Tom's debuts aluminum-free deodorants

KENNEBUNK Tom’s of Maine, a maker of natural personal care products, has announced the launch of its new line of Sensitive Care aluminum-free deodorants:

Bay-Lime, Cucumber-Grapefruit and Fragrance-Free. The products are Kosher and Halal certified.

The company uses 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. The chamomile is extracted in a similar way and is used to soothe sensitive skin. According to the company, supercritical extraction does not generate chemical waste.

Tom’s of Maine products and packaging are designed to be sustainable and recyclable. Each year, the company uses packaging made of 100 percent recycled paperboard.
