Quintessential Beard has been set up by husband and wife team Sarah and Kerry Burrows to offer high quality beard care products.

They are also set to launch a website aimed at pogonophiles – beard lovers – everywhere, with a unique selling point being their focus on using suppliers from North Herts as much as they can.

Kerry explained: “It’s important to us we know where all of our ingredients come from and so we source as many of them from local suppliers.

“The lavender essential oil used in our ‘Britannia’ aroma comes from the fantastic Hitchin Lavender.

“The beeswax we source from Knebworth-based Hertfordshire Honey Bee Supplies. The other 26 essential oils in up our four aromas are all sourced from Hitchin’s Health Emporium.

“My wife Sarah and I have worked so hard so get our brand up and running and we’re really excited about our launch.

“We’re also gearing up for sponsoring Hitchin’s inaugural beard and moustache championship to be held at the Half Moon Pub from 4pm on Saturday, May 16.
