A GUIDE TO BEARD OIL FOR SENSITIVE AND ACNE-PRONE SKIN



We currently have 6 different beard oil scents. How do you pick one that’s right for you, especially if you have troubled skin?

While the basis of all our beard oils is the same (safflower seed oil, argan oil, vitamin E, and grape seed oil), each beard oil is further tweaked with a specific purpose in mind, whether that’s capturing a scent or targeting a skin and facial hair concern.

For those of you with acne or sensitive skin, we recommend the following beard oils:

Zeus Unscented Beard Oil




Best for: Sensitive skin, reactive skin, and environmentally stressed skin

When you have sensitive or reactive skin, fragrance can be an irritant. That’s why we formulated a beard oil with no fragrance whatsoever. Zeus Unscented Beard Oil only has 4 ingredients; the fewer the ingredients, the less likely you’re going to have an adverse reaction.

Safflower seed oil repairs beard hair and the skin underneath, hydrating while creating a barrier that prevents water loss. Argan oil treats razor bumps while adding a touch of shine and hold.

For all the factors conspiring against your beard and skin, we've included grape seed oil. It's an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant powerhouse that protects your beard from environmental/lifestyle stressors, i.e.: living in the city, frequent business trips, a hangover.

And grape seed oil’s astringent properties mean it’s great for acne-prone skin, absorbing excess oil and tightening the pores.

Zeus Tea Tree Beard Oil




Best for: Acne-prone skin, acne-scarred skin, and troubled skin

In addition to our four-ingredient base of oils mentioned above, Zeus Tea Tree Beard Oil includes tea tree oil, an essential oil that’s been used for thousands of years to heal all kinds of skin conditions.

Tea tree oil has antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and antiseptic properties – in other words, it’s one of nature’s most potent tools for treating and healing acne. Tea tree oil actually regulates sebum (oil) production, preventing oil slicks. It’s able to penetrate deeply into your skin, unclogging pores while disinfecting them. Any lingering whiteheads or blackheads? Tea tree oil will dry them out and reduce inflammation.

If you’re done with acne but still have old acne scars lying around, tea tree oil can help with that, too. Daily application of tea tree oil may reduce the appearance of scars over time.

Guy with eczema or psoriasis will benefit from tea tree oil’s anti-inflammatory and antiseptic nature. Tea tree oil soothes itch, relieves burning, and heals skin.

As a bonus, tea tree oil has aromatherapy benefits: its crisp, uplifting scent will revitalize you for the day ahead.
