What makes a man intriguing? It’s a delicate balance of a few things—a quality of character that is not entirely understood and at the same time not completely unfamiliar. He is confident but never brash, concise in speech but not terse, and precise with his actions but not meticulous. The same could be said for a great men’s fragrance.
Like its namesake, the fragrance of Palmetto is both warm and welcoming while carrying an air of mystery. The clean and citrusy top notes give way to pink pepper spice and magnolia flower, complemented with lingering notes of incense and cedar. This intricate fragrance is ideal as a Spring and Summer scent, but with its approachable complexity, it may just become your new year-round signature cologne.

So, what’s with the name? We’re glad you asked. Our Beard Oil is great for more than just your beard. In fact, it is also a fantastic pre-shave oil, a scalp moisturizer, a low-hold hair styling product, and a dry skin treatment. Count them up, and you have a formula with five great uses. That’s how Formula 5 got its name.

Beard: One of the great paradoxes of men’s grooming lies in taking care of your beard. If you do a great job grooming it, no one will notice your work. That’s why we created Formula 5 Oil to make all of your beard grooming efforts look, well…effortless.
For us, that meant creating a beard oil that somehow wasn’t “oily.” Our blend of natural plant extracts and high-performance ingredients moisturizes and smooths each hair down to the follicle while helping to soothe your face underneath without feeling greasy or heavy.
Pre-shave Oil: If you have sensitive skin, a good oil can make shaving all the easier by softening both your skin and your scruff. Additionally, the oil provides even more lubrication for your razor than using shave cream alone. The result is a smoother shave with less irritation. Formula 5 spreads on evenly, smells great, and leaves your face feeling healthy and hydrated post-shave.
Scalp moisturizer: As a culture, we often tend to clean ourselves more than is good for us. The result is often (among other things) a dry, itchy scalp resulting from removing too much of the natural oil from the surface of your skin. Our Formula 5 Oil helps replenish your healthy oils and protects against cold and dry weather that can also lead to scalp irritation. Because of its unique formula, it nourishes and soothes your scalp without leaving you with a greasy look.
Dry Skin Treatment: When your skin is seriously dry, put down the lotion, which is formulated for keeping healthy skin moisturized, and reach for something stronger. Formula Five penetrates deep into the layers of the skin, helping to lock in moisture and keep other not-so-good elements out, such as dirt and pollution. Remember, just a little bit goes a long way, so start with a pea-sized amount of oil to help soothe and restore any problem dry spots.
Lightweight Hair Styling: Looking for a natural look? A few drops of Formula Five spread evenly through towel-dry hair will knock out fly-aways and help give your hair some direction without the heavy hold that comes with most men’s products. Whether you have a crewcut, a massive mane, or something in between, odds are your hair could benefit from a few drops of Formula 5. If you typically use a product with high hold but want a more natural look, consider starting with a few drops of Formula Five, in towel dry hair and then finishing with half of whatever styling product you would normally use. If you normally skip product altogether, see what a difference a few drops of Formula Five can do to improve your look.
This oil does it all! When I get out of the shower I put it on my head, face, goatee and arms. It smells fantastic and is not too strong! A must buy! Can’t wait until Perpetua comes out!
Purchased as a preshave oil and it’s as described.
Excellent product. I use the Palmetto solid cologne so was interested to try the Formula 5 oil. It did not disappoint! Great scent and works well in my beard.
Love this beard oil. Best product I've purchased from Fulton & Roark so far. Will definitely buy again.
just received my first order of beard oil. leaves the beard feeling soft to the touch and the scent is quite nice when stuck in a mask all day.
