About

Dude Stick - Lip Balm for Men with 100% natural ingredients

NEW REWARDS AND STRETCH GOALS ADDED! (Check the updates)

The idea for Dude Stick came to me when I was rushing to work one morning and stopped to grab some lib balm at a gas station. When I looked at my choices, I was not too impressed. Some of the lip balm tasted like chemicals and would just make them hurt worse, but none were designed for men. Then the idea for Dude Stick was born.

Dude Stick is a mint flavored lip balm designed specifically for men using core natural ingredients. I spent a good amount of time asking guys what they liked in a lip balm and what they didn't. Surprisingly, most guys chose natural options whether they knew it or not. Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E oil and Peppermint oil are the main active ingredients. This formula is SERIOUSLY smooth and has a slight cool mint tingle to it. Will your favorite brand compare?

The lip-balm tube is a tactical matte black with gray writing printed directly on the tube, no labels. Minimalist at its core. Only the bare necessities. Nothing complicated, everything you want and nothing you don't. It also boasts a 30 SPF rating.

The money raised will go towards a bulk order that will allow me to start distribution of Dude Stick. I like to keep things simple just like Dude Stick.

Risks and challenges

The production time to create this product is not incredibly long, so even if there is a hiccup or two in production, Dude Stick will ship within a month or so of the promised date.

If there is an enormous demand, the shipping will be done in phases and this could delay receiving the product because of the sheer volume of items to be shipped.

The greatest risk to this project is whether or not the Sun will explode before I am able to ship. I am definitely not prepared for this risk.

I sincerely hope that this does not happen (for all mankind).
