Credit line
The Rawleigh's company of health and medical products was formed in 1889, when William Thomas Rawleigh began his independent sales career in Illinois. He travelled door to door with his four types of "Good Health Products". His business expanded into home products such as this furniture polish, as well as speciality foods, flavourings and an expanded healthcare line. Today Rawleigh's products are still sold around the world, as well as in New Zealand, and continue to be sold through distributors rather than through shop fronts.
