History

Prestige Brands Holdings, Inc., was originally formed in 1996, as a joint venture of Medtech Labs and The Shansby Group, to acquire over-the-counter drug brands from American Home Products.

Prestige Brands International was organized in 1999 to acquire and revitalize leading, neglected but healthy brands that were discontinued by major consumer products companies that originally made them.

In 2009, Prestige sold its Denorex and Prell brands of shampoo.

It had recently acquired Blacksmith Brands.
