Improving health for people and planet

Our mission is to improve total health for all—for individuals at every age and stage of life, for communities, and for our planet. We’ve set ambitious goals and are putting our money where our mouth is—investing $800 million through 2030 to advance human health while also protecting our environment. We’re tackling preventable diseases through education and partnerships, starting with smoking cessation and preventable skin cancers. We're improving product transparency, beginning with ingredients, so our consumers have the information they need when choosing health products. ​And, we're reducing our impact on the natural environment by reducing the amount of plastic we use, using more recycled materials, making our packaging easier to recycle or reuse, and powering more of our operations with renewable energy.

When you choose our brands, you choose a healthier today and a healthier tomorrow.

It starts with product innovation

Creating products that have the power to change the world—while protecting the planet—takes endless product innovation. From product design and raw material sourcing to manufacturing and packaging recyclability, if it doesn’t meet our exacting standards across the product lifecycle, we refine until we have it right.

Protecting aquatic life

Healthy water is essential—for human life, fish life, plant life. That’s why we worked with independent environmental experts to develop our Global Aquatic Ingredient Assessment™ (GAIA). This patented process helps us understand potential interactions between our ingredients, aquatic ecosystems and the communities around them. To date, we have assessed over 1,000 ingredients—and counting.




To thrive, people need healthy places, to live, work and play. We are leveraging our science, scale and reach to improve the health of both people and the planet. To achieve this, we are aggressively tackling sustainability at all levels of our Consumer Health business from how we operate our plants to how we design our products. Our 19,000 employees are the powerful force delivering this change; they are experimenting, they are energized and they are making a real difference to our business and the world we share.
