It's a cleansing deodorant spray rooted in the tradition of Roman inspired baths as a means to purify and cleanse the mind, body and soul.
This is a funny story, and it started during our trip to Turkey in 2019, just like the story behind our Kolonya cleansers.
One of the first Turkish experiences I wanted Amanda to have was a traditional Hamam. She had just flown in from the other side of the world and needed a day of relaxation so I booked us treatments at the Hamam in our hotel.
Fast forward to 2022 and I'm 5 months pregnant.
One of the things I refused to put on my body even before pregnancy was deodorant. The formulas on the market were absolutely abhorrent and the pseudo-natural options had a lot of pseudo-science behind them that left you feeling sticky and didn't even work. PLUS, they had toxic synthetic fragrance I didn't want anywhere near my lymph nodes or breast tissue, especially during this sensitive time in my life.
For the most part, I got away with no deodorant or spritzing a bit of Kolonya here and there, UNTIL I got a whiff of my pregnant self. I didn't know pregnancy BO was a thing, until well, I couldn't get away from it.
I came into work and asked Amanda for help. She thought back to our Hamam spa day and said, "Wouldn't it be cool if we could bottle that whole experience up? Something that did more than just neutralize body odor, but cleansed, boosted your mood and smelled amazing?" We didn't want to just cover the odor, we wanted to remove it. We wanted you to feel clean, fresh and smelling great after using this product without having to compromise your overall health.
We wanted to work with your body's skin microbiome without disrupting it's natural process and took a whole NEW approach to deodorizing using probiotic enzymes that break down all the bad odors while nourishing your skin with botanical extracts and soothing organic ingredients.
I honestly can't live without my hamam and use it all day. I even spray it at the gym (JK, I haven't worked out but Amanda does!)
Just a reminder that proceeds from each purchase will be going to earthquake victims in Turkey.
