Hi One Tough Muther,
I hope all is well! I am the co-founder of Smiley Pits all natural deodorant designed with kids in mind ( adults love it too). We are new business, and have grown pretty quickly. I would love for you to read our story and check out our website. There might be a few ways we can work together. I am so new at this and am trying to navigate the best way to market Smiley Pits online. I would appreciate any advice. Thank you so much!

Smiley Pits is on its way to making the world a less stinky place, one kid at a time. And, it all started right in Kristi Joynt’s Croatan kitchen!

Kristi is a health conscientious mom, who enjoys making deodorant for her family. One day, she shared her product with good friend and fellow mom, Sara Salter.

Sara loved it right away and began using it with her her 9 year old lacrosse-playing odoriferous son. And, the light bulb went off for these ladies: We need to make deodorant for kids. That was the start of Smiley Pits, created by two neurotic moms who love their children.

Sara & Kristi believe in the best for their kids, and know that as their sweet babies get older, they get smelly! We’re talking, gross, yucky, disgusting smelly. They did their research and saw that there aren’t many deodorants specifically for kids. Not liking what main stream deodorants offered (ie: synthetic materials, aluminum, parabens, phthalates, toxins, etc.), they came up with the perfect formula.

Smiley Pits is a family affair and their kids’ input is at the heart of it. The kids helped design the snazzy packaging and the cool scent names were all thought up by the cute little stinkers. Sara’s oldest son is very proud of his “sick nasty defense” scent and Kristi’s daughter loves her “rock tough” scent. Smiley Pits has five very unique scents to choose from, and all of them are safe and effective.

Sara and Kristi like to say that they turn smelly into smiley. It’s hard not to smile when you know you are making the world a less stinky place on kid at a time. Sara & Kristi have just begun their journey as businesswomen and look forward to helping other moms and dads who want a deodorant for their kids that they can feel good about. You can learn more or order products from their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/smileypitsvb) or their website (www.smileypits.com).


Dear Sara and Kristi,

What a great name and awesome idea. I suggest you work your vibe on instagram. It is a great place to get your message out to the world. I would also buy some FB ads, they are really not expensive and you can target your demo to hit the right audience.

Best of luck ladies and continue to keep the air aroma fresh.

Huge Muther Hugs,

One Tough Muther
