Complementing the Novartis healthcare portfolio, Novartis OTC is answering a growing consumer demand for self-care products, helping to address the full range of healthcare needs worldwide.
Novartis OTC creates differentiated, benefit-focused products that deliver on unmet consumer needs. Listening to our consumers, we also strive to continuously improve our existing brands through innovations in product formulations and packaging.
An example is Voltaren Emulgel, Novartis OTC's nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used topically to relieve symptoms like joint pain from osteoarthritis in the knees, ankles, feet, elbows, wrists and hands.1
The original cap on the Voltaren tube was difficult for sufferers of hand and wrist pain to open. With these consumers in mind, Novartis OTC designed an easy-open, rotatable screw cap for this Voltaren product.
First launched in Germany, the custom-designed screw cap is now available for consumers in more than ten countries, including larger markets such as Brazil and Russia. This innovation helps to ensure that people around the world can experience the joy of movement.
