Here is a list of some of the vegan toothpastes and mouthwashes currently available in the UK.
Found in Holland & Barrett and online. The Sensitive, Whitening and Children’s are suitable for vegans, but the Triple Action is not vegan. Info from website:
“The Triple Action Toothpaste incorporates the antimicrobial agent Carboxymethyl Chitosan which plays a role in neutralizing pH/acid in the mouth. Chitosan is derived from crustaceans and this therefore not suitable for vegetarians and vegans.”
Available in Sainsburys along with many other pharmacies and supermarkets. Confirmed no animal derivatives on their FAQ (states vegetarian, but no animal derivatives means vegan too).
“BlanX® contains no animal fats or other derivatives.”
These own brand toothpastes are vegan (Co-op clearly mark their vegan products with ‘V – no animal ingredients’).
All types are vegan. Available from Holland & Barrett and health food shops, as well as various websites including their own.
Lush do a range of tooth powders, mouthwash tabs and ‘toothy tabs’, available in store and on their website. All of the current range are marked vegan.
