The Ultimate Guide to Vegan Toothpaste

Vegan Toothpaste

Why should you use Vegan or Cruelty Free Toothpaste?

Cruelty free products mean that they have not been tested on animals – which means that no animal has been harmed or mistreated in the creating of your beauty product, whether this is skin, make up or hair care. When you make the choice to use a cruelty free product you are ensuring that you are not only using a healthier product for yourself but for animals and the environment.

When you are looking for a cruelty free toothpaste that is vegan it will be made with natural ingredients and will ensure that there are no animal byproducts. You can get vegan toothpastes for every budget and they can come in both fluoridated and fluoride free options, so even though your going vegan you still have a huge amount of choices to consider.

Unfortunately many supermarket brands of toothpaste are not vegan friendly or cruelty free – so do your research wisely, or continue reading. We look at some great vegan and cruelty free options that you can get online and also which common toothpastes are and are not vegan.
