You asked us for a beard oil set formed of our top 3 selling beard oils from our legacy range (no longer sold as single items). We would like to introduce you to The Ginger Basturd, The Basturd AB Whatmore and The Basturd Midge beard oils.
These beard oils can be used all year round, however, much sense can be made of using specific blends during the spring, summer and winter seasons. Let us explain this beard oil set in a little detail:
- Beard Oil Set Bottle 1: The Ginger Basturd Beard Oil (Winter)
We actually designed this beard oil with the Scottish harsh winters in mind. We chose to pack it with nutrient-rich carrot (root) oil. It features our main carrier oil grapeseed, along with passion-flower, natural vitamin E and of course, carrot oil. Carrots are rich in nutrients such as vitamins A, C, and E, beta-carotene, and a multitude of other antioxidants. Vitamins A and E in particular— in addition to beta-carotene — have wonderful skin conditioning properties. If you apply a beard oil daily, and it’s packed with a high amount of nutrients, you actually increase the number of antioxidants in your body and on your skin.
As a direct result, you build healthier beard hair that will last the winter months in style.
Scent: The spicy and fruity scent comes from our blend of clementine, mandarin orange, sweet orange and black pepper essential oils.
- Beard Oil Set Bottle 2: The Basturd AB Whatmore (Spring)
We actually designed this oil in collaboration with a customer who is in the Royal Navy, hence the AB in the product name, it’s his rank (with Whatmore being his surname). We knew the UK spring season can have just as much sunny days as windy and wet ones. So we chose to pack it with Andiroba oil. It features our key carrier oil grapeseed, along with our blend of calendula, vitamin-e and of course, andiroba. Andiroba oil penetrates the skin quickly, acting as an excellent emollient oil. It’s naturally high in limonoids and triterpenes which are anti-inflammatories (great for sensitive skin), which is why andiroba is often found in formulations for muscular aches and pains and products intended to reduce swelling.
As a direct result, this oil will help reduce beard dandruff and strengthen your beard hair that will last the spring months in style.
Scent: The musky and citrusy scent comes from our blend of lime, patchouli, bay leaf, cypress and cedarwood essential oils.
- Beard Oil Set Bottle 3: The Basturd Midge (Summer)
This is a general summer oil aimed at keeping the beard protected from the sun, leaving it with an impeccable shine along with soothing the skin, too. Protecting the beard from drying out, relieving you of the itchiness and bristliness hot days can bring was a tough task. So we chose to pack this oil with andiroba as noted above, along with sea buckthorn berry oil. It features our main carrier oil grapeseed, along with jojoba, peach kernel, andiroba and of course, sea buckthorn berry oil. Due to its unique composition of fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, Sea Buckthorn Berry oil works wonders for improving skin health. For people with very dry skin or for those who battle with dandruff on a daily basis, Sea Buckthorn Berry oil can help to tame the flakes by providing deep moisture and improving the strength of skin on a cellular level.
As a direct result, this beard oil will reduce beard itchiness and bristliness while helping to reduce inflammation and redness of the skin. It will also help keep those pesky midges at bay!
Scent: The refreshing midge bashing scent comes from our blend of lavender, citronella, lemongrass and bog myrtle essential oils.
