We are passionate about supporting the American economy by manufacturing the Dr. Brite products in our Southern California facilities. To control the quality of our formulas, we choose to make small batches in our on-site laboratory instead of using foreign third party contract manufacturers.
Highest-Quality, American Ingredients
We buy certified organic or wildcrafted ingredients from American suppliers, even though they are often more expensive than foreign options. This ensures that Dr. Brite’s products are made with natural ingredients that are free of harmful chemicals, pesticides or preservatives. All of the Dr. Brite ingredients are of US origin, except the neem oil. It’s produced in America, but originally comes from neem plants grown in India.
Our US Manufacturing Practices
Our business operations and manufacturing facilities are located in Irvine, California. Locally, we provide jobs and create new opportunities for U.S. workers, who are dedicated to our ethical and sustainable practices. Dr. Brite is proud to be Leaping Bunny certified cruelty-free and a winner of the Burt’s Bees 2016 Natural Launchpad program for our eco-friendly initiatives.

What it Means to be Made in USA
The US government doesn’t certify that “Made in America” claims on labels are legitimate, making it very difficult for you to tell if an item is actually made in the States. According to the Fair Trade Commission (FTC), for a product to be called “Made in USA,” without qualifications or limits on the claim, the product must be "all or virtually all" made in the United States.
The term "United States," as referred to in the Enforcement Policy Statement, includes the 50 states, the District of Columbia and US territories and possessions. "All or virtually all" means that all significant parts and processing that go into the product must be of US origin.
We love to support other companies that are made in America! Here are a few sources to help you find other US made products:
