The origins of the Olay® brand are based on love. The year was 1952 when a man created a gift for his wife after observing her frustration with the thick, waxy beauty creams on the market at that time. A chemist by trade, he set out to create a new beauty product that would moisturize her skin without being greasy, and leave her feeling beautiful and feminine. They fine tuned the product together, adding just the right fragrance and signature hue and the legendary Oil of Olay Beauty Fluid was born. The light, greaseless product and the brand enjoyed phenomenal success; it was acquired by Procter & Gamble in 1985 and the name changed to Olay® in 2000. Because regular soap can leave your skin dry, today the iconic brand encompasses a range of skincare products including soap-free formula body wash with shea butter for dry skin; reviving ultra moisture body soap with shea butter; continuous hydration body wash and more.
