Created in 1952 by a man as a gift for his wife, the origins of the Olay® brand are based on love. When a chemist observed his wife's frustration with the thick, waxy beauty creams on the market, he set out to create a new beauty product that would moisturize her skin without being greasy, and leave her feeling beautiful and feminine. Together they fine-tuned the product, incorporating just the right fragrance and signature hue - the legendary Oil of Olay® Beauty Fluid was born. The light, greaseless product and the brand quickly enjoyed phenomenal success; in 1985 it was acquired by Procter & Gamble who, in 2000, shortened the name to Olay®. Today the iconic brand encompasses a range of skincare products including moisturizing body wash; body wash with shea butter for dry skin; facial hair removal kits; age-defying 2 in 1anti-wrinkle day cream and serum; ultra-moisture shea butter beauty bars; ultra-moisture body soap and more.
