10 Best Natural Toothpaste Brands

Sharing the very best natural toothpastes for your family! I have used A LOT of different brands over the years and I am sharing which are my favorites, and which brand my kids love as well.

Finding the best natural toothpaste may not be high on most people’s priority list but considering we brush our teeth twice a day (I hope), it’s important to use a toothpaste that doesn’t contain harmful ingredients but also contains the right active ingredients. The world of natural toothpastes can be daunting, that’s why I’m giving you a list of ingredients to look for and the ingredients to avoid when choosing a natural toothpaste. To make the decision process even easier, I’m going to share with you a few of my favorite natural toothpaste brands.

Is natural toothpaste good for your teeth?

Just because a toothpaste has natural ingredients doesn’t always mean its effective or even good for your teeth. When it comes to a natural toothpaste, we want one that supports good oral health but does so without toxic chemicals or damaging tooth enamel. 

Here are some of the common questions I get in regards to natural toothpaste:

What’s the hype around the ingredient, hydroxyapatite?

Hydroxyapatite is a mineral that has been given high praises for its ability to fight cavities and rebuild teeth without any side effects. In fact, hydroxyapatite is already a part of our bone structure, including our teeth so our body recognizes hydroxyapatite and knows how to use it. 

When our teeth have a strong enamel they are less sensitive, and less prone to decay. Hydroxyapatite comes in two forms – synthetic and natural. From what I’ve read, synthetic is safe to use and doesn’t pose any health issues.

What’s the deal with fluoride?

Fluoride is all the rage in the conventional toothpaste world but it has come under scrutiny for the potential risks associated with it. One of the concerns is with toxicity in children since it can be found in almost every oral care product along with drinking water and even in some processed foods. (1)

If the body is not able to properly eliminate fluoride, it can accumulate in the brain, the pineal gland, teeth, and bones, causing health problems.

According to a lab study in 2019, hydroxyapatite toothpaste was as effective as fluoride in halting tooth demineralization and restoring minerals to the teeth and inhibiting the development of cavities. (2)

There are definitely ingredients I look to avoid when choosing a toxin free toothpaste for my family!

Ingredients to avoid when choosing a natural toothpaste

  • Fluoride

The fluoride ion is used in toothpastes, mouthwashes, and even in much of our water supply for its anticariogenic and antimicrobial properties in the prevention of cavities. 

  • SLS

SLS stands for Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and is a common ingredient in toothpaste along with a variety of personal care and cleaning products because it serves as a foaming agent. The foam may trick our brains into thinking that our teeth are clean, but that’s about the extent of SLS. In fact, if you are prone to canker sores, dry mouth, or just have a sensitive mouth, SLS can be irritating and make matters worse. (3)

  • Triclosan

Triclosan has been used in toothpastes for its ability to fight gingivitis. Interestingly, it was first used as a pesticide in the 1960’s and is an endocrine-disrupting chemical. The FDA banned its use in soaps and body washes in 2016 because there was no evidence that it provided any more benefit as a antimicrobial agent than soap and water. I think I’ll find other ways to win the war on gingivitis! 

  • Artificial Colors

Artificial colors as the name implies are not natural and most are derived from petroleum. Artificial dyes have been linked to hyperactivity and ADHD. An experiment on rats, demonstrated an increase in thyroid tumors with red dye #3. (4)

  • Parabens

Parabens are used as a preservative in toothpastes but they are endocrine disrupters. 

  • PEG’s

PEG or Polyethylene Glycol are petroleum-based products often used in personal care products. PEG is used to stabilize ingredients, however, it’s also in antifreeze so we’ll let you decide if you want to ingest PEG.

Infrequent exposure to these substances aren’t likely to cause heath problems, it’s the daily use and the accumulation of chemicals in our bodies that can open the door to disease and dysfunction.

Ingredients to look for in a natural toothpaste

  • Xylitol

According to Medical News Today, xylitol is a sugar alcohol, which is a type of carbohydrate and does not actually contain alcohol. Xylitol occurs naturally in small amounts in fibrous fruits and vegetables, trees, corncobs, and even the human body. (5)

  • Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal has small pores that trap toxins and prevent them from being absorbed in the body.

  • Coconut Oil

Coconut oil consists primarily of medium chain fatty acids which are antimicrobial and have antioxidant properties.

  • Essential Oils

Essentials oils are a natural and preferable option to artificial flavorings plus they have an antibacterial effect.

  • Hydroxyapatite

Hydroxyapatite is a mineral found in human bone and teeth and one of the main components of enamel.

RiseWell mineral toothpastes are wild mint flavored, fluoride-free, paraben-free, vegan and cruelty-free. There are no harsh foaming agents; SLS or sulfates. In fact, RiseWell strengthens and restores tooth enamel and has antiplaque and naturally whitening properties. They advertise that it is safe enough to eat, although I don’t recommend putting that to the test.

