Not all Tom’s of Maine products are suitable for vegans. Please always check the ingredient list of the product before making a purchase.
The majority of our products are vegan, as we have worked to find plant based alternatives for ingredients which are typically made from animal ingredients. For example, the glycerin used in many toothpastes and soaps can be an animal ingredient, while ours is plant based.tomsofmaine.com
