What are Beard Oils

Beard oils help moisturize and condition your beard. The oils can help tame any frizz and help with splitting beardruff. Beard oil can also act as a leave-in conditioner and can help moisturize the skin beneath. When you wash your beard and face oils are stripped, this natural oil is called sebum. Sebum is crucial for your beard's overall health and appearance. Beard oils can help replenish these oils and prevent dryness and itching. 

What is in Beard Oils?

There are a lot of beard oils out there. However, when looking for a beard oil make sure only pure, therapeutic carrier oils are used. These oils will act most like sebum and be less likely for an outbreak or rash. 

What Carrier Oils to Look for:

  • Jojoba Oil 
  • Argan Oil 
  • Grapeseed Oil
  • Sweet Almond Oil 

What is Beardruff?

Beardruff is dandruff that comes from your beard. If you experience beardruff you need to add a moisturizer to your beard routine. This will also help with flaking, and itching, and help soften your beard's overall appearance. 


You can also stop beardruff by exfoliating with a boars hair brush to remove dead skin and stimulate hair growth. 

When Should I Use Beard Oil

You should use beard oil daily to ensure a healthy long-lasting beard. You can start using beard oil before you have a beard and all through the beard-growing process. We recommend starting with a few drops and going up from there. You may find you need more or less based on your skin type. Oiler skin may need less while dryer skin may need more. You also may need more or less depending on the season or climate. 

What is the Best Beard Oil?

When shopping for a beard or grooming oil make sure that the ingredients are premium and ethically sourced. Make sure they only use therapeutic-grade essential oils and are artificial fragrance-free.
