How We Stay Transparent

We Never

best tallow skincare- Kossma
Use harmful essential oils

Kossma does not use any harmful irritants or ingredients containing seed oils, synthetic, or filler oils in any of our products. We believe in saturated skincare that mimics the skin's natural biome, sustaining the body's natural state.

Compromise our values

Kossma is revolutionizing skincare. We are boldly stepping out of Unsaturated synthetic skincare that is sweeping the beauty industry, but Saturated skincare that mimics our skin's NATURAL biome, restoring our natural glow, with healthy animal fats and whole plant extracts.

Use products from factory farms

Kossma does not engage in harmful mono crop agriculture. We are dedicated to regenerative practices that restore nature, as it was intended. Regenerative skincare is Sustainable skincare, using farming techniques that actually create carbon negatives, rather than fictitious net zero claims, popular today.

We Do

Proudly Use Tallow

Work With Nature

Kossma works with nature, using traditional distilling methods, rendering processes, and techniques known to ensure the integrity of the raw materials. Our apothecary and lab partners are dedicated to upholding these traditional extraction methods, while maintaining modern standards.

Believe that our skin can heal itself

Kossma empowers our customers to discover their skin's natural state and return their biome to it's most healthy condition. Modern day skincare consumption tells us that we need to stay in a constant state of stripping the skin and replenishing wiht unnatural materials. At Kossma, we believe in reducing use and returning to a simpler healthier skincare method

"I've been fighting perioral dermatitis for years. the sovereign salve was shared with me by my holistic esthetician and within three days of using, my flare up was almost entirely gone" -Lindsay T

Sovereign Salve| Frankincense & Tallow


Our all-in-one formulation is deeply nourishing for the skin. Made with organic grass-fed American tallow, this ultra-rich super salve can help improve the look and feel of your skin after just one use.

This salve is as much about what’s in it as what is behind it. Our ingredients have a rich history in both skin care and mythology. Frankincense resin, known for its skin-regenerating properties, has been used for centuries in religious and cosmetic rituals. Boswellia extract, a close relative of frankincense, has anti-inflammatory benefits for the skin. myrrh resin, with biblical significance as a valuable gift given by the three wise men, has been used for thousands of years for its skin-soothing properties. Colorado honey, known for its antibacterial properties, is combined with fresh beeswax cappings (filled with fibroblasts and amino acids) from Boulder, CO, to create a natural protective barrier for the skin. The final touch is a blend of pastured emu oil and jojoba oil, to leave your skin deeply moisturized and nourished, no matter the climate or elements you face.

Kossma Combo+

Mabon Dew Hydration Elixir and Tallow Beauty Balm The stearic acids from tallow in both products provide a double dose of moisture and extra nourishment. The combination also provides several infusions of peptide- and ceramide-boosting ingredients that help keep the skin hydrated to maintain the efficiency of the stratum corneum (outter most skin layer), keeping the body healthy and the skin beautiful.

Nature is simple.

So is Kossma. That's why we are proud to be an animal forward wellness company. Kossma products are grounded and work with nature to promote essential wellness for the mind and body.

Regenerative Skincare.

We use Regenerative farming and extraction methods, working with local farms and direct sources, whenever possible. Our products are from humanely raised animals, hormone free, grass fed and finished, ensuring maximum bioavailability.

A foundation of health

Rendered animal fat, also known as tallow, has a long and rich history of nourishing the body. And at Kossma, it's our most powerful ingredient.

If you aren't familiar with the benefits of tallow, applying animal fat to your skin, may seem strange. For decades, consumers have been widely misled to avoid fats, but the truth is, we need these biological and healthy fats to function optimally.

Grass-fed tallow provides the densest concentration of nutrients available, and our products containing tallow, mimic the skin's natural biome, providing your skin with life, rather than continuing the cycle of stripping and replenishing with toxic oils.

Works well!

I only used this a couple times (and I was pleased with the results) before my teenage son stole it lol. He says it works really well on acne and rough cuticles.

Great for pregnancy, post-partum, and changing skin

Prior to getting pregnant, I was developing dry patches on my face that were not going away with traditional moisturizers. I started using the sovereign salve with the hydrosol each morning. My skin started to improve.

With pregnancy, I developed acne, but continued to use the sovereign salve. I was afraid the acne would get worse with the heaviness of the Kossma ingredients, but my face pretty much stayed the same throughout pregnancy.

Now I am 8 weeks postpartum and my skin looks and feels great. I am 41, so fine lines are definitely a part of my life, but my overall skin tone is soft, rosy, and moisturized.

The best part about the sovereign salve is that a small container lasted me about 6 months!

Highly recommend this skin care routine.


Love this! It is extremely moisturizing. Skin feels so soft and smooth after using the Sovereign Salve. A little goes a long way.

So far I'm loving it!

Have only been using for about 2 weeks but have noticed a change in my skin! I have dry/acne prone skin that is VERY picky. I hesitated to use another product with oils as my skin usually doesn't love them. They somehow make my skin more dry + breakout? However after using this a few times I've noticed my skin is less dry plus less acne showing up. Also was on vacation and while everyone else burned my skin just got a nice far I'm loving it! Excited to see how my skin reacts after longer use.
