Innovate

These days every company claims to innovate. It’s so common that the word has become almost invisible. We’re different. We walk the walk.

Every year we commit 30% of our research staff and facilities to purely speculative development. Why would we invest so much in projects without a guaranteed payoff? So that we stay on the cutting edge of Consumer Healthcare technologies, and are able to ensure that you, our Brand Partner, are in a perfect position to offer your customers differentiated products that they will love. For us, that 30% is a solid investment, and it’s been a big part of our continued growth and success.

Sharing Risk

We say “Brand Partner” rather than “customer” because that’s how we see you. Again, that’s more than just words — in many cases, we commit to sharing some of the risk of bringing your new product to market. And because it doesn’t make sense to compete with your partners, we don’t own any of our own brands and we never market directly to any retail chains. It’s a win-win that makes perfect sense, because the more successful you are, the more successful we are.

The Earlier The Better

No matter where you are in your product’s evolution, we’d love to work with you. But it’s especially exciting when we get to meet you at the beginning of your journey. Brainstorming concepts, formulations and delivery systems to create a game-changing end product is what we do best. Put our deep experience and consumer knowledge to work for you.

Solving The Ultimate Challenge

Through our company-wide culture of innovation, we have helped our partners bring OTC, Medical Device and Branded Rx products directly to market — products that increase patient adherence, helping to improve a serious issue that costs our healthcare system an estimated $100-$289 billion a year1.
