Successful ... for 25 years

Since his youth it was the dream of company founder Oliver Redschlag to become an entrepreneur. With his products, he wanted to offer solutions that would inspire. As a demanding person, he set the bar very high right from the start. One of the reasons, why consistently in Germany one produces.

Innumerable success stories pave the 25th anniversary of the firm history. For example, JOYDIVISION has made a name for itself with the development of the world's first 100% natural and only CO2-free lubricant BIOglide and Europe's most popular lubricant brand AQUAglide. Soft tampons have also become the benchmark for threadless tampons and the best-selling product of their kind worldwide. Oliver Redschlag still has many goals and dreams today, so consumers can look forward to products that enrich their lives in the future as well.
