Whether you're a beard aficionado or an average joe with a killer beard, comprehensive beard care is a must! This Movember, we're focusing on men's health and beard care.
Movember is a month-long event where men grow moustaches in November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide.
Beards are in fashion. They're also regularly in the sun, gym and work; ultimately they are in need of care. These vegan and cruelty-free products are sure to give your beard the care that it deserves.
Beard Shampoo and Conditioner
The first component of beard care is a beard shampoo. After all, it helps you to clean off all that dirt. You CANNOT use your head shampoo for your beard! Your beard hair is thicker than regular hair and the head shampoo will dry out your skin and strip your beard of natural oils.
A beard shampoo or beard wash will nourish your beard with oils and keep it hydrated. These products also have anti-inflammatory ingredients. Check out some of the vegan, cruelty-free beard products: Lush’s beard wash Kalamazoo uses pineapple juice to keep you clean while jojoba oil, almond oil, and cupuaçu butter help to keep your `stache tame. The Brighton Beard Company products are perfect for men with any skin type(oily, dry, normal, combination, and even sensitive). All these products use natural ingredients to give you that moisturized and smooth beard.

Just like how you use both shampoo and conditioner for your head, you need to follow the same ritual for your beard too. Beard conditioner nourishes your beard and your skin beneath it. It prevents the beard from getting too wirey and your facial skin from getting too flaky! Check out Jack Black conditioner, Bulldog beard care, Scotch Porter.

Beard Balm and Beard Oil
Let's understand the difference between beard oil and beard balm. Beard balm consists of a primary base of beeswax, cocoa butter, or shea butter; this primary base makes it into a creamy substance that melts when you rub it into your hands. Beard oil is made of natural oils and essential oils.
Essentially both perform the same function. Both are meant to condition your hair and moisturize your skin underneath. But balms provide conditioning for your beard while also providing hold. If you like the natural flow of your beard then opt for oil! In any case, it is essential to pick at least one of these products for your daily grooming routine.

For vegans, be careful while choosing beard balms as most contain beeswax, an ingredient extracted from the honeycombs of bees. Look for more natural, plant-based ingredients like shea butter or cocoa butter in your balm.
