Aluminum Free Deodorant from Toms of Maine

September 11, 2008

Tom’s of Maine has a new line of Sensitive Care aluminum-free deodorants. The patent-pending product is available in three variants: bay-lime, cucumber-grapefruit and fragrance-free. In keeping with its long history and commitment to sustainable business practices, Tom’s is using an environmentally-friendly method called supercritical extraction to draw out the most effective elements from hops, which inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria and prevent odor naturally and effectively. The chamomile is extracted in a similar way and is used to soothe sensitive skin. Supercritical extraction does not generate chemical waste, according to the company. The new products are dermatologist-tested for sensitive skin and proven to be safe and gentle; they’re aluminum-free and as with all Tom’s of Maine products no animal products or animal testing is used. In addition, the deos are Kosher- and Halal-certified.
