Beards are not normal hair. You can wash them with the same shampoo (Beviro's is gentle enough for that too), but it is better to use a special beard wash. Plantain, birch and castor oil extracts make your beard softer, hydrated and easier to comb after shampooing. It only has a mild, natural, slightly citrus scent so it won't interfere with your perfume or beard oil. Made in the Czech Republic. Like all Beviro products.
