With almost 50% of men in the world sporting some type of a beard, facial hair is now becoming just as important to keep groomed as the hair on our heads. Unfortunately growing and maintaining a beard can also cause many challenges for men such as dry, flaky skin, constant itching and beard dandruff (or ‘Beardruff’), to name a few. So lets make a start.

BEARD OIL.

Beard Oil Helps To Prevent Itching By Providing Essential Nutrients And Oils To The Pores. This Rich Blend Of Oils Deeply Conditions The Hair And Helps Sooth Irritation And Reduce Inflammation. The End Goal Being A Healthier Thicker Beard.

Beard oil softens and adds shine to beard hair. It also tames scraggly hairs so that your entire beard looks neater and more styled.

Beard oil keeps the skin underneath your beard supple and healthy. It also reduces the occurrence of dandruff, itch & ingrown hairs.

Beard oil can make a scraggly beard look fuller and lusher. For this reason, some people use beard oil for hair growth.

Beard oil smells good, really good, and can be used instead of cologne, lasting just as long, if not longer.

A few people have asked, does beard oil encourage hair growth? Well it hasn’t been scientifically proven that beard oil will help with beard growth. However, there’s anecdotal evidence that some of the essential oils used in beard oil may help support or promote beard hair growth.

These include ylang ylang, bay leaf, and other essential oils high in antioxidants.

Beard oil is most effective when used as a moisturizer for the skin underneath your beard. You should start seeing an improvement in the condition and appearance of your skin and beard as soon as you start using beard oil.

Remember that all types of skin, including oily skin, need to be nourished and moisturized. If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, try using a beard oil that contains essential oils with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. These include tea tree oil & cinnamon.

BEARD BUTTER.

Butters are normally a mix of oils and butters like Shea and Cocoa etc. The natural butters used in beard butters are used to help lock in moisture whilst making sure the beard remains soft and manageable.

High concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins make our beard butters an ideal go to self-care product for softening Beard hair and your skin. Onesociety Beard Butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Using our butters on your face, especially your beard, can condition, tone, soothe and nourish your beard & skin.

Butters also provide a light hold so that you can tame and style your beard. It’s therefore the ideal product for styling and will keep your beard extremely healthy.

You can also use beard butters as a leave in conditioner overnight, try and use a small amount at a time until you have covered your beard and skin under the beard. Wipe excess away with a clean towel or flannel. When the morning comes you will have a noticeably softer, well nourished & beautifully smelling Beard.

The vitamin E we use in onesociety beard butters and other products is a powerful antioxidant that may be effective at reducing UV damage in skin. And vitamin E applied topically may help nourish and protect your skin & hair from damage caused by free radicals.

BEARD BALM.

In order to understand all the benefits you get out of a solid beard balm, its important that you understand what each one of these ingredients actually does.

Beeswax in beard balm gives your beard a slight hold and styling properties to an extent.  Unlike beard wax which gives you the ultimate hold that your beard can achieve, the beeswax in beard balm is only just a slight hold at best.

In addition to giving you a better hold on your beard, beeswax also helps to lock in the moisture given off by the other ingredients in the balm.

If beeswax is primarily for the hold, then the butter is for spread ability. This isn’t your typical dairy butter that you may have in the fridge.  Instead, the butter used in beard balm is usually along the lines of a shea or cocoa butter.

Some people this stuff smells incredible.

Shea and cocoa add a couple layers of benefits when it comes to beard balm.

First off, its extremely rich in moisture. Second only to carrier oils that I will cover next, butters help provide an ample amount of moisture for your beard. This is critical, especially if you live in a cooler or dry climate.  The butter in beard balm makes sure that your beard will remain healthy throughout the day.

Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, is that butters actually improve the spread ability of the balm itself. Simply put, if butter wasn’t included in beard balm, trying to apply the balm would be an incredibly tough process and take a very long time for the actual wax to melt.

Carrier oils are where you are getting much of the benefits of any decent beard balm. Complimenting the butters used, a carrier oil will make your beard incredibly soft and healthy looking.

What is a carrier oil? Carrier oils come from several different types of plants, the most common being jojoba, argan oil, sweet almond oil, etc. Also found as the core ingredient in beard oil, carrier oils core purpose is to only nourish your beard.

If its your first ever time using beard balm a great beginner carrier oil to look out for is either jojoba or argan oil. Especially if you have very sensitive skin, jojoba in particular is just about as close of an all natural ingredient that you can use that closely resembles the natural sebum oil that your skin produces.

This greatly reduces any chance of having an allergic reaction – it's generally recommended to do an allergy patch test before applying any new products to your skin on a regular basis.

BEARD WASH.

Many people make the big mistake of using a harsh head hair shampoo on there beard, big mistake.

Yes you read that right, there's literally a great selection of carrier oils which you will rub into your face whilst washing out the old rubbish. This is something that sets it apart from other shampoos which are around. Instead of completely stripping your beard of oils, it's actually helping to nourish whilst cleaning.
