our story

Hi, I’m Hannah!

I started using hydrogen peroxide strips when I was 15 and experienced extreme pain, sensitivity…and eventual irreversible enamel damage. As I got older, I became more curious and started researching products, ingredients and other people’s experiences. I related to their “no pain, no gain” mentality, which sparked a burning question “why couldn’t we have all the gain…without the pain?!”

I started L.A. PACIFIC to make instant tooth whitening effective, safe and grounded in science. I partnered with dental and beauty insiders - together we dream stormed (i.e., stirred up our wildest ideas), tested and launched a premium advanced formulation that promises clinically proven whiter teeth in 60 seconds and is 100% enamel-safe.

About Us

  • Who created L.A. PACIFIC?

    Hannah Moore founded L.A. PACIFIC in 2019. Hannah partnered with one of Europe’s leading dental experts (aka dental nerds) and beauty insiders to formulate what she believes is the best whitening toothpaste out there. She set out to make teeth whitening accessible, effective and safe for your oral health.

  • Why did Hannah setup L.A. PACIFIC?

    Hannah started whitening her teeth in 2008 using hydrogen peroxide strips with no clue about ingredients or whitening methods. She suffered extreme pain and sensitivity (even laughing was an issue…and she’s very funny…and also writing these FAQs 😉).

    Over the years Hannah started to move away from the “no pain no gain mentality” finding it insane that we would invite in UNNECESSARY pain to gain ANYTHING. She started researching (her efforts are likened to a country wide search patrol) and was shocked at the ingredients that these big companies were putting in everyday products, vague product descriptions and how little they invested in clinically proving their claims.

    While the toothpaste industry is monopolised by a few big players Hannah decided it was time for change. We now have our L.A. PACIFIC fam – a whitening toothpaste range that is premium multi-action, effective, provides instant whitening results, proven by independent clinical tests and is good for your oral health.

  • Where did the name L.A. PACIFIC come from?

    Hannah visited Los Angeles (L.A.) in 2013 and was blown away by how health and wellbeing were simply a way of life. She also grew up near the ocean which formed a close tie to its depth, mass and how it reminds her of how connected we all are. The marriage of the two in our name is a symbol for us to keep an open mind allowing us to be inspired by other cultures; and with that to remember that whilst we all have our unique energetic waves we are all inherently connected as one big ocean called being human. Read more in her blog post here.

General Product Questions

  • Does L.A. PACIFIC work on composite bonding?

    Composite bonding is where a tooth-coloured resin material (a durable plastic) is applied to a portion of your teeth. Your teeth are made of a porous material meaning they stain easily (as staining agents form chemical bonds with your teeth) and they can also whiten easily.

    Unfortunately, bonding resin is nonporous, however, there are two types of stains that can develop on a composite:

    1. Small abrasions or cracks can develop allowing stains to penetrate the material. In this instance, polishing as part of your professional dental cleaning regime could work to restore brightness.

    2. Another possibility is that tiny molecules (from coffee, red wine, smoking etc) have bonded with the resin and built up over time. This is because the resin is typically a combination of glass or quartz that is in a plastic binding agent enabling it to absorb tiny molecules. This can build-up over time and give a discoloured appearance to the resin.So unfortunately our toothpaste will not stain the composite part of your tooth but will whiten the natural part of your tooth that is still visible.

  • Where can I find L.A. PACIFIC products?

    L.A. PACIFIC teeth whitening toothpaste can be found at any of the all Boots stores in the Republic of Ireland.Alternatively, you can shop the range right here, our Amazon store or Boots.ie.

    If you would like to stock L.A. PACIFC please email info@lapacific.ie.

  • How can I contact L.A. PACIFIC?

    For general enquiries please email info@lapacific.ie or write to us at L.A. PACIFIC, The National Science Park, Mullingar, Co.Westmeath, Ireland

  • What is the shelf life of L.A. PACIFIC Enzyme Whitening toothpaste?