What I like

RiseWell doesn’t have any toxic ingredients in it like fluoride, sulfates, parabens or artificial colors or flavors. It also contains hydroxyapatite. RiseWell toothpaste has adult as well as kids’ toothpastes that are clean but also effective at strengthening teeth. I really love how Risewell doesn’t include a lot of extra ingredients in their toothpastes. They really are one of the cleanest and effective toothpastes out there after researching so many natural toothpaste brands! I’ve been using them since last year and don’t plan to stop. My kids also use their kids toothpaste and at their dental visits they’ve been cavity free! Risewell gives me fresh breath and my teeth and whole mouth feel squeaky clean after using. I can’t recommend them enough!

What I don’t like

Risewell hits ALL the marks for me when it comes to an effective natural toothpaste!

2. Boka Ela Mint Toothpaste


Ela Mint is unlike any other toothpaste, by design. It trades fluoride for nano-hydroxyapatite (n-Ha), an evolution in dentistry that’s been a gold standard in Japan for over 40-years. They complement this powerful ingredient with soothing aloe vera, bacteria-fighting xylitol, antioxidant-rich green tea and refreshing mint. 


$12.00 or $9.60 when you sign-up for a subscription directly from Boka

$11.99 on Amazon and can save 10-15% with Subscribe and Save


Water, Vegetable Glycerin, Hydrated Silica, Sorbitol Powder, Silica, Hydroxyapatite (Nano), Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Mentha Piperita Essential (Peppermint) Oil, Mentha Viridis (Spearmint) Oil, Illicium Verum (Star Anise) Oil, Gaultheria Procumberis (Wintergreen) Oil, Xylitol, Xanthan Gum, Stevia Rebaudiana Extract Powder, Methylsulfonylmethane, Aloe Barbadensis (aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Sodium Bicarbonate, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Fruit Extract, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Fruit Extract, Menthol, Elettaria Cardamomum Miniscula Seed (Cardamom), Potassium Chloride.

What I like

Boka not only has toothpastes but also toothbrushes, floss, even tongue scrapers in a variety of kits. Boba’s Ela Mint is definitely a strong toothpaste! This was the strongest one overall as far as flavor. My entire mouth felt VERY minty fresh compared to other brands.

What I don’t like

I do like the toothpaste, however, I didn’t love seeing the ingredient sodium benzoate in the ingredient list. While it can be benign, it can become carcinogenic when citric acid(also known as Vitamin C)is present. (6) It is used as a preservative in many things to prevent bacteria from spreading. When mixed with Vitamin C, exposed to light or high temperatures it can form Benzene- which is a known carcinogen. There is no citric acid in the Boka toothpaste, but I do think there is a possibility it is exposed to heat and light during manufacturing process. This makes me not want to use it. I did ask them what the glycerin was derived from since it said vegetable glycerin and they said this, “Our toothpaste contains glycerin extracted from mustard seed oil, which is naturally gluten-free. “

3. Essential Oxygen


Essential Oxygen toothpastes are planet positive, biodegradable, fluoride-free, SLS-free, alcohol-free and never tested on animals. They use the cleaning power of food grade hydrogen peroxide and essential oils to effectively whiten teeth, freshen breath while protecting enamel.

*Organic ingredient

What I like

Essential Oxygen has a three-step system called The Pristine Protocol that builds on the ten-year results of the BR | Organic Mouthwash. Essential Oxygen’s BR | Organic Toothpaste has the lowest abrasion level of any toothpaste on the market – it’s very gentle on your enamel and safe to use 3x daily. 

What I didn’t like

While this toothpaste is gentle, I felt like my teeth didn’t feel as clean using it. My breath didn’t seem as fresh either. I also don’t like how it doesn’t include hydroxyapatite. I wish that it had that ingredient in the formula for its teeth strengthening benefits.

4. Bite Toothpaste Bits


Bite toothpaste bits contain nano-hydroxyapatite, proven to strengthen and restore our pearly whites. Bite doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals, plastic, artificial flavoring, sulfates, parabens, and are 100% vegan and cruelty free.

What I like

I like that it’s free of plastic and less messy than a regular tube of toothpaste, making it easy to take with you on the go. This really makes traveling a breeze! I love knowing I could just include a few of the bits in my toiletry bag and not have to bring a tube of toothpaste. My mouth felt clean and fresh after using too, my teeth felt so smooth. My hubs loved this toothpaste! He said he loved how clean and polished his teeth felt. I also love the small ingredient list.

What I don’t like

I don’t like that some of the Bite flavors contain fluoride. I wouldn’t want people thinking they can just grab any Bite toothpaste and it’s fluoride free. I didn’t love the texture at fist of having pieces of the shell from the the bit in my mouth, however I got used it. It felt like chewing gum and having the outer shell crack in my mouth felt different. It’s ok now, but some people may not love that!

