Our Beard OIls
Morrissey's Beard Oil
Barbarossa's Beard Oil
Many people aren’t aware that beard oil even exists, or believe it to be some modern hipster fad, but the truth is its history dates as far back as ancient Mesopotamia where it was common to take great care of your beard. Mesopotamian civilizations would spend hours dying their beards with henna, powdering them with gold-dust, curling them into tiny locks, and using the likes of olive oil to maintain their beard’s health, while the length of a man’s beard would signify his hierarchical status. The Greeks and Native Americans, two other peoples who cherished their beards for reasons related to virility and combatting rough climates, have also documented the use of natural oils obtained from plant matter, including almond and grapeseed, on their beard.
Beard oils serve a two-fold purpose, firstly they are intended to mimic sebum, the natural oil produced by your skin, to keep your face moisturised at the same time as softening, hydrating and conditioning the hair, making it easier to tame while improving the overall look, feel and aroma.
Modern beard oils are predominantly a combination of both carrier and essential oils. Carrier oils are the most important element and make up the bulk of your bottling, and as they provide the core benefits, the overall effect on the health of your beard is largely determined by their presence. They also lend a base to dilute essential oils that are too highly concentrated for use on their own. Essential oils offer up various additional benefits and scents and are typically used in combination to create a unique aromatic profile.
Before selecting the beard oil you think would best suit your needs it helps to know the benefits each bottle possesses. Dr. Adam Elmegirab’s Beard Oils are formulated on a base of Jojoba and Grapeseed carrier oils which I feel combine to make the best platform to build from, working in tandem with an array of essential oils which you’ll find detailed on the individual beard oil pages. These essential oils have been selected to create aromatic profiles that echo my cocktail bitters and offer a variety of benefits to keep your beard soft, shiny, smooth and healthy.
Dr. Adam Elmegirab’s Beard Oil are packaged in 50ml / 1.75oz dropper bottles and are produced using 100% pure essential oils, never using artificial chemicals, oils, or fragrances.
