Maker Colgate & Co.

Maker Details The Colgate-Palmolive Company is an American multinational consumer products company focused on the production, distribution and provision of household, health care and personal products, such as soaps, detergents, and oral hygiene products (including toothpaste and toothbrushes). Under its "Hill's" brand, it is also a manufacturer of veterinary products. The company's corporate offices are on Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. Colgate started in 1806 and merged with Palmolive-Peet in 1928. Based on the name Colgate & Co. instead of Colgate-Palmolive-Peet, this item must be pre-1928.
