Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Can I use beard oil even though my beard is short?
Yes you can, and you should. Beard oil cares not only for the beard but also for the skin underneath. Jojoba oil clean out the pores, argan oil makes the skin soft and gentle. Apricot kernel oil and almond oil provide moisture and softens the skin and beard.
Are the products ”vegan friendly”?
In our vegan friendly products, we do not have any ingredients derived from the animal kingdom. But the products may have been produced in the same vessels as products that contain animal derived ingredients has been produced in. CIP cleaning is used between all batches. Some of our products contain beeswax and lanolin. Lanolin is extracted from sheep wool and beeswax from bees. For example, the "Beard Brew" is a vegan product.
Are the products eco-friendly?
Some products are all natural, and some are as natural as can be. But they are not 100% organic. This is due to the fact that organic ingredients are not available to a large extent. In order to maintain a consistent product quality level and to offer the customer the same product quality at each purchase, not all ingredients are of organic origin, but some are!

How do you apply beard brew in the best way?
Apply and rub the oil in your palms, quantity as much as needed. Then massage it into the beard. Make sure to massage the oil all the way into the skin underneath and work through the whole beard.
Can you use Beard Balm and Beard Brew together and if so, which should be applied first?
Brew and Balm can definitely be used together. We recommend applying the Brew first and finishing with the Balm to give it softness and a bit of a styling effect.
Grainy Beard Balm
If you experience graininess in the balm; this is not a reflection of the quality of the product, but merely a reaction to temperature fluctuations and is called crystallization. This affects the products texture but not performance. The crystals usually melt again on skin contact.
The oil doesn’t feel thick enough…!?
There are those who think that the beard oil is too "thin" or that it "disappears" too quickly. The problem here is that many misinterpret the oil, when it rapidly sinks into the skin and hair. It is difficult to set an exact amount that should be applied as every beard is unique. Factors such as length, thickness, hair type, etc. play a big role. The best thing would be to figure out what works for you and your unique beard.
The recipe for the beard oil is made so you can apply a few drops to a shorter beard (read stubble) without experiencing the feeling of weight and abundance. At the same time you can apply a larger amount in a longer and coarser beard with the same good results.
What is the difference between "Moustache Wax" and "Beard Stache Wax"?
Moustache Wax is a bit harder and gives the opportunity to create a really nice twisted moustache. Beard Stache Wax provides a lighter styling and makes it easier to get a more natural look.
