BEESWAX (Cera alba)
Beeswax is a natural substance secreted by the honey bee. While it does have some great benefits when used in hair and skin products, its primary function in our balms is to help with styling. Beeswax alone is very stiff but it begins to soften and become pliable when heated. We’ve used the perfect ratio of beeswax and butter to help tame your beard’s toughest sections while maintaining that carefree natural appearance.
BAOBAB OIL (Adansonia digitata seed oil)
Baobab Oil originates from the seeds of the Adansonia digitata tree, nicknamed the “Tree of Life” for it’s 1000 year lifespan. Baobab Oil is extremely non-siccative which means it does not dry out when in contact with the air. This unique quality provides a long shelf life and a stable molecular structure. African Baobab Oil is intensely nourishing for both hair and skin and was specifically chosen for its rare fatty acid profile. With equal parts of palmitic, oleic, and linoleic acid, Baobab Oil improves skin elasticity, aids in protecting the moisture barrier and helps soothe minor irritations.

Sourced in Canada from the seeds of the Limnanthes alba plant, Meadowfoam Seed Oil is suitable for all skin and hair types. 97% of the fatty acids present in Meadowfoam Oil are made up of long chain 20 plus carbon atoms. These fatty acids will mend split ends, lock in moisture and offer protection against heat. This oil also absorbs deep into the skin while helping to unclog pores. The molecular stability of Meadowfoam Seed Oil makes it resistant to oxidation, providing a long shelf life and additional support to all other ingredients it’s combined with.
ARGAN OIL (Argania spinosa kernel oil)
Argan Oil is produced from the arid valleys of the Mediterranean. Argania spinosa trees have deep roots and small leaves which allows them to withstand strong dry winds with little to no rainfall.

This oil will reduce the signs of aging and improve the appearance of your skin and hair with every application.
