Ingredients

Beard butters need to contain three main ingredients. Butter, Wax and Oil.
Optionally they can contain vitamins but most don’t. Anything else is superfluous and unnecessary.

Make sure to avoid any chemicals and “Fragrances,” which are compounds that combine to vaporize into the air. They are also the number one cause of allergic reactions to cosmetics.

So what’s in each Beard Butter?

Butter

Wild Willies and Every Man Jack both use Shea butter which is typical and appropriate for a beard butter.

Wax

Wild Willies uses Beeswax, a great natural moisturizer with anti-bacterial properties that helps bind the butter together.

Every Man Jack on the other hand does not use a natural wax. Instead they rely on Cetyl Alcohol and Stearyl Alcohol to thicken and emulsify their mixture. The result is a waxy substance that some cosmetic companies like to use to help mix oils and waters.

Oil

Wild Willies uses a gaggle (yep that’s right a gaggle) of oils. Apart from the wax, butter and vitamin E, everything else is a natural oil designed to moisturize, and help promote skin and beard health.

Every Man Jack only includes coconut oil and sandalwood essential oil, which isn’t a beneficial oil, rather it contributes to the fragrance of the product.

Chemicals and Fragrances

Wild Willies contains exactly ZERO Chemicals and Fragrances.

Every Man Jack Beard Butter contains a total of 22 ingredients. 16 of those are not natural. Of those 5 make the “Icky” list, stuff that’s really not good for you according to the ingredient decoder INCIDecoder.

Winner: Wild Willies - Made with naturally derived ingredients and Every Man Jack contains fragrances and chemicals.

Variety And Scents

Wild Willies

Every Man Jack

  • Original Beard Butter (Woodsy)

  • Cool Mint Beard Butter (Eucalyptus & Mint)

  • Sandalwood (Woodsy/Vanilla)

  • Natural Hemp (Clary Sage/Bergamot)

  • Sea Salt (Sea Minerals/Citron)

Every Man Jack had one more scent than Wild Willies, but all of its Fragrances are all synthetic. While Wild Willies only has 2 offerings, they’re both natural.

Wild Willies Original Beard Butter has a manly, woodsy scent. And a Cool Mint beard butter smells fresh and well, minty. The scents are derived from natural essential oils that are made to last all day without being too overpowering.

Every Man Jack Beard Butter has 3 scents that are similar in style to Wild Willies. However, they’re chemically produced so they have a bit of a synthetic smell to them.

Winner: Wild Willies
Wild Willies - Has 2 scents from essential oils.

Every Man Jack - Has 3 scents from synthetic fragrances.

Price

Wild Willies Beard Butter is $4.93 per ounce, which is reflective of the natural, high-quality ingredients used.

Every Man Jack Beard Butter is a little cheaper than Wild Willies at only $3 per ounce.

In isolation they win on price. However, if you take into account the type of ingredients used, you might find it worth ponying up an extra 2 bucks for the more natural stuff.
