It is important to me that my family uses American made, natural toothpaste. The problem is, natural toothpaste is hard to find in popular big box stores and grocery stores. Most of the toothpaste on the shelves in these stores is sparkling blue or green in color. Yeah, definitely NOT natural.
Over the years we have tried many different brands of American made natural toothpaste. If a toothpaste tastes great, fits my ingredients requirements (natural ingredients, no added colors + artificial sweeteners, fluoride free), and leaves our mouths feeling clean, it's a winner for us. Here are our top picks.
Davids natural toothpaste is made in California. I love the ingredients, which are 98% US sourced. Davids toothpaste is fluoride-free, sulfate-free, and contains no artificial sweeteners and color. My whole family loves the taste. Davids' natural peppermint toothpaste is minty, but not too “spicy”, as my six-year-old daughter calls it, and it leaves everyone's mouth feeling clean and refreshed. Bonus: the Davids toothpaste tube is made from aluminum, not plastic, so it is recyclable.
Davids toothpaste is available in flavors that both kids and adults will love like strawberry watermelon, herbal citrus peppermint, peppermint, and spearmint. Sensitive and whitening options are available too.
We learned that this family prefers mint flavored toothpaste, but of all the non mint flavors we tried, Redmond Earthpaste Lemon Twist is our top pick. This is technically a “For Kids” toothpaste, but the adults liked the taste more than the youngest kid did. Made with food grade Redmond Clay, Real Salt®, nano silver, and flavored with essential oils, Earthpaste Lemon Twist natural toothpaste leaves everyone's mouths lemony fresh. Earthpaste natural toothpaste is fluoride free, glycerin free, sulfate free, and contains no artificial colors.
Redmond Earthpaste has other flavors too like peppermint, wintergreen, spearmint, and cinnamon. They have powder, charcoal and unsweetened options as well.
The Dental Herb Company Tooth & Gums Essentials is a favorite for adults who have a history of gum inflammation and/or bad breath. The natural ingredients in the Tooth & Gums Essentials are antimicrobial in nature to prevent/fight the bacteria that causes gum disease & breath issues. This is my hubby's favorite toothpaste as he loves toothpaste with a kick to it and this toothpaste is definitely the “spiciest” of them all. Dental Herb Company Tooth & Gums Paste is for adults only, and contains no synthetic fluoride, and no sulfates.
The ingredinets in Desert Essence Botanical Toothpaste is carefully selected to keep teeth and gums healthy and clean. The plant powered ingredients are formulated for individual dental needs. All Desert Essence toothpaste is made in USA, floride free, and non-GMO. This brand has the most variety options of all the brands on this list, which include several flavors kids love, gel toothpaste, coconut oil toothpaste, neem toothpaste, sea salt toothpaste, tree tea oil toothpaste, carrageenan free toothpaste and more.
I'm a huge fan of Dr. Bronner's products and the Spearmint All-One Toothpaste is no exception. I love the taste and texture of the paste. It leaves both my teeth and mouth feeling clean. Made with 70% organic ingredients, the Spearmint All-One Toothpaste features ingredients such as hydrated silica and calcium carbonate to gently reduce plaque, organic aloe juice to soothe gums, and organic coconut oil and organic coconut flour to polish teeth enamel.
Dr. Bronner's toothpaste is available in other flavors like peppermint, cinnamon and annise. Not only is Dr. Bronner's toothpaste organic, floride free, and vegan, but Dr. Bronner’s products are never tested on animals.
We've always been big fans of RADIUS. The company makes its non-toxic oral care products in the USA and it's a certified Women-Owned Business. Can it get any better? In fact, it can! RADIUS just came out with an Organic Coconut Oil Toothpaste that is organic, vegan, chemical-free, cruelty-free and dye-free. Coconut oil naturally whitens teeth. All the ingredients are safe; you won’t see any chemicals, dyes, pesticides, GMOs, glutens, fluoride, saccharin, SLS, SLES, carrageenan, parabens, detergents, or synthetics of any kind. Just simple and safe ingredients.
RADIUS has a variety of toothpaste options for kids, adults and even pets!
Tom's of Maine offers a variety of natural toothpaste options for both children and adults. From fluoride-free to with fluoride and whitening toothpasteTom’s of Maine has the whole family covered on natural oral care products.
