Nu-Lax Ever since Charles Algie created his original formula back in 1937, to be exact. Back in the day, Charles was the proprietor of a health food shop in Melbourne. A handful of Charles’ customers started hinting that they were looking for assistance with their ‘irregularity’.
Using his specialized knowledge of herbs, fruits, and their chemical properties, Charles prepared a special formula designed to give gentle relief from constipation. It was all-natural, great tasting, and most of all… effective! News of the formula took off as Australians breathed a sigh of relief on toilets around the city. It was time to bring relief to the masses! Nu-Lax was officially born in Melbourne in 1944 when the name was trademarked, and mass production began.
