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.
