About the ingredients:
Sunflower oil is a light yet conditioning oil, rich in linoleic acid, which makes it the perfect carrier oil for this product.
Baobab oil comes from the seeds of the tree by the same name. It’s lightweight, absorbing easily into hair and skin without a greasy look or feel, and packed with essential fatty acids along with vitamins A, D, E and F. Baobab oil tames frizz and deeply moisturizes without weighing hair down—providing a nice shine that isn’t overly glossy. It can also help to strengthen hair, reducing breakage. And its high levels of essential fatty acids soothe and repair skin, which means it helps treat and prevent those unsightly flakes known as beardruff.
Jojoba oil is a botanical extract of the seed of the jojoba tree. Technically it is not actually an oil, but what is called a wax ester. Out of all of the compounds in nature, this wax ester is the most similar to human skin oil (sebum). Jojoba oil strengthens and enhances your beard’s natural oils and decreases the chance of breakage. Used in conjunction with baobab oil, it helps keep your beard soft, healthy and manageable.
Vitamin E oil is a powerful antioxidant. It is nourishing for all skin types and prolongs the shelf life of the product.
Balsam fir essential oil provides a fresh, green, softly balsamic middle note. Also known as the silver fir, Balsam was the first species used for the Christmas tree, but has since been replaced by Douglas and Noble firs. Fir needles are known for their disinfecting properties.
Cedarwood essential oil lends a woody, balsamic base with rich, dry overtones. Cedarwood has a long history as an incense and perfume: it was used by the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans to scent the body and the air.
Peppermint essential oil provides a minty fresh top note. It also contains menthol, which creates a cooling and soothing sensation and boosts circulation to the area, reducing any inflammation.
