Tom’s of Maine Deodorant for Men – Beat the Sweat with Deep Forest

September 15, 2018 Connor Morgan 14 Comments

Looking for a high quality men’s deodorant that smells great, lasts long, and won’t irritate your skin? You’re not alone! Year after year men continue to use brand name deodorants that simply don’t live up to their expectations. Many of the most popular, widely used deodorants contain harmful chemicals leading to underarm irritation and toxin absorption through skin pores. While some consumers are skeptical about the quality and performance of all natural deodorants, many are also starting to understand the harmful effects of the deodorants they’ve been using for years and considering switching to all natural deodorant.

Of course there are many brands and types of natural deodorant currently on the market and some are better than others. If you’re considering trying out an all natural deodorant let me make one suggestion that may truly change your life and silence any doubt you ever had about making the change – Tom’s of Maine Deodorant for Men.

Tom’s of Maine Deodorants

Tom’s of Maine offers a wide variety of all natural deodorants for both men and women. Their men’s line focuses on long-lasting odor protection with masculine fragrances that are 100% plant derived and safe on sensitive skin. Currently Tom’s offers a variety of manly scents such as “North Woods“, “Mountain Spring“, and “Deep Forest.” Tom’s also offers fragrance-free deodorant and a whole host of other scents that, although not specifically part of the men’s line, work great for men and women alike. Tom’s deodorants are sold in a variety of application styles ranging from conventional stick deodorants to crystal roll-ons and even deodorant soap bars. All of Tom’s of Maine deodorants are created cruelty-free (no animal testing) and do not use any artificial colors, fragrances, or preservatives. They are packaged in partnership with Terracycle to maximize both recycled content AND recyclability of the deodorant packaging itself. These are truly high quality deodorants that you can feel good about using!

Step Into the Deep Forest

If I had to use one and only one type of deodorant for the rest of my life, hands down this would be it. Here are some reasons why Tom’s of Maine “Deep Forest” men’s deodorant is my go to:

Great Fragrance – For a start, it smells amazing! Having grown up in New England I spent a lot of time hiking and exploring the woods. Deep Forest captures the smell of woodsy spice that I can easily recall from my youth. This masculine smell also has a touch of soapy/minty freshness to it that is really refreshing. It’s not overpowering, just pleasantly crisp and woodsy.

Long Lasting – I found that this deodorant does last for a long time but is less fragrant after 24 hours. I personally don’t like to wear overly strong smelling products so this deodorant is perfect for me. It lasts all day, even when sweating a lot, and doesn’t leave me constantly feeling like I am in a cloud of deodorant scent throughout the day. I’ve found that a single stick, applied once per day (occasionally twice depending on the amount of sweating/showering during the day) lasts about 5-6 weeks.

Non-Irritating – I tend to have moderately sensitive skin and value personal health products that don’t cause irritation. With a few mainstream synthetic deodorants I’ve experienced some irritation under my arms in the past. I’ve never had that type of reaction l with ANY of Tom’s deodorants. Not only are they non-irritating, but also they have a comfortably smooth consistency that doesn’t feel sticky or wet upon application. I’ve also noticed that they wash off well after a full days use. Some other deodorants I’ve tried have been difficult to clean off the skin between uses.

Great Value – Most of Tom’s deodorants are available at retail stores or online for under $5. For me, this is a really great price point that I am happy to pay for a product of this quality. I’ve tried many deodorants going for twice that amount (or more!) that honestly don’t smell as nice, last as long, or feel as comfortable on my skin. I also find value in the recycled materials used for packing and the recyclability of this product. You can currently get a 3 pack online for only $12.87 when you order through Click here to get your Tom’s Deep Forest Deodorant now.

Aluminum & Your Skin

Many widely sold deodorants contain a multitude of chemicals that can be harmful to your body and cause skin irritation. Some of the most commonly used chemicals are parabens, aluminum compounds, DEA, triclosan, and TEA. Tom’s ingredients are naturally derived in accordance with their Stewardship Model. The company is completely transparent about the ingredients they use and how they work. With Tom’s deodorants you can be sure to avoid exposing your body to any of these toxins commonly used in many other commercial men’s deodorants.

Personally I have been most grateful for the immediate benefits of using aluminum-free deodorants. Although some research has suggested links between aluminum levels in the body and Alzheimer’s disease, the more immediate concern for me is it’s pore-clogging qualities. Aluminum acts as a sort of sweat-plug which impedes one of your body’s natural methods of toxin secretion – sweating. This is not only bad for your physical health but can lead to very uncomfortable skin irritation.

About Tom’s

Founded in 1970 by Tom and Kate Chappell with a mission to create healthy, natural personal care products, Tom’s of Maine continues to be one of the most trusted brands in natural care. Here are a few reasons why Tom’s of Maine is a company worthy of your support:

Transparency – Tom’s of Maine is completely transparent about all of the ingredients they use. They openly share where ingredients are sourced, what they do, and how they are made while encouraging individuals to make their own choices based on what they feel is right for themselves and their family.

Giving Back – The company donates 10% of their product sales to non-profit organizations that support health, education, and the environment. They also encourage employees to use 5% of their paid time to volunteer for causes of their own choice.

