Beard Care: What is it?
About 5 years ago, I was lying in bed with my wife watching a movie. I started scratching my beard, then I scratched some more. The more I scratched, the more the skin under my beard became irritated and became flaky. Finally, my wife turned to me and said something that would change my life! She said: “You should buy some beard oil”. At the time, I didn't know beard oil existed.
From that day on, my wife introduced me to a new world of curiosity, discovery and a lot of testing that eventually flourished into whats known today as J’s Beard Essentials. For a guy starting to grow their mane, the beard care world can be discouraging, challenging or will even give you the idea to end your beard’s life. Shaving isn’t the right course of action.
Once you educate yourself, you will feel more confident with beard care. To be honest, buying beard care products will become a compulsive habit (even if it goes against your wife’s wishes). Some of the most popular products on the market are beard oil and beard balm.
What is Beard Oil?
Beard Oil is an oil based male grooming product used to moisturize your beard and the skin under it. Beard oil should contain a mixture of all-natural Carrier Oils and Essential Oils. Though, beard oil has risen in popularity, it’s not a new product. In fact, beard oil has been commercially sold since the 1930's and has been used since the Mesopotamian Civilization (the first civilization of mankind).
