Hydro Balm

(16 customer reviews)



Hydro Balm’s aroma is mellow and lightly fragranced for a soft, comforting aura. The essential oils not only make the balm smell great and effectively neutralize the scent of the highly therapeutic tallow and fish oils, but they also stimulate the collagen to make the skin glow as well as aid the pores to relax.


Product Information

This is the only all-animal-oil skin care product available anywhere. The olive oil that is use in other Vintage Tradition products is replaced with Green Pasture®’s extremely therapeutic cod liver, skate liver, and butter oils. Our body knows what’s best when caring for our skin, and it produces its own skin care product called sebum. Because of the tallow and Green Pasture® oils in Hydro Balm, it has the same saturated fats (triglycerides) and squalene that make up the majority of our own sebum. There is no other skin care product that so closely resembles human sebum and can give you the healthy, great-looking skin you’re looking for. All of these factors make Hydro Balm Tallow with Green Pasture® Oils the best skin care product for whatever is ailing your skin, whether you are a woman or a man!

    It gets absorbed very well by the skin and won’t leave a greasy consistency. The smell of the essential oils is very nice and overall, I feel at peace with putting something in my skin completely natural and safe.

  2. Amy E. (verified owner)

    This tallow feels good on my very dry skin. The price is right and it calms my skin down when itchy. Thank you!

    I bought the sample for myself anf my son started using it for his acne and had to upgrade to the larger size. Works great for dry skin and acne. Skin is moisturized all day.

    Bought this for myself (53 yrs old) and I live in Canada where the forced air heating system really dries out the skin in the winter. Although I am trying it now in the summer, I feel well hydrated. I usually use several layers of creams and serums for my skin to feel hydrated. I also feel like my skin tone has evened out and I just feel prettier :). I also bought a sample size for my 22 daughter who has severe cystic acne and after using it for about 2 1/2 weeks, her skin seems to be improving. After a few times using it I’ve gone nose blind to the smell. First time using it, the smell was strong to me, second time using was much less and now, 2.5 weeks later, I don’t notice the smell anymore. I would definitely give it a try.

    Love it! Use it as my daily moisturizer and makeup remover. I also put it on my hands. I love everything about it!

  6. Jovita R. (verified owner)

    I absolutely love the tallow balm. I use it as a moisturizer. It keeps my face moisturized, soft and glowing. Works great with makeup. Doesn’t leave my face feeling greasy. I highly recommend.

  7. Karen S. (verified owner)

    I’ve just finished my first jar and made sure I had another one on hand. I use this solely on my face. I’m 68 with dry skin and fine to medium wrinkles. I’ve always purchased high end skin care. This little jar is amazing. A small amount goes a long way. I use it in the a.m. before my makeup and p.m. before bed. It’s a wonderful product.

  8. Jennifer M. (verified owner)

    I added the sample size to my order, and wow this product is amazing! What could be better than Green Pasture and Vintage Tradition together to make an amazing skin care product! A little goes a long way, and absorbs into the skin for soft, smooth, and nourished skin.

    My face tends to get very dry and Epic Glow is the only product I have found that keeps my face feeling soft and moisturized throughout the day. And, I don’t have to reapply it, it lasts the whole day for me. When winter comes and it gets cold and dry, I really appreciate it! I do have to take a dab and warm it up to apply it, but there is nothing else that will work as well for me!

    I usually always turn to Vintage Tradition when the cold Northeast wind and chill arrives and chaps my face, and nothing else comes close to helping. I used to buy mild manly, and it was great, it helped my dry skin survive the winter, but it wasn’t any better or worse than my other creams in terms of results. This time around I saw the Epic Glow and decided to give it a try. I really can’t believe how beautiful my skin is looking, in under a week of use!? It is luminous, smoother, glowy….Please don’t stop making this one!!

    I have been using the Pretty Girly balm for years, but this one takes it up a notch. Absorbs quickly – just a little goes a long way. I dab a little under my eyes after a long day at work, and it soothes my eyes like no other synthetic cream on the market.

    Fantastic, Fantastic product! I am very focused on healthy products for my family, and this balm hits all the marks. I have struggled with acne since having my son, and this product helps with dryness without causing breakouts or buildup. I use it on any rash my son develops, and it quickly eases and helps the irritation. We use it on lips also. The smell is very mild of cod oil, and I actually don’t mind the scent at all. It absorbs very quickly anyway, and the smell fades once it absorbes. This is my nightly cream for any problem spots and around the eyes. Really I can’t say enough. If you are concerned with what goes on your skin and therefore in your body, then these products are perfect! They actually work.

    I LOVE this product! It goes on like a dream! Ever since using animal oils on my skin my eyes are bright, skin is no longer dry, and I do not burn in the sun! I absolutely love vintage traditions and the quality of their products. So healing, nourishing, and luxurious. A must have skin care product!

    I had a small paper cut on my left thumb that started bothering me when I was on vacation. I didn’t have anything with me to use on it, not even a Bandaid. But I had brought the tallow balm that I had just purchased. So I tried rubbing some of it into the paper cut. It pretty much immediately stopped the pain I was feeling, and continued to do so for about 24 hours, even though I washed my hands during that time. After 24 hours, the cut started hurting again, so I reapplied it, and it wasn’t long before it was completely healed. I like the mild scent, too, not at all overpowering. Oh yes, I ordered this because this company is a sponsor of the Wise Traditions podcast, which I would also recommend.

    I’ve only been using the tallow balm for about a week now, but I have already noticed smoother, tighter and more radiant skin.

    I’ve come to look forward to using the product. Definitely will be buying a second jar of this!

  16. Janene

    I’ve been using this for a week now – it is stiff and has to be gently rubbed in and yes, it has an interesting but not bad smell – but wow! My skin is slurping it up. I’ve used so many different natural kinds of natural skin care from Aubreys to little specialty store brands, but my very dry skin is finally starting to feel nourished and moisturized. I had no idea tallow would actually work. I’m so glad I was adventuresome and chose to give it a try.
