The original idea to create a natural deodorant started in late 2016. Courtney, our founder, read a number of articles about the potential harmful effects of aluminium salts in deodorant and decided to make the switch to something more natural. He also realised that almost all deodorants sold each year are in single-use plastic containers.
He decided to try and ‘scratch his own itch’ and simply make his own deodorant. That would solve both the problem of unnecessary chemicals his deodorant, and the single-use plastic problem.
After months and months of testing and experimentation PITT BALM was born. With final sign-off from friends and family we were ready to go into full production. Since then, PITT BALM has gone from strength to strength and is sold throughout the UK, Europe and North America.
