For a complete list of all my products including beard combs, brushes t-shirts, and stickers, please visit our website www.irishbeardbalm.com Irish beard balm blends coconut oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, hemp oil and beeswax. The ingredients in Irish beard balm are all-natural and certified organic. The balms contain absolutely no chemicals or artificial preservatives. To view my organic certificates please go to https://www.irishbeardbalm.com/products.html Unlike most other beard balms on the market, Irish beard balm’s recipe doesn’t include cocoa, shea or other butters that are used to thicken balms. In testing, I found that butters built up in my beard over time, making it heavy. After extensive research and development, I discovered a way to make balms that didn’t use butters and left my beard feeling light. All Irish beard balms use the same base ingredients. The only difference between the variety of options is the essential oil used to create each of the fragrances. With this 1/2 ounce tin, I created something that not many other beard balm companies are willing to do. Sell a small sample size so the consumer doesn't have to order a large tin of product to find out whether he likes it or not. It is not very cost effective on my end but at the end of the day, it's the beard that matters. The Whiskey Barrel balm fragrance is a strong one. Unlike other Irish beard balms that use typical essential oil, Whiskey Barrel uses a very potent essential oil paste. The added benefit of the paste is that its scent lasts longer into the day than traditional essential oils. This balm truly smells like the inside of a spent whiskey barrel. For first-time Irish beard balm orders, I’d recommend first trying one of my other fragrances because of the strength of this balm. Remember as with any new product, test on a small insensitive part of your body to gauge for any adverse reactions.
