About Balbo Beard Co.

Balbo Beard Co. is a small company run by Rhian Gurney located in rural Shropshire, UK. Rhian creates 100% handmade, small batch, natural beard products.

After almost 3 years of running Magpie Hill Soap, Rhian wanted to branch out and make beard products after watching the amazing bearded gymnasts of Cirque Alfonse in their show ‘Barbu’.

Balbo Beard Oils were the first product to be developed and launched in January 2017 and were sent off to an independent Beard Product Reviewer for public feedback. The results were great, some 10/10 and Gold Cup Awards!

Within the next 6 months of launching, beard balms, beard soap and moustache wax were created and added to the Balbo range. Again, these new products recieved great feedback as you can see from our Facebook reviews.

“Couldn’t be happier. Great service and lovely lady thankyou” Mr T. via Facebook

“Great products, well presented and with a nice personal feel to it all. Have tried 3 oils and a soap so far and they all smell and feel amazing!” Mr B. via Facebook

“…I will be 100% buying from here again! And i would advise anyone who has a beard or anyone who has a partner with a beard to buy from here!” Mr L. via Facebook

“Absolutely fantastic products and amazing customer service. Rhian really does go above and beyond in creating the finest oils and soaps for your face fuzz…I couldn’t give a higher recommendation.” Mr P via Facebook

We pride ourselves in making products using the finest ingredients, such as Grapeseed Oil, Castor Oil, Argan Oil, Jojoba, Hemp Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Beeswax and essential oils. Essential Oils are highly concentrated, fragrant natural constituents that are found in plants and contain the healing power of the plant from which it was extracted. Essential Oils, when used correctly, bring a wide range of health benefits. Balbo’s product range contains a range of in-house blended essential oils to complement you. You will find ingredients for each product on the item description in our SHOP section.

Natural Allergens

Balbo Beard Co. are required by European law (Cosmetics Products Safety Regulations 2003), to label with the relevant information all products that contain concentrations of 26 identified allergens above a certain (very low) limit, 16 of which are natural and are found in commonly used essential oils. A full list of ingredients can be found in the description of all our Beard products sold on our website; if you have any concerns please consult your doctor, or carry out a patch test on your skin before using our products.

Nut Allergy?

The types of nut allergy can vary. If you have allergic contact dermatitis which is triggered by tree nuts, then you should avoid Argan Oil which is prescent in our products. If you have a very serious allergy to ingesting nuts, and are at risk of anaphylactic shock, then you should be very cautious about using Argan Oil. Again, please consult your doctor if you have any concerns. We use Argan oil in our Beard Oils and Balms.
