Elastoplast – Experience and competence

Beiersdorf HQ in Hamburg - home of Elastoplast
Where our ideas come from: Our research and development centre - also based in Hamburg
We are the healthcare brand of Beiersdorf, one of the world's leading skincare companies, located in Hamburg, Germany. Elastoplast has come a long way since the first Elastoplast plaster, which we developed in 1896 when Smith & Nephew (founded in 1856) expanded their business to include wound dressing. The start of an ongoing success story, driven by progress, quality and innovation.

We‘ve been healing wounds  and taking care of skin for more than a century

For more than 125 years, Beiersdorf has been gaining experience and competence in wound care – more recently in the field of activity support and the treatment of muscular pain – striving always to improve wound healing and care for your skin.

Quality as benchmark

Founded in 1896, Elastoplast is a global brand whose products are sold in six countries across the world: Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom. Since its founding, Elastoplast products have been renowned internationally for their quality. 

More than 200 tried and tested products and innovations are sold in countries from Germany to Chile, the United Kingdom to Australia, under the brand names Hansaplast, Elastoplast and Curitas. Apart from plasters and wound dressings, our product range includes well-tried as well as original products that offer relief from foot problems, sport injuries, pains and strains.
