Oral Care - A tradition in Dresden since 1907

High quality barrier coatings for the oral care industry


We take the daily use of our toothpaste for granted however toothpaste has only been available in tubes since the start of the 19th century. A significant historic development by pharmacist and chemist Dr. Ottomar Heinsius von Mayenburg (1865-1932) took place in the Laboratorium Leo, in the attic of the Löwen-Apotheke chemist on Dresden’s Altmarkt. This involved the launch of the Chlorodont toothpaste brand on the market which was filled in metal tubes for the first time. The Leo-Werke factory, which was established in 1917, led to the founding of the company Dental Kosmetik GmbH & Co. KG in 1990.

This development was the start of a significant historic tradition in the oral care industry in the Dresden region, and the area accounts for a large part of worldwide demand for tubes as a result. EPL Ltd. produces laminated and plastic tubes for the oral care industry.
