SmartyPits, the top-selling all-natural, aluminum-free deodorant on Amazon, has relocated its warehouse from California to Bend. SmartyPits’ Bend warehouse will be able to quadruple the company’s current production output. The new Bend warehouse is approximately 6,300 square feet, almost three-times its previous manufacturing facility.
The new SmartyPits warehouse is located at 693 SE Glenwood Dr., Ste. 100, in Bend. With it, the company is bringing in two new high-capacity melters as well as a fully automated labeling machine.
“This move to Bend and the new warehouse will drastically increase our ability to scale quickly,” said SmartyPits founder and CEO Stacia
SmartyPits’ deodorant won’t clog up your sweat glands like typical antiperspirants; it contains plant-based powders that wick away sweat to keep your armpits dry. SmartyPits formula includes prebiotics, which helps to nourish the good bacteria living in your armpits. With no aluminum salts to stain your pits yellow, natural deodorant helps keep you clean and fresh. SmartyPits is designed for all-day use with no re-application necessary. The super-strength formula is available with the odor-neutralizing power of baking soda for those looking for a little extra protection. All fragrances are phthalate-free, paraben-free, propylene glycol-free, and cruelty-free.
A female-owned business, SmartyPits has a unique back story. When founder Stacia Guzzo’s mother discovered she had breast cancer, it was 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 that linked the aluminum in antiperspirants to breast cancer (as well as Alzheimer’s Disease).
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. Now available in over 900 locations nationwide, SmartyPits is proudly aluminum free, paraben free, phthalate free and propylene glycol free; in addition, SmartyPits donates $0.30 from every large stick sold to breast cancer research and free deodorant to oncology centers, survivor support events and nonprofit groups.
