This week we have a rewind episode with @PlayPits founder Chantel Powell. As a busy working mom and wife, Chantel found herself shuttling her son Kameron between summer basketball camp and football practice. She quickly noticed that he was starting to smell like a grown man because he was sweating buckets under his armpits, and that’s when her innovative mindset kicked in.
Chantel decided to develop an all-natural deodorant for her son. And so Play Pits the brand was born.
Play Pits is a 100% all-natural deodorant. It’s free of aluminum, parabens, synthetic fragrances and other harsh chemicals. While it can be used on the most gentle skin types, it also packs a strong punch against odors. Although it started out with a focus on kids, it has an adult line as well, and I love the Queen deodorant! With recent features by @Beyonce and the grand opening of an official Play Pits warehouse, Play Pits is growing and thriving.
- In this episode hear how it all got started as Chantel breaks down:
- How she tested out Play Pits on family to get feedback
- How customer demand led her to evolve from children’s deodorant to an adult deodorant component as well
- How she did it all while side hustling
