Does Beard Oil Work?
Have you ever wondered about a new product and if it actually works? I get this question asked over and over at markets and craft shows. And honestly, I love it.
It's probably the main reason you are reading this now. When you are new to using any product, in this case beard oil, you want to know the "why before you buy".
So the simple answer is, yes beard oil does work. And the reason "why" might surprise you.
So, WHAT DOES BEARD OIL DO?Well there are many reasons beard oil should be the Player 1 in your grooming and skincare routine. Let's chat about a few of those what's and why's.
BEARD OIL NOURISHES YOUR SKIN
BEARD OIL REDUCES DANDRUFF & BEARD ITCH
Again, your beard hair is sucking the moisture from your skin and it creates this dry, itchy feeling. This leads to dandruff and the painful beard itch you may be experiencing. Our scientifically balanced blends help to condition your skin and eliminate the dandruff and beard itch.
BEARD OIL SOFTENS YOUR BEARD
So while the skin is being taken care of by our cold pressed carrier oils (like Golden Jojoba, Abyssinian, Cucumber Seed and Avocado) it is also working to condition your beard hair. All of these carriers oils create our Signature Oil blend that is scientifically balanced to help soften and condition your beard hair.
BEARD OIL MAKES YOUR BEARD LOOK GOOD
Just a few drops (depending on length) will help to soften, condition and nourish your beard to create a superior look compared to just doing nothing and having brittle and dry beard.
BEARD OIL HELPS FIGHT OFF THE BAD STUFF
When you use our beard oil, the carrier oils we chose all serve a purpose. Some are antibacterial. Some are anti-fungal. Some are antimicrobial. This combination of ingredients provides a natural protection for optimal beard growth.
BEARD OIL SMELLS AMAZING
Let's be honest. We don't want our beards smelling like last nights drool or the meal we ate last. Beard oil has the ability to add some luxury to our beards through our nose. It sets the mood and there are so many choices we can pick one for each occasion if we wanted. Or go unscented, with our Duck Hunter Beard Oil.
BEARD OIL CREATES AN OPTIMAL ENVIRONMENT FOR BEARD GROWTH
Consistently using beard oil keeps the skin and hair ready for healthy growth. Like I said earlier, think of your skin being the soil for the vine (your beard hair). When you fertilize the soil (skin with beard oil) it creates better conditions for the vine (beard hair) to grow.
DOES BEARD OIL ACCELERATE BEARD GROWTH?
I get this question a lot and and it is a confusing one since so many companies have products that claim this. One for instance is Derma rolling. I think this is a huge no-no because when used incorrectly (and most do) it actually can cause a lot more damage to the skin and infection/injury to your skin.
The simple answer is most carrier oils DO NOT accelerate beard growth.
The key here is most.
Over the last few years we are finally getting some scientific data to suggest there are a few carrier oils when combined with certain essential oils that can promote and wake up dormant hair follicles!!! This is very cool and promising in our industry!!! More studies are needed but some early research has shown to be very positive.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEARD OIL INGREDIENT RATIOS
Have you ever examined a product label to check its ingredients? Well you should on everything you are putting on or into your body.
Companies, including ours, are legally required to list our ingredients in order of concentration.
So make sure to find a beard oil with high concentrations of organic cold pressed oils (plant based). We prefer using Golden Jojoba Oil as it most resembles our skin, Abyssinian and a few other key oils.
It may sound biased to brag about our ingredients over others but it shows our commitment to giving you high-quality products without compromise.
HIGH QUALITY BEARD OIL, DOES THIS MATTER?
Quality is a term frequently used when purchasing products. How do you evaluate the quality of a product?
Is it based on recommendations, reviews, or information provided by the company? Here are some considerations for assessing beard oil quality:
Transparency of Ingredients.
Transparency of Ownership
Transparency of Manufacturing
Ask how the beard oils are manufactured. Are they made in a clean environment? Safety gloves and all? But the most important is using the products and seeing how they work for you!
This is a very lengthly list but is packed with so many benefits on why beard oil does work. Now you know more than you probably wanted to about beard oil, go check out our amazing collection of beard oils and let us know how they are!
