Welcome to my Old Spice Collectible web site. I started this site to provide a resource to collectors of Old Spice for Men toiletries. The contents of this site reflect my own research based on sales catalogs from 1938 to about 1992 as well as contributions from many collectors willing to share new items and information.
Old Spice is a registered trademark of Procter and Gamble.
Please note that I am not affiliated with Old Spice or Procter & Gamble,
and I am not interested in buying items or selling stuff from my collection.
If you are unhappy with some aspect of Old Spice products, I do not care
and ask that you contact P&G directly.
The scope of information here is limited to Old Spice for Men toiletries
between 1938 and the early 1990s, produced mainly to the US market
(though you will find information here and there on products made for
Great Britain and Canada). Procter and Gamble bought the brand in
1990 and unfortunately they have been unwilling to share any product
information with me. Therefore I am unable to provide much clarity
for anything much after the early 1990s.
The Shulton Company is best known for its line of Men's fragrances
and toiletries, but Shulton began in 1934 as a manufacturer of soaps and
women's fragrances, among them Early American Old Spice (the
use of the term "...for Men" started with the introduction of
the men's products in 1938), Friendship Garden and Desert
Flower. By the time of its sale to American Cyanamid in
the 1970 it was a diversified world-wide company making men's and
women's toiletries, beauty products and a wide range of household
products and industrial chemicals.
