Since day 1, care for our customers has been a pillar at The Bearded Savant. Suffice it to say, it’s been a journey. We have worked tirelessly to develop a collection that will meet the needs of every man. We do this by sourcing quality ingredients and developing quality scents. So it brings me great joy to announce that we have made one giant leap forward to provide our customers with the best of the best. Starting the first of the year we have moved to USDA Organic carrier oils, butters, and waxes.Read More

Every bearded savant product was designed with one idea in mind: Creating the best damn product for your skin and beard. This is why the ingredients in our products are primarily moisturizers. People with experience in the skin care industry are always nodding their head in agreement as I list off our carrier oils and butters—jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, Shea butter, cocoa butter, and beeswax. These ingredients not only make amazing men's grooming products (which they do) but more generically, they are the base of premium skin products!
Today, I want to share some non-traditional uses for our products. These are safe ways to apply our products to your body for reasons that have nothing to do with facial hair. Spoiler-alert: most of these suggestions have come from the wives of men who use our products.Read More
Today, we want to step out of generalities and step into specifics. Now, we are going to look at specific maladies. Below we list the most common maladies affecting bearded savants (such as yourself), the scent most apt to address it, and the key essential oil in that scent. Disclaimer: Everyone's skin is different and below are recommendations. So, if you have a malady listed below, give our recommendation a shot, if it works, Fantastic! Let us know! If it doesn't, feel free to reach out to us and we'll try and find something that might work better for you.Read More
Let's look at the age old question, "Why does my beard itch?" The reason I hear the most from men about why they don't have a beard is itchiness. So, why does it happen and how can we fix it? Not all itches are created equal, so let's look at them one at a time.Read More
Let me start by being honest: I've been really looking forward to writing this post for longer than I'd like to admit. The reason you should apply beard oil right after a shower is a beautifully complex physics problem that highlights the utter simplicity of nature. Like all natural science, it boils down to a complex simplicity, and I love it.Read More
WHAT IS BEARD OIL?
Beard oil is a mix of carrier and essential oils. It is intended to keep the skin beneath your facial hair healthy, which in-turn keeps your facial hair healthy. Yes, facial hair. Beard oil is not specific to beards, it can be used on any type of hair—some friends of The Bearded Savant even use our products on their scalp and as a (gasp!) deodorant in the underarm.Read More
The combination of carrier oil, essential oil, butters, and beeswax create the two product families—oil and balm—that can help an uncomfortable, dull, itchy beard, become something you can be proud to wear on your face.Read More
Of all our ingredients beeswax is probably the most familiar to you. This magnificent stuff is made in a hive by honey bees (genus: apis). When first formed by the bees it is naturally a whitish/cream colorRead More
Now, on to something really, really exciting, butters. You would not believe how much Kerrygold I put in the beard balm. OK, that's a lie. What I'm talking about is Shea and cocoa butter.Read More
Essential oils are the butter on our bread. They are oils extracted from trees, shrubs, grasses, spices, seeds, etc. that concentrate aroma and homeopathic qualities into a concentrated oil.Read More
Over the next four days we will be pulling the veil back on our ingredients. We want you to know what we use and why we use it, so you can have confidence in our products.
Let's start with the facts:
1. You put The Bearded Savant products on your face
2. You care about what you put on your face
From this, we conclude that we better darn well care about what goes into our products or we're doing you a disservice. So, let's start with one of our most basic ingredients.Read More
