Mauli Beard Oil Review | A story of India’s healing powers

Mauli – a sacred red thread that forms an integral part of India’s blessing rituals. It is given to friends and family as a symbol of protection, connection and wellbeing.

It was a journey to India that birthed the beginning of Mauli – a British independent skincare brand who specialise in products inspired by Ayurvedic principles. For those who don’t know, Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems. Developed over 5,000 years ago it’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit.

Over here at The Beardsman we’re passionate about brands that deliver amazing products, ones that work on your beard and skin, ones that smell great but also brands who give you more than just a product. Brands that have a story and passion behind – it’s that passion that means you’re getting something special, something curated and crafted. Anyone can throw some oils together and create an oil for you beard, but can you build a brand that has a culture and passion?


You’ve heard it before, beards and shaving leave your skin dry, itchy and desperate for conditioning. Mauli have produced an amazing oil. No doubt about it. It’s no secret that some of the best healing and nourishing medicines stem from recipes developed thousands of years ago – why change what works and Mauli have followed that guide albeit tweaking to add some science behind the product.

There’s an argument across the industry that you can’t have premium oils. You have base carrier oils and a few essentials for scent.

While that rings true, it’s the combination of base, essential and fragrance that gives you a premium product. Mauli combine moringa and black seed, argan, watermelon seed, coconut, almond and neem extracts. Six base oils all offering strong benefits that when combined deliver the best oil you can buy for your beard. Add the plethora of essential oils lime, sandalwood, patchouli, geranium blood orange, rose otto, coriander, jasmine sambac, davana, lotus root, champac, ambrette seed and vetiver

Genuinely don’t take it for granted, this beard oil is the nicest smelling oil we’ve ever used. This reminds us of one of those special occasion colognes that you want to wear on date night but end up wearing every day. There’s a reason it won Best Beard oil at the beauty shortlist awards.

Mauli is a brand who’s philosophy extends beyond producing cosmetic products. They don’t fall into a traditional beard care brand however they’ve used their experience and teachings to create one of the best beard oils we’ve used. As an advocate for using natural products on your skin and beard, you’re safe in the knowing that all their products are natural and/or organic and naturally free from synthetic fragrances, parabens, mineral oils, palm oil, silicones, sulphates, propylene glycol, phthalates, GMO, PEGs, TEA and DEA. Never tested on animals. Priced at the higher end of the market – £44 for a 1 fl oz (30ml) bottle, however reminder that this is a combination oil for pre-shave and beard.Worth every penny given the natural goodness, volume of oils and the scent.
