much eat anything that has the word “natural” on the package. And if you look around you can see the effects (obesity, heart disease etc).
FATCO specializes in making Organic, Natural, REAL skin care products that aren't full of preservatives, chemicals & toxins. We believe in using healthy fats to nourish our skin instead of dry it out! We use plant based fats like organic coconut oil and raw shea butter, as well as tallow from pastured, grass-fed cows."
We use absolutely no artificial preservatives in our products. We believe that we should treat our skincare products like we treat the food that we feed our bodies. We personally try to stay away from pre-packaged foods with long shelf lives, so why would the rules change for your skincare products? Most of our products have a shelf life of anywhere form 6 months to 1 year, and we recommend customers to use these products within the recommended times on the bottle.
