Lately I've been noticing a great many articles talking about how dirty beards can be and they are right....kinda. If you don't clean and care for a beard then yes, absolutely it can and will be nasty. But, if people don't shower and clean themselves or their hair then they as a whole can be unclean. Same with your mouth, if you don't use basic oral hygiene then your mouth and breath can be unpleasant. Does that mean all people are dirty or have bad oral hygiene? Not at all. Beards are no different than any other part of your body. Take care of it and it'll be clean.
Perhaps there are a few beard owners that have never really though about it or perhaps you are new to having a beard. In reality I think that is a very small percent of people and most people know they should and actually do clean their beard.
The real issue is what makes the best beard shampoo and why?
The problem with using regular soap or shampoo on your beard is that the types of chemicals that get used in their production are damaging to facial hair. The reason for this is that most manufacturers will remove the vital glycerin from the soap and replace it with other not so beneficial synthetics, detergents and harsh chemicals that are bad for you and further contribute to a dry itchy face. They also strip the natural sebum from your facial hair. These are required to keep your beard moisturized and looking alive.
Instead of stripping away the natural properties of your beard and irritating your skin underneath, natural soap and shampoos do the opposite. They gently clean and moisturize.
If left unchecked the natural secretion of sebum will cause things to look greasy and dirty. You want to keep it in check without stripping it all away. The natural soap will clean but not dry things out. The oils used in its creation are needed to avoid things becoming dry, frizzy, or prone to breakage and split ends.
Another issue is dry skin. Although very difficult to eliminate completely, the moisturizing properties of certain natural oils help to relieve beard itch and beardruff.

You can use it at the sink to give your beard a quick clean but best of all it is one product that can be used in the shower for everything, making things simple. What could be easier than cleaning your beard while you shower. Throw it in your gym or travel bag and its all you need. One bottle and no fuss.
Our beard wash is made from all natural ingredients that have been carefully selected due to their beneficial properties.
Sunflower oil is good for so many things. It helps:
Coconut oil is used in soaps for its ability to create lather. It's also a:
Apricot oil is excellent in hair and on skin due to its high amount of nutrients. It is rich in fatty acids, as well as Vitamins A, C, and E.
In hair it aids in growth, adds shine without being greasy, reduces dry scalp/dandruff, and softens hair
Like we mentioned, Glycerin is a big deal and is found naturally in our product. Being a emollient and humectant it is able to draw moisture to the area and then hold it there. Very beneficial for both skin and hair.
An important point is our body/beard/hair wash is Sulfate free.
This is all personal preference but a common number is 3-4 times per week, or every other day. You don't want to over do it because over washing can lead to stripping the natural oils and dry out your beard.
Well, once you've towel dried your beard it would be a good idea to comb it out. This will get rid of any snags. A wooden comb is perfect for this.
Instead of a beard shampoo and conditioner we recommend the shampoo and beard oil and balm. If a good oil and balm can't condition your beard nothing is going to. These are the best beard care products for conditioning and will make sure you have a soft beard. Apply a small amount of oil ensuring even coverage. Make sure it gets all the way down to your face, it needs it too.
Add in a little beard balm to shape things and your done.
