Colgate-Palmolive, the world leader in oral care, introduces the Colgate® Optic White™ Toothbrush + Whitening Pen - the first-ever toothbrush with a built-in whitening pen.

The Colgate® Optic White™ Toothbrush + Whitening Pen provides a unique way to integrate effective whitening into the daily oral care routine. This premium toothbrush is specially designed with polishing bristles and whitening cups to help remove surface stains.
