A more robust leave in conditioner for your beard made from natural ingredients that are good for your hair and skin. (4 oz).
HOW TO USE IT
Beard balm is best applied after a shower when your beard is towel-dried, but still damp. Scrape about a nickel sized dollop out of the jar with your thumb and place in the palm of your hand (less for short beards, more for long beards). Rub it around in your palms until it is melted, and then apply thoroughly to your beard. Make sure you get all the way through to your skin. Work the balm through your beard (don’t forget the ‘stache). When the balm is thoroughly applied, comb your beard to neaten it out and evenly distribute the oils. Some men like to also use a boar’s hair brush for this purpose.
WHAT’S IN IT:
BEESWAX: Bees make it, so it’s a natural product. It has a nice feel, a light, pleasant smell, and is rich in Vitamin A. It’s what gives beard balm its hold.
SHEA BUTTER: Another natural product that comes from the nuts of the African Karite tree. It’s full of Vitamins A, E and F as well as antioxidents, so it’s great for your skin. It’s often used on its own as an anti-irritant.
COCOA BUTTER: This comes from Cocoa beans and is also used in making chocolates! It, along with the Shea butter, is what gives beard balm its spreading texture and allows it to be absorbed by your beard hair.
SWEET ALMOND OIL: A cold pressed oil made from almonds. It softens and conditions your hair, and is really good for your skin (it’s commonly used in therapeutic massage). It helps prevent itchy, dry skin beneath your beard. It also helps prevent ingrown hairs.
JOJOBA OIL: This is actually a liquid wax. It is very similar to your natural skin oils and therefore is easily absorbed by the skin. It contains vitamins A, D and E, all of which are good for your hair and skin.
ESSENTIAL OILS: Our SANCTUS balm is scented with Frankincense, Myrrh, Cedarwood, and Orange essential oils. A crisp, light scent with notes of cedar and citrus. “His beauty will be like the olive tree and his fragrance like the cedars of Lebanon” (Hosea 14:6).
In other words, it’s all natural stuff that you want to put on your face.
