Why Is There Animal Fat In My Toothpaste?

Why Is There Animal Fat In My Toothpaste?

February 10, 2018


One of the things you may have overlooked when going vegan is your toothpaste. Here is why so many vegans are adding UGLY by nature toothpaste to their daily regimen. 

Most toothpastes use glycerin, which is a sweet, odorless, clear liquid at room temperature and sourced from animal fat (pig and cow) and/or vegetable oil (corn or soybean). If your toothpaste states "vegetable glycerin", it is most likely from GMO corn and/or soy. Glycerin is most commonly used in toothpastes and soaps and it is added to toothpaste to keep it from drying out. It serves no purpose in oral care health. 

This is the toothpaste you now want to brush with everyday

Vegan toothpaste


UGLY by nature toothpaste DOES NOT use glycerin, instead we use organic coconut oil for its anti-fungal, antibacterial, antiviral, antimicrobial and anti inflammatory properties.

Coconut activated charcoal is also added to remove stains and keep your pearly whites WHITE.  

Another important ingredient is organic diatomaceous earth which contains silica. It's great for cleaning teeth and removing plaque and tarter. Silica plays an important role in promoting healthy teeth and bones.

We also use bentonite clay which binds to unhealthy substances, toxins and helps remineralize teeth. It is abrasive enough to remove plaque but not harm your enamel.  

The xylitol (sweetener) in UGLY by nature toothpaste is sourced from NON-GMO birch. Why do we use this? Xylitol decreases the incidence of dental caries by increasing salivary flow and pH 13 and reducing the number of cariogenic (MS) and periodontopathic (Helicobacter pylori) bacteria, plaque levels, xerostomia, gingival inflammation, and erosion of teeth (1). Xylitol may also be sourced from corn which is most likely GMO. Buyer beware!

UBN comes in 10 amazing flavors ORGANIC flavors. When "flavor" is listed as ingredient it can constitute anything and you really do not know what you are getting. 

We also filter water in the toothpaste thru reverse osmosis. This helps remove as much fluoride as possible, for a true fluoride free toothpaste.

With hundreds of 5 STAR reviews you can see why everyone is making the switch.
