Three of my Favorite Organic Toothpaste Brands
Toothpaste is ultimately quite a personal thing and some of what I like you may not. That said, there is a great range of healthy natural toothpaste brands out there that do not contain all of the nasty chemicals that are present in regular brands of toothpaste. Please note that some have fluoride and others do not. There is a huge debate around whether fluoride is good for you or not. I won’t go into that but I take a middle-road approach in which I think some in my toothpaste won’t do any harm and will do some good, but I respect the different views that other people may have.
My favourite organic toothpaste brands are Toms of Maine’s, Green People and Kingfisher. All these companies manufacture organic or natural toothpastes that use ingredients from the nature, and avoid harmful chemicals that could irritate the inside of the mouth.
Natural and herbal toothpaste is made with natural, sometimes certified organic ingredients. Some of the most common ingredients are baking soda, essential oils, different herbal extracts, aloe vera and myrrh. More and more people are turning to herbal toothpastes because these do not contain potentially harmful and skin irritant chemicals that are often used in normal toothpastes. Regular toothpaste also often contains synthetic flavors and other artificial substances, such as coloring agents.
Tclean teeth the natural wayom’s of Main
This is a great range of organic toothpaste that comes in enough flavors and with enough different options that most people will find what they are looking for here. You can get ones with or without fluoride and they are clearly marked. Tom’s of Main also has a range of children’s organic toothpastes with or without fluoride. They are really clear in their labels so you know exactly what you are getting and why. They generally use natural oils and herbs to give a great flavor and real mouth-fresh feeling. They also use natural-source SLS, which I don’t like. I’ve used them quite a bit and love the taste but not the SLS so now I generally use Green People organic.
Tom’s toothpastes contain myrrh and propolis, both natural substances that have healing properties and are especially good for sensitive skin. If you like a fresh minty flavor, the Cool Mint and the Spearmint flavors are both good choices.
This is a British brand so is easy to get in Europe, where I live. Their toothpaste is really fresh tasting and are free of many skin irritants such as SLS, mainly because one of the founders started the company after her 2-year-old daughter was suffering from eczema and other allergies that seemed to be triggered by preservatives in common skin-care products. Their toothpaste has no preservatives, sweetener or other artificial flavor and uses herbs such as Myrrh to kill germs naturally. It is also good for healing gum infections and mouth ulcers. The toothpastes also contain vitamin C, and they are free of fluoride, artificial sweeteners and sodium lauryl or laureth sulfates.
Green People produces a range of natural skin care and body care products, and its toothpastes are suitable for adults and children.

Kingfisher is a long-standing herbal toothpaste manufacturer that has had its toothpaste approved by the British Dental Health Foundation, and its products are available around the world as well as online. The Fluoride Free Mint and the Fluoride Free Fennel pastes are part of a range of products that also includes a Baking Soda paste and a Tea Tree toothpaste. Kingfisher’s products are not tested on animals, and they are also free of genetically modified ingredients.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate Free Toothpaste
An increasing number of customers are now turning to herbal toothpastes and especially SLS free products, after several concerns about the safety of sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS). Commonly used in many body care products, shampoos, soaps and shower gels, this ingredient is responsible for the lathering effect, but it is a harsh chemical that may irritate the skin and may also have other harmful properties. Natural, organic and herbal toothpastes are available from natural health stores and many large supermarkets, and they can also be easily ordered online.
