  • How to Use Beard Balm

    To start, what is beard balm, and why are you using it? At ManBeast, it’s no secret that our primary focus is on Beard Oils. We’ve carefully tailored them to different body chemistries in order to help everyone reach their full potential in the shortest amount of time. Beard Oil is all about providing the nutrients your beard needs to grow quickly, be healthy, and look great.

    Beard Balm, on the other hand, is mostly about lightly styling and taming strays. While our Lion Tamer Premium Beard Balm contains some of the same ingredients as our Custom Oil Blends along with unrefined mango butter for additional nourishment, it also contains bees wax to provide some hold. Because it’s nut-free and hypoallergenic, it’s the perfect compliment to any of the ManBeast Custom Beard Oils.

    Think of it this way: Oil will nourish your beard while providing a small amount of style. Balm will help style your beard while providing a small amount of nourishment.

  • Better Bearding Through Chemistry

    ***Disclaimer***Science Geek Post***You’ve Been Warned****

    I promise to be as brief as possible. If you want to move on with your day, here is the Cliff’s Notes version: Linoleic Acid (LA), alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), and gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) are very good for you (both overall health as well as skin/hair health). Also Vitamins A and E. Our four Custom Oil Blends contain different amounts of these nutrients for different situations.

  • "Natural Ingredients" vs. "Naturally Sourced Ingredients"

    Many premium cosmetic brands boldly claim to use “100% Natural Ingredients.” While this certainly sounds great, not to mention official, what does it really mean? It may surprise you to learn that there is no official US government regulation for the term.

    As an example, let’s take a look at Vitamin E, which everyone knows is a great moisturizer for both skin and hair...
