Tom’s of Maine® Wicked Cool Deodorant for Kids

I’m happy that Tom’s of Maine is always coming up with kid-friendly items my kids adore. This back-to-school season, my kids are using Tom’s of Maine®  Wicked Cool toothpaste and deodorant for kids. We love that the products are made without any artificial colors, flavors, fragrances or preservatives, and they are not tested on animals.  Tom’s of Maine® has been a trusted name in natural personal care for over 48 years and as well as a trusted name in my home for over 13 years. tom's of maine deodorant for kids

As my kids get older, keeping them clean has changed. Not only do we have to keep the dirt off the body, now we have to keep the BO away too. Wicked Cool Deodorant for kids is one of our new favorites! It provides 24 hour odor protection and includes no aluminum, no parabens, and no artificial fragrances.

I personally prefer the freestyle scent for boys – I’ve used it and it works on me too. My kids, even the boy, prefers the summer fun scent for girls. Neither scent is too masculine or girly which is why I think they both work for both genders.

Keeping BO away is half the battle. The other half the battle is keeping teeth clean and the mouth odor-free. The first Tom’s of Maine® product we ever used was fluoride-free toothpaste like Silly Strawberry™. My older kids have outgrown this variety, but the younger kids still like it.

Now that my kids are older, they like the Wicked Cool mild mint toothpaste.  With fluoride and non-fluoride toothpaste options, you’ll find a type of natural toothpaste from Tom’s of Maine® that you won’t worry about giving your kids. Tom’s of Maine® also has a BPA-free child-size toothbrush made with mineral-based pigments and from renewable castor oil plants.

This year, Tom’s of Maine® has partnered with the Kids in Need Foundation to donate 10,000 “Backpacks Full of Good”  to students in need. By choosing Tom’s of Maine, you are helping kids in need get needed school supplies.  You can also add an encouraging note to one student’s backpack.

  1. When I lived in the US I used Tom’s of Maine deodorant. I particularly liked that it (the roll-on version) was available in a glass container rather than plastic.
