The Best Natural Toothpaste: A Cheat Sheet

best natural toothpaste cheat sheet

Good dental hygiene is important for your overall health. But it's important to realise that your mouth is one of the most absorbent parts of your body. Even though you spit your toothpaste out, you're still ingesting some of the ingredients.

This cheat sheet, and our natural toothpaste reviews will help you choose the best toothpaste for you and your family.

Introduction

You should be cleaning your teeth twice a day, in the morning, and before bed. That's a lot of toothpaste over a lifetime.

In this cheat sheet, I'm aiming to help you work out which natural toothpaste is best for you and your family.

Why Use Natural Toothpaste?

Choosing a toothpaste with natural ingredients doesn't mean that you're going to have cavities in your teeth, or that your teeth won't be as clean as if you use 'normal' toothpaste.

With many natural toothpastes, you'll get just as good a clean and you won't be ingesting toxins or impurities.

Brushing your teeth with a toothbrush does most of the physical act of cleaning, and you could do this with just water, removing leftover food from your teeth. To eliminate bacteria that cause gum disease and halitosis, you need a toothpaste that contains ingredients to help with this. If you're wondering, is natural toothpaste effective? The answer is yes. There are plenty of natural toothpastes that will do a great job of cleaning your teeth, preventing gum disease, and freshening your breath.

Toxic Toothpaste Ingredients

What's actually in toothpaste?

I've written a whole article about toothpaste ingredients, but here's a quick rundown of what you'll find in toothpaste:

  • Abrasives (to help your toothbrush remove food, plaque and stains)
  • Humectants and binders (to keep your toothpaste moist and stop it from going hard in the tube)
  • Detergents (to help loosen food and to foam up, which isn't necessary, but people seem to like)
  • Flavours (either synthetic or natural, to make your toothpaste taste good)
  • Preservatives (so that your toothpaste doesn't go off or harbour harmful bacteria)
  • Colourings (titanium dioxide to make it white, or other colours for tooth gels and toothpastes)
  • Therapeutics (like fluoride to help prevent tooth decay)

So which toxic ingredients in toothpaste should you avoid?

  • Artificial colours
  • Artificial flavours
  • Artificial sweeteners
  • Carrageenan
  • Diethanolamine (DEA)
  • Fluoride
  • Microbeads
  • Parabens
  • Propylene glycol
  • Sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) and Sodium laureth sulphate (SLES)
  • Sodium lauroyl sarcosinate
  • Titanium dioxide nanoparticles
  • Triclosan

There are also some ingredients that might look scary, but are actually good:

  • Activated charcoal (an abrasive that also helps remove surface stains on teeth)
  • Hydroxyapatite (acts like fluoride to remineralise teeth)
  • Potassium nitrate (used to help combat tooth sensitivity, and is considered the safest active ingredient for sensitive teeth. Note that this is not the same as potassium nitrite)
  • Titanium dioxide (in it's non nano form is harmless, so this is one you don't need to worry about)
  • Xylitol (sweetener that also seems to be beneficial in preventing tooth decay)

Top Five Natural Favourites

What is the best natural toothpaste to use? There are lots of great natural toothpaste options, and trying to keep it to just five is hard for me! I've tried dozens of toothpastes over the years, but these are the ones that I keep coming back to:

Dr Brite Mineral toothpaste with charcoal: I don’t know how they do it, but this is an activated charcoal toothpaste that doesn't make a mess of your bathroom.

Dr Bronner: my family’s favourite. They say it’s the closest to a ‘normal’ toothpaste, and I like it because it tastes great and gets your teeth shiny clean.

Lavera Basis Toothpaste - Mint Whitening Toothpaste: my pick for the best vegan toothpaste with fluoride. It can be hard to find a fluoride toothpaste with natural ingredients, and this one is great.

The Humble Co Charcoal Toothpaste: if you’re into charcoal toothpaste, but want fluoride, this is awesome. Great natural ingredients and this company gives back by providing dental care to children in need.

Weleda Salt Toothpaste: my all time favourite. I've been using this for years, and although I mix it up (I usually have at least two toothpastes on the go) this is the one that I'm never without. Love, love, love!

