Lion takes pride in its top ranking among Japanese toothpaste and toothbrush manufacturers. Brands include Clinica, Dentor, and Dent. Besides oral care products, the company makes and sells laundry detergent, bleach, cleaners, shampoo, deodorant, and beauty products in several Asian countries. Consumer products account for nearly 75% of sales, but Lion also operates food, chemical, and pharmaceutical divisions. The company has strengthened its competitiveness by introducing new products, such as a teeth-whitening toothpaste, medicated cleansing pads, and a men's deodorant. Its Lion Trading arm makes pet supplies. Lion, which was established in 1891, is looking beyond Japan for growth.
