Zimba is a teeth whitening company that was founded to make it easier and more affordable for people to whiten their teeth. The company offers whitening strips, whitening powders, LED whitening lights, whitening pens, and other oral hygiene products. The company’s mission is to provide teeth whitening that’s more accessible than professional whitening services and high-end products you’ll find at the store, and to provide its whitening products at an affordable price.
Zimba offers at-home whitening products for a single purchase and as a subscription service with its whitening strips. Customers can also choose the bundle and save option to get more products at a discounted rate. With its loyalty program customers can also build up points for discounts on products.
Zimba offers a variety of products for one-time purchase, but customers can also subscribe to receive monthly boxes, bi-monthly boxes, or a box every three months of its whitening strips. Customers can choose their flavor of whitening strip, the strips are shipped in 2-4 days, and then the strips can be peeled off their wrapping and applied daily. Each box contains 28 strips, or 14 days worth of whitening and Zimba claims that customers should see results after the first use, with best results after 14 consecutive days.
This whitening strip subscription service is unique in offering customers a choice in flavor. Many customers complain about the taste of whitening strips, so offering flavors like coconut, peach, and a variety of mints is a nice addition to the product.
Zimba’s whitening formula reduces tooth sensitivity when customers are whitening their teeth. If customers do experience some sensitivity during treatment, it shouldn’t last. Zimba also offers a desensitizing pen for instances when teeth do feel a little sensitive post treatment. The pen remineralizes and strengthens tooth enamel, eliminating a sensitive sensation.
In addition to whitening strips and LED lights, Zimba also offers teeth whitening powder. The powder is made from natural ingredients and is hydrogen peroxide free, offering a nice alternative to traditional teeth whitening products. The powder removes years of surface stains that build up on plaque and tartar.
One jar of Zimba’s activated charcoal powder or mint powder lasts two to three months. The powder works when dipped with a wet toothbrush and then brushed on teeth for one to two minutes. Since the product is made from natural ingredients and cleans stains and plaque from teeth, it’s great for general oral hygiene and safe on gums.
Customers can gain access to discounts through Zimba’s rewards program. Customers can create an account with Zimba and then earn specific amounts of points for accomplishing specific tasks. These include referring a friend to Zimba, posting a video review of its products, following on social media, posting before and after photos, and more. Customers also instantly earn one point for every $1 spent on Zimba.com.
Points can be redeemed for discounts on Zimba products. At specified point thresholds customers can earn $10, $20, and $30 off on product purchases. This rewards system is a great perk that not many whitening companies have.
Zimba strives to make a difference by partnering with America’s ToothFairy, a non profit organization that provides dental care to underprivileged children all over the world. Through America’s ToothFairy, a portion of every Zimba purchase goes towards providing grants for children who need dental care that costs more than their family can afford. The services provided include extensive restorative care, specialized services, dental appliances, orthodontic care, anaesthesia, and sedation.
Zimba’s whitening strip treatment was designed for customers to wear both a top and bottom teeth whitening strip for 30 minutes a day. This is an average amount of time for many whitening strips on the market, but it’s a long treatment time compared to whitening gel or serum that other companies offer. Some companies promise customers results after using whitening products for just five minutes a day.
