Beard Oil and why is it Key?
What is a Beard Oil?
A Beard Oil, as the name suggests, is a specially formulated oil, designed to be applied to your beard / stubble / facial hair to keep it soft, hydrated and healthy as your facial hair is coarser than the hair on your head, meaning it requires a little more upkeep and added hydration.
Tame & Moisturise It!
Beard hair tends to be rougher in texture than the hair on your head. Beard oil softens and adds shine to beard hair. It also tames scraggly hairs so that your entire beard looks neater and more styled. The oil also keeps the skin underneath your beard supple and healthy whilst reducing the occurrence of beard dandruff and itch.
Healthy Hair that Smells Good!
Depending on the ingredients used, Beard oil can make a scraggly beard look fuller and lusher. For this reason, some people use beard oil for hair growth. Not sure about all oils but our Beyond Bear oil smells amazing and has a lovely not overpowering lingering scent on your beard.
Argan Oil as an Ingredient
Argan oil is cold-pressed from the kernels found inside the fruits of the argan tree (Argania Spinosa). This tree only grows in the south-west part of Morocco, making it the only source of this precious and demanded oil. While argan oil has many culinary uses, the main reason it’s produced these days is for cosmetics use due to its quick absorption as well as vitamin E and other antioxidant content.
In the recent years, beards and the care thereof has become extremely popular with new beard oil brands appearing therefore there is a need for exceptional formulations for beard growth and health. Beyond’s Beard Oil formulation ensures to:
Moisturizes the beard: Linseed Oil with the mix of different oils is exceptionally good because it contains high amounts of natural squalene – a hydrocarbon identical to the skins own sebum oil.
Nourishes the beard: Macadamia Oil contains natural tocopherols (vitamin E), carotenes, phenols, antioxidant catechins, and high-quality monounsaturated fatty acids which all help nourish the facial hair, making the beard soft and vibrant.
Reduces beardruff: There are many causes and remedies for beard dandruff, one of the leading ones is a stressed brittle dry skin where the dead skin cells flake off as white “dandruff”. Argan oil, Coriander helps prevent this through its moisturizing and nourishing effects.
Prevents itchiness: The main culprit of beard itch is dry facial hair and increased water-loss from the surface layer of the skin. Like many natural oils, Wheatgerm Oil can help reduce itchiness trough trapping in moisture.
Reduces inflammation: Thanks to its high amount of natural fat-soluble antioxidant vitamin E and other anti-inflammatory compounds, Lavender Oil can help soothe and prevent in-grown beard hairs.
Protects against heat-damage: Beard straighteners, flat irons, and blow-drying expose the facial hair to high heat which can damage it. Coriander Oil offers natural protection against this for up to 450°F.
