The California Fig Co. opened in Reno, Nevada, in 1878, selling its only product, Syrup of Figs. By 1883, the company moved its headquarters to San Francisco, where a large factory was built. By the early 1900's the company saw success – at least until the passing of the Pure Food & Drug Act of 1906. Not long after the passing of the Act, the Journal of the American Medical Association commented that “Syrup of Figs is a laxative whose chief advertising asset is its name.” The laxative effect was produced by Senna, a tropical herb comprising 25% of the mixture. Another 6% was composed of alcohol, making its effect roughly the same as beer bottled during that period. The Sterling Remedy Co. purchased the California Fig Co. in 1912.
