Meet Mom and Son
As a wife and working mom of 3 with an unbridled interest in natural products, Chantel Powell found herself frequently whipping up all-natural body care concoctions for her family. She could not have imagined the price her nose would have to pay while shuttling Kam between summer basketball camp and football practice. “You smell like a grown man!” she would tell him. At 6 years-old, her sweet little Kam was now a smelly kid. One day after picking him up, her car smelled more like an NFL locker room than the freshly detailed automobile it was. Chantel refused to settle for!
Chantel set out to purchase deodorant for Kam and discovered there was nothing on the market that she both trusted, and was “fresh” enough for him to be excited about putting on every day. With the lack of chemical-free kid friendly deodorants on the market, coupled with her experience at creating products herself, she created her own for him. Once Kam started wearing it, always wanting to help others, he had the idea of "Mom, you should be making this for everybody”! From there word-of-mouth spread; from his team, to their mothers, to friends to complete strangers! Play Pits was saving noses.
Kameron Powell, or more affectionately known as “Kam”, is an active kid that can find excitement anywhere. A young athlete, Kam has been playing sports since he was 4 years-old. He is captivated by motocross, hot-rods, dirt-bikes and pretty much anything with an engine. He loves swimming, reading bed-time stories, and teaching and playing with his younger brother. He even enjoyed learning chess so much at his barbershop, that he joined the chess club at church. As the only bi-lingual person in his home, he enjoys teaching his family Spanish
Play Pits started out as a mother’s solution to providing a kid-friendly, all natural hygiene option for children with active lifestyles. Play Pits has now grown to a trusted hygiene solution for the entire family offering products for teens, parents and of course young athletes everywhere!
