A common question we seem to have is,

“what’s the difference between beard balm & beard oil, don’t they do the same thing?”

Whilst they may seem similar, they have different uses.

By the end of this read, you’d have a full understanding of the difference between the two products.


Beard Balm

Our beard balms are made with cocoa butter!

For the extra moisture to nourish your hair follicles, we use beeswax to maintain the hold within your beard. As well as our carrier oils & essential oil blends, a natural remedy for taming any mane.


Beard balm’s, are a medium hold. This help stops any flyaway hairs, keeping your beard in shape.

With cocoa butter and our carrier oil blend, you maximise your volume and stabilise your beard.

Also, to add because our sweet almond oil helps condition your mane at the same time.


So now we know that beard balm is for styling, conditioning and adding volume to your beard, let's move on to beard oil.


Beard Oil


No matter how experienced a beardsman you may be, you must have oil in your collection.


If you have a long beard or even a short beard, using beard oil gets right down to the skin and fights off the beardruff, helping maintain a well-moisturised face beneath your hair.

This is important because it will prevent your skin from drying out.


Our beard oils contain a mix of essential oils, that will soften your facial hair, reduce any itching and add shine to your beard.
