Modern implications

Many modern health products continue to be marketed using techniques formerly associated with snake oil. The marketing comprises storefronts, retail stores, and traveling peddlers; example products are herbalism, dietary supplements, or a Tibetan singing bowl (used for healing.) Claims that these products are scientific, healthy, or natural are dubious.

There are no known accounts of snake oil peddled in the United States or Europe containing any trace of actual snake extract (unlike snake oil in traditional Chinese medicine). Snake oil in Western culture is a fraudulent panacea, although generally less dangerous than many other patent medicines containing intoxicating or hazardous ingredients. Nonetheless, snake oil represents a type of fraud that covers the intoxicating drugs once sold at medicine shows. Many of these remain available today, though they may be manufactured by pharmaceutical companies, require a prescription, and undergo government regulation.

History

The marketing concept for snake oil was likely transferred to the US from trade, immigration, and exposure to 18th-century British culture. However, the actual source of its use as a folk remedy was likely introduced, similarly to its introduction in the UK, by Chinese laborers involved in building the First Transcontinental Railroad in the US, and were undoubtedly familiar with traditional Chinese medicine, using snake oil to treat joint pain such as arthritis and bursitis, while introducing it to fellow American workers. When rubbed on the skin at the painful site, snake oil was claimed to bring relief. This claim was ridiculed by 19th-century rival medicine salespeople, who competed with snake oil entrepreneurs in peddling other medicines for pain, often offering more hazardous alternatives such as alcohol or opium.

Patent medicines originated in England, where a patent was granted to Richard Stoughton’s elixir in 1712. There were no federal regulations in the United States concerning the safety and effectiveness of drugs until the 1906 Food and Drugs Act. Thus, the widespread marketing and availability of dubiously advertised patent medicines without known properties or origin persisted in the US for a much greater number of years than in Europe.

In 18th-century Europe, especially in the UK, viper oil had been commonly recommended for many afflictions, including the ones for which oil from the rattlesnake (pit viper), a type of viper native to America, was subsequently favored to treat rheumatism and skin diseases. Though there are accounts of oil obtained from the fat of various vipers in the Western world, the claims of its effectiveness as a medicine have never been thoroughly examined, and its efficacy is unknown. It is also likely that much of the snake oil sold by Western entrepreneurs was illegitimate, and did not contain ingredients derived from any kind of snake. Snake oil in the United Kingdom and United States probably contained modified mineral oil.

In popular culture within the United States, snake oil is particularly renowned to be a commodity peddled at American Old West-themed medicine shows, although the judgment condemning snake oil as medicine took place in Rhode Island, and involved snake oil manufactured in Massachusetts. The snake oil peddler is a stock character in Western movies, depicted as a traveling “doctor” with dubious credentials, selling fake medicines with boisterous marketing hype, often supported by pseudo-scientific evidence. To increase sales, an accomplice in the crowd (a shill) will often attest to the value of the product in an effort to provoke buying enthusiasm. The “doctor” will leave town before his customers realize they have been cheated. This practice has wide-ranging implications, and is known as a confidence trick, a type of fraud. This particular confidence trick is purported to have been a common mechanism utilized by peddlers in order to sell various counterfeit and generic medications at medicine shows.

The drastic amount of fraud extending to the drug epidemic was unfolded, and exposed with a judgment against Clark Stanley, which condemned the patented Clark Stanley’s Snake Oil Liniment in US District Court.

Trivia Edit

  • “Snake oil” is an expression that refers to health products with no verifiable benefits.
  • There are 2 game files that prove that the intended use for snake oil is for it to have no use:
    • : part of the 3rd line reads: “”. “We” means the developers.
    • : lines 23 to 27 read, which mean it is a fuel with a value of 0 and is a poison cure that does not cure at all:

Origins and history

Around the late 19th century, the American cultural imagination created the figure of the traveling salesman who went about small towns and rural areas using charm and showmanship to sell supposedly miraculous elixirs and powders in public places. These cure-alls were usually fraudulent, but the salesman could get away with selling them because he would clear out immediately after doing business. Such salesman of course did exist, but by the 20th century they were mainly a folklorish figure, parodied by actors in stage shows and carnivals and often referred to for rhetorical purposes in writing on unrelated subjects.

Among the fraudulent products associated with these salesmen was snake oil, which was once a real thing. From what we can glean from early use of the phrase, it seems that the original oil was derived not from snakes but rather from the rattlesnake root, also known as the seneca snakeroot, so named because it resembles a snake’s rattle and also because it was believed to both repel rattlesnakes and cure their venom—folk wisdom apparently received from the Native Americans. In early use, the phrase was usually “rattle-snake’s oil,” and this was shortened to “snake oil” by the second half of the 19th century.

This passage, written circa 1730 by William Byrd, a Virginian, perhaps sheds light on the origin of the phrase:

That the later snake oil developed from rattle snake’s oil seems likely when we look at instances such as these, which are from the early 19th century:

The oil must not have worked as well as was claimed, because later that century we begin to see instances such as these, which, in our opinion, show the beginning of the phrase’s transition from its older use to the newer one:

That last example also contains an early reference to the figure of the snake-oil salesman.

