Asking Vainglory About Beard Styling and Products

When you see a new product on a shelf, you may have a number questions about it. We selected frequently asked questions about Vainglory and provided answers so you'll be in the know.
Is Vainglory similar to a mustache and beard wax?

Clay is a cosmetics term like pomade or gel based on where your product falls between high and low hold, and shine or matte finish. Gel has high shine and high hold; the hold is from cross-polymer linkages. Pomade has high shine and medium to high hold; the hold is from stiff waxes. Cream (Bryll cream) has low hold and medium shine; the hold is from oils. Clay falls in the high hold low shine category.

A lot of beard products contain coconut oil does Vainglory?

There’s no coconut oil in Vainglory because coconut oil is garbage. It has the highest comedogenic (read: pimple causing) rating of any oil. It offers nothing in the way of hold or conditioning, and leaves beard greasy and shiny. Plus, beards that smell like food are off-putting. Coconut oil is trendy, but we’re not into it.

What type of beard is Vainglory for?

Vainglory is for skin that is growing new beards or for old-growth beards. Every ingredient that goes into this product is something I put on my face. Every oil I picked for its specific properties. The additives (like witch hazel and pantethenol) are all things I’ve researched. This is truly a bespoke product that I get to share with you. But you have to know someone to get it.

          I am pretty Particular when it comes to beard care. Using a premiere product such as VainGlory not only keeps the facial hairs under control and conditioned.

            Shaving every day in the military, I’d get ingrown hairs on my neck. Vainglory softened everything up and no more ingrown hairs.

              Once he started using the Beard Clay it only took a couple of days before the texture of his beard completely changed. I love how soft it made it, and the scent is awesome!

                Vainglory doesn’t leave the oily residue all over my beard through the day. I don’t have to worry about it getting on my phone and my collars and my jackets.
