Helping you help your customers

As well as providing relevant, high quality and good value remedies, Care aims to support you in servicing your patients as efficiently as possible.


Discontinued Care Products

The Care range aims to provide you and your patients with products that meet everyday healthcare needs and is constantly being updated in order to do that.

As well as introducing innovations and making product changes that you request, we also react to MHRA regulatory changes. Where demand is diminishing, we have not been able to update some heritage formulas in line with MHRA requirements and have reluctantly had to discontinue some products.


The following Care products are in the process of being discontinued.
