Fat Face Skin Care Review

Skin is the largest organ in our integumentary system. Everything that we put onto our skin gets absorbed and processed by our body. The majority of skin care products that we find on the market contain ingredients from vague sources and usually unpronounceable! Since we don’t know the source of those products then why should we allow our skin to absorb them? I don’t know about you, but I want my largest organ to absorb pure, raw, and natural.

Recently I discover a new natural skincare product line called FatCo (formerly known as Fatface). The word “fat” really arouse my curiosity and of course, I had to do some research and decided to give it a try.

What is FatCo Skin Care?

FatCo is a woman-owned company, founded by Cassey Burnside. Cassy’s passion for clean eating inspired her business in making clean skincare products. For years, Cassy practiced the philosophy that a health-conscious diet can improve your life. This connection between food and well-being led her on a quest to find skincare products developed for the same benefits. To her, feeding your skin is just as important as feeding your appetite — it’s all about healthy and nutritious choices. When she couldn’t find exactly what she was searching for, Cassy decided to take matters into her own hands by crafting good-for-you products from her own home, and that’s when Fatco was born! Tallow and other naturally occurring ingredients are the basis for FATCO’s products — upholding the idea that just like clean dieting, clean hygiene is a sound approach to living well.

What is tallow?

If you are not familiar with tallow, tallow is a hard fatty substance derived from the fat of grass-fed cows, mutton, and bison. It almost looks like a hybrid of coconut oil and butter, but with a dry, waxy texture. And yep, and that is the main ingredient in Fatco! Sure, slathering beef fat all over your body may not sound appealing at first, but don’t knock it ‘til you try it.

Benefits of using tallow on your skin:

Believe it or not, tallow is the original ‘body butter’. For centuries, humans used tallow in skin moisturizers and healing balms, but unfortunately, the topical application of these fats seemed to stop around the same time that animal fats disappeared from our diets.

The structure of our cell membranes is made up of approximately 50% saturated fats, which is very similar to the percentage of saturated fatty acids in tallow. Fatty acids are also the building blocks of healthy skin cells, which makes them an important nutrient for skin repair and regeneration.

Tallow from grass-fed cows has a ton of natural, nourishing benefits. It contains the abundant natural fat-soluble activators, vitamins A, D, E, and K, which are all necessary for general health and skin health.

Let’s talk about the Fatco Skin Care products:

Fatco Toner:

An all natural toner to wipe away the day! It contains natural ingredients like raw apple cider vinegar and witch hazel to help balance the skin’s pH levels and is infused with essential oils from lavender and rosemary to help heal and regenerate skin.

 

Ingredients: Distilled Water, Rose Water, Witch Hazel*, Raw Apple Cider Vinegar*, Vegetable Glycerine*, Aloe Vera Gel**, Lavender Essential Oil, Rosemary Essential Oil. *Denotes an organic ingredient.** Denotes a non-GMO Ingredient.

Pros:

  • Love the lavender scent, however, there is a strong apple cider vinegar smell at first. As apple cider vinegar scent fades, the lavender scent will kick in and gets stronger. Not in an overwhelming way!
  • Keeps your skin moist, soft and smells amazing.
  • Helps with acne.

Cons:

  • A strong apple cider vinegar scent when first apply (you might not mind it or it might kill you).

Fatco Stank Stop

Most commercial deodorants contain substances like aluminum, preservative, fragrance, and have been linked to health concerns like cancer and infertility. Those yellow stains on your white t-shirt around your armpits area (very gross!…) are actually caused by aluminum. I don’t know about you, but no thanks!

Stank Stop is made from a combination of antibacterial properties from organic coconut oil with odor absorbing powder and aluminum-free baking soda. Unlike other deodorants out on the market, FatFace threw in some Grass Fed Tallow and Shea butter to better moisture those pits and provide a natural feel. Lovely – I know!

Ingredients: Coconut Oil*, Arrowroot Powder*, Shea Butter*, Tallow from Organic Grass-fed Cows, Baking Soda, Non-Nano Zinc Oxide, Beeswax, Lavender Essential Oil, Clary Sage Essential oil. *Denotes An Organic Ingredient.

Pros:

  • If you use it long enough, you will notice it will get rid of your razor burn and any ingrown hair as well.
  • Keep your pits moist and smell good with no yellow stains!
  • The essential oil in this product not only keep us smelling good but also helps reduce excessive sweating (which is why Clary sage is added to the deodorant). This does NOT mean this stuff will make you stop from sweating.
  • This product contains arrowroot powder which will help soak up the extra sweat from workouts. Yayyy!

Cons:

  • You may need to reapply after a few hours. Varies depends on the person.
  • If you have allergies to lavender, this product is NOT for you.

Fatco Cleansing Oil

Most of us use the traditional face wash cleanser or makeup remover to wipe the day away. When we use the face wash cleanser, it also washes away the healthy oils that’s our skin needs and leave us with a dry feeling. Makeup removers are the most popular way for people to remove their make up. However, makeup removers are full of chemical ingredients that are also from vague sources.

FatFace Cleansing Oil uses oil. Yep, nothing but oil! It will wash away the dirty oils and replace it with clean and healthy oils. The fatface cleansing oil contains lavender, rosemary, and lemongrass essential oils. Lavender is known for its ability to tone, revitalize and heal the skin. Rosemary oil can reduce inflammation, regulate oil secretion, clear acne blemishes and stimulates skin cell renewal. Lemongrass oil can increase blood circulation, which helps to reduce inflammation.

Ingredients: Castor Oil*, Extra Virgin Olive Oil*, Apricot Kernel Oil*, Sesame Oil*, Avocado Oil*, Macadamia Nut Oil*, Tamanu Oil*, Argan Oil*, Lavender Essential Oil, Rosemary Essential Oil, Lemongrass Essential Oil. *Denotes An Organic Ingredient.

Pros:

  • It smells amazing!
  • Hydrates and leaves you with soft, smooth and healthier skin!
  • Make your face feels so healthy and FED!
  • Improvement in the shine and glow of your skin.

Cons:

  • If you have allergies to lavender, this product is NOT for you.
  • Your skin may break out from the oil but it doesn’t occur to everyone. Sometimes the skin can get worse before it gets better. Just something you should keep mind.
