Beard Butter VS Beard Balm

The common question we get asked is what is the difference from Beard Butter and Beard Balm. Before we compare the two products, lets explain what each one is.
TLDR: Beard Butter is a product which offers super hydration and very little hold. Great to use at night time, or dont need any hold or have a super dry skin/beard.
Beard Butter has a creamy/whipped consistency
Beard Balm is a popular product, this will offer hydration to the beard and skin while be able to give shape and hold to the beard.
