Does Beard Oil Actually Work?

Have you ever heard of the term beard oil, but skeptical beard oil actually works?

The first time I started to grow a beard, I wanted to know what I could put on it to make it look presentable and to stop the itch. Again, this thing’s going to be on your face so you want it to look good and feel good, right? So I searched google for “what to put on my beard” and beard oil popped up as the first result. Once I saw the term beard oil, I was literally scratching my beard wondering what beard oil is all about. First off, my beard was starting to grow just fine so why should I add beard oil to my daily routine? 

So, let’s dive right into what beard oil actually is and learn why you will seriously want to consider adding it to your daily beard grooming regime.


First let’s take a look at what ingredients can be found in beard oil. There are typically two main ingredients that make up the entire product. 

Carrier oil: Beard oils can consist of multiple carrier oils like Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil, and Almond Oil. There are numerous carrier oils available on the market that each have their own unique benefits.  Carrier oils like Jojoba and Aragan oil moisturize the skin underneath your beard and are effective to eliminate irritation, flaking, beard itch and will make your skin healthier.

Also it is good to know that when you grow out a longer beard the skin on your face cannot keep up with the demand of producing enough sebum oil (which is the oil found naturally in your skin). Since there’s less sebum oil production in your skin, its best to use a carrier oil to supplement your natural oil production. 

Essential oils: Just like carrier oils, essential oils give you additional benefits for your skin and your beard. For an example, essential oils like tea tree make a great antiseptic and can help clear up any unwanted acne that you may have on your face. There are hundreds of essential oils out there, so you definitely have a ton of room to explore when it comes to discovering new scents. These oils are excellent at making your beard smell absolutely amazing.

  • Vitamin E: Dermatologists’ affirm that Vitamin E is a remarkable remedy in case your beard has split ends. Split ends are brought about by a combination of distinct sources such as over washing with harmful shampoos, lack of beard treatments, detrimental beard products and blow-drying. Vitamin E will ensure your beard remains smooth and moisturized. Vitamin E oil deeply hydrates and conditions your hair and skin, treating conditions such as beard dandruff. If you use oils rich in vitamin E on a daily basis, then you are guaranteed that your beard will remain dandruff free. Using a beard oil rich in Vitamin E will prevent your skin from becoming flaky and dry. The oil will also make your hair look fresher and healthier.
Vitamin E also helps to stimulate beard hair growth. Vitamin E helps increase blood circulations to that precise area of the body. A steady and healthy blood supply to the face stimulates the growth of beard hair.

Daily application of beard oil should begin as soon as you decide to grow your beard, because it is also an excellent skin conditioner. The best time to apply beard oil is after a hot shower, when your hairs are the cleanest and softest; this is when your skin and hair most easily absorbs beard oils. We recommend using beard oil at least twice a day.

  1. Pour out your desired amount of beard oil into the palm of your hand.
  2. Simply rub your hands together to ensure there will be an even distribution of oil applied into your beard.
  3. Start from the root of your hair follicle. It’s important to get to the base of your beard as it will make sure that your skin will also receive a lot of great nutrients from the oil. Work your way from the skin to the tips of your beard hair.
  4. To evenly distribute the beard oil, you will want to use a beard brush or a beard comb.
