FAQ

Who is NOHBO?

NOHBO is the brainchild of Benjamin Stern, a young entrepreneur, with the mission of producing single-use, eco-friendly and cost-effective personal care “Drops” that help eliminate bottle waste and save the environment. Originally seen on Shark Tank, and part of the Mark Cuban and JB Fitzgerald family of companies, NOHBO has spent the past couple of years perfecting the line of water soluble products, called NOHBO “Drops”. Drops are available for shampoo, conditioner (coming soon), body wash and shave cream (coming soon). Furthermore, our Slip lines work to replace weighted and wasteful Bar Soap. By using plant-based, high-quality, eco-friendly vegan products NOT tested on animals, NOHBO eliminates the cycle of reducing, reusing and recycling by plastic products in the bathroom

Why is NOHBO different?

NOHBO is the world’s first single-use and eco-friendly personal care product aimed at eliminating excess plastic waste typically used during the showering process.

Where have I seen NOHBO before?

NOHBO, and its Founder Benjamin Stern, was first introduced to the world on the February 18th, 2016 episode of Shark Tank, where he secured a deal with Mark Cuban. The original product was NOHBO “Balls”. After working through typical startup challenges and determining optimal manufacturing and distribution channels, NOHBO pivoted slightly in its product design to prepare for mass distribution to consumers and to commercial accounts. The concept of a more universally recognized “pod” was embraced and all systems were put in motion to develop and produce what would become a full line of NOHBO Drops. All original concepts around single-use, eco-friendly and “made in the USA” were kept intact. Additional funding was raised to begin the development of a comprehensive line of NOHBO personal care products. Fast forward to 2020 and all systems are go for the national launch of NOHBO Drops.
