LaCroix is made locally, employing people across the USA. As a domestic brand, LaCroix has a lower carbon footprint than imported sparkling counterparts. Made in the USA, LaCroix asks why import your water?
LaCroix water is an American brand using water sourced from the USA.
LaCroix Sparkling Water does not contain any castoreum.
The flavors are derived from the natural essence oils extracted from the named fruit used in each of our LaCroix flavors. There are no sugars or artificial ingredients contained in, nor added to, these extracted flavors.
All LaCroix products meet the guidelines set by the FDA and are completely safe to drink. Recently, media reports have raised questions about the use of bisphenol A (BPA) by can and bottle manufacturers. While can linings may contain trace amounts of BPA to prevent spoilage and protect food and beverages from direct contact with the can, these trace amounts are virtually eliminated during the curing process. The FDA website reports on a four-year study completed in 2014 that reaffirms that BPA is safe at the current levels occurring in foods. The European Food Safety Authority also updated their approval of BPA for food contact in 2014, concluding that BPA “poses no risk to human health from foodstuffs because current exposure to the chemical is too low to cause harm”.
In addition, plastic bottled water and soft drink containers are made from a plastic known as polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which does not contain BPA.

The North American Metal Packaging Alliance also maintains a website specific to the issue of BPA in can coatings and the effort underway to find an alternative.
