Bounty is an American paper towel product manufactured by Procter & Gamble in the United States. It was introduced in 1965. Bounty, who's tag line, “the quicker-picker-upper!” came about through the acquisition of Charmin in 1957 by Procter & Gamble, its first consumer-paper products business. Charmin Towels was the successful predecessor to Bounty, which led to P&G's strategic investment in research and development of the innovative Bounty. While most paper towels were being marketed promoting their strengh or softness, P&G found consumers preferred absorbency. With this new idea for marketing, Bounty replaced Charmin towels in 1965, introduced a new 2-ply towel, thicker and more absorbent than on the market. From the 1960s to the 1990s, veteran character actress Nancy Walker appeared in a long-running series of popular commercials in the US, in which Walker played Rosie, a waitress in a diner, who used Bounty to clean up spills made by the diner's patrons and demonstrating its better absorption, compared to other brands.
The original tag-line, "the quick picker-upper," was soon changed to "the quicker picker-upper", which became a common catchphrase, long after Walker ceased appearing in Bounty ads. In the UK, they had a campaign featuring 2 large, stubbly men wearing wigs and dresses referred to as Brenda and Audrey performing household tasks that require a paper towel and comparing them to other products. Consumer Reports reported the best paper towel was Bounty DuraTowel, followe by the next two on the list being Bounty products. In 1998, Bounty started selling napkins. In 2007, P&G sold its European business that produced "Bounty" to SCA, the product was rebranded to Plenty in the UK. In Season 9 Episode 1 of the American documentary series Forensic Files, a homicide case was solved with forensic evidence that included Bounty paper towels. Official website

She was born in Evanston, the daughter of Helen Catherine and Lawrence William Morley, an accountant, she served as a member of the Winnebago County Board before she served in the Illinois House of Representatives, Illinois Senate, the U. S. House of Representatives. In the U. S. House, she was vice chair of the House Republican Conference, she served as U. S. Secretary of Labor from 1991 to 1993, she is a member of Gamma Phi Beta Sorority. Martin taught in the Rockford Public School District prior to and including her time as a local representative. A loyalist to the Reagan Administration, she assisted then-Vice President George H. W. Bush with his debate preparation for the 1984 Vice Presidential Candidate Debate against Geraldine Ferraro. Bush touted her as a possible running mate in his 1988 presidential campaign, though he selected Indiana Senator Dan Quayle. In 1990 Martin ran for the U. S. Senate in Illinois against Democratic incumbent Paul Simon.
She was considered a formidable challenger, but her campaign floundered — in ads, Martin poked fun at Simon's trademark bow-tie, but the humorous ad campaign was seen by some as petty and mean-spirited. Simon's popularity proved too much to overcome, he won with 65 percent of the vote, carrying all but two counties in the state. George H. W. Bush tapped Martin to be U. S. Secretary of Labor in his Cabinet when Elizabeth Dole resigned to become president of the American Red Cross. From 1993 to 1999, she was a professor at the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University and Chair of the Council for the Advancement of Women and Advisor to the firm of Deloitte & Touche LLP for Deloitte's internal human resources and minority advancement matters. Martin served together with British politician Shirley Williams as U. N. Special Representative to the Former Yugoslavia during the civil war. In 1995, she tested the waters to run for the 1996 Republican presidential nomination but decided against it after concluding there was insufficient support for her candidacy.
She participated in a Republican primary debate in New Hampshire on New Hampshire local television. Arguably, she would have been the most viable woman to run for the Republican presidential nomination in history to that date. Martin has been a director on the boards of Ryder System, Inc.. Dreyfus Funds, Constellation Energy Group and Procter & Gamble. Martin served as Chairman of the Board of the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. Lynn Morley Martin was inducted as a Laureate of The Lincoln Academy of Illinois and awarded the Order of Lincoln by the Governor of Illinois in 2000 in the area of Religion.

Gleem was a brand of toothpaste made by the Procter & Gamble company. It was discontinued in 2014. Procter & Gamble now markets the Gleem formulation under the brand name Crest White. Advertisements in the 1950s stated that it has GL-70, a supposed odor- and bacteria-fighting compound. Gleem was introduced in 1952 as a competitor to top Colgate's top Dental Cream, with advertising coordinated by Compton Advertising, Inc; the League Against Obnoxious TV Commercials included a Gleem toothpaste commercial in its list of the terrible 10 in May 1963. In 1958 Gleem had become number two in top toothpastes, with Colgate still first in sales and Crest in third place. By 1969, Gleem was a declining brand name. In an effort to obtain additional sales, Procter & Gamble assigned the account to the firm of Mary Wells Lawrence, Rich, Greene; when Gleem II with fluoride and "green sparkles" was introduced within several years, the brand achieved a 9% share of the toothpaste market. However, this portion declined to around 6% with the introduction of new competing brands.
Gleem's main decline was promotion geared toward Crest. The difference between Gleem and Crest is Gleem was a'toothpaste' and contained no fluoride. Fluoride was introduced into Gleem after Crest was first sold in 1955, as a form of consumer competition. While Gleem remained a toothpaste, Crest advanced into "gels,' and so on; until its discontinuance, the Gleem toothpaste package stated'CONTAINS NO SUGAR' in bold print. Crest has been known to carry increments of sugar as well as artificial flavoring and coloring, aimed at coaxing young children and preteen enticement to prompt oral hygiene. In 1963, Gleem carried a 17-percent share of the toothpaste market in third place, with an advertising budget at $7.1 million. Gleem continued to become less prevalent when the American Dental Association granted Crest approval for the ADA logo. In addition, Crest contains stannous fluoride, said to strengthen and protect tooth enamel and fight gingivitis and bacterial infection, but is irritant and stains, while sodium fluoride is more gentle, does not stain, but requires more application to further prevent bacterial infections and can have little effect with calcium.
In 1975, Gleem was supported by $6 million in television advertising alone. In August 1976, Procter & Gamble transferred Gleem from Wells, Greene to the Leo Burnett Company of Chicago, Illinois. List of toothpaste brands Index of oral health and dental articles List of defunct consumer brands

