Beard Balm vs Beard Butter

New to the scene or just not wanting to waste your money on a product you are not sure you need? Well, this blog is for you, we will discuss the differences between Beard Balm and Beard Butter.


Beard Butter is the ultimate beard hydration product. It is a smooth consistency that has been formulated to soften and condition the skin and beard hairs using a blend of sweet almonds, and fragrances Oils with a complex of Shea Butter & Mango.

Beard butter is going to be the better choice if you're looking for a product to care for your beard. It will pack the moisture in and take care of your beard, so if you’re feeling dry or itchy, or you’ve been doing an activity like swimming that you feel might be putting your beard through the wringer, turn to a beard butter to add some hydration back in is a great choice.

Due to the thick viscosity of Beard Balm, applying the product to your beard after heating it in the palms of your hands, can help if you have a patchy-looking beard, being able to manipulate the hairs creating a fuller look, also increasing the healthiness of the skin and beard hair, locking in moisture all day long.

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.

Beard balm is harder than beard butter, and has a way better hold but does less for your skin and beard compared to butter.
