#FreshNaturally #CollectiveBiasTom's of Maine line of natural personal care products ever since I was a lowly Pharmacy Assistant assigned to help stock the personal care aisles in my downtime. Back then I bought the soaps and toothpaste and such because they didn't make my sensitive skin itch or trigger my migraines just from smelling it, rather than a particular zeal for natural ingredients. But now that I know (and care!) more about my body, I know that I react in various ways to all petroleum-derived ingredients such as artificial fragrances, flavors, preservatives, and colors. Tom's deodorant is one of many natural products I've switched to over the years in my effort to rid my house and my body of artificial chemicals.
Tom's of Maine does have a line of anti-perspirants as well, called Naturally Dry, but since they all contain aluminum, I personally don't use them. Alzheimers runs in my family, and even though the research linking them isn't definitive, I decided that aluminum was an unnecessary risk for me, just for drier armpits. Plus sweating is the body's natural way of flushing toxins. Why would I want to force that junk to all to stay in?
I keep one stick at home and a second stick with me for two reasons: so I'm not wiping stinky sweaty bacteria all over my nice shower-fresh stick at home, and so that I'm not standing there nekkid after my shower realizing that my deodorant was accidentally left in the car from the day before! It's happened!
cruelty-free and vegan. And most of their products are gluten-free, kosher, pareve, and halal as well!
