Compare Beard Balm vs Beard Oil


So you've decided that your beard really needs looking after, but how to choose between oil and balm?

Let me put your mind to rest but firstly mentioning that you won't go far wrong if you choose either. And sometimes it really is just about trial and error to see what works for you! At the end of the day we know our products are good but its your beard/skin that will determine what works and what doesn't.

Just one more thing about oils. Our ONLY have premium essential oils and naturally derived absolutes (which are more concentrated forms of essential oils). We don't support the use of unnatural fragrances in our product which are mainly synthetically or chemically derived.  The scent has been expertly mixed so to enhance the overall aroma of the beard oil naturally rather than for any aromatherapy purposes.
