The Top Benefits of Using Glycerin for Men's Skin and Hair

Hey guys, have you heard of glycerin? If not, you might want to keep reading.

Glycerin is a clear, odorless, and tasteless liquid that is commonly used in skincare and personal care products. It's derived from plant-based oils, and it has a number of benefits for the skin. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider using products that contain glycerin:

  1. It's a humectant: Glycerin is a humectant, which means it helps to draw moisture into the skin. This can help to keep your skin hydrated and plump, which is especially important for men who have dry or dehydrated skin.
  2. It's gentle: Glycerin is a non-irritating and non-toxic ingredient, which makes it suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
  3. It can help to improve the appearance of dry or damaged skin: Glycerin can help to improve the appearance of dry, rough, or damaged skin, as it helps to repair and restore the skin's natural barrier.
  4. It can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles: Glycerin can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as it helps to plump and hydrate the skin. This makes it a great choice for men who are starting to see the signs of aging.

It can be used on the hair: In addition to its skin benefits, glycerin can also be used on the hair to add moisture and improve its appearance. It can help to tame frizz, add shine, and make the hair more manageable.

To use products that contain glycerin, simply look for them in your skincare or personal care products. You can also use pure glycerin directly on the skin or hair, either on its own or mixed with other ingredients to create a custom treatment.

Incorporating glycerin into your grooming routine can help to improve the health and appearance of your skin and hair, leaving you looking and feeling your best. So if you're a millennial man looking to upgrade your grooming game, consider giving glycerin a try.

Coffee is a natural exfoliant that can help to slough away dead skin cells, revealing smoother, more radiant skin.

Mango butter is a natural, nourishing ingredient that helps to moisturize and protect the skin. It's rich in fatty acids and vitamins, which help to soothe and repair dry, damaged skin. Mango butter also has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to reduce redness and irritation.

Benefits of Cupuacu Butter

Cupuacu is a tropical fruit native to the Amazon rainforest and known for its skin-loving properties. It's rich in fatty acids and antioxidants, which help to nourish and protect the skin. Cupuacu also has a high water content, which helps to hydrate and plump the skin, giving it a smooth, healthy appearance.

Benefits of Using an Emulsifier In Our Dark Roast Coffee Scrub

Our Dark Roast Coffee Scrub also contains an emulsifier, which helps to evenly distribute the ingredients and makes the scrub easy to rinse off. This means you can enjoy the benefits of the scrub without worrying about greasy residue or clogged pores. The emulsifier helps to create a non-greasy, clean feeling on the skin, so you can feel fresh and revitalized after using the scrub.

How it Works

To use our Dark Roast Coffee Scrub, simply apply it to damp skin in circular motions, massaging it in for a few minutes. The coffee and other ingredients will work to exfoliate and nourish the skin, while the emulsifier helps to evenly distribute the ingredients and make the scrub easy to rinse off.

Great ingredients are the backbone of any great product. At Dapper Guru, we are always searching for the best products that help you look your best.

One of the ingredients that we are very excited about is Cupuacu Butter. I know I know I have a hard time pronouncing it as well. It’s a fantastic cosmetic butter that comes from the tropical Amazon forest regions of Brazil. It is packed with rich nutrients that help dry, damaged skin and hair. It is commonly referred to as vegetable lanolin due to its ability to moisturize, similar to lanolin.

How We Use It:

Beard hair tends to be dry and coarse. We need moisture and hydration to grow fully healthy beards. That’s where Cupuacu butter comes in.

Cupuacu butter can attract 240% more water. We use it in our Havana Beard Balm to draw moisture to the beard and hair. It helps the hair to become softer and fuller. It locks in moisture as well, so it’s great to use after washing your beard while it’s still damp.

How you can grow an amazing beard using beard butter

If your goal is to create the most amazing beard out there then beard butter is a product you should look into. Beard butter is an option when you want more conditioning and moisturizing than beard oil. It’s very useful if you have a longer thicker beard. It penetrates deeper into the hair and scalp that’s helpful for men with a fuller beard. That’s not saying it can’t be used for you with a shorter beard. Beard butter is also packed with vitamins, essential fatty acids, and minerals that is amazing for the skin and hair. If you're serious about your beard care then beard butter is a game-changer. 
A well groomed man with a beard

What Is It?

Beard butter is a combination of cosmetic butter and oils that provides deep moisturizing and conditioning to the beard. It is also used as a styling agent that helps make the beard tame and manageable with a light to medium hold. It is a thick buttery consistency that is solid at room temperature but melts when you apply it. 

What’s In It?

The most important part of beard butter is the ingredients. Cosmetic butter is rich in nutrients for your skin and hair. They are great at providing moisture and also allowing the hair to be conditioned and tamed. Beard butter will create a rich conditioning effect for your hair while providing shine and manageability. It is also easier to apply than beard oil.
Beard butter is made by combining cosmetics butter with oils. For our beard butter, we use premium butter and oils that you won’t find in most standard beard butter. Our beard butter is formulated to be highly conditioning and moisturizing but non-greasy. We use mango butter as our base due to its ability to be highly moisturizing without being greasy. Next, kokum butter is added for its ability to heal the skin, anti-aging properties, promote beard growth and great for sensitive skin. Babassu oil is a light oil from Brazil that is great at moisturizing the hair and adding volume without being greasy and heavy. Other oils and butter that are included are cocoa butter, castor oil, jojoba oil, almond oil, and vitamin e oil. These are premium butters and oils that aren’t included in most beard products out there. 

The Benefits 

Beard butter will give your beard deeper conditioning and moisturizing than beard oil. The butter is better at locking in moisture and also has additional benefits such as healing and antibacterial (kokum butter) properties. They are packed with nutrients that needed to maintain a growing healthy beard. Beard butter is especially great for longer beards that need more moisture and conditioning than they can get from beard oil. If you’re serious about your beard and want to create the best conditions for growing an awesome mane, then beard butter is something you need to add to your beard grooming routine. 
What many forget is that there’s skin under the beard, and that also needs to be taken care of. Beard butter with its nutrient-packed butter and oils will help create good skin conditions that will promote beard growth. 

How To Apply Beard Butter 

The best way to use beard butter is daily after you have washed your beard or showered, but you can apply to a dry beard as well. Take a dime-size amount and work it into your beard until the beard butter is evenly worked throughout the hair. Style as you wish. It will give a light to medium hold. Our beard butter is formulated to be fast-sinking and non-greasy, meaning the beard butter will rub fast into your skin and hair, and won’t have a lasting oily feel on your face and hands. 
The benefit of applying beard butter on a wet beard is that it locks in the moisture from the water. This gives even a better moisturizing and conditioning effect to your beard. If you don’t wash your beard, even wetting it a little before applying beard butter will produce better results.
Something to add: Beard butter isn’t a replacement for your beard oil, you can use it alongside it. Beard oil is great for providing moisture, but beard butter gives even more benefits. The best way to combine beard oil and beard butter is to add a little beard oil to your beard, and then rub in the beard butter to lock in the moisture. 
If you want to go to the next level with your beard care, beard butter is t a great option for your beard grooming routine. If you are having issues with a dry beard, dry skin, irritation, and beard dandruff, or just want a healthier and fuller beard you can’t go wrong with a quality beard butter. Our Havana Beard Butter is made with natural premium butter and oils, a great scent, it’s nongreasy, and makes your beard look like the beard it was always made to be!
