Over 70 years ago, B.F. Ascher & Company, Inc. began providing healthcare products for better living. Founder Bordner "Bo" Ascher started his company just outside of Kansas City with a focus on manufacturing prescription pharmaceuticals. By the 1970's, B.F. Ascher & Company decided to offer products directly to the consumer. Early successes in over-the-counter products included MOBISYL® pain relief cream. In the first decade of developing O-T-C's, an entire line of products joined the B.F. Ascher family including sinus, allergy, cough, and cold relief products still available today.
As a privately held company, the Aschers have grown with advances in medicine and changing consumer needs. In 1990, distribution reached a national level, new products appeared, and advanced versions of long-time favorites were introduced. Today the AYR® Saline family is one of the best selling brands of saline products available.
