Established in 1895 by the Lever Brothers, Lifebuoy has become a jewel in Unilever’s crown and a personal care brand trusted by families all over the world.

Our Vision

Lifebuoy’s social mission is simple: To educate people about the importance of handwashing for a healthier life and improved living standards. Proper handwashing techniques using soap, can reduce the incidence of diarrhoea and respiratory diseases in children by 48%* by preventing the spread of germs. Lifebuoy has been proven to reduce cases of sickness.*

Lifebuoy’s goal is to reach 1 billion people by 2020

In 2015 Lifebuoy was the first brand to be awarded campaign accreditation from the Royal Society for Public Health, in recognition of the efficacy of Lifebuoy’s product and behavioural change programme as a disease-prevention measure.

Globally, Lifebuoy’s ‘School of Five’ programme teaches school-children the healthy habit of handwashing with soap. Lifebuoy has reached 337 million people with handwashing and hygiene messages since the program’s inception.
