Why is my beard so itchy? A cure for the itch required!
Why is my beard so itchy? We hear you say…constantly. Don’t worry, everyone associated with our humble little beard care company has suffered from beard itch at some point. You are not alone, and the good news is there is a cure.
Hemp oil (Cannabis Sativa) has incredible beard care benefits. Unlike sweet almond, palm and coconut oil for instance, that have slow absorption rates, hemp oil absorbs into the skin easily and quickly. Oils like sweet almond, palm and coconut oil will leave your beard feeling greasy afterwards and will leave an oily residue on the skin.
So if you suffer from beard itch, we think this hemp based beard oil is the answer.
Why is my beard so itchy? Hemp oil could be the cure for the itch!
Hemp oil actually leaves a satiny finish on the skin. Although, when it’s mixed with other carefully selected carrier oils, it’s easily absorbed into the skin. If guys use too much beard oil with carrier oils with poor absorption, it may actually block your pours. It’s very important to keep the pores free of clogging with oil to prevent blackheads and acne.
Your beard won’t be so itchy with Omega 6 and Omega 9
Omega 6 is essential for the healthy functioning of skin and can coat the outer layer. It’s amazing for dehydrated and dry skin! Omega 9 on the other hand promotes healthy inflammation responses. This is the same as the oil produced in our own skin glands! This is why we think hemp oil has every right to be in this beard oil. Who can argue with that fact?
Beard itch remedy with extra Omega 6 and Omega 9
As well as building this oil around hemp, we have also carefully sourced and included organic sacha inchi oil to super-charge this product. The sacha inchi plant is from the Peruvian Amazon jungle. It actually contains one of the highest content of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) among all vegetable oils with alpha-linolenic acid (Omega 3) reaching between 45% to 48% and Linoleic acid (Omega 6) between 32% to 37%.
Organic sacha inchi oil also contains Oleic acid (Omega 9) with an average of 9% and a high concentration of tocopherols specifically gamma and delta tocopherols. It has an ideal balance between Omega 3 and Omega 6 (1.4 to 1).
WHAT THE FUCK DOES THAT MEAN? It means the oil is fantastic for dried and damaged beard hair.
So what are the other benefits of hemp seed oil and is it good for my beard?
