Disclosure: I am a P&Gmom/mamanP&G. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events and opportunities. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Almost 5 billion times a day, P&G brands touch the lives of people around the world. And P&G people work to make sure those brands live up to their promise to make everyday life just a little bit better, now and for generations to come. 

P&G Canada is celebrating 100 years! It's amazing how products we have come to know and love have evolved over the years. Check out this interesting infographic below:


Most products listed from 1984 and up, I can probably remember seeing throughout my childhood at one time or another. My parents, grandparents and family friends all used these household products. It makes me proud to know a name so trusted as P&G can be part of my own family today. Keep up the good work, here's to the next 100 years! :)

  5. I don't have any stories really, only when I smell Ivory soap it brings back so many wonderful memories of my grandmother, since that is what she used. Tide has been in our family for like forever, but with rising costs I only buy it when it comes on sale now!

  41. My mother has very sensitive skin - so the P&G soaps like Ivory or Dove have been her favourites for years, to the point were they have become the default products in our house!

  42. From as far back as I can remember my mother and both grandmothers used Ivory soap. I never saw any other brands. As a teen growing up, I personally didn't care for Ivory, thought it was boring and really had no scent to it but back then it seemed to be the bar to buy. I on the other hand I am a tide and bounce user..have been for the last 30 years at least.
