try looking for tom's of maine, it's vegan and doesn't test on animals. they have a bunch of other products too (deoderant, etc). it should be somewhat easy to find too, i know cvs usually carries it (or you can ask them to order it).
Tom's of Maine makes a fine product. What is especially cool is that they offer flavors in other than peppermint (fennel and cinnamon). Oddly enough, my husband has acid reflux disease and becomes ill if he uses peppermint flavored toothpaste (peppermint is one of the no nos for acid reflux). He loves the cinnamon flavored paste.
Jason's is good, but they leave a bit of a weird aftertaste.
You could make your own, especially if you'd like to avoid flouride for reasons of mercury amalgam fillings and the like. I have a recipe I got from Organic Beauty should you be interested. It's comprised mostly of baking soda and various essential oils to promote gum health.
Tom's of Maine has more products than that. I just got "Silly Strawberry" yesterday, it tastes good. Also, it's good for vegans because they donate to the Jane Goodall institute. And as for deodorant, I've never seen Tom's of Maine, but I use Right Guard by Gillette, which according to www.muslimconsumergroup.com contains no animal products and Gillette has been on an animal testing ban for 6 years, which, according to PETA, means they have a temporary ban but still get on the "Companies that Test" list. Silly Peta, tricks are for kids.
because i have to. well, i'm not gonna die if i don't use it, but then i wouldn't be able to eat ice cream, smile in winter, go to the dentist and get my teeth polished without crying... ack! i don't have to justify myself.
