In late 2014, I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease after months of pain, discomfort and countless doctor appointments. Throughout all of this, I became far too exhausted to bother shaving and grew out my first beard. When the diagnosis finally came through and I began my road to recovery, I shaved my beard clean off to signify change. What a mistake that was.
From that moment on, I vowed to never sport the baby face look again and once again started my beard journey.
Somewhere along that journey, I realized my beard was a tangled, dry mess and I was failing to take care of it. I had never used oils at this point but had heard of them and read of their benefits. After trying a few of the options available, I realized that I could create a more efficient and effective product. Months and months of researching and testing oils and scent properties led me to what I believe is the perfect combination.
Make no mistake- while I constantly refer to Genesee Beard Co. in the plural form, this is a one man operation. From product testing and development, bottling, shipping, marketing, web design, customer/vendor relations and all other aspects of running a business, I do it all and I absolutely love it.
This isn't my attempt to get rich, this is a passion and labor of love. Tame the mane.
Our products have not and will not ever be tested on animals.
All beard oil is 100% natural and mixed and bottled by hand in Rochester, NY.