Olay Oil of Olay or Oil of Ulay, is an American skin care line. It is one of Gamble's multibillion-dollar brands. For the 2009 fiscal year, which ended on June 30, Olay accounted for an estimated $2.8 billion of P&G's $79 billion in revenue. Olay originated in South Africa as Oil of Olay. Graham Wulff, a former Unilever chemist from Durban, started it in 1952, he chose the name "Oil of Olay" as a spin on a key ingredient. It was unique in the early days because it was a pink fluid rather than a cream, packaged in a heavy glass bottle. Wulff and his marketing partner, Jack Lowe, a former copywriter, had tested the product on their wives and friends and were confident in its uniqueness and quality. Olay's marketing was unique, since it was never described as a moisturizer, nor as beauty fluid. Nowhere on the packaging did it say what the product did. Print advertisements used copy such as "Share the secret of a younger looking you" and talked about the "beauty secret" of Oil of Olay. Other advertisements were written as personal messages to the reader from a fictitious advice columnist named Margaret Merril.
They ran in Reader's Digest and newspapers and looked like editorials. Wulff and Lowe, who ran the company under the banner of Adams National Industries, did not sell the product to the trade, but waited for pharmacies to ask for it based on consumer requests; as the company began to market the product internationally, it was decided to modify the name of the product in each country so it would sound pleasing and realistic to consumers. This led to the introduction of Oil of Oil of Ulan and Oil of Olaz. In 1970, ANI opened a test market in the US, was expanding into northern Germany. Richardson Merrell Inc acquired ANI in November 1970. RVI added the sub-name "Beauty Fluid" to help protect the trade mark, they further created TV advertising. The company extended the product range to include items such as Night of Ulay and Beauty Cleanser, expanded into more countries; the result of Richardson Merrell's efforts was a dramatic increase in sales. However, as with many brands, the business was not managed uniformly so there were differences in performance between the countries.
RVI was acquired by Procter & Gamble in 1985. P&G expanded Olay both in lineup and internationally. Olay became P&G's 13th billion dollar brand in 2013. Since the range has been expanded to include a full range of hypoallergenic variants and creams with the aim of meeting the full range of skincare needs, whatever the user's age or skin type; the brand includes soap, body wash. Olay Cosmetics was launched in 1996 but discontinued in 2001. In 1999, it was decided to unify the brand under a global name. Thus, Oil of Ulan and Ulay became Olay on a worldwide basis, except in German-speaking regions and Italy, where it remained "Oil of Olaz". In the Netherlands and Belgium, it was renamed just "Olaz"; the Olay brand has expanded into a range of other products grouped into "boutiques" including Complete, Total Effects, ProX, Regenerist Luminous, Fresh Effects and White Radiance. Olay is the market leader in many countries including the US, UK, China. Olay has extended its heritage as a moisturizer to stay looking young, to formally creating the "anti-aging" category in mass stores with the launch of Total Effects in 1999.
Active Hydrating Formula the least expensive variety, bears the closest resemblance to the pink "Oil of Olay" marketed in the US before the P&G acquisition. The launch was double the typical price of a mass market moisturizer at the time. Today, there are numerous products on the market. Olay Regenerist was the best performing anti-aging cream in a 2006 test done by a consumer association, outperforming some much more expensive brands; this report stated: But the U. S. consumer union said. It advised that staying out of the sun or using skin products with a high sun protection factor was the best option; the consumer union said: "We found that after 12 weeks our top-rated products did smooth out some fine lines and wrinkles." However, it added: "Even the best performers reduced the average depth of wrinkles by less than 10 per cent, a magnitude of change was, alas visible to the naked eye." Olay's current slogan is "Ageless". Previous slogans included "Your best beautiful", "Challenge what's possible" and "Love the skin you're in".
In October 2000, Olay launched in the Philippines. In August 2007, Olay was launched in India. Since 2010, Oil of OLAZ has been known as OLAZ in German-speaking countries. Slogan: "Olaz lässt Sie strahlen." The Olay brand strives to understand more about the biology of skin and utilize large portions of their resources to research and development. Examples of their most recent research projects include the "Multi-Decade and Ethnicity Project", launched in 2012 with their partners, 23andMe; the objective of the project was to research the genealogical science of skin aging. The final results were presented to the 23rd World Congress of Dermatology in June 2015. In August 2016, Olay launched a new innovative tool called the Skin Advisor, designed to help consumers find the right product for their exact skin type. After uploading a selfie and answering some skin care questions, the Skin Advisor will analyze your skin, tell you your skin age and provide product recommendations for any problem areas.
Olay uses many different ingredients in the
