DARMSTADT, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--This summer, Merck’s Consumer Health division has marked 80 years since the launch of the world’s first commercial, powdered Vitamin C product Cebion®. Based on the substance discovery in 1932 through the later Nobel Prize winners Albert von Szent-Györgyi Nagyrapolt (Hungary) and Walter Norman Haworth (UK), Merck had initially started extracting ascorbic acid from diverse plants and flowers, before later on synthesizing the substance for mass production. The in-market launch in 1934 already saw a diversified portfolio with Cebion bulk, tablets and ampoules in different dosages.
