Cincy Chic: What is P. Bunyan Beard Oil?
Adam Minard, Founder of P. Bunyan Beard Oil: P. Bunyan Beard Oil is a beard oil that contains just four ingredients or less of 100% oils.
Cincy Chic: What’s the inspiration behind your beard oil business?
Minard: I’ve had a beard for almost 15 years now and a little over a year ago I decided to take care of properly, since it’s the only hair left on my head. After seeing how expensive beard oils can get while shopping online, and not knowing if I’d like the scent, I decided to buy the necessary products to make my own. After the concoction was created, and being a graphic designer, I couldn’t let the 1 oz. bottle sit in my medicine cabinet nude, so I created a label and wrapped it for fun. Once my wife (my biggest fan) saw it, she took a picture of it – and you’ll never believe it but that picture then got posted to Facebook. As you can imagine shortly after, a handful of responses followed wanting to know where you buy it. You’ve heard the phrase, “it literally happened overnight.” Well, it happened to me and I’m thrilled I can help those men out there who are enjoying it everyday like I am.
Cincy Chic: Who’s behind the business?
Minard: I’m a one-man band. It’s created, handcrafted, designed, packaged and shipped from my man cave in Finneytown.
Cincy Chic: What types of items do you carry in the P. Bunyan line?
Minard: Currently there are four scents: Nog Cabin, Smells Just Pine, Ginger Baker and Message In A Bottle – which is the Valentine’s Day seasonal that smells like those candy hearts.
Cincy Chic: Can you give us price points for your product?
Minard: 1 oz. bottles are $20 and .5 oz. bottles are $10. The half ounce bottles are great for those who want to try it out without fully committing to it or hurting their receipt-filled wallets.
Cincy Chic: What makes P. Bunyan Beard Oil a good Valentine’s Day gift?
Minard: Message In A Bottle smells just like those candy hearts you crush like M&Ms during the month of February. It’s a great addition to that special occasion and it pairs well with Mr. Marvin Gaye spinning on the turntable.
Cincy Chic: Is there anything new on the horizon for the business?
Minard: I have a beard brush in the works as well as a beard balm, which is used to shape your beard for those who like to let ‘em grow.
