FOREWORD FROM GALDERMA CEO
OUR UNIQUE INTEGRATED DERMATOLOGY STRATEGY
Our unique Integrated Dermatology Strategy is a key differentiator for Galderma by creating greater consumer, patient and healthcare professional engagement, generating better customer insights and delivering continuous innovation.
This strategy is driving a competitive advantage and fueling strong growth for Galderma by activating considerable global synergies in our commercial execution, Research & Development (R&D) platform and other functions.
WE DEMONSTRATED A SUSTAINED GROWTH MOMENTUM IN 2022
We delivered a very strong commercial and financial performance in 2022, despite a challenging external environment. Overall, we achieved double-digit sales growth as well as double-digit Core EBITDA growth.
Across our businesses, we had a particularly strong global performance in Injectable Aesthetics and Dermatological Skincare – off-setting the anticipated decline in Therapeutic Dermatology due to loss of exclusivity for two key brands in the U.S., as well as increased competition. Within Injectable Aesthetics, we outperformed the market with double-digit growth and market share gains across the portfolio. We also achieved strong double-digit growth in our Dermatological Skincare business, which significantly out-paced the overall market growth. In Therapeutic Dermatology, we made clear progress in the clinical development and pre-commercial support for our key biologic asset nemolizumab.
COMMITTED TO GROWTH THROUGH STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMEENT
In 2022, we significantly increased our scientific engagement and consumer outreach. Through our Galderma Aesthetics Injectors Network (GAIN) program, we directly reached more than 100,000 aesthetics professionals around the world. We increased the visibility of our scientific research as Galderma data featured prominently at numerous key international medical congresses.
We launched a new global consumer campaign in support of the 75th anniversary of Cetaphil, and we reached millions of people via a social media campaign in support of Sensitive Skin Awareness month.
PUTTING CUSTOMERS' NEEDS FIRST
We have fundamentally re-shaped the way we engage with our key audiences. We place them at the center of virtually everything we do. Through our salesforce, we implement a high-touch and customer-centric engagement model. Using various digital engagement tools, we listen to our customers’ needs and continuously improve our engagement model accordingly. Finally, we provide our customers with critical, science-backed information about our products and service offerings. We believe this allows our customers to place trust in our brands, which supports our future growth.
SHAPING THE FUTURE OF DERMATOLOGY
Our commitment to advancing dermatology for every skin story is grounded in over 40 years of science-led investment and innovation. Since we became a standalone company in 2019, we have significantly increased our investment in research and development to develop key clinical assets. Our late-stage pipeline assets include nemolizumab, our biologic asset with significant commercial potential, and RelabotulinumtoxinA (QM-1114), our unique liquid, ready-to-use neuromodulator developed with a proprietary strain of botulinum toxin A. Both these assets represent potentially transformative products in their respective categories. We also continue to promote scientific innovation for products within our existing portfolio.
A first-in-class investigational monoclonal antibody with the potential to be a key therapeutic solution for patients suffering from moderate to severe prurigo prurigo nodularis.
The first ready-to-use liquid form of botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) approved for aesthetic use in Europe.
A range of innovative, clinically tested skincare products that correct, protect and maintain healthy skin for a lifetime. They are the latest additions to our synergistic portfolio of award-winning, physician-dispensed brands.

Our Alby-sur-Chéran, France site serves all markets except the U.S. with topicals – both over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription medicine – and supplies brands such as Differin, Aklief and Epiduo. Our largest production site, at Baie-D’Urfé, Canada, is focused on the global supply of Cetaphil, with additional production of OTC and prescription medicine for the U.S. market. The Latin American market is predominantly served by our site in Hortolândia, Brazil.
