Ego Maintains its Place on The Top 500 Companies List

Ego Pharmaceuticals has once again been named on the Top 500 Private Companies list, released last week by the Australian Financial Review. In a volatile environment, impacted significantly by the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent restrictions, Ego is proud to have retained its place on the list at number 309.

The list, published annually, considers company revenue over the latest 12-month accounting period as well as the number of staff employed.

Ego Pharmaceuticals was founded in Melbourne by husband and wife Gerald and Rae Oppenheim in 1953, and now employs over 600 staff across 15 nations.

The organisation remains Australian family owned and operated, with all products still being manufactured in Victoria.

Ego is committed to investing in the future growth of high-technology manufacturing with the benefit of providing good jobs and strong economic growth for Australia and in all nations in which the company operates.

Ego is in the final stages of a $25 million dollar ‘Green Core’ upgrade project at its manufacturing facility in Braeside, which is due for completion in June 2022. This investment will improve Ego’s operating capacity to enable future projects and expansion, and will also reduce the company’s environmental impact.

The QV Baby range has once again been chosen by consumers as having some of the top baby skincare products in Australia, with the release of the Bounty Baby Award winners this week.

QV Baby products were recognised in the following 4 categories:

  • Best Baby Moisturiser (QV Baby Moisturising Cream) – Gold
  • Best Baby Shampoo (QV Baby 2 in 1 Shampoo & Conditioner) – Gold
  • Best Baby Wash (QV Baby Gentle Wash) – Silver
  • Best Barrier Cream (QV Baby Barrier Cream) – Silver

The Bounty Baby Awards are held annually, and are voted on by both the public and a selected voting panel. This year, the awards received a huge 40 000 votes from the public and the voting panel consisted of a midwife, the Bounty editor, influencer Jessica Beaton from One Handed Cooks, and 2 real life mums.

Australian made, QV Baby is a dermatologically tested range of gentle hydrating cleansers, moisturisers and a barrier cream, specially developed for sensitive skin. Recommended by paediatricians, every QV Baby product is free from colour, fragrance and other common irritants, to work in harmony with baby’s delicate skin.
