Professional Beauty speaks to beconfiDent
What is the background of the company and what types of products do you sell?
beconfiDent is a leading Global home teeth whitening and Oral Care brand that is taking the UK by storm. beconfiDent launched into the UK in January 2013 and based Cheshire, in the north west of England.

beconfiDent teeth whitening products are completely peroxide free, conforming to the updated Cosmetics Products Regulations September 2012
beconfiDent has a varied range of teeth whitening products to suit every individual’s needs, ranging from traditional kits with whitening gel and mouth trays, handy on-the-go teeth whitening pens to a revolutionary 2 step dual foam whitening system. We also have a range of accessories to complement our products, including mouth trays cases and cosmetic travel cases to keep kits in tip top condition!
Who developed beconfiDent products?
beconfiDent was the vision of Dr Martin Giniger, a well-respected professional within the Dental industry who has recently been referred to in the Wall Street Journal as being "The Thomas Edison of oral health and teeth whitening product innovation”. During his career, he has developed many products that are well known in the market place, such as Colgate Total Toothpaste and Zoom Teeth Whitening, before he took the step to develop and manufacture beconfiDent Peroxide free home teeth whitening. beconfiDent products are manufactured in Dr Giniger’s FDA approved laboratory in Miami, USA.
What is you’re most popular product and what do you think makes it popular?
The beconfiDent Teeth Whitening Kit is our most popular product. The kit is a 10 day treatment and we guarantee the user will gain visible results in just 1-2 treatments (30 minutes). We designed the kit to contain 3 mouth trays, rather than the usual two supplied with other brands, so you have one spare to use as a trial to moulding the mouth tray for a personal fit or to keep safe in case another is lost or damaged. The kit also includes a tooth shade guide and complete instructions.
What makes your products special over the competition?
Our products are expertly developed by Dr Martin Giniger and manufactured in his FDA approved laboratory, adhere to all current EU / UK Regulations and whiten your teeth safely yet effectively!

What tips would you give salon owners looking to introduce a new line into their salon?
Give beconfiDent a prime location in your salon; on a reception desk or prominent shelving, put the posters in noticeable places such as the entrance door, salon window or where it will be seen when clients are receiving treatments or in the salon waiting room, ensure staff have tried and love the product and are fully knowledgeable about it so they are able to talk to their customers about the brand and the products.
