Melisana AG, founded in Basel in 1953, can celebrate its 70th anniversary this year. Not only well-known brand products contribute to the success of the trading company, but also a special corporate culture.

A 70-year company anniversary is a confirmation of the achievement of Melisana AG, its employees, customers and partner companies, because it marks a long and eventful period with many high points, but also with one or two challenges.

You have all contributed, and this is the key to our success, that we can celebrate our 70th company anniversary today.

In addition, a heartfelt thank you for many years of trusting and cooperative partnership.


Working for your health for over 70 years

Melisana AG, based at the heart of Zurich, Switzerland, was originally founded in Basel in 1953, and is a member of the Klosterfrau Healthcare Group. Melisana AG is specialized in the marketing of over-the-counter remedies, dietary supplement and cosmetic products for self-medication.

Creating health and well-being for people is, and will always be, the challenging aim of the business activities of Melisana AG. Melisana products guarantee the highest quality for the benefit of the users. In addition to the best-known brands of Alca-C, FEMANNOSE® N, Dermophil, OYONO and DUL-X®, it also markets a wide range of other proven products.

The strong network of retail partners of Melisana AG comprises pharmacies, drug stores, doctors and hospitals.

FEMANNOSE® N with d-mannose is an entirely new approach to the treatment of cystitis – for acute treatment and, in a low dosage, for prevention. In addition to the tremendous advantage that no resistances develop, the rapid onset of action and excellent tolerance both speak in favour of FEMANNOSE® N.
