Chemical structure of clotrimazole

Science is in our DNA

Professor Karl Heinz Büchel reached the breakthrough of developing clotrimazole, an active anti-fungal ingredient. A few years later, Clotrimazole was registered in Germany and launched under the brand name Canesten. We were the first to craft the original clotrimazole product that is effective at treating fungal infections.
To date we've conducted numerous clinical studies and use a variety of methods to ensure our products are effective. Our story doesn't finish here, though.
