Balm v. Butter
If you are looking to expand your grooming beyond beard oils, balms and butters are the next logical step. Although similar, balms and butters provide different benefits depending on your beard and preferences. So how do you know which is best for you? Lets take a look at them both.
Beard balm provides great hold, helps keep your beard conditioned, tames flyaway hairs, and is great at locking in moisture to keep the hair from drying out. It also doubles as a styling agent, providing a firm hold to your facial hair. Our beard balm is made with a mix of several ingredients, most of which include olive oil, sunflower oil, shea butter, mango butter, beeswax, and various essential oils.
Beard balm will provide a well groomed, sharp appearance and a firm hold for all beard lengths.
Beard butter is made up of natural butters and oils, providing a more gentle hold that is not as strong as the beard balm due to it having no beeswax or other ingredient. The main components are shea and mango butters and the natural oils. Beard butter serves as a deep conditioner to soften and moisturize both your beard and the skin beneath. The natural butters and oils that we use absorb into the beard hair giving the beard a fuller appearance.
Because beeswax is not a part of beard butter, beard butter has more a creamy texture without a greasy look. This soft consistency will ensure full coverage to your hair follicles, skin and facial hair which helps to hydrate, deep condition, and soften your hair and the skin beneath.
Beard butter is the perfect option if you're looking to manage beard itch, dry skin or dandruff while providing a soft and natural look.
What Should I Choose?
If you want a firm hold for a longer beard to keep it looking great all day long, then beard balm is what you want.
If you have a shorter beard or want a natural look and softer hold that soothes the skin underneath, beard butter is the choice.
