Now there is an affordable, sustainable, and fashionable way to make, transport, and drink Alkaline Water—whenever, wherever.
The DYLN Living Water Bottle combines good looks and functionality to not only replace all other water bottles, but to be THE source for your water.
According to Dr. Gerald Pollack, your body consists of over 99 percent water molecules, which makes water the most important factor to our health.
In general, alkalinity promotes and maintains optimal health in the body, while acidity has a negative impact. While some acidity is natural and necessary, many people suffer from leaning too acidic, which is a far too common result of our modern diet from acidic foods and beverages. When we lean acidic, our bodies compensate through natural buffers, which kick in to maintain the necessary alkalinity in the body. Overtime this compensation can lead to unintended consequences, such as weaker bones and muscles or even disease. Alkaline water offers a convenient and safe way to bing our bodies back into balance and achieve optimal hydration.
- DESIGN Patented ergonomic design for a perfect fit in your hand, a wide mouth opening, and fits in all standard-sized cup holders
- STAINLESS STEEL Food-grade 316 stainless steel that is toxic-free, PBA-Free, does not leach, and completely free of plastic from top to bottom
- ALKALINE DYLN's VitaBeads within the replaceable Diffuser instantly starts increasing the pH of your water to create alkaline water
- GRIP Removable food-grade silicone sleeve for added grip, colored aesthetics, and always remains dry
- HANDLE Stainless steel bamboo cap with convenient carrying handle
VOLUME Holds 750mL (25.4 oz) of alkaline water
- SUSTAINABILITY Designed & developed to be the sturdiest, long-lasting and sustainable water bottle available
Made from sustainable bamboo, with our laser-etched logo, a food-grade silicone sealer, and stainless steel, the cap ensures that your water only touches the stainless steel. The handle allows you clip it to your favorite pack, or simply let the bottle hang from your hand for added portability—comes in especially handy when you are holding multiple items at once.
We chose to use the highest grade of stainless steel to ensure our bottle was free from any plastic, PBA, or toxins. We use surgical grade 316 Stainless Steel that does not leach, is coercion-free, and reinforced with Titanium for added strength and durability. Unlike aluminum bottles, there is no lining of any kind. We also do not no use any paint, so there will never be any unclassy paint chips.
With the removable food grade silicone sleeve, the bottle always stays dry in your hand and ensures the best possible grip due to the patented ergonomic exterior design of the bottle. For those that prefer the sleek stainless steel look, the sleeve can be easily removed (also for efficient cleaning) or replaced with another color for customization.
*VitaBead Diffuser design is a sample and may change upon production.
The VitaBead Diffuser is securely inserted into its base on the bottom of the bottle. The VitaBeads secured within the Diffuser are specially formulated to interact with the water within the bottle to increase the pH to create and maintain alkaline water. They will also reduce the water's Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) to a negative level. With an included tool piece, the Diffuser can be easily removed for cleaning or replaced after the recommended 400 refill lifespan, which is based off of the 750mL capacity of the bottle.
Above all, we wanted the most simple, easy-to-use, easy-to-clean, high quality, sustainable and elegantly designed bottle to drink alkaline water.
This is all achieved with the DYLN Living Water Bottle. Simply fill the bottle, allow the water to alkalize, then drink!
You can use any water to fill up the bottle, but we recommend using filtered water, as the bottle does not filter water. The DYLN Living Water Bottle was designed & developed to alkalize your water, quickly and efficiently.
Once the bottle has been filled with water, the VitaBeads instantly start alkalizing the water. The VitaBeads are formulated to increase the pH of water to an optimal level of 9 to 9.5pH. The pH will increase over time then stabilize. The biggest increase typically happens within the first 30 minutes.
The DYLN Living Water Bottle can be hand washed as a unit, or is dishwasher safe, after removal of the bamboo cap, VitaBead Diffuser, and silicone sleeve. The bamboo cap must be hand washed and not submerged in water in order to preserve the bamboo- for added preservation, coconut oil can be applied to the bamboo. The silicone sleeve is dishwasher safe when cleaned separately or can easily be hand washed with light soap.
The VitaBead diffuser can be cleaned separately by removing it from the bottle. For thorough cleaning, the Diffuser should be placed in cup of diluted vinegar for 10 minutes. After approximately 400 refills, we recommend replacing with a new VitaBead Diffuser to maintain optimal alkalinity.