    We are one of those pals that will be there if you need us – we have designed our toothpaste to last a solid 3 years. Once you’ve opened your product we recommend using with 1 year.

  • Are L.A. PACIFIC products travel-friendly?

    Firstly, we are honoured that L.A. PACIFIC makes the cut in your teeny tiny liquid travel allowance and can happily say YASSSSSS at 75ml we are travel-approved. Holibobs, work trip or that wedding you really don’t want to go to…We got you.

  • Can I use whilst pregnant or breastfeeding?

    Congratulations on your wee baba first of all! 😊 And yes, because we are aligned with clean beauty, we consciously select the highest-quality ingredients that do no present any toxic or potential for toxicity to you.

  • Can children use this toothpaste?

    Yes, our products are safe for your wee kiddies but we recommend adult use only (18 years and above).


    Our product contains 1400 ppm of Fluoride. Note official government guidance suggests that Children aged 7 years or above should only use products with less than 1400 ppm and Children aged below 7 years less than 1000 pm fluoride. Always check with your dentist.

  • Will using L.A. PACIFIC products make my teeth sensitive?

    No way Jose! We have carefully selected the highest quality ingredients to ensure our teeth whitening toothpaste only includes ingredients that present no known risk of creating sensitivity. This is the Clean Beauty revolution. 

  • What is RDA? What is abrasion?

    The American Dental Association (ADA) developed a method called Relative Dentin Abrasion (RDA) to determine the level of abrasivity of toothpastes or products that clean teeth. Abrasion is the level of effectiveness of a product to polish a surface. For example, sandpaper is a highly abrasive material used to polish wood surfaces.


    It is extremely important to understand how abrasive your toothpaste is because highly abrasive substances may be stripping your enamel and leaving you with sensitive teeth! Ouch. Our toothpaste has an RDA of 82 which is 35% less abrasive than your average whitening toothpaste (for sale in the UK and Ireland).

  • Can I use L.A. PACIFIC whitening products during my orthodontic treatment?

    Tooth be told we know there’s nothing sexy about your pal telling you that you have spinach in a bracket or the never smooth removal of your Invisalign tray. We are here to try and change that – our products can be used as a safe and effective way to whiten your orthodontic treatment unless otherwise advised by your dentist.  


    If you do have brackets (brace treatment) we believe using our products will minimise the contrast of the lighter spot where the bracket was placed versus the rest of your tooth which is exposed to staining materials.  

Specific Product Questions

  • What are the benefits of the 4 in 1 Action Enzyme Whitening?

    This is our OG formula that promises to brighten, clean, lighten and refresh.


    The Brightening is as a result of our whitening Enzyme that interacts with the sugars in your mouth to transform it into an organically produced hydrogen peroxide. We are the world’s first to use an enzyme in a whitening toothpaste!


    It Cleans as the Enzyme is eating the sugars in your mouth and putting them to good use it means that bacteria can’t feed of them. To get to you to that smug “OoOo I’ve just had my teeth cleaned by the dentist” feeling we have also added Pacific Sea Salt that gently exfoliates your teeth and Sodium Fluoride to prevent decay / tartar build-up.


    The Lightening action is achieved with our Californian opalescent crystals that leave a thin film that has a blue hue on your teeth leaving you with a glowing smile, especially when it catches the light making your teeth look whiter #highlighterforyourteeth.


    Finally, our toothpaste will keep your mouth Refreshed as an iced oat milk latte on a warm Californian day #itsMinttobe. We have got our hands on some of California’s premium mint leaves to leave you with crisp fresh kissable breath.

  • What is the difference between the 4 in 1 and the Extra Sensitive Enzyme Whitening Toothpaste?

    Our Extra Sensitive Enzyme Whitening toothpaste has all the same benefits of our 4 in 1 Action Enzyme Whitening toothpaste with the addition of Potassium Citrate. The use of Potassium Citrate is commonly used as an effective way  to reduce or alleviate the discomfort from sensitivity.


