SINCE ITS HUMBLE BEGINNINGS IN 1935, when Dettol Antiseptic Liquid was used as a post-surgery antiseptic skin wash in hospitals, Dettol has evolved to become the trusted brand in germ protection around the home.

Since then Dettol’s germ protection heritage has expanded across a growing portfolio of antibacterial hand wash, household cleaning and hand sanitiser products to laundry sanitisers.

This year Dettol will continue to focus on the expansion of its range in areas where germ protection is important and relevant, such as in the laundry or protection from germs when you are out of the house.

Dettol has also made a sustainability pledge* which includes making 100% of our packaging recyclable or reusable and to include at least 25% recycled plastic content in our packaging by 2025 where safety and regulations allow.

So far it has made significant steps by launching its first biodegradable and compostable wipes^ in its household cleaning range.

Always read the label. Follow directions for use.
