I have been using Akhi Beards – Premium Original Beard Butter for the past three days.
Now we are never too old to learn something new and I have indeed learnt something new. On the Akhi Beards website it says ,100% permissible (Halal)’. I had no idea that Halal covered items outside of food and so I had to have a read and educate this old brain of mine.
The Akhi Beards – Premium Original Beard Butter is made from Cocoa Butter, Mango Butter, Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Castor Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E (Tocopherol) and a fusion of Essential Oils. Essential oils not listed but should be under EU cosmetic regulations along with a list of allergens.
The result is a very soft butter that looks very light and once you scoop a small amount out and work it in your palms, it ends up very creamy. It is easily and quickly absorbed into the beard hair and of course you have to make sure to work it right in and onto the skin under your beard.
It is very like a product that I have used before but lighter, I love the hold it gives my beard and it leaves the beard hair feeling soft. The ingredients will also help to prevent beard itch, split ends, it will help to stop spots forming under the beard and will promote strong and healthy growth.
The scent is chocolate from the Cocoa butter and I am sure that I am picking up some citrus or zesty notes. I do know that I love the scent and my daughter even commented on the scent as I wheeled past her.
Best of all has to be the price, we all know expensive beard care can be but the Akhi Beards – Premium Original Beard Butter is very reasonably priced with the 60ml priced at £5.49 and the 120ml at £7.49 from the website and I have to urge you to try this product. Both sizes come in a glass jar with a metal screw lid.

The journey all began when I first started practising Islam, searching for products to nourish and to help maintain my beard. I quickly found that this was not as straight forward as one would think. The market seemed to be flooded with products that contained hazardous substances, alcohol or animal derived ingredients.
I remember surfing the internet searching for suitable products. Reading lists upon lists of ingredients that required a chemistry degree not only to read but also to pronounce!
Spending the majority of my time googling words like, Sodium Tallowate, hoping they were safe to use but more importantly permissible. 9 times out of 10 I found that, a lot of these beard and hair products contained banned substances. I mean, who would of known that Sodium Tallowate (popular in soaps) is mostly derived from beef fat!
I think it’s safe to say that we’ve all been in this disappointing situation, whether it’s on the internet or in the supermarket aisle.
As a result I began moisturising my beard with base oils such us, regular almond oil and castor oil. Almost instantly I noticed the difference in the softness and overall appearance of my beard. Before long, I began mixing my very own scents and blends.
اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰه In 2017 by the grace and permission of ALLAH سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, we launched Akhi Beards – A permissible alternative brand of beard grooming products.
I pray that these products can benefit you as it has for me.
