Premium Natural Toothpaste - Peppermint
Davids premium natural toothpaste is made using the highest quality natural ingredients to safely & effectively whiten teeth, fight plaque, and freshen breath.
Davids is also committed to using premium USA origin ingredients for the highest quality possible and to support American jobs.
Fluoride Free - Davids is committed to using only safe natural ingredients to promote both personal & oral health. They have chosen to not include fluoride in their formulation, due to health concerns surrounding this ingredient. Every toothpaste manufacturer that includes fluoride is required to print the following warning label on their packaging:
"Keep out of reach of Children under 6 years of age. If more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away."
You wont find this warning label on Davids toothpaste, since their toothpaste is fluoride-free.
Sulfate Free - (No SLS) - Sulfate based chemicals, most commonly Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), is a chemical used by most toothpaste companies to produce the foaming action of the toothpaste. Unfortunately, sulfates are harmful to the environment and may also be harmful to your body. Some people experience mouth sores from using traditional toothpaste with sulfates, because of the harshness of this chemical. Davids has substituted SLS with a more natural ingredient derived from coconut oil (sodium cocoyl glutamate), which is sulfate-free.
No Artificial Flavors, Sweeteners, Colors, or Preservatives - Davids eliminated the artificial ingredients that are found in most other toothpastes and found safe natural alternates. The result is a toothpaste that is naturally sweet (not too sweet), naturally flavored, and naturally preserved.
100% USA Farmed Natural Mint Oil Flavoring - Davids partnered with leading mint experts to develop a custom mint flavor, using premium mint oils from various mint growing regions around the United States. These oils were blended together to create their custom mint flavoring that leaves incredibly fresh minty breath. Other companies use artificial mint flavoring or inferior imported mint oil. Once you try Davids toothpaste, with their custom blend of premium USA produced mint oil, you will not want to go back!
Not just MADE IN USA... USA Origin too (big difference!) - While talking to suppliers, Davids discovered that most of the big toothpaste companies buy ingredients that come from overseas (mostly China & India), and mix them in their US factory and stamp "Made in USA" on their package. At Davids, they take a much different approach...they do their best to use only premium ingredients that are farmed, mined, and processed in the USA.... 98% of their ingredients are USA origin (2% Japan), supporting the sustainability of the USA economy and American jobs!
Sustainability....Nature+America+You - Environmental sustainability is extremely important, but they take a more holistic approach. Davids is focused on sustaining the environment through the packaging they use... sustaining the USA economy and American jobs by using the highest possible content of USA origin ingredients and packaging.... sustaining YOU and your health, by only using safe natural ingredients.... Nature+America+You is more than what is printed on the packaging... it is reflected in their toothpaste and everything they do.
Cruelty Free - Davids does not do animal testing in the development of their products. Davids believes all life should be valued and respected. Davids Toothpaste is a member of Leaping Bunny (www.leapingbunny.org), which is a coalition of companies dedicated to the promotion of humane animal treatment.

Ingredients + Benefits
Calcium Carbonate - Natural material mined from the earth. Used as a mild abrasive to help prevent plaque buildup, remove surface stains, and whiten & polish teeth.
Purified Water - Used to blend ingredients and give texture.
Sorbitol - Natural sweetener made from corn that keeps toothpaste moist and not dry out during its shelf life.
Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda)- Natural material mined from the earth. Used to neutralize the plaque forming acids in your mouth. Helps prevent plaque buildup, remove surface stains, and whiten & polish teeth.
Vegetable Glycerin - Davids uses only food grade domestic non-gmo vegetable glycerin derived from vegetable oils ( not to be confused with industrial glycerin or other glycerin products produced from animal fats). Used to moisten the mouth and enhance the natural mint oil flavor. Also used as a natural preservative to keep the paste moist and to keep the ingredients from separating.
Hydrated Silica - Natural material from the earth that is used to help remove surface stains and whiten & polish teeth. Others use low quality imported silica with large abrasive particles that can scratch or damage the enamel.... Davids uses only the highest quality USA made silica with ultra fine microscopic particles designed to safely clean and polish the enamel on your teeth.
Xylitol (birch derived) - a five-carbon sugar used as a sweetener, but more importantly, has the effect of reducing plaque formation and inhibits enamel demineralization. We use only a premium USA produced xylitol derived from birch trees, which is considered the best for both you and the environment. Research studies show that xylitol works to reduce the formation of cavities.
Sodium Cocyl Glutamate - Natural alternative to SLS which is derived from coconut oil and sulfate free. Used to create a mild foaming action which suspends the other ingredients in your mouth while brushing, helping the cleaning and whitening process.
Carrageenan- Derived from seaweed. Used to give toothpaste its gel consistency. (NOT to be confused with poligeenan - formerly referred to as degraded carrageenan which causes much confusion).
Mint Oil - Derived from natural mint leaves. Used to give the toothpaste a natural mint flavor to freshen your breath. We developed a custom blend of ultra premium, USA produced, mint oils from various mint growing regions around the US to create a one of a kind mint flavor that is amazing!
Stevia (Leaf Extract) - Derived from the stevia plant. Used as a natural sweetener and to further enhance the natural mint oil flavoring.

In 2011, Davids founder, Eric David Buss, began looking into the ingredients being used in the "natural" toothpaste he was using, and found that many of the ingredients were unhealthy. After looking for a better alternative, and not happy with what was available, a "simple" idea of creating his own toothpaste was formed. This initial idea turned into a four year obsession to develop the very best natural toothpaste possible, thus Davids was born.
