New ‘Buck Balm’ positioned as the first beard balm designed for hunters
PASADENA, Md. — Beard balm for deer hunters? Yep.
BeardBrothers, a U.S. army veteran-owned company based out of Pasadena, Md., has created Buck Balm, a new type of beard care product developed specifically for deer hunters.
According to the company, Buck Balm provides UV protection, attracts deer, covers the hunter's scent, can act as an insect repellent and is long lasting to keep the hunter’s facial hair from drying out.
Buck Balm's scent is strong enough for the deer to smell but not so strong that it would be overbearing, the company stated. As an added bonus, Buck Balm is a deterrent to insects and can also be used for bear and raccoon hunting.
Available at BeardBrothersLLC.com, the products are made in the United States with organic and all-natural ingredients.
The price? “Less than a tank of gas,” according to the company.
