Meet Cap’n Jim Cirile of Blackbeard for Men in Ladera Heights

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cap’n Jim Cirile.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I founded Blackbeard for Men in 2012, when I discovered a wintry forest creeping into my dashing pirate goatee. I tried dyeing and it didn’t work for me. It was a time-consuming, arduous application process, and then only a few days later my gray roots were showing. Plus, after a few applications I started getting terrible skin irritation. I figured there had to be a better way. So I envisioned a new type of beard color that brushed on quickly and easily with no skin irritation. And after much research and testing with our manufacturer, we came upon our now patented, unique beard color formula called Blackbeard for Men Formula X. We’re overjoyed that we’re helping pirates the world over get their beards back from the dread scourge of gray.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
We are in the fortunate position of having a product that actually helps improve people’s lives. Hence the road has been fairly smooth, since our customers recognize the value of the product, and many of them share similar stories to my own.

Blackbeard for Men – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I am most proud of the fact we are giving men the world over a competitive edge. Men no longer need to shave or deal with the hassle of dyes because they’re going gray. Blackbeard for Men can wipe ten years off your appearance in seconds, it goes on quickly, lasts all day and looks 100% natural. Whether you’re up for a promotion in your job or on a blind date or simply want to look sharp and feel better about yourself, there is finally an easy-to-use product that will help.

What sets us apart is that we are the only patented, non-dye beard color. Blackbeard for Men is hypoallergenic, so many of us who cannot use harsh chemical dyes finally have an alternative.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
There have been many. We were very proud to be a cosponsor of Beardcon, with proceeds benefiting prostate cancer research. But nothing makes me prouder than the letters we get from our customers, thanking us for our awesome product. Many of us assume that we have to either deal with our beard, mustache, and sideburns turning white over time, or god forbid, shave. Blackbeard for Men is here to say otherwise.
