Lymph Candy is a deodorant line based out of Brooklyn focused on bringing the highest quality non toxic deodorant to North America & beyond.
Founded by committed new parents Megan Hartman-Sparks and Pierre Andre in July 2016. The duo having gone from giving away product to friends and family, to a small thriving operation in their home, to successfully launching their online store and scaling their operations.
With harsh chemicals continuously being used without consumer education, words like “aluminum” and “hydrogenated” felt like a death sentence to Pierre and Megan. Ultimately they were fed up with the lack of transparency in the cosmetic industry. The duo’s vision for Lymph Candy is simple; educate people on their own bodies, and their own power to achieve better long-term health goals. To execute such a vision, the company is committed to providing the best in class customer service in addition to manufacturing and promoting only the simplest product on the market.
The guiding values and principles for the company are “chemical free snuggle sessions” (helping parents keep babies away from armpit toxins), “the ratios are the secret” (working tirelessly to maintain efficacy with only 6 ingredients), and “lymphatic health is one of the paramount paths to the best overall long term health” (keeping aluminum & fake chemicals out of the body).

Risks and challenges
Over the past year, we developed multiple formulations of our deodorant based on consumer feedback. Since we have total control over the manufacturing process we are able to make sure our product is of the highest quality. We are ready to take production up a notch as soon as the Kickstarter project is funded. Of course, there may be unforeseeable issues that arise in production or distribution of the rewards, but we have a great team working to ensure that the products will reach your door as quickly as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
