• 1983 - When their eldest child, Tammy, began swallowing her toothpaste, longtime health food store owners, Mike and Michelle realised that there was a need for an effective and pleasant tasting natural toothpaste that was free from SLS, parabens, preservatives, sugar and fluoride-free and preferably made in Australia.

  • 1984 - Mike and Michelle couldn’t find what they were looking for, so it wasn’t long before they became pioneers.  After a lot of research and development, they launched Grants of Australia, with a mission to provide families with an affordable and natural toothpaste that was made in Australia – a mission that’s held true since the first batch of Grants Mineral & Herbal toothpaste (now called Mild Mint) came off the production line in 1984.