Sustainability – Tom’s of Maine is committed to implementing sustainable business practices to protect the planet and future generations. In partnership with Terracycle, they work to maximize the amount of recycled materials used in their products as well as maximize the recyclability of their packaging.

Don’t Take My Word For It

The bottom line is that personal care is just that – personal. When it comes to you and the decisions you make regarding your own body, YOU are captain of the ship. I highly encourage you to do your own independent research about the personal care products you are using and consider the benefits of trying out some alternatives. For me, the switch to all natural deodorant has been an immensely good one. With high quality, safe, eco-friendly products like Tom’s of Maine deodorant for men I am happy to say I have never even looked back since switching. I hope you found this article helpful and I appreciate you taking the time to learn more about the benefits of all natural deodorant.

  1. I like this product already.

    The attitude and mission of the Tom’s of Main label are already convincing me. I hate all these chemical skin “care” products that either make your skin addicted or just make things worse for the future.

    I wonder where these deodorants are sold, I haven’t seen any so far.

    1. Hi Stefan,
      Thanks for your interest in Tom’s deodorant! You can find a retailer that sells near you on their Where To Buy page. It’s also sold on Amazon if you prefer shopping online. I hope you get yourself some and experience for yourself the many benefits of all natural deodorant!

      Cheers 🙂

  2. This was a very informative and excellent article!

    I was not aware of how many harmful chemicals there are in the mainstream deodorants. The fact that top brand deodorants have been linked to Alzheimer’s disease is scary.

    I do know that it has been hard to find deodorants that last long enough and that don’t irritate your skin. I feel that all natural deodorants are a great alternative for well being and the environment.

    Thanks Connor!

    1. Hi Jay,
      Thanks for your feedback! I am glad you found the article beneficial and educational. It’s pretty amazing once you dig a little deeper into the ingredients of many personal care products and understand their impact on your health and the environment. I hope you are able to try some all natural deodorant for yourself and experience the many benefits it has to offer!

      Cheers 🙂

  3. Oh dude, you should see me in the gym !! My shirts are so wet when i am done with my 2 Hour work out ! I mean thats how i know i am doing what i am suppose to do 😀 luckily i don’t have that issue throughout the day. I am so grateful that people make products like this, because it can get really embarrassing when you produce so much sweat, i mean its not like i am trying to do that, it is just how my body works… SO again thank you very much for introducing this product to me !

    1. Hi John,
      Wow, sounds like you are putting in some serious work at the gym! That’s great! I too tend to sweat quite a lot so it’s difficult to find aluminum free deodorant that actually works. I would say that Tom’s provides adequate sweat absorption but isn’t quite as effective as aluminum or synthetic anti-perspirants in terms of sweat prevention. On the flip side, sweating is actually a natural process and a good way for your body to shed toxins so I find Tom’s to be a good solution. The trick is to just reapply it as needed, if you happen to have a particularly sweaty workout you can apply some afterwards to help you out until you can shower. Thanks for the positive feedback, good luck with the workout hustle!

      Cheers 🙂

  4. Nowadays when you buy personal products you need to not only think about yourself but also about how damaging the product was to make on the environment and of course animals. 

    I am glad to read that more and more companies are gowing green and also thinking about the health of the consumer by using non toxic and natural ingredients. 

    I wonder if Tom’s makes a deodorant for women, or can you recommend an equivalent.

    1. Hi Michel,
      Thanks for your interest and question. Yes, Dom’s makes numerous wonderful deodorants for women. We will be publishing an article all about some of our favorite women’s deodorant this week.

      Take care,


  5. That’s really interesting. Nowadays a lot of cosmetics are just not natural. I value natural cosmetics because our health must be a top priority but not for the money only. 

    Do you have more detailed specifications of Tom’s of Maine Deodorants of ingredients? 

    I would like to see samples of your product or how it looks if possible.



  6. Sound like a product for me to buy for my husband and son’s, Connor. Animal friendly. Environment friendly. Skin friendly. And the company is world friendly too. I love to buy from companies who are completely responsible and Eco-friendly. Thank you for introducing me to Tom’s of Maine and his company. You may send me more info about where to buy this. I hope they can ship to the Netherlands. I am always looking for useful and environment friendly stuff to give men on their birthday.


    1. Greetings Loes,

Best of luck in getting your hands on some for your husband and son or for yourself! Let us know how it goes!

      Many thanks,


  7. Never realized that other deodorants are using such harmful ingredients, it’s quite astonishing how some companies can sacrifice people’s healthy in the name of money. The use of Parabens as you said is not acceptable, this chemical has many side effects and has been found present in breast tumors.

    Also, testing products on animals gives a clear picture that the manufacturers themselves have no confidence in their products, why should I trust the product as a mere customer.

    Thank you so much for such great info, I will have to switch to Tom’s of Maine Deodorants.

    1. Greetings Ngonidzashe,
      I am so happy to hear you are also considering making the switch to Tom’s. You are right that it is truly astonishing at the chemicals used in many commercial products and the companies having no problem with compromising peoples healthy to sell a product. Let us know how your experience with Tom’s deodorant is if you do make the switch.

      Cheers 🙂
