The British Dispensary (L.P.) Co., Ltd. was established in 1892 by Dr. Thomas Heyward Hays. In the beginning, the British partners of the pharmacy introduced pharmaceutical technology from the United Kingdom and manufactured the first batch of medicinal treatment products in Thailand. The St. Luke’s with Snake Device represents a mark for personal hygiene care for people at the time.
By 1928, Dr. Luan Vongvanij had inherited the business and the Snake Brand series was the top selling personal health care product. The award of quality manufacturer from the Thai government and the Department of Health is proof of its leading market position and importance in the industry.
