PALMOLIVE
-Back to the Home of Olives

Palmolive Soap comes from the Orient and now goes back — a pilgrim returning to its native land. It travels in the kit of all who journey Eastward — the perfected combination of the Palm and Olive Oils so highly prized by ancient users.

For the smooth, creamy, profuse lather which today assures refreshing comfort wherever the user goes, owes its efficiency to the famous natural cleansing agents discovered 3,000 years ago by Agent Egypt.

Palmolive is sold by leading dealers and supplied by popular hotels in guest-room size. It has followed the flag to every part of the world where American soldiers, sailors, and Nurses have been on Duty.
