Consumer Healthcare

Our Consumer Healthcare business develops and markets a range of products in the areas of: Pain Relief, Respiratory, Oral Health, Nutrition/Gastro Intestinal and Skin Health.

We develop and market a range of over-the-counter consumer healthcare products across the key areas of oral health, pain relief, nutritional/gastrointestinal, respiratory and skin health.

Panadol, Sensodyne, Polident, Coldrex and Macleans are some of our best known consumer healthcare brands in New Zealand. We also offer preventative medicines such as Flixonase for hayfever, Zantac for the relief of heartburn and indigestion, and Zovirax for cold sores.

We continue to apply the same robust research and scientific processes we use to create medicines to develop our consumer healthcare products. Today, we use science to speed up the time it takes to create new products, and to make them more accessible to the people who need them.

After combining our consumer healthcare business with Novartis’s to create one of the world’s largest consumer healthcare companies in 2015, we occupy number one positions in specialist oral health and over-the-counter medicines across 36 markets, and hold leading positions in skin health and family nutrition.

Our research and development team is constantly seeking to innovate and improve on existing products to ensure Kiwis have what they need to do more, feel better and live longer.
