Marks/Labels
Yellow label with black text. Label contains Chinese characters that are literally translated to: "Watson's" and "home" and "made" and "top" and "up" and "Quinine" and "powder". When adjusted for English comprehension, product is " Watson's Quinine powder". Quinine is a treatment for malaria. It is also used to treat lupus and arthritis. Quinine was also frequently prescribed as an off-label treatment for leg cramps at night, but this has become less common due to a Food and Drug Administration warning that this practice is associated with life-threatening side effects. Brand name "Watsons" is for A.S. Watson Group, which started as the Canton Dispensary and Soda Water Establishment in 1828 as a small dispensary, with the mission to provide free medical services to the poor people of the Southern Chinese province of Guangdong (also known as Canton). It moved to Hong Kong and re-emerged as the Hong Kong Dispensary in 1843. The company began trading under the name A.S. Watson & Company in 1871. Now, the A.S. Watson Group (or A.S. Watson or ASW) with headquarters located in Hong Kong, is the world's largest health and beauty retail group, with over 13,900 stores in 24 markets worldwide serving over 28 million customers per week, and over 3 billion customers and members throughout.
