At Big City Beard's we get asked a lot of questions like: Why should I use beard oil? What works and why?
The BCB Team have put together this blog to best answer those questions above. We are going to explore why organic oils have been used over the centuries to help promote healthy skin & beard hair. We’ll also outline the different ways certified organic oils can be extracted & the multiple benefits of using them.
Why Use Beard Oil?
First and foremost, the purpose of beard oil seems to be a well-kept secret... Organic beard oils have been used for centuries to moisturize your skin and beard hair to help:
- Stop Beard Itchiness
- Prevent Beard “Dandruff”
- Soften, Moisturize Skin & Beard
- Reduce Beard Hair Loss & Breakage
- Promotes Healthy Beard Growth
Organic beard oils are the easiest way, in less than five minutes a day, to maintain a healthy looking and feeling beard. Organic beard oils are an excellent natural source of fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants; it contains everything your skin and beard hair needs to keep hydrated and looking great.
Why Only Certified Organic Ingredients?
In a 2004 study conducted at London’s Imperial College School of Medicine, scientists discovered that the beneficial antioxidants were only found in minimal amounts in most commercially offered non-organic oils. When scientists tested a cold-pressed formula (cold-pressing is the oil extraction process that allows the oil to pass organic certification), they found greater quantities of antioxidants, leading them to conclude that the organic oils can be better in terms of potential health benefits.
At Big City Beards, for example, all of our ingredients used to make our organic beard oil blends are cold pressed using only the highest quality certified organic raw plant material to ensure the highest quality products. Certified organic oils have additional benefits like no residual chemicals from the extraction process and certified organic agricultural practices are better for the environment by not using chemical and synthetic pesticides or fertilizers that can leave a chemical residue within the oil.
But What Does Organic Mean For You?
- Avoid putting any unnecessary or unknown chemicals on your face.
- A superior organic product that is safe and easy to use that just works.
- Reduce the use and impact of chemical based pesticides & fertilizers on the environment.
