I had hoped that Manmane ‘Jardin Du Monde’ Beard Oil was going to be a good one, I was wrong….. It’s bloody amazing!
The scent is created by blending Grapefruit, May Chang, Ylang Ylang extra , Geranium rose and Lavender True. This has created a floral scent with a slight citrus background. We associate floral as being feminine but that is not the case here, this oil is really amazing. Now I don’t normally get on with Ylang Ylang but it has been blended so well with these other oils that it hasn’t bothered me, I normally get the scent of rubber from Ylang Ylang but not this time.
Manmane ‘Jardin Du Monde’ Beard Oil like the ‘Arctic Gale‘ beard oil has a base blended from Castor oil, Sweet almond oil, Jojoba oil, Avocado oil, Argan oil and Vitamin E oil. The result is a beautiful golden oil with a slightly thicker than normal consistency and it truly is liquid gold.
One of the questions Manmane are often asked is ” Why did you choose the ingredients you use”. This took a long time and a lot of research and experimentation so here is a run down for you.
Manmane produces vegan beard care products using only plant-based ingredients, you would expect that this means that it is the Quorn to a fillet steak but not at all, this oil is in no way compromised because of that, in fact it is way better than a lot of oils that I have tested.
My beard has felt good, looked good and the scent is perfect, my wife is also a fan of the scent and that is always a bonus.
Manmane ‘Jardin Du Monde’ Beard Oil is available in 10ml for £7.00 or 30ml for £15 from the website and both sizes have a glass pipette dropper to dispense the oil.
So Who are Manmane?
Manmane has been a concept worked upon by the founder Michael Thompson since 2013. We are finally opening in November 2015 after a long tweaking period. Michael combined his passion for nature and cooking and put them to good use creating our concoctions.
We sell plant-based beard products because there is basically no good reason to include animal derived products in your formulations. Mike has sported a beard on and off for many years and recently turned Vegan. This was a personal choice based upon his personal beliefs, his partner Kirsty is a “normal diet” person and they live together happily. Mike’s simple message is if you can use plants to replace animal derived products Why wouldn’t you? Non Vegans are very welcome..lol.
We are based in Swansea Wales UK. We are situated between Blackpill ( made famous by Dylan Thomas) and a lovely village called “The Mumbles” just at the start of the beautiful Gower peninsula.
Every morning we take inspiration from the fantastic view we have of Swansea Bay. We hand pour all are Beard oil , Beard Balm and Moustache wax and make it in very small batches from scratch. We have had all are products put through a proper Cosmetic product assessment which is a legal requirement in the EU. All our products have been properly placed on the EUs Cosmetic portal again a requirement before it can be produced and sold.
We are a Company that is run every day with good ethics at the centre of our every action. We believe after a lot of perfecting and tweaking of our product formulations over a long period of time has resulted in a fantastic range. I hope you take a look around and find something for yourself or your loved ones.
