Tom's of Maine Natural Deodorant #WhyISwitched #DeoSwitch

Image placeholder title

Over the course of parenthood, my husband and I have become more conscious of what goes in our bodies and on our skin. As a family we've become more aware of all the overly processed products we use on a daily basis and, for the sake of our health and our children's health, have taken huge strides towards switching to natural products. I'm embracing the motto of nourishing your body from the inside out. As I age, I want to treat my body like the beautiful temple it is, starting with putting natural products in my body and on my skin.

This summer, I decided to try natural deodorants by Tom’s of Maine. Have you ever looked at the list on the back of your everyday bathroom products? Go look right now at the list of ingredients in your deodorant. Go ahead, I'll wait.

Are you back? It's surprising isn't it! Lots of the items listed on my deodorant, I didn't even know what they were. They definitely weren't natural. That's #WhyISwitched to Tom's of Maine.

I choose Tom's of Maine because they are a leading natural personal care brand that makes high quality natural toothpaste, mouthwash, dental floss, deodorant, bar soap, and baby care products (something for the whole family). Its team of distinguished dentists, scientists and herbal experts are leaders in their fields, and are charged with developing a wide range of products and choices so people can decide what best fits their needs and values. Also, I could easily find their product in my local stores, which was important to me when buying deodorant. (I like to smell them before buying them.)

Tom's of Maine natural deodorant contains no aluminum, artificial fragrances or preservatives and no petrochemicals. I felt confident putting it on my sensitive skin.

As a busy mom of two, I stay active. Whether it's running errands around town, taking kids to and from school and activities, housework, working out, or chasing my toddler around—I feel like I'm always on-the-go. Couple that with the fact that I live in Arizona (dry heat still is still hot!) and I knew I would really be putting Tom's of Maine natural deodorant to the test during my #DeoSwitch.

Tom's of Maine is clinically proven, 24-hour odor protection using odor-fighting hops, and the mineral, zinc, and only natural fragrances. Tom's of Maine is available in six different fragrances and is the best-selling natural deodorant and has been for decades. There is a scent for everyone.

So, how did my #DeoSwitch go? Yes, you're all wondering how I fared using natural deodorant. I'm happy to report that I loved Tom's of Maine long lasting deodorant.

I tried these natural deodorants out for a week and a half, testing out different scents (or unscented), to determine the best fit for my body’s unique chemistry. I was surprised to find that I really enjoyed the Refreshing Lemongrass and Fresh Apricot scents the best. I loved that I could smell great, naturally.

When they say 24-hour odor protection, they really mean it. With my old deodorant I always used to reapply during the day, but with Tom's of Maine I felt fresh longer. Plus, Tom's of Maine doesn't test on animals and, with every purchase, Tom’s of Maine gives 10% of profits back to helping people and the planet. Lots of reasons to feel good while using Tom's of Maine.

If you want to make a #DeoSwitch too, just keep in mind, 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.
