Mandi Nyambi

Get to Know Me

Where do I even begin? I am the CEO and co-Founder of Baalm, a retail company changing the culture of beauty through community. I am a scientist, writer and entrepreneur passionate about skin tech. I started Baalm after struggling to find the right skin care products for my eczema and sensitive skin. I have a bachelor’s degree in Human Developmental and Regenerative Biology from Harvard and a master’s degree in Nutrition from Columbia. Lately I’ve been exploring ceramics, and making some kiln-worthy vases, bowls and paper-weights.
