We believe that earthy can be glamorous..
..natural can be rebellious, and that classic and cutting edge are just opposite sides of the same coin. After all, who says you can’t be a cosmopolitan do-gooder or hug a tree in a suit?
So yeah, we love dualities and believe that looking good and being good are not mutually exclusive. Indeed, noyah means “divine beauty,” and in our hometown of NYC, divine beauty can mean equal parts Central Park and cosmopolitan chaos. And we celebrate this mash-up with eco-chic packaging filled with a range of colors to suit any look, whether you take your style cues from “the greatest city on earth” or the great outdoors.
If you eat it, wouldn’t you want it to be made as food?
Speaking of dualities, you likely eat pounds of lip care products during your life, yet these are made in cosmetic factories – if you eat it, wouldn’t you want it to be made as food? We do, so we make some of our products out of 100% food in kitchens instead of cosmetic plants. Yum.
Which brings us to our mission: making products that don’t exist, but should. Our zeal for difference and contradictions comes from our founder, Dr. Josh Gordon, who heeded the call of entrepreneurship after graduating with a medical degree. And what would be more natural for Dr. Josh than to found a cosmetics company? Wait, it isn’t? Now you tell us?!
Seriously though, edible products is just our first step – more crazy, smart, and fresh things to come.
And until then, live divinely.
We strive for the cleanest products, and get better every year! Some are made from 100% food, nearly all are USDA certified biobased. and others are natural or organic.
70% PCR, bamboo, paper, sugarcane
Good things come in earth-friendly packages, so we reduce plastic waste by incorporating eco-friendlier components – and we add more every year.

Our lip scrub and all of our lip balms are USDA Certified Organic, so you can keep your lips moisturized and your conscience clear.
We ❤ animals - and our products are never tested on them.
Feel confident that you know what's going on - and in - your body. Nearly all products are also preservative free (except for the scrub, which uses a natural one).
Each time you participate in our buy-a-balm, give-a-balm campaign, we'll donate a balm to the homeless. Lip balm may seem like a small gesture, but to some, it is a huge luxury.
