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'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.

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.

Every one of your claims are true - the lack of staining and smell, the affinity with the skin, and my clients love that they don't get up from the table feeling like greased pigs (my words). Of course, as a massage therapist, none of that would matter if the grip and glide weren't perfect... and they are.

The very best thing about jojoba is that is does not become rancid and aids in the integrity of essential oils.

After 35 radiation treatments I recommended your product to my friend for his burns. Like magic it is soothing and healing the area. Wonderful jojoba. Thank you.

I ordered one gallon of jojoba online yesterday afternoon and I received it this morning at 9:30!!!!!
Thank you so much for your prompt service.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I have had the pleasure of working with your excellent Jojoba for 11 years as a massage therapist and also for personal use. I have occasionally tried other highly regarded massage oils and lotions over the years but always come back to your product. It is simply the best!

The Jojoba esters is an excellent bodywork tool (multiple treatment modalities) as well as at home for my skin. I've even used it to mix with essential oils and given it as a gift.
