I'm not sure the Noxzema you get in Greece is even produced by the same company that produces Noxzema for the rest of Europe.  Procter & Gamble owned Noxzema worldwide until just a few years ago.  But it sold the worldwide rights to Noxzema to Alberto-Culver in 2008, except for the rights to produce and market Noxzema in Greece.  Those rights were bought by a local Greek firm, Sarantis S.A., in 2014.  Alberto-Culver was acquired by Unilever in 2010.

So I think there are two Noxzema's out there:  Greek Noxzema (owned by Sarantis) and everyone else's Noxzema (owned by Unilever).  That must be tricky within Europe.

I ordered a tube from Greece.  The shipping cost is an issue, but I want to try this cream.  Thanks for the information gentlemen.

Mine arrived from Greece today.  It took 12 days to get here.  I haven't used it yet, so all I can say is that it smells like Noxema.
