BALM OF GILEAD
Balm of Gilead was established in 2013. At the re-awakening of the tallow-based skin care, a small family company stumbled upon the overwhelming benefit of tallow. The first product was simply made by necessity: a baby balm for a good friend’s newborn. The result was almost too good to be true. They immediately began researching, extensively formulating and testing new products. Standards of purity were established with sound, scientific protocols. Their tallow comprised the base of every balm, yielding a greater penetration and absorption. It was something people could feel the moment they tried the products. With Certified Paleo™ products and Autoimmune Protocols, grass-fed tallow emerged as a natural and effective moisturizer for those with heightened autoimmunity. Nutrient-dense with vitamins, tallow is a true wonder in skin care. It is not a new ingredient, but rather an ancient one – it is time-tested and proven through hundreds of years. Our balm is made of the finest ingredients, rich in critical vitamins and nourishing oils. We care about our products and about the people that use them. Our employees, families, and friends use our balm every day. As our society has become increasingly aware of harmful, and often unnecessary, chemicals, additives, and preservatives, both in diet and in body care, Balm of Gilead has emerged as a safe and effective brand of skin care. Only the finest ingredients are chosen for all our products. We formulate and manufacture them ourselves. Purity is of the utmost importance and the ingredients make the difference: Grass-Fed Tallow, Organic Beeswax, Avocado Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Lanolin, Manuka Honey, & Rosemary. Nothing artificial. Nine products. $10.19 – $24.69.
