Over the last ten-plus years, our mission has been to create a product that changes people’s perceptions of comfort and wellbeing. Since starting the company from a living room in Wimbledon, YUYU has grown to become an internationally loved self-care brand.
As humanity faces many challenges, we want to do our part in making the world a better place. Now our mission is to harness the power of the YUYU Bottle by creating awareness towards a more sustainable way of living, one person and one company at a time.
A WARM NEW TAKE ON CORPORATE SWAG
As gas and electricity prices continue to soar, finding simpler ways to stay warm is key. The YUYU Bottle gives you up to 6 hours of warmth, keeping your employees warm throughout the workday.
A common complaint of sitting long hours is neck and back pain. The YUYU Bottle doubles as a way to relieve body soreness by relaxing the body via targeted heat therapy.
While it’s impossible to come to a consensus over what the temperature in the office should be, YUYU bridges those temperature gaps by helping employees control their 'personal climate'. Simply wrap and tie the YUYU around the body to warm up or cool down.
For many employees, dealing with period and chronic pain can be agonising and uncomfortable. Help destigmatise and ease period and chronic pain by providing your employees with a YUYU. A proven supportive self-care accessory that targets pain, making work-life manageable.
"Pain is caused by a temporary reduction in blood flow which activates our pain receptors. The elongated YUYU Bottle stands out because it takes advantage of the horizontal arrangements of sensory nerves supplying the human skin. The heat doesn’t just provide comfort and have a placebo effect, it actually deactivates the pain at a molecular level in much the same way as pharmaceutical painkillers work."
- Dr. Brian King, Professor of Physiology, University College London
As the issues around climate change take centre stage, we want to help be part of the change in showing ways how we can all lessen our environmental impact.
That’s why we started the YUYU Initiative, Warm Yourself Not The Planet, where we challenge our customers to turn their thermostats off and instead, warm-up or cool down with YUYU.
Whether that's while you are working from home or at the office, cooking, reading, streaming your favourite shows, or sleeping, we want to highlight the importance that each one of us can control our own 'personal climate' by using simpler methods like using a YUYU.
EMPOWERING INDIVIDUALS TOWARDS A MORE MINDFUL WAY OF LIVING
If everyone in London turned down their heating by just 3 degrees and instead used a YUYU Bottle, it would save the planet 8.6 million KG of CO2.
Reducing your temperature by 3 degrees (8 hours a day) is the same as taking a car off the road for 1842 miles a year.
A study published in Nature Climate Change found that,
As the hybrid work style becomes a norm, with many of us splitting time between the office and at home, optimising energy use is key. Help lower your energy costs both at home and at the office by warming up or cooling down with a YUYU.
Lower your energy bills while lowering your CO2 emissions. A win-win for you and the environment.
As companies equip the office space into pandemic-proof work settings, installing high-grade air filtration systems, contactless hand sanitising stations, temperature screenings, and more, focusing on finding tools that improve your employees' work experience and well-being is important more than ever before.

A HOT WATER BOTTLE THAT'S STYLISH & SAFE
At YUYU, we believe "things held close to your body should be beautiful and safe". That's why our hot water bottles are made from 100% natural, biodegradable rubber, never harmful PVC.
The YUYU rubber bottles are ethically sourced from Forest Stewardship Certified (FSC) forests in Sri Lanka. Using a method called tapping, a cut is made into the tree bark, allowing the fluid to be collected into a vessel attached to the rubber tree. The liquid is a sticky, milky white sap called latex, and after several processes, it is moulded into our signature long YUYU Bottle.
Sourced worldwide, the fabrics used for our YUYU products are REACH certified which stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. This means all fabrics used have been tested and do not contain any harmful chemicals or additives.
From the ultra-soft Cashmere to the fan favourite Cotton Waffle and crisp Pimlico Linens, choose from over 80+ different cover fabrics to find the one that's right for you.
NEW COVER DESIGNS FOR THE NEW NORMAL
Over the last two-plus years, the effects of the Covid pandemic have been far and wide, altering the way we go about our day. With many of us becoming wary of the surfaces we touch, we are now focusing on providing a new collection of antimicrobial YUYU's to help keep those unwanted viruses at bay.

GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
Our success in providing a truly comforting self-care product would not have been made possible without our local rubber producers. As we have grown, we have wanted to do more in providing a fair and equitable distribution for all members involved. That’s why in 2021 we officially joined the Fair Rubber Association.
The customisable YUYU makes it the perfect choice for corporate gifting. Choose from over 80+ cover fabrics to create a branded YUYU for your team or a custom YUYU to gift your important clients.
