While Professor Fuzzworthy’s beard shampoo may not by your typical shampoo that you are used to (being that it comes in a block form similar to a bar of soap rather than a liquid form), don’t let the name or form confuse you – this stuff is the real deal.
Made in the land down under (Australia), this beard shampoo is without a doubt one of the best on the market. There are several reasons why we like this beard shampoo, but lets first take a look at the ingredients listed on the side of the box:
- Mount Wellington spring water
- Olive oil
- Coconut oil
- Castor oil
- Soy wax
- Leatherwood beeswax
- Tasmanian Seaweed extract
- Leatherwood honey
- Cocoa powder
- Essential oils
Noticeable ingredients that are missing from this product are:
- Parabens (Preservatives)
- Synthetic fragrance
- Palm oil
Made up of all natural ingredients, this beard shampoo won’t make you feel like you are compromising cleanliness in order to get something that is “all natural”. A delicate balance of oils, waxes, and essential oils will give off a bit of a subtle woodsy smell. However, being that you are using this product in the shower, its no substitute for a beard oil and the scent will likely dissipate as soon as you use a towel to dry off your beard.
One thing to note about this specific beard shampoo is that since it comes in block form, you will want to rest it on a soap dish or metal rack that has a bit of drainage.
Being that this doesn’t have synthetic ingredients that help keep it hard, it may dissolve quicker than a traditional bar of soap. For maximum life you may want to wash your beard outside of your shower and keep the bar stored in your medicine cabinet (although this isn’t necessary).
When it comes to the actual washing part of your beard, just a bit of a application of the bar will go a long way. So unless you are sporting a yeard (beard for a year), exercise caution when making the initial application. The suds from the bar will form rather quickly giving you a nice rich lather.
Another note regarding performance is that since this product contains several of the key ingredients found in traditional beard balm (carrier oils, essential oils, and beeswax), you may notice a reduction in the amount of beard oil or balm that you will be using after washing your beard.
Therefore this product makes for an excellent compliment to your other key beard products, unlike some of the other beard shampoos we reviewed.
In regards to the actual cost of the Professor Fuzzworthy’s beard shampoo, its not bad at all. Typically beardsmen have to pay a premium for products that are all natural or organic, however with this beard shampoo it typically retails for less than $15 (far below our $20 threshold) making it one of the cheaper beard shampoos being reviewed.
Lastly, when it comes to beard shampoos, Professor Fuzzworthy’s is pretty well regarded within the bearded community with some beardsmen saying that they “constantly get compliments on how soft it is” to “definitely recommend”.
To drive home the peer review even further, Professor Fuzzworthy’s Amazon rating is a staggering 4.7 out of 5 (with over 500 reviews). To note, since this is an Australian made product, chance of you finding this at your local barbershop may be a bit tough, therefore online retailers like Amazon regularly stock this product.