5. Davids Premium Natural Toothpaste


Davids premium natural toothpastes are whitening toothpastes, free of fluoride, sodium lauryl sulfate and sulfates, artificial flavors, artificial preservatives, artificial colors, and artificial sweeteners. They are also vegan, not tested on animals, and use sustainable packaging.

What I like

Davids toothpastes are rated “1” by the Environmental Working Group (best rating possible) for ingredient safety. They are committed to using premium USA Origin ingredients for the highest quality possible and to support American jobs. I love how my mouth feels fresh after using David’s toothpaste. It feels like a traditional toothpastes in many ways. They offer a variety of flavors from charcoal, to peppermint, spearmint, citrus mint and strawberry watermelon for kids.

What I don’t like

Their toothpastes contain carrageenan. Which isn’t something I want to see in my products. Research has shown that our mouths absorb a lot of what we put in them and so it’s absorbing the toothpaste we use as well. When I consider how often I use toothpaste, the accumulative effect really adds up and makes me pass on this toothpaste in the future. Carrageenan in the research has shown considerable inflammation (7). Also, while I applaud them for using metal tubes and not plastic, I have found them to be hard to get product out of, especially towards the end. This is a complaint I’ve heard from others as well.

6. Dr. Bronner’s All-One Toothpaste


Dr. Bronner’s all-one toothpastes are made with 70% organic ingredients and are fluoride and SLS-free.Their low-foaming toothpaste uses organic menthol crystals to freshen breath naturally. Organic coconut flour and fair trade organic coconut oil helps to gently remove plaque and whiten teeth, while organic aloe helps soothe gums. Their toothpastes are also vegan and cruelty-free, with no artificial colors or flavors, carrageenan, preservatives, synthetic sweeteners or detergent foaming agents.

*Sourced from Organic Soy

What I like

Dr. Bronner’s toothpaste is budget-friendly and comes in a variety of great-tasting flavors. Dr. Bronner’s also carries a whole line of personal care products, making it a one-stop shop for toothpaste, body wash and more. The best part. this brand is easy to find at Target, Whole Foods and other small health food stores

What I don’t like

The first ingredient which is always the main ingredient is organic glycerin which is derived from soy. As someone who has suffered from hypothyroidism I don’t like to consume excessive amounts of soy since too much soy has been shown to cause adverse affects on the thyroid. If you don’t have a thyroid issue, then this might be a great option for you.

7. Cali White Fluoride-Free Toothpaste

Pricing varies on Cali White website

$14.99 on Amazon and can save 10-15% with Subscribe and Save

What I like

They have various forms of whitening options from toothpaste to pens to strips to kits! Another is win is that their vitamin B12 infused whitening toothpaste contains the active form of B12, methylcobalamin. My teeth felt cleaning after using it and I did notice a brightness to them. I am excited to continue to use it to see even better results! I did ask about the natural flavors in the toothpaste listed at the bottom of their ingredient list. They said the natural flavor is the peppermint oil.

What I didn’t like

Since it is a charcoal toothpaste it is messy and can turn your toothbrush, and sink a grayish color. While I did use it consistently I didn’t notice a huge difference in my teeth looking whiter. I don’t love that they use natural flavors in their toothpaste. This can include so many things.

8. Auromere


Auromere is a gentle yet powerfully effective formula with Neem, Peelu, and over 20 additional Ayurvedic herbal ingredients known to promote optimum oral hygiene. Auromere is vegan, cruelty-free, non-GMO, fluoride-free, alcohol-free, and contains no artificial sweeteners.

$8.99 for a regular size toothpaste or $.85-$1.50 for sample sizes when purchased from Auromere

$13.99 on Amazon with 5% savings when you Subscribe and Save

What I like

I like that you can purchase sample sizes of Auromere’s toothpastes. It’s also worth noting that Auromere is owned and operated by a non-profit Integral Yoga ashram in Northern California.

What I don’t like

It’s not a deal breaker, but I would prefer not to have potassium sorbet, a chemical additive or preservative in my toothpaste. I was concerned about the fine chalk ingredient and the glycerin since it says it’s derived from vegetable oil. I did email Auromere and this is what they said: “The glycerin in the toothpaste comes from either rice bran oil or palm oil, depending upon availability. The fine chalk is also known as calcium carbonate and is an extra fine grade for less abrasivity.” I do like that they don’t use rapeseed oil in their glycerin.

