Founder of Lume
Welcome to Lume! 👋 I'm Shannon Klingman, M.D., the inventor of Lume (pronounced loo-mee) and Mando.
As an OB/GYN resident, I noticed time and time again women came to the doctor with complaints about odor below the belt.
To make it even worse, I watched women leave with a false diagnosis for the odor along with often unnecessary antibiotic prescriptions!
I saw how body odor—whatever the source—was undermining the confidence and self worth of women everywhere.
It felt wrong, and I was determined to find a better solution. I realized that private part odor was—more often than not—an external problem and required an external solution. For the better part of 10 years, I worked on finding that solution.
I was able to prove through clinical testing that the real culprit of most body odor is actually the bacteria on the skin digesting bodily fluids. The same reaction in our underarms happens EVERYWHERE on our body—pits, underboobs, tummy folds, thigh creases, vulvas, balls, butt cheeks, feet, and more.
I could finally prove the vagina was not to blame for day-to-day odor!
After whipping up the first version of Lume in my kitchen, my sister (my most trusted tester) said it made her “lady bits” smell like the back of her hand. That's when I knew we were on to something different.
Lume blocks bacteria from digesting fluids on your skin—like sweat, semen, blood, and urine—and prevents B.O. from happening in the first place, anywhere on your body.
What started as a quest to solve “feminine” odor has become an opportunity to give you, along with people everywhere, the confidence to live your very best life—free from body odor and self doubt!
Lume has won the hearts of millions of customers and earned over 200,000 five star reviews! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Lume Whole Body Deodorant quickly became a cult favorite for women, and men want in too!
Along this amazing journey, we learned from our male customer base that they wanted more masculine scents, so we created Mando Whole Body Deodorant for men.
