Tom’s of Maine is a leading natural products company focused on oral and personal care and I am pleased that they have provided products for review and giveaway here on Family Focus Blog.
Tom’s of Maine operates from Kennebunk, Maine. For over 40 years the company has been committed to responsible and sustainable business practices. In fact, they developed natural personal care products such as the first natural toothpaste (1975) and deodorant (1976). I know that growing up, my mom was always shopping in health food stores and I saw and used the Tom’s of Maine brand many times. When I was offered the chance to share Tom’s of Maine on Family Focus Blog, I was excited to shine a spotlight on a company that produces great natural products and is committed to reducing environmental impact and improving sustainability each year.
Tom’s of Maine Natural Personal Care Review:
I received several Tom’s of Maine products to review. One of my personal favorites was the Tom’s of Maine Long Lasting Deodorant. I really like using natural deodorants because I feel like it is important to let your body sweat and naturally detox but I don’t want to smell. That is why I dig Tom’s of Maine Long Lasting Deodorant because it glides on smooth and clear, the Beautiful Earth scent is soft and pleasing, and it works with just natural ingredients to keep me smelling fresh. I love it.
Tom’s of Maine Long Lasting Deodorant: “Hops inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria. Sourced from castor beans and the mineral zinc, zinc ricinoleate is known to help trap odor molecules and absorb bad smells. Natural fragrance helps mask odor.”
Tom’s of Maine also makes great soap. Their bar soap formula leaves your skin clean and fresh without drying out my skin. This is a premium concern for me because I am prone to dry skin. The soap beauty bars are enriched with moisturizing olive oil and natural vitamin E. In fact, the Tom’s of Maine Natural Beauty Bar is clinically proven to maintain the moisture of your skin with every use.
I like that I can trust the performance of Tom’s of Maine products “without the artificial or synthetic ingredients that you don’t want on your skin today, or in your world tomorrow.” Tom’s of Maine products are free from artificial colors, artificial fragrances, artificial preservatives, artificial preservatives (such as EDTA, formaldehyde, and parabens), gluten, and phthalates.
Tom’s of Maine is also committed to non-animal-testing models and is free of animal products. Just one example: glycerin, used in toothpastes and soaps, is often made from animal ingredients, but Tom’s of Maine is vegetable-based.
I was already familiar with Tom’s of Maine toothpaste as I have been using it for my kids and myself for years. I had not tried their floss however and I liked it very much- I like the thick flat string and the great natural spearmint flavor. I also tried the Tom’s of Maine Naturally Clean Toothbrush. Honestly, why buy any other kind of toothbrush when this one has a recyclable plant-based handle that is made from renewable castor oil plants instead of petroleum and is recyclable through the TerraCycle® collection program? Seriously, the Tom’s of Maine Naturally Clean Toothbrush is very reasonably priced and with the angled neck and multi-height bristles it is cleans effectively while being from BPA and a positive environmental choice. I LOVE the Naturally Clean Toothbrush!
