Roopali Gupta, product director for topical first ald products and first aid kits, expects first aid treatment sales to be stimulated now that Band-Aid has combined its trusted brand heritage with proven formulas in antibiotic ointments (formerly the Mycitracin brand) and anti-itch products (formerly the Rhuli brand).
In exchange for Motrin and Mycitracin, Pharmacia & Upjohn acquired McNeil's Pediacare(R) (pediatric cough, cold, and allergy medication) and Nasalcrom(R) (nasal allergy product) brands, and J&J CPI's Micatin(R) (topical anti-fungal preparation) brand.
In return, P&U shifted Motrin IB, an analgesic, to McNeil and Mycitracin, a topical antibiotic, to J&J's consumer products sector.
