The Fellows For Him ‘Fruit Twist’ Beard Butter comes in a 60g/2.11oz screw top tin and as the name suggests it has a fruity scent.
It is actually quite firm for a beard butter, however it is easy to scoop from the tin, I would suggest only using a small amount of this butter as it did feel a bit greasy and so if you prefer to use slightly more product, then this will possibly be a problem.
My beard felt softer but as I said there was a slight greasy feel to it which I am personally not keen on. The base is made up from a blend of Jojoba oil, Beeswax Yellow & White, Shea Butter, Argan oil, African Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Seed Butter, Castor Oil, Vitamin E.
Fellows have replied in response to my comments about the Beard Butter feeling slightly greasy:
A small amount will not leave a greasy residue and once combed through a damp beard using a hair dryer it absorb the oils into the skin and will firm up after and take control those unruly hairs with a light hold.
I was also quite surprised to see that Fellows had used Beeswax, the fellows brand has been suitable for Vegans up to this point and I learnt a while ago that Beeswax is a no no, for vegans.
Fellows have responded about this
Fellows isn’t a vegan brand and have never advertised ourselves as vegan brand although we do have products that are suitable for vegans. However in January this year we made a promise that we would become Vegan friendly across the board by January 2018, we have to go through stock and a lengthy process when it comes to rewriting a recipe.
I think that the switch to all Vegan friendly products will see an increase in sales, Vegan beard care products have been fairly hard to source and at one point it was a case of having to purchase Honest Amish from America. However there has now been a few new vegan friendly beard care brands in the UK.
The scent is as I said very fruity and quite a nice scent but then I do like the sweet and citrus scented products. The scent is made up from Sweet Orange, Grapefruit, Lemon and Lime essential oils but there is also Parfum in the ingredients list and I think that’s a shame, this could have been kept 100% natural and still have had a fruity scent with the essential oils used.
