Lanes Health has announced the acquisition of two healthcare brands from Reckitt Benckiser for an undisclosed sum.

The owner of Olbas, Kalms, and Jakemanns will manage and distribute Earex and Derbac M from 9 January. Earex is used in the relief of aural pain caused by inflammation, and Derbac M is used to treat head lice and other infestations.

“This is a significant acquisition for us which will support our ambition to be one of the leading family owned consumer health businesses in the UK,” said Lanes Health sales and marketing director Dave Cole.
