Bayer introduces reformulated aspirin
MORRISTOWN, N.J. — Bayer has launched a reformulated aspirin called Bayer Advanced Aspirin that works in less than half the time of the company’s regular aspirin, according to published reports.
According to yet-to-be-published research, the new Bayer Advanced Aspirin can begin providing meaningful pain relief in as little as 16 minutes, compared with an average 100 minutes for the company’s mainstay brand.
The new aspirin will be positioned as a premium internal analgesic and will be targeted toward younger customers in an effort to grow market share as the company’s Bayer Aspirin (81-mg aspirin) brand is better known as a preventive for heart attack.
OAK BROOK, Ill. — Chapped and cracked lips have long been a side effect associated with the common cold, especially for those congested sufferers who have to breathe strictly through their mouths. Now Blistex is introducing Blistex Cold & Allergy Lip Soother, a lip balm that incorporates an external analgesic (pramoxine HCl 1%) to help relieve the pain that comes with those cracked lips. That incremental opportunity should be complementary to the category — lip remedy sales totaled $537 million for the 52 weeks ended April 16 across food, drug and mass (including Walmart), up 0.3%, according to Nielsen Group data.
