Ancestral Cosmetics Tallow Sun Balm is created for those moments in the sun that you just don’t want to miss out on.

Made with grass-fed beef tallow and 20% non-nano Zinc Oxide it acts as a physical barrier on the skin by reflecting and refracting UV rays from the skin. It's powered by antioxidants and beta carotenes from our blend of cold-press oils to even further protect your skin from oxidation.

Our Tallow Sun Balm is formulated without any toxic chemicals or chemical filters usually found in sun products. We use only truly natural ingredients, grass-fed tallow, cold-pressed oils and pure essential oils. It is natural, safe and glides perfectly on the skin. 

Non-nano Zinc Oxide acts as a physical barrier in sun care and because of its non-nano nature, it is not absorbed in the skin but it sits on the skin and reflects, refracts and to some extent, absorbs UV rays. Our formulation contains 20% Zinc Oxide.

100% Grass-Fed Beef Tallow aka the best moisturiser in the world. It restores and retains the skin's natural moisture and offers unprecedented benefits for the skin. It deeply nourishes and hydrates the skin.

Cocoa Butter is natural butter extracted from cacao beans growing on the cacao trees. It is one of the best natural ingredients to use in sun care being rich in Vitamin E which is a powerful antioxidant protecting the skin from oxidative damage. Due to its fatty acid content, it is deeply hydrating and it prevents the skin from drying out.

Olive Oil has been used for thousands of years in sun care. It contains antioxidants, including Vitamin E and polyphenols, which help keep the skin moisturized and protected.

Red Raspberry Seed Oil is known for its ability to naturally absorb UVA and UVC rays so it’s perfect to use in suncare. It has a high content of Vitamin E and Vitamin A and is rich in beta-carotene. It protects and prevents oxidative damage on the skin.

Sweet Almond Oil is a deeply moisturising oil packed with vitamins and antioxidants E and K to keep your skin protected and hydrated in the sun.

Vitamin E - our Tallow Sun Balm is additionally enriched with the powerful antioxidant Vitamin E to offer full-blown protection while in the sun. This powerful antioxidant can stop or reverse the damage free radicals cause to cells in our skin. The body stores Vitamin E in the skin in both the outer epidermis and the deeper dermis layers and applying it on the skin means higher protection and reduced inflammation.

Our unique blend of skin-beneficial pure essential oils of Frankincense, Myrrh and Neroli will instantly transport you to the Mediterranean beaches.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FAQ

What SPF is Sun Balm?

Because our product was not officially tested for exact SPF we cannot claim any SPF on it. But to give you some idea, our Sun Balm is formulated with 20% Zinc Oxide and every 1% Zinc Oxide is equivalent to around 1,5 SPF units so our Sun Balm should offer protection equivalent to that of 30 SPF factor. Keep in mind that the balm should be reapplied every two hours and after swimming or intense activity to maintain its effectiveness.

When should I use Sun Balm?

We believe that the sun is one of the most important human needs and it’s required for optimal health. A healthy lifestyle, a proper diet without seed oils, eating foods high in vitamins A, E and C, gradual exposure to the sun and respectful sun behaviour should be enough for most people to never burn or need any type of sunscreen.

But there are times when you have to or want to spend more time in the sun and when sun protection is needed. We recommend using Tallow Sun Balm for those days when you cannot avoid prolonged sun exposure. Use it in combination with other protection like hats and white clothing.

How to use Sun Balm?

Apply generously to your face and body 30 minutes before sun exposure.

For prolonged sun exposure reapply every 2 hours and after swimming or intense activity. This is physical sun protection so generous amounts and regular reapplication is needed to prevent sunburn. For even better protection use hats and white clothing.

Is it leaving a white cast?

Every sun product formulated with this amount of non-nano zinc oxide will leave some level of white cast and that’s inevitable. We have formulated it to be gliding and easily melted to the skin so the white cast is less visible.

To minimise the white cast, apply in a couple of thinner layers by gently massaging it into the skin until it’s fully absorbed.

Can I use it with Tanning Oil?

Yes, you can combine and layer Sun Balm and Tanning Oil.

If in a strong sun and want to protect your skin from sunburn, apply Sun Balm first and let it absorb into the skin. Then apply Tanning Oil over Sun Balm.

If tanning is your priority, apply Tanning Oil first and after appropriate tanning time (according to your personal sun tolerance) apply Sun Balm for protection.

I Love this Lotion!

I took a chance and purchased the regular lotion, as I wanted something all natural and actually good for my skin. I work outside and my skin takes a beating.
I liked it so much that I ordered the one with zinc. After spending all day outside, my face didn't burn! I'll be continuing to order both in the future.
