About us

Founders story

In July 2018, Dan and Jake started talking about the Beard Care products. We both agreed about how all the products have same smelling boring fragrances and the packaging all look very similar. We wanted to change that.

We questioned "Why didnt any company use better looking bottles?"

They are many great looking mens cologne bottles which looked unique, even if it was empty.  We kept the bottle. Then, we said "why dont we create our own Beard Care products with cool packaging with great scents?" That is what we did.

Dan was a business graduate from Plymouth University, he put together the  business plan and starting developing the website. Jake was a illustration graduate from Plymouth College of Art, He started drawing mock-ups of the Logo and researching packaging types.

While researching for the business plan, Dan realised we needed to create the beard products ourselves. This way we can always listen to feedback from our customers about what they like/dislike. Then, we can find ways to improve it. 

The first product we found was the Cool Glass Beard Oil Skulls. We knew that we had never seen these in the beard care industry. It would help stand out as a company. Dan had researched for months about creating a perfect blend carrier oils while finding great and unique fragrance to go with these. As all we could find on the market was just a woody/earth scents, we went a different angle. We decided that needed a range of scents for everyone. These include fruit, sweet and masculine scents. We today have a range of 8 scents. Including Bubblegum, sweet rum and many more. 

September 2018 - Our different range of skulls. We spray painted them ourselves in Gold, Matte Black, Silver and White.

Beverley Finnigan - (Dan`s mum)

Bev has helped Dan so much since 2019, as Beard and Bones has grown. It would be an impossible job without her. The work she does from labelling tins, putting together the oil tags with the string and the Beard Oil skulls in the bag for Dan to fill up.  Plus getting orders picked and packed on certain days. They are extremely time consuming and without her, this business would not be able cope. 

All 5 people together have built this business but we all can't take credit, everyone, that has interacted with us - our brand ambassadors who help us promote our brand on their social media pages and give us feedback about future fragrances. A massive thank you must go to them. 

Since 2019 - A lot has changed, we have grown a lot. We have expanded our Product Range to not only Beard Care products but expanded into jewellery with high quality gothic themed products such as bracelets, Necklaces and Rings.

We have still keep with the original plan of creating new colour skulls: Since then we have released 5 more colours: Orange, Red, Sapphire, Green and Purple - Bringing the making a total of 10 Different colour skulls used over the past 3 years. This bottles are released with limited edition scents every year.
