Read on to find out why you should avoid chemical laden toothpastes and how this guide was compiled. Or just skip the whys and hows and scroll down to the list!

Why You Should Avoid Fluoride, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and triclosan

Fluoride

If you're like me, you've been brainwashed since you were a kid into believing fluoride is an essential component to dental health, when in reality it adds little, if any, benefit to your teeth. And while more people in the US drink fluoridated water than the rest of the world combined, Americans don't have any less tooth decay than folks in non-flouridated countries.

The following health concerns listed on Dr. Mercola's website are enough to keep me running and screaming from fluoride:

  • Brain damage
  • Tumors
  • Cancer
  • Immune system disruptor
  • Thyroid disorder
  • Arthritis
  • Dementia
  • Lethargy
  • Increased lead absorption
  • Muscle disorders
  • Bone fractures
  • Infertility
  • Genetic damage and cell death

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate & Sodium Laureth Sulfate

SLS is a toxic chemical that provides the foaming action in countless brands of toothpastes, soaps, shampoos, detergents and more. The Environmental Working Group sites nearly 16,000 studies in the PubMed science library showing links between SLS and the following health concerns:

  • Irritation of the skin and eyes
  • Organ toxicity
  • Developmental & reproductive toxicity
  • Neurotoxicity
  • Endocrine disruption
  • Ecotoxicology
  • Cellular changes
  • Possible mutations and cancer

Sodium laurel sulfate also messes with your taste buds by diminishing sweet notes and enhancing bitter flavors, causing you add another teaspoon or two of sugar to your morning coffee.

Triclosan 

Triclosan was first registered with the EPA in 1969 as a pesticide, and yet it is found in thousands of common products that transfer it to the human body. It has been detected in the urine of three-quarters of the American population.

Studies show this toxin can have the following health effects:

  • Endocrine disruption, which can lead to various cancers
  • Allergies
  • Muscle function impairment
  • Thyroid disruption
  • Weight gain
  • Inflammatory responses

How this Blissful miss list was compiled

ENVIRONMENTAL WORKING GROUP

EWG is an organization that rates common products on their toxicity to the human body. A rating between 1 and 10 is given with 1 being the safest and 10 the most toxic. This list provides tooth cleaners with an EWG rating of 1 & 2.

Amazon customer ratings

Tooth pastes, gels and powders rated 1 and 2 by EWG were then cross-reference with those found on Amazon, and then narrowed down to only those given 4 stars or higher by Amazon customers. 

Disclaimer

The safety of products suggested by Blissful Miss is based on the Environmental Working Group rating system. This is not to say that every ingredient in and of itself is considered completely safe, but combined with several other safe ingredients receives a good rating by EWG. If you want to ensure every ingredient is up to your personal standards you are encouraged to read ingredient lists and do further research as you see fit.

What about Tom's of Maine?

Tom's of Maine is a well known company in the natural product industry. However, while more than one Tom's of Maine toothpaste made it on my original list, I discovered all Tom's of Maine toothpastes contain sodium lauryl sulfate, thereby eliminating them altogether. They claim that there is not enough SLS in their products to cause any harm, but I would never consider recommending their toothpastes when there are so many other great brands without this toxic chemical.

  • David's Natural Toothpaste Whitens Teeth & Removes Plaque with Natural Ingredients
  • Flavored with a unique combination of oils from a variety of mint that reviewers think is pretty darn amazing

Amazon Review Quotes

This is my all-time favorite no-fluoride, no-sulfate, no bad stuff (yet whitening, anti-plaque, and breath-freshening) toothpaste, and I'd recommend it to anyone. The price is good for the generous tube you get. Tastes great, works well... AND you get a roll-up key!

I am impressed. My teeth have never felt this fresh and clean in years. Also, my teeth were noticeably whiter in just a few days of use. Davids will change the way you look at your toothpaste.

This stuff is pretty terrific. Not grainy, cleans like a champ, tastes great, cool packaging. And, oh by the way, natural and US made and it doesn't get much better. Love this product. I look forward to the next time I brush my teeth.

Amazon review quotes

My teeth feel like they've just been through a professional cleaning—twice a day—every day. They literally have never felt so squeaky clean. They seem whiter, too ... My dental exam was sterling! :)

My 6 year old son and toddler daughter suffer from tooth decay caused by Celiac Disease. After using Earthpaste for about 6 weeks, I see the enamel returning on their damaged teeth. My own teeth are whiter and stronger than ever. I LOVE this product!!

