At LOVESTOCK™, our goal is to introduce tallow to the beauty world and all skin types. Wherever you are in your journey to using LoveStock™ to build your best skin ever, rest assured we will always stay true to our mission and promise.
LoveStock™’s Mission is to provide nourishment (food) for your body’s largest organ: SKIN- all 25 square feet of it!
Many of you avoid processed food and seek out grass-fed meats, non-GMOs, and certified organic everything. We bring that same mentality forward to skin care when we choose our ingredients: 100% grass-fed certified organic tallow, kernel butters, and botanical oils so fresh you can consume them.
Within 30 seconds of application to your skin, cosmetic ingredients enter your bloodstream and become part of you.
LoveStock’s Promise to you is that our ingredients are:
Free from typical allergens: gluten, nuts, soy, milk
We intentionally select ingredients that are not derived from typical allergens. Our products are prepared with care in a gluten-free zone. If you or your child suffers from allergenic sensitivities of any kind, you are in our minds and hearts as we prepare our products. Please check our ingredients before use. And patch test before use as well.
Free from refining
ALL of our ingredients are unrefined. Refining includes bleaching, caustically removing vitamins and minerals, and deodorizing. Refining, a chemical process, often uses hexane as a solvent. Hexane is an extract of crude oil and is known for its long term toxicity. The refining process strips out the proteins that trigger a protective immune response; the denatured ingredient is often what causes a skin reaction.
Free from preservatives
Because all our oils contain anti-microbial/septic/fungal properties, we trust their stability. We select robust oils that are not hyper-sensitive to light and heat. Many "natural" products use vitamin E oil as a preservative but we did not because it is often derived from soy.
Free from synthetic fragrance and scents
We rely on botanical aromas to deliver an authentic scent: beeswax, raw honey, jojoba oil infused with organic vanilla seed pods, and certified organic or wild crafted essential oils by the amazing Floracopeia. Some products have no scent added at all to reduce the chance of sensitivity.*
If an ingredient is obtainable as certified organic, we have it- 95% of our ingredients are certified organic.
Pure enough for children*
We choose each ingredient carefully. Each ingredient is chosen to be safe and healthy, including pregnant mamas, those with sensitive and problem skin.
We also believe in:
Eco-friendly jarring and packaging
Our tin jars do not leach into the product like plastic ones can. The tin is fully reusable or recyclable like a can of beans. Our bio-based paperboard and cork tubes are lined with bio-wax manufactured by our favorite safe sunscreen maker Avasol (highly recommend). All shipping materials are recyclable and/or a fine carbon element for use in your compost pile.
All of our gorgeous yet tough labels are compostable! Please peel and compost! Made by Elevate Packaging.
Giving it back to celiac
LoveStock Derma-care is proud to have donated a portion of its earnings to Beyond Celiac 2017-2020.
Small Batch Beauty
Does 15-20 products per batch sound small to you? It's a labor of love, takes all day for gentle melting, proper cooling and mixing, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Humming mantras is our secret ingredient!
* Essential oils (EOs) are not recommended in large quantities for children below the age of 7. PROOF™ Skin Aliments, BUZZ™ Wax Shield AGLOW™ Honey Cleanser PISTIL™ Plant Mask are free from EOs.
Our penultimate goal and heartfelt mission is find a cure to celiac disease - see this blog.
