We are a small business consisting of a husband and wife team with a background in clinical laboratory science and engineering. We have two young children and the products were initially developed for them. We had a preemie with dry skin patches and a one year old dealing with chapped lips and facial redness. Using standard lip balms full of preservatives on such delicate skin was not something we were comfortable with. That’s when the research started, along with additional training in natural skin care, aromatherapy, and herbal studies.
Since this was initially a side project, the focus was on quality ingredients that would deliver quick results. Period. It was not about having to sacrifice quality in order to minimize cost, which I believe is part of the reason our products work so well. When all was said and done, we had a 100% organic and completely non-toxic lip and body balm that worked wonders on their sensitive skin! Over the next two years, our line expanded by a few more products while developing a small customer following. We decided to officially launch our brand in 2019 - The Y & W Laboratory, LLC.
Our products offer a combination of gentle, yet powerful, botanicals that work together to achieve healthy skin for everyone – all ages and skin types. We strive to provide that handful of basic essentials that will naturally resolve most common skin problems.
All products are handcrafted in small batches, non-toxic, and cruelty-free certified. Quality is never compromised in any of our formulations. The products we offer are the exact same ones that we make for ourselves and our family.
#givebackSince our first product was inspired by wanting to do better for our children, we want to help others do the same. A portion from every product sold will be donated to local non-profits focused on children and families.