I have ALWAYS had sensitive teeth. I usually have to get fluoride rubbed on my gums for receding gum lines when I go to the dentist. I was nervous to try a toothpaste without fluoride, as I was always told you needed it. Well, I have to say that I don't have nearly as sensitive teeth since using this product. I have used it for over a month and my teeth are less sensitive.

We love this toothpaste! Our 20 month old daughter happily brushes her teeth with it. Best part? The xylitol makes it sweet while strengthening our little one's teeth instead of destroying them like other sugars.

Found out about this toothpaste from the EWG.org website. Rated as non-toxic, so I was thrilled to see it here on Amazon. Got it last week and it has been a hit with my toddler. He really likes the taste!

My one year old likes it and we use it every day - just a tiny bit. I like the fact that it's all natural.

Amazon Review Quotes

I absolutely love this toothpaste. I actually enjoy brushing because of the wonderful, refreshing scent and consistency! And I noticed that my teeth look considerably whiter, healthier and shinier, than when I use other brands. 

I bought this toothpaste because it contains no fluoride or SLS ... It's pretty much typical vegan toothpaste taste wise, but I was highly surprised when it actually did help whiten my teeth a little. They weren't very yellow to begin with, but someone actually asked why my teeth were so white!

This product is completely vegan. For those of you that don't know what that mans: absolutely none of the ingredients came from animal sources and they were not tested on animals either.

amazon review quotes

After finding out the huge conspiracy and false science on fluoride by my doctor, I immediately tossed my old crappy toothpaste and tap water. Jason was the only thing in my city that didn't have fluoride in it. It tastes great and won't kill you, which is all that matters to me in a toothpaste.

I was blown away. Nice and minty. Smooth texture. And so much foam, you almost choke on it! Now, whenever I'm stuck using Crest or some other chemically big-name toothpaste, I'm disappointed in the quality.

I'm so glad that I found this toothpaste to replace the Tom's of Main Fluoride Free Natural toothpaste that I was using. Tom's was okay, but it has ingredients (like sodium lauryl sulfate) that are definitely not natural. Jason Sea Fresh ... feels and tastes great in my mouth. I think I'll stick with this one for a very long time.

amazon review quotes

This tooth powder will make your teeth noticeably whiter — but not "blue white" or unnatural-looking like clinical bleaching — in about two weeks.

This stuff is off the hook! It makes your mouth feel brand new and your teeth are so smooth! I have always had extremely sensitive teeth and have tried all of the non fluoride toothpastes. They all made my teeth ache. Not this and it lasts for a very long time. My husband is in love with this product as well.

I've been using this product for a few years and am very pleased with the results. The powder lasts a long time if you sprinkle in your mouth instead of on your brush - where 40% lands in the sink. The whitening power is superb - compared to conventional whitening pastes I've tried. My check ups at the dentist over the last few years have resulted in no cavities and complements from the hygienist.

Amazon review quotes

In the first use I noticed a real difference in the overall clean. It feels like a dental cleaning every time and I can't stop running my tongue across my teeth. Moreover, the clean lasts all day unlike most toothpaste. I'm a month in, and I'm noticing my tooth sensitivity decreasing dramatically and they are starting to re-mineralize because of my change to the WAPF-diet. Thoroughly impressed.

This toothpaste cleans my teeth to a smooth natural shine. Sometimes I've used toothpastes that leave my teeth feeling a bit over-scrubbed and Eco-Dent manages to make my teeth feel truly clean, without feeling stripped and vulnerable.

Tastes great, put a little powder on your toothbrush and brush! I took this when flights Europe to US permitted no liquids or gels on board and it saved me on long flights!

Hands down the best tartar control tooth cleaner I've ever used.

This product is amazing. My teeth have never felt so clean! The idea of powder instead of paste takes time getting used to, but that takes no time at all. You just wet your toothbrush, put a small amount of powder on the brush and brush away!

This is my favorite tooth powder. It has great flavor and leaves my teeth feeling super clean. So much better than paste!

The best toothpaste ever!! Makes teeth whiter instantly. It far exceeds any commercial toothpaste, and I wish I knew about it earlier. Kudos to Bronners!

I am a dental hygienist and I love this product! I am not a fan of mint so I like the cinnamon. I really like that the ingredients are natural (no chemicals like most brands) and there is no foaming agent ... I am hooked.

This toothpaste seems to clean my teeth quite well. After using for less than 6 months, my last cleaning by the dentist went much faster.

