What the Heck is Beard Oil and Why is Everyone SO Crazy About It?
You are either bearded or know someone who is. Why else are you reading a blog on beard oil? According to Huffington Post, a study completed by Braun (yes, the Braun that makes shaving products), found that in trendsetting New York, 67% of men have beards. I heard someone else say that in their Midwest town, it felt like 90% of the men had beards. What is your town like? Is the bearded population over 50%?
There is also a study out, presented by the NY Times, from the University of Queensland in Australia, that women prefer men with beards. Good news guys, right? But, how about for us guys that suffer from beard itch and beardruff (you know, dandruff but for your beard)? That’s where beard oil comes in.
There are tons of products out there for beards but none more arguably important than beard oil. A high quality, premium beard oil, like Beard Sauce, is designed to nourish, hydrate, and maintain your beard. Think of it as a leave-in conditioner for your beard. It will reduce the itch, the flakes, and tame the flyaways. A premium beard oil is a blend of all-natural carrier and essential oils. Make sure you check the ingredients because a good beard oil only needs these two items. You want to stay away from synthetic ingredients, fragrance oils, or alcohol.
Carrier oils are natural oils derived from seeds, nuts, and plants and are often used to dilute the concentrated essential oils. Carrier oils have their own benefits and are used in beard oil as the hydrating agents. According to Medical Daily, coconut oil can be used as a moisturizer due to its Vitamin E content. It also has antimicrobial properties that are helpful to fight against acne, eczema, and more.
Essential oils are natural oils obtained through distillation of various plants. According to Healthline, essential oils can have various medicinal properties and are used in homemade cosmetics for more than just a natural scent. For example, we use Tea Tree oil in our Original Blend Beard Sauce because it contains germ-fighting properties and can be used to treat fungal skin conditions, prevent infection, and promote healing.
So, beard oil is designed to eliminate beard itch, moisturize the hair and skin, smell awesome, and help you maintain a healthier lifestyle by using an all-natural product. If you are looking for a healthier, shinier beard for yourself or someone you love, I hope you would consider our Beard Sauce Premium Beard Oil. It is handmade (by us!) in small batches, using all-natural ingredients, right here in the good ‘ol US of A.
