Top 3 Paleo Ingredients Revealed!
The term ‘Paleo’ refers to a way of sustaining life that mimics how our ancestors would have lived. That means using the same resources today that they would have had access to in their day. The Paleo diet consists mainly of fish, grass fed pastured meats and eggs, organically grown vegetables and fruit, mushrooms, roots and nuts. But you don’t have to follow the Paleo Diet to see results from these nutritious Skin Superfoods.
This popular lifestyle trend has filtered down into the beauty domain as more and more people search for ways to improve their healthy glow. When it comes to your beauty routine, look for products that contain the highest quality, nutrient-dense Paleo ingredients you can find. And remember, if you can eat it, you can wear it and swear by it! Read more about the Paleo Beauty trend sweeping the nation here: ZLiving, Elle, Allure, and DailyMail (to name a few).
1. Grass Fed Tallow
Good quality tallow is derived by slowly heating the fatty tissue of grass-fed cows. This results in clean, pure, high-vitamin oil with a fatty acid profile similar to that of human cell membranes. It is ultra rich in the same kinds of lipids that are found naturally in youthful, healthy looking skin. Grass-fed tallow also contains fat-soluble Vitamins A, D, E & K and Vitamin B12. It is intrinsically balanced by nature, with no further improvement or enrichment needed. These properties, including Triglycerides, which allow for the easy absorption of nutrients, as well as antioxidants, provide the key elements we need to maintain healthy, sturdy, cell integrity and tone.

2. Virgin Coconut Oil
Used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to soften skin and treat Eczema and Psoriasis, this versatile oil also protects the skin against environmental damage and promotes cellular healing. Coconut oil is antibacterial and supports the skin, giving it a more youthful, healthy appearance. It also keeps skin supple and helps to reduce the “sag” effect.

3. Raw Honey
Honey in its unadulterated form has an abundance of health properties. It is composed of natural Alpha-hydroxy Acids, such as Gluconic acid, that gently exfoliate dead cells. These acids also increase elasticity, balance out oily skin, stimulate collagen production, and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Raw honey is made up of both anti-aging vitamins and minerals that help nourish and heal the skin, brighten the complexion, even out skin tone, and lighten scars and age spots.
