Choosing the Right Beard Balm for your Beard

Choosing the Right Beard Balm for your Beard

In order to grow your beard and keep it healthy, a quality beard balm is one of the best tools that you can use. If you're looking for the best tips on how to choose the best natural beard balm, this blog post is for you. So, let's delve right into the important steps to take to find the right beard balm. 

For a beard balm to really be up there among the very best, there are three key attributes to it's performance  which are – 

  • Moisturize 
  • Seal 
  • Style  

We will consider each of these factors and how they can help you select the right beard balm for your beard.  

MOISTURIZE  You will find many moisturizing oils that promise to provide nourishment to your beard. In selecting a beard balm, ensure that the balm you choose has non-comedogenic oils. This enhances beard moisturizing without getting your sweat pores clogged. Here are some oils that are considered non-comedogenic to help moisturize your beard sufficiently –


Grapeseed –  Very affordable, it can help to moisturize and maintain your beard effectively. The only downside that comes with grape seed is that its shelf life is significantly short. 

Jojoba  Anyway, Jojoba is not really an oil. In contrast with other oils, there are no triglycerides in jojoba. So, it has a longer shelf life, it's non-allergenic, as well as, non-comedogenic. In jojoba, you will find essential nutrients like vitamins and minerals which help to grow your beard, keep it soft, conditioned and prevent it from breaking or having split ends.   

Argan  Mostly called liquid gold by a lot of hair professionals, it easily penetrates your pores and enhances elasticity. Also, it promotes the growth of your beard. It has natural antioxidants, as well as, vitamin E which both contribute to the repair of cellular membranes that get damaged. 

If you wish to find the best natural beard balm, ensure that, at least, one of these above-mentioned moisturizers is included in it.   

SEAL  The similarity of beard balm to lotion or oils lies in the fact that it gets moisture sealed in. Without good moisturizers such as jojoba, the only thing that will be set in by your beard balm is dryness. Apart from moisturizing power, you need to ensure that your beard balm can seal moisture in. Highly recommended beard balm sealing ingredients to lock moisture in are – 

Shea Butter  Derived from the Shea nut tree of African origins, Shea butter is arguably the best beard sealant. The best natural Canadian beard balms make use of shea butter. In contrast with petroleum jelly, it never clogs your facial pores and washing it out is quite easy whenever you want to.   

Beeswax  This natural wax is manufactured by honey bees. Beeswax is all natural, as well as, non-comedogenic. This means that your face pores will not get clogged and facial hair growth will be stimulated. Its hold is stronger than that of shea butter making it a very good sealant for the prevention of moisture escape. 

So when choosing your beard balm, look out for brands that come with sealants such as beeswax or shea butter. 


STYLE  Another factor to consider when trying to find the best natural Canadian beard balm is if it gives you a good hold when shaping. In order to smooth stray hairs, create natural curls, and more, you need to shape and style your beard. Shea butter helps your follicles look thick too. 

Beard balms that combine both shea and beeswax provide a good hold.
