Salves & Balms
Featuring farm-crafted, sustainably produced skin salves & lip balms handcrafted by myself & my Son on our small permaculture farm.
These items aren't vegan. They are crafted using an old fashioned ingredient that is available to us with an extremely low carbon footprint- rendered leaf lard from our pasture & forest raised rare breed heritage pigs. Rather than ship in ingredients that are sourced from all over the world, we've chosen to employ our main ingredient which is found right outside our front door.
This is the way our ancestors cared for their skin, before plant oils persisted. Lard, also known as pig tallow, strutto, manteca, or saindoux- is the closest to our skin's own natural sebum.
