Visit the space to learn more, ask questions and as a portal for global adventure ideas and information. They also host clinics, events and product knowledge sessions at the store.
Hydralyte first launched in Australia in 2001, and went global in 2010 with a wide range of products with the goal of providing a clinical hydration product people would want to use – not only when moderately dehydrated from the stomach flu, but during all of those other, frequent moments in our daily lives when hydration really matters. Working out in the heat, long-haul flights, over-indulging the night before… there are countless occasions when a real, clinical hydration solution makes all the difference.
