5 Crucial Oils you should have in your Beard Balm. (Guess What? Beardologist has em all!)
While some people think of oil and only worry about whether or not they are getting Synthetic Blend or Regular in their trucks, we want to let you know exactly which are the most important to have in you beard products.
At Beardologist we've hold thirteen different ingredients that make up our incredibly healthy balms, add to that the classic aromatics of craft cocktails and you've got one of the best products out there.
Let us walk you through 5 of the most important oils we are using.
SUNFLOWER SEED OIL:
When you look at a towering Sun Flower or pop one of those salty seeds in your mouth to crack it open for the delicious little morsel inside, I bet you don’t really think of the properties of what that plant can produce.
You see moisture is the key to natural hair growth, especially on your face.
Sunflower oil acts as a natural moisturizer because it’s infused with several vitamins and minerals, including high levels of Vitamin E which produce healthy hair growth.
The odorless oil is light in texture and works to penetrate the hair shaft to lock and retain moisture, making it a key ingredient in our balm.
Stranded on a deserted island? Or just letting that Quarantine beard get a little out of control so you just look like you’ve been? Good news! Should you actually be stuck on said Island you can use the oil from the only readily thing to eat to keep that uncut beard healthy!
Coconut oil is brimming with beneficial vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can restore health to lackluster hair and protect it from environmental damage. The moisturizing effects also strengthen the hair shaft, promoting growth.
This is one of the first things we knew we needed in our Balms not only to give it an incredible punch full of vitamins, but also to lend a full natural aspect to our ingredients.
Screw "None of your Beeswax!" Those tiny timeless helpers are not only crucial for the planet and vegetation to grow, but make an incredible shield to keep your facial skin safe.
Beeswax is rich in Vitamin A which helps hydrate the skin. It creates a barrier that locks in all of the benefits from the ingredients in this balm for the entire day. This barrier also helps protect the skin from environmental toxins and irritants, all while allowing the skin to breathe.
Beeswax also helps keep our Balms silky, viscous, and not to runny, making it perfect to apply and not make a mess.
I’m pretty sure as you are chefing up your favorite pasta dish and flash frying some garlic cloves in a smoking hot puddle of olive oil you are not thinking about putting this stuff on your face.
Far from it, but mixed with our other incredible ingredients and our wonderful aromatics, Olive oil promotes hair growth can help you get longer and thicker hair faster, in addition to repairing damaged hair.
Also, it helps reduce irritation and issues that may lead to dry, flaky skin. This becomes one of Beardologist’s most important ingredients and helps you grow a healthier sexier mane!
MACADAMIA SEED OIL:
Used by Ancient civilizations across the world Macadamia Nut Oil is one of the important ingredients in our balms.
The Egyptians used it to embalm mummies, and the aboriginal Australians would express the oil from the nuts and use it as a binder with ochres and clay for face and body painting. We want to use it to make your beard look sexy as fuck and smell nice, so we had to draft it to the team.
This hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic oil, it is one of the closest matches to the naturally occurring sebum of the skin. It also contains squalene and oleic acid, which assist with cell regeneration, making this oil particularly useful for dry or chapped skin as it softens and moisturizes.
ETHYLHEXYL PALMITATE (Palm Oil) :
Say it with me.....
Damn, that is a bit of a tongue twister, but learn it, it will make you sound pretty smart when you are describing what makes that little tin of cocktail goodness in you pocket work so well!
Ethylhexyl Palmitate is a derivative of palm oil often used as an organic replacement to silicone. It has a 'dry-slip' feel that is very similar to silicone's texture and making it a non-occlusive emollient, which means it does not form a film on the surface of skin.
As a moisturizer, it helps to keep the skin supple by reducing water loss the outer layer of skin.
So say it with me again - EHTH-EL-HEX-EL PAL-MA-TATE.
Remember chicks dig smart guys, especially smart guys with great beards!
