Beard Wash (Sulfate-Free, Betaine-Free)
Formulated with naturally-based ingredients, this beard wash is carefully crafted to be tough on coarse facial hair, yet gentle on the sensitive skin underneath. The combination of Cola®Det DEF-61 and Cola®Mate LA-40 MB creates a rich lather that surrounds each strand, effectively removing excess oil and contaminants without the use of harsh sulfates. Cola®Lipid SAFL gently conditions and soothes the skin underneath, promoting healthy hair growth and leaving your beard softer and more manageable. This wash is mild enough for daily use to keep your beard clean, healthy, and shiny.
