It started with a simple truth.

Almost every modern skincare product you'll find today, even in the tallow skincare niche, tends to be packed with harsh essential oils, skin irritants, and seed oils. These ingredients often lead to premature aging, acne, dry and damaged skin. Recognizing this problem inspired the creation of Kossma. Our mission? To revive the time-honored, traditional ways. We're all about simple, animal-based ingredients that utilize the full potential of what tallow can do for the skin. By integrating whole plant extracts and time-honored resins, we aim to not just heal the skin but to enhance its natural beauty from the inside out. This is the heart of what makes Kossma’s tallow based skincare so effective.

Behind the brand


Kossma is founded on regenerative practices, reinforcing our relationship with nature, working with the ingredients and resources that are naturally occuring. We happily exist outside of the mainstream synthetic skincare market, opting instead to partner with small farms, local manufacturers and partners who share our core values.

Tallow Skincare by Kossma

Founder, Stephanie Peña

I've been crafting animal-based skincare products for over 20 years, and Kossma Beauty reflects my passion for nurturing the body, inside and out.

Herbology became a passion of mine during my aesthetics training in 2003, and I continued studying it after earning my license. When one of my children developed liver-related health issues, I delved into learning how to support the whole body system through holistic medicine and discovered the healing and protective properties of an animal-based diet including raw milk, saturated fats, organs, gelatinous rich broths, herbal medicine and supplements when necessary.

Using my knowledge of healthy animal fats and herbal medicine, I developed skincare formulations for my family and began selling them at local markets, establishing the foundation for Kossma Beauty. In 2019, Kossma Beauty launched as the first company globally to create a skincare range free from essential oils, PUFA-rich seed oils, and exclusively focused on herbal and animal-based ingredients. This pioneering "PUFA-aware skincare" line quickly gained widespread acclaim for its innovative skincare and supplement products, alongside its commitment to pro-metabolic education. My goals for the future include expanding our existing product lines as well as developing new herbal remedies and metabolic supportive supplements that embrace traditional wellness to ensure optimal health and beauty.
