About Us

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.
