Founded in 2010, Youtheory is one of the original collagen supplement brands. Today, our company is one of the largest manufacturers of collagen and turmeric in the U.S. facility in Irvine, California.
Founded by Darren and Patty Rude, Youtheory continues to win top industry awards with our rapidly expanding line of new and innovative health products. We believe Youtheory’s unprecedented success is based on our principles.
According to Darren, “I spent the first half of my career working with other supplement brands and I know that all products are not created equal. Our mission was to create a business built on the utmost integrity, authenticity and quality.”
Youtheory is sold online and in 60,000+ retailers worldwide, including Canada, China, Dubai, France, Iceland, Japan, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Spain, Taiwan, United Kingdom and United States.
Since day one, a single principle has defined our brand. And that’s the belief that if we put people and purpose first, we’ll produce great products that inspire wellness in all — in every stage of life.
Youtheory has always been a family-first company. Started by husband and wife team Darren Rude and Patty Rude, the sense of family extends to everyone at the company. Maybe that’s why we’ve been awarded ‘Best Place to Work’ by the Orange County Business Journal for two years in a row.
Everything we do is based on a dedication to build pure, safe and effective supplements to support our mission to inspire wellness in all. We believe that by creating products that embody the best that science and nature can offer, looking and feeling your best at every stage of life can become a way of life.
committed to quality
Creating supplements of the utmost quality and efficacy is easier said than done. It takes commitment and accountability at every stage. It means traveling the world to source the highest quality raw materials. It means manufacturing every product in-house in our GMP-certified facility. It means testing every product beyond the industry standards. And that’s just the beginning.
From farm to shelf, we’re committed to best-in-class manufacturing processes, guaranteed purity, potency and traceability of every product.
cultivating the future
For us, success has come with the important responsibility to give back. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to help people all over the world by travelling the globe to offer our products, our time and our financial support to support those who need it most. Our number one charitable platform is to support kids in need and we have supported that mission through a variety of philanthropic efforts in our backyard and across the globe.
This calling to serve has brought us to Africa to construct new orphanages for at-risk children, and Kenya to build clean water wells.
At home in the United States, we support NEGU (Never Ever Give Up), UNTIL THEN for street kids, New Horizons to eradicate child homelessness and local children’s hospitals that provide care and resources for children fighting childhood cancer.
Where our products are sourced abroad, we take care of the farmers, their families and their local communities. For every truck of water that irrigates our turmeric field in India, we supply another truck of water for the local village. By helping to sustain the land, we can help more people thrive, all while creating a product that inspires more wellness.
