Any man who takes beard care seriously knows that maintaining healthy skin is just as important as properly maintaining the facial hair itself. The reality is that dry, irritated or inflamed skin can wreak havoc on the beard in a number of ways. For one thing, these issues can cause the beard to itch profusely, which can cause a man to scratch his facial hair area due to extreme discomfort. Even worse, however, is that poor skin health can interfere with a beard’s ability to grow properly, while causing follicles to become damaged to the point that patches of hair fall out. Additionally, inflamed, dehydrated skin can lead to ingrown hairs, and who wants that?
Today, we’re going to discuss allantoin. Allantoin is a unique chemical compound that has the ability to relieve the skin of symptoms like irritation and inflammation while drastically boosting the skin’s moisture levels.
What’s Allantoin Anyway?
Allantoin is a chemical compound that is derived from the comfrey plant. It’s known for its natural healing properties that soothe irritation and inflammation. One thing that’s unique about allantoin is that it’s universally non-irritating, while so many plant-based compounds can cause irritation on sensitive skin.
Allantoin is an emollient, which means that when it’s applied to the skin, it produces a layer of moisture that sits on the surface, while its chemical properties go deep into the skin’s many layers. Due to this top layer of moisture that it creates, the skin is simultaneously protected from moisture loss and irritation caused by external factors.
So, what does this have to do with your beard? Well, when allantoin is applied to the skin, it can reduce the symptoms associated with skin conditions that can directly influence your beard. Like we said earlier, irritation, inflammation and severe dryness can all cause hair loss as well as growth issues. Therefore, allantoin can directly improve the health of your beard when applied on a regular basis.
How’s Allantoin Formulated and Used in Products?
Allantoin is just one compound in the comfrey plant, and it’s extracted via various extraction methods. Because it’s both water and alcohol soluble, it can be included in a wide range of formulations. It’s actually present in most skincare products that are on the market, as well as topical products intended for soothing irritation, such as aftershave products and diaper rash creams.
