Butters are normally a mix of oils and butters like Shea and Cocoa etc. The natural butters used in beard butters are used to help lock in moisture whilst making sure the beard remains soft and manageable.
Butters also provide a light hold so that you can tame and style your beard. It’s therefore the ideal product for styling and will keep your beard nicely in place.
You can also use butters as a leave in conditioner overnight, obviously you do not want to be drowning in the stuff, so try and use a small amount at a time until you have covered your beard and skin under the beard. Wake up and wash the butter off, and then you can apply beard oil , balm or even more butter for the day ahead.
