Mountaineer Brand ‘Chaga Shampoo’ Bar is made from Chaga tea amongst other things, I had never heard of Chaga tea and so I had to find out what it is. Chaga is a Mushroom that grows on Birch trees and has earnt the title “King of Medicinal Mushrooms” as it can  stimulate the immune system, reduce Inflammation, helps with skin anti ageing and can help regulate blood pressure.

So I can see why Mountaineer Brand have used Chaga tea in this soap, it could be very useful to keep the skin under our beard in the best condition possible and help prevent the dreaded itch and spots. As well as Chaga Tea the shampoo bar also contains Olive Oil, Avocado Oil, Castor Oil, Shea Butter, and Tea Tree Oil.

The creamy coloured Mountaineer Brand ‘Chaga Shampoo’ Bar roughly weighs 3.5-4.5 oz and roughly measures 8 x 6 x 2cm (This varies as it’s a handmade product) and has a gentle and pleasant scent. The shampoo bar quickly produced a decent lather and was easy to rinse from my beard. I had used a balm and a heavy wax and the ‘Chaga’ Shampoo Bar left my beard very clean and feeling softer. A bar this size is liable to last quite a while if just used for your beard.

It is important to use a dedicated Soap or shampoo for your beard as they wont strip the oils from your beard and you can also use the ‘Chaga Shampoo’ Bar on your hair and body.

Mountaineer Brand ‘Chaga Shampoo’ Bar from their website costs $6.50 which at today’s exchange rate (20th Dec 16) is £5.26 and Mountaineer Brand offer free shipping on orders over $35, I expect this is just within the United States though!

Mountaineer Brand About Us

Mountaineer Brand was started in 2013 by Eric Young. Eric personally researches and develops his product with a passion that can be seen in his work. Mountaineer Brand was born after Eric struggled to find quality beard care products at a price that he could easily work into his already tight budget. Eric began to make beard oil and balm in his kitchen thinking it would be a nice hobby and that he could supplement his meagre income.

Mountaineer Brand is dedicated to simplicity and value. We use top-quality, 100% natural ingredients and we never add anything artificial–no chemicals, no fragrance, no compromise.  Our packaging is simple; we skip the decorative bottles and other unnecessary packaging, and since we don’t spend money on fancy packaging, neither do our customers. Mountaineer Brand allows you to experience a luxury product without the financial sacrifice.

Mountaineer Brand is now sold world-wide on the Internet and to retail clients in Sweden, Australia, and other locations across the globe. You can find our products on the shelves in many well-know retail locations such as Whole Foods and Dillard’s as well as several small retail and boutique locations throughout the US. Our ever-growing presence in the marketplace is a testament to the quality of our products and the loyalty of our customers.

Although we have a global presence, West Virginia is our home. Like most West Virginians, our state is a source of pride. The name “Mountaineer Brand,” of course, is a nod to the Mountain State, and  the state motto is included as part of our logo. The motto, “montani semper liberi” means “Mountaineers are Always Free”. West Virginia will always be part of who we are. Wild, Wonderful, Free.
