No wonder more and more people are now using all natural toothpaste. All you have to do is take a look at all the crap and chemicals that are found in some toothpaste, and you can understand why this is occurring?
You don't need to be a rocket scientist to realise that the chemicals found in standard toothpaste, really should not be going into our body.
They can include nasties such as Triclosan, Fluoride, artificial sweeteners, saccharin, parabens etc. Exposure to these chemicals can make you sick and ill. Here is a pretty cool video on what is added to standard toothpaste now a days.
Fortunately there is a good variety of all natural toothpaste out in the marketplace today. This gives us consumers an alternative to using those chemical infused 'nasty' products.
You might find that some natural toothpaste may taste, look and act different ( less foamy) to what you are used to. From our experience, we found that most of the ones we trialled were more effective than standard chemical laden type toothpaste.
You will find that the best place to get these all natural toothpaste's is off the net, or from your local health store.
UGLY BY NATURE
What a cool name for an all natural toothpaste. This was the first thought we had when we first spotted UGLY BY Nature on Indigogo.com (crowd funding website). It became even cooler once we watched the start up video on its Raw, Whipped, Toothpaste and realised it had Aloe Vera in it.
So being the good new start up supporters which we are, we decided to open our wallets and support the start up company 'Ugly by Nature', and decided to also get a few tubes of toothpaste to trial out ourselves.
The Ugly Toothpaste tubes themselves were branded in funky packaging, which was really different compared to other toothpastes I had bought in the past. The two that we had ordered was Extreme Mint and Spankin Spearmint.
The first time I squeezed the product out of the tube I totally understood why it was called Ugly by nature toothpaste. It was a horrible grey blue color and boy it looked ugly...and unusual for a toothpaste. It looked like some sort of filler that you would use to fix a dent in a car. The reason it’s the grey blue color, is that is does not have any dyes or colors added. When these ingredients mix together this is the Ugly color that is made.
We followed the instructions. It was a really different brushing experience. It felt really unusual and like it was cleaning your teeth with really really fine sand paper. This was the Bentonite Clay in action. When you eventually rinsed your mouth it was horrible (ugly) to see what comes out of your mouth at the end.
For people that are used to using nice and white clinical toothpaste, Ugly toothpaste isn’t for you.
For the people that want a clean like no other tooth paste...It’s way worth trying out. Not long after we started using Ugly by nature toothpaste we noticed that our teeth were becoming a lot whiter which was an added bonus (I just read that the company states that this toothpaste naturally whitens your teeth, and from what I have seen I would have to agree with them).
We also started to notice the state of of gums improved in only a short time. I would go out on a limb and say this was probably due to the Aloe Vera that is one of of its main ingredient.
The negatives for this item for some might be price. At around $9 USD it may be hard for people to justify paying that much, when you can get a off the shelf standard toothpastes cheap ☹. Also as its made in the USA, it will take longer for any non U.S residents to get hold of this.
The positives are that it’s an all natural toothpaste, which of course means there are no nasty chemicals etc in its make up ☺.
Another cool fact I found out about ugly by nature was that they don’t test on animals and the toothpastes are vegan.
Its better than any of the other all natural toothpastes I have tried so far, and I have tried quite a few different types ( such as; Nature's Gate, Jason, Forever Living, Mondere, Grants, Woolworths, Red Seal and Kiss my Face etc).
I guess if I had to describe it to someone that had not used it before I would say its a totally natural toothpaste with grunt!
I guess the fact that it is an all natural toothpaste and it has Aloe Vera gel as one of the ingredients, is one of the main benefit of this toothpaste. Here is more information about the benefits of Aloe Vera.
It may take a few times to get used to this toothpaste. I would recommend you live on the edge and try this as I will be surprised if you can find your self a more effective all natural toothpaste with Aloe Vera in it.....(open for suggestions of course). There is no doubt that I will be continuing to use ugly Toothpaste, for sure.
Score Rating - ☺☺☺☺/5. (It looses a smiley rating due to it being so Ugly).

Ok Here is our 2nd and 3rd choices for a great all natural Toothpaste. Even though they are more like a gel than traditional toothpaste, we found they work better than the other toothpastes we have been using and trialling.
Another cool name for a toothpaste…lol
This came in a close second to Ugly.
We liked the Triple Action, antioxidant defenders,: Co-Q10, Tea Tree with Xylitol and Aloe. It had a great taste and was no harsh.
Technically this is an Aloe Vera Tooth Gel and you could say is not really a real toothpaste. We have decided to include Aloe Vera Tooth Gel in our top choices because they worked really well and worked better than most of the other natural toothpastes we trialled. Like the Ugly Toothpaste, Kiss my Face did magic not only on our teeth, but also with our gums.
Ingredients: Vegetable Glycerin, Water, Hydrated Silica, Sorbitol, Xylitol, Calcium Carbonate, Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract, Cetraria Islandica (Iceland Moss) Extract, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Stevia Rebaudiana Extract, Natural Flavor, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Citrate, Potassium Sorbate
Score Rating -☺☺☺1/2 out of 5. A really great product.
Forever Bright Toothgel by Forever Living Products.
Our 3rd Choice was an interesting one. It was very similar to the Kiss my Face. It used stabilised Aloe vera and Bee Propolis in its ingredients. It was gentle to use and seemed really effective on my teeth and gums.
When we did our research for this Aloe Vera Tooth gel, we were surprise how many really great reviews there was for this product. Forever living is one of the worlds biggest grower and distributor of Aloe vera.
I can't fault them on this product that they have made. Over the time we tried it out, if worked a treat.
Score Rating -☺☺☺/5 It gets a top 3 finish because of the Bee Propolis.
