Mr Bear Family’s natural ingredients

Our products are natural or as natural as possible. We believe that it is possible to create great products for hair, skin and beard even if we choose not to work with a significant part of the common ingredients in grooming products. We have gathered information on a selection of the ingredients we do like to use here.

Jojoba oil

Jojoba oil is a common ingredient in skincare products and has many good qualities. But despite its name it’s not an oil but a combination of liquid waxes. The jojoba tree grows in the dryer parts of North America and the wax is extracted from its seeds.

Moisturise both beard and skin

Unlike other oils jojoba oil is similar to the fat that our skin naturally produces. Which is one of the reasons why it’s so popular in skincare. It enters the skin's outer layer and promotes a soft skin by, among other things, binding moisture without clogging the pores. Since your beard will lead moisture from the skin, leading to the classic itchy beard, jojoba oil is very useful in beard products.

We use jojoba oil in several products, simply because it’s great. As we mentioned above, it is similar to the fat that our skin naturally produces which makes the risk of a negative reaction a lot smaller. You’ll find jojoba oil in a wide range of our products, including Beard brew, Beard balm, Beard shaper, Lip balm, Tattoo balm and Tattoo lotion.

Argan oil

Argan oil is a vegetable oil that is extracted from the argan tree. It is rich in fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants, making it an excellent ingredient in skin- and haircare products.

It is often used as a way to soften and moisturise the skin. It can improve the skin's elasticity. Argan oil can also reduce wrinkles and fine lines as well as soothe dry and irritated skin. It is also beneficial in haircare where it can provide nourishment to the hair, strengthen it and in some cases even help to prevent hair loss.

You will find argan oil in several of our products. Including beard brew, beard balm and tattoo balm. These are all products that needs to soothe, soften and moisturise the skin. You will also find argan oil in our conditioner, seeing as it can provide great nourishment to the hair.

Safflower oil

Safflower oil is a vegetable oil extracted from the seeds of the thistle plant, a plant that grows in Europe, North America and Asia. Rich in fatty acids, minerals and vitamins, it has long been used in hair and skin care for its many beneficial properties. In skin care, safflower oil is often used to treat dry and damaged skin. It is rich in linoleic acid, a fatty acid that is important for skin elasticity and moisture balance. The oil also contains omega 6 and 9 which can increase circulation in the hair follicles. It can also moisturise and soften hair.

Safflower oil is one of two signature ingredients (the other one being birch leaf extract) in Classic Selection: Golden Ember. You will find it in almost all of the Golden Ember products.

Birch leaf extract

As the name suggests, birch leaf extract is an extract made from birch leaves. It has been a common ingredient in hair tonics because it leaves the hair soft and shiny. It has also been thought to prevent hair loss or even promote hair growth. Birch leaf extract has also been used in skin care because of its tannin content. These have an astringent and therefore wound-healing effect.
