My name is Kevin Leboeuf, born in Montreal Quebec. I’m 30 years old, and I enrolled in the CAF at 18. I deployed to Afghanistan (roto 3-08 with EROC with 4esr). I was a combat engineer. I have been working on Educated Beards for almost a year now. After being diagnosed with PTSD, my life style became more organic, I ground with yoga and meditation. This is the reason educated beards started.
The name Educated Beards came from the amount of research that was put behind every ingredient. I had huge help from my wife who is a Yoga instructor and a Holistic Nutritionist. She was very worried about the “crap” I was applying to my beard and skin. After doing some research she was right, most of the products on the market weren’t good for me. So with her background knowledge of all natural products and ingredients and a lot of research we were able to come up with some pretty neat concoctions, tested products on myself for months before knowing what was best. Every essential oil does a specific thing, sometimes the benefit from one will be canceled out due to not being compatible with another. So Educated Beards is a perfectly fitted name based on the knowledge and research that went into making the products the way they are.
It all began with making products for myself, trial and error for months before finding what the perfect formula was best. When friends asked if they could have some I told them I would make some for them, then their friends asked what products they were using and wanted some for them too. So I decided it was time to make a brand. So Educated Beards began, the same high quality premium product for others that was originally made for myself.
Based out of Fredericton, NB. Our goal is to provide high-end 100% natural beard grooming products to the local area. Having had lots of demands and outstanding feedback we decided it was time to expand.
