Go Natural for Beard Care

Why Natural Ingredients are Better for Your Beard Care Routine

It's essential to choose the right products for your facial hair. You should avoid parabens, which can disrupt hormones, PEG compounds that are linked to cancer, and formaldehyde, which is commonly used as a preservative and can be neurotoxic. Instead, opt for products that contain quality natural ingredients as they are better for the health of your beard and skin.

Here are six powerful natural ingredients that provide a wide range of benefits:

ARGAN OIL.  This is a powerful ingredient that is rich in antioxidants and vitamin E.  This oil moisturizes and nourishes hair and skin and can reduce the signs of aging with its anti-inflammatory properties.

AVOCADO BUTTER.  This natural plant butter hydrates with vitamins A, D, and E. Natural fatty acids help reduce breakage and increase shine.

CANOLA SEED OIL. Loaded with vitamins and minerals, this oil contains oleic and linoleic acids that deeply moisturize and improve the texture of the beard and skin.

JOJOBA SEED OIL. This lightweight oil helps regulate oil production and tackle dandruff and skin irritation.

MORINGA BUTTER. With anti-inflammatory properties, this butter contains high amounts of oleic acid and moisturizes and softens the hair and skin.

SHEA BUTTER.  This butter is rich in vitamins and fatty acids and provides exceptional anti-inflammatory agents to hydrate and soothe.


Your Product Label: DECODED

Deciphering product labels can be tricky. How do you identify the effective products? Have you noticed labels like 'vegan,' 'cruelty-free,' or 'all-natural'? Do you pay as much attention to product labels as food labels? Let’s look at some label definitions you should look for when choosing your beard care products.

The word "Natural" emphasizes the absence of artificial ingredients and celebrates all things natural.  Choosing dye-free and skin-safe fragrances can help reduce irritation.  "Vegan" products can calm irritated skin, offer vital nutrients, and steer clear of animal-derived ingredients. Always check for the ‘cruelty-free’ label, ensuring no animals were harmed during testing.

Other great terms to consider are ‘handmade,’ ‘naked label,’ and ‘recycled container.’ Opt for bee-free and palm-free products to support environmentally conscious and socially responsible efforts. The sourcing of palm oil is linked to deforestation and labor rights concerns.


Use Natural Ingredients and Essential Oils Safely

Everyone’s skin is unique, and responses to products can vary. It is strongly recommended to conduct a skin patch test before using any new product, whether natural or not. To start, wash the skin and apply a small amount of product. Wait 24 hours. If you experience irritation such as rash, redness, or itching, wash the area immediately and contact your doctor.

Some products may increase sun sensitivity, so it’s advisable to protect the skin from direct sun exposure. After using Bergamot Essential Oil, Grapefruit Essential Oil, Lemon Essential Oil, and other phototoxic oils, it’s recommended to avoid sun exposure for at least 12 hours.

Essential oils are not advisable for use for those pregnant and nursing as they may cause uterine contractions.  Please consult a physician. Additionally, individuals with conditions such as cancer, heart-related ailments, skin disorders, hormone-related ailments, or epilepsy should seek medical advice before using our products.  The same applies to those taking prescription drugs or undergoing surgery or at a higher risk of stroke, heart attack, or atherosclerosis.  To ensure the safety of children, please store products in an inaccessible area.

Natural and vegan grooming products are designed for external use only.  Avoid using products near the eyes, inner nose, ears, and other sensitive areas.  Consult with a doctor before using any products to ensure well-being. These precautionary measures can help avoid possible allergic reactions or skin irritations.
