About Olay

Olay is the top facial skin care retail brand in the world, created by chemist Graham Wulff in the 1950s. Mr. Wulff wanted to offer his wife Dinah a skin care gift, one which didn't leave her skin looking greasy, but would effectively moisturize her skin. Together, Graham and Dinah fine-tuned everything from moisture absorption and texture to the product color and fragrance, and so Oil of Olay Beauty Fluid was created.

Mr. Wulff and his marketing partner, Jack Lowe, ran the company under the name Adams National Industries, which they eventually sold to Richardson-Vicks, famous for a variety of Vicks medical products, in 1970. With this change, the brand added Olay night creams and Olay body soaps and cleansers as well as Olay facial cleansers to the product line. However, when Oil of Olay was purchased in 1985 by Procter & Gamble, the company opened up the product lines even further to include Olay body lotions, Olay body creams, Olay skin treatment and repair products for various skin conditions, Olay makeup removers, and Olay tanning lotions, all of which include hypoallergenic variations.

Today, Oil of Olay is simply Olay throughout most of the world, though there are still regional variations on the name, such as Oil of Olaz in Italy and Germany, and simply Olaz in the netherlands and Belgium. Always seeking new ways to care for your skin, Olay extended its heritage as a moisturizer for maintaining a youthful appearance, almost single-handedly creating the “anti-aging” skin care category with the launch of Total Effects in 1999.
