P&G Gives New Account on Ivory Soap

By JOHN NOLAN, Associated Press Writer
Tue Jun 22,12:01 AM ET

CINCINNATI - Procter & Gamble Co. is setting the record straight: It turns out Ivory soap's ability to float wasn't an accident.

Ivory's buoyancy has been used in marketing since the soap went on sale in the 1800s. While the company acknowledged that the soap floats because P&G whips air into it, it long has attributed that to a production mistake.

But company archivist Ed Rider said he has discovered that a P&G chemist, James N. Gamble, had previously studied with another chemist who already knew how to make soap float. Gamble was son of company co-founder James Gamble.

Rider said he has discovered a notebook entry from 1863 in which Gamble wrote: "I made floating soap today. I think we'll make all of our stock that way."

The company's early leadership realized that the floating capacity could have marketing appeal, Rider said.

So the earliest P&G advertising for the product emphasized that, along with Ivory's usefulness as both a laundry and bathing soap and the long-standing claim that it is "99 and 44/100ths percent pure."

P&G is disclosing the new information in a book on the history of P&G, the consumer products giant also known for Tide detergent and Crest toothpaste. Called "Rising Tide," the book is due in bookstores on July 8, Rider said.

The company on Tuesday also rolled out a new, green soap bar called Ivory Aloe. It goes on the market in July ? exactly 125 years after the first recorded sale of Ivory.

The green bar also floats.

so if floating soap wasn't an accident...was sinking so an accident...let's ponder............................they probably didkn't think about that in the orignal making.

Dove doesn't add anything to their soap to make it a neutral pH, 'cause Dove isn't soap -- it's detergents.  :smile:  It's not made through saponification.  Actually, most soaps out there aren't made by the standard lye + fat saponification process any more; they're made using fatty acids and other crap.

Soap sinks naturally. All you have to do to make it float is whip air into it.

Boy, this thread's really had its "ups and downs"... :wink:

And, silly me; I didn't think it would go anywhere. But, that's a lesson I learned early on -- I bear no relation to any meaningful demographic, so never listen to myself -- always watch others, and take notes, instead...

Notes:

1) People are fascinated by soap.

2) Whale shit sinks.

3) Pick up milk at the store tomorrow.

I saw a hippopotamous take a shit while it was swimming at san diego zoo. the pool there is glass so you can see under water. I was amazed at the sheer force it was exuberated with. And the sheer volume of shit that blasted through the water. Soon you couldn't see much anymore.

Tell me the truth. Did the sheer force involved make you just a little weak in the knees? It's ok. You can share. I won't tell anyone... :wink:

PS: Underwater feces is exactly why I will NEVER by a glass bottom boat. It's not like the movies, you know...
