I'm always on the lookout for natural products that work well. Personally I haven't purchased deodorant containing aluminum for years, in an effort to limit my family's exposure to aluminum. While I'm sure there's a wide range of opinions about long term exposure to aluminum, I figure better safe than sorry. It can be hard to find deodorant with natural odor protection that actually works; of course no one wants to smell. I'm excited to share with you a wonderful brand of deodorant, Tom's of Maine, that not only gets the job done but it has all the properties that I look for in a deodorant with natural odor protection. It also comes in a wide variety of fragrances, something for everyone!
This post was developed in partnership with Tom's of Maine. All opinions are my own.
Tom's of Maine's specific line of Long Lasting Deodorant does not contain aluminum, any animal ingredients, and no artificial colors, fragrances or preservatives. It dries using natural ingredients that effectively minimize perspiration. Tom's of Maine discloses every ingredient in their deodorants, including where each ingredient is sourced.
As an example, Tom's of Maine's Long Lasting Deodorant contains the following ingredients.
Propylene Glycol (vegetable derived) - Consistency
Water - Consistency
Sodium Stearate from coconut and palm oils - Consistency
Organic Aloe Barbadensis leaf juice - Soothing feel
Glyceryl Laurate from vegetable oils - Deodorancy
Humulus Lupulus (hops) [CO2] extract - Deodorancy
Organic Cymbopogon Flexuosus oil from lemongrass - Deodorancy
Helianthus Annuus (sunflower) seed oil - Moisturizer
Ascorbic Acid from citrus fruits - Antioxidant
I appreciate the naturally drying ingredients that don't leave my skin feeling "burned" or rough especially in the winter months. Aluminum can be especially drying and I often have to moisturize my armpits in the cold weather months. Tom's of Maine natural odor protection moisturizes my skin as well as deodorizing. I also don't have to reapply this deodorant throughout the day to feel fresh. Tom's of Maine deodorant's long lasting odor protection lasts up to 24 hours!
The Long Lasting Deodorants don't contain aluminum and come in fragrances such as wild lavender, tea tree, fresh apricot, and lemongrass. They contain naturally drying ingredients as well as a moisturizer and natural fragrances.
Tom's of Maine Fresh Apricot Deodorant is my favorite. It smells wonderfully sweet and it goes on softly, moisturizing as it freshens. It's infused with natural fragrance and organic oils.
Long lasting Unscented Deodorant is a good option if you are sensitive to any fragrance. It literally has no smell, other than the tiniest hint of aloe. Tom's of Maine unscented deodorant is like wearing deodorant without wearing deodorant, no fragrance.
Refreshing Lemongrass is also a personal favorite, it smells fresh and sunny without any sharp or sour undertones. Wild Lavender smells just like lavender, also moisturizing, naturally scented, and infused with Organic plant-derived oils.
Overall, I love Tom's of Maine deodorant with natural odor protection and it's definitely a purse essential to put in my Coco & Kiwi Sydney Diaper Bag, when I'm out running around with the kids. Although if you apply this long lasting deodorant in the morning, you likely won't need to reapply! I have lots of fun chasing my three kiddos around during the day, and my little guy is just starting to stand and take supported steps. I don't want to be worried about how I smell as I play with my kids and I'm careful with which chemicals I allow in the products that I use. Tom's of Maine deodorant offers a great combination of dryness, freshness, and moisturizing in a way that's naturally derived and beneficial for my family. Tom's of Maine also makes deodorant for men and kids, as well as a wide range of other natural hygiene products.
