What is Beard Oil?
Beard oil is a cosmetic product for men that is used to nourish both the skin under the beard and the beard itself in order to keep it “soft, shiny, and smooth”. Beard oil mimics the natural oils produced by the skin, such as sebum, and is composed mainly of carrier oils and essential oils. [ source – Wikipedia ]
These are a blend of various ingredients, such as
- jojoba oil,
- argan oil,
- coconut oil,
- grapeseed oil,
- hemp seed oil
that are used to address specific beard problems such as itching, sensitive skin, or dryness by going straight to the follicle in a similar fashion to hair conditioner.
Benefits / Why should we use Beard Oil:
whisker oil acts as a moisturizer that goes straight to the hair follicle and restricts hair from growing brittle, especially in cold, windy environments as these weather conditions cause the natural moisture of the beard area to wick. Hydration around this area helps prevent flaking, dandruff, and skin dryness.
Some brands of beard oil may contain added vitamins or nutrients such as vitamin E. This moisturization prevents general itchiness and irritation of the skin under the beard.
whisker oil also works below the surface of the skin by working as a grooming tool, making the beard itself more manageable, neat, and smooth.
whisker oil also improves the way a beard looks by giving it a slight shine. This makes a beard look healthier as well.
