Moustache Wax is essentially a stiff pomade which is applied to ones moustache as a grooming aid to hold the hairs in place throughout the day. Unlike your hair, moustaches come into contact with a lot of things throughout the day that can leave them looking unkempt. Eating, drinking and even just having a good old fashioned chin wag can have an adverse effect on the look of your moustache. For this reason, the formula for moustache waxes has to be that much more robust to withstand this.
The majority of moustache waxes are beeswax based. When you open your moustache wax tin for the first time, you’ll notice the wax has a very hard consistency. By warming the wax it will become malleable causing the shea butter and the oils within the wax to really come to the fore. Either use a hairdryer, leave it for a few moments on a radiator or warm vent or, failing that, just put it in your back pocket.
