SSL International plc was a British manufacturer of healthcare products.
Its best known brands were Durex and Scholl; other significant brands were Sauber and Mister Baby.
The company's name was an abbreviation of Seton Scholl London International, its predecessor businesses.
Since November 2010, SSL International has been a part of FMCG company Reckitt Benckiser.
Dr. Scholl's was founded in 1906 by Chicago-based podiatrist William M Scholl.
Opening its first shop in London in 1913, after the death of Dr Scholl it was listed publicly on the New York Stock Exchange in 1972, and became a member of the Fortune 500.
Bought by Schering-Plough in 1978, the company sold the global brand and non-North American operations to Basingstoke-based home appliance electrical manufacturer European Home Products in 1984.
After the merger was complete, EHP renamed itself Scholl plc.
