Incorporated in 1965, Mauritius Cosmetics Limited (MCL) started with the production of toothpaste “Blendax” under license of Blendax Werke Germany (later acquired by Procter and Gamble USA). Since then, MCL has kept on expanding its production capabilities with the introduction to new equipments and manufacturing methods. Using its latest equipments and skilled technical staff, MCL successfully made Blendax the best selling toothpaste brand in the country. In 2015, MCL stopped the production of Blendax toothpaste under the P&G license and launched its new toothpaste brand, Dentamax. As a result of its quality and reliability through 50 years of experience, it did not take long for the new brand, Dentamax to acquire a leading market share in Mauritius. Besides the production of toothpaste, the company is also in the manufacture of several other products.
MCL manufactures Kamill cosmetic products under license of Burnus GMBH (Germany) and furniture care products of Poliboy Werke (Germany). The company also has licensee partnership with Beauté Diffusion (Paris) for perfumes such as Eau De Colognes and Eau de Toilettes. MCL has further expanded its manufacturing activities into soap products and natural insects’ repellent products. MCL has also been approved as an official supplier of GM products (France), which manufactures and distributes exclusive brands such as Yves Rocher, Blaise Mautin, Azzaro, Clarins etc. to hotels.
