The story of fairy soap !

The Procter & Gamble company (P&G) was founded in 1837 by an Englishman, William Procter and an Irishman, James Gamble.

It began as a small, family operated soap and candle company in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.

In 1837, Thomas Hedley & Co. was established in Newcastle-upon-Tyne making soap and candles.

The company bought the rights to the word ‘Fairy’ and launched the first all-purpose soap in 1898. It remains one of the best-known household product names to this day.

In 1930, Procter & Gamble established its first overseas subsidiary with the acquisition of Thomas Hedley & Co. Ltd.
