Celebrating 114 years (1903 – 2017)
The company history can be traced back through a number of owners to the original Papier Poudré Limited in October 1898, who had offices in London, Paris and New York. There was a ‘Papier Poudré Company’ operating in London as early as 1893. The owners of ‘Company’ were the founding Directors of ‘Limited’.
The current owners have been involved with the business since 2010 and in that time have been working hard to re-establish the brand. This includes streamlining the supply chain and introducing new product lines that use the same base paper.
Going forward we intend building upon the success we have had over the last couple of years and hope to introduce further products under the 'Papier Poudré' and 'Lehcaresor' brands, both of which are registered trademarks, and have been since 1903.
The company has come full circle since the early days with the original name now in use as well as the original product. Over 100 years of history and still going strong!
The customer base varies from loyal UK users, who have been using the product for many years and who constantly remind the company of its virtues and benefits, to large Pharmacies who sell a version of the product as their own brand. A visit to our overseas stockist’s page will show you the details of many distributors we have throughout the world.
