Research Facts
The word "gauze" is derived from the city of Gaza in the Middle East, where gauze is believed to have originated.
Gauze is a light, woven fabric used mainly for the treatment of wounds, especially in first aid.
Rexall began in the United States in 1902 in Boston, and expanded throughout the country during the early 20th century. Rexall went under in 1986 in the United States, but remains a brand name there and a chain of Drug Stores in Canada.
