It was on this motto that I founded Splendid Bastard Beard Supply in late 2014, with the goal to create a line of all-natural men’s beard grooming products. After several months of research, experimentation, trial-and-error, and extensive testing of the products on myself and friends, I was able to create winning formulas for my products. These products include beard oil, beard balm, mustache wax and hair pomade, all made from simple and natural ingredients ethically-sourced from local Canadian suppliers.
I began by selling my products at local Christmas markets and the Downtown Penticton Community market. The response to my brand and product line has been phenomenal!
Over the past 2 years, Splendid Bastard has expanded its reach by selling products online, with customers across Canada, Europe, and Australia. Currently, Splendid Bastard products are also being carried by several retailers in BC and Alberta. I’m working to expand the brand across Canada in 2018, and to create a strong and loyal consumer base. As evidence of my goal of providing excellent products and customer service, in October of 2017 Splendid Bastard received the award for “Best Home-Based Business” at the Penticton & Wine Country Chamber of Commerce’s Business Excellence Awards.
