High Desert Man Products

High Desert Man, LLC believes that less is more. This is evident in all of our products that are simple, natural and effective.

Oils

We use a simple base of four ingredients. Others have a long list of carriers, aiming to impress the customer, but the truth is that you can only get so much moisturizing and conditioning. The oils used by High Desert Man are proven effective, light in nature and provide for a soft, healthy beard and skin beneath.
We use a much higher volume of Jojoba oil than most companies do, which yields a much softer, conditioned beard for a longer period of time. It's the most expensive carrier commonly used by beard companies, which is why many use so many carriers - to mitigate the cost of the oil. We don't skimp, because we want to present to our customer the best product they can use.

Balms

Our beard balm is called "Hog Phat". It gets its name from the unique texture and emollient qualities that others don't have. A great deal of time, money and effort was spent, using and comparing other products. We formulated a balm that emulsifies easily, spreads evenly through the beard and nurtures healthy skin below and a soft, conditioned beard. A key ingredient (over half) in Hog Phat is our 100% organic and natural Shea Butter, which, along with softening the beard, heals and protects your skin underneath.
We are confident that you will not find another product that conditions and moisturizes as well as ours, and that your beard will feel softer, longer than it has using any other brand.

Local-Source Beeswax

In Hog Phat, Rugged Balm and other products coming, we use a hand-processed beeswax that we source from a neighbor who has been doing commercial bee keeping in an ethical, responsible way for over 20 years. We receive raw, unfiltered wax and we filter it to remove bee parts, debris, etc. The product is a dark, almost pliable wax with a higher volume of honey and proplis, which greatly elevate the anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties of our wax.
The wax ends up having an almost honey-nut aroma, however this is not detectable in any of our products, except for Rugged Balm. Our wax is a key part of the final tactile and working characteristic of our balms and we are very proud to be supporting a local business in the process.

 Other Ingredients

The remainder of ingredients common to our products - carrier oils, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, etc. are all 100% organic, all natural and of the highest quality from reputable suppliers. Every ingredient is stored in a controlled, temperature-stable, dark environment to ensure the freshest, most effective end product to our customers.
