I LOVE this wax! It is made from the pure resin absolute of Black Somali Frankincense and projects its sensuous, Amber-honey scent throughout the day.
It goes on smooth but with a great tackiness that is excellent for the twirls and embellishments of moustache tips. It makes a great “taming” wax for the inevitable beard hair strays that have a mind of their own.
Absolutely Frank- wax goes on smooth without any pulling and due to its high resin content, it acts as a perming agent. This means if you apply it once or twice, your twirls will keep their shape through the day even though there is no sign of the wax.
The Absolute of Frankincense is a pure extract and essence of the resin and essential oil portion of Frankincense tears.
It is made by dissolving raw Frankincense tears in pure alcohol, then put through a fine filter to separate the non-aromatic compounds. The alcohol is then evaporated to create an “Absolute” of Frankincense which is a crystal-clear, honey-like liquid that contains all the fragrance and all the resin compounds of Frankincense.
Absolutely Frank- is a limited edition and one-off production.
It is neutral in colour and works well with all shades of whiskers.
How to use-
Scrape or scoop a lentil-sized amount out with the back of a fingernail, (some people use the rim of the lid for this), and warm it, without rubbing, between fingers before applying.
Apply to the tips and with fingertips, brush against the exterior of the beard to collect stray hairs and “frame” the beard to the desired form.
This product blends seamlessly with beard oils, so the amount of hold and tack in your beard can be adjusted to your liking by adding more wax for firmness and more oil for volume.
This wax/oil blend can be brushed or combed through to shape and set your style.
