Tom's Natural Deodorant Review

by Grace
(Columbus, OH)

We all know the dangers of using commercial deodorant-risks of breast cancer linked to using anti-perspirant is possibly the biggest reason to find a natural alternative to typical deodorants. I searched my local natural health-foods store and found TOM'S NATURAL DEODORANT. It's a liquid roll-on deodorant. Here are my findings:

1) THIS DEODORANT WORKS. It works even after you're stinky and sweaty-it's made of things that actually work to kill the bacteria that cause the body odor in the first place.

2)It really is natural-and they have pretty high standards of what goes into their products-they make everything from cold care products to toothpaste-which I'm going to try ASAP.

3) A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. This is a very, very, wet deodorant. You actually need to wait for it to dry a little before getting dressed. It's worth it, though!

I would buy again-I don't plan on ever using a conventional deodorant again-the risks are too high and there are healthy and safe alternatives-like Tom's Natural Deodorant!


Thank you Grace.

Below are the ingredients for Tom's of Maine Long Lasting Roll-on Deodorant Unscented:

Propylene Glycol, Water, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Leaf Juice (Aloe Barbadensis), Witch Hazel (Hamamelis Virginiana) Water (Hamamelis Virginana), Zinc Ricinoleate, Glyceryl Laurate, Zinc Citrate, Hectorite Clay, Chamomilla (Chamomilla Recutita) Flower Water Extract (Chamomilla Recutita), Coriandrum Sativum (Coriander) Seed Oil (Coriandrum Sativum), Lemongrass (Cymbopogon Schoenanthus) Oil (Cymbopogon schoenanthus)

When I checked this product on the Skin Deep Database it received a 4 or moderate safety rating mainly because of the zinc but I believe there has been some error as zinc is not in the above product. Both zinc citrate and zinc ricinolate are listed and rated safe.

Tom's of Maine also does not do animal testing.

I am a little unclear about the zinc. I had heard that it was one of the concerns with most deodorant-antipersperants, why is it believed unsafe, and by what basis is considered safe by others in light of its problems?

I'm sorry but it doesn't work for me, and I'm not even a sweaty person. By the end of the day I feel uncomfortable and my clothes definitely don't smell fresh when I take them off. I gave it a try but I have to look for a different brand.
