What is Beard Oil?
Beard oil is a cosmetic product that is used to moisturize the skin under the beard, as well as the beard itself in order to keep it "soft, shiny, and smooth". Beard oil mimics the natural oils produced by skin, such as sebum, and is composed mainly of carrier oils and essential oils.
Oil beard products are a blend of one or more ingredients that are used to address specific beard problems such as itching, sensitive skin or dryness by going straight to the follicle in a similar fashion to hair conditioner.
Beard oil is usually scented (though unscented versions are available) using a variety of natural and artificial scents ranging from sweet to bitter and can be used to substitute cologne or aftershave.
Beard oil acts as a moisturizer that goes straight to the hair follicle and prevents hair from growing brittle, especially in cold, windy environments as these weather conditions cause the natural moisture of the beard area to wick. Hydration around this area helps prevent flaking, dandruff and skin dryness. Some brands of beard oil may contain added vitamins or nutrients such as vitamin E. This moisturization prevents general itchiness and irritation of the skin below the beard.
Beard oil also works below the surface of the skin by working as a grooming tool, making the beard itself more manageable, neat and smooth.
Beard oil also improves the way your beard looks by giving it a little shine. This makes the beard look healthier as well.
What is Beard Balm?
Beard balm is a product with a mixture of several ingredients, most of which include things such as Beeswax, Shea butter, essential oils, carrier oils, and fragrances. Its purpose is to help keep your beard hair soft and healthy, provide control over your beard, tame fly away hairs, as a styling agent and will generally add a little shine. When you use beard balm, your beard will look and present a whole lot better. Instead of looking dry and frizzled out, beard balm will help make sure that your beard simply looks great.
Beeswax in beard balm gives your beard a hold and styling properties to an extent. In addition to giving you a better hold on your beard, beeswax also helps to lock in the moisture given off by the other ingredients in the balm.
Pure Shea butter adds a couple layers of benefits when it comes to beard balm. First off, its extremely rich in moisture. Butters 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. Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, is that butters actually improve the spread ability of the balm itself. Simply put, if butter wasn’t included in beard balm, trying to apply the balm would be an incredibly tough process and take a very long time for the actual wax to melt.
