About Galderma, a Dermatology Company

Galderma was founded with the goal of establishing a pharmaceutical company exclusively focused on dermatology.  UK operations were established in 1997 and the company has now grown extensively with operations centered around prescription medicines, self medication products and aesthetic & corrective solutions.  Our goal is to become leaders in these fields by supporting the needs of both patient and healthcare professionals.

For over 30 years, all our resources have been channeled in a single direction: to provide innovative medical dermatological solutions that meet the needs of patients and physicians with a particular focus on acne, rosacea, psoriasis and other steroid-responsive dermatoses, onychomycosis (fungal nail infections), skin cancer and medical aesthetic and corrective solutions for skin senescence (skin ageing). The skin conditions we treat can have strong psychological and social implications in the everyday lives of our patients. By treating these conditions, we help people preserve, restore and maintain healthy skin and improve their quality of life.

Today, Galderma is a global dermatology company committed to delivering innovative medical solutions to meet the needs of people throughout their lifetime while serving healthcare professionals around the world. The company has 34 wholly-owned affiliates (including UK offices) and a worldwide network of distributors, more than 5,500 employees and an extensive product portfolio available in 80 countries.

We invest each year to discover and develop new dermatology solutions and products and access innovative technologies, the dermatology company is one of the world’s leading investors in dermatology R&D. Five state-of-the-art R&D centers and six manufacturing sites are dedicated to providing a wide range of innovative medical solutions which meet the highest standards of safety and efficacy.
