The Difference Between Fur Oil & Ingrown Concentrate

Posted by: Sara Jane Emmons

Fur Oil and Ingrown Concentrate are Fur’s signature oils—and while they’re our most popular products, there’s a lot of misconception around the two. Want to get to know our holy grail duo a little more? We’ve rounded up every question our community has thrown our way and answered them below:

The original product from Fur, Fur Oil is a blend of dry-touch oils that softens hair and skin, and reduces the appearance of ingrowns over time. Jojoba and grapeseed oil hydrate the skin, while clary sage and tea tree oil soothe inflammation and clarify pores, which reduce ingrowns over time. Despite being an oil, Fur Oil’s formula is incredibly lightweight, and its blend of dry-touch oils means it absorbs into your skin quickly without leaving a greasy residue.

Apply a few drops of Fur Oil on any hair you want to soften and any skin you want to smooth and soothe. It’s quick-drying, so you don’t need to wait around before putting clothes on.

Fur Oil is incredibly multi-purpose, so while it’s great on pubic hair and skin, feel free to use it from head to toe! Fur Oil can do it all—try it as a cuticle softener, a cracked hands repairer, split end sealer, scalp conditioner, and a bath oil. For best results, we recommend using it as part of your every day ritual.

Ingrown Concentrate is a smoothing spot solution that gently banishes bumps and redness. Paired with its exfoliating finger mitt, it soothes irritation and eradicates ingrowns, resulting in clear, smooth pores for even the most sensitive skin. Its formula is slightly thicker than that of Fur Oil’s, due to coconut oil and tamanu nut, which helps soften ingrown hairs so they can easily slide out of the skin. Despite the thicker formula, it is non-comedogenic, meaning it will hydrate your pores without clogging them.

Apply a few drops of Ingrown Concentrate onto any bumps or ingrowns, and gently rub it in to allow the skin to absorb it. If you’re a super sensitive skin type, you can also apply it onto areas you know are prone to ingrowns.

The finger mitt comes with every purchase of Ingrown Concentrate, and can be found alongside Ingrown Concentrate in its box. One side of the mitt is softer, for a gentler buff, and the other side is rougher, for a deeper exfoliation. Exfoliation is crucial to ingrown prevention because it removes excess sebum and dirt that’s clogging your pores and trapping the hair underneath the surface.

Use the finger mitt to exfoliate 3-5 times a week in the shower anywhere that feels rough to the touch. Use the Ingrown Concentrate on towel-dried skin to treat spots that have already cropped up, or if you’re a super sensitive skin type and prone to bumps, daily use may be best as a preventative measure.

Fur Oil and Ingrown Concentrate pair fantastically together, whether you’d like to use them on different areas or layer them on top of one another. Think of Fur Oil as your moisturizer, and Ingrown Concentrate as your zit cream. Fur Oil is meant to be applied on larger areas, like your bikini line, armpits, and legs, while Ingrown Concentrate is best applied to smaller, concentrated areas, or on bumps and ingrowns that already exist. Apply Fur Oil first, then layer Ingrown Concentrate on top of any bumps, or on sensitive areas for extra protection. Because they’re both non-comedogenic, you don’t have to worry about them clogging up your pores or making your skin feel too oily—they dry quickly and nourish your skin from the inside out.
