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?

 

Natural Beard Wash


Regular Soap and Shampoo

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.


Natural Soap and Shampoo

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.

All Natural Body and Beard Wash


Why is it so good?

Our beard wash is made from all natural ingredients that have been carefully selected due to their beneficial properties.

 

Sunflower Oil

Sunflower oil is good for so many things. It helps:

  • Prevent thinning of hair 
  • Hold in moisture as well as adding moisture for excellent conditioning, which reduces frizz
  • Improve skin hydration 
  • Decrease sebum production when needed 

    Coconut Oil

    Coconut oil is used in soaps for its ability to create lather. It's also a:

    • natural antibacterial
    • antimicrobial 
    • antifungal
    • a fantastic moisturizer

      Apricot Oil

      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

      Jojoba Oil

      • Jojoba is actually a liquid wax and is extremely close to our bodies natural sebum. 
      • Because of this it helps to regulate the bodies natural production.
      • It's also a natural anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial.
      • When it comes to moisturizing Jojoba gets completely absorbed by skin and hair and locks in moisture.

        Avocado Oil

        • Avocado oil absorbs deep into the skin and helps to keep the skin hydrated for long periods of time.
        • Because it's so easily absorbed it is good for moisturizing dry, damaged hair by deep conditioning and strengthening it. 
        • Dry, itchy scalp/face can also be relieved by applying Avocado oil.
        If you want to see more info on these oils you can find most of them in our other blog articles.

          Glycerin

          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.

          It has:

          • NO parabens. 
          • NO mineral oil compounds. 
          • NO (SLS & SLES). 
          • NO PEGS, PPG or DEA. 
          • NO glycols. 
          • NO phtahlates. 
          • NO synthetic fragrances. We use only high quality essential oils that once again offer their own unique benefits to your body as opposed to being harmful.


          How often should I wash my Beard?

          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.


          So what about Conditioning?

          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.

          Sandalwood Beard Comb


          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.
