All of our ingredients are sourced from companies we trust and have worked with for years. We are, what you could call Ingredient snobs. It’s a large part of the reason why our products are so good. Every single ingredient in all of our products has a specific job. We don't dilute our products with cheap "filler" oils (a common practice to increase yield while lowering overall cost – often which is not passed along to you, the consumer!) We don’t use synthetic fragrances, ever. And any preservatives we use (only in our water based formulations) are all natural and have been professionally challenge tested for effectiveness.
We use high quality, unrefined (when possible) carrier oils such a Argan, Hazelnut, Hemp, Jojoba, Abyssinian, Camellia, and Plum. All of which are excellent at hydrating, and protecting skin and hair from damage.
Butters & Waxes:
Our beeswax is harvested less than hour away from our front door by our friends at Fallentimber Meadery (they make the best Mead you’ve ever had the pleasure of sippin’ on).
Our Shea butter is certified Fair Trade from the Tapko Widow's Cooperative in Ghana, where women are paid a fair and direct wage. The butter is hand processed and uses no chemicals or additives. The production of Shea Butter has transformed the economic health of the village, helping to fund school fee's, health care and better nutrition.
Essential oils & absolutes:
We have a background with formal training in Aromatherapy and a long history with essential oil use. We only use the highest quality essential oils and absolutes in our products. We are knowledgeable about safe essential oil dilutions and contraindications.
Our packaging is just as important as the products it holds here at Mammoth Beard Co. Our beard oil comes in glass amber bottles in order to keep light out of the product, which can turn oils rancid quickly. We also choose to use treatment pumps instead of the popular glass droppers so that you don't have to worry about spilling an open bottle of oil. The treatment pump also ensures that the oil meets as little oxygen as a possible which extends the shelf life.
