What You Need to Know: As a working mom and wife, Chantel Powell could not have imagined the price her sense of smell would have to pay while shuttling her then six year old son, Kameron between summer basketball camp and football practice. “You smell like a grown man!” Chantel said. Each time the car door flew open and Kam buckled in, it was clear that her son wasn’t only scoring buckets on the court, but also sweating buckets under his armpits, which sparked her innovative mindset. And thus, Play Pits was born. 

Play Pits is a black-owned business that handcrafts an all-natural deodorant that is gentle enough for kids and strong enough for the entire family. Play Pits currently offers 3 classic (kids) scents and 2 adult scents and by Spring 2020 we will also have 2 teen scents. We are overjoyed that you are interested in being a part of Play Pits and can not wait to see the artistic talent that you have to offer!
