Looking for an alternative to typically chemical-laden products like toothpaste? Tom's of Maine, to the rescue! Tom's of Maine believes that both human beings and nature have inherent worth and deserve our respect, and they believe in products that are safe, effective, and made of natural ingredients.
Try one of Tom's 15 different varieties of natural toothpaste, with or without naturally-sourced fluoride, like Whole Care, which fights cavities and tartar, and whitens gently without bleaching ingredients or harsh abrasives. Or, try their kids' toothpaste. Your kids will love the all-natural strawberry or orange-mango taste, and you'll love that they're brushing each day with the only natural kids fluoride toothpaste ADA-accepted to help prevent cavities.
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 the product line moved from non-phosphate laundry detergent to natural personal care products such as the first natural toothpaste (1975) and deodorant (1976). Tom's of Maine has grown in size and in 2006, they became part of the Colgate-Palmolive Company. But their simple, direct approach hasn't changed one bit: Tom's listens to what their customers want (and don't want) in their products, learns how it can be done, and responds with effective natural (and sustainable) solutions.
