Our sustainability care pledge

At Consumer Healthcare at Sanofi, we’ve always been about giving, answering a need. But our world is changing. And we need to do more. Health is no longer a set of symptoms to be treated in isolation – our health is inextricably linked to the world around us. 

The health of our planet affects us all. We see and feel its symptoms as if they were our own. In the water we drink, the air we breathe, the warmth of our sun, and the social injustices that shake us to our core. 

So, our approach to care must change. And evolve from simply serving, to now, working together. Helping people, help themselves… Where self-care is a shared responsibility – For ourselves. Our communities. And our planet.

Cough, Cold and Flu

Colds are one of the most common illnesses experienced by both adults and children. While cough is the most common symptom of a cold, people can experience up to five symptoms during the life cycle of a cold.

Our portfolio in cough and cold addresses the full range of symptoms so people can get back to their lives. Our brands are trusted across the world, and some have been on the market for over 50 years.


We recognize that allergies can be challenging and symptoms such as itchy eyes, sneezing and a runny nose can be a burden to getting on with everyday life. We understand allergy sufferers’ needs and have a number of innovative, effective products in our range to respond effectively to each person’s specific allergy needs.

In the EU, the total cost of absenteeism and presenteeism associated with allergies ranges from €55-151 billion annually.2

Digestive Wellness

The gut is often referred to as the body’s second brain. The digestive system provides energy and fuel for the whole body, so when someone suffers from gastro intestinal disorders, their life can literally be put on hold.

Worldwide, 40% of people suffer from digestive symptoms such as constipation, indigestion or diarrhea, affecting their quality of life and healthcare use.We offer a broad range of digestive solutions that work on relieving heartburn, improving liver performance and indigestion and managing diarrhea and constipation.

Physical and Mental Wellness

Across the world, 77% of people have used nutritionals in the last 12 months to maintain their general health, provide immune system support or to supplement in areas of vitamin deficiency.

We are committed to providing world-class products and services that help manage energy, stress, sleep and anxiety.

Pain care

Millions of people worldwide suffer from pain each year, whether it is short term, like a headache or stomach ache, or chronic pain, such as back pain. Low Back Pain (LBP) continues to be the leading reason for “Years Lost to Disability” (YLTD) in every region of the world,4 affecting around 1 in 10 people.

As a health journey partner, we aim to empower consumers to live healthier and fuller healthier lives through a full range of holistic pain management solutions.
