Our history

Originally incorporated in 2007, Medicareplus International was developed with the aim of providing affordable, patient-centric solutions to improve the quality of life of people with skin integrity challenges.  In April 2008, Medicareplus International become part of the renowned Chemilines group – established for more than 25 years and recognised as one of the UK’s leading pharmaceutical importers and distributors within the healthcare sector.  

Since then, we have gained recognition as one of the fastest growing healthcare organisations focused on skin protectants. This has been achieved while still retaining our family-owned approach to the workplace environment and relationships with both internal and external stakeholders. Our product portfolio has grown extensively to provide clinicians with a range of clinical and economic solutions for patients suffering from acute or chronic skin integrity challenges in wound care, continence care and stoma care. Our products can be safely used on compromised and normal skin, and help to prevent infection, advance their rate of healing and improve their quality of life. 
In addition to the Total Barrier Protection range of products, our portfolio includes standard dressing packs, advanced wound care dressings, absorbents, peak flow meters, gloves, surgical tape and other medical devices. 

In an industry with many other big names, we are proud to retain a deeply personal relationship with our clinical customers, economic buyers, and the countless patients who use our products every single day. 

Our commitment to skin integrity

At Medicareplus International, we are committed to leading the way in skin integrity through Total Barrier Protection™. Our products reflect this, providing a safe, effective barrier between skin and irritation from bodily fluids. 
Total Barrier Protection™ is a moisture damage treatment strategy that prevents, protects, repairs and restores skin integrity, improving patient care whilst driving efficiency savings. 

Our brands

Within Medicareplus International, we have varying brands, each specifically designed for skin protection in wound care, continence care and stoma care, helping patients access cost-effective, successful solutions that maximise their health and quality of life. Several of our flagship skin protectant brands, which are currently used as the gold-standard of care in UK healthcare settings, include:

Medi Derma-S Barrier Film and Cream
Medi Derma-S barrier cream provides intense moisturising while protecting skin from irritation from bodily fluids, adhesive products and friction, thereby helping in the management of MASD (Moisture-Associated Skin Damage).  

Further, having a stoma doesn’t have to affect quality of life. Created specifically with stoma care in mind, Medi Derma-S barrier film is a silicone-based, long-lasting solution that is effective as a primary barrier against irritation from bodily fluids, without affecting the adhesion of ostomy pouches. 
Medi Derma-PRO
Medi Derma-PRO advanced skin protectant ointment, and foam and spray incontinence cleanser provides a long-lasting barrier protection on moderate to severe skin damage associated with continence issues. It’s non-sting formulation enables painless application for all age groups.  
Lifteez Medical Adhesive Remover
Changing stoma dressings couldn’t be easier thanks to Lifteez medical adhesive remover. This non-sting formula is gentle on skin, but powerful at quickly breaking down the adhesive bonds that secure dressings in place. This makes dressing removal simple, while minimising the potential for skin stripping and discomfort.
