If you're looking for a tried-and-true favorite, Tallow Whip is our top pick:

"I have been a long-time Dermalogica user. I am a professional skin therapist, and that is what I’ve recommended for over 10 years. I was introduced to Root Apothecary ... I decided to try the tallow whip. Immediately, I noticed a difference in my skin and I love the texture" - Tina R.

Anna switched to our Tallow after another tallow brand stopped working for her skin. "I was using ...................... It’s an amazing brand, but I like simple ingredients. They work best for my skin. I also think that the more ingredients you add, the less tallow is added, which I believe is why it isn’t working for my skin anymore." - Anna T.

"Just the bare tallow has replaced products from Melaleuca, Babyganics, EOS, and others. We prefer (Root) because of the clean ingredients, transparency, price, and results!" - Paris H.


Shay switched from            , another tallow company. "Strictly from a product standpoint, I have a lot of sensory sensitivities and their brand felt really grainy and smelled very meaty despite heavy (added) scents. Root's (tallow) is a lot smoother and mild to my senses also doesn’t leave a greasy-like film residue. Not only is the quality excellent, but the products are very affordable which is so nice as someone with a low income. It’s clear how important low prices are to the brand and company, and that solidarity is so appreciated." - Shay T.

"I switched from                          and                        . I prefer the consistency of Root, and the price is within our budget without sacrificing quality. My face is also happier! It's a larger jar for the price of others, while not sacrificing the quality. My skin is sensitive and has loved Root's Bare." - Elizabeth D.

"I switched from ..........  because although her products are good, I prefer Root’s product textures and consistencies. As a young wife & homemaker, I can afford to buy products from Root knowing that I’ll get amazing quality for a lower price." - Nina L.


Brittne switched from another tallow brand. "The consistency of Root's product (tallow) is a million times better." - Brittne P.


Tallow Balm and lip balm:


"I switched from Eminence Organics’ Eight Greens Whipped Moisturizer to RA’s Bare Tallow Balm. I notice that my skin does not get greasy, it’s never dry on my dry spots and it’s smoother, softer and with fewer or no pimples. The price and quality are unbeatable, the product works incredibly well and customer service is great." - Mercedes C.

"Switched Burt’s bees chapstick to your lip balm because it’s far superior to anything I’ve used. I felt like I constantly had to apply chapstick before but root always gets the job done and I only need it once or twice a day!" - Hayley G.


Jenny stopped using Nivea and Aveeno after trying Tallow Balm. "I can't get enough of the tallow balms. They just melt into my skin." - Jenny S.

Ashlen has replaced products NYX, Bronners, and more! "I switched from .............. tallow to Root’s tallow and use it for pretty much everything now. Root's products are just superior to any others I’ve tried. The commitment to safe, quality and affordable products and supporting other small brands doing the same thing makes Root worthwhile. I will be a Root customer forever! " - Ashlen P.


"I switched from Young Livings Dry Skin Serum to both the whipped and balm tallows. The tallow is much more affordable, application is easier, and we really love the feel and scent. It has worked wonders on my kids chapped hands." - Brooke R.


Carrissa replaced her Chapstick and Burt's Bees with Root Apothecary Tallow + Honey Lip Balm. "RA works instantly. It’s like magic in a tube." - Carrissa M.


"The saying 'you get what you pay for' does not apply to Root Apothecary!"


"I keep buying from Root not only for the price but because the products actually work. I’d spend up to $70 on one product and not see any results, if anything more dry skin or more redness. The saying “you get what you pay for” does not apply to Root Apothecary!" - Mercedes Q.


" I switched from ,.......... and ............., I prefer the texture of both your whip and balm to others. It also seems to be helping my sons acne scarring and my old lady skin much more quickly. There’s also less of an animal odor with your products." - Jill B.

"I switched from Monat, Crunchi, cereve, and some products my previous esthetician recommended. It was all so expensive and bothered me that I was paying so much for sub par results. With root, I use ONE product that is safe enough and works well enough to use on all parts of my body for everything - all skincare, including makeup removal, body lotion, and aftercare for a sunscreen. It's ... incredibly cost effective." - Reily B.


"This is the first that I have seen real visual results and in a relatively short time frame."


Our tallow is even replacing steroids for some customers! "I used a lot of Aveeno and cortisone cream for eczema. I’m obsessed with Root Apothecary because of how clean it is and it actually works!! Most “natural” products don’t work, this one 100% does! I will yell it from the rooftops how amazing it is!! IT WORKS!" - Andrea G.


"I was previously using First Aid Beauty and Cerave. I prefer Root Apothecary because of all the moisturizers/treatments I have tried, this is the first that I have seen real visual results and in a relatively short time frame. Super simple, 1 step, and a clean brand. I don’t have time for a 20 step process to address a concern." - Christina G.


"I switched from earthley and beauty counter. The whipped tallow works far better than either product from prior companies." - Calla W.


"The products last a long time and my skin and lips feel so much better and more hydrated with them than with any products I’d used previously." - Megan F.
