Animal Based Beauty
Seed oils and essential oils are found in nearly every holistic skincare product on the market. It is our belief that this combination is not healthy nor does it promote beautiful skin. Because of this, we use animal fats and low PUFA oils that provide bioactive nutrients such as vitamins A, D, E, and K, as well as balanced fatty acid profiles that nourish and beautify the skin.
We rely on natural, organic and wildcrafted plants to create each of our products. We pack the purest ingredients at the highest levels of concentrations to deliver maximum results—without a single drop of essential oils and never mass-produced formulations.
We choose purity over convenience. From the seashores, forests to fields where our plants come from, each and every product is hand-blended and hand-packaged to ensure each bioactive botanical delivers the absolute best possible results to our clients.

"Seed oils sensitize the skin to ultraviolet exposure; in animal experiments, the presence of seed oils caused skin to wrinkle from UV exposure. Inflammation, cancer and other age-related changes are promoted by their breakdown products, and their conversion to prostaglandins." Dr. Ray Peat
Meet our Farmers
We formulate our skincare products using house-made botanical extracts derived from herbs and flowers grown by local farmers, whom we are proud to call our friends.
Whole Plant Skincare
Sustainability is a fundamental part of Kossma's business philosophy. This is the reason why we formulate our products using whole plant extracts rather than essential oils, which contain only the volatile compounds of the plant. Our philosophy is to create extracts that are truly beneficial to the skin by working together with the whole plant and all of its constituents.
I love this tallow balm! It feels and smells amazing and I’ve seen improvements in my and my daughters skin! I’ve ordered it twice and it’s the best!
I have a long way to go metabolically to heal my dry skin, and this serum has been a huge help!
A little goes a long way, but even if I apply it thickly, I don't get breakouts. I have even been using it on my eczema when it comes back.
I love the earthy scent and smooth, but not overly oily feel.
I am working on my second bottle of the Reishi Rose Tallow Beauty Oil and it is my favorite! I struggled with cystic acne for a long time and have tried many products; my skin loves Kossma and is healing beautifully. Can’t wait to try more of Kossma’s products.. I highly recommend!
I've been looking for the right cleanser for a while. My husband and I have different skin types and we both love it. My skin is very irritated and sensitive and this never burns!
I really like how light this cleanser is. It does a nice job cleansing off my makeup and leaves my skin feeling soft.
After having breakouts with the Squalene oil, I was so excited to try this product! It met all my expectations. It's moisturizing but not oily. It's perfect to apply in the morning and still put on makeup about 30 minutes later, without the heavy tallow residue that I enjoy in the evenings.
Moisturizing without feeling heavy, I love it!
It feels so refreshing! I love doing my nightly skin care routine even more after switching to Kossma. I love how this company doesn’t use seed oils or essential oils.
I’ve been trying to take better care of my skin lately after living most of my life in the tropical sun! I have brown pigmentation on my nose from sun damage, and I don’t want to jinx it, but after using this product regularly it is starting to fade!
Love this salve for EVERYTHING!! It smells heavenly as well
Works well. Dries out my skin if used alone, so make sure to put moisturizer on top.
Finally got to try this and it is amazing. Goes perfectly along with the tallow .
A little goes a long way! Smells wonderful, gentle, won’t strip oil from your face. I only use this to clean my face when not wearing make up. If I do wear make up I use the oil cleanser first and then second cleanse with this gel. Highly recommend.
I've been using this balm for over a year and can't say enough good about it. LOVE it for face, hands, literally anywhere. It's never broken me out and is so rich and luxurious feeling on the skin. 100000% recommend!
This is a amazing collagen that will help you with skin and digestion!
