What do you do when you can’t find a healthy, pleasant tasting, fluoride-free toothpaste, suitable for the whole family? You make your own. That’s exactly what Michael and Michelle Aronson did when over 30 years ago when their young daughter Tammy began swallowing fluoride containing toothpaste.
There was no fluoride free toothpaste on the market at the time which all the family enjoyed, so Michael and Michelle set out to make their own. The name ‘Grants’ comes from the street in which they lived at the time. Their daughter Tammy has since joined them and together they are committed to producing affordable, natural products for the next generation of health conscious families.
