Rick Hughes

'I use beard balm daily to help with my fly-away hairs, I only have a short beard maybe 2 inches, but using beard balm as part of my daily routine just before I got to work really helps to control my hair in any situation I will face throughout the day. Added benefits of keeping the beard healthy and smelling really nice is also great.'

Jonathan North

'Personally, I tend to use the bay rum scented beard balm after my morning shower, I rinse my beard with water only, then pat down with a towel, whilst still damp ill put in the balm and it really makes a difference, my beard hairs do not get brittle and stay soft through the day, and have a level of control.'

Due to the thick viscosity of Beard Balm, applying the product to your beard after heating 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.

The Good Stuff

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.

In addition to giving you better hold on your beard, beeswax also helps to lock in the moisture given off by the other ingredients in the balm. If beeswax is primarily for the hold, then the butter is for spreadability. This isn’t the typical dairy butter that you may have in the fridge.  Instead, the butter used in beard balm is usually along the lines of a shea or cocoa butter. Also found in our Beard Butter product.


But not the spreadable kind

Carrier oils and butter help provide an ample amount of moisture for your beard. This is critical, especially if you live in a cooler or dry climate. The butter in beard balm makes sure that your beard will remain healthy throughout the day.

Carrier oils are where you are getting much of the benefits of any decent beard balm. Complimenting the butter used, a carrier oil will make your beard incredibly soft and healthy looking.

Carrier Oils

What is carrier oil? Carrier oils come from several different types of plants, the most common being jojoba, argan oil, sweet almond oil, etc. Also found as the core ingredient in our Beard Oil, carrier oils' core purpose is to nourish your beard. If it's your first ever time using beard balm a great beginner carrier oil to look out for is either jojoba or argan oil.

Especially if you have very sensitive skin, jojoba in particular is just about as close to an all-natural ingredient that you can use that closely resembles the natural sebum oil that your skin produces. This greatly reduces any chance of having an allergic reaction – it's generally recommended to do an allergy patch test before applying any new products to your skin on a regular basis.
