Headshot of Kevin Leboeuf

Kevin Leboeuf, born in Montreal, Quebec joined the military at 18 and was deployed in Afghanistan at the age of 19 with TF 3-08 as a EROC operator (clearing roads and high-threat areas – searching for bombs) Kevin’s military carrier was slowed down due to being involved in an IED strike where his vehicle was blown up. After completing a 9 month tour, Kevin specialized in high-risk search which consisted of a very small specialized team of 25 guys (at the time) throughout Canada. In 2016 he was promoted to Master-Corporal and then was diagnosed with PTSD which led to a release from the CAF.

This led to growing a beard for the very first time of his life, it was itchy and dry. After bringing products home to help with these symptoms and those being rejected by his holistic nutritionist partner they decided to create their own that didn’t contain chemicals. They were also expecting at the time (currently 6 yr old Arlo). After months of research and development for effective organic beard grooming products made with the highest quality ingredients available in the world, Educated Beards was born Dec 2017.
