To The Teeth

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about non-toxic oral healthcare. It’s definitely one of the less glamorous non-toxic beauty categories to talk about, but crazy important. The products that we use in our mouths are some of the most critical to discuss because A. We swallow a portion of what we put in there and B. Not using products that are up to snuff in the eyes of your dentist can cause seriously negative longterm effects. Personally for me, teeth were my biggest insecurity growing up (I did the braces thing not once, but twice) so it’s also important in my eyes to not only have a mouth that feels clean, but looks it too. So let’s talk about it! Here’s our guide to the best non-toxic oral hygiene products:

David's Natural Toothpaste

Personally my favorite clean toothpaste is David’s Natural. I love the feeling of opening up a fresh one, rolling down the silver metal key for the first time to get every last drop out, and the way the mint colored packaging looks on my medicine cabinet. There are a million good things about this toothpaste, but the most important to note are: EWG verified – for consumer safety, SLS free, sustainable and 100% recyclable.

Bamboo Toothbrush

There are many to choose from at all price points. We love them because they are sustainable and can replace them as often as you see fit without feeling the guilt. Some have charcoal bristles which add an extra clean boost because the charcoal pulls out the toxins, much like a detox face mask.

Coco Floss

Dental floss, but better. Coco Floss is made with coconut oil to sooth gums, vegan wax, and designed by dentists. It also comes in fun flavors like coconut, classic mint, orange, and strawberry.

Olas Bio-Active Mouth Rinse

Admittedly- I’ve never been a mouth-wash person. The dry mouth after taste is just not nice, and it didn’t feel like it was curtailing any bad breathe. The Olas mouth rinse is made without alcohol, so you never have to put up with dry mouth again. It kills bacteria with salt water and promotes healthy gums with a healing seaweed and essential oil blend.

Living Libations Copper Tongue Scraper

It’s like your normal tongue scraper, but better. Copper has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine for tongue scraping because of it’s anti-bacterial properties. Bonus points for being super chic looking too.

Coconut Oil

Nothing beats a jar from the supermarket. Surely you’ve heard a bit about oil pulling, but if you haven’t, here’s a tutorial. Regardless of if you believe oil pulling is working the BTS magic it claims to or not, you can’t deny the fresh mouth feeling after you do it. It also just makes sense, right? Just like makeup, some things dissolve best with water, some dissolve best with oil.

Keeko Botanical Teeth Whitening Pen

Let’s be real, finding a totally non-toxic whitening pen is not an easy task. The best thing to do is probably stick to a really good oral care plan in hopes of keeping teeth pearly white. Sometimes, you need a little extra help though before a big event. I’ve been using this one from Keeko– not 100% clean but it doesn’t have peroxide in it like every other teeth whitening gel, which is a big bonus in my book. Plus, there are visible results!
