You read that right, Beard Oil is NOT designed for your beard hairs!
This is one of the biggest misconceptions around beard grooming. The name itself would imply that you would simply apply the oil to your beard, right? Wrong!
Beard oil is designed for your skin!
Your face produces sebum oil naturally to keep your skin moisturized. As your beard grows, it pulls the oil away from your skin in an attempt to keep your hairs moisturized. Your body simply can't produce enough oil to keep your beard and your skin moisturized.
This is why many guys experience dry, itchy and sometimes flaky skin when they're growing out or have a beard. It's simply because their skin is extremely dry. This can also cause slow, unhealthy beard growth. This is where beard oil comes in to save the day and your beard!
Beard Oil should be used daily for beards of all lengths, from new beards to full yeards (1-year beard) or longer. It will moisturize the skin under the beard to eliminate any itch or irritation and promote healthier and fuller beard growth.
We often refer to beard oil as the foundation for a great beard. A premium, all natural beard oil will be made up of carrier oils like Jojoba oil and Argan oil which serve to moisturize and hydrate the skin. There will also be essential oils blended into the base oil for fragrance.
When shopping for a great oil, keep in mind the best beard oil has a lightweight to them and mimic the natural sebum oils your body creates. This allows the oil to be easily absorbed into your skin. Jojoba, argan and grape seed oils are the absolute best oils for this.
We recommend applying the oil after your shower and towel dry your beard. Get about 90% of the water out of your beard and really work it under the beard and into the skin.
Another common misconception is, beard oil will soften your beard. It might help a little bit, but it's not designed to be a beard softer. We recommend beard butter to soften and condition your beard.
