Healthtech Laboratories was established in 1990 by the chemist Mr William Wyndham-Quin. William developed a range of stock remedies, feed supplements and accessories for horses. These developments addressed a need in the South African market for quality products produced at affordable prices and formed the cornerstone for the birth of a very successful company. Ice Man, a herbal based gel that contains the unique extract H8000, was born and remains the best selling animal health product in its category in South Africa.
In 1998, Healthtech Laboratories widened its focus to the consumer healthcare market with the launch of its blockbuster, Herbal Ice Cooling Gel. This new natural approach to pain relief proved to be very popular and soon the product was sold in Canada and the United Kingdom. Since then the company has expanded its product offering to various countries in the Middle East.
The Healthtech range has since been increased and offers quality products for birds, companion animals, horses, wildlife and cattle.
