There are so many clear benefits to Davids Natural Toothpaste....no chemicals to disrupt your delicate oral microbiome, no fear that these chemicals will be absorbed by the rest of your body, peace of mind knowing your choice is better for the environment....the list goes on!
But one of the lesser-known benefits is that Davids is a safe, gentle, and effective natural toothpaste for kids!
It’s no secret that kids are always curious. It’s natural for them to think, “hmm this tastes good, so I may as well try to eat it.” We don’t blame them, it does taste good. Plus, we love curious minds! Curiosity is actually a huge part of the story of Davids (our founder, Eric, was very curious and determined to create the best natural toothpaste out there).
So, needless to say, we’re very considerate of how our natural toothpaste performs in the hands of young, curious minds. That’s exactly why we believe Davids is a great natural toothpaste for kids. Free from fluoride, SLS, and other chemical ingredients....you can feel reassured knowing that the toothpaste in the hands of your little ones....also ensures that your little one is in good hands.
Davids is a fluoride-free, SLS-free natural kids toothpaste
Davids only contains quality, sustainably sourced, natural ingredients…..leaving out sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and fluoride.
SLS is a chemical ingredient used to make toothpaste foam (and other cosmetics like soap and shampoo). In the world of toothpaste, SLS can make sensitive mouths burn and/or blister. You don’t have to worry about that with Davids. We replace SLS with sodium cocoyl glutamate, a mild foaming ingredient naturally derived from coconut oil. It’s better for your health (and your tiny human’s health)...and it’s better for the environment, too! Plus, less excessive foaming means less of a mess when your kids get used to brushing on their own.
Speaking of kids brushing on their own....let’s be honest, curious kids aren’t afraid to swallow toothpaste. That’s one great reason we leave fluoride out of our natural toothpaste. While fluoride is known to strengthen tooth enamel and prevent decay, who knows how much toothpaste kids may swallow from brush to brush. Ingesting too much fluoride can lead to stomach pain and intestinal discomfort. Davids utilizes natural ingredients to break up plaque, eliminate bad bacteria, and polish teeth....so you and your kids can prevent buildup that could lead to tooth decay in a natural way. You can think of Davids as your go-to fluoride-free toothpaste for kids.

Davids uses premium natural ingredients
We’ve talked about the chemical ingredients we leave out, so it’s only fair to touch on some of the amazing ingredients that make Davids an amazing natural kids toothpaste.
- xylitol: this is a gentle but mighty natural sweetener that gives Davids a delightful taste while reducing bacteria, soothing gum inflammation, and balancing your oral pH.
- essential oils: Davids avoids chemical flavors and only uses premium peppermint oils sourced in the USA. These gentle flavors work to kill bacteria in your (and your kid’s) mouth, leaving behind a mild, invigorating freshness.
- stevia leaf extract: this is another safe+natural sweetener that enhances the amazing taste of our peppermint essential oils.
- micro-abrasives: these gentle teeth exfoliators (namely, hydrated silica and calcium carbonate) are naturally derived. Davids uses only the highest quality, USA-made, ultra-fine micro-abrasives, designed to safely clean and polish your child’s pearly whites.
With all of that being said, we recommend our herbal citrus peppermint flavor for your curious kids. With subtle hints of fruity sweetness and calming peppermint....it’s sure to be a natural hit with your little ones!
