Directions from packaging:

Apply Beard Oil twice daily. For best results we recommend applying after using Velvet Noir Beard Co-Wash to clean your beard. Add a dime sized amount (depending on size of your beard) drops then rub into your beard. Use our wooden Beard comb to evenly distribute the oil throughout your beard. Use our Conditioning Balm 1-2 times daily. Apply a dime sized amount to your hand and rub together until melted. Apply evenly to Beard to ensure you get maximum moisture retention!

Understanding scores

Cosmetics and personal care products are not required to be tested for safety before being allowed on the market. The Skin Deep® scoring system was designed to help the public understand whether a product is safe to use or whether it contains ingredients of concern.

Every product and ingredient in Skin Deep gets a two-part score – one for hazard and one for data availability. The safest products score well by both measures, with a low hazard rating and a fair or better data availability rating.

HOW WE DETERMINE SCORES

Hazard score

The Skin Deep ingredient hazard score, from 1 to 10, reflects known and suspected hazards linked to the ingredients. The EWG VERIFIED™ mark means a product meets EWG’s strictest criteria for transparency and health.

Score legend

Data availability

The Skin Deep data availability rating reflects the number of scientific studies about the product or ingredient in the published scientific literature.
