Empowering a naturally healthy life - for our family and yours - for over 45 years. When Tom and Kate Chappell moved to Maine and started making natural personal care products, they were guided by two simple philosophies.
* First, that it was possible to make effective personal care products that were free from artificial flavors, fragrances, sweeteners, colors and preservatives.
* And second, that businesses should be good corporate citizens working to care for the planet and communities. These same philosophies guide us to this day. Tom's of Maine products - including toothpaste, deodorant, mouthwash, bar soap, body wash, lotions and lip balms - are sold across the United States and Canada. And because we are so committed to giving back, we donate 10% of our profits to charitable organizations, and our employees can use 5% of their paid time volunteering for causes they are passionate about.
