THE DETTOL BRAND FIRST STARTED IN HOSPITALS more than 80 years ago, where Dettol Antiseptic Liquid was first used for the cleaning and disinfection of skin during surgical procedures. Since then Dettol has been a trusted name in germ protection. Dettol continually strives to understand consumers and develop better personal hygiene and cleaning products that will further safeguard their health and make a difference to their lives.

Making a difference is something Dettol takes seriously. For the past ten years, Dettol has been a partner of Plunket. With donations of over $1 million over this time, Dettol is helping the support service provider ensure that every child in the country gets the best start in life.

One thing Dettol never compromises on is quality, and this is a big reason why Dettol is trusted by New Zealand families to help protect themselves against germs – and why the company is consistently voted a Trusted Brand in the Reader’s Digest survey.

Always read the label. Use only as directed.
