On the first Saturday of September, i.e Saturday the 5th of September 2015, a tradition known as World Beard Day takes place across the world. World Beard Day is all about promoting and elevating the global status of the the beard. We appreciate how difficult it can be to grow a beard. You must have dedication and perseverance, this is why we take a day out to celebrate the bearded man. Beards make you look cooler, too little facial hair maintenance however, can result in you looking as though you have been shipwrecked on a desert island with only a netball for company. In recognition we have compiled a list with the essentials every bearded man needs.

Beardsley – Ultra Shampoo 

Facial hair is exposed to environmental factors causing bacteria to linger, meaning beards need to be washed regularly . Ultra Shampoo is specifically formulated for beards with a mild, pleasant formula made with natural extracts. Coconut Oil deeply cleanses the hair and skin beneath for a thorough cleanse. Botanical Bark extracts aid in the skins healing process and reduce excess oil.
