Reckitt & Benckiser

For such a fast-paced, entrepreneurial business some are surprised to learn the company’s history spans 150 years of innovation for consumers across the world. With a German and British heritage, RB’s commitment to producing top quality, trusted medicines, medical devices, hygiene and other home products has shaped its history of strong financial performance coupled with social responsibility. Its brands are too numerous to list here, and ShopLadder offers a few of its most famous names, Airwick and Lysol.

Since 1889, Lysol has been helping families do more for health. Since introducing their first disinfectant to help end a cholera epidemic, R&B has steadily expanded and improved their products to meet the world’s ever-changing needs. In 1918, Lysol was first touted as an effective means of fighting the flu virus. In 1930, the Lysol Brand Disinfectant Liquid was introduced to drug stores and hospitals. Today, Lysol’s cleansers, disinfectants, and hand soaps are widely used in homes, schools, and businesses around the world.

As part of their Mission for Health, Reckitt & Benckiser has partnered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Education Association (NEA), and more. Lysol is also active in supporting disaster relief efforts, both nationally and globally, and its potential role in the Ebola epidemic is being evaluated as we go to press.
