"THE PINCH OF SALT" 

Although I can safely say not one of the future Bohémien Bangs products will include an actual pinch of salt, it was a term I hung onto after reading it in a business book I purchased shortly after the “Grand Pomade Idea” back in 2016. 

Veer away from the norm, take the risk, add that extra pinch of salt.. See if it pays. 

From humble BEEginings
From humble BEEginings

It has now been over a year since the initial thought of creating a product(s) not yet seen here in Australia. That being of course, a simple small batch home brew pomade of epic proportionz. We've seen home brew pomade explode in the United States while we Aussies lag (as usual). Whilst things have only slowly progressed, we can sense an exciting momentum shift here in the 'land of the groomed' and you will soon be able to reap the benefits of some sustainable gear to enhance those well and proper side-swept bangs and sensational pomps! 

Keeping with the leading new wave beatnik theme, Bohémien Bangs will also be working hard on perfecting an aftercare balm to replenish the skin’s moisture levels post tattoo! 

What's the goal, y'all?

Our overall aim is to brew sustainable hair and skin care products from locally sourced ingredients that will truly nourish and provide beneficial, yet stylish and visibly rewarding results for both men and women. While there is scope to branch out with customised groomsmen hampers, clothing and apparel, our immediate direction will take shape in the form of these simple, yet bryll products. 

To sustain our high quality products from the outset, we will be utilising ingredients such as;

  • Hemp seed oil
  • Avocado oil
  • Vitamin E
  • Locally sourced emulsifiers & bees-wax (because bees are legends wherever they reside)
  • Other well & proper stuffs - aligning with our eco approach to bohemian cosmetics
Only Organic, Only the Slickest of Pomades

Mr. Bangs, if I pledge cash monies, where will it be used?

Pledged funds raised from the project will be directly re-invested into the future of the business. Helping to establish a sanitised work environment with quality utensils and recyclable containers, costs associated with branding and ensuring products will remain within the eco commercial mind set we strive for. 

That is it from us for now.. We endeavour to improve and update the kickstarter project through its duration and keep backers in the loop at every step. We are excited to launch the very best pomade brought to you by a quirky dad with a dream for an eco-friendly bohémien future!

Risks and challenges

Obviously, setting up a small business aiming to continually look and feel our greatest while remaining solely eco-friendly comes with challenges.. There's timing, creditability, cost and commitment. (AVOIDING THE SMALL BUSINESS CALAMITIES)

Establishing a minimum viable product and identifying whether it's a want or need for our customers will help shape marketing pathways and will be a formidable tool early on the in project.

Mr. Bangs, is there even a niche market for such products?

We believe yes.

Are we passionate enough to become niche market leaders? We believe so, with your help - of course.

We have the passion, now we need to create the perfect few initial products for you all to enjoy. So help us get off the ground and support the next wave of premium Aussie home-brew pomades, apothecary and skin care!

Reusability and recyclability

All containers can be re-used. I mean people use them as pots for plants, frisbees and the occasional jar will end up in your binoculars. There is scope for timber containers down the track, however being a cosmetic product, there will always bee (get it) the need for a sealant of some sort.

Sustainable materials

All ingredients used in our products are of highest quality, sourced locally first and from Australia only. Certified organic oils, butters and powders are a must and will be traceable back to production. All non-emulsifying waxes (including beeswax, soy and candelilla) used are 100% raw & unadulterated, free from added impurities.
