SCA Enters Into Agreement With BioGaia

Partnership will produce new health-oriented products.

SCA has entered into a long-term cooperation agreement with BioGaia to develop new health-oriented products. The objective is to combine BioGaia’s expertise in the field of probiotic bacteria and applications technologies with SCA’s distribution network and know-how in the area of hygiene products.

“Probiotic bacteria are microorganisms that confer various types of health benefits. SCA is already active in this area and holds a number of interesting patents. By applying BioGaia’s work methods, we hope to transform these concepts into commercially viable products,” said Ingela Torstensson, head of global research for SCA’s hygiene products.

One example of a research area is the potential of probiotic bacteria to prevent urinary tract infections, which is very common among women suffering from incontinence. The agreement enables the companies to share know-how in related areas, but from completely different perspectives.

SCA is one of the largest companies in personal care products, with the Libresse and Tena brands.