  • Monmorillonite Clay does wonders to heal, whiten, control cavities and nasty breath. It also absorbs bacteria lurking between your teeth and under your gums.
  • This uber natural toothpaste is like a superhero for your mouth!

Amazon Review Quotes

I was having some trouble with my gums being sensitive and bleeding. After using this toothpaste for about three weeks, they were a LOT better.

My teeth never feel as clean with any other toothpaste! ... The flavor is minty, but not so strong that you feel like your mouth is on fire. The color was a little shocking to me at first, but as it's a clay toothpaste I'm not really sure why. No artificials, no fluoride, no problem letting my kids use it. My mouth and teeth are happy campers!

I was recommended this toothpaste by my dental hygienist. I enjoy brushing my teeth with it because it leaves my mouth feeling very clean and I like the taste. I find that I don't wake up with any bad taste in my mouth after using it at night. Don't let the brown color throw you off, it actually whitens your teeth! I also like that it does not contain fluoride. Wonderful product!

Buy this toothpaste! Several reviewers with severe dental problems rave about the healing properties of Desert Essence Natural Tea Tree & Neem. They report no more bleeding, no need for deep scaling teeth cleanings, tighter gums and more.

  • Natural antiseptic abilities of Tea Tree Oil 
  • Helps fight plaque naturally
  • Deep cleans teeth and gums without harsh abrasives
  • Fluoride free

AMAZON REVIEW QUOTES

Cleans perfectly - nice taste - no bleeding gums with this toothpaste!

I got the short end of the stick when it came to dental health genetics ... Thank goodness I found this toothpaste! I used it for 1 month before my next cleaning/pre-periodontal maintenance exam ... I'm very happy to announce that IT WORKED!! I didn't require any scaling, I had MUCH less staining than usual, there were no 5mm pockets, no redness, no bleeding, no need for antibiotic powders, no painful sub-gingival scaling or prescription mouthwashes!! I brought the tube with me to show the hygienist, she said she's recommended Tea Tree Oil for patients in the past and saw about 50% with positive results.

Love the taste and effectiveness of this natural toothpaste. My husband was having deep scaling teeth cleanings twice a year until we changed to this. His gums bled and teeth were loose. He has been using for two years and has not had to have deep scaling since using and teeth are firm in his gums.

  • 70% Organic
  • Get Pepperminty Fresh Breath
  • Whitens Teeth
  • Reduces Plaque

Amazon Review Quotes

LOVE IT. My teeth feel squeaky clean after using it, and my mouth feels cleaner in the morning when I wake up. It took me about a week to get used to the non foaming (chemical) action you get from normal toothpaste, but the peppermint flavor makes up for it and I highly recommend you try this!

First off anything made by Dr. Bronner's is amazing, but their toothpaste is the best of the best. It has a strong mint taste which I love, and it last for hours. My teeth are much whiter, my breath is fresher and it helps me cut down on sugar cravings. My teeth are sometimes sensitive so this is perfect. The lack of suds can take a little getting used to, but once you see how clean your mouth looks and feels using Dr. B's you'll really start to question the necessity of chemical that makes your paste suds.

The best organic toothpaste I've found. I've tried a LOT of them, this is the only one I've been buying on repeat. Tastes good, fresh, and does a wonderful job. Get those chemicals out of your mouth and buy healthy toothpaste!!!

Amazon Review Quotes

I got this toothpaste because of the watermelon flavor. I don't know about anyone else but I am getting tired of mint flavored toothpaste. Since it was a kids toothpaste, I didn't think it would clean your teeth like the more abrasive stuff. Well, it isn't real abrasive but it gets my teeth cleaner than most toothpastes I have used. My teeth stay cleaner in between brushings . I think the chalky toothpastes add to the tartar buildup on my teeth. Since I have been using it my teeth have stayed cleaner and the sensitivity has gone away. The taste is great! I look forward to brushing now. Before, it felt like my mouth and gums were stripped and irritated, brushing with this stuff doesn't do that.

This is by far the best and I will never use anything else for my girls. My 4 yr old recently started acting like brushing her teeth was torture so I knew I had to try something different. That's how I found this product. My daughter now asks me to brush her teeth! Unbelievable! She loves it that much! I also like that's is free of all the bad stuff that goes into regular kids toothpaste! 

This is the best fluoride-free toothpaste we've ever had. Our son is super picky and he loves this stuff. Its a bit pricey but worth it for the integrity of the product and an enthusiastic tooth-brusher!
