10 Common Products Containing Tallow Fatty Acids

Posted by Danielle Wentworth on Nov 12, 2018, 10:30:00 AM

Tallow fatty acids are animal derivatives that are used in a wide range of applications including oil field consumption, resins, industrial cleaners, personal care, and in rubber and textile industries.  Tallow is a rendered form of beef or mutton fat, and is primarily made up of triglycerides. Tallow is used mainly in producing soap and animal feed.  Tallow can be used for the production of bio-diesel in much the same way as oils from plants are currently used.  

Many items of traditional goods are produced from tallow, which was widely available domestically.  Though many manufacturers have switched to vegetable based raw materials, tallow has historically been used to manufacture bar soap.  Other common products containing tallow include:

  • Candles
  • Lubricants
  • Resins
  • Industrial cleaner
  • Other personal care items such as shaving cream
  • Rubber
  • Textile applications
  • Plastics
  • Food applications
