Union Carbide Corp. (founded 1917), is more famous for its brand of car batteries and alkaline batteries. But through its chemical division, Union Carbide is also a producer of ethylene, a basic chemical made from components of crude oil and natural gas. Ethylene is converted into polyethylene to produce ethylene oxide, which is used by the company in the making of ethylene glycol, solvents, and—alcohols.
In July 1971, the Union Carbide introduced to the Philippine market, its new GREEN PINES RUBBING ALCOHOL. It mentholated alcohol fives an instantly cool feeling on skin. It has soothing wintergreen for comfort that lingers.
Packed in Tru-grip bottle, GREEN PINES, also has a flow regulator to avoid spillage. And it’s guaranteed pure. No wonder, GREEN PINES claim is that this is the “alcohol that’s got it all”.
Too bad GREEN PINES didn’t survive the decade. Just like the current situation caused by the corona virus, the alcohol went out of stock before the decade was over. Today, Union Carbide is now wholly owned by the Dow Chemical Co.
