Tallow + Steel was founded with one goal: create nature-inspired grooming products using the highest quality natural and organic ingredients.
One of the main ingredients in our shave soap is tallow (rendered beef fat). We source suet (beef fat) from local, pasture-raised, 100% grass-fed cattle which receive no hormones or antibiotics. We then render the tallow ourselves, in-house. While this is more costly and labour-intensive than using commercially available tallow, (which usually comes from industrial factory-farms), it allows us to support farms that caretake the environment and raise animals in an ethical manner. As we firmly believe in sustainable and organic farming practices, we use organic ingredients whenever available. Choosing organic agriculture promotes a less toxic environment for all living things, and helps support the environment.
Scents From Nature
Our scents are created using only natural fragrance materials - those extracted from botanicals. This means aromatic extracts like essential oils (from steam distillation), absolutes and resins (from solvent extraction), CO2 extracts (from supercritical carbon dioxide extraction), or infusions. Our scents are exotic and adventurous, natural and complex. They were created to provide an experience - to invoke thoughts and memories, or to carry your senses to a far away place.
For each product, we source our aromatic materials from the region after which the product is named. We have partnered with a charity from several of these regions, and we donate $1 per product sold to that respective charity. Please visit the product pages for more information on the charities we support.
Canada: For shipments within Canada, customers have the choice between Canada Post Expedited or Xpresspost. We offer free shipping on orders above $95 CAD via Canada Post Expedited.
USA: For shipments to the USA, customers have the choice between Canada Post Small Packet Air or DHL Express. Small Packet Air is inexpensive, but offers no tracking. The usual delivery time is 2 weeks, but shipping delays are sometimes experienced. DHL Express is the recommended service to the USA since shipments are tracked, and arrive reliably in 1-2 days. We offer free shipping to the USA on orders above $95 USD, via DHL Express.
International: All International shipments are sent via DHL Express. We recognize this service is more expensive than the postal system, but it is simply much faster and more reliable. We feel it is essential that orders arrive promptly and be trackable from our doorstep to yours. Please see the header on the top of our website for the current free shipping threshold to Europe.
We offer a small selection of cohesive products to ensure consistency and quality. We don't maintain multiple product lines or offer different product formulas; you can ensure that every product you purchase from Tallow + Steel is the finest product we are able to make. We trust that you will enjoy the quality and performance of our products, and their unique natural scents, while knowing that you are supporting sustainable, environmental, and organic practices.
