Exporting consumer goods to Iran


I am looking to export consumer goods to Iran, or Iran via Dubai. These consumer goods include Toothpastes and denture guard products. I was wondering if anybody could provide me with insight into the best possible solution for this – I would be working with a distributor already well established in the country. Thank you for your responses!
