What Does Beard Oil Do
Some of our products have a little explaining to do.
Shave oil softens the follicle and shaft of the hairs, allowing them to bend as the razor desires, resulting in a closer, smoother shave, with fewer nicks.
It can be used before your regular shave product or as an independent shave lubrication--those seeking a quick but gentle, moisturizing shave find it speeds their morning process, and those committed to a close shave but unwilling to abandon the sight of a foamy face in the mirror find that our shave oil enhances their usual routine.
Many find that the full visibility that shave oil provides is essential for the delicate task of lining up their beard.
Use your hands to apply to wet skin before shaving. Be careful not to use too much--you want to provide a thin layer of moisturizing slip, not drown your face. Our advice for first-timers is to apply slightly less than you think you should. It should feel like the razor is gliding over your skin, not skipping or dragging.
WHAT IT DOES FOR YOUR BEARD:
We all know the plagues of beard growing: itch, dryness, splitting, breakage, thin spots, the dreaded beard dandruff; even the most thickly, handsomely bearded folk have battled at least one of these. From these troubles, Brothers Artisan Oil was born. We saw the damage inflicted to the beards we prided ourselves on, by the wear and tear of everyday grooming as well as the elements, and decided to create a do-it-all, pocket-sized product that would lend our beards a hand. And then we decided to make it smell really, really good.
HOW IT DOES IT:
Brothers Artisan Oil products promote growth by preventing splitting and breakage, as well as nourishing the skin, preventing flaking and itching. Remember, a strong beard can only grow from healthy skin.
WHAT IT DOES FOR YOUR FACE AND HAIR:
Our product, though developed for the bearded chin and the fine hairs that grow from it, is beneficial to more than just facial hair--all that smoothing, shining, and breakage prevention applies to head hair too, and our oil contains anti-inflammatory, moisturizing properties for the skin. Since it mimics the natural oils the skin produces, but is a purified product, even clean-shaven men have found it helpful for everything from dryness to acne. And of course, it smells really good.
HOW YOU DO IT:
BEARD: Simply massage into beard, preferably after a shower, to lock in moisture and prevent splitting. The amount depends on your beard length--for some courageous stubble, we recommend a dime-sized amount: for respectable scruff, a nickel: for a serious beard, a quarter.
HAIR: Work through wet hair and style as usual, to condition and tame frizz.
SKIN. Everyone's skin is different; start with a little and use more as needed for hydration, pore tightening, blemish control, and preventing ingrown hair.
INGREDIENTS: argan oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, blend of essential oils.
OTHER THINGS: Customers have told us they've used our oil on their elbows, knees, and ears.
