If the very thought of brushing your teeth with animal by-products terrifies you then you’ll be relieved to hear that vegans don’t have to give up brushing their teeth to help save animals! I’ve never trusted standard toothpastes for other reasons too, I always end up looking for dentist recommendations (the latest I found was a Dentist in Citrus Heights) that offer professional cleaning because I worry about all the harsh chemicals used in them.
I’m stoked to share with you all a cruelty-free and certified vegan toothpaste brand that I recently discovered called SprinJene!
Finding a toothpaste can be a bit personal because we all have our own opinions and expectations in a toothpaste, considering we use it 2 or more times in a given day! Not to mention we should always confirm with a professional, like this dentist in Tallahassee, that we are using the correct toothpaste for our teeth.
Now if you’re like most people and didn’t grow up using natural or vegan toothpaste, it can be hard finding and making the switch to a brand of toothpaste that you’re unfamiliar with.
After using SprinJene toothpaste for a week now, I am blown away by how comparable their toothpaste matches up to the stuff I was using before going vegan. If you’re just making the switch to vegan toothpaste or you miss the consistency and taste of your childhood toothpaste, I highly recommend trying out SprinJene!

The Power of Black Seed Oil in Toothpaste
What really sets SprinJene‘s toothpaste apart from other vegan options is their unique formula consisting of all natural, cold pressed, black seed oil. “[…] scientific studies have documented remarkable results supporting black seed’s antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits.”
This is totally new to me and I’m intrigued about the health benefits of using black seed oil as a key ingredient in toothpaste! Brush up (haha, get it?) on the health benefits of Black Seed Oil here!
SprinJene certified vegan and fluoride toothpastes comes in 2 options; Fresh Boost and White Boost.
Fresh Boost SprinJene Vegan Toothpaste
The Fresh Boost fluoride toothpaste by SprinJene comes out of the tube in this vibrant green gel consistency and at first, I found the smell of mint to be on the stronger side (I’m sensitive to smell) but the taste and flavour of mint is mild and pleasant.
The toothpaste has very tiny pearlescents in it that not only looks really pretty (imagine unicorns and glitter!) but the micro-pearls of fine silica claim to be gentler on our tooth enamel compared to conventional toothpastes that uses larger and harsher silica. And as any good Dentist in Santa Barbara would say, protecting that enamel is very important.
The formula is quite thick so you don’t need nearly as much as shown in the picture to easily build up to a foam.
White Boost SprinJene Vegan Toothpaste
SprinJene also has another variety of vegan and fluoride toothpaste called White Boost. This one has a white paste consistency which is what I’m used to using!
The White Boost toothpaste has a more subtle scent of mint but the same mild taste and flavour as the Fresh Boost option. If you’re sensitive to smell (like me!), I think the White Boost option will be more suitable.
I was expecting the black seed oil to give off a distinctive taste but I can’t even taste it in there!
And is it just me or every time I switch to a brand new formula or brand of toothpaste.. I feel that my teeth are noticeably whiter? It may totally be a placebo effect but nonetheless, since using SprinJene’s toothpastes.. I’ve noticed my teeth are whiter!
For the purpose of this review, I used the Fresh Boost and White Boost on alternating days for a week so I’m not entirely sure which one of the two I should be giving kudos to for helping to brighten up my smile! =)
Final Thoughts on SprinJene Vegan & Fluoride Toothpastes
Now to be honest with you all, I’m not too picky when it comes to my toothpaste. It’s just gotta leave my breath smellin’ fresh and my teeth looking clean! Which I feel SprinJene has easily accomplished.
To put SprinJene’s toothpaste to the test, I got my oh-so-very picky boyfriend to try it out. I’ve been trying to get my boyfriend to convert to a cruelty-free and vegan toothpaste for years now but he keeps going back to his coveted Crest toothpaste. He doesn’t like the consistency of any of the vegan toothpaste options I’ve got him thus far.
The texture of SprinJene’s vegan toothpaste is comparable to the Crest toothpaste that he’s been using for years and I’m so happy to have finally found him a vegan option that he is willing to use and switch to!
Not to mention, SprinJene’s ingredients are a whole lot more natural than any of the mainstream toothpastes he’s been using! So, additional thumbs up to SprinJene’s toothpastes!
Does SprinJene get the boyfriend approval? It’s a resounding YES!
