Rick - the earliest use I can find is to remove cold cream from the face.

When I went to the Kimberly Clark website their history link said the removal of make-up with cole cream......guess that was the use to get it in the main-steam market, but it must have been developed by the government for gas masks and cold cream was a secondary benifit/use. Just like Tang was developed for the Astronauts and the space program.....
