215: How this Busy Mom Created Play Pits All-Natural Deodorant for Kids (REWIND)

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
