Today, we’re an international company with a UK team of around 200 employees and an expansive portfolio of brands and products. Our journey began in a small pharmacy near Hamburg’s famous St. Michael’s church, often referred to as “Michel”. This is where Paul C. Beiersdorf invented the coated plaster and established the high standards that have set us apart from our competition for over 130 years. In the decades that followed, we developed into a globally successful consumer goods company with one aim: to create brands and products that enrich lives.
