OUR MISSION

We aim to improve Quality of Life by reinforcing deficiencies in naturally occurring physiological mechanisms in order to promote human health, wellbeing and comfort in the way nature intended.

Taradon Personal Care, a subsidiary of the Belgian biochemical company Taradon Laboratory, develops and bring to market unique healthcare products which harness the scientific and technical expertise of Taradon Laboratory.

Taradon Laboratory specialises in researching and applying the health-promoting properties of naturally-derived milk and plant molecules which are biologically equivalent to those present in human secretion liquids.

The AnOxident mouthcare products support the microbial stability of the mouth, helping overcome and prevent mouth problems
linked to compromised or deficient saliva.
