Talent management for exceptional artists. Founded by Gary O’Sullivan in 2021, he’s joined by Sarah Hanna, Hermione Halpin, Ella Weston and Veronica Sesti.


Let us introduce ourselves. We’re Ed Currie and Andy Coxon, the founders of AKT (pronounced “act”). We met performing in London’s West End. When performing eight shows a week, under hot lights in the same costumes every night, mainstream deodorants just weren’t cutting it. So we decided to create one ourselves. After three years of researching and developing in our kitchen The Deodorant Balm was born – natural, gender free, plastic free, and 100% recyclable.

Since day one, the theatre community has put every AKT product through its paceson stage to ensure it lives up to our high performance standards. We know that if a product can handle a week in the West End or Broadway it can handle anything.

Theatre is in our DNA. It’s where we first met, and if it weren’t for the support of our beautiful and talented friends in the West End, AKT would still be a side hustle made in our kitchen. Three years on and we are now the UK’s most award deodorant with 11 industry awards (Harper’s BAZAAR, GQ, Marie Claire and more) – far more than we ever received as performers!
