Beard Butter vs Oil
When it comes to beard care products, there is an abundance of choices on the market. Sometimes it can be a little confusing picking the correct product that will give you the desired results you’re looking for. Hopefully this blog will help when it comes to choosing either a Beard Oil or a Beard Butter.
To start off, Beard Butter and Beard Oil are both designed to help you achieve a healthy and awesome looking beard. However, there are a few differences we thought we'd share. Let's take a look….
WHAT IS BEARD OIL?
Beard Oil is a personal care product that is used as a leave in conditioner to moisturize the skin under the beard, as well as the beard itself in order to keep it healthy, soft, shiny and moisturized. Beard oil mimics the natural oils produced by the skin, such as sebum, and is composed mainly of carrier oils and essential oils.
Beard oil can be used to address specific beard problems such as itchiness, sensitive skin, dryness or dandruff.
Beard oil acts as a moisturizer that goes straight to the hair follicle and helps prevents hair from growing brittle. The natural carrier oils in beard oil improves the way your beard looks by giving it a little shine, helps to promote healthy hair growth and makes the beard and skin underneath look and feel healthier.
WHAT IS BEARD BUTTER?
Beard butter is generally made up of all natural oils and butters. Our beard butters contain Shea and mango butters to serve as a deep conditioner to soften and deeply hydrate both your beard and the skin beneath. Beard butters instantly absorb into the beard hairs and contribute to that healthy, shiny and more manageable appearance. Our all in one deep conditioning beard and body butter is also excellent to alleviate dry skin on your hands, body, and even to keep your tattoos moisturized and vibrant.
Beard butters generally provide a light hold to help tame flyaway hairs and to help shape your beard. Our beard butters do not contain beeswax which makes it is easy to spread and has a soft butter like consistency. This soft consistency will ensure full coverage to your hair follicles, skin and facial hair which helps to hydrate, deep condition, and soften your hair and the skin beneath. Beard butter is the perfect option if you're looking to deeply condition and add a little shape to your beard. Beard butter will make your beard softer, fuller, and healthier.
Beard oil and beard butter are both great products. It comes down to what look and results you're going for. If you want to tame flyaway hairs and add a little shape beard butter may be the choice for you. If you want to eliminate beard itch, irritation and are looking to promote healthier skin and beard growth, beard oil may be the the right choice.
We recommend adding both to your beard care routine, since they each have different uses and benefits. Beard butter is excellent to use at night before bed to deeply hydrate your facial hair and skin. Beard oil is great to use during the morning or day to keep the skin underneath your beard healthy, eliminate dryness and add softness to your beard.
