History of Tom's of Maine

Tom's of Maine is a brand that was founded in 1970 by Tom and Kate Chappell in Kennebunk, Maine. The company started with a commitment to producing natural personal care products, such as toothpaste and deodorant, using environmentally friendly and sustainable practices. Over the years, Tom's of Maine gained a loyal following for its dedication to natural ingredients, transparency in product labeling, and corporate social responsibility.

In 2006, the brand was acquired by Colgate-Palmolive, a move that allowed Tom's of Maine to expand its reach while still maintaining its core values and product integrity. Despite the acquisition, Tom's of Maine continues to operate with a focus on natural ingredients and environmental stewardship, staying true to its original mission of providing safe, effective, and eco-friendly personal care products.
