The LEO Foundation

LEO Pharma is owned by the LEO Foundation, an independent organisation which represents everything that LEO Pharma is passionate about: Innovation, people-focus and integrity. 

The LEO Foundation aims to ensure the sustainability and continued development of LEO Pharma as an independent, competitive and research-based healthcare organisation. As part of its mission, the LEO Foundation supports research within the fields of medicine, chemistry and pharmacy. The LEO Foundation particularly supports international dermatological research projects and activities that address issues in disease understanding; disease treatment; awareness and patient well-being. The LEO Foundation’s mission statement also means that our patient-focused ethos of Helping SARAH is at the heart of all of LEO Pharma UK/IE’s activities.

The LEO Foundation’s ethical and research-based ideology is shared across all levels of LEO Pharma’s 5,000-strong team, including LEO Pharma UK/IE. Being owned by a foundation means that LEO Pharma is not accountable to stakeholders and therefore does not deviate away from our pledge to help people live healthier lives. Additionally, without any external management, key decisions can be made at LEO Pharma efficiently and profits reinvested into research and development, allowing us to tackle unmet medical needs around the world quickly and effectively. The LEO Foundation also brings consistency to the group, giving us long-term stability so that we can continue to develop pioneering products which help change and inspire the medical world.
