Learn More About Olay
Today, Olay skin care products remain a favorite among women around the globe. The collection has expanded from the original moisturizer to a full collection of skin care formulas, including cleansers, exfoliators and treatment products. With four highly effective lines, the collection offers something for every skin care need. The brand has a strict quality policy and conducts more than 400,000 quality tests on its products per year, ensuring their purity and safety. If you're looking for affordable solutions to your biggest skin care woes, the Olay collection is the answer.
One of the most familiar and well-loved skin lotions, Olay was originally formulated by a chemist named Graham Wulff in the late 1950s as a gift for his wife, Dinah. She had long been dissatisfied - as were many women at the time - with the available skin products; the thick, waxy formulas were uninspiring and not always effective. The Oil of Olay beauty fluid created by Wulff was a creamy liquid that spread smoothly on the skin and was quickly absorbed. The attractive pink shade and pleasant, mild scent also contributed to making Olay one of the great favorites of skincare lotions.
Since the year 2000, the name has been changed to just Olay and, as part of the Procter and Gamble family of products, has been expanded into an entire line of skin care formulas. While moisturizing and rehydrating are still a part of Olay's mission, other lines of products have also been developed, including firming serums, cleansers and peels, to provide a full range of options for skin care. The Olay products are also known for their purity and safety - yet the brand is famously part of an ongoing commitment to avoid animal testing. Using alternatives to the use of animals in research and testing, the makers of Olay products have reduced the use of animals by 99% - except in the very rare cases when it is necessary to meet government-mandated obligations. After more than 50 years, Olay continues to provide skin care needs for women around the world.
