Dr. Rinse Formula Labels
The Dr. Rinse Formula is said to have been developed during the 1950s by Jacobus Rinse, Ph.D., a Dutch research chemist who moved to the United States in 1949. After experiencing a heart attack in 1951, Rinse experimented on himself and concluded that his formula improved the circulation of blood to his heart. In 1975, Nederma, a Dutch pharmaceutical firm began marketing the formula through health-food stores in Holland under the trade name Linogistine. Marketing under the "Dr. Rinse" name began about three years later in the United States with articles and ads in chiropractic and health-food industry magazines.
