HOE Pharmaceuticals was founded in 1979. From our humble beginning, we have provided high quality products with affordable price. Our product range have expanded over the years through innovation. Combined with strong commitments to our customers, we set the standards that have ingrained in our culture and practices. We have been focusing on dermatological products since those early days. Now, we have transformed the company into a modern, dynamic force with an objective of becoming one of the leading suppliers of dermatological products in the world.
In order to facilitate this growth, we have invested significantly in the state of art manufacturing processes and our adherence to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) which is recognized by international bodies including Members of Pharmaceuticals Inspection Co-operation Scheme (PIC/S). Now, we export to more than 20 countries and have fulfilled the stringent requirements imposed from those countries on all imported pharmaceutical and cosmetic products.
