We bring serious science to skin care, with rigorous testing to ensure that all our ingredients are safe and effective. Then we take it a step further, to make sure every skin health product we offer feels as good as it works. Through innovation, we’ve created over-the-counter brands that are family favourites and dermatologist-recommended. They treat cold sores, itchy skin, athlete’s foot and more.

Current Needs

in Skin Health


From birth through to old age, skin changes and adapts and is subject to numerous challenges. As such it requires the right maintenance to keep it healthy. Therefore we are looking for technologies at different life stages. And technologies that work naturally with skin to repair the barrier and makes skin less sensitive.


We are seeking collaborative development opportunities of novel technologies that are designed for sensitive skin. We would welcome new technologies that are designed for consumers with sensitive skin or collaborative relationships across academia, industry or SME that further enable the understanding of sensitive skin.

Lip Health Solutions

A cold sore outbreak causes small blisters or sores on or around the lips. With treatment cold sores typically heal within 2-3 weeks, but the herpes virus remains. This virus can then reactivating causing a reoccurrence of the sore. For consumer this can impact overall wellbeing and confidence.

As such, we would like to identify:

  • Faster, better solutions for cold sore management before, during and after the cold sore episode
  • Novel ways to mask the cold sore completely
  • Identify ways to enable consumers to treat the cold sore to prevent the blister phase
  • Clinically proven post-phase 2 technologies seeking partners for further development
  • Develop solutions for application compliance of the treatment, and enable better delivery of the active. This could be novel dispensing and application solutions (e.g. Packaging) and solutions that increase cues for compliance and dosing application
