What is Beard Oil?
Every notable beardsman will have used and come across beard oil in their bearded journey. If there is just one product that bearded men have to choose to keep their beard in great shape, it would be beard oil.
A beard oil is a collection of carrier and essential oils that will nourish, hydrate and maintain your beard’s health. This is essential for anyone wanting to reduce beard-growing maladies troubles and keep the beard healthy.
Why are beard oil ingredients good for your beard?Cremo’s beard oils were specifically designed to not only nourish, hydrate and soften facial hair, plus they smell amazing. All Cremo beard oils contain these special ingredients:
- Sunflower Oil
- Jojoba Oil
- Argan Oil

Sunflower OilSunflower Oil is a natural oil that is great for beards as it helps to prevent breakage and hair loss. This oil is particularly rich in Omega, fatty acids and vitamin A,B,C and E, ingredients that keep the hair soft and moisturized.

Argan OilArgan oil benefits your beard in many ways. It adds shine and softness while simultaneously making the beard richer and thicker. Argan oil also helps the skin beneath the beard which can sometimes left neglected.

Is beard oil necessary?We’ve answered how beard oil works and why its ingredients are special, but is it all necessary? If you have or are intending to grow a beard, is this product needed?

However, a lot of beard growers not only have to deal with itch and beardruff, but they also like a hydrated beard, a softer beard, and a beard with no flyaway hairs. That’s why beard oil is so important.
How to use and apply beard oil
It’s not rocket science, but we do have a few hacks for ‘expert level’ application. Beards are generally thicker and bushier than the hair on your head, and we want to make sure every follicle gets the love it needs.
We’re going to assume you’ve showered and applied a Beard and Face Wash prior to application. If this isn’t the case, do everyone a favor and turn on those shower taps.
Using the dropper on our beard oil, pour a few drops into your palm and rub your hands together, paying particular attention to getting the good stuff between your fingertips. Apply in an even manner to your beard, working in with care and massaging into every follicle. For a bonus point, we recommend using a beard brush to help spread the oil evenly and exfoliate your skin at the same time, win, win!
