Crystal Deodorant Roll On
Bacteria hiding in our armpits is the cause of underarm odor. Mineral Confidence Deodorant Roll-On targets those odor-causing bacteria with simple, natural ingredients derived straight from nature. Tom’s of Maine is dedicated to delivering effective deodorant products that work just as hard as you do. When they call their ingredients “naturally-sourced” it means the ingredients didn’t change much at all between sourcing and inclusion in the product formulas. When Tom’s of Maine refers to “naturally derived” it means the ingredient comes from nature but undergoes some additional (yet minimal) processing before being utilized in their personal care product formulas. This is only to ensure an ingredient’s safety or effectiveness. Mineral Confidence Crystal Deodorant Roll-On delivers everything Tom’s of Maine aims to provide… excellent odor protection, fresh skin free from irritation, and a more natural approach to personal care.
Tom's of Maine Ingredients
Mineral Confidence Deodorant Roll-On contains minimal naturally-derived ingredients, no animal ingredients, and no artificial fragrances or preservatives. In this 24-hour odor protection deodorant crystal, you’ll find nothing but water for consistency, potassium alum derived from bauxite for deodorancy, xanthan gum derived from vegetables as a gelling agent to help the deodorant adhere to your skin, purified zinc citrate straight from the Earth for increased deodorancy effectiveness, and benzoic acid which is a natural preservative derived from apples or cinnamon leaves and bark. Odor protection doesn’t get much more natural than that!
Do Crystal Deodorants Really Work?
Crystal deodorants, such as this one by Tom’s of Maine, do work effectively by killing the odor-causing bacteria that live under your armpits. Mineral Confidence works by depositing odor-and-bacteria-busting minerals on your delicate armpit skin without causing irritation. There is no need for harsh chemicals or potentially harmful ingredients like aluminum! However, the one thing that newcomers to natural or crystal deodorants say is that they sometimes smell worse for a few days between switching from conventional deodorant to natural deodorant. This is due to a detox period, especially when changing from an antiperspirant to a natural deodorant. Your armpits need to clear out the excess toxins from the unnatural products you’ve been using. Give it a few days to resolve itself and after that you’ll be glad you made the switch. Another perk: crystal deodorants don’t leave residue and go on invisibly!
Does Crystal Deodorant Have Baking Soda?
Baking soda causes skin irritation for some people, especially in the delicate underarm area. Most crystal deodorants do not contain baking soda, although you’ll want to check each brand’s ingredients to make sure. Tom’s of Maine Mineral Confidence Crystal Deodorant Roll-On does not contain any baking soda. In fact, its formula is hypoallergenic and made simply with naturally-derived potassium alum and zinc citrate that help fight against odor-causing bacteria.
Is Tom's of Maine Cruelty Free?
Yes! All of Tom’s of Maine products are cruelty free. They believe in finding natural solutions to everyday personal care problems, and being cruel to animals just doesn’t fit their values.

Inspired by Nature
Tom's of Maine was founded with the belief that "both human beings and nature have inherent worth and deserve our respect." Ask their employees and you'll soon find that many of them don't just respect the natural world - they love it. They are a company of kayakers and campers, hikers and mountain bikers and parents who poke around in tidal pools and take walks in the forest with their kids.
That's why caring for the environment is something they have focused on since 1970. This value comes to life in the way they select ingredients, their manufacturing practices at their Sanford, Maine plant, and the packaging they use.
"The ingredients inside your natural personal care products matter, and we believe that you have a right to know what they are, what purpose they serve, the natural source they come from and how are they are made. You want to choose the products that you consider to be the best for your wellbeing, your community, and your planet, and we want to support you in making an informed decision."
- Joanne Murphy. Stewardship Committe Leader
Tom's knows you care about the ingredients in their products. They have shared their purpose and source since 1981 - first on their product packaging and now on their website. Tom's Stewardship Model defines their view of natural, sustainable, and responsible, and guides you through the process of ingredient sourcing and formula creation.
"When Tom and Kate Chappell, our cofounders, mixed up their first batches of products, they used a Kitchen Aid mixer. We've come a long way since then! Today, many of our products are made at our manufacturing facility right here in Sanford, Maine. We constantly strive to improve our sustainability practices at every level of our operations."
- Brian Peaody, Tom's of Maine Fulfillment Team Leader
Tom's knows you want to lighten your own footprint and it inspires them. Since 1970, the sustainability of their practices is something they've seriously considered. Examples of their progress include:
Since 2006, 100% of the electricity they use at their manufacturing facility has been offset by investing in wind energy credits supplied by Green-e
Their manufacturing facility and warehouse uses sensor-controlled fluorescent energy-saving fixtures
Tom's recycles toothpaste tubes, cardboard, folding cartons, mixed paper and even challenging items like shrink wrap
Tom's of Maine History
In 1968, Tom and Kate Chappell left Philadelphia, where Tom worked for an insurance company, and moved to rural Kennebunk, Maine. As part of their goal to simplify their lives, they sought out natural, unprocessed foods and, unadulterated products.
Unable to find natural personal care options for themselves and their children, in 1970 Tom and Kate decided to create and sell their own. They began with a $5,000 loan from a friend and the philosophy that their products would not harm the environment.
From this small start, Tom's of Maine grew and developed into a different kind of company, one based on the belief that people and nature deserve respect. Over the years their product line moved from non-phosphate laundry detergent to natural personal care products such as the first natural toothpaste (1975) and deodorant (1976).
They've grown in size and in 2006, became part of the Colgate-Palmolive Company. But their simple, direct approach hasn't changed one bit: they listen to what their customers want (and don't want) in their products, they learn how it can be done, and respond with effective natural, sustainable and responsible solutions.
