Looking for a vegan toothpaste? It can be hard to find toothpaste brands that don't test on animals, but this list will help you find a toothpaste that is vegan and cruelty-free!
Is Toothpaste Vegan?
Like most products, there are some toothpastes that are vegan, and some that are not. Unfortunately, some companies use animal-derived ingredients in their toothpastes, and many big brands still test their ingredients and products on animals. Containing animal products or being tested on animals makes something non-vegan.
Common toothpaste brands to avoid (because they test on animals):
- Arm & Hammer
What is Fluoride?
Fluoride is a mineral found in soil, water, and some foods. It is often added to toothpaste and public water supplies to help prevent cavities.
There is some debate around whether or not people should use toothpaste that contains fluoride. Dentists recommend it because it strengthens tooth enamel and helps to prevent cavities, but some people choose to avoid it.
If you’re unsure about whether or not you should be using a toothpaste with fluoride, you should always check with a qualified dentist. You can learn more about fluoride here.
This list of vegan toothpastes contains options for people who want toothpaste with fluoride and for those who want a fluoride-free toothpaste.
