In 1904, Alexandre Gilbert, a pharmacist in Paris took over a small laboratory next to his shop and developed “Feuille de Saule”, a cut-to-size willow-leaf plaster to treat corns and calluses.

When the Second World War broke out, the pharmaceutical firm, Gilbert, relocated to Corvées-les-Yys, in the department Eure and Loire, under the direction of Dr Mercier, and then Mr Pinson.

The Company began to expand. As many as 8 employees worked to produce the willow-leaf plaster, “Feuille de Saule”, while the manufacturing formula remained a closely guarded secret.
