The FDA does not allow any natural toothpaste without fluoride to make claims related to preventing or reducing cavities. That being said, cavities are caused by the bacteria in plaque that eat through your enamel and create a cavity. With regular brushing Davids works to reduce plaque and effectively maintain oral health.
Yes, Davids toothpaste does not contain any ingredients that are derived from animals, or produced by bees. One of the most common ingredients found in toothpaste is glycerin which is most frequently produced from animal fats. Davids uses non-gmo domestic vegetable glycerin which is produced from oils of the soy plant.
Please know that we do not market Davids as a toothpaste for sensitive teeth, but we have had a number of customers report back to us that Davids has worked extremely well in combating their sensitive teeth issue. The high foaming action in most toothpaste tends to trigger the nerves of people with sensitive teeth, and since Davids has a more mild foaming action, this is helpful. Also, the crushed powdered limestone (calcium carbonate) in Davids is believed to plug the tubules (holes) to the nerves, so this also helps alleviate tooth sensitivity. Additionally, many toothpastes on the market use low grade abrasives that can feel gritty in your mouth and cause teeth to become increasingly sensitive. Davids uses high grade micro abrasives that are non-gritty, creating a smooth and creamy paste which is ideal for people with sensitive teeth. That being said, since everyone's mouth is different, the only way to truly know if Davids will help with your sensitive teeth, is to try brushing with Davids for yourself.
Please know that Davids is both fluoride free and SLS free and our ingredients are rated "1" by EWG (best rating possible) for ingredient safety, so generally speaking, Davids toothpaste is safe for all ages, including young children, which have a tendency to swallow some of the toothpaste. That being said, we cannot give any direct dental or medical advice, so we would recommend that you have your doctor and/or dentist review for your child's case.
We do not currently offer free samples, however, based on customer feedback and reviews, the odds are in your favor that you will like Davids.

About 1.5 Billion plastic toothpaste tubes end up in US landfills Each Year and we wanted to do better. You may have thought we selected the metal tube for it's modern aesthetic (that was part of it), but the main reasons Davids comes in metal tubes is for maintaining maximum freshness and for their ability to be recycled. Please see additional FAQs below for details on how to recycle Davids tubes.
Davids tubes are made out of aluminum metal and lined with a Food Grade Non-BPA liner so there is no paste to metal contact. This barrier helps prevent any leaching of the tube material into the paste and helps seal in the freshness.
Each tube of Davids comes with a metal tube roller (tube key), that is designed to slide on the end of the tube to roll up the metal tube as the toothpaste is being used and to squeeze the last bit of toothpaste out of the tube at the end.
A few things to note about recycling your Davids tube... you will need to clean the excess paste from the inside of the tube, so you will need to do a few things.
1. Take some scissors or shears and cut off both ends of the tube.
2. Cut a slit the full length of the tube to fold open the tube to access the inside of the tube for cleaning....the edges of metal are sharp, so please be careful.
3. Wash off the excess paste with running water....toothbrush can be helpful here for removing all the paste.
4. Discard metal in recycle bin. It will be up to your local waste management provider to properly sort/recycle as we do not currently take back used tubes for recycling.

Yes, the tube roller (tube key) included with each tube of Davids toothpaste is made from mild steel which is a recyclable material. If you use other products that come in a metal tube (medical ointments, lotions, etc.) consider repurposing your tube key by using with other metal tubes you may be using. If you have no further use for the tube key, you can place in your recycling bin.

Davids was founded by Eric David Buss in 2015. Eric didn't like how Erics Toothpaste sounded, so he went with his middle name, plus it's Davids vs. the "Goliath's" of the toothpaste industry so works that way too.
