The tale of one bearded man
…And a hatred for bad beard products
THE MISSION BEARD STORY
The year was 2018.
And Summer was kicking into full swing.
The sun was shining.
Beer gardens were bustling.
But somewhere on the South Coast of England, something was wrong.
Alex, bearded hipster and budding writer had a problem.
It was dry. It was itchy. And it was following him everywhere he went.
It was his beard.
And he’d tried everything to give it the lease of life he needed.
But between overpriced oils with few results to back up their price tags and mass-produced brands too cheap to make a difference, Alex still faced the same struggle.
He knew something had to be done. And he set about doing it.
So he hired a chemist.
And a perfumer.
And he tasked them with crafting the best beard oils the world had ever seen.
Little did Alex know it, but something big had just happened…
Mission Beard had just been born.
3 years on, and Mission Beard produces a range of renowned, all-natural beard care products, used by thousands of men across the UK.
And it’s been one hell of a ride.
Here’s the journey we’ve been on so far:
June 2018 – Alex samples the first MB oil.
It leaves his beard fully hydrated, nourishes his skin – and smells INCREDIBLE.
He calls it Underdog.
July 2018 – Underdog gets company
Looking to add some choice for the beardsmen of the world, Mission Beard develops two new fragrances:
- True North, a fresh spin on the traditional woodsy scent
- El Presidente, a zesty, punchy citrus fragrance, with undertones of masculine cedarwood.
August 2018 – testing, testing…
Full steam ahead. Alex and the Mission Beard Crew fire oils off to a lab for full cosmetics testing.
Hundreds of brands skip this step, but MB’s customers deserve the best, so we weren’t about to be one of them.
November 2018 – passes all around.
Our oils pass with flying colours.
And our production team get to work on getting our first ever batch of oil ready for sale.
