A WORD FROM SPOTLIGHT ORAL CARE

Founded in 2016 by certified dentist sisters, Dr. Lisa and Dr. Vanessa Creaven, Spotlight Oral Care aim to create the best oral health products, to educate and to empower people to engage with customised preventative oral care. As dentists, they have a unique insight into the needs and wants of their patients. Their clinically proven range of products combine the latest advances in oral care research with the highest quality of clean, harm-free and active ingredients. Having identified the lack of sustainability with billions of toothpaste tubes sitting in landfill each year, they made the move to become more environmentally friendly and aware. All Spotlight Oral Care products are vegan-friendly, toxin-free, cruelty-free and palm oil free. The toothpaste tubes are made from a by-product of sugar cane making them the world’s first ever 100% recyclable tube, completely revolutionising the oral care industry.
