What is Beard Oil and why do you need it?

It may have been popularised by long-haired hipsters, but here’s why Beard Oil is an essential item in your toiletries bag

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Beard Oil is one of those new products that’s been created for the hirsute heroics of the modern day, latte-sipping, craft beer-drinking man.

But did you know that Beard Oil can actually be dated back to the Ancient Greeks and Romans? In fact, it was in the 1930s it really became an everyday item when dashing gentlemen with impressive beards and moustaches were looking for products to help style and manicure their fashionable look. However, unlike today’s products, early iterations of Beard Oil commonly used synthetic ingredients, like petroleum (ew!).

But why Beard Oil?

Just like the hair on our heads, facial hair needs to be cleaned and conditioned to control unwanted issues like dandruff, split ends and skin irritations. In fact, facial hair can be decidedly more coarse than hair on our heads, which makes it even more prone to problems.

So, what is Beard Oil?

It is a blend of conditioning oils and active ingredients that, used regularly, can help to moisturise and condition your beard as well as soothing dry, sensitive skin hiding beneath.

Quality beard oils – including our own Citrus Twist Beard Oil – also contain active ingredients to help promote healthy hair growth.

That’s why our Beard Oil recipe contains a unique blend of active ingredients and essential oils that not only work to condition and soothe your hair and skin, but also leave you smelling TERRIFIC:

  • Kukui Nut Oil: Essential fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants that help soothe dry skin and moisturise dry, damaged hair
  • Horsetail Herb: Natural silica improves hair growth and strength
  • Jojoba Oil: High in anti-oxidants, maintains skin elasticity, aids with dry skin problems and rejuvenates the base layer of the skin
  • Olive Oil: high in antioxidants, offers intense hydration and quick absorption into the skin
  • Essential Oils: tangerine, sweet orange, cinnamon, patchouli, lime and black pepper. Spicy, herbal and citrus, it’s a refreshing take on your traditional ‘mens’ fragrance

How do you use Beard Oil?

Conveniently packaged in a glass dropper bottle, our mild and gentle beard oil is easy to apply.

Simply add a few drops to the palm of your hand, rub your hands together and gently massage into your beard and moustache. Don’t forget to run your fingers through your facial hair, really working the product in and allowing the jojoba and kukui nut oils to deeply penetrate.

Style however you prefer and feel confident knowing you look (and smell) a million bucks!