Every hour 2.5 million plastic bottles are thrown away in America, for an estimated 50 billion plastic bottles ending up in the landfill worldwide. Plastic bottles take an average of 500 years to biodegrade and use up precious space on our planet.
In addition to taking up space, plastic bottles are a waste of resources and release toxic waste into the environment. According to NPR, as many as 3 liters of water is required to produce a 1 liter plastic bottle of water, and bottling water can produce more than 2.5 million tons of carbon dioxide yearly!
With bottle water consumption nearly double what it was a decade ago, bottling and shipping water is the least energy efficient method used to supply fresh water. The DYLN Living Water Bottle is one more way to eliminate single use bottles!
We chose to launch on Kickstarter so we could successfully fund our first production order, which allows us to source the best materials, implement the highest and most effective quality control standards, and receive competitive costs. We have already completed most of the tooling necessary to complete the bottle, including our patented exterior bottle shape, the cap and handle, and the silicone sleeve grip. The remaining tooling necessary to move the DYLN Bottle into production is the VitaBead Diffuser, the bottom of the bottle where the Diffuser will attach to, and the tool piece used to remove and insert the diffuser.
We have sourced multiple factories capable to produce the DYLN Bottle that meet our stringent quality standards, and we will finalize our decision upon completion of the remaining tooling pieces.
The 2015 schedule is based on the successful funding of this campaign.
New Limited Edition Chrome Finish Available!
*Each reward containing a DYLN Living Water Bottle includes 1 VitaBead Diffuser secured inside the bottle. Any extra Diffusers included in the rewards are in addition to the single Diffuser secured in each bottle.

Risks and challenges
Before launching the campaign, we wanted to ensure that we have done as much as possible to minimize and risk or be able to overcome any possible challenge that may arise. This is why we have spent so much time aligning with the top producers and third party quality control agents, in addition to our direct team, that will monitor every step of the production.
Upon successfully reaching our funding target, we can complete the final tooling components to begin production. Much of the tooling and molds have already been completed and paid for prior to launching the campaign, such as the exterior bottle shape, the silicone sleeve and the cap.
Our manufacturing partners are prepared to fulfill larger-than-expected orders if there happens to be an increase in expected sales. In a situation where the order is much larger than expected, the completion timeline could be affected due to the increased order size and ensuring the highest possible quality and inspection. Backers will be promptly updated with any changes to the production schedule and any overall updates that could affect the product.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Alkaline water has a pH greater than 7. The DYLN Living Bottle increases the pH of water to around 9.5 pH making it alkaline.
pH stands for the power of hydrogen, which is a measure of hydrogen ion concentration. The pH scale ranges from 1-14 used to measure how acidic or alkaline a substance is. A pH of 7 is neutral. A pH less than 7 is acidic, and a pH greater than 7 is alkaline. If you were curious, it was invented by Danish chemist S.P.L. Sørensen back in 1909.
They are a proprietary blend of all natural minerals that increases the pH and decreases the ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) to create alkaline and antioxidant water for more effective hydration. They are formed and shaped by a heating process at a temperature over 800 degrees Celsius. The main ingredients are magnesium, tourmaline, zinc, and silica.
The VitaBeads will last approximately 400 refills based on the 750mL volume of the bottle—equivalent to 300 liters. To ensure optimum alkalinity, the Diffuser should be replaced with a new one after the recommend lifespan.
Once the DYLN Living Bottle is available in the market, additional VitaBead Diffusers can be purchased on our website (www.dylnbottle.com).
Plenty enough to keep you hydrated for hours. To be exact, 750mL or 24.5oz—equivalent to a wine bottle.
The stainless steel portion of the bamboo cap can be easily hand washed with water and light soap while keeping the bamboo portion dry. We recommend removing the silicone sealer to clean separately. To keep the bamboo looking fresh, we recommend using a good wood oil, such as mineral oil.
Once we are fully funded and after the campaign ends, you will be receiving a survey where you will be able to select the color(s) of your bottle(s). We will also ask you for shipping address.
Unlike many of the alkaline water machines on the market (water ionizers) that use a process called electrolysis to increase the pH of water, the DYLN Living Bottle alkalizes the water naturally through our VitaBeads.
