Natural Flavors

What are the risks?

Tom's of Maine recognizes that no two people are alike, and even with pure and natural ingredients, some individuals may develop an allergic reaction that is unique to them. If you have sensitivities to any fruits or other natural flavorings and wish to use a Tom's product that contains "other natural flavors," please call our Consumer Dialogue Team at 800-775-2388; they will help you to determine whether the ingredient you wish to avoid is present in our product. As with any product, be sure to discontinue use if you experience discomfort or other indications that the product may not be appropriate for your individual body chemistry.

What is it?

Our natural world contains so many exciting tastes and flavors. Rather than use artificial flavors or strong sweeteners, our philosophy is to use the many flavorful fruits, plants and roots that are already present on the Earth. Our products are flavored with natural ingredients like pure mint oils and fruit extracts. We believe creating a pure flavor experience is worth the effort. All of our essential oils are steam distilled, rather than chemically distilled. This is the simplest way to extract oils and poses the least risk for chemical contamination. Some oils are distilled more than once as necessary to ensure quality and unique taste and flavor profiles.

We've set high standards in defining "natural", "sustainable", and "responsible". Stewardship Model
