NATURAL OILS

Aloe Vera Leaf Juice
Aloe Vera contains proteolytic enzymes which repair dead skin cells. It also acts as a great conditioner and leaves your hair smooth and shiny. It promotes hair growth, prevents itching, reduces dandruff and conditions your hair.
  
Used in: Beard Oil, Beard Butter

Apricot Kernel Oil
The rich Vitamin E and K content is great for nourishing and strengthening your hair follicles from the roots and also acts as a natural moisturiser. Vitamin K works to thicken your blood cells and tighten your skin (like a natural astringent), which means that more nutrients pass into your hair follicles and ensures a stronger grip on individual hairs.
  
Used in: Beard Oil, Beard Balm, Beard Butter

Argan Oil
Argan Oil is often used as a hair treatment. It is extremely beneficial for hair and is commonly used as a conditioner.
Vitamin E is extremely beneficial for hair, and is found in Argan Oil in high quantities. Vitamin E promotes healthy hair growth as it contains antioxidants, which help boost cells and encourage them to produce healthy hair. It can also promote the growth of healthy, strong hair as opposed to thin, brittle hair.
  
Used in: Beard Oil, Beard Butter

Grapeseed Oil
Grapeseed Oil is great for hair care as it contains a lot of Vitamin E, which is necessary for hair growth, and health. The extensive proteins, minerals, and the linoleic acid it contains also offer lots of benefits for hair.
  
Used in: Beard Oil

Hemp Seed Oil
One of the benefits of Hemp Seed Oil for hair is its moisturising properties. Hemp Seed Oil will prevent water loss and inject moisture into the hair and scalp.
In addition, it is easily absorbed by the hair, so it doesn’t get sticky.
Hemp Seed Oil also helps to enhance the growth of hair, it contains Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids, which are necessary in stimulating growth.
The oil also improves blood circulation which ensures that the hair follicles are nourished enough to support hair growth.
  
Used in: Beard Oil

Jojoba Seed Oil
Jojoba Seed Oil  has a molecular structure similar to sebum (the oil that the skin naturally produces). It is composed of 98% monounsaturated fats and 2% saturated fats so it can penetrate the hair follicle and strengthen hair fibres from the inside. Jojoba Seed Oil acts as a great conditioner, adding shine, elasticity and softness to hair.

Sweet Almond Oil
The protein, fats and vitamin content of Sweet Almond Oil help to strengthen hair and keep it strong. The moisture sealing properties of Sweet Almond Oil make hair resistant to breakage and less likely to develop split ends.
  
Used in: Beard Oil

Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E Oil is extremely good at locking moisture in the shaft of the hair, providing a maximum condition, this can eliminate dryness, resulting in strong and smooth hair.
Vitamin E Oil is known as one of the finest and rich antioxidants that can help neutralise free radicals that cause damage to hair. This will help keep your hair follicles free from any type of damage while fighting breakage and split-ends.

BUTTERS/WAXES

Beeswax
Beeswax not only moisturises and smooths down hair, it also keeps moisture from getting out of the hair. Moisture and ease of styling isn't all beeswax has to offer your hair, however. Beeswax is also used to naturally stimulate hair growth.

Cocoa Butter
Cocoa Butter does wonders for the skin and also for your hair. Cocoa Butter will help keep your hair healthy and soft. Much like Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter has healing and softening properties that will make your hair healthy and shiny.
