The best beard oil on the market (but we would say that!)
Bear Face Beard Oils are a unique, handcrafted, blend of amazing natural base and essential oils. We offer three very different aromas that have been painstakingly created by us to our very exacting standards. Our 'mad scientist' brains exhaustively researched and sourced the best base and essential oils that would provide the most magnificent skin and beard hair benefits. From those essential oils we subjected our noses to a 'snifferthon', we then shortlisted only the exact combinations of oils that made our nostrils flair with excitement and delight.
We also produce an un-fragranced version called 'Bare Oil' which is the same blend of base oils without any added essential oils. Still amazing for your beard and skin ... just, well ... bare.
WARNING: All of our beard oils contain Argan Oil (Argan oil is extracted from the nuts of the Argan tree, nut allergy sufferers should consult a doctor before use).
As with all essential oils, we suggest you do a patch test before use. If irritation occurs stop use immediately.
Our base oils:
THE FANTASTIC FOUR
All of our Bear Face beard oils use the same wondrous base oils which provide the following benefits:
Apricot Kernel oil is high in Vitamin A and C and it’s awesome at softening and moisturising both your face and beard - taming your grizzly mane! This very light and non-greasy base oil absorbs quickly into the skin, meaning no oil slick to worry about.
Coconut oil is naturally anti-fungal and good for beardruff. It is also great for softening, nourishing and locking in moisture, making it fantastic for you dry bearded sorts. Not only does it smooth any split ends, it can also help reduce protein loss in the hair. Pretty amazing stuff we think.
Argan oil*, you may have heard of this through the media; it is a super oil, rich in vitamins and antioxidants - perfect, we thought. Argan oil has anti-aging and restructuring properties, making it particularly nourishing for dry haired chins. It also has anti-inflammatory and sebum regulating properties, a useful addition to our oils to combat any acne lurking behind the beard and to prevent the dreaded beard itch.
Jojoba oil is another great conditioning and extra softening oil that also works wonders on blocked pores. It is especially protective and is therefore useful for any furry wanderers of the great outdoors or urban bearded chaps exposed to pollution, as it nourishes and protects your facial fluff.
*Argan oil is extracted from the nuts of the Argan tree, nut allergy sufferers should consult a doctor before use.
