Wearing beard, today, it’s a lifestyle. Beard no longer gives a shabby look, quite the opposite, it marks the personality, the mood of the moment, the personal style. You can wear it short ( the three-days beard), medium-long and long (hipster style), shape it or reduce it to just a goatee. The important thing is to always have it in place. If you are wondering how to have an well-finished beard, we suggest you to start from its hygiene.
The beard makes you feel more “cool”, it gives you a distinguished look or just makes you comfortable raising it. But it’s a clean beard that definitely makes you feel better. To thoroughly cleanse it use a beard shampoo, the best shampoo you can possibly find on the market. It’s likely that so far, not knowing which detergent to use, you’ve tried them all, including soap and hair shampoo. Don’t worry, it’s a common mistake not to repeat and we’ll explain why.
Why use beard shampoo instead of hair shampoo?
Maybe you’ve already tried to wash your hair with a common body wash, with the result of finding an uncontrollable mess on your head. Or you’ve already had that burning sensation in your eyes from the shampoo in the shower.
This is because each product has its own formula and must be used according to the function for which it was created. In addition, each part of our body has a different pH, although always acidic.
A hair shampoo, in fact, is designed to remuve excess sebum produced by hair bulbs.
Its surfactants (detergent ingredients) are suitable for this purpose and must respect the specific physiological balance of the scalp. So, if you try to wash your beard with a hair shampoo, you’ll end up drying your beard a lot and depriving yourself the underlying skin of the hydrolipidic film necessary to maintain good health, risking its exfoliation. To avoid these effects, you can rely on the best beard shampoo with a specific pH for face and beard and, therefore more delicate than a common shampoo but at the same time effective.
The Solid Beard and Face Cleanser CO.SO. Men’s Collection, reflects these characteristics:
being also solid, it is formulated not as a soap but as a real liquid face cleanser without water and respects the pH of the beard and the underlying skin.
How to use the beard and face cleanser
It is better not to neglect the cleaning of the beard, because it can be a receptacle of bacteria and have an unpleasant smell in the long run.

- sneezing and coughing
For all these reasons, the best beard shampoo must perform the function of thoroughly cleanse the beard but in a delicate way. If you don’t know which shampoo to choose from, prefer a natural beard shampoo, such as Officina Naturae Beard and Face Cleanser, which has at least these requirements:
