Tom’s of Maine: Our Journey To A New Beginning

Our journey to Tom’s of Maine® products was born, literally, into the world as a squalling 6.5 pounds baby boy.  I was hoping our last child would be a girl, but we had another boy!

Moms of all boys, you feel my pain don’t you? But despite that small slight, and just barely there disappointment, I still love him to pieces. Like most babies they can come with all sorts of surprises and, unfortunately, they don’t come with a set of instructions either.

Our Zayd’n was born with mild eczema, and of course again like most young parents I didn’t know what that meant or how to properly deal with it. My pediatrician strongly recommended Tom’s of Maine® Baby Shampoo & Wash and I shot back with…”Tom’s of Who?” We both laughed. But honestly I had never heard of it and, therefore, I was a little skeptical.

My doctor reassured me; she said that it was a great product and more than likely it would work for my little boy, and if not we would try something else. But we never got a chance to try something else because we didn’t need to. Our baby’s dry skin cleared up and breakouts seemed not to be a problem anymore. All was well in the Worthey household.

But a funny thing happened. I was so pleased with the results that I started using other Tom’s of Maine® products, like the Tom’s of Maine® toothbrush and mouthwash.  My husband and I love the Tom’s of Maine® Simply White® Clean Mint Cavity Protection Toothpaste and our boys, especially our oldest boy loves the Tom’s of Maine® Silly Strawberry® Anticavity Toothpaste. According to Zayd’n apparently the Silly Strawberry tastes great. I haven’t tried it, but I am going to take his word. And because of the “taste” great factor, our boys don’t complain about brushing their teeth. And as a parent that’s a good feeling, knowing your kids enjoy taking care of their teeth all because they enjoy the product. Major points.

Here’s a list of the thing you won’t find in Tom’s of Maine® products:

    • No Artificial Colors
    • No Artificial Flavors or Fragrances
    • No Artificial Preservatives (EDTA, Formaldehyde or Parabens, etc.)
    • No Animal Ingredients
    • No Animal Testing

But for us there’s something bigger in play as to why Tom’s of Maine® is a good fit for our family. Our twins are on the autism spectrum, and with that punch in the gut diagnosis came the heightened concern, awareness and mission to use more naturally made, sourced and produced products. Yes, this was major. but in the end our families health and safety is priceless.

We’re able to stop by our local Walmart and pick up all of our Tom’s of Maine® products:

  • Tom’s of Maine® Simply White® Clean Mint Cavity Protection Toothpaste, 4.7oz
  • Tom’s of Maine® Silly Strawberry® Anticavity Toothpaste, 4.2oz

You can head over to the Personal Care section of Walmart to find these products as well:

    Such a great product, we always use Tom’s. I have even used on my baby when she was younger, and we have not had any issues.

    I am a fan of those Tom’s products. I’ve only tried the dental products but the other bathroom products sound awesome too.

    I’ve had several friends tell me they wont use any other toothpaste, and that they love Toms. I guess I really should try it. Even our teenager says it’s healthier.

    Sounds like a great product especially for people with sensitive skin, etc. It’s nice that we now have options like this.

    Its soo nice to know that there are more and more companies out there innovating products in such a way that they care more about saving the environment. Less carbon foot print and promoting animal welfare! I would support and patronize Toms of Maine products anytime!

    I don’t think we get this brand in the UK. But it looks like a great way to encourage little ones.

    Now that I think about it, I haven’t really bought toothpaste in months. It just always seems to be here. One time, my friend got a buttload cheap and discovered that the taste activated her gag reflex, so she gave it to us.

      Oh, great way to score toothpaste for free. I have always purchased other brands at a very low, low cost. However, we are looking for more natural, new products to try and so far like Tom’s of Maine! Thanks for stopping by!

    I love the Tom’s oral hygiene line. Mouthwash and flouride-free toothpastes are wonderful. I am not a fan of their deoderants however. There’s some sort of irritant in there. I know several people who have had trouble with it. On another note- I also wanted my youngest son to be a girl- ah well. I can’t imagine another person in my life now. He’s perfect 🙂

    These days, I think what ISN’T in the products we use is just as important as what IS. Our family loves Tom’s of Maine!

    I love their toothpaste, especially the ones that are fluoride-free! I’m not sure if I have tried their peppermint flavored toothpaste, though – just the Propolis & Myrrh.

    My family started using Tom’s of Maine products when my children were babies. It’s been a great addition to our natural routine! #client
