Formed in November 2000, Crown Laboratories, Inc. was the vision of Jeff Bedard, who combined the strengths of BLUE LIZARD® AUSTRALIAN SUNSCREEN and Del-Ray Laboratories to become a true player in contract manufacturing and consumer healthcare.
In 2001, Dr. Don Kilday brought to Crown Laboratories the assets of Med-Derm Pharmaceuticals and joined Crown Laboratories as President. Mr. Bedard added BLUE LIZARD® AUSTRALIAN SUNSCREEN to the product portfolio, and the first acquisition under the Crown Laboratories umbrella was Del-Ray Laboratories. This piece of the puzzle gave Crown Laboratories a respected line of ethical OTC and prescription products, as well as the talent of Greg Holmes, a widely respected chemist and product formulation expert.
In 2013, all divisions – including Del-Ray Dermatologicals and Med-Derm Pharmaceuticals – were consolidated under the Crown Laboratories name. Today, the company operates with three distinct areas of focus: Consumer Healthcare Products, Prescription Products, and Contract Development and Manufacturing Services.
