Known for a carefully curated, all-natural range of products and a commitment to never using harmful chemicals nor conducting animal testing, Zeus Beard has quickly become popular with beard enthusiasts since its debut in 2014. Growing a beard can be itchy and downright uncomfortable, so Zeus products aim to make managing your beard simple and enjoyable. We love how they respect grooming as a craft and keep their ingredients list simple – it’s grooming as nature intended.
Read on for our exclusive interview with Zeus Beard, including the answer the often-asked question of how the company got its unique name!
Where are you located?
We are located in Newport Beach, CA.
When and why did you start this business?
We launched Zeus Beard last year to help the bearded gentleman. We had heard a lot of complaints about the difficulties of growing and maintaining a beard. So we decided to come up with a solution.
How did you come up with the name of your company?
We wanted our beard brand to replicate a strong man in everything he does, from growing his beard to how he makes a living to being the leader of his family. The complaints we heard from beard growers helped us understand that growing a beard is a full commitment. You have to be beard strong – stick it out through the itchy pain of growing a beard.
We found it interesting that many men in powerful positions have beards, such as Abraham Lincoln, Hercules, and of course, the Greek god Zeus. This is how we came up with the name Zeus!
What differentiates Zeus from other beard grooming companies?
Zeus is geared towards a whole different target market. The Zeus man is a strong, independent individual who enjoys the active lifestyle. He embraces his manhood and the common interests he shares with other men, especially his bearded brothers. In addition to all things bearded, he participates in outdoor activities (surfing, camping, and hiking) and sports. He is a purveyor of current events, artisanal craftsmanship, finely crafted cars, vintage motorcycles, good food, and good spirits. He is a passionate lover of life and living.
What do you believe makes a quality product?
When it comes to developing a product, we believe in listening to our customers first. They are the ones using the product, so we are always attentive to their needs and concerns. We also believe in extensive research and development to make sure the final product performs to our standards.
What advice do you have for aspiring entrepreneurs?
When you have a dream, sit on it for a while; chew on it, and then go for it. You can do anything you put your mind to. You are the only person who limits what you can do in this life.
