What is Beard Oil?

Beard oil has become increasingly popular in recent years as more men embrace facial hair. The product is designed to soften and moisturize the beard while keeping it healthy and handsome.

Beard oil is a conditioning oil that moisturizes facial hair and skin underneath. It is a blend of carrier oils, essential oils, and fragrance oils that are designed to penetrate the hair shaft and improve the health of the beard. The carrier oils are derived from plants and include jojoba, argan, grape seed, castor, and coconut oils. These oils are rich in vitamins and minerals such as vitamin E that improve the health and appearance of the beard. Broken Top beard oils are made with jojoba oil, grape seed oil, vitamin E, and essential oil infused fragrance oils to give you your softest (and best-smelling) beard yet.

How to Use Beard Oil

1. Wash and Dry your Beard

Before applying the beard oil, wash your beard with a gentle facial cleanser and dry it with a towel. Pat it dry until it is almost completely dry. Slightly damp hair will help the oil penetrate more effectively than soaking wet hair.

2. Dispense Oil into Palm

Put a few drops of beard oil in the palm of your hand, depending on how large your beard is. You can always add more, and as you use it, you will figure out just how much your beard needs.

3. Apply to Your Beard

Rub your hands together, spreading the oil evenly on your palms and fingers. Massage the oil into your beard, making sure it gets to your skin underneath. Use your fingers or a comb or brush to spread the oil more evenly and to help it get to more stubborn parts of your beard.
