For the last week I have been challenging myself to try a natural option with deodorant. When it comes to deodorant a natural formula may beneficial for personal long-term health and wellness goal. It takes time when you switch because your body needs to adjust to the new formula. I’ve been using the Tom’s of Maine brand.
How often do you look at what is inside products you use every day? I’ll be completely honest, it’s few and far between for me. I’ve never really worried about what was in my products until recently. I feel like as I’m getting older I’m becoming much more concerned with what I put in and on my body. So when I look at products these days, I look to see if the ingredient list is simple and if I know what the ingredients are and what their purpose is? 9 times out of 10, I have almost zero clue. That’s a pretty scary thought.
Tom’s of Maine is a leading natural personal care brand that makes high quality natural toothpaste, mouthwash, dental floss, deodorant, bar soap, body wash, body lotion, hand cream, lip balm and baby care products. Its team consists of distinguished dentists, scientists, and herbal experts that are leaders in their fields, charged with making products that are better for the environment and for consumers. Knowing that the men and women behind Tom’s of Maine are super concerned with the products that they are making makes me feel safer when I look at it.
Tom’s of Maine natural deodorant is the best-selling natural deodorant and has been for decades. Tom’s of Maine Long Lasting Natural Deodorant is now introducing a new deodorant formula with new and improved scents, and as always, is free of aluminum, artificial fragrances and petrochemicals. This is a this is a deodorant (anti-odor) not an antiperspirant (anti-sweat), thus it does not protect against wetness and does not include aluminum as an active ingredient. If you perspire a lot, you may need to choose an antiperspirant, depending on your day’s activities.
I’ve been really enjoying the Tom’s of Maine Lavender scent. It is super refreshing. I wasn’t originally convinced that a natural option in deodorant would work for me but it worked just fine. I really enjoyed the scent and lasted a lot longer than I thought it was going to. I was super impressed.

When trying a natural personal care product for the first time it’s important to give your body time to adjust. If your body is used to a conventional product, you might need a little time to adjust to a natural formula free of chemicals and artificial ingredients. Trying the deodorant for at least 3-7 days, including testing out different scents (or unscented), can help determine the best fit for your body’s unique chemistry.
