Our Founder

We’re so glad you’re here! I’m Jaime, founder of Goddamn Man Co, a moto-inspired premium skin and beard care brand. GDM Co sprang from getting tired of being sick and tired.  I was Director of a federally funded disability policy and advocacy agency.  It was both rewarding and demanding work. Eventually, I became worn out from dealing with state bureaucracy. It felt like I was constantly pushing a boulder up hill.  After several years, I was bitter, angry, and unpleasant to be around.  I felt empty and it was time to leave. 

A few years before that point, I began using essential oils and other plant-based ingredients to address health issues that stemmed from work-related stress. When my sweetie was growing a beard, he experienced dry, itchy skin. I made him a few things that helped, and we gave them out as gifts.  Soon people were asking for more and the idea for GDM was born.    

I left my state job in February, 2020 and was let go from my retail job that same month. I registered my business with the state on February 28th.  Then, the pandemic hit. I used up all my savings, credit and a small retirement account to build our business and inventory. We opened virtually on August 15, 2020.

Handcrafting GDM face and skin and beard care products brings us joy and makes us laugh. We created a brand that reflects our sense of humor, love of motorcycles, respect for the environment and desire to help men look, smell and feel good every day. We poke fun at hyper-masculinity while also embracing it and the wonderful qualities of the men we love. A Goddamn Man is the epitome of manliness. He is beard, brains, brawn and bike.  He’s also kind, a feminist, and cares about social issues and the environment.

The Original Goddamn Man

The Original Goddamn Man is intelligent, ruggedly handsome, outdoorsy, strong and well-muscled. He is a good lover, rides fast, has a voice like a canyon and plays a mean git-fiddle. He climbs mountains, swims rivers and chops wood. He loves Rainier beer, bourbon and martinis. Now, his skin is soft, he smells delicious and his beard is well-groomed. I love the way my Goddamn Man looks, smells and feels. I can’t keep my hands off him after he moisturizes and styles his beard.

Our Commitment

We are committed to using only responsibly-sourced ingredients with documented benefits to skin and hair. We source ingredients from small businesses that use socially and environmentally responsible practices. Our oils and butters are organic or wild harvested and fair traded. We use beeswax from Oregon Beekeepers. Our scents are formulated with organic or wild harvested essential oils. Finally, we use carbon neutral shipping and recyclable or reusable packaging whenever possible. In doing so, we hope to promote the future of Goddamn Men for generations to come.
