About Essity/ Former SCA Hygiene Products

Dedicated to improving well-being

Essity's heritage goes back to 1929. Our hygiene expertise runs deep in our business, beginning with the acquisition of the Swedish company Mölnlycke in 1975.

We are dedicated to improving well-being through leading hygiene and health solutions.

Our operations are based on a sustainable business model that contributes to a circular society focused on value creation for people and nature.

We have the knowledge, experience, products and solutions, as well as the commitment to contribute to improving hygiene standards worldwide. We educate children about the importance of washing their hands, girls about menstruation and puberty, nurses and caregivers about incontinence care. We support women to be able to fully participate in society; socially, educationally and professionally.

Better hygiene and health are necessities for better lives and our products and solutions play an essential role in improving well-being for everybody, everywhere
