The key ingredients in our Peppermint Pine Beard Wash & Shampoo Bars include:
Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI) is a naturally derived surfactant made from coconut oil. It is safe and non-toxic and is one of the mildest cleansers available. It is frequently found in baby products because it is extremely gentle on sensitive, delicate skin and hair. SCI acts as a foaming and cleansing ingredient, and leaves your beard feeling soft and silky.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA), not to be confused with Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), is derived from coconut and palm oil and is safe, skin friendly cleanser that provides a high quality lather which gently and effectively removes surface oil, dirt and bacteria, without stripping or drying out your beard.
BTMS-25 (Behentrimonium Methosulfate and Cetearyl Alcohol) is a plant based emulsifier and conditioning agent. It is derived from rapeseed and coconut oils.
Cetyl Alcohol is made up of fatty acids derived from coconut oil and provides softening and hydrating properties to your beard and acts as a thickener.
Panthenol (Provitamin B5) protects your beard from environmental damage by locking in moisture and improving its strength and structure. It also adds volume, shine, and luster.
Vegetable Glycerin is derived from plant oils (like Shea Butter or Coconut Oil). Glycerin is a humectant, meaning it can actually pull in moisture from the air, keeping your beard hydrated and healthy.
Citric Acid is derived from lemons. In addition to naturally lowering the pH in shampoos and conditioners, it also helps remove buildup from your beard and adds shine. The esters formed from Citric Acid create a thin protective coating over the surface of your beard which prevents the loss of moisture from the strands making it look glossy and hydrated.
Aloe Vera Powder has many active ingredients and minerals that can help strengthen your beard, including fatty and amino acids and is rich in vitamins A, B12, C, and E. These play a part in creating healthy beard follicles. Aloe vera has enzymes that break down fats and strip your beard of extra oil. It also helps treat dermatitis by eliminating dandruff and reducing itchiness.
Hibiscus Flower Powder is rich in amino acids which aid in the production of keratin and stimulate beard growth, thicken your beard and add volume. Traditionally, Hibiscus was used as a natural dye to mask grey hair. The antioxidants and vitamins present in Hibiscus not only increase shine and luster, but they help in producing melanin, the naturally occurring pigment that gives your beard its natural color and prevents greying.
Horsetail Extract is derived from the Horsetail plant, a member of the fern family. Horsetail is known to improve blood circulation and stimulate your beard follicles. The silica in horsetail has been shown to encourage beard growth, aid in collagen production, and improve the overall look and feel of your beard.
Nettle Leaf Powder is high in antioxidants, vitamins A, C, and K and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and phosphorous. Its leaves are rich in silica and sulphur, and they have anti-inflammatory properties. Nettle improves the shine and appearance of your beard and promote new growth.
Our Peppermint Pine Beard Wash & Shampoo Bars are a surfactant based (non-soap) beard wash and shampoo that are pH balanced and great for regular use. They are designed for all types of beards and are a gentle, all-natural, environmentally-friendly alternative to chemical-laden liquid beard wash or beard soaps with a high pH. These solid bars contain a blend of plant based surfactants, conditioners, and moisturizers, vegetable oils, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, botanical extracts, and essential oils. These ingredients will gently cleanse your beard, repair and strengthen it, promote new growth, enhance body, seal in moisture, and make your beard feel soft, silky, and manageable.
Additionally, the antibacterial and antifungal properties of aloe vera and nettle leaf help soothe dry itchy skin, prevent dandruff, and get rid of excess oil and buildup, without stripping your beard of its natural sebum. Hibiscus and horsetail gently cleanse and add shine, increase blood circulation, and help detangle curly hair. They're also made with a unique combination of evergreen and menthol essential oils to create a deep woodsy aroma, with cool mint undertones. Each bar comes in a round metal tin with a lid that is perfect for people on the go. Put one in your bathroom, suitcase, or gym bag.
