Jojoba, the Perfect Beard Oil

Technically jojoba is a wax ester and not an oil but we’ll call it an oil in this post to avoid confusion because Beard Oil is the name of the type of product we're discussing.

If you have a beard you’ve probably heard about beard oil and if not - where have you been? Beard oil is perfect for moisturizing the skin and softening the beard hair, making it looked shiny and groomed. If you have trouble with itchy, flaky skin, under and around your beard, and/or unruly and dry facial hair you would definitely benefit from using a beard conditioning product.

Jojoba, the Perfect Beard Oil

Jojoba makes the perfect beard oil on it’s own or when mixed with other oils and essential oils. Jojoba has many properties that make it valuable as a conditioner for the beard. It conditions and softens both the facial skin and the facial hair. Jojoba is also non-comedogenic and non-allergenic so it will not block pores and shouldn’t cause skin irritation. Jojoba is also reputed to strengthen the hair shaft and clean the hair follicle, which is important if you’re trying to maintain a long beard.

How to use jojoba on your beard:

If your skin and facial hair are excessively dry apply, massage a few drops of jojoba into your beard and skin, let it penetrate for 30 minutes or overnight. Wash/shampoo your beard as usual.

If your skin and facial hair isn’t overly dry, massage a few drops of jojoba into your damp beard and on skin after showering.

If needed, add a few drops of jojoba to your beard throughout the day, especially if you have trouble with dry skin and hair.

Your hair/skin should not feel greasy or oily, if it does, shampoo and use less product in the future. You will be able to determine the correct amount that works best for your personally. We recommend starting with a few drops and working up as needed. Feel free to mix a few essential oils in with your jojoba, spicy scents would be perfect, sandalwood is one of our favorites.

Fue Gotee over on the Beard Board forums recommends using this method for using jojoba in facial hair: “take a wet brush and brush up from underneath my chin so that the hairs stand on end like I was exposed to a massive field of static electricity. Then I put a few drops on my bristles of the brush and continue brushing outward until I'm certain I've distributed the oil as best I could. Then I stroke the goatee down with my hand and I'm done. One of the best things is that there's no odor to the stuff”

Do you use any kind of product to maintain your facial hair? Have you tried using jojoba?

I love how it absorbs into the skin and leaves it silky smooth, what a fantastic carrier it is for essential oils, that it doesn't go rancid, so my sheets remain sweet-smelling and that the (jojoba) is so stable with an incredible shelf-life. What's not to love?

I did a lot of research on what to use on my skin and then where to get it. I know I made the right choice.

After few days of using it, I must admit that the product has proved itself beyond my expectations! My 4 year old son was suffering from a red bottom due to frequent wetting. Since I've used the Jojoba, his skin is bright, clean, and with no signs of red. I'm very grateful to you.

I've ordered jojoba before and your jojoba is leaps and bounds above any other. I could immediately feel the difference in the way it looks, smells & feels on my skin. The first thought in my head was that this is truly an elegant product. I'm glad I purchased it.

I started out trying the jojoba on an older leather day planner that I have. It is in very good condition, so I didn't think I would see much of a difference. Boy, was I wrong! I didn't realize how dull it was until I used the jojoba on it.

Thank you so much for providing a wonderful product. I have been using your golden jojoba in my skincare products for many years and all my customers (and me) love it.

We have been using Hobacare for nearly two years now and have found our family's skin is amazing looking - which is truly a feat considering the eczema and dry skin that so plagues us!

I also feel good that by using your product I'm doing everything I can to protect the new mother and delicate new life in my care - no chemicals, preservatives, or pesticides here, thank you very much.

Sara Garvin, LMT

I continue to be impressed with your company and the high standards that it promotes. Your responsiveness to questions, shipping and customer service is top notch. Thank you for everything.

The results were instant! My hair not only had sheen, but totally eliminated the friz!
I threw away all of the other goopey hair gels.
