Aerosol

The concept of an aerosol originated as early as 1790, when self-pressurized carbonated beverages were introduced in France.

On November 23rd, 1927, Erik Rotheim of Norway patented the first aerosol can and valve that could hold and dispense products and propellant systems.

The first commercially sold aerosol can was patented in 1943. Dubbed the “bug bomb”, the small, portable can enabled soldiers to defend against malaria-carrying mosquitoes by spraying inside tents in the Pacific during World War II.