Tom's of Maine natural children's toothpaste is the toothpaste my kids' were used since they had teeth. Tom's of Maine children's toothpaste is available fluoride free, has natural strawberry flavorings, and is dye free.
When they outgrew the children's toothpaste, Tom's of Maine Whole Care Toothpaste has become a favorite.
RiseWell is the first USA company to replace fluoride with safe, naturally-derived hydroxyapatite. You'll find selections for kids and adults. It's also paraben-free, vegan, and cruelty-free with no harsh foaming agents. It strengthens and restores tooth enamel while strengthening and restoring tooth enamel. When used twice daily, RiseWell tube lasts about three months.

thanks for articel
I love Primal Life Organic’s Dirty Mouth Tooth Powder in the unsweetened Spearmint.
I would venture to say that if you can’t find ” Made in the USA” anywhere on your tube of toothpaste, than it wasn’t. This goes for most other products.
Dr. Watson’s Go Green Toothpaste- Mellow Mint-AMAZON
MADE IN THE USA
Toms if owned by colgate-palmolive and is not organic and all natural. They actually settled a class action back in 2015 because of this. It shouldn’t be on the list.
I purchased Tom’s thinking it was still made in Maine but I don’t think it is anymore. Could not find made in the USA anywhere. Not buying it again.
We checked in with Tom’s and they confirmed, “We’re proud to make all of our toothpaste and stick deodorant units sold right here in Sanford, Maine.”
“Sold right here in Maine” maybe be misleading.
Thank you for these Made in America products. I just read “China Rx” which was shocking and disturbing. There was a section in the book which told about toothpaste made in China making its way to our hospitals and Hotels.
I am more determined to find a good USA toothpaste and will try to avoid anything from China if that is possible these days.
Thanks for the list! I’m finding this after I JUST bought 4 tubes of big-label brand from the grocery store because I got a good deal :/. But this weekend brought back my zeal from 10 years ago of finding made-in-the-US items. And that brought me to your site. So thank you! I have the American-made toothbrushes to go along with these pastes—so now I’m on my way!! I look forward to reading all of your posts!
I ‘m so happy to see this list! I can’t wait to try these and make the switch! Thanks for the list!
Tom’s is one of the best!
My family uses a couple of these brands, but I have not heard of David’s before. I am always looking for good toothpaste that cleans but does not have the nasty ingredients that some of the larger brands have. I will check these out.
I’ve been trying out a few natural toothpowders and rinses the last few years. I’ve heard of Tom’s of Maine and Earthpaste, but had not heard of the David’s or The Dental Herb Company brands. I know from looking for more natural toothpastes. powders, and rinses, many that claim to be natural turn out not to be so natural once you look at their ingredients lists.
I’m currently using Davids toothpaste. It’s great! 🙂
I use and love Krista’s Natural Products toothpaste, it doesn’t have xyilitol or sorbitol, is simple, and tastes ‘real’
I love Earthpaste and love all the flavors. They really help keep teeth white and it tastes great. I love that you can swallow the tootpaste instead of spitting out, if you want!
Eco-Dent makes a made-in-US tooth POWDER which my husband and I switched to years ago. We love it and will never go back to paste. Powders are more eco-friendly to ship as they don’t have any water in them so you use a much smaller amount than paste. Vitacost offers this powder for the lowest price.
I am curious to know if you have heard of any natural toothpaste for sensitive teeth.
The lemon twist sounds interesting — and I love lemon!
Very cool. I too, like my family to only use natural toothpastes. I have not heard of a few of these, so I will check them out. I also don’t like sorbitol in my toothpaste so it is extra hard to find something that works. I am excited to learn more about these.
Thank you for the suggestions! I placed an order for David’s and will give it a try 🙂 Curious – do you also recommend Tom’s adult versions, or just the children’s? My apologies if I missed that in your review.
I had not tried these brands before. I’m interested in trying David’s toothpaste. Thanks for the review.
I have used EARTHPASTE and Toms and I do like them very much. I never tried the others but I would like to.
The only one I’ve heard of and tried is Tom’s – and it is great! I’m happy to find out there are others to try!!!
I would like to try this out, to see if this is better than what I already use.
