What is beard balm?

Beard balm is a leave-in holding conditioner with moisturizing properties. It also softens and allows you to style facial hair to how you want it to be. Our beard balm also  helps in reducing itching and inflammation in the skin underneath.

Why Our Beard Balm?

We have carefully handcrafted our beard balm and other beard products since 2017 and we have formulated, improved and tested numerous times to perfect a beard balm that we were happy to use ourselves and on our own beards without the pain points.

We know that scent like taste is a personal preference, so we have catered a vast scent range to accommodate for all types of noses.  We believe by testing the market that are balms are far superior to the generic melt and pour balms that are currently available by other company's. Like true craftsman, we use heating, whipping, and freezing techniques when creating our beard balm.

These steps are essential for us and are one of the many things that separate our product range from any competition. The process although more so complex allows us to create a superior product to traditional beard balm products on the market that are hard and difficult to remove from the container. It is softer but still retains all the holding properties of a traditional balm. 

Our product has a shelf life span of up to 12 months and is made in small batches prolonging freshness as well as longevity. It’s a day-to-day product for styling and holding and softening the beard, giving it fresh smell all day.

Beard Balm Ingredients

Cold Pressed: Organic Jojoba Oil: The organic jojoba oil closely mimics human skin oil and has extra vitamins for the skin and great moisturizing properties. This helps to balance the level of Sebum oil to target and eliminate dandruff and beard-itch.

Beeswax: beeswax is used as our main holding ingredient to the beard balm. It also helps to create a layer of protection from the elements to the beard hair as it hardens.

Cold Pressed: Organic Sweet Almond Oil: This is our second carrier oil and that also helps to balance the level of Sebum oil to target and eliminate dandruff and beard-itch.

Mango Butter: It is an impeccable ingredient for treating dry skin and soothing sensitive skin. This is because mango butter is rich in vitamins A, C, and E, as well as moisturizing essential fatty acids.

Mixed Essential Oils: They help us produce great scents and allow the creation of products with great smell without any severe chemicals. Essentials oils have many health benefits to skin, hair, and overall general health. 

Fragrance Oil Blends: Not all fragrance oils are considered bad and our special blends allow us to create scents that are not possible with essential oils alone. 

Shea Butter: Naturally rich in Vitamins A, E, and F It is perfect for conditioning and nurturing the skin and hair to soften it.

Vitamin E: has many benefits for hair and skin and protects cells from damage, moisturizes, nourishes hair follicles, and the skin underneath. It also acts as an antioxidant that prolongs the life of our balm naturally free from chemicals. 

How To Use Beard Balm

Beard balm is an all-inclusive beard moisturizer, and conditioner that is also used for styling. It is great for men who are looking to control and maintain thicker beards and keep the hair were it should be.

Here are the steps to follow when applying beard balm:
  1.  After combing your beard to remove any tangles, grab your container of beard balm to get started.

  2. Scoop out a small amount of balm and rub the balm between your palms. The balm will then breakdown, melt and spread easily between your hands to an oil consistency.

  3. Run your fingers through your beard hair, from your neck upwards and back through the beard hair and moustache.

  4. Style your beard with your hands, boar bristle brush or beard comb to your liking.

  5. Repeat the process 1 to 2 times a day or as required. For best results apply beard oil before applying beard balm.
