ESSENTIAL OILS & CARRIER OILS IN OUR PRODUCTS
Our products are made with natural nut oils like Sweet Almond Oil and Jojoba Oil, these nut oils are all natural but should be avoided if you have a nut allergy and are aware of any reactions.
Fragrance oils are natural and synthetic derived scents and can be found in our novelty beard oil range (White label). The dilution of fragrance oil with our natural ingredients is generally 1 - 5% so it is fairly low. Fragrance Oils are generally considered safe and are used in a wide range of cosmetics. They can cause allergens in some people, we have not had any reported cases of this occurring in any of our products but If you experience any symptoms like a redness or itchiness, Please stop using the product immediately and consult your GP. If you have had trouble with using things like colognes then fragrance oils may not be for you and you may want to stick with our Essential Oil range of beard oil.
Essential oils are usually extracted by distillation, often by using steam. These are used in many products including cosmetics, soaps, candles and other natural products. These oils are highly concentrated and should not be used without first being diluted in carrier oils. We dilute all our essential oils to acceptable levels to ensure they produce a great scent but are also safe on the skin. Their are many health benefits from essential oils, you can find many of these online.
