Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, is proud to offer Chattem’s branded over-the-counter products and functional toiletries, some examples being Icy Hot ® and Gold Bond ®. Founded in 1879 as the Chattanooga Medicine Company in downtown Chattanooga by Zeboim Cartter Patten, their first two products were Black Draught®, a senna based laxative used by the British Navy, and Wine of Cardui, a tonic for women based on the sedative and antispasmodic properties of Cnicus benedictus.
As the years progressed, so did the company, pioneering direct-marketing and advertising techniques at the turn of the century, such as using the sides of barns along the road or at busy intersections to paint huge “Black Draught” or “Wine of Cardui” messages. Years later, after becoming a charter member of the United States Chamber of Commerce during the Great Depression of the 1930’s, Chattem became the nation’s first to offer employee pensions and life insurance programs. During this time Chattem established a nationally recognized research program and introduced diversification by entering into the fine chemical and prescription drug business.
During WWII, Chattem became one of the leading producers of food and medicine for the U.S. Army and after the war the company name was changed to its present name and expanded by creating two divisions, Chattem Chemicals and Chattem Consumer Products. Chattem is now an international company and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Sanofi-Aventis Group. Chattem manages the Allegra® brand, and is the platform for Sanofi-Aventis over-the-counter and consumer health products in the United States. “We are proud to carry the Chattem brands of consumer health products,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “Being able to offer these well-known brands of health products in bulk-sizing is a great cost savings to our health-care facility consumers."
