Back to Basics - Cruelty Free & Vegan Dental Products

Cruelty Free and Vegan Dental Products Toothpaste Mouthwash Floss

Keeping it short and sweet for the third installment of my back to basics posts, this time we're covering off dental care (if you've missed my posts about basic cruelty free and vegan skincare click here, and for feminine products click here).



MOUTHWASH

Superdrug Pro Care Whitening Mouthwash


I'm sure you'll have noticed a running theme throughout these posts and that is the wonder that is Superdrug. For essentials such as dental products you really can't beat it; the products are well labelled, they're affordable (and almost always on offer), they're easy to get your hands on and they work.
I really like this mouthwash. It has no alcohol so it doesn't sting, it has a pleasant, long-lasting minty taste and it works well to keep my teeth looking clean and white.

FLOSS


Superdrug Total Care Dental Flossers with Toothpick


Ugh, I really hate flossing. There's just something so unnatural about shoving something in between your teeth. But it's one of life's little necessities, so might as well try and make it as bearable as possible.

I like to use these flossers rather than floss tape as the floss itself is really thin making it easier to get in between the teeth, and it also doesn't split or splinter like tape can. The mint ones had sold out when I purchased these, but they do exist. Also there's a handy little toothpick on the other end of the flosser which is a stroke of genius.

Again, floss isn't something you would necessarily associate with animal products, but some floss tapes are made from silk (which comes from a particular species of worm), and others are coated in beeswax, so it's always wise to check.

TOOTHPASTE


Superdrug Pro Care Sensitive Whitening Toothpaste


I don't particularly have sensitive teeth but I always choose this sensitive whitening toothpaste over the straight-up whitening one; in my opinion this actually whitens my teeth better than the whitening one does, and it also has a better, mintier flavour. It's definitely my toothpaste of choice.

  1. Cruelty free dental care was always a struggle when I became a more thoughtful consumer so I'm very thankful for Superdrug.
    Their toothbrushes are great too. Obviously toothbrushes can't be physically tested on animals but I don't like the thought of my money going to Colgate etc so I currently use Superdrugs which do the job just as well.
    I really want to try a bamboo toothbrush to reduce my use of plastic.

  4. According to me dental whitening is very complicated process so we should never attempt it on our own as teeth might get side effects from products. It is highly recommended to get it done from some experienced dentist Torrance.
