Who Is YDB?:
An affable group of open-minded creators excited about creating products that carve a fresh, fun niche in your lives.
What Is YDB?:
If we're being literal, YDB is essentially a line of lip balms. But we do other things too. Like put on events, reissue new-wave funk records and sponsor parties we'd be psyched to party at with you.
Why Do I Need Another Brand of Lip Balm In My Life?:
You don't. There are no less than 10,000 lines of lip balm on the market. But there are also 10,000 brands of t-shirts, beers, swimsuits, cat foods, erasers, nail clippers and glue sticks. We need nothing more.
HOWEVER: The deal with YDB is that it's USDA Organic, it's all-natural, it's made in the U.S. and it's all of those things without sacrificing sexiness or style. And guess what? You're a sexy, stylish beast.
Where is YDB based?:
We're currently set up in Brooklyn, NY and Los Angeles, CA.
How did all of this start?:
A few years back, one of us began by making it on our stove in Brooklyn. It involved raw beeswax, eye droppers, chopsticks and a kitchen scene that looked not unlike the inside of Walt & Jesse's trailer. We gave it to friends and family as a lark, though suddenly, other -- more official -- doors began to open.
We got our act together, ditched the chopsticks and teamed up with a real deal organic manufacturer. We worked our faces off connecting with like-minded retailers, distributors and sales pros who believed in what we were doing. Starting a business is hard, people -- but if you find the right partners, things can get super fun (which is what we're in it for.)
Anything Else I Need to Know?
Probably! But we want to hear what you have to say. Dream flavors, potential partnerships, press write-ups or just suggestions on how to be a better You Da Balm, hit us up!
