Hi, I am the founder of Stone & Spear. I have been interested in fitness, wellness, the outdoors, and nutrition for over 30 years. Despite eating what I thought was a "healthy" Mediterranean diet and lifting weights on a regular basis, I developed a number of chronic health issues in my 30s.
These health issues prompted me to significantly change my diet. About 10 years ago, I reversed my health issues by eliminating processed foods and transitioning to a clean paleo diet. After several years, I went keto, and I have been on a strict carnivore diet for the past four years.
In addition to cleaning up my diet, I also stopped using commercial skin products such as soap, deodorant, lip balm, and sunscreen that contain harmful chemicals and artificial ingredients. When I first tried tallow soap, I was amazed at how well it cleaned and nourished my skin and kept it from drying out. Shortly after that, I started making my own tallow soaps. I can't wait for you to enjoy and experience the benefits of our amazing natural handcrafted grass-fed tallow soaps and skincare products! You are going to LOVE them!
