The Problem: In order for your beard to grow, it needs moisture, which it takes from your skin. This depletes your skins' resources, leading to dry, flaky skin, irritating spots under the beard, and beard dandruff. As a result, both your skin and beard suffer: Your skin dries out, whilst your beard becomes dry, wiry and brittle, with split-ends. , The Solution: Used every night, Gnarly Joe Beard Softener and Face Cream replaces the moisture and nutrients in your skin, which feeds both your beard, and the skin underneath. Your skin will be properly hydrated and moisturised, and your beard will grow stronger and thicker, as it receives natural oils and butters at the roots of the shafts, making it softer to the touch.
