Beard Balm - when you are beginning the Beard man’s journey as well as when you have the beard that you hope to acheive, it should be for the purpose of controlling that look. It allows for the styling of those errant whiskers. The four essential ingredients are Beeswax, the Butter, the Carrier Oils and the Essential Oils.
Beeswax – Its foremost feature is that it will give the beard hold and shape. Without it you can’t have Beard Balm. It is used both in Beard Balm and Moustache Wax.
