Lifebuoy is the world’s number one selling antibacterial soap, sold in nearly 60 countries. Through the Lifebuoy brand, we aim to make a difference by creating quality, affordable products and promoting healthy hygiene habits.
The desire to be clean, active and healthy is intrinsic to everyone – irrespective of age or economic status. An inspiring vision for more hygienic, healthier and ultimately more vital communities is the driving force behind the Lifebuoy brand. To realize this vision, we look to consistently innovate and provide accessible Lifebuoy products to a wide variety of consumers.
Since the launch of the Lifebuoy brand in 1894, we have supported people in their quest for better personal hygiene. The classic red bar of soap and its distinctive medicated carbolic scent was synonymous with cleanliness throughout the twentieth century. Today, the brand is so much more. With its many soap variants across the Caribbean, Lifebuoy products give protection from 10 infection-causing germs to ensure daily hygiene and freshness for the entire family.
