Last year, I collaborated with one of my favorite brands, Tom’s of Maine in their #WhyISwitched Campaign (see here). This year, I’m partnering with them again to continue spreading the word that there are natural deodorants out there that work just as well as conventional ones!
For those of you who have been following me for awhile, or are a member of the green beauty community, you know that there are a few products that can be a bit challenging finding a good natural version of. One of those challenges has been for a clean, natural and effective deodorant. One that also lasts all day, smells amazing, doesn’t irritate underarm skin and won’t leave stains on your clothes (my personal pet peeve)! Because I had such a long, rather specific list of criteria, this was one of the last products I switched out for a cleaner one. And it wasn’t that the brands I was using didn’t work, they did. I just became much more aware of what I was putting in and on my body and no longer felt comfortable using conventional deodorants. #sorrynotsorry
Besides the fact that these Tom’s of Maine deodorants are the closest thing I could find to conventional ones in terms of application and wear, the scents are among some of the best I have come across in natural deodorants. My favorite for the longest time was the “Tea Tree” scent ( a very clean, fresh fragrance), and coming in second was the “Fresh Apricot” (sweet and feminine). Lately, though, I’ve been loving “Wild Lavender”, with its soft, subtle, and calming lavender scent from lavender essential oil. These also contain Aloe Vera Leaf Juice and Sunflower Seed Oil to soothe and moisturize sensitive underarm skin. Best of all there is no Baking Soda in the formula, so no irritation! Oh, and NO OIL STAINS on your clothes either! Woot!!
More reasons to check them out:
- Tom’s of Maine natural deodorant contains NO aluminum, artificial fragrances or preservatives, and no petrochemicals
- Clinically proven, 24-hour odor protection using odor-fighting hops and the mineral zinc and only natural fragrances
- Fully recyclable packaging through local municipalities or the TerraCycle Tom’s of Maine Natural Care Brigade
- No animal testing and no animal ingredients
- With every purchase, Tom’s of Maine gives 10% of profits back to helping people and the planet
- They are the #1 natural deodorant brand with a number of award-winning products among its deodorant portfolio
Another thing I love about Tom’s of Maine deodorant is that you can find them easily at your grocery store or even Target. I know a few people that prefer to shop in-store rather than online, so having easy access to a clean deodorant brand is a huge plus for them. Also, the price is basically the same as the mainstream brands, so it’s kind of a no-brainer as to which way to go! 😉
I think that no matter how many natural deodorants I try, Tom’s of Maine will always be one of my favorite, holy grail, can’t go wrong picks! 💕