Best of Toothpaste for Children and Adult, Reviewed A-Z

A Bit Hippy Remineralising Natural Toothpaste

A Bit Happy Remineralising Natural Toothpaste

Comments: This one looks pretty good apart from a couple of things. I'm not super keen on added flavour, even if it is 'natural', but that's a small quibble. The sodium lauroyl sarcosinate is a penetration enhancer, and there can be concerns with nitrosamine contamination. This ingredient only scores a 3 in EWG, so it's not a big concern.

Fluoride: No

EWG Ratings: not listed

Ingredients: Aqua, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice, Calcium Carbonate, Caprylic Capric Triglyceride, Xylitol, Hydroxyapatite, Sclerotium Gum, Natural Flavour, Sodium N-Lauroylsarcosinate, Cinnamomum Zeylanicum (Cinnamon) Leaf Oil, Stevia Rebaudiana Leaf Extract.

A Bit Hippy Advanced Natural Toothpaste

A Bit Hippy Advanced Natural Toothpaste

Comments: Although the ingredients are different to the other A Bit Hippy toothpaste, my comments are the same. All in all, another reasonable choice.

Fluoride: No

EWG Ratings: not listed

Ingredients: Sorbitol, Calcium Carbonate, Tapioca, Aqua, Sodium Bicarbonate, Hydroxyapatite, Xylitol, Sodium N-Laurylsarcosinate, Natural Mint Flavour, Natural Lime Flavour, Xanthan Gum, Stevia Rebaudiana Leaf Extract.

Aloe Dent Whitening Aloe Vera Toothpaste - Fluoride Free

Aloe Dent Whitening Aloe Vera Toothpaste - Fluoride Free 

Comments: It's the sodium hydroxymethylglycinate that stands out on this one for me. It's a formaldehyde releaser and scores a 6 in EWG. Even though it's in small quantities, it's enough for me not to recommend this one. There's also sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, which is a penetration enhancer, and there can be concerns with nitrosamine contamination. This ingredient only scores a 3 in EWG, so it's not a big concern.

Fluoride: No

EWG Ratings: not listed

Ingredients: Glycerin (Veg Origin), Sorbitol, Hydrated Silica, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera), Aqua, Xylitol, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Pvp, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Menthol, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Oil, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, Citric Acid, Ci75810 (Colour), Limonene*. *Natural Constituent Of Essential Oils.

Auromere Ayurvedic Herbal Toothpaste - Original Licorice

Auromere Ayurvedic Herbal Toothpaste - Original Licorice


Shop Here

Comments: This ayurvedic herbal toothpaste scores a 4 in EWG because of the clove and cinnamon, which can be an issue if you use too much of them. But there's not a lot of them in here, and I'm fine with all the other ingredients, too.

Other Flavours: Auromere Ayurvedic Herbal Toothpaste - Cardamom Fennel

Cedel Toothpaste Sensitive

Cedel Toothpaste Sensitive

Comments: There's a few ingredients that stand out here. The SLS, which is an irritant. There's saccharin, which doesn't score high in EWG, but it's an artificial sweetener and I always avoid those, and paraffin which is a petrochemical. Plus there's artificial flavour. All in all, not one that I would use.

Comments: This one also has sodium lauroyl sarcosinate. As I mentioned above, it's a penetration enhancer, and there can be concerns with nitrosamine contamination. This ingredient only scores a 3 in EWG, so it's not really worth worrying about. Do also note that there's carrageenan, which may make it unsuitable for kids if they're not spitting toothpaste out yet. All in all, a reasonable choice with good ingredients.

Doterra On Guard Natural Toothpaste

Doterra On Guard Natural Toothpaste

Comments: This toothpaste has carrageenan (so probably not suitable for children who aren't yet spitting toothpaste), sodium lauroyl sarcosinate and titanium dioxide. None of these are big concerns, but they may add up to a product you don't want to use.

There's also wintergreen essential oil. It's in very small quantities, but it's not suitable for children or pregnant women.
