Beards are big business! Not just in the sense they are growing on the faces of every other man, but also with the huge increase in products available to love and care for them.

If you were to ask your dad what his beard care regime was like back in the 60's, you would probably be treated to a very confused look. Beard care was never much more than get up and go, with the occasional brush for very special occasions.

The times are-a different, beard care and maintenance is a relatively new trend that has exploded with thousands of companies producing beard oils which claim to soften the beard hair and create the perfect environment for healthy growth. Beard oils are being manufactured and sold across the globe by both small "one man" home-based companies, and larger corporates that have a full research and marketing team.

So which oils are the best and which are right for your beard? Contrary to popular belief, it's not necessarily the larger companies that are throwing out the leading products. Some of our best selling beard oils are produced right here in the UK by small one man companies.

There are thousands of beards oils available to choose from, The Beard Shed thoroughly test and evaluate as many as possible to bring you a selection of only the purest quality and finest scented oils to care for your beard.
