Tom’s of Maine Soap

August 14, 2009

Toms of Maine Unscented Moisturizing Body BarLooking for an all-natural, better-for-you soap that is gentle on your skin and the environment?  Look no further than eco-standout Tom’s of Maine’s Natural Moisturizing Body Bar.

Toms of Maine’s Unscented Natural Moisturizing Body Bar is exactly what the name says – no smell, all natural and leaves your skin soft and clean.

The ingredients are:

  • Coconut and Palm soaps
  • Glycerin (Vegetable Oil derived)
  • Vitamin E
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Olive Oil
  • Rosemary Extract
  • Ascorbyl palmitate (from Vitamin C and palm oil)
  • Chamomile Oil

Notice that all ingredients are all natural and not animal-derived.  Many traditional and conventional soaps use tallow (made from beef fat), mineral oil (made from petroleum products) or artificial fragrances (which can contain endocrine system disrupting phthalates).

There’s no synthetic detergents or artificial colors, fragrances or preservatives.  And yet, it works!  This soap is great.  It lathers well, leaves skin soft and supple and has just about no scent, which is important to anyone who has allergies to scents and fragrances.

The soap also comes in Calendula and Lavender fragrances.

Tom’s of Maine’s Natural Moisturizing Body Bar receives a highly impressive score of 2 on the EWG’s Cosmetic Safety Database (1 is the best and 10 is the worst) and Tom’s of Maine has signed the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) Compact for Safe Cosmetics.

Tom’s of Maine has been making some great, all natural products for the past 35 years, long before it was in fashion to do so.

Tom’s of Maine could show the rest of the personal care industry a thing or two on how to make a high quality, highly effective product without the need for chemicals or animal products.  Why not give them a try?

Worried about switching to a Tom’s of Maine product?  Don’t be.  The company has an amazing product guarantee in which they’ll refund your purchase price PLUS shipping if you’re not completely satisfied. Check out their website for more information.

Why It’s Better For Your Health:  Tom’s of Maine soaps don’t expose your skin to harsh chemicals such as petroleum based products, phthalates and synthetic preservatives. Since your skin can absorb up to 60% of what you put on it, it’s important to choose only healthier, natural based ingredients.

If you’re having a reaction to synthetic and harsh chemicals in soaps, such as rashes, eczema, dry skin, flaky skin, etc., switching to a natural-based soap can help relieve or even clear up your symptoms.

Why It’s Better For the Earth:  Using naturally renewable, plant-based ingredients reduces our reliance on petroleum-derived products and reduces the toxic environmental effects of producing and disposing of synthetic chemicals.

Tom’s of Maine’s Natural Moisturizing Body Bar is packaged in a 100% recycled paperboard box which is printed with soy ink.  The inner wrapping is biodegradable.
