Best Base Oils For Your Custom Beard Oil

Posted on

Beard oils can not only keep your beard itself smooth and healthy; they are also good for keeping the skin beneath your beard smooth and supple. Every guy likes a somewhat different beard oil. Some like their beard oil thick and creamy, while others prefer a thinner, lighter oil. If you have a custom beard oil made, you will have plenty of control over its consistency and ingredients.

The first step in designing a custom beard oil is usually picking your base oil — the oil that will make up the majority of the formula. Here are some of the top options to consider.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil is a liquid at room temperature. It has a light, silky texture and is easily absorbed into the skin. People like to say that jojoba oil is the closest you can come to your skin's own, natural oils. It has a light scent, and it helps nourish the skin to promote hair growth. If you've been having trouble growing your beard or you want it to grow faster, jojoba oil is a good base oil for your custom beard oil.

Coconut Oil

If your beard and the skin around it are really dry, then you may want a custom beard oil that is thicker and creamier. Coconut oil is the base you want in this case. It's solid at room temperature, so when blended with other oils, it takes on a creamy, almost lotion-like texture. It's heavier than the other base oils on this list, so it may be too intensive for someone with normal or slightly oily skin. But for someone with a dry beard, coconut oil can be a great choice.

Avocado Oil

Avocado oil is another lighter, liquid oil option, although it is not quite as light as jojoba oil. It is a good, middle-of-the-road base oil for someone who has some beard dryness now and then but is not overly concerned about flaky skin or intense dryness. Avocado oil is very nourishing. It will encourage healthy hair growth and healthy skin. Since it is really high in antioxidants, it may even help prevent blemishes and wrinkles over time.

Consider the three base oils above, and decide which one would be best for your custom beard oil. Once you've made that decision, your next step will be choosing other essential oils and additives to give the beard oil more custom properties.
