For those of us growing beards, we want to be able to care for our beards without breaking the wallet. Making your own beard oil at home, while fun, can be very costly because of all the different ingredients that are required to make a good beard oil.
There is no question that there are savings to be had if you buy a beard oil brand that is pre-made. But these days, with the explosion in popularity in beards and beard oil brands, there are dozens and dozens of vendors out there. It would require a great deal of time to research all of the different available brands to find the most cost-effective ones.
That’s why I decided to do the research for you and post it all in this article for your benefit.
What you will find below is 29 of the top beard oil brands. I have organised them from the most cost-effective to least. To determine the cost effectiveness of each brand I simply divided the cost of the bottle by the bottle size. The brand with the lowest cost/oz are the brands which will give you the most beard oil for your money.

So there you have it! In the above chart, you will find beard oils for as low as $2.37 per ounce all the up to $24.00 per ounce. That’s quite a spread!
Many people assume that making something yourself is cheaper than buying it from a store. In the case of bear oils, this is only true if you plan to mass produce beard oil, which you would only do if you planned on selling it.
Even the most expensive brand in the table above, Jack Black Authentic & Original at $24 per ounce is less expensive than buying all the ingredients for even a modest beard oil recipe that only calls for a few ingredients.
Notice that some brands such as Beard Gains, Drunken Cavemen and Beard Right come with extra goodies like beard combs and beard balm. This might be a good buy for you if you don’t have a beard comb yet.
If you’re someone who uses beard oil very often and go through a lot of it, the Grave Before Shave variety 4-pack would allow you switch us the blend every once in a while instead of always using the same old product. It’s $10 per once, but the cost savings are huge compared to buying all the ingredients needed to make 4 different recipes of beard oils on your own.
