Learn how Unilever's innovations build leading brands and develop our capacity to meet consumer needs for nutrition, hygiene and personal care.
Our brands have built health, hygiene and well-being into their identity since the launch of Lifebuoy soap, over 100 years ago and we are uniquely placed to help people take action to improve their health and well-being.
Products such as soap and toothpaste can help prevent disease and improve health and well-being, ultimately helping to save lives. But this relies on people changing their everyday habits.
We have identified water, sanitation and hygiene – or WASH for short – as one of the areas where we believe we can make a sizeable and scalable difference to health and hygiene practices. If we focus our efforts and partner closely with others, we can offer solutions at a broader scale.
When the society we serve enjoys better health, hygiene and well-being, our business also benefits.
Achieving improvements in health and hygiene relies on people changing their everyday habits.
