Being raised by a hippie environmentalist, my ideas on conservation and the products I use were formed at a very young age. My childhood home was always filled with natural foods and personal care products like Tom’s of Maine toothpaste, so as I grew older I bought many of those things for myself. But one of the last things for me to switch to was a natural deodorant.
Years ago I tried a few natural deodorants because I was concerned about the aluminum that conventional deodorants contain. The problem with many natural aluminum-free deodorants is that they didn’t last all day.
After trying several boutique brands, back to conventional deodorant, I went. It wasn’t until I joined a sponsored blog campaign that I gave Tom’s of Maine aluminum-free deodorant a try. To my surprise, I was very pleased with the results! The other brands don’t hold a candle to Tom’s of Maine. Now I know why they are the #1 natural deodorant brand with a number of award-winning products among its deodorant portfolio.
Why I switched
Your skin is your largest organ and the one that is most vulnerable to products and elements. Because of this, I tend to err on the side of caution and use products that are as natural as possible. Since Tom’s of Maine uses only plant-based ingredients, they are one of my favorite brands to use for all of my personal care needs.
Aside from Tom’s of Maine being aluminum free, I love their scents. I am not one for fake, overpowering fragrances so I love that Tom’s of Maine’s fragrances are natural and subtle. They even have unscented!
As hard as it is to choose, I think my favorite is their new scent, tea tree. I am so into tea tree these days that I use it in my soap and my shampoo as well. It smells so light and fresh to me. I adore it! Their other fragrances include fresh apricot, refreshing lemongrass, natural powder, and honeysuckle rose just to name a few.
Whether I’m at work or at play, Tom’s of Maine natural deodorant performs all day and is a brand that I can trust. Aside from the fact that it works, there are a lot of great reasons to love Tom’s of Maine.
• Their products don’t contain artificial colors, flavors, or fragrances. Their products are also free of EDTA, formaldehyde, parabens, and animal ingredients. Tom’s of Maine has figured out how to make quality products that work by using plant-based ingredients
• Tom’s of Maine also generously gives 10% of their proceeds to nonprofit, community-based organizations committed to human, healthy and environmental goodness.
If this isn’t a reason to support this company, I don’t know what is! If you haven’t given Tom’s of Maine natural deodorants a try yet, I think you’ll be glad you did.
