Borden Company (Pte) Ltd, a Singapore home grown pharmaceutical manufacturing company since 1960, produces the well-known Eagle Brand Medicated Oil, which has become synonymously known as the “Green Oil”. Eagle Brand medicated oil was formulated in 1935 by a German chemist, Wilhelm Hauffman, for J Lea & Co, a trading house owned by the late Tan Jim Lay, a direct descendant of the patriarch Tan Quee Lan. He was a well-known Chinese merchant and philanthropist in Singapore during the early 1900’s. The Eagle Brand medicated oil under J Lea Co flourished and grew very significantly and dominated the local market for medicated oil in the post war period.
Currently, the factory produces as many as 6 million bottles annually of Eagle Brand Medicated Oil. Although the medicated oil remains as the core product, dedicated research and development have created an extended range of pharmaceutical products, such as the muscular balm, green balm, Yellow Balm, Muscle rub, Capsicum plaster, Eucalyptus disinfectant spray, inhaler, Eucalyptus Oil, Eucalyptus Oil for babies and Alcohol Swipes.
