Whether or not a natural beard oil can replenish your chin mane isn’t a simple yes or no question. A beard product is only successful if it does what you want it to—and no beard is identical to another. Typically, beard oils work to soften hairs, reduce itching, add shine, and encourage healthy growth. Thus, the type, quality, and concentration of ingredients can make all the difference when it comes to giving your beard a spa day. Depending on your #HairGoals, these three components are what make or break a nourishing beard oil. 

Ingredient Concentration

Among the most effective beard oil ingredients are jojoba and argan. Ask an expert, and hardly will they recommend a product without either component. However, the magic isn’t just in their presence—how much of it makes up your bottle is what maximizes its effectiveness. 

Pure jojoba and argan oils don’t come cheap. If a product’s price tag appears too good to be true, it probably is. A low concentration of either oil isn’t going to moisturize your beard the way it promises. 

Oil Quality

Next to concentration, quality can be a dealbreaker. There are two primary oil extraction methods: cold pressing and solvents. 

Cold pressing is a costly form of extraction and involves pressing the material under extreme pressure. This particular method effectively preserves the oil’s integrity and potency. 

On the other hand, using solvents makes up for the lack of equipment required to perform cold pressing. However, solvents can impact specific ingredients’ effectiveness and even damage oil molecules, which leave impurities behind. 

Unreliable brands will compensate by using high concentrations of low-quality ingredients. 

Type of Oil

There are more than a hundred different ways to mix beard oil ingredients. Of this selection, popular ingredients include the following. 

  • Jojoba Seed Oil: A crowd favorite, jojoba oil is a vegetable wax loaded with Omega-9 fatty acids that protect and reinforce the skin. Jojoba also hydrates and improves texture. 
  • Argan Seed Oil: An all-in-one oil, argan packs hefty amounts of vitamins and antioxidants, hydrating both your skin and beard. It also fights irritation and encourages healthy growth, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 
  • Hemp Seed Oil: A powerhouse ingredient, hemp is strengthening for both your beard and skin. It increases blood circulation in the hair follicles, encouraging healthy growth and improving skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. 
  • Castor Seed Oil: This oil is high in ricinoleic acid, which reduces inflammation and fills scales on the hair shaft. Your beard will look healthier, happier, and fuller. 
  • Clary Oil: The majority of men have oily skin, and yes—you can fight oil with oil. Clary oil helps to regulate natural oil production and achieve balance. 
  • Eucalyptus Leaf Oil: Eucalyptus boasts antiseptic properties that keep your beard and skin fresh and clean. It also helps shrink blemishes and fights irritation. 

  • Conclusion

    Ideal beard oil isn’t just a concoction of the best ingredients on the market. Manufacturers consider concentrations and extraction methods to create an excellent balance that thickens and enriches the skin and beard. 

    The Unshaved's replenishing beard oil is an undeniable hit that keeps your beard looking alive even during the harshest seasons. Ourbeard and skin products aim to reinvigorate and restore, helping you achieve that ultimate lumberjack chic.
