Natural Toothpaste for Kids and Adults

Last updated on August 7th, 2022 at 11:23 am

There is more to consider when choosing a natural toothpaste than just fluoride. Whether anti or pro-fluoride, you might also be concerned with the other ingredients in toothpaste, such as sodium lauryl sulfate, parabens, titanium dioxide, and artificial colors.

Here’s a Cheat Sheet based on natural toothpaste for kids and adults. I figured a list of plastic-free toothbrushes is appropriate too.

Make Your Own Natural Toothpaste

Our friends at LuSa Organics (they make awesome soaps and body care… I live for their body scrubs) posted a tutorial for making your own toothpaste.  Check it out: Homemade Toothpaste

Boil a small pan of water. Measure out 1 Tb and stir into it Xylitol (optional). Stir to dissolve. Melt coconut oil and add to the water mixture. Measure in soap and stevia and blend (a stick blender works well if you have one. Otherwise, use your regular blender or whisk by hand like mad).  Blend while the formula cools enough to stay combined. Add essential oils and transfer to a clean squeeze or pump bottle. Cool completely, and shake well. Read their full post here… make sure also to check out their skincare items. Looooove!

Alternatives To Floride In ToothPaste

We get a lot of questions about toothpaste and fluoride and “my Dentist says my son needs fluoride drops”  here, and I am still kind of wishy-washy about fluoride.  Especially after reading the great articles on SAFBaby regarding Fluoride, it makes you wonder whether it’s the best thing. One alternative to Fluoride is Xylitol.

Dental Sealants

Many people worry about chemicals in dental sealants, and it’s a real concern, especially for kids.  Our pediatric dentist uses UltraSeal XT Plus (Made by UltraDent Products. Inc.), which contains no BPA, according to the company.  So if your dentist tells you it doesn’t exist, educate them or find a dentist that is up to speed on issues like BPA in dentistry.
