Beard oils have rapidly increased in popularity, but what about beard growth oils?
I mean oils and facial hair growth creams specifically promoted as products that make your beard grow faster and stimulate new growth.
What are the real facts behind these beard growth formulas? Their ingredients? And do they even work?
Beard Growing Oils, Do they Work?
Checking the market, there seems to be three prominent products that all promise their beard oil or cream to stimulate facial hair growth, and they are;
The unfortunate fact is that after checking and reviewing the ingredients on all of them, and checking for research and anecdotal evidence, I can guarantee you that none of them will work in the way as advertised.
Beard Farmer’s Growther Oil® for example, claims to grow your beard 6x faster. Yes that’s not a typo, they actually are arrogant enough to claim that.
When looking at the ingredients (which they make really hard to access), we can see that their product is mainly olive oil, with some essential oils thrown in there that do absolutely nothing for facial hair growth.
Oh did I mention that they are also perfectly OK selling you mostly olive oil at the price of $24 per 2oz. This is a scam. Plain and simple. Don’t believe the Amazon reviews, don’t waste your money.
Dollar Beard Club Grow Oil® is really not much better. Although they have a strong brand with quality beard oils, awesome advertisements, and great mission (no shaving), their “Grow Oil” isn’t really going to grow your beard any faster.
Their monthly program includes growth oil at $8 per 1oz, which is really a decent deal considering that the oil goes just well as a normal beard oil, but let me be clear by saying that it doesn’t do anything significant in stimulating beard growth.
Even though their Grow oil contains castor oil (which has been shown to slightly stimulate beard growth), these effects are likely reversed by another ingredient; rice bran oil, which blocks the most potent beard growth hormone (DHT).
Beardilizer Beard Growth Cream® won’t be getting any good reviews from me. Even before I checked their ingredients I was pretty sure they were out and ready to make another low quality product just as their beardilizer beard vitamin is…
…And I was correct. Their cream is basically water, olive oil, and coconut oil. Along with possible DHT blocking oils (that actually reduce beard growth) such as lauric acid and sunflower oil. Rest of the ingredients are either preserving chemicals and/or scents.
And they are glad to ask you to pay $23 for 4oz of this cream that for certain does not stimulate any new growth of beard.
The main beard growth oils on the market are ineffective and probably sold simply because there is demand for such products.
Beard growth oils do not work, and most often will be a form of rip-off where something like olive oil is sold you with huge price tag and a claim of boosting beard growth by 6x.
If you’re looking for a way to actually stimulate new growth of facial hair and are tired of scamming companies, I can tell you three things that will work to force your follicles produce new facial hair…
- Minoxidil, a proven pharmaceutical that delivers more nutrients and hormones (testosterone and DHT) to the follicles, triggering growth.
- Diet and supplementation protocol that ensures you a balanced intake of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) to support and maximize natural growth potential.
- Castor oil, which contains ricinoleic acid that slightly stimulates the production of prostaglanding E2 on the follicles and can thicken the growth.
- Microneedling and other beard hacks that are actually backed by science, to finally help you get rid of that patchy thin beard and turn it into thick mane.
