After almost 4 years of running Magpie Hill Soap,
Rhian wanted to branch out and make beard products after watching the
amazing bearded gymnasts of Cirque Alfonse in their show 'Barbu'.
Balbo Beard Oils were the first product to be developed and launched in January 2017 and were sent off to an independent Beard Product Reviewer (Zec Richardson, Sat on my butt beard product reviews)
for public feedback. The results were great, some 10/10 and 'Gold Beard
Awards'! Our Balms, Wax and Beard Soaps were also sent off for review,
and we were very proud with the results! We also had a great review writen by Rick Eaglestone who tried some of our products.
the next 6 months of launching, beard balms, beard soap and moustache
wax were created and added to the Balbo range. Again, these new products
recieved great feedback as you can see from our Facebook reviews.

pride ourselves in making products using the finest ingredients, such
as Grapeseed Oil, Castor Oil, Argan Oil, Jojoba, Hemp Seed Oil, Shea
Butter, Beeswax and essential oils. Essential Oils
are highly concentrated, fragrant natural constituents that are found
in plants and contain the healing power of the plant from which it was
extracted. Essential Oils, when used
correctly, bring a wide range of health benefits. Balbo’s product range
contains a range of in-house blended essential oils to complement you. You will find ingredients for each product on the item description in
our SHOP section.
