Founded more than 40 years ago, BIPA is the best-known drugstore retailer currently active in Austria. Some 3.3 million customers regularly shop at the about 600 stores. Employing more than 4,000 people, BIPA is part of the REWE group and offers an extensive network. (

In recent years, Austria has seen a rise in the number of patients with atopic derma­titis and other skin condi­tions. Studies found that about one in five children, as well as one-tenth of all adults, suffer from typical symptoms such as itching, burning sensa­tions, or inflamed skin. The skin flora of those affected generally shows a much higher share of patho­genic germs. The natural agent of “ibiotics med” stimu­lates the growth of healthy bacteria, regulating the balance of skin and skin flora and reducing in many cases the diseases’ symptoms.

BELANO medical AG holds a number of patents on micro­biotic (microbial) agents which are used in its own medical skincare products as well as in private label health care products of partners. In recent months, BELANO medical has already expanded its marketing channels for micro­biotic products and agents by entering colla­bo­ra­tions with Henkel AG and the Müller chain of retail stores.
