We begun unofficially three years ago when founder Tanya Powell-Edwards became concerned about underarm stains on her cotton shirts. At that time she was working in the corporate world as a Training Officer.
Her research on her Underarm stain problem suggested that the aluminum in the antiperspirant was interacting with her sweat causing a chemical reaction and resulting in the stain. She became more concerned after reading that studies have found aluminum in the breast tissue of women diagnosed with breast cancer. While researching an article popped up that challenged her to make natural Deodorant and trying the recipe in her kitchen placed her in a whole new world.
Taynas Body Care (TBC) was registered as a business in 2015. However Operations begun to grow after our Founder made a decision to resign from a very busy full time job that left little time for her to pursue her other passions including additional training at the Scientific Research Council (SRC), University of Technology (UTECH), Jamaica Business Development Corporation (JBDC) and mentorship with Sister's Ink.
TBC has added to the line of natural of skincare products to include a variety of natural bar soaps, many with herbal properties, coffee body scrub, herbal lotions, body oils, garlic oil as well Bodywash done to order.
TBC now supplies Activated Charcoal, Turmeric and Bentonite soaps to approximately 10 locations in natural skincare stores, herbal stores and pharmacies in Jamaica. With an ecommerce store to share the products with the rest of the world, we have so far filled orders from the USA and Canada.
