This STORY is about BEARDS. it’s my STORY.
With professional training in the area of hair and beard since 1987 my passion for beards started in early 2010 when I chose to have a new look. This passion has been my focus of research and discovering why there are more and more men with beards around the world.
In 2017 after I lost my job and had to decide what to do with almost 50 years old and knowing that it would not be so easy to get a job. I started thinking about a professional solution for my life. I remembered the project that was in the drawer which was to produce a line of Beard products. I talked with some people, researched the market for beard products, researched products, talked to barber shops, did a cost survey and ran into a tremendous difficulty that was the investment. In an informal conversation with a friend in a bar here in Lisbon I told him about the project and the difficulties, and to my surprise he became interested and we started the project OS BÁRBAROS BEARD CO.
April 2017 started the first phase of the brand, with 03 Beard oils and 01 Beard shampoo. As every beginning is difficult, we end up going through difficulties and finally overcoming some of them.
January 2018, my investing partner asks to leave the company for personal reasons with his family and I had to decide whether to continue or not. But my desire to continue was greater and so I spent a period researching new formulas.
Finally in December 2018 I have a complete product line, including accessories and a new website.
2020, a world crisis arises in which the whole world is living, and once again I find myself in a situation that would have to decide whether or not to stop, so I decided to tell a little about my story, my passion for beard care, and to tell with the support of all of you bearded. I need to continue to produce, develop more products and, above all, I need to survive on my work.
Os Bárbaros Beard Co is a brand of beard products created by a barber and produced by hand using organic and natural products.
