About Our Oils
When selecting or crafting a premium beard oil blend you have to allow yourself to ignore the scents. Anyone can have an amazing smelling beard oil, the scent is just a combination of the proper essential oils. While the is smell amazing and that is important because you apply the oil just below your nose, this is not what makes up a superior beard oil.
A beard oil can be broken down into 2 major categories: Carrier Oils and Essential Oils for scent. The thing that most people do not realize or know is the carrier oils make up the vast majority of what is in your bottle and contain the ingredients that make the difference. There are dozens of carrier oils out there so the combinations are endless, but I can tell you based on experience – not all blends are created equal. What I have experienced and I am sure some of you have as well, a particular beard oil smells amazing but it leaves you feeling greasy, or it fades too quickly or it makes you shiny without noticing any benefits to your skin health. This is all due to the carrier oil blend.
RMBC Beard Oils are specifically crafted with 9 premium carrier oils, more than your average "run of the mill" beard oil. Don’t believe me, check the label of your current beard oil. This blend is perfectly formulated to keep your skin nourished with all the vitamins and nutrients you need to grow strong, healthy beard without leaving you greasy or flaky with beard-druff.
Check out our carrier oils below and all the benefits that make up our premium RMBC Beard Oils:
Sweet Almond Oil
Highly rich in Vitamin E and an excellent natural antioxidant, sweet almond oil is extracted from the dried fruit of the almond tree. Its high vitamin E content makes it an optimal choice for nourishing the skin, regenerating new skin cells and keeping in moisture, making it a great choice for those who have dry skin. Its natural antioxidant properties help protect from the damaging effects of the sun, and its high concentrations of both oleic and linoleic acids help to relieve inflammation and soothe irritated skin. Being non-greasy and hypoallergenic, it makes an excellent facial oil and its rich Vitamin E content can actually help repair damage in the collagen layer of the skin, making facial skin smooth and supple and reducing wrinkles. Sweet almond oil makes our list for one of the top oils of choice for nourishing the skin and hair.
Apricot Kernel Oil
Obtained from the kernels or seeds of apricots, apricot kernel oil is a gentle, light oil with a slightly nutty aroma, and has properties and applications similar to sweet almond oil. Usually used as a facial oil, it makes the skin soft and supple and does not leave any greasy residue behind. The high antioxidant content in apricot kernel oil makes it great for protecting the skin from free radicals. The non-greasy properties of the oil make it a good oil to use for oily facial skin, as well as dry, irritated or sensitive skin.
The fruit of the avocado tree is almost one-third oil and is one of the thickest, most luxurious oils on our list! Avocado oil is also a good oil to use for anti-aging as it contains palmitoleic acid, a type of fatty acid that is found naturally in human fatty tissues just under the skin. Since avocado oil mimics this fat, the skin absorbs it in, especially providing excellent nourishment for older, mature skin that has thinned with age. Avocado oil contains high concentrations of oleic and linoleic fatty acids making it a potent anti-inflammatory and along with other naturally present nutrients and antioxidants as well as vitamins A, D & E, this oil is ideal for irritable skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
Best known for its anti-aging properties and promoting hair growth and repairing hair damage and split ends, if you haven't heard of or used argan oil, you're missing out on an oil that is loaded with rich, nourishing properties and healing benefits! No wonder top-notch cosmetic companies are using it in their high-end formulations. Argan oil is extracted from the fruit of the Moroccan argan tree (Argania Spinosa). Rich in antioxidants, Vitamin A and E, and oleic and linoleic fatty acids, argan oil is especially beneficial for healing inflammation and damage caused by UV rays of the sun, reducing the appearance of stretch marks and scars and promoting healthy cuticles and nails. It is one of the best oils to use for regenerating skin cells, making it an excellent choice for anti-aging salves and lotions.
Jojoba oil is famous for being the oil that is closest to mimicking the natural oil secretions of human skin! This makes it an excellent moisturizer for using on areas like the face and neck that may otherwise look oily with other oils. The oil is extracted from the seeds of the jojoba tree and has a light nutty aroma. With the longest chain of essential fatty acids than any other oil and its ability to resist oxidation, jojoba oil holds a long shelf-life. Its high rate of absorption makes it one of the top oils on our list.
Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E needs no introduction, most of us have it in our multivitamins or additional Vitamin E in a separate capsule. Vitamin E oil is distinct from vitamin E supplements because it is applied directly to the skin. Vitamin E oil is an ingredient in many skincare products, especially those with anti-aging benefits.
Just like the name suggests, grapeseed oil is extracted from the seeds of grapes. Grape seeds are loaded with antioxidants and other beneficial nutrients, making grapeseed oil high in proteins, minerals, vitamin E and linoleic acid (a natural anti-inflammatory). Grapeseed oil does not make skin greasy so it is widely used in many manufactured cosmetics and you can find it in sunscreens, creams, lotions and other cosmetic products. It also has antiseptic properties and is a mild astringent, making it a good oil for acne-prone skin or oily skin. Being lighter than coconut oil, for example, grapeseed oil moisturizes and nourishes hair without making it greasy and works well to combat bread-druff.
Pumpkin Seed Oil has good moisturizing and lubricating properties and can be used on all skin types as it hydrates the skin and is reputed to reduce visible signs of aging. Due to its high vitamin and mineral content Pumpkin Seed Oil is considered extremely nourishing and can be added to face creams, lotions, bath oils, massage oils, soaps to improve the appearance of the skin.
Obtained from the Cannabis Sativa plant, hemp seed oil has suffered a bad rep, but in actuality, it provides some pretty amazing health benefits. With high concentrations of both linoleic and alpha-linolenic acids, hemp seed oil is a brilliant anti-inflammatory and has valuable antioxidant properties which help with skin cell regeneration and preventing premature aging. Being non-greasy it is great to use on oily skin.
