Local Antipruriginosum Calmitol

The first Siegfried products were drug extracts, tinctures, syrups, bandages, ointments, wine-based distillates, powder and tea mixtures, and numerous salts used in the pharmaceutical and technical industries. After 1923, the Swiss market recovered from the post-World War I downturn and Siegfried expanded pro-duction and launched export products into new markets. Both sales and compe-tition grew. The company needed so-mething new, a specialty!

Calmitol, launched in 1925 as a cure for pruritus symptoms (itching), was the first attempt – a success!

In the 1930s, Calmitol was expanded and also introduced into profitable foreign markets. It continued to be a popular OTC product. This success led to a line of pharmaceutical specialty products.

The Calmitol “cactus card” was created in 1966.
