Beard Oil Review

Beardbrand's beard oils are made from the finest all natural ingredients and were designed to be lightweight and won't weigh your beard down. These oils quickly absorb into your beard and skin and don't leave your beard greasy feeling or oily. Beard oil helps condition your beard and the skin beneath your beard to give a shiny, healthy looking beard. Using beard oil regularly can help minimize beard dandruff and will make your beard smell amazing. Our beard oils have light fragrances meant to be enjoyed by you and those who are close to you. Pair them together with a matching mustache wax for the ultimate combination in beard care.

As always, all Beardbrand products are Sulfate, Silicone and Paraben Free! All of our oils and several other products, including the Sea Salt Texture Spray and Utility Balm are all natural. All beard brand fragrance is naturally derived using essential oils and aromatic extracts. For more info on how we source our fragrance, take a look at this blog article, a Semi Scientific Study on Fragrance

Here’s why we don’t put that stuff in our products. 

Sulfates are a foaming agent, typically SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) which  has been linked to organ toxicity, skin irritation and ecotoxicology (harm to the environment or a specific ecosystem). They can cause a number of problems for your hair including drying, irritating your scalp, fading your color, and even hair loss.

Silicones provide the “slip”, a plastic like polymer. It provides softness and shine because it essentially seals the cuticle in a sleeve of plastic, but eventually it builds up and weights hair down. 

Parabens are preservatives. They are know to be hormone disruptors and research is suggesting it to be a large component to the rise in various cancers. 

Instead, we put in the good stuff. 

Each of our beard oil bases are crafted specifically to work with the fragrances and offer a variety of slightly different benefits.
