Back in the colonial settlements in the early 19th century, the wise apothecary blended the finest ingredients known to man, using ancient tools
and methods to seperate and heat, using pestle and mortar to crush and mix
natures finest substances releasing their almost magical properties.
The result of this endevour was an elixir from the gods that channeled natures majesty, and tamed the searing power of it’s ingredients. Bottled and
tinned ready for the chosen few that would be lucky enough to harness it’s
These grooming products were lovingly created by our forefathers and were
passed down into history and myths. Inside each container is an elixir that while temporarily tamed within it’s container, will release it’s mysteries and
majesty when opened!

Celtic Rebel Story
Like many great products, our beard oils, beard balms, mustache waxes, and
pomades were originally created for our own personal use.
We were frustrated by the lack of premium quality grooming products
available to men and just wanted something that worked! Holding and
shaping products made for ‘head hair’ usually dissolved in water (not a useful
quality for a moustache that is likely to be dunked in water, tea, coffee, juices,
and beer throughout the day) and were not firm enough for stiff moustache
hair. Specific moustache waxes and beard oils we had tried were often
potently scented and never lived up to their claims. We felt sure that there
must be a simple solution – after all, men have been shaping moustaches for
Beards have a long history , and we looked at the history of mustache wax,
beard balm, and beard oils. We researched and found details of beeswax
based ‘Mustache Wax’ and ‘Beard Conditioning’ products (bear balm, beard
oil) being sold in the United States back in the 1890s. We kept as close to
the traditional methods and ingredients as we could and where substitutions
had to be made, only the best quality alternatives were used (e.g. Whale Oil
was substituted for Jojoba Oil)
By combining original vintage recipes with top quality modern ingredients
(and a whole lot of testing variations on ourselves) we created our first
moustache wax and beard oil. When the products started to take off, the
name and packaging was created, reflecting the product’s US heritage –
Celtic Rebel was born.
We now supply thousands of traditionally made grooming products every
week that are loved by our customers because they have been proven to
work over hundreds of years, are filled with natural, organic ingredients and
are nut allergy safe. Please browse our product range here.
note – You will find that we spell mustache and moustache on various
sections of our website and social network pages.
