About Dr. Brite

Dr. Brite is an oral and skin care company that delivers safe, effective and affordable products for the entire family. Committed to creating all-natural, organic oral and skin care solutions, their formulas are made in small batches using the highest-quality, responsibly sourced ingredients.

Concerned with the harmful chemicals frequently found in everyday items like toothpaste, sisters Pooneh Ram DDS and Dr. Paris Sabo knew they had to do something. Together they created Dr. Brite, a nontoxic oral and skin care line that’s safe for both people and the environment. The Dr. Brite products are made in the USA through sustainable, eco-friendly and 100% certified cruelty-free practices, offering better health and opportunity for a more vibrant life for the planet and those living on it.

Dr. Brite is on a mission to make safe and healthy choices accessible for all families. They share this mission by donating 5% of their revenue towards providing natural dental care products to those in need and by educating children and adults the importance of hygiene and being mindful of toxic ingredients.

Our mission is to educate families about the need for safer products while providing effective, affordable alternatives to common cosmetics that contain harmful ingredients. We hope this will increase the availability and demand for healthier options for consumers in the marketplace. As a member of the B Corp community, we are honored to be identified with other like-minded organizations who are also dedicated to using business as a force for good.

The Change We Seek®

From their very beginning, Dr. Brite has been providing families with naturally safe oral and skin care alternatives while making positive changes in the way people make everyday decisions relating to social and environmental impact.

The personal care industry is under regulated and many harmful ingredients associated with cancer and other life-threatening diseases are present in majority of toothpaste, facial cleansers and other products we use on our bodies. But Dr. Brite wants to help change the marketplace, leading by example.

Dr. Brite has established a strict set of standards that prioritizes the health and well-being of people and the planet above all else. Ingredients are chosen based on safety and efficacy, and responsibly sourced from local suppliers. Dr. Brite uses sustainable manufacturing practices, eco-friendly packaging and is making every effort to become a zero waste company by 2019.
