Yes i know that this question has been asked over 20 times and each and every answer seems to have the same response and no new information! I've contacted all the suppliers mentioned and only 1 USED to sell them at wholesale and zeus sells them for double the price you'd pay in walmart!!

I'm seriously beginnig to wonder if salehoo is actually genuine in its claims i mean for example on 8 out of 10 supposed "wholesalers" turned out to be retail ONLY and never offered a wholesale division or service at all! I've reported this to salehoo and am still waiting for a response!

Back on to the whitestrips, since no one is forthcoming in any real assistance i would be willing to pay upto $100 for 5 BONAFIDE leads on GENUINE wholesalers! Those that are worried about competition have no fear as these are destined for the middle east market.

HI dagsky,

Welcome to SaleHoo! :) I'll do my best to search, no need for you to give $100, it's what we do for your membership. :)

Kindly give me a day or two and I will be back as soon as I find something.

Take care.

thank you for your reply. I am already aware that costco,sams,bj's sell these but they are not at wholesale price. It would also be beneficial to investigate what KIND of wholesaler might stock these. I have tried a fair number of druggists and they do not stock these and nor do the vast majority of dental suppliers that i have managed to locate. It also may be beneficial to list a few directories to search eg Yell but searching certain keywords would be of great help.

Wholesalers that cater to the grocery industry will probably have them, dagsky. Try Link hidden: Login to view and Link hidden: Login to view.

Hi dagsky,

I'd like to update you that I was able to chat with Link hidden: Login to view and got the following information.

Due to the structure of our sales operation, we don't sell our products directly to individual consumers.
But if you're a business representative interested in exporting P&G products, please fax your inquiry or proposal to the attention of the Export Manager for the appropriate region. For Europe/Russia/Middle East/Africa 41-58-004-3746

Or you can send us an email at...

I went to their customer help site, (note that Crest is manufactured by Procter & Gamble), and was given the following information -

How can I order P&G products for my business?
We appreciate your interest in P&G products. If you own a store and want to order directly from us, our minimum requirements are a combined full semi-truckload of Laundry, Cleaning, Paper, Food and Beverage brands or 300 cases of Beauty and Health Care items. If you're able to order this amount, please call our corporate office at 513-983-1100 or for Beauty and Health Care products, call 1-800-692-0132.

If our minimum requirements are too large for your operation, you might purchase our products through a wholesaler. We wish we could help you find one in your area who carries specific P&G products but we don't have that information on hand. We market nearly 300 brands of consumer products nationally to thousands of retailers and wholesalers who sell them to an even greater number of retail outlets. To find a wholesaler that's right for you, consider the following sources:

- Business to Business Yellow Pages for distributors specific to your needs such as, Drug Wholesalers, Health & Beauty, etc.
- Industry Trade Journals
- Networking with other retailers
- Searching the Internet. A link that may be helpful is:

How can I buy your products directly from you?
We may offer direct sales of a small number of products, but we're currently unable to sell all our products directly to individuals. Nor do we have a list of stores that carry a specific product, size, or version. Since we sell our products to large distribution centers, there's no one wholesaler who services an entire area. For instance, large chains that have their own distribution centers buy directly from us. Others may buy from a smaller wholesaler.

If you're looking for large sizes of a readily available product or want to buy it in bulk, you may want to check with club stores in your area since they often stock larger sizes and sell products in case lots. People who use large quantities of a specific brand find this more convenient and economical than purchasing small amounts at a time.

As stated in their website, you can find Crest 3D White products at many major e-retailers such as,,,,, Target, Walmart, and, among others.

I have also requested for leads to their wholesalers and will let you know once they provide. Let me know if the information on how to source/export their product, to the Middle East, will be enough, as I continue to search for wholesale suppliers. :)

Huh -- I didn't know PW did wholesale. They're just up the road from me a bit; I always figured it was just a distribution center for their retail stores.
