Everything we put into our products can be found here. If you have any further questions feel free to ask. No animals were harmed in the making of our products. Mr. Patches (our trusty steed) passed away before we started. God I miss you Mr. Patches.
Beeswax is an essential ingredient for our beard salve and moustache wax. Functionally, it gives your beautiful beard some of that beautiful shape. In the wide open plains, where windswept beards can have you laughed out of a saloon, Beeswax holds fast. No longer will the horses hitched outside mistake you for a tumble weed. Health-wise, the beeswax locks in moisture keeping skin hydrated and firm. Beeswax also contains anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic properties. Yee-haw.
Shea butter is the cream of our crop. The bees of our knees, the bell of the ball, the creamy (not-at-all apple scented) apple of our eye. Shea butter is an emollient (which means to soften or sooth) that protects, lubricates and moisturizes the skin. Keeping your beard and skin properly moisturized relieves the “beard itch” that many experience. Remember “beard itch” is a “B” itch. It doesn’t make you less manly to take care of your skin. Shea butter also brings with it the capacity to absorb limited ultraviolet radiation. A strong green fella used to come into town talking about radiation, he didn’t have a beard so we used Shea butter to chase him out. Worked like a charm.
Think back to the first time you got on Mr. Patches, your trusty horse bought from the guy with magic beans. Mr. Patches was essential in diluting your long travels from town to town. Much like Carrier Oils dilute essential oils, allowing them to be absorbed your skin. Essential oils are volatile things that dissipate almost as soon as they are applied. Carrier oils reduce that dispersion allowing for the health benefits of essential oils to truly be felt. Mr. Patches is dead, but carrier oils will remain a stable (get it?) and reliable part of your beard and life.
Essential oils have historically been used in a wide variety of medicinal and therapeutic remedies. Eucalyptus for example is used world wide as an insect repellent. Lavender is used as an anti-inflammatory. Not only are they used in medicine, they also allow us to impart the scents of nature into our products without needing chemicals. No “formula 7” blend of ingredients, everything comes directly from the wilderness. We feel like you should know what you are putting on your proud and sacred beard, no trickery. Except for snake oil, nobody knows what is in that shit.
