Lifebuoy was introduced by Lever Brothers in 1895 in the United Kingdom. Originally a carbolic soap containing phenol, different varieties were later introduced without the medicinal,

Lifebuoy was one of the most popular soaps in the United States from approximately 1923 to the mid-‘50s, when perfumed soaps took over the market,

It was the best selling medicated/health soap in North America until roughly 1951. It was well known for its red and yellow packaging, red color and octagonal shape,

As well as its carbolic aroma. Sometime in 1951 or 1952, due to declining sales, Lever Bros. experimented with adding perfumes to the soap, and made the changes permanent in 1954,

Earlier experiments in 1936, 1938, 1939 and 1940 also added an artificial scent to the soap, but generally lasted only one batch. Sales, however,

Continued to decline until 2006, when Lifebuoy was officially completely pulled from the American market. Lifebuoy’s popularity reached its peak between 1932 and 1948,

After World War Two, when more materials were available and rationing was over, other soaps began to take hold of the market. Its popularity waned steadily through the 1950s,

In the mid/late 1960s.
