Angelini invests in research and development of its own molecules and synthetic pharmaceutical substances
Thanks to significant investments, production begins of the first original molecules from Angelini’s pharmaceutical research: oxolamine (anti-cough), benzidamine (anti-inflammatory), trazodone (antidepressant) and dapiprazole (anti-glaucoma).
Lines, the baby boom hero
In the heart of the baby boom, Angelini, through Fater, revolutionises our country’s health and hygiene market, introducing Lines disposable nappies to the market.
The name Lines is chosen because it recalls linen, used until then to make cloth nappies.
In this way Fater creates the nappy market for children: goodbye to uncomfortable cloth nappies, thanks to new “disposable” Lines nappies.
Lines changes the habits of Italian women
Thanks to Fater, Angelini starts producing feminine absorbent hygiene products, still under the Lines brand, forever changing the habits of Italian women.