    Our founder, Hannah, knows from personal experience the pain that sensitive teeth can cause and understands that even when your teeth are sensitive you still want white teeth. This product is perfect for anyone looking to whiten teeth with zero sensitivity.

  • Where did you conduct your Independent Clinical Tests?

    We enlisted the smarty pants over at University of Indiana, USA to perform Stain Removal and Relative Dentin Abrasivity tests on our enzyme whitening formulas. These tests were conducted in March 2019.

Ingredients

  • Do your products contain Fluoride?

    Yes, our products contain 1400pm or 0.31% w/w. This is less than approved maximum level of Sodium Fluoride which is 1500pm as per the American Dental Association (ADA) #safetyfirst

  • Why do you use Fluoride in your products?

    There is an ongoing debate in the brushers world whether Fluoride should or shouldn’t be in toothpaste. Here at L.A. PACIFIC we passionately believe in the benefits of Fluoride as a method of anti-decay and for cleaning.

    We have aligned ourselves with the guidance from the American Dental Association (ADA) and many other recognised institutions on the safety approved levels of Fluoride. For example, all toothpastes with the ADA Seal of Acceptance must contain fluoride. 

  • Do L.A. PACIFIC products contain synthetic Hydrogen Peroxide?

    Nope. No. Zilch. Zero. Nada - and any other way you think of saying “No”. Synthetic Hydrogen Peroxide and the damaging effects (short and long term) is the reason why L.A. PACIFIC was founded.

  • What is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)?

    SLS is typically used as a surfactant or foaming agent. Some research has found that 85% of toothpastes on the market contain SLS. ⁠SLS can be taken from petroleum or vegetable based sources (e.g. coconut and/or palm kernel oil).⁠ ⁠ SLS doesn't actually play an active role in keeping your teeth clean BUT it can cause irritation in your mouth, tongue may start to have a weird texture, or the SLS may cause, and/or irritate canker sores. ⁠In other words, it’s a “K. Thank you, next” from us #nomsayin.

  • What is Triclosan?

    Triclosan is a badass bacteria killer BUT has been shown to cause gut inflammation and disruption to hormones. In 2016, the FDA banned the chemical from soaps as it presented significant risk for long-term harm…yet is still allowed in toothpaste. It’s a NO from us.

  • Do your products contain alcohol?

    No, our L.A. PACIFIC product family are a bunch of sober judges! We understand that certain religions or life choices mean that some of you may not want any Alcohol in your products.

  • Is Sorbitol a Sugar Alcohol?

    Oh we love it when you ask the science-y questions #NerdOut. Why yesss it is. Whilst its classification has "alcohol" in the name, Sorbitol does not contain ethanol (the compound that makes you drunky wunky feel a little funky…i.e., drunk).  This makes it appropriate for those who identify with Islam as their religion.

  • Do you test on animals?

    You mean putting innocent loveable fur babies under unnecessary stress, pain and at risk of death. Not in a million years. You couldn’t pay us to. Our enzyme instant teeth whitening toothpaste is 100% cruelty-free.


    In 2013, the European Commission implemented a complete ban on the sale of cosmetics developed through animal testing in the EU. This has further progressed with a request for a Worldwide Ban by 2023! #dreambig

  • Are your products Vegan?

    Yes, our whitening toothpastes are 100% vegan. There are no animal derived ingredients in any of our products and we are proudly certified by the Vegan Society.

Sustainability

  • Are your products recyclable?

    Yes, they are! Our tubes are made from sugar cane and our cartons are made from FSC wood. Just make sure you give your wee tube a snip, pop off your lid and wash to prepare it for recycling!

  • Do you offset your Carbon Footprint?

    We have partnered with C-Level to offset our Carbon Footprint by supporting some of their Plan Vivo Network of projects that work with indigenous forests and peoples.