9. Himalaya Botanique


Himalaya uses gentle ingredients without all the extras like Fluoride, Triclosan, SLS or gluten, and it still tastes and foams wonderfully. Himalaya is also vegan and cruelty free. It also combines Neem and Pomegranate for their cleansing and antioxidant properties


$6.99 on Amazon and when purchased directly from Himalaya


Water (aqua), Calcium Carbonate, Xylitol, Vegetable Glycerin (from vegetable oils), Silica, Lauryl Glucoside (from coconut oil), Stevia Rebaudiana (stevia) Extract, Xanthan Gum, Flavor (from essential oils and botanicals), Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate & Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate (from amino acids and vegetable oil), Menthol (from peppermint leaves)*, Sodium Chloride, Zinc Citrate, Thymol (from thyme leaf oil), Melia Azadirachta (neem) Leaf Extract*, Punica Granatum (pomegranate) Fruit Extract*, Embelia Robes (vidanga) Fruit Extract*, Terminalia Bellerica (belleric myrobalan) Fruit Extract*, Phyllanthus Emblica (amla) Fruit Extract*, Terminalia Chebula (chebulic myrobalan) Fruit Extract*, Acacia Arabica (Indian gum arabic tree) Bark Extract*.


What I like

Himalaya has been in business since 1930 and they offer not only oral care products but also personal care products as well as herbal supplements. I really like how this feels on the teeth and gives my mouth a fresh breath feeling.

What I don’t like

It contains vegetable glycerin from vegetable oils. The vegetable oils are sustainable palm oil and rapeseed oil(also known as canola oil). This is a big GMO crop and inflammatory. Not something I would want to be ingesting on the daily.

10. Uncle Harry’s Mineral Toothpaste


Uncle Harry’s Alkalizing Mineral Toothpaste encourages remineralization of tooth enamel by neutralizing acids and bacteria, supplying calcium and magnesium to strengthen teeth, and promoting an alkaline pH. Uncle Harry’s toothpastes are vegan, free from gluten, glycerin, fluoride, and sweeteners.


Bentonite clay, calcium carbonate, colloidal silver water, sea salt, alkalizing ionic minerals, mustard seed, natural menthol, pure essential oils of spearmint, peppermint, eucalyptus, clove, wintergreen, and oregano.


$7.00 when purchased directly from Uncle Harry’s

$20.50 for a 2 pack purchased on Amazon with the option to save 5% with Subscribe and Save

What I like

It helps supply a healthy pH to the mouth. It also comes in a glass container which is a great sustainable option. And if you’re thinking it might be gross to dip your toothpaste into a jar, think again. The essential oils in the jar act as a natural antiseptic. I loved the peppermint flavor.

What I don’t like

It contains Bentonite clay which can sometimes have traces of heavy metals in it. This used to be my favorite when I first started switching out my products 13 years ago, but since I’ve stopped using it consistently because of the bentonite clay. I had an amalgam(Mercury filling) removed several years ago and since then I’ve been on high alert to heavy metals since they can accumulate over time.

Best Natural Kids Toothpaste Brands

I couldn’t skip out on the best toothpaste for kids. With 4 kids that means I get multiple opinions on the toothpaste we try. Here are two brands that stand out amongst the rest.

Wellnesse Children’s Toothpaste

Wellnesse is Katie Well’s (aka the Wellness Mama) company. Wellnesse children’s toothpaste contains remineralizing hydroxyapatite, calcium carbonate, bacteria fighting aloe vera without any parabens and is non-GMO and cruelty free.


Safe for children of all ages




Sorbitol, Calcium Carbonate, Purified Water, Xylitol, Silica, Hydroxyapatite, Natural Strawberry Flavor, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Xanthan Gum, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Stevia Rebaudiana Leaf Extract

RiseWell Kid’s Toothpaste (My Kid’s Fave)

RiseWell Kids Toothpaste is the only one on the market that’s safe enough to eat. The reason? It’s made with Hydroxyapatite, which remineralizes teeth, without the risk of harm if accidentally ingested.


2 years and up


Cake Batter


Silica, Sorbitol, Glycerin, Xylitol, Hydroxyapatite, Calcium Carbonate, Propanediol, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Potassium Cocoate, Stevia Rebaudiana Extract, Erythritol, Cellulose Gum, Sodium Gluconate, Xanthan Gum

My Kid’s Review

They love it! They were excited to try a new toothpaste flavor and this one did not disappoint. They happily love brushing their teeth with it!

What is the best overall natural toothpaste?

While all of the toothpastes on this list are winners in my opinion, RiseWell literally rises to the top because of their toothpaste options for the entire family. They not only contain clean ingredients but those ingredients are also effective at cleaning teeth and promoting overall dental health plus my kids don’t complain about brushing their teeth anymore and in my book that’s a win!

    Hi Suzi,

    Great reviews of all the products. Really appreciate the information. What do you think of Dr. Brite products?

    • Suzi

      Hi Erika,

      I actually think they’re great! I didn’t have time to test them out but I think their ingredients are great and I love that they’re including hydroxyapatite now!
