1. What are the benefits of beard oil?
It helps in moisturizing and nourishing, not only the hair but the skin underneath the beard. When you have a beard, the sebaceous glands - which produce sebum, the skin's natural oil - can only produce a finite amount of sebum. That's where beard oil comes in. It's used to cover the areas that sebum cannot, which helps to prevent itchy and dry beards and skin.
2. What is the difference between beard oil and beard balm?
They both offer the same health benefits, but beard balm offers a higher level of hold. Ingredients wise, balms also have beeswax and butter which offer either more styling hold or more conditioning, respectively.
