Beard du Sud was founded early in 2014 by Craig Venter. During his quest of researching and testing natural methods and recipes for his personal beard care, he developed a passion for it and decided to turn his passion into a business. For several months, Craig experienced with different blends and scents of beard oils and later on conducted a short study on various different men where the scents, characteristics and use of beard oils were tested. The beard oils proved to enhance moisture and healthy growth, nourished the hair and skin and left beards with a long-lasting fresh smell.

Beard du Sud’s first three beard oil blends, namely: The Huntsman, The Gentleman and The Explorer, hit shelves during the second term of 2014. All three these beard oils carry properties which don’t only improve moisture, growth and nourishment as was found in the study, but also acts as a natural anti-bacterial which reduces ingrown hair, itchy skin and dandruff, improves acne and other skin conditions such as oily skin – A perfect mixture which aids in protecting beards against the harsh Southern African climate.

In late 2014, Beard du Sud introduced a moustache wax and beard balm to the collection and plans for additional products and beard grooming gear are also well on their way.

Beard du Sud uses only the finest quality, 100% natural oils and ingredients in all the beard care products and focuses on gentlemen who take pride in their manes. All products are available online and at selected barber shops and salons throughout South Africa.
