Helping the world
Go Aluminum Free
We’re committed to helping you #goaluminumfree for life, because our product is built on a story.
When founder Stacia Guzzo’s mother discovered she had breast cancer, it was a through noticing a lump directly underneath her armpit.
She had no family history of breast cancer or noted genetic predisposition, so Stacia began to do some research to learn more about breast cancer and its risk factors. That was the first time she learned about studies which linked the aluminum in antiperspirants to breast cancer (as well as Alzheimer’s Disease).
At the time, Stacia tried to go aluminum-free herself—but it was a struggle. A dedicated “clinical strength” antiperspirant user, Stacia needed something that controlled odor all day, had a smoother application, smelled great, and felt convenient to use.
She didn’t find anything on the market that hit all those marks...
...so a few years later after studying skin care formulation, she created one herself. It would take a few years of trial and error to perfect, but SmartyPits was originally born on a tiny kitchen stovetop in 2014.
The mission of SmartyPits is to help the world go aluminum free, one stick at a time.
Each stick of SmartyPits is mixed, poured, and labeled by hand by members of our small-but-mighty SmartyPits Squad in Tehachapi, California.
We use thoughtfully sourced and cruelty-free ingredients, none of our manufacturing is outsourced, and we work hard to make sure each SmartyPits is poured with love and hope.
Our containers are 100% recyclable--including our labels--through most curbside recycling programs.
Our SmartyPits Squad is made up of mothers and fathers, daughters and sons, sisters and brothers.
We're dancers and BMX riders, artists and shower-singers, avid readers and secretly-awesome-bakers. We're committed to doing our best work on a daily basis, we love what we do— but most of all, we love why we do it.
Thank you for trusting us to help you go aluminum free in your deodorant choice.
We're honored to have our daily work be a part of your life.
