Pears’ Soap
Pears has been one of England’s most beloved brands of soap for years and years! And we’re talking, years and years – Did you know? According to records, Pears Soap was the world’s first registered brand and is therefore the world’s oldest continuously existing brand. This particular box features the the brand’s most famous marketing campaign: Millais’s painting Bubbles. Today’s Pears’ soap is unfortunately no longer the same.
