Aiming to become the market leader in the daily commodity
Unicharm Corporation wishes to provide people of all ages, from baby to the elderly, with products to gently support their minds and bodies to free them from burdens and allow them to fulfill their dreams. Including this desire in our corporate philosophy "NOLA & DOLA" (Necessities of Life with Activities & Dreams of Life with Activities), we offer baby and child care products centering on disposable diapers, feminine sanitary goods such as napkins and tampons, urinary care products for senior citizens, cleaning products such as cleaning sheets, wet tissues, health care products such as three-dimensional face masks and pet care products.
Our environment changes with the times, and customer needs are becoming increasingly sophisticated and diversified. Quick to capture these needs, we have developed new products ahead of the market, utilizing nonwoven fabric and absorbent material processing and molding techniques that we have developed over the years since our foundation. We take pride in offering unprecedented value to customers through our products and contributing to changes in their lifestyles. We will continue to adhere to our principle of putting the top priority on manufacturing high-quality daily commodity products so we can continue to deliver high value-added products to customers.
We strive not only to assist customers through our business operations, but also to increase our corporate value by promoting proper corporate management that offers value to all our stakeholders including shareholders, business partners, associates and the general public.

Unicharm Australasia - Message from CEO
Unicharm Australasia (“UcA”) was formed in 2008 after the acquisition of Australian Pacific Paper Products. Unicharm’s international focus on innovation, together with an on-going drive to provide the best for our customers, has given UcA the opportunity to bring to market a range of high quality products across the Babycare, Feminine Care and Health Care categories.
In Australia and New Zealand, we supply BabyLove disposable nappies through major grocery and pharmacy channels. From newborn babies to active toddlers as well as children who are at the toilet training stage, BabyLove provides an extensive range of high quality products to suit the different developmental requirements of growing children.
UcA recently launched our new Feminine Hygiene product “SOFY BeFresh”. With a patented Australian First* Clean Barrier TechnologyTM the SOFY BeFresh range dissolves liquid away from the surface, helping women feel fresh and clean. (*Patent No. 2012233342)
