How my wife uses it—Using our product the wrong way for the right reason

Peter Polito

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.

Why do I need a Bearded Savant wooden beard comb?

Why a Bearded Savant Comb?

Quality. Quality. Quality. Our combs are designed and constructed by a master comb maker with over three decades of experience using handmade tools, curated wood selection, with maximum craftsmanship. The grain of the handle and teeth are normal to each other, which puts the grain in the same direction to the maximum stress, making them much stronger (there are a lot of beard combs laser etched out of a single piece of wood, which cannot compete on strength). The shape of the comb makes it easy and comfortable to use. There are no finishes of any type. Looking at the image it looks like there is a varnish or lacquer, but this is merely the result of quality sanding work. At the end of the day, our combs are extremely well made, with high-quality materials, designed for maximum strength, comfort and ease of use, with no coatings or paints. Quality. Quality. Quality.

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.
