What is it and how it works
The Pure Primal Beard Balm has the following ingredients and properties. The Grass Fed Tallow and macadamia nut oil is used as a carriers to which all the essential oils and beeswax is added. The tallow makes the product overall more spreadable and soft as the added beeswax is very toffee-like and strong.
