Consumer Health Audited


Consumer Health within Lonza’s Specialty Ingredients segment is focused on becoming the leading partner for the fast-moving consumer goods industry by supporting health, wellness and beauty through science and technology. Lonza’s Consumer Health business includes nutrition and dietary supplement ingredients and delivery systems, hygiene and preservation products, and personal-care offerings. With the addition of Capsugel, Lonza is now an industry leader in nutritional capsules, innovative formulations and finished dosage forms.

Together the teams in Consumer Health are capitalizing on people’s desire for nutritious food and dietary supplementation, for protection from dangerous viruses and other pathogens, and for the ability to look and feel their best. While we help to protect the health and well-being of people and companion animals around the world through proprietary ingredients and vitamin and supplement delivery, we also offer innovative hair- and skin-care formulations and ingredients for the personal-care market.

Our market-oriented, collaborative approach in combination with world-class quality allows us to deliver the solutions our customers need and is further strengthened by Lonza’s regulatory expertise. This advantage means that our customers have the regulatory support to obtain registration approvals required by local governmental agencies and the products backed by science in order to make marketable claims that help deliver meaningful differentiation.

We enable our customers to improve the lives of their consumers by ensuring healthier environments, delivering more nutritional foodstuffs, improving the delivery of vitamins and supplements, and offering more-advanced hair-, scalp- and skin-care products through the Consumer Health businesses.

In brief, Lonza’s Nutrition business supplies branded health ingredients that are supported by scientific research, regulatory compliance and market insights. Clear benefits and a broad array of product applications make our products attractive for the dietary supplement, food and beverage, nutrition and pharmaceutical industries. Lonza offers formulation know-how and delivery solutions, strong service capabilities and global regulatory expertise to help our customers quickly deliver innovative and differentiated nutritional products to market.

We apply consumer market insights and our extensive experience in pharmaceutical-delivery science to help our customers improve bioavailability, targeted delivery, swallowability, odor masking and taste of their nutritionals. Our technology enables us to develop unique combination products and visually appealing dosage forms that meet the expectations of today’s health-conscious consumers.
