Did you know?

The first liquid soap was patented in 1865 by William Shepphard, but it was 15 years before the product hit the marketplace.

In the United States 2011 spent more than $3.1 billion on hand and body soap.

Minnetonka Corporation stopped competitors from following their lead by purchasing all of the pumping mechanisms needed to dispense their Soft Soap product. Colgate Company acquired Minnetonka around the turn of the century and they continue to produce a line of Soft Soap under that brand name. About the same time, the B.J. Johnson Soap Company began marketing a similar product, which was made from olive and palm oils. The ingredients were incorporated into the brand name. The new product quickly became the star in the Johnson soap line. The company eventually changed their name to match the brand - Palmolive.
