At the Bespoke Beard Company, we have nothing to hide. In fact, we take pride in the ingredients used in all of our high quality oils; the very ingredients that make them high quality. So with that, we’d like to take the opportunity to shine some light on each of the 9 carrier oils used in every bottle of Bespoke Beard Co. beard oil.
First up, Hempseed Oil. Before you ask, yes, THAT hemp. But, don’t worry, there isn’t anything fishy going on here. While hemp cultivation in the United States has largely been prohibited until the last decade thanks to the correlation of the Cannabis (in this particular case, Cannabis sativa) plant and it’s well-known and highly controversial use as a psychoactive, the less scandalous products of the plant, namely hemp fiber and hempseed, have been imported into the US frequently and in large quantities since the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937. In fact, hemp fiber has been used in everything from rope and canvas to fine linens, tea bags, and insulation. Hempseed has a very similar story.
Hempseed is actually a bit of a misnomer. It is actually an achene, similar to a nut, and is actually quite nutritious for you, containing highly unsaturated fats, easily digestible protein, and dietary fiber. (Note: Please do not ingest your beard oil.) Hempseed oil is made, as you may have guessed, by crushing or pressing the hempseed, and no, there is no THC in the hempseed itself, so you won’t find any in the oil itself.
So what are the benefits of hempseed oil? Well, it’s great for your skin. It can actually hydrate your skin without clogging your pores, and helps to balance your skin’s own production of oil, which can aid in preventing acne. And thanks to the linoleic and oleic acids found in hempseed oil, it can soothe inflammation and prevent signs of aging. As for your hair, hempseed oil reduces how much water your hair can absorb, which in turn reduces how brittle your hair can be, reducing breakage and preventing split ends. On top of that, hempseed oil is high in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, both of which have been noted to play a major part in preventing hair loss.
So there you have it. All these benefits, and that’s just ONE of the nine different essential oils in every bottle of Bespoke Beard Company beard oil. But don’t take our word for it. Pick some up and see for yourself.
