River Peak Apothecary

We get excited about salons (and barbershops) crafting their own products that cater to their specific clientele. If it has great packaging and a fragrance that makes you want to bathe in it daily, even better. So when we learned that Tyler and Natalie, owners of Beardsgaard Barbers, created their own line of grooming products called River Peak Apothecary, we immediately knew what our giveaway for the month of June was going to be. 

Here are the products that were given away:

  • River Peak Apothecary Dragonsea Beard Oil
  • River Peak Apothecary Deepwell Beard Butter
  • River Peak Apothecary Stone Tea Lip Butter

Before we give you a more in-depth description and explanation of each item, let’s just back things up and explain something. Tyler and Natalie are true nerds at heart. They embrace everything Tolkien and would destroy you in a battle of Game of Thrones trivia, so it comes as no surprise that their fine line of products would have unique names. Heck, the use the following to describe their retail area!

“In the land of Beardsgaard lie the kingdoms of Manegard, Beardenheim, and Shavehalla, the kingdoms bordered by great ranges of misty mountains and rushing rivers. Where the twain meet rises a great peak, topped by a dark tower. In that tower dwells a mad alchemist, his vast apothecary stocked with the magical potions the residents of Beardsgaard require.”

Let’s have the fine folks at Beardsgaard tell us more about each one. The following information and descriptions are from the River Peak Apothecary website.

River Peak Apothecary Dragonsea Beard Oil

There are plenty of beard oils out there for fine to medium beards, the all-purpose beard oils. Not too many are targeted toward the big, dry problem cases. But man do we get a lot of those in the doors of Beardsgaard, so we made our oil just for them. This is not for fine beards or those for whom mere conditioner does the trick. This is for the bikers, the outdoorsmen, the workers, the men whose beards take a beating. With a mix of quick and slow absorbing oils, you get long-lasting moisture and evocative scents that just don’t quit, made of oils with skin and hair benefits all their own.

This one contains Sea Buckthorn oil, one of nature’s highest sources of beta carotene, which makes Dragonsea particularly resplendent on ginger beards, or any beards with a touch of red to them. Immediately and even more with continued use, it gives you fire beard.

Dragonfire sweeps through a seaside market town. Wood smolders, precious exotic spices and florals ignite and both citrus fruits and the very sea vaporize in an instant.

For heady summer nights with bonfires blazing near the ocean. Made for beards in need of serious moisture and manageability. Banishes beardruff, smooths, protects, and makes both your beard and your face underneath happy.”

Scent: Deep smoke, piquant spice, dry sweetness.

Ingredients: Grapeseed Oil, *Hemp Seed Oil, *Sunflower Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, *Sweet Almond Oil, Avocado Oil, Castor Oil, *Macadamia Nut Oil, Oat Oil, Borage Oil, *Evening Primrose Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E Oil

River Peak Apothecary Deepwell Beard Butter

“This beard butter was crafted for beards in dark places, parched and impenetrable facial formations seeking the deep renewal that the ancient places of the earth have to offer. Whipped with our signature beard oil, this exquisite blend of natural butters quenches, softens, smooths and detangles even the most rock solid beards. If you have a beard in which combs have been lost, this is your holy grail.”

Deepwell is…the deep, warm places of the earth, gleaming golden by dwarven torchlight, things and places as they have been for time unending.

River Peak Apothecary Stone Tea Lip Butter

This lip butter may be the perfect thing for your lips. Most lip balms and butters are too shiny, too waxy, too sticky or just don’t stick around. This one is built for those who want to keep their lips from cracking off, but don’t want to feel like they have a bunch of stuff on their lips. This blend of beeswax and butters is smooth spreading and wears like a second skin on your lips.

Stone Tea is…a spot of tea with a swirl of wildflower honey and summer stonefruit.

Ingredients: {All butters} Beeswax, Ricebran Oil, Meadowfoam Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Mango Butter, Kokum Butter. {Flavored varieties} Cetearyl Alcohol, Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate, Natural & Artificial Flavors, Ethyl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol, Water, Caramel Color.
