What oils help optimal beard growth?

There are plenty of options when it comes to picking out a beard oil - but what ingredients make a beard oil great?

Beard oils are one of the best products on the market for anyone looking to maintain a thick and luscious beard. However, when you are comparing beard oils, you need to ensure you look for a product with high-quality ingredients. Let’s take a look at what ingredients can help with beard styling and growth so you can look out for them in the future.


The main ingredient within your beard oil will be a carrier oil. There are many different options on the market, with products often using argan, jojoba, coconut, grape seed, or sweet almond oil. All of these have their own unique benefits, which can help to groom your beard to look its best at all times.


Jojoba oil is another skin-friendly ingredient that is packed with vitamin E. It keeps your beard soft and healthy and is quick to absorb into the skin. It offers many of the same benefits as argan oil and has a low odour profile when compared to other popular carrier oils. It’s sometimes combined with argan oil for the perfect beard oil product, and when these two oils are put on your beard daily, you’ll notice a huge difference in the quality of your beard.

Camellia oil is also commonly known as tea seed oil, as it is the essential oil from the seeds of the tea plant. While the leaves of the tea plant are commonly dried to produce tea, the seeds can also undergo a cold-pressing or solvent extraction process to extract the concentrated oil. Thus, camellia oil maye benefit from many of the same antioxidant compounds as tea, but also has an extremely high level of unsaturated fats, as well as other minerals and nutrients. This oil may be widely used in Asia but has increased in availability around the rest of the world.


Castor oil helps to promote faster hair growth as hairs become more nourished. Paired with rosehip oil, castor oil provides maximum benefits when it comes to healthy beard growth.

Since castor oil contains anti-inflammatory properties, it can help to improve hair strength whilst cleansing pores. Clear pores help to increase follicle density, which helps to give a fuller beard look.


Grapeseed oil penetrates your skin quickly and doesn’t leave your skin feeling oily. Since grapeseed oil doesn’t clog pores, it’s ideal for all skin types, including oily skin that needs moisturizing.

Grapeseed oil may improve the condition of your hair and scalp. If you have Beard-druff, which is often caused by a dry scalp, applying emollient grapeseed oil to your beard can help loosen dead skin and restore moisture.



You’ll find that many beard oils have a fragrance associated with them, but this is something you need to be very careful about. Due to the close proximity of the beard to your nose, it’s always nice to have a light scent you can smell throughout the day. You might prefer to opt for an unscented product, meaning you gain all of the benefits of the beard oil without it distracting you throughout your day. 

By looking out for a beard oil made from these ingredients, you can find a product that will look after both your beard and the skin underneath it. We encourage you always to check the ingredients of any skincare product carefully to avoid irritation.
