ibeardclub manufacturers guild seals

Standard identifying marks

The below gives you a breakdown of what to look for and what they mean:

1.On the logo, you will see a unique 4 digit code issued for each company which is followed by the year for which they have been awarded their approval and recommendation.
2. The circle around Handsome jack has a black background and the awarded title of Product Master or Seal of Approval is in white.
3. Product Grandmaster - The circle around Handsome jack is in the original Dark Blue background with a red circle around the outer rim and the awarded title of Product Grandmaster is in white.
3. The 4 point elongated North, South, East, West has also been removed from the original iBeardClub Logo.

This gives you the end user the assurance that they have been vetted and offer the highest quality cosmetically certified products and customer service by the iBeardClub.

If your preferred beard product company displays  either the Product Master Seal, Product Grandmaster  Seal, or the Seal of Approval, you can rest assured that your beard care routine is in good hands.

All Product Masters/Grandmasters & Seal of Approval  Companies have Cosmetic licenses and Test certificates (CPSR & CPNP)  and are vetted by the iBeardClub Manufuacturers Guild for your peace of mind.

Like the iBeardClub , Product Masters/Grandmasters have the same ethos when it comes to engaging with their client base.

All products have been tried and tested by the iBeardClub team and it’s members, you also have the piece of mind that they are covered with all the relevant Certification & Safety tests.

Ultimately…. your beard will look good, smell great and feel awesome.

All product Masters/Grandmasters and Seal of Approval Companies are real people who are approachable, friendly and regularly engage with customers and iBeardClub members.

LEGAL REGULATION

What are the CPSR, CPNP & Labelling requirements

#iBeardClub CPSR Advisor

Geraldine Garrs

I am happy to be advising iBeardClub on regulation around cosmetic products.
I have been preparing CPSRs for over eight years and in my own company for the last five. I did a chemistry degree then worked for couple of pharmaceutical companies, helping to bring to market asthma inhalers first and then a variety of diabetes, cancer and heart disease medicines.

After parental leave, I started training in the safety assessment of cosmetic products, which led me to where I am today – helping small businesses get their products to market, legally and safely. I enjoy helping new starters with their fledgling businesses and spend a lot of time answering queries and questions.

When I am not working, I like to run (up to half marathon) and I am involved with supporting women and girls in various ways as a volunteer Soroptimist. I do not have a beard.

More information about CPSRs can be found at www.garrscosmeticsafety.co.uk. If you wish to explore getting CPSR(s) for your products, please contact Geraldine Garrs at info@garrscosmeticsafety.co.uk.

#what is...

CPSR Certification

CPSR stands for "Cosmetic Product Safety Report", this is a legal requirement for any cosmetic sold within the European Union. The EU Cosmetics Regulation defines a cosmetic as "any substance or preparation intended to be placed in contact with the various external parts of the human body (epidermis, hair system, nails, lips and external genital organs) or with the teeth and the mucous membranes of the oral cavity with a view exclusively or mainly to cleaning them, perfuming them, changing their appearance and/or correcting body odours and/or protecting them or keeping them in good condition."

The above definition categorises all beard and moustache products firmly in the cosmetics category and as such, all beard products must have a CPSR and comply with all other aspects of the Regulation.

#what is...

The CPNP Portal

The Cosmetics Products Notification Portal (CPNP) is an online notification system for submitting certain technical compliance related information about cosmetic products.
The Regulation states that the designated Responsible Person (or EU Brand Owner) is required to submit certain information about cosmetic products and their product specifications to the CPNP if they intend to make them available on the EU Market.

About Mariner Jack

FROM A CORNISH PUB TO A GLOBAL BRAND

Sheltering in the pub from the dark depths of a Cornish winter, the seed of Mariner Jack was planted in my brain.

I had the product, I’d been making it for years for myself and friends after all.
That’s a lot different to marketing it and selling it though, would people pay above average prices for a great quality product in a time of cheap and cheerful products available anywhere?
The short answer is yes, yes they would.
Initial batches of products completely sold out within two weeks, so I went from full time to part time work to keep up.
It still kept selling so I went full time on this wild adventure.

About Bangin' Beards

Bangin' Beards is a Glasgow based company providing high quality, natural, handcrafted beard products.

In 2014, Thomas began experimenting with different natural ingredients in his search for the perfect beard oil and balm. Fast forward a few years, and he has now perfected a full range of products tailored for both the skin and beard.

Products are all handmade with high quality, natural ingredients and are prefect for those with sensitive skin. Say goodbye to that itchy beard druff and scraggy beard, and hello to a soft, healthy face of hair!

Our products are NEVER tested on animals, however they are thoroughly tested on fellow bearded men!
"Having a bit of a curly beard, I always struggled to find the right product for my beard. Finding a scent I really liked for both oils and balms was a challenge, but above all, I simply couldn't find a product that felt right once applied.

The oils I tried were too oily and didn't do much for me. When it came to the balm, I could never find one able to maintain a strong hold throughout the day, whilst also keeping my beard soft"

"I'M A BIT OF A WOODWORKING GEEK..."

I’m Ben, a Lancashire lad from sunny Blackpool in the UK. I’m a bit of a woodworking geek with a real passion for the beauty of wood in all its forms. I started making combs for my beard club (Sandgrown Beardsman) back in 2015 for our chairty raffle, since then they have grown popular amongst the bearded community.
This is a hobby and my passion and the demand for my combs has really grown. I have also recently been bonified as an official supplier for the iBeard Club and supply several other Beard grooming companies. I decided to setup a website as its not just beard combs that I apply my woodworking wizardy to! I also make Chopping Boards, Wine Bottle Racks, Wooden Chests and really anything that uses wood as a medium.
So please feel free to get in touch if there is anything that takes your fancy or if you would like making, and I will see if its possible
Regards Ben
