9 Best Natural Non-Toxic Toothpastes of 2023
I’ve rounded up the best non toxic toothpastes made of clean and natural ingredients safe for both kids and adults. There are plenty of fluoride free toothpastes to choose from (or even natural toothpastes with fluoride) – the options are endless. The healthiest, clean and non toxic toothpastes should be free of artificial sweeteners, coloring, sodium lauryl sulfate (associated with canker sores) triclosan (a pesticide used to fight plaque and gingivitis), and Fluoride, which can be toxic at high levels. Since we’re directly putting toothpastes in our mouths, ideally two to three times a day, it makes sense that we want the safest toothpastes. Throw out your toxic Crest toothpaste and read on for the best natural and non toxic toothpastes for the whole family.
Read Before You Buy Toothpaste
Almost every natural toothpaste, and toothpaste for that matter, uses the word whitening. Please don’t expect any actual whitening results. By whitening these brands mean your teeth will look brighter from cleaning, but if you want to remove stains from your teeth, buy an actual teeth whitening product NOT toothpaste.
Also, many brands now offer natural toothpastes with and without fluoride. Choosing which will depend on whether you’re team fluoride or not. Fluoride is a neurotoxin linked to lower IQ, fertility issues, cancer, ADHD and more, but many dentists believe in fluoride.
If you’re looking for an innovative, safe and eco-friendly way of maintaining your oral health, try NOBS toothpaste tablets. These tablets are not only easy to use and perfectly dosed but also super convenient if you find yourself on the go often. Packaged in an airtight glass jar, they significantly reduce plastic waste compared to traditional toothpaste tubes and are made from natural ingredients, including Nanohydroxyapatite to help restore enamel. NOBS is among the safest toothpastes around and suitable for pregnant women and children. International shipping available here.
Swapping toxic fluoride and SLS for a safe alternative, nano-hydroxyapatite, Boka helps remineralize teeth, and fight plaque and sensitivity. Nano-hydroxyapatite is an evolution in dentistry that’s already been a gold standard in Japan for over 40-years. Also known as n-Ha, it makes up the foundation of teeth and bones, meaning it’s naturally restorative and helpful in reducing sensitivity.
Boka toothpastes are 100% biocompatible and non-toxic, and contain aloe vera, bacteria-fighting xylitol, antioxidant-rich green tea and refreshing mint. They have a salve consistency versus the creamy nature of conventional toothpastes. I found Boka toothpastes to have a good amount of minty-ness to make my mouth feel fresh and clean. Compared to Risewell, Boka toothpastes are denser with more grip and mintier.

Ojook reminds me of the Korean toothpastes my mom had us use growing up. Bamboo salt toothpastes are the norm in Korean households. Ojook is the first nano hydroxyapatite + Korean bamboo salt toothpaste (yes it’s very salty!). It reduces plaque build-up and bacteria, and is formulated with nano-hydroxyapatite (nHA) to remineralize enamel and prevent sensitivity. Alkaline 9x roasted bamboo salt restores ideal mouth chemistry, promoting healthy gums and fresh breath.
