My name is Joe Schmuecker and I’m the creator of Schmuck’d Up Beard Balm. My wife and I are both Emergency Department nurses and We have two beautiful little girls.
In our department we are required to wear black scrubs. I was constantly having to lint roll my chest because of all of the beardruff that would collect. I started using oils and balms which helped resolve most of the issue. If you have ever bought balm or beard oil you know its pricey. I would spend $30-$40 on products. I did some research and created my own formula and decided to go all natural as most of the good stuff is refined in commercial products. I created my first batch for myself and let a couple of my friends try it out. Next thing I know I sold over 200 tins in a month and have had awesome feed back. And now, here we are!
When I say small batch beard balm I literally mean small batch. I make 4 oz. at a time which equals 2 tins. I do this to keep the consistency of the mixture for each tin. No two tins are the same but I still try to keep them as close as possible.
