What is Beard Balm?
Beard balm is basically a leave-in conditioner, mostly used as a beard styling tool for centuries. But, as science and knowledge evolved, we learned what ingredients are useful for our beard grooming & overall skin health and how to infuse them.
Now, beard balms are considered as beard moisturizer and conditioner that help to keep the beard soft and the skin nourished. But, not all beard balms are made same. Some beard balm does the job so better than the others.
Take a look at our own Leo’s Wicked CBD Beard Balm, which we can confidently say is the best. Why? Please keep reading to learn in detail with research data.
But, before we learn why CBD Beard Balms are the very best, let’s see, what’s the deal with beard balm?
What does Beard Balm do?
A beard balm does the followings:
- It acts as a moisturizer for beard.
- It keeps the beard soft.
- It makes the beard look thin and glossy.
- It keeps any bad odor away.
But, a good beard balm does the followings too:
- It keeps the skin nourished.
- Keeps bacteria and fungus away.
- Makes the beard strongest from inside.
What to Look-for in the Best Bear Balm
Any beard balm out in the market have 4 key elements. They are Wax, some sort of Butter, Carrier Oil and other Essential Oil. While the elements are same, the ingredients used in them are not same. For example, many brands do not infuse some essential oils that should be infused for best results.
However, the following are the criteria that, most experts believe, must be satisfied by a balm to be the best Beard Balm.
1. A beard balm should be all natural.
Natural beard balm is best due to several reasons. It fits with almost all skin types, it helps the beard to be nourished naturally and it is also good for nature. When chemicals are used in any beard balm, you should be cautious about its side effects and studying all the data is really stressful. So, to avoid any hassle and to be safe use all natural beard balms.
2. It should support beard growth
Best beard balms should not be used only for styling purposes. They should support the growth of beard too.
One of the best ingredients that will nourish your beard from inside and will help it to grow stronger is CBD oil that is infused with other essential oils in beard balm. According to The Boss Magazine, ‘CBD oil perfectly combines nutritional and moisturizing properties for skin.’
Our beard is made of Keratin and using CBD beard balm helps to preserve the keratin and makes the follicles stronger.
Fatty acids in CBD beard balm also help to cover up shortage to regular intake of fatty acids which is very important for hair and beard growth.
3. It should make your beard looks great
A good looking beard means it will be clean and free from bad odor.
CBD in beard balm contains good amount of lipids and fatty acids that helps to preserve the moisture of the beard and keep beard free from dust and bad odor.
Linoleic acid, Oleic acid & Palmitic acid in poppy oil ensures that the moisture of your skin and beard is perfect and Frankincense essential oil also helps regulating sebum which ensures you do not look like a hot mess.
4. It has anti-ageing and skin care properties
This can be the single most important determining factor that can rule out the regular beard balms from the competition.
If using a beard balm causes your skin to burn or itch and can’t help you to keep your skin younger and fresh for longer than usual then it is not worth investing.
Luckily, our beard balm has some of the ingredients that have anti-aging and skin care properties. These ingredients have been used in skin care for thousands of years and research have backed their effectiveness. Let’s have a look,
Kokum Butter: These are highly moisturizing ingredients. As they are effective in detecting affected cells and healing them, they prevent wrinkles and loose skin while softening the skin at the same time.
Castor Jelly: It is renowned for water preservation properties. Castor jelly prevents your skin from losing too much water and water helps absorbing harmful germs. As a result, you will enjoy fresh and acne free skin and beautiful beard.
Candelilla Wax: It works as a binding agent and prevents skin from aging so soon.
Frankincense essential oil: Anti-fungal properties of this oil works like magic. It removes bacteria, which is the root cause of skin irritation and acne, from your skin fresh and good looking.
Coriander Oil: Anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and detoxifying elements of coriander oil ensures your skin is free from germs and your beard looks great.
So, here you have all the qualities a good beard balm should have and what specific elements can ensure the balm has the qualities. In our Leo’s Wicked CBD Beard Balm we ensure all the elements are infused perfectly so that, seeing our customers using it other people say, “Wow!!! Your beard looks so manly. What do you use to take care of it?” 😉
