say hello® to a new kind of naturally friendly™ oral care, created by a small, passionate crew using thoughtful, effective ingredients so delicious you’ll rush to brush. we believe in a brusher’s right to choose, creating toothpastes to meet a variety of needs or tastes, including adults and kids, extra whitening and sensitivity relief, and more.
we thought oral care was unfriendly, and we thought ‘hello’ was the friendliest word around. for us, hello is a friendly greeting and initiates a conversation. that’s what hello is to us – a conversation with our fans!
yes, we did!
hello® is on a mission to make the world a friendlier place, starting with your mouth. we’re a new kind of naturally friendly™ oral care, created by a small, independent crew, using thoughtful, effective ingredients so delicious you’ll rush to brush.
say hello® to a new kind of naturally friendly™ oral care, created by a small, passionate crew, using thoughtful, effective ingredients so delicious you’ll rush to brush. our first product was developed in 2013 and on shelf at national retailers within six months.
hello® was dreamed up by one of the most creative minds in consumer goods: Craig Dubitsky. prior to hello, Craig cofounded eos, a women’s personal care brand known for its ubiquitous spherical lip balm. he also served as the CMO of Popcorn, Indiana, and as SVP of Venture Development at Simon Property Group where he led the initial investment in Method Products and served as a Board Member from 2001 to 2004. you can learn more about him here.
walking down the oral care aisle, Craig was struck by the fact that other brands treated your mouth as a war zone, talking about killing and fighting odors, germs and bacteria. combined with the images of stylized and holographic extracted teeth, he saw the opportunity to bring personal back to personal care and create a naturally friendly approach to oral care. that approach became hello and comes to life in everything we do: product development, company culture and our relationships with fans, retailers and partners alike.
hello® is on a mission to make the world a friendlier place, starting with your mouth. that’s why we make naturally friendly™ toothpastes that are thoughtful, effective, and delicious.
like everything at hello®, product ideas are a team effort, and we all share what we’d like to see. for example, we noticed the trend of people using oil pulling techniques to clean their teeth and wanted to give a nod to the practice in a hello toothpaste variety. using our guiding principles of making products that are thoughtful, effective, and delightful, Connie, our amazing R&D lead, figured out that coconut oil’s moisturizing properties would be the perfect ingredient in our new sensitivity relief fluoride toothpaste with coconut oil.
hello is also serious about using thoughtful ingredients like aloe vera, xylitol and erythritol and takes pride in being free of synthetic dyes, artificial sweeteners/flavors, parabens, microbeads, triclosan, and gluten.
Harbor, our company dog, is our first office greeter and calming cuddler.
the founder of hello®, Craig Dubitsky, has been Skyping since before it was cool. we’re putting the personal back in personal care and believe it is important to be able to see and connect with hello teammates in real time as a part of this mission.
right now, we have a small, independent crew of twelve. you can learn more about each of us at www.helloproducts/our-people.
hello® is based in the heart of Montclair, N.J. fun fact: our office was a former billiards hall that we converted into an open concept loft!
a lot. it’s natural and fits our loft office style.
we’re a joking bunch and like our toothpastes, we can’t pick just one.
yes. safety and efficacy are of the utmost importance to us. hello® toothpastes are formulated in accordance with FDA requirements and manufactured in facilities that meet the FDA’s Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs). on a majority of our fluoride offerings, we’ve done third party testing that demonstrated our pastes are effective at removing stains while being gentle on your teeth. These tests are called PCRs (pellicle cleaning ratios) and RDAs (relative dentin abrasivity) – more information can be found at helloproducts.com/professionals.
we take pride in our commitment in using thoughtful, effective ingredients that are so delicious that will make everyone will rush to brush. like any product, please use as directed and intended – and only on humans.
