Were you looking for us?
Because we’ve changed our name, our address and our look.


Times change, markets change, so we have, too.


That’s why, from now on, we’ll be under a new name at a new address (along with a bright new identity and a lovely new logo). But what hasn’t changed is the quality, range and value of our care products and resources.


We think you’ll love what we’ve done with the new place.
