The rise of the beard is in full swing and has claimed almost every man for at least a brief stint. One of the top reasons for giving up the growth and shaving the beard is due to complaints of itchiness and rough facial hair. Insert Jack Black Beard Oil. The relief you have needed comes in the form of all natural ingredients in that legendary blue bottle. Let your Pogonotrophy start here. 
Now what exactly is Beard OilBeard Oil is specially formulated from 100% pure essential oils that condition your facial hair and skin.  The history of beard oils dates all the way back to the Roman Empire when some Romans would actually rub olive oil on their faces in belief that it would encourage faster, thicker beard growth. Native Americans also took part in this ritual by obtaining natural oils from almonds, castor, and grape seed to keep their crumb catchers moisturized and radiant in the rough climates. 
To understand why Beard Oil is important you must first understand your beard. Your facial hair draws out moisture from your skin into the follicle that then rapidly dries out from the external environment – especially if you live in cold or dry climates. Your face, like other parts of your body, grows Androgenic hair. This hair is much thicker and coarser than that on your head. Using Beard Oil will provide long-lasting hydration to hair and skin since the oil oxidizes and won’t evaporate like a water-based product will. 
Applying Beard Oil serves both functional and aesthetic purposes, from keeping the beard and skin healthy to aroma and style: 
Beard Health - One of Beard Oil’s key ingredients is Plum Oil. It softens brittle and dry facial hair follicles for added control and a healthy shine. It also helps make your whiskers tangle-free, more manageable, and soft to the touch for that special someone. Another one of these beneficial ingredients is Marula Oil. This oil is rich in fatty acids to offer fast-absorbing hydration. This hydration is important to keep your beard hair healthy throughout its growth; it also benefits your under-beard (a.k.a. the skin beneath) which often goes uncared for. Keeping the skin healthy and hydrated will help to inhibit the dreaded beard flakes or facial hair dryness. 
Skin Health - Found in the Kalahari region of Africa is the Kalahari Melon Oil. This oil is combined with Vitamin E, Brown Algae, and carrot Extract – this powerhouse combination delivers powerful antioxidants that help protect skin against the damaging effects of free radicals and environmental pollutants. These oils also provide strong moisturizing and conditioning benefits for the skin beneath the mane. 
Aroma - We’ve heard from many men who want their chin curtain to be healthy and clean but not be drowned in an overpowering aroma. After deodorant, facial moisturizer (for neck and cheeks), hair care products, cologne, and any body lotion or other grooming products that might have an aroma, the last thing you want is a strong smell living directly beneath your nose. Jack Black Beard Oil has a fresh, light scent that smells clean and fresh.
APPLICATION: To add Beard Oil to your morning skincare routine, apply it after you shower and wash your face so your hair follicles and pores are open and can absorb the oils. Simply pump 2-3 drops of Beard Oil into your palm. Rub hands together and massage upward into facial hair, making contact with the skin underneath. To finish, groom beard downward with fingers or brush and style as usual. Reapply as needed.
