Who We Are

Dragon Blood Balm was started by Boris Bernadsky and Roman Kudryashov over a warm bowl of ramen in NYC in early January, 2018. 


Boris Bernadsky

CEO & Chief Chemist

An acupuncturist by training, Boris mined the depths of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Herbs, and western medicine to make something that could heal his hands. Tinkerer and experimenter by nature, Boris leads production and product evangelism.

Roman Kudryashov

Chief Operations, Marketing, and Business

A recreational rock climber, designer, and marketer. Equally good with numbers as with design, Roman leads marketing and the behind-the-scenes stuff that makes a business run.  



Our Beliefs

  1. People + Needs First
    We created Dragon Blood Balm because it filled a need for us. We actively use our own products, and we want to make sure it works for you too. Which means that...

  2. We Won't Compromise on Quality
    Quality matters. A good product will save you time (healing), will make you physically better, will save you money (spend less but get better results)... and if it doesn't work, then why bother making it?

  3. Slow, Steady, and Sustainable
    When we decided to turn a passion project into a full fledged business, we wanted to build something sustainable. Sustainable business practices means that we're okay with growing slowly if that means everything we do is high quality. Sustainable production means that we try to source ingredients that are not only good for you, but good for the environment as well.
