Welcome To Balbo Beard Co.

Balbo Beard Co. is a small company located in rural Shropshire, UK. 100% handmade, small batch beard products and tattoo care

Why use Balbo beard products?

Our beard oil moisturises facial hair and the skin beneath it. Balbo beard balm also hydrates, conditions and gives a nice hold. Our oils and balms hydrate the the skin and can help to tame and soften beard hair which, over time can often become rough, course and look untamed. Your beard shouldn't look dusty, shaggy or untamed, it should look shiney and groomed!


We are very transparent about our soap ingredients. We have always tried to stay as ethical as possible by only sourcing palm oil from producers who are certified under the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil - RSPO

However, we don’t feel this is making a big enough difference in preventing deforestation and damage to biodiversity such as loss of habitat to species like orangutans that are on the brink of extinction.

We have been trialling and testing different soap recipes that do not contain palm oil and have produced a great one! All Soapy paperwork is currently with our cosmetic chemist for testing. We will keep you informed of progress!

Our Story...

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.

Within 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.
