The Brighton Beard Company, founded in 2013, was born out of the need to create a distinctive beard care range that championed both style and nourishment for the urban beardsman. Established, designed and manufactured in Brighton, the brand is all about capturing the style and spirit of the bearded lifestyle.
Started by couple Lloyd and Jessica, and inspired by their surroundings of the scenic South Coast of England, the duo looked to the beards of the sea as their muse. Each product is handmade in small batches with 100% natural ingredients, and everything is carefully chosen for their beard benefits and impeccable fragrance. By creating quality, hand crafted products, The Brighton Beard Co. provides beard care to nurture your facial fur.
Their goal? To make your beard the best it can be.
The history of the brand began when co-founder Lloyd had grown a beard and realised he needed to find a product or two to tame it, before his boss’ “shave it” taunts got the better of him. After searching and trying to find something that would work, Lloyd found that no products on the market really grabbed his attention or caught his eye. That’s where his partner, Jessica, stepped in. She’d been struggling to find employment and what she really wanted to do was to put her time and energy into something that was both creative and productive. So, together the idea came about for The Brighton Beard Company; and the rest as they say, is history. And Jessica and Lloyd lived happily ever after, with no need for Lloyd to succumb to his boss. Needless to say, the beard stayed.
Each product of theirs is named after local and lawless smugglers, moonshiners and best loved villains from around the East Sussex area. From Creampot Tom to Jevington Jigg, each of them have their own anecdote based on true stories, consisting of mischief and misfortune, injecting real personality and character into everything The Brighton Beard Company makes.
Here are some of our favourite products:
Creampot Tom’s Mandarin and Cedarwood Beard Balm
This leave-in conditioning treatment works hard to nourish, repair and tame the beard, while still providing a light hold. The balm conditions the beard and helps to repair and prevent split ends. It’s a tin full of goodness, and the smell is incredible.
Jevington Jigg’s Mandarin & Cedarwood Extra Firm Moustache Wax
This extra firm moustache wax, handmade in small batches, provides a hold that promises to tame even the most unruly of beards and moustaches. Although the wax is strong, it’s also re-workable, perfect for creating strong shapes and styles.
Old Joll’s Jasmin & Lemon Beard Oil
This handmade oil is made with a blend of the very finest oils, including jojoba oil, vitamin E and essential oils Jasmin & Lemon. It’s the ideal product to treat, soften and nourish facial hair, and the skin beneath.
A brand with a lovely, pure story, much like their products, Lloyd and Jessica worked hard to create range of honest, simple and good quality grooming products. With everything from beard oils, balms and moustache waxes to combs and wash bags, each and every product is made with pure, wholesome ingredients. Each purchase comes from a hand crafted, small batch by the small and dedicated Brighton Beard Company team.
