Natural Beard Care: The Benefits of Organic Beard Oils and Beard Balms
The Benefits of Organic Beard Oils and Beard Balms
In the world of men's grooming, the beard is a symbol of style and identity. Over the years (especially since 2012 when the revival of beards was apparent), the need for proper care became increasingly important. One of the cornerstones of effective beard care is the use of beard oils and beard balms, especially those crafted with natural and organic ingredients.
In this blog, we delve into the various benefits of using organic beard oils and beard balms, a choice that not only elevates your grooming routine but also contributes to your overall well-being. We also want to highlight that in the world of cosmetics, natural doesn't always have to be the top option as we combine smart science in our formulas, but our 10 years experience in the beard care industry has led us to the conclusion for this particular category natural continues to outperform in every way.
The Benefits of Organic Beard Care Ingredients
Organic beard oils are derived from ingredients grown without synthetic fertilisers or pesticides. This means they are free from potentially harmful chemicals, offering a pure and natural option for your skin and beard. Applying beard oil so close to the nose and mouth means extra care is important when selecting a beard oil or balm.
The benefits of using organic beard oil and balms are numerous:
Gentle on the hair and skin
Organic beard oils and balms are formulated with natural ingredients that are kinder to your skin and hair. Unlike synthetic products, they are less likely to cause irritation, dryness, or allergic reactions, making them suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. It is important to also consider the essential oil blends in your beard care products by looking at the allergen listing.
Rich in Nutrients
Natural oils, such as argan, jojoba, and sweet almond oil, are packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and fatty acids that nourish the beard and skin. These nutrients promote healthier hair growth, add natural shine, and prevent breakage.
Depending on the concentrations of these types of oils, you'll experience more benefits. While some beard oils may contain argan oil, it could be in the formula at a very low percentage due to it's cost. Our Australian made beard oils contain upwards of 30% certified organic argan oil in it's purest form so you receive the maximum benefits.
Hydration and Moisturising Properties
Organic oils are exceptional moisturisers. They help to hydrate the skin beneath the beard, preventing flakiness and dandruff, often referred to as "beardruff." Regular use of these oils keeps the skin supple and the beard soft, reducing itchiness and irritation. To learn more about how to get rid of beard itch, we wrote a dedicated blog to it.
Promotes Healthier Beard Growth
Organic beard oils often contain ingredients that stimulate healthier beard hair growth. Consistent use of a high quality natural beard oil or beard balm can result in a fuller, healthier beard over time. While we're on the topic of beard growth, it's good to note that no beard oil, beard balm, or beard growth pill will make your beard grow faster. With so many products on the market promising this without any scientific evidence to back it up, we feel it's our duty to highlight this.
Using a quality beard care product simply gives your beard the best chance of healthy growing conditions and hair growth.
Eco-Friendly and Sustainable
Choosing organic beard oils is not only beneficial for you but also for the environment. Organic farming practices are designed to reduce pollution and conserve water, ensuring a lesser environmental footprint. We work with local Australian and international farmers who are growing sustainably and also protecting indigenous natives such as Australian Sandalwood.
No Harmful Additives
Many non-organic beard oils include additives like parabens, sulfates, and artificial fragrances, which can be harsh on the skin and hair. Organic oils are free from these harmful additives, offering a clean and natural alternative. No one size fits all approach should be taken, so it's important to choose products that work best for you and suit your needs.
Making the Right Choice for Your Beard
When selecting a beard oil or balm, it's essential to read the labels and understand the ingredients. Reach out to the company with any questions, and see what they have to say. We believe all reputable companies will be more than happy to share their passion and education of the product and industry with you so you can make an informed decision.
Look for oils and balms that are listed first, indicating their prominence and concentration in the formula. Also, consider the scent of the oil or balm. Organic beard oils and beard balms use natural essential oils for fragrance, which can offer therapeutic benefits in addition to a pleasant aroma if the company is using the highest purity and unprocessed cold pressed essential oils.
Organic beard oils and beard balms are a superior choice for the bearded gent who values not only his appearance but also his health and the environment. By incorporating these high quality and natural oils into your beard care routine, you're choosing a path of natural nourishment, responsible consumption, and sustainable care for your beard.
