Right after I had my kiddo, I was home full-time for about 8 weeks and had a lot of time to catch up on old Kardashian reruns. No matter what you say about the Kardashians, we LOVE them! Or at least we love their show because its super entertaining and makes our lives seem a little more normal and a little less chaotic.
Anyways. During one of those reruns, Kourtney made the comment that she doesn’t wear deodorant anymore because some of the chemicals can absorb through your skin and into your breastmilk. Of course I took her word for it and quit wearing deodorant on the spot. That lasted for a while until I was able to start working out again. Then I realized maybe not wearing deodorant at all was not the best decision I ever made.
So I did a little research and found out Tom’s of Maine is a leading natural personal care brand that makes tons of high quality products like natural toothpaste, deodorant, body wash, hand cream, and more! 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.
B-I-N-G-O! This sounded a lot more promising so I gave it a go! Now I literally keep one with me at all times! There is always one in my purse. There is always one in my desk at work. And of course there is always one in my make-up drawer.
You guys are going to love this stuff too! Tom’s of Maine natural deodorant is the best-selling Long Lasting Natural Deodorant and has been for decades. Tom’s of Maine natural deodorant has no aluminum, no petrochemicals, no parabens and no artificial fragrances or preservatives. It is clinically proven, 24-hour odor protection using odor-fighting hops and odor-trapping zinc.
There is no animal testing or animal ingredients. The packaging is fully recyclable through local municipalities or the TerraCycle Tom’s of Maine Natural Care Brigade. And Tom’s of Maine is now introducing a new deodorant formula with new and improved scents. Just note that this is deodorant (anti-odor) not an antiperspirant (anti-sweat) so 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.
If you decide to give it a whirl, just remember that it is important to give your body time to adjust when trying natural personal care product for the first. If your body is used to conventional products, it can take a little bit of time to adjust to a natural formula free of chemicals and artificial ingredients. We would love to hear what you think!
Have a great day friends! =)
