Some companies would like you to believe that making a product such as our Boss beard oil is an arcane, complicated art — and charge you accordingly — but that’s not how we do things around here.
A good beard oil recipe is more science than anything else, along with a healthy dose of persistence to keep trying different combinations until you get it right.
Our experience with soap making definitely helped when it came to perfecting Boss. Many of the specialty conditioning oils used in making shampoo soap bars also make great beard oil ingredients.
It is also very important to know the nature of each oil, especially as far as picking the right oils — and the right concentration of each — to maximize the conditioning linoleic and oleic acids in your beard oil.
Last but not least, knowing something about scents and top, middle, and base notes also helps when it comes to setting your beard oil recipe apart.
Our Boss Beard Oil Recipe
We keep things simple with Boss, using just four natural oils as well as a mix of essential oils and fragrances oils for scent.
Almond oil is an excellent skin moisturizer and is very high in oleic fatty acids, which act as a natural hair conditioner.
Jojoba oil is rich in oleic acid and it’s thicker, waxy nature gives Boss some heft and acts as a natural emollient for skin.
Evening primrose rose is one of the richest sources of linoleic fatty acids on the planet — and also one of the most expensive oils on the market.
Our four different scents of Boss beard oil — Original, Cedar & Orange, Ginger Patchouli, and Dark Fired — each use a blend of fragrance oils and essential oils such as cedarwood, ginger, orange, vetiver, clove, and patchouli.
We also make our Brawn beard balm in the same scents, if you’d like to use both a beard balm and a beard oil in the same scent.
