Description

Made with fresh whole resins of Frankincense and Labdanum. (Not just the essential oils), this beard and moustache styling wax helps tame, shape and condition larger moustaches and beards without making them looking stiff or forced.

It highlights a beard’s natural waves, ripples and colour variations while shaping it to your preference.
With a heavy dose of raw Lanolin, Castor oil and Vitamin E., it softens, nourishes and rehydrates facial hair and skin with each application.

Whole resins have a secret power the ancients knew well and used to their advantage. Resins such as Frankincense and Labdanum have the ability to gently and naturally “Perm” our hair, requiring very little product to maintain the style and shape of facial hair. It creates a look that is natural and not held in place with a heavy layer of wax.

The Amber fragrance of BBW is a result of the natural materials it is made of. These include fresh raw beeswax, Lanolin, fresh, fragrant whole Frankincense & Labdanum resins. I have added no essential oils preservatives, colours or fragrance oils.

Babylonian Beard Wax has a deep Amber, spicy/woody, warm, masculine scent. I have found that the scent of Labdanum in one’s beard draws people in. It makes me lift my beard up to my nose when no one is looking so I can inhale the scent of this ancient aromatic. Rich and warm without being overwhelming, its fragrance is exotic, yet familiar.

These ingredients were known in ancient Mesopotamia and were used extensively by the Babylonian, Sumerian, Akkadian and Assyrian upper class and royalty to style and care for their facial hair. The rippled and stylized facial hair we see portrayed in many ancient stone carvings is attributed to the widespread use of Labdanum. (See photos above).

As I have mentioned in my posts, saps and tree oleoresins act as “perming” and training agents that can help set facial hair to any desired shape, requiring less and less grooming products to hold hairs in place.

After working Babylonian Beard Wax into the hair, one can simply style with one’s fingers, a comb or brush and leave it for the day. Once the wax is washed out with warm water and mild soap the hair is “set” and requires very little wax to maintain its new shape. This also means the hair looks naturally contoured and not stiff from wax.

Babylonian Beard wax also makes an ideal nighttime dressing that works to set the beard just as one wishes. As did the Babylonians, one can braid a beard tightly, (tie the ends with a bit of string or wire), let it set overnight and remove the braids when rising to reveal a rippled or waved pattern as in the classic depictions of Babylonian Kings and Gods. The tighter the braid, the sharper the ripples will be. This “perm” will hold for days even after washing. Bits of copper and silver wire were found in the tombs of rich Babylonians leading researchers to assume they were used to both adorn and style facial hair.

It should also be mentioned, one should not apply Babylonian Beard Wax before bed unless it is set in the desired shape. We can just as easily wake up to an unruly, windblown shape, leaving us to fight with it for the duration of the day.

    Ordered this because my wife picked it out, have had mixed results with the scents of other products I’ve ordered elsewhere. I loved them – she didn’t. The fragrance of this wax is fantastic, very aromatic without being overpowering. Love when I’ve been wearing it all day and still catch a hint of it.

    It was spendy – 2 oz shipped to the good ole USA from Canada was $47. Double-ish what I normally spend for product alone, but it will last much longer because….it’s in all appearance, texture and action a mustache wax.

    It’s very hard, you won’t be scooping up a big thumbnail full and working it easily into your beard. I’ve used a hairdryer to soften it up for use – easily the best mustache wax I’ve used and using minimal heated amounts in my palms I lightly coat my beard and the hold has been great. Wife loves it. A win.

    I used to work in men’s grooming, specifically traditional wet shaving and beardsmen products. Dan’s Moustache & Beard Collection is the finest I’ve ever seen. From the aromatic blends to the performance, the stellar collection has a wax for all! Also, the prices are incredible for such finely artisan created products, utilizing only Nature’s offerings. Waaaay better than so many famed products on the market. So many gifts, Mr. Dan has.

    Works great for taming my wiry facial hair. I scrap a bit out, warm it up between my finger tips, add a little beard balm to smooth it out, them apply it to my mustache before brushing it in to spread it out. Works great all day, too

    Beautiful….
    I have a long full grey beard and I have used dozens and dozens of commercial as well as small batch ma n pa types of balms and wax's and I will tell you this stuff is right on top. It comes out pretty solid and you have to work it a bit in the hands but the end result is perfection. It has taken my beard to the next level and the scent is just amazing. Shipping was spot on and I would HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone.

    Highest quality beard balm I have ever used. It has a firmer composition that other balms I have used, but brushes in easily and leaves my beard soft and stiff or waxy. It also has enough hold to handlebar my mustache and keep it in shape all day.

    I purchased the 1/2 oz. tin to give it a go, and came back to Dan's shop about a week later to buy the larger size. I have never used a beard balm even close to similar to this. I just can't get over how well this behaves on my whiskers. The scent seems to begin and end with seasoned hardwood wood and violin-rosin. Throughout the day I notice it sequencing through horse tack, amber and honey, throwing off hints of lemon and Listerine or old barber shop– bold aromas with fleeting surprises.
