Germolene was invented by Sir William Henry Veno who was born in 1866 in Castle Douglas. In August 1894, aged just 28, he moved to Canada and registered his company Veno’s. Whilst there he invented Veno’s Lightening Cough Cure and Germolene and these famous brands are still known and used to this day.
