Discover the power
of bone marrow

Bone marrow is the soft, fatty tissue found inside the bones of all mammals. It serves as the primary source where all red and white blood cells are created, making it one of the most vital components for immune function in the body. For thousands of years, humans have feasted on this superfood to gain its essential vitamins, minerals and fatty acids to help boost the body's overall immune function. There was even a study done that observed feeding bone marrow to children with leukemia tended to raise their white blood cell counts. (1)

The active ingredient thought to give these immune boosting properties was discovered to be alkylglycerols: a fatty lipid with potent antioxidant properties that significantly enhances cellular function by protecting cells from oxidative damage. Alkylglycerols are only present in hematopoietic organs (those involved with the creation of blood cells) with the highest concentration being in bone marrow, making it the most nutrient dense fat found in mammals.

what is tallow?

Tallow is defined as 'rendered animal fat,' and traditionally has always been rendered body fat, until now with Bonemade tallow balms derived from bone marrow fat. Traditional tallow has been cherished for generations as a deeply hydrating moisturizer because its fatty acid composition closely resembles our skin’s natural oil, known as sebum.

Like bone marrow tallow, traditional tallow is rich in vitamins A, D, E & K2 and deeply moisturizes to keep your skin hydrated all day and night. We use both bone marrow tallow and traditional tallow (body fat) in our balms.

Recently, tallow has surged in popularity as more people discover the most vibrant skin of their life after ditching synthetic moisturizers and switching to tallow.

why use bone marrow tallow?

It elevates traditional tallow with with potent antioxidants that superboost:

  • Skin barrier support
  • Protection against free radicals
  • Skin elasticity and firmness

Along with this, bone marrow has 5x more Vitamin E than traditional tallow, higher levels of minerals like calcium, a more favorable fatty acid profile that penetrates deeper into the skin's dermis (its deeper layer), and is a cleaner fat that stores fewer toxins.

Bioavailable nutrients that deeply hydrate the bodies largest organ - the skin

Bonemade tallow is a bioavailable source of essential nutrients found nowhere else in nature. Bioavailable nutrients are those that the body can easily absorb and utilize to effectively nourish cells.

Bone Marrow Tallow

We leverage bone marrow, the most nutrient dense fat found in cows loaded with bioavailable vitamins, minerals and unique fatty acids only present in hematopoietic organs (those involved in the creation of blood cells) that deliver potent nutrition to our bodies largest organ - the skin. Tallow has been used for generations due to its similarity to our skin’s natural sebum, but now with tallow derived from bone marrow we can feed our skin one of nature’s most precious superfoods.


Get our health back on track

It’s no secret that health is steadily declining in the modern world. With chemicals, pollutants, hormone disruptors and processed ingredients circulating throughout our environment now more than ever, it’s imperative that we go back to the basics and empower ourselves with 100% pure and potent natural products. Bone marrow tallow does exactly that.

no toxins, chemicals, or hormone disruptors

For years, large corporations have misled us into using cheap synthetic chemicals on our skin.

In "Estrogeneration," Ph.D. Anthony Jay delves into how so-called "healthy" skincare products contain
toxic parabens and phthalates, which are absorbed by our skin and end up in our bloodstream and urine.

These toxins disrupt our hormonal balance, leading to illness, impacting fertility, increasing the risk of cancer,
and ultimately diminishing our true potential.

To protect our bodies and achieve our best selves, we must only use products on our skin that are safe to ingest.

The skin acts as a living, breathing entity. It's time we treat it as such.

Tallow, known for its natural effectiveness, now made from bone marrow - a powerful skin superfood - provides
our skin with everything it needs and more to flourish in our ever changing modern environment.
