  • 5.What skin type do I have? How do I identify it?
    Most men's skin can be classified under 5 buckets: Oily skin: Can be identified with an oily sheen that appears soon after cleansing as well as larger pores. Dry skin: Usually presents itself as slightly tighter skin which may occasionally be flaky, itchy, or red. Combination skin: Identified as an oily T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) with drier cheeks. Normal skin: Even skin tone with no oily sheen or dryness Sensitive skin: Easily affected and susceptible to skin irritations, acne, rashes on even minor exposure to dust and pollutants. It is critical to know what skin type you have and use products that are designed accordingly.
  • 6.How often should I use these products?
    Excess oil, dust, pollution and dead skin cells accumulate on the surface of your skin throughout the day. To keep your skin healthy and clean, we recommend using the cleanser twice a day i.e. once in the morning and once again in the evening. Use the moisturiser to prevent dryness and to soothe your skin after a cleanse.

Beard Care Products
  • 1.What beard will look good on me?
    At some point in every man's life, there comes a time of pure curiosity. When he wonders whether a beard will look good on him or not. If you are thinking of jumping on the beardwagon, hop aboard, but before you do, here are some simple tips to help you choose the right style for your facial fuzz. Grow a beard that makes your face oval: If you have a square/circular face, grow a beard with length. On the other hand, if you have a longer face, grow a beard that adds depth. Avoid the neckbeard: Having a beard does not equal throwing away your razor. An unruly neckbeard can ruin the well-groomed look and needs to be maintained. Find a point placing two fingers horizontally above your Adams apple, and draw a U from the bottom of each ear passing through this point. Use a good trimmer or double-edge razor to get the neckline right. Maintain the beard: Trim regularly as some parts will grow faster and out-of-order than others. Depending on your beard style, skin type, hair quality and climatic conditions, find products that will continually nourish your beard - there is an abundance of great nourishing oils, beard conditioners and other products. If you're growing a beard, commit to taking care of it. Keep it soft: A rough, coarse beard will make you (and your loved ones) fall out of love with it very quickly. Use a nourishing oil as well as a beard shampoo and conditioner to keep it clean, moisturised and soft. After 2-3 months, see if you like how you look. Chances are that if you do, that beard's going to stay with you for a long time.
  • 2.How long does it take to grow a good beard?
    Usually, it takes 1-1.5 months for the beard to grow out completely. After that, it will take another 1-1.5 months for you to trim, nourish, style and shape it to get it looking its best. So overall, the process is 2-3 months long. Patience is key.
  • 3.Why do some men have thick beards while some have patchy/thin beards?
    Just like your skin colour and height, beard growth is also a genetically driven process. More specifically, it is the amount of dihydrotestosterone or DHT in your hormones that will lead to beard growth. However, there are ways to grow a great beard and overcome patches/thin hair. The most important factors, after your DNA, are patience and the right products. Don't believe for a moment that a great beard you've seen in a movie or on television was born overnight. It always takes time and a little effort, but at the end of the day it's worth it.
  • 4.How do I grow a thick, consistent beard?
    Once you've grown out your beard for a few months, here are some tips to guide you to a consistent, thick, healthy beard: Figure out the right beard regimen for you: Use a growth oil with natural ingredients, moisturising shampoo and conditioner, softening beard butter, nourishment oils etc. Be regular and caring. Eat right: Have foods rich in iron, biotin and zinc. Spinach, oysters, eggs, liver, cinnamon, sweet potatoes are some of the foods that will promote healthy beard hair. Exercise: Resistance training is shown to increase DHT levels. So, hit those dumbbells and try to hit a body fat percentage between 10-15% for ideal DHT levels. Sleep well: 8 hours of sleep every night helps regulate DHT levels and ensures you're healthy. A healthy body equals a healthy beard.
  • 5.How do I stop my beard from getting itchy?
    When you are in the initial phase of growing a beard, it will itch. But believe us, after a month or so the itching will stop. Definitely. The important thing is to keep the hair soft and healthy and to keep the skin below it hydrated. Use a good beard oil and apply it so that it finds its way to the skin. This will condition the beard while keeping the skin underneath well hydrated. Use a good beard butter to moisturise and minimise flaking. The important thing is to use products that are meant specifically for the beard and not the scalp. The scalp has around 100k follicles while the facial area has roughly 30k follicles. Hair products also often contain silicone which can make your beard hair appear dull.
  • 6.How do I get rid of beard dandruff?
    There is a micro-organism called Malassezia Globosa which feeds on the natural oils created by your skin, called sebum. This process creates oleic acid, and if your skin is sensitive to the oleic acid, it could result in skin flakes due to over production of skin cells. It is an annoying issue, but pretty common and easy to solve. The simple solution is regular exfoliation. Use a good face scrub and beard wash, preferably during your shower, to gently remove the extra skin and open up the pores. Be careful to not rub too hard - let the products do the exfoliation, not your pressure.
  • 7.How do I stop split ends?
    Split ends occur when your follicles are dry and brittle, which lead to the ends of the hair splitting up. The root cause of this issue is the lack of sebum oil that naturally moisturises the follicles. Often, if your beard is too long or too thick, natural sebum production may not be enough for all the hair. Some of them will not receive the nutrients needed to moisturise and nourish. Use a great beard butter or balm to moisturise regularly and avoid excessive use of a blow dryer. Also, if you use hair dye in your beard, that could also lead to brittle follicles so try avoiding it for a while to see if there is any improvement.
  • 8.How do I prevent losing beard hairs?
    First of all, losing beard hair is absolutely normal. Just like the hair on your head, there is a natural shedding rate for your facial hair as well so there is no need to be alarmed. Just remember not to use excessive force while combing or brushing, or do this for elongated periods of time. It is tempting to play with your beard, but try to moderate it as it puts pressure on the hair follicles. Go easy on your beard, and you'll be okay.
  • 9.What are the unique ingredients used in this range?
    Beard Growth Oil - Cocos Nucifera, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sesamum Orientale (sesame) seed oil, simmondsia chinensia (jojoba) seed oil, Fragrance, Phyllanthus emblica (gooseberry) fruit oil, Vetiveria zizanioides (vetiver) leaf oil, Bacopa monnieri (brahmi) herb oil, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate.

  • 10.Are these ingredients really that important?
    Yes, extremely. India is a country with increasing pollution levels. Our lifestyles are often not healthy. Sometimes, we need external sources of nourishment for our bodies. The face is one of the most sensitive parts of the body and one we should take utmost care of. Personal care products with natural, high quality ingredients are a must for today's grooming needs. We're still learning how to grow, nourish and maintain healthy, great looking beards. Natural ingredients go a long way in ensuring your beard and face stay supple and nourished.
  • 11.Is the manufacturing facility state of the art?
    As a small company, we work closely with large manufacturing partners who have the necessary machinery and wherewithal to make products with highest standards of quality. All our products go through rigorous quality controls and FDA compliances before they reach your beard. We tie up with specialist organisations the world over to source the best natural ingredients and fragrances for you.
  • 12.How long will it take to start observing changes?
    All good things need time and patience. If you take good care of your beard, eat well, sleep well, exercise right - you will start seeing noticeable differences to the beard quality in a matter of 3-4 months.
  • 13.How frequently should I use the beard regimen?
    Everyone has a different frequency which will work for their beard depending on a host of factors. We suggest starting off with alternate day application and then dialling up/down after 2 weeks based on your comfort. Of course, the wax is an occasional product and we do not recommend using as routine care.
