Hedley soap bar

Viewed times

This soap bar was created by Thomas Hedley And Co Ltd established in 1837 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. In 1930 the United States based firm Procter And Gamble (founded by Englishman William Procter and an Irishman James Gamble), established its first overseas subsidiary with the acquisition of Thomas Hedley And Co Ltd.
