Natural toothpaste without fluoride
If you’re unsure where to start, you can’t go wrong with the classic English Peppermint Natural Toothpaste by Georganics. It’s fluoride-free and instead uses English peppermint oil to kill bacteria and prevent gum disease, keeping your teeth sparkling clean in the process.
Georganics also sell a stick version of this product called called ‘Toothsoap’ – don’t worry, it’s not as clinical or scary as it sounds! This eco-friendly toothpaste creates a natural foam that lets your teeth absorb the nutrients without completely coating them, and one purchase should last you around 6 months – what a bargain!

Toothpaste tablets have completely changed the game for me, making brushing my teeth on-the-go easier than ever. They’re vegan and come in plastic packaging but still contain the same amount of fluoride as traditional toothpastes to leave your teeth feeling fresh.
All you need to do is chew on a tablet until it’s creamy and then brush your teeth as normal, making this natural toothpaste perfect for travelling or lazy days!
People who suffer from sensitive teeth shouldn’t miss out on the eco-friendly experience. If this sounds like you, why not try Ben & Anna’s Sensitive Toothpaste?
It uses sea buckthorn to strengthen your teeth and protect against tooth decay, all while being vegan and plastic-free.
Maybe you’re searching for a whitening formula, rather than something that just cleans your teeth? Well, eco-friendly toothpastes have still got your back!
Georganics’ Toothpowder will help you get pearly whites while protecting the planet, as its natural formula effectively polishes away plaque and stains with no chemicals or plastic packaging in sight.
If mint isn’t your cup of tea, that’s nothing to be ashamed of. Ben & Anna’s Orange Toothpaste is an entirely natural toothpaste made with you in mind!
The zesty orange flavour is a refreshing alternative to mint, which is ideal if you fancy a change or find other toothpastes are too strong. This high-quality, eco-friendly toothpaste guarantees protected teeth for the whole family.
As you can see, there are so many eco-friendly toothpaste options on the market, so there’s no excuse to still be using regular plastic tubes. Brushing your teeth has never been simpler and more sustainable!
