GATO strong moustache wax is a strong hold wax for shaping, styling, grooming, training and caring for your moustache.
It provides a good level of hold and works well for handlebar moustaches (though you may find that Lip Weasel very strong wax works even better for them).
This wax is made from the finest natural ingredients and contain a range of highly nutritious carrier oils and butters to moisturise the hair follicles as well as a greater concentration of beeswax to provide hold and pliability to moustaches.
It is stronger than the Bart Randolph wax, but not as strong as the extra strong Lip Weasel wax.
It is useable straight from the tin and easy to apply, just keep it in a moderately warm environment (e.g. in your pocket) before applying.
Made by a man with a thick moustache, this wax is especially formulated to provide the best care, nourishment, styling and hold for your moustache and skin.
GATO strong moustache wax contains:
- Beeswax: Beeswax is high in vitamin A which locks moisture into the skin, keeping it really soft. it is anti-allergenic and anti-inflammatory making it excellent for soothing irritated skin. It’s also excellent for those who suffer with skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and rosacea. Beeswax acts as a layer of protection when applied to the skin, protecting it from harsh environmental conditions. Beeswax is not only an excellent natural skin and beard moisturiser, it also locks the moisture in. Beeswax also helps stimulate healthy moustache growth.
- Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is rich is lauric acid. Lauric acid penetrates the hair shaft and nourishes it with vitamins, minerals and fatty acids, improving the overall health of the beard. Coconut oil helps moustaches to grow longer and thicker. Coconut oil also helps improve blood circulation which in turn helps with healthy moustache growth. Rich in vitamin K and vitamin E; coconut oil helps reduce dandruff and dryness, making the follicles more healthy. The lauric acid in coconut oil has strong antiviral and anti-fungal properties which target dandruff and other fungi, viruses and bacteria as well as insect bites. Coconut oil helps tame beard frizziness as it penetrates into the shaft and also helps reduce breakage. It acts as a natural sun screen protecting the moustache and skin from sun damage as well as adding moisture, shine and softness to moustaches.
- Shea Butter - this butter is an antioxidant. It helps prevent inflammation, is an excellent moisturiser, is good for the circulation, it strengthens, protects and regenerates the skin. It is a great moustache revitaliser. Shea butter relieves dry, dull, limp or damaged moustache hairs. It helps relieve skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, rashes, bites, cuts and burns. It is a fantastic anti-ageing product as it stimulates the production of collagen.
- Sweet Almond Oil is an excellent natural emollient and is renowned for its ability to soften and condition the skin. It is high in Vitamin D and proteins and so really nourishes the skin and beard. It soothes dry, irritated skin. It absorbs quickly into the skin. Sweet almond oil is not a nut oil but a seed oil. Almonds are related to the cherry, peach and plum families and although commonly called nuts are actually seeds (more specifically "drupes" or stone fruits).
GATO moustache wax currently comes unscented or with a cedarwood, peppermint or Citrus Burst scent.
This is a strong wax, with a waxy consistency that can be applied straight from the tin but it is much easier to apply if kept in a warm environment (e.g. in your pocket) before applying or melted down slightly using a hairdryer, and provides a good level of hold.
To apply scoop out an amount around half the size of your thumb nail, rub it between your thumbs and index fingers to smooth it out (or melt a bit using a hairdryer) and rub into the moustache stroking it to the sides on each side.
Take a little time in applying it. A quick blast from a hairdryer on a low heat will help it to set, making it a lot easier to apply.
A quick comb using a good quality comb such as a Kent moustache comb can be done after applying if desired.
As this product contains beeswax it is unsuitable for vegans.
Upon first use just use a very small amount on a section of the skin to ensure that you do not have any allergies to any of the ingredients.
