Our Story Starts Here
The Birth of Buccaneer Grooming
I've always felt like I'm a bit of a lucky guy. I have an amazing family and come from a very humble and supportive family. In stumbling across Buccaneer Grooming, I felt pretty lucky. Lucky in the way that I could do something I'm passionate about and genuinely try to make a difference.
A mate and I were sharing a beer. My mate was at a very similar place to me in his beard growing journey. We were chatting about beer, sport and of course, beards. He asked me if I'd tried beard oil. I must've had the most perplexed look on my face as at this point in time I had no idea what beard oil was.
After trying some, I immediately loved the concept. I could see it's potential as a product as it was really helpful in moisturising the skin (I have very dry skin), keeping the beard smelling good and keeping it healthy and growing. But what I didn't like was the lack of quality Australian companies offering it at an affordable price and at a high quality. Many people selling beard oil had very obviously setup shop from home, mixed a few oils together and were in it to make a quick buck. They weren't in it to empower men to be confident in themselves.
On the back of this research and a lot more, I bought nearly every beard oil, moustache wax and beard product from around the world to try out. Some were good, but most were average. So I decided to do something about it.
I teamed up with a boutique cosmetic manufacturer in Brisbane, Australia. They had a lot of experience in creating organic and natural cosmetic products and I was confident that they'd be the right partner to work with in developing my own products. After multiple samples and a lot of back and forth, we were ready to launch our first two products - 'The Buc' beard oil and moustache wax with our famous scent of lemongrass, sandalwood and peppermint.
Our Product Ethos
At Buccaneer Grooming, we take pride in what we do. This stems from the products we make, the products we stock from other companies, the content we provide and the service we provide you, our customer.
We've literally sailed the seven seas to find the best products and ingredients on the market and they're tested by real blokes who not only have beards, but believe in being yourself.
All of our products are designed to help you be confident enough to walk the plank and dive head first.
Our beard oil and moustache wax range is made from all natural and organic ingredients in absurdly small batches and have a really invigorating scent. Our beard combs and brushes are made by Kent Combs in the UK who have been around since the 1800's. On top of this, our beard scissors come from DOVO in Sollingen, Germany. DOVO used to make medieval swords, so they certainly know a thing or two about crafting metals into the best darn beard scissors you can buy.
We back our products, because we've used them, time and time again. We know what quality feels like. We know that this feeling empowers confidence and will help our customers be who they want to be.
We're tired of men with beards having to deal with the societal pressures of conformity. At the end of the day, to grow a beard is a man's choice. It shouldn't be left to our partner, our boss, or our families to decide. We should be empowered to be ourselves no matter what.
We want to provide great quality products that empower men to be who they want to be. Through this, we want to educate beardsmen on how to look after their beards so we can remove the stigma that 'beards are dirty' or 'beards are for homeless people'. We know that through education and good grooming, we can change the world's perception of beards, one beard at a time.
Join us and sail free from the storm of shabby, towards beardtopia and come drink warm rum with the Buccaneers.
Because there isn’t much left.
