Clare's Story

Clare's Story

Clare is the youngest of the eleven Duggan siblings. Smart, loving and so well -adjusted, her siblings always teased their mother that with number eleven she had finally gotten the formula right. The caboose in large families is often the cherished and coddled mascot for older siblings. Clare ba...
Our raw story

Our raw story

In the winter of 1999, Annie started to get sick. At least my mother and I thought so. Everyone else thought we were crazy. She was getting really thin and she was getting married — two events held culturally in high esteem and two events that frequently coincide. Mom and I knew better. There wa...
Mary's Story

Mary's Story

For all of Annie’s physicality, Mary is wholly cerebral. “I am,” says Mary, “the original geek. I have had my nose in a book my entire life. I have ruined my eyes, my posture, and all muscle tone, but it is my true passion.”With a degree in creative writing, Mary had worked as a college instruct...

Annie's Story

Spend just a few minutes with the Duggan Sisters and you will experience the synergy that makes their partnership so unique and so very special. Like an old married couple, they finish each other’s sentences and wordlessly anticipate each other’s needs. “We are actually twins,” says Annie, “born...

Don't Be A Boob

Armed with their deodorant can and their breast diagram, the Duggan Sisters launched their DON’T BE A BOOB campaign in the fall of 2008 and there has been no going back. Not satisfied with reaching the relatively small number of individuals that can afford a $200 lymphatic drainage massage, the Duggan Sisters are determined to reach untold numbers with their message of prevention through purification. Starting with the basics: healthy deodorant; informed lingerie decisions; the benefits of rebounding; and the importance of living foods — the Duggan Sisters are determined to change the world with their sensible approach to real wellness.
From Our Home to Yours

From Our Home to Yours

Being victims was never an option for the Duggan Sisters; so, they combined their weakened but still substantial skill sets to prove that there had to be a better way than the hopeless or diminished prognosis medicine frequently had to offer. What they learned about healing both body and soul, and their special training in lymphatic wellness, infuses their health message and the amazing products that grew organically from their own personal journeys to wholeness...

...The Duggan Sisters' brand is the inspiring story of sisters determined to beat the odds and take others along for the ride. Unable to find a natural deodorant that worked, and keenly aware of its importance to lymphatic wellness, the Sisters focused their combined energies and cracked the code on natural deodorant, creating lifestinks®: the natural deodorant that actually works. Determined to make a go of it despite the rough economy, they pooled all of their resources — even sharing a home and a car —and established their “empire” in the basement of The Rose Cottage.
