Oil or Balm?
So you've heard of beard care, and maybe even tried some stuff. Your local grocery, or your partner got you something? You've seen stuff on the shelves...
What are you supposed to make of these options?? Well here at The Blessed Beard we seek to create the best, all natural, products a man (or a family) can get! What began as a desire to take care of my skin well, grew into a passion to develop unique and outstanding product for everyone!
We create conditioning oils, and conditioning balms. Either one will bring nourishing properties to your skin, but allow me to explain the difference!
Our conditioning oil is made from a specially created blend of TWELVE distinct carrier oils. The carrier oils help to dilute the essential oils, as pure essential oil can be a skin irritant. The carrier oils used in our blend are:
- jojoba oil
- hempseed oil
- meadowfoam seed oil
- wheat germ oil
- local extra virgin oilive oil
- soy bean oil
- sweet almond oil
- grapeseed oil
- avocado oil
- castor oil
- sunflower seed oil
- apricot kernel oil
These oils, when combined to our ratio, provide your skin with necessary nutrients like fatty amino acids and vitamins (A,E,D). These nutrients nourish the skin, allowing the beard to flourish! This means that the conditioning oils are going to create a softer beard for the user! A claim to fame with these oils is that they do NOT leave your hands or face oily. Instead the product is silky smooth, allowing you to go about your day without that yucky feeling! The oil, though, does not allow for much hold and control of the beard.
The conditioning balm is founded on the same nourishing carrier oil blend. In addition to that nutrient rich base we add:
- coconut oil
- shea butter
- local beeswax
These added ingredients provide some more nutrients (vitamin F, linoleic & oleic acids) only found in the butter, as well has some hold from the beeswax. This means that the balm will have an overall better hold than the oil. While the balm does have some conditioning properties, it functions mainly as a soft hold product. It can be best understood as an all natural lotion that you scrape and warm up, rather than squirt from a bottle!
Both products will condition! And the BEST combination will be one of our Oils + Balm!
Always feel free to reach out if you have any other questions!
