Beard Balms: What are they and why use them?

Beard Balms: What are they and why use them?

There is a huge range of beard products available to anyone looking to grow, style and maintain a proud beard, but it can be overwhelming which product may be right for you. The Savage Alchemist is here to help you through the process and today we will be talking about Beard Balms.

What are Beard Balms?

Beard balms are usually a combination of solid oils, liquid oils, essential oils and beeswax. Not only do they offer great conditioning and moisturising for your skin and beard, they contain a secret ingredient. Beeswax. This is the most crucial part as it's what offers the styling ability to make your beard look the best. Different balms have different hold strengths. Some are a light balm which help keep those stray hairs down in an orderly fashion. Some offer a heavier hold to give you even more styling opportunities. It is trial and error to find which one works best for you but also the length of your beard is important to consider!

The Balms available at Savage Alchemy offer a medium hold. Enough to give you the styling capability to craft your beard the way you want but doesn't turn it into a solid block of a waxy mess. They're also crafted with nourishing shea butter, cocoa butter and a secret blend of oils to offer you the best balm in the world.

Why use a Beard Balm?

If you've just started on the journey to growing a beard, you might not need a Beard Balm straight away. It's only until you get to the length that it starts to become wild is when you should start to consider using a balm. If you're having an especially bad beard day, a Beard Balm can help you keep it under control. Keeping those stray wandering hairs can be a pain but with enough styling hold from the balm will allow you to make it look it's absolute best. A perfect combination is a beard balm and a boar bristle brush to make sure the balm covers every individual hair and keep them lying down straight. A decent balm is a necessity in a bearded man's repertoire and even better when you're also using a beard oil and butter!
