Smileactives - behind the brand

The Smileactives mission is to develop technologies and oral care products that can be easily used at home.

Smileactives works with consumers, dentists, and hygienists to discover which tooth whitening product features matter most. Factors include: ease of use, the number of days to noticeable whitening, and specific types of stain removal, including red wine and coffee.

Responding to customers' requests for a whitening product that worked quickly while simply brushing teeth, Smileactives developed Polyclean® technology, as featured in the Smileactives Power Whitening Gel.

The Smileactives ORIGINAL Tooth Whitening pen was launched on QVC in 2010 as the first professional strength at-home whitening pen. Two years later, Smileactives launched the VIBRITE® Tooth-Whitening pen, the first-ever vibratory applicator device for tooth whitening.
