About Us: How We got started!
We begun unofficially in 2015 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.
Taynas has added to the range 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 body wash done to order.
Taynas now supply Activated Charcoal, Turmeric Bar soaps and Bentonite soaps to a number of locations in natural skincare stores, herbal stores and pharmacies in Jamaica including Earth Elements and Pro-Active Lifestyle stores.
Our products are bought by mainly Jamaicans in countries such as USA, Canada, Ireland, Germany and parts of Africa including Zambia and Zimbabwe.
