With its history stretching back over a thousand years, ancient Chinese medicine has left a clear mark on the world. A natural heritage to human kind, a core aspect and a contributor to the emergence of medicinal practices is pain relief through herbology. The legend of “Siang Pure” began during the 1930s when Sin Sae Tang or Master Tang, a doctor and an expert in traditional Chinese medicine became well-known for his application of Chinese herbs to treat illnesses in his community. A particular remedy stood out, the amber-colored medicated oil used for dizziness, muscle pains and aches and insect bites.
The Origin of “Siang Pure”
When Master Tang came to old age, he passed on herbal formulas to Mr.Boonjuea Eiampikul, Master Tang’s apprentice, innovator and entrepreneur. It was not until 1958 that Mr. Boonjeau was able to improve and develop his own medicated oil formula that was accepted and desired by not only people in Thailand but from across the globe. Mr. Boonjeau wedded his beloved wife Ms. Suchada and the two of them embarked on a journey that would become the start of “Siang Pure.” They founded a company called “Chakarin Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.”, the first manufacturer and distributor of Siang Pure.
Once Siang Pure became increasingly well-known and desired by Thais and foreigners alike, the headquarters moved from the bustling streets of China Town to its current location in Bangkok, Thailand where Bertram Chemical (1982) Co., Ltd. was founded. With increase in demand from across the globe and a need for higher production capacity, more than 1 billion baht was invested to build a new factory stretching on over 70 rai of land with global standards approved by internationally renowned GMP/PICs.
