Beef Tallow - A Natural Choice For Your Growing Belly

Beef Tallow - A Natural Choice For Your Growing Belly


Belly balms and belly oils are often marketed to “avoid stretch marks”.

Women truly deserve better than this.

Some women develop stretch marks no matter whey they do.

This is normal, but it’s often something that is hard for women to accept about themselves.

We live in a culture that makes women feel that this isn’t desirable. Isn’t beautiful.

That we should hold onto our maiden body and remain untouched, with no story at all.

But what’s more beautiful and more natural than skin that has been stretched to accomodate the growth of new life?

Breasts that hang lower because they’ve been sucked, and tugged, and pulled to nourish and sustain life.

At Maia, we use pure ingredients to soothe itchiness and hydrate the belly as it stretches.

We embrace belly balm as a moment to connect with your baby inside the womb.

To massage any tender spots through times of growth.

To honour your body.

It may take some time to change the narrative, but it starts here.

Unfortunately, as the world evolves, skincare formulations have become increasingly complex.

Many personal care products are filled with ingredients that offer little benefit to the skin, let alone the delicate skin that shields and nurtures a growing baby.

Women are craving simple and pure skincare choices during pregnancy.

That's why a lot of mothers are going back to basics and discovering the ancient wisdom found in 100% grass-fed beef tallow.

Beef tallow is a traditional and versatile product that has been used for centuries.

Here's why this time honoured ingredient is gaining recognition and becoming a go-to choice for those seeking simplicity and effectiveness, especially during pregnancy:

1. Aligns with Human Skin: Beef tallow doesn't just sit on your skin – it harmonises with it. Its composition closely resembles the structure of human skin lipids, ensuring that it's readily absorbed and effective without the need for synthetic additives.

2. Packed with Fatty Acids: Loaded with essential fatty acids, these nutrients play a crucial role in supporting overall skin health and are particularly beneficial for maintaining elasticity.

3. Fat Soluble Vitamins: Beef tallow provides a natural source of vitamins A, E, and D. Vitamin A aids in skin repair, vitamin E acts as an antioxidant, and vitamin D promotes the growth of skin cells – all essential elements for healthy skin.

4. Healing Benefits: Beyond its nutrient-rich profile, beef tallow has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-bacterial properties, and is known to be gentle and healing for sensitive skin types.

5. Deep Hydration for Comfort: The natural moisturising properties of beef tallow make it an ideal solution for alleviating dryness, irritation, and itchiness—common concerns as your skin stretches during pregnancy.

We’ve blended our Tallow Belly Balm with a few other wholesome and organic ingredients, added a few gentle essential oils, then whipped it to create a silky and loving belly balm.

Mamas are absolutely loving it!

It’s a treasured product in our Pregnancy Wellness Box, and available for individual purchase here
