Cruelty-Free Friday: Toothpaste


Hello readers and happy Friday! So it has been over a month since my last post and I sincerely apologize! Life can be hectic at times, but I’m back in the game and intend to put out a bunch more posts in the very near future!

To get back into the blogging groove, I thought I could use some fresh content; ever since our vegan transition last December, there have been so many positive changes in our lives. One of the greatest aspects of this lifestyle is knowing that you no longer support animal cruelty. Not just for consumption, but for testing as well. 

Something people don’t always think about is how much pain and suffering goes into products we use on a daily basis. From hand soaps and facial cleansers to cosmetics and hair products, animal testing is a prominent and extremely common practice used by various companies. A majority of the items we see in department stores contribute to this heartless cruelty, and it needs to stop.

But what can we do? To start, simply discontinuing to purchase products from these companies makes a huge difference! So to make things easier, I’ve decided to host a new segment called “Cruelty-Free Friday” that will feature a new category of cruelty-free products every week! My goal is to provide ideas to help promote companies that do not test on animals or use animal-derived ingredients.

Together we can make the world a better, kinder place! 🙂

Vegan & Cruelty-Free Toothpaste Brands

1. Hello

Review: “Hello’s toothpastes are my favorite. I hate toothpastes that taste like…toothpaste. Hello is the first one to change that. The flavors are much more subtle, naturally flavored and still keeps your teeth clean and fresh. And the packaging is so AWESOME! I almost wanted to save the box, before I asked myself, “Really? Where are you planning on using this ever again?” Still…it looks amazing.” – M. and S.

2. Himalaya Botanique

Review: “I have tried several natural toothpastes and none seem to clean my teeth like this one. I always return back to this product. I also have extremely brittle teeth but while regularly using this product, i went to the dentist and had no cavities! Works extremely well!” – Ashley

3. Jason

Review: “This is the best toothpaste I have ever used! It has a great taste without being sweet, a wonderful texture and leaves my teeth feeling clean and fresh. I am somewhat obsessed with keeping my teeth clean and have tried many different kinds of toothpaste. I highly recommend this product!!” – P. Lynam

4. Kiss My Face

Review: “I purchased this as an all-natural, fluoride free alternative to the regular toothpastes I have been using my whole life. I’ve recently decided to switch my family over to a more natural lifestyle, and fluoride does not fit that picture. Kiss My Face has been a great brand for me, and meets my expectations in both price and quality. This gel toothpaste is no different. I’ve tried different recipes for homemade toothpaste and could never get the consistency or taste just right. This one is great. I have noticed a difference in tooth whiteness in the past several weeks since using this! Very happy with it and it doesn’t make my mouth sensitive.” – j.

5. Nature’s Gate

Review: “This has got to be one of the best toothpaste I have ever bought! As a mom it’s important for me to eliminate everything bad from our daily lives, in our daily products. Nature’s Gate far exceeded my expectations! I have finally found a toothpaste that works for us and will continue to buy from them in the future. For now, we have opted for the six pack, every six months! It’s an amazing product at an amazing price!” – Jaimie Horn

Review: “This toothpaste is the best one I’ve tried yet. I love the clove flavor (although my spouse does not–so it isn’t for everyone), and I really like that all of the ingredients are natural. I really like keeping my teeth as clean as possible. I purchased an electric toothbrush several years back that I’m in love with, but, to my surprise, this toothpaste actually made my teeth feel even cleaner! Another thing I really like is that it does not get super watered down while brushing like other natural toothpastes I’ve tried. Definitely give it a try!” – Brandon
