If you’re shopping for beard oil at LA Roots Oil, it’s important to you pay close attention to the ingredients. After all, a beard oil is only as good as the unique ingredients that it contains, which means that which product you choose can make or break the overall health of your facial hair.
At LA Roots, we go out of our way to source the most high-quality, natural ingredients that we can find. These ingredients have been proven by science to have positive effects on both the look and feel of your precious beard.
So, which ingredients should you be looking for while you shop for a beard oil? Allow us to break down the three key ingredients that make a tremendous difference.
Why Ingredients Matter
We like to think of ourselves as rugged and resilient. While that may be the case when it comes to our personalities, it’s not necessarily true as far as our beards and skin are concerned. Skin and facial hair need a lot of nourishment and gentle, soothing ingredients. That’s because our skin cells and hair follicles are rather delicate and are therefore prone to damage.
Lots of commercial beard care products load their formulas up with fillers that are derived from synthetic chemicals. Most of the commonly used ingredients, such as sulfates, petroleum and synthetic fragrances, aren’t doing anything positive for your beard or skin. In fact, many of the commonly used filler ingredients are actually quite drying and irritating, which can ultimately result in skin inflammation and hair loss.
That’s why natural, gentle ingredients are so important. These plant-derived ingredients are naturally rich in nutrients, and they nourish your beard and skin deep beneath the surface.
We at LA Roots understand that your beard and skin need a lot of plant-based nourishment in order to be as healthy as possible. That’s why we proudly use natural ingredients such as plant-derived oils, vitamin E and natural fragrances that are derived from essential oils and botanical extracts. These ingredients give your beard that healthy appearance that you’re looking for, only without stripping away moisture in the process.
Ingredient #1: Natural Oil Extracts
Beard oils, as you would imagine, contain, well, oils. But, there are a lot of different types of oils out there, and some are natural while others are synthetic. It should go without saying that the more natural, the better. Natural, plant-based oils do more than hydrate the skin and facial hair – they contain highly beneficial nutrients such as vitamins and antioxidants that feed your skin and beard what they need.
Natural oil extracts that are great for your beard and skin include olive oil, argan oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil and grapeseed oil. Each of these oils is unique in terms of its nutritional makeup, and each one benefits your skin and beard in its own fascinating way. At LA Roots, we use a unique variety of natural oil extracts so that you can get as much nourishment as possible.
Ingredient #2: Vitamin E
Vitamin E is an essential nutrient that has been proven to improve the health of your skin and hair. For one thing, it’s a powerful anti-inflammatory, which means that it can calm skin irritation while combating issues like acne and eczema. And, when it comes to your facial hair, vitamin E can protect each strand against damage caused by factors like heat, humidity and dry weather.
Vitamin E is also naturally moisturizing. This means that applying it to your beard will dramatically improve the hydration level of your facial hair. More hydration means a shinier, softer and more luxurious beard.
Ingredient #3: Fragrance
Fragrances are optional, but many men prefer to use scented beard oils because they help them smell great while rocking a gorgeous beard. The fragrances that we use come from essential oils and botanical extracts. In other words, they’re as natural as they come.
Essential oils and botanical extracts do a lot more than help you smell amazing. They contain terpenes, which are chemical compounds with unique healing properties. Many of these essential oils and botanical extracts calm irritation, reduce inflammation and kill bacteria and fungus that exist on the surface of the skin.
A Man’s Beard Deserves Only the Best When It Comes to Beard Oil…
