BioCeuticals, a part of the Blackmores family
The BioCeuticals practitioner-only brand is proudly owned by Australia’s largest healthcare company, Blackmores Limited.
On 2 July 2012, Blackmores Limited announced its acquisition of the BioCeuticals brand, which was originally founded by the Hall family in 1993. The BioCeuticals range, brand and strategy are complementary to those of Blackmores. There is strong philosophical alignment between both companies.
Blackmores is committed to preserving the practitioner-only range of nutritional and therpeutic medicine, operating the company as a stand-alone business.

BioCeuticals innovative products have a respected point of difference, accredited to four key elements:

Our strong network of relationships within the Australian allied healthcare industry ensures that our work is selected for study by the nation’s most respected researchers.
Some of our research projects include:

The goals of BioCeuticals are in accord with the goals of ARONAH (Australian Register of Naturopaths and Herbalists) – to uphold the professionalism and integrity of the CAM industry. BioCeuticals supports ARONAH and its quest to standardise the naturopathy industry from education to practice, achieving greater safety for consumers and further legitimacy among allied health professionals.
Along with our enthusiasm for bringing healthy living to the forefront of our communities, social responsibility is close to our heart.

BioCeuticals staff also take the initiative to participate in a number of charity events, while our company website proudly supports various notfor- profit community health causes.
Our company is dedicated to finding solutions, while our team of researchers, and practitioners are passionate about supporting causes that improve the health and wellbeing of Australians.
