My husband quickly fell in love with this beard oil and balm. He loves his beer & and a strong IPA is his favorite, so we purchased the Simcoe scent. Husband says it has the perfect hop scent with the right amount of "dankness" that only he can smell when he is wearing it. This beard oil and balm are definitely superior to others he has tried as this made his beard softer than I've ever felt it, even after just 1 use.

About

Beard Care an Other Goodies By & For the Craft Beer-Loving Bearded

Hi there. My name is Bob and I’m the guy behind all that you see here. If there are two things I'm passionate about it's my beard and craft beer. Really hoppy craft beer to be more precise. That's why I thought it was only natural for me to want to combine the two. But I'm getting ahead of myself. If you’d allow me, I’d love to share with you the story behind The Beerded Beard Company. Enjoying a craft beer while I tell my story while not mandatory may enhance the overall experience. I’ll wait here while you run to the fridge.

Ready? Great. It all started back in 2013…

I started making my own beard care products as a way to save money and, more importantly, because I just couldn't find any that I really enjoyed. If you’re not familiar with beard care, it’s basically products that guys use to take care of their beards, usually in the form of oils, balms and washes. Now I'm very picky about what I choose to put into my beard. For me, most of the beard care products I had tried just weren't quite right. Too greasy, too drying, too thick, too thin, too smelly, too expensive. None of them really did it for me. I knew that my only choice was to create my own. I started by laying out the qualities I wanted in my beard care products:

1. All-natural. Nothing artificial. Only plant-based ingredients and no preservatives or dyes.
2. They had to work (soften, strengthen, condition, control) without being heavy or greasy.
3. A fragrance that I wouldn't mind smelling all day. Ideally, something beer-related.
4. They had to take care of my skin just as well as they took care of my beard.

Using my experience as a bearded man, chemical engineer and a Certified Cicerone® I got to work. After nearly a year of development, hundreds of test batches, and several major formulation changes, I finally had it. My ideal beard care products – 100% all-natural, handmade, fragranced with real hops. From my home-base in Cleveland, Ohio I launched my Etsy shop in July of 2014 with a single product, Lesher's Beerd Balm® beard conditioner with the follow-up Lesher's Beerd Oil® brand beard oil not far behind.

All of my beard care products start with pure grape seed oil. Grape seed oil, a by-product of the wine industry, is made by crushing and pressing the seeds of grapes. It's an ideal hair moisturizer that doesn’t leave the hair feeling weighed down or greasy and its natural astringent characteristics make it great for balancing the moisture levels in skin. It's a light, penetrating conditioner loaded with antioxidants that softens and protects both the skin and hair. Now this is where everything changes.

Bring in the hops.

What sets the Beerded Beard Company apart from the beard care pack is, in a word, hops. I developed a process for infusing grape seed oil with the natural essential oils found in hops. You see, hops are loaded with volatile oils and aroma compounds and brewers use hops to bring bitterness, flavor and aroma to their beers. Through my unique extraction process these aroma compounds are infused into the grape seed oil making for a truly unique aroma that I find simply intoxicating. They also impart a pretty cool green color. And because every variety of hops has a distinct personality, I decided to offer several different hop varieties in my products. As of the writing of this little story I had five different hop varieties.

Fast forward to 2016 and my product portfolio has grown. Along with my beard care products, I now offer Lesher’s HopStache™ brand mustache wax and so the non-bearded set can enjoy some added hoppiness, Lesher’s HopSmacker™ brand lip balm and HopSoap™, all-natural hand poured bar soap with vitamin E, oatmeal and real hops in the bar. As you can see, my hoppy obsession knows no bounds. There’s no telling what product I’ll cram hops into next!

So that’s it. I make everything by hand in Cleveland in pretty small batches. Most of what I make is for guys with beards but I also make a few other things that can be used and enjoyed by the non-bearded. And it’s all about the hops.
And one more thing. Here at The Beerded Beard Company I am committed to maintaining a 100% cruelty free shop. That means I have never used animals to test any of my finished products and I have never used animals to test any of my ingredients. The only animal used to test my products is me.

Shipping
Your item(s) will be shipped within 1-3 business days unless otherwise noted. Should a delay in shipment be necessary I will let you know as soon as I am aware. Most orders received before noon EST will be shipped out the same day. Otherwise they will be shipped out the following day.

All items are shipped via USPS First Class Mail unless otherwise noted. Upgrades are available by request only.

I will be happy to ship directly to a giftee as well as include a personal note as requested. Please leave me this information in the note to seller at checkout.

SHIPPING TIMES:

While packages generally arrive MUCH SOONER I typically allow for 1-2 weeks for domestic delivery and 4-5 weeks for international shipments before resending/refunding for non-delivery. Thank you for your understanding. The postal service can be a sticky wicket.

If I receive your order before noon M-F I'll do my best to make sure it gets shipped out that same day. If I receive you order after noon M-F or during the weekend it will be shipped out the next available shipping day.

Please be aware that shipping around any major holiday can prove very unpredictable. Priority upgrades are recommended to insure faster delivery times.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

International buyers are responsible for any and all customs charges, taxes and international postage fees. These items can add up and can sometimes be more than the actual items purchased. You've been warned.
Refunds and Exchanges
The Beerded Beard Company does not accept any returns or exchanges and refunds are only given in instances where there is something physically wrong with the product or they are lost/damaged in shipment. Please make sure you really want to buy our products before you hit that button. Just to clarify, not liking how the products smell is not cause for a refund. Fragrance is subjective. This means not everyone perceives odors in exactly the same way. Hops are a pungent, funky little flower. If you don’t love the smell of hops, don’t order our products. All of our products leave our workshop in exactly the way nature, and our artisans intended. Should you attempt to claim they’re “bad” or “off” when you receive them you will lose the battle. All sales are final.

In the unlikely case that an item is lost or damaged during shipment we will work directly with you to make it right. After all, we don’t want you or your beard to go without the joy of The Beerded Beard Company’s products.