Early-20th-century references to snake oil tend to be positive—and there were in fact well-known snake-oil salesmen active during this time, some claiming their elixirs contained oil actually extracted from snakes—though there are inklings in some scholarly sources that learned people regarded the popular belief in snake oil with amusement. The turning point comes around the second world war, after which snake-oil and snake-oil salesman almost invariably bear their modern senses and also begin to gain broader, figurative use—for example:

Finally, for good measure, here are a few recent examples showing how broadly the terms are now applied:

Кто производит масло кобры

Косметические препараты на основе змеиного жира в России не так популярны, как в восточных странах. В нашей стране распространены в основном следующие импортные средства:

  • «Tala» от турецкого производителя;
  • «Dabur» от индийской компании;
  • «Zait Hiya» от пакистанского производителя;
  • «Lorys» от японской фирмы «Lion»;
  • «TianDe» от китайской компании «Tiens».

Масла из змеиного жира быстро восстановят ваши волосы. В России стоимость одного флакона 120 миллилитров составляет примерно 500 рублей.

Перед использованием ознакомьтесь с инструкцией и отзывами, и обязательно проверьте, не вызовет ли средство аллергической реакции.

Бальзамы на основе змеиного жира улучшают рост новых волос, а еще ухаживают за лицом и телом.

Массаж с использованием змеиного экстракта лечит многие заболевания опорно-двигательного аппарата, спины, тканей и суставов организма, а также снимает боль.

From cure-all to quackeryedit

A report of the 1917 decision of the United States District Court for Rhode Island, fining Clark Stanley $20 for “misbranding” its “Clark Stanley Snake Oil Liniment”.

The composition of snake oil medicines varies markedly among products.

Clark Stanley’s Snake Oil Liniment – produced by Clark Stanley, the “Rattlesnake King” – was tested by the United States government’s Bureau of Chemistry, the precursor to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA,) in 1916. It was found to contain: mineral oil, 1% fatty oil (assumed to be tallow), capsaicin from chili peppers, turpentine, and camphor.

Although most snake oil in the Western world was drastically overpriced and falsely advertised, it is arguable whether or not it is actually representative of a placebo—given that Clark Stanley’s Snake Oil Liniment, the only Western produced snake oil known to have been examined, is similar in composition to modern-day or chest rubs. None of the oil content was found to have been extracted from actual snakes. Nonetheless, the composition of most snake oil is essentially the same as Vicks VapoRub, which contains camphor. Snake oil (along with many chest rubs) utilizes camphor as an active ingredient. Clark Stanley, the most renowned peddler of snake oil who is popularly known as “The Rattlesnake King”, marketed a brand of snake oil containing capsaicin as an active ingredient in addition to camphor. Capsaicin also continues to be commonly used in many non-narcotic pain patches, and is found in many competing brands of chest rubs as well as in pepper spray.

In 1916, subsequent to the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act in 1906, Clark Stanley’s Snake Oil Liniment was examined by the Bureau of Chemistry, and found to be drastically overpriced and of limited value. As a result, Stanley faced federal prosecution for peddling mineral oil in a fraudulent manner as snake oil. In his 1916 civil hearing instigated by federal prosecutors in the U.S. District Court for Rhode Island, Stanley pleaded nolo contendere (no contest) to the allegations against him, giving no admission of guilt. His plea was accepted, and as a result, he was fined $20 (about $457 in 2018). The term snake oil has since been established in popular culture as a reference to any worthless concoction sold as medicine, and has been extended to describe a widely ranging degree of fraudulent goods, services, ideas, and activities such as worthless rhetoric in politics. By further extension, a snake oil salesman is commonly used in English to describe a quack, huckster, or charlatan.

Historyedit

The marketing concept for snake oil was likely transferred to the US from trade, immigration, and exposure to 18th-century British culture. However, the actual source of its use as a folk remedy was likely introduced, similarly to its introduction in the UK, by Chinese laborers involved in building the First Transcontinental Railroad in the US, and were undoubtedly familiar with traditional Chinese medicine, using snake oil to treat joint pain such as arthritis and bursitis, while introducing it to fellow American workers. When rubbed on the skin at the painful site, snake oil was claimed to bring relief. This claim was ridiculed by 19th-century rival medicine salespeople, who competed with snake oil entrepreneurs in peddling other medicines for pain, often offering more hazardous alternatives such as alcohol or opium.

Patent medicines originated in England, where a patent was granted to Richard Stoughton’s elixir in 1712. There were no federal regulations in the United States concerning the safety and effectiveness of drugs until the 1906 Food and Drugs Act. Thus, the widespread marketing and availability of dubiously advertised patent medicines without known properties or origin persisted in the US for a much greater number of years than in Europe.

In 18th-century Europe, especially in the UK, viper oil had been commonly recommended for many afflictions, including the ones for which oil from the rattlesnake (pit viper), a type of viper native to America, was subsequently favored to treat rheumatism and skin diseases. Though there are accounts of oil obtained from the fat of various vipers in the Western world, the claims of its effectiveness as a medicine have never been thoroughly examined, and its efficacy is unknown.

Как применять змеиный жир для волос

Примерно 3 раза в неделю перед водными процедурами нагрейте средство в руках и движениями по кругу втирайте его в корни волос около 5 минут. После этого на 10-15 минут оставляйте впитаться, затем мойте голову с шампунем как обычно.

Вы можете чувствовать небольшое онемение кожи, если масло содержит яд кобры.

Изменения в лучшую сторону будут заметны почти сразу, а через пару месяцев волосы станут объемнее и пышнее.

Если волосы сухие и постоянно путаются, проделывайте такой массаж: нагрейте змеиный жир в ладонях и нанесите на волосы от корней до кончиков. Он восстановит структуру локонов и вылечит их.
