How Beard Soap Works
Making a good natural beard soap is difficult as you need to balance cleansing power and conditioning action.
Coconut oil makes a great hand and body soap but it can leave hair dry and brittle as its high cleanings power strips away natural oils and moisturizers found on hair follicles.
That’s especially problematic for beards, as washing your beard too often or using a harsh soap can strip away nourishing oils and butters and counteract all the hard work your beard balm and beard oil is doing.
The good news? With the right soap making experience and smarts, it’s possible to make a soap like Burly that balances all of the above.
While some men use Burly daily on their beards, we recommend that you start by using it it every 2-3 days.
Beards and hair type can be very different so start slow and see how your beard reacts.
If used with a soap dish, a single bar of Burly can last for several months.
Burly Beard Soap ingredients:
Olive oil, spring water, canola oil, sodium hydroxide, castor oil, shea butter, argan oil, cocoa butter, patchouli oil, and cedarwood oil.
