Next to our locally sourced, hand processed beeswax, we are also very proud of our shea butter. Refined shea butter is key to the look, feel and health qualities of our Hog Phat beard balms and Rugged Balm skin conditioner.
Shea butter is an extract from the nut of the Shea tree, typically coming from Africa. It is high in fatty acids and vitamins that soften skin and hair, it is an extremely effective anti-inflammatory agent for mild rashes, eczema, etc. and a highly effective moisturizer and barrier against harsh elements. It is a natural anti-oxidant, which promotes anti-aging
The primary ingredient in High Desert Man "Hog Phat" is a very pure, refined, organic Shea Butter that, combined with our base oil blend (very high in Jojoba oil) and our natural beeswax, is unmatched in conditioning, softening and healing properties.
Many companies come across rather flippant about the use of their products; "take a pea-sized amount of balm, rub it into your beard...". However, at High Desert Man, we realize that the key to a healthy, luxerious beard starts with healthy, nourished skin underneath. That is why we promote the High Desert Man Beard regiment for beard care. It is why, after using our products for as little as a week, you will notice a softer beard, less irritation to the skin and overall a healthier face.
