Colgate Palmolive Philippines celebrates 90 years of making every Filipino happy 

Who would have thought that well-loved brand Colgate-Palmolive is now 90 years old? 

The ubiquitous brand has been in every Filipino household for close to a century providing every need for oral care, personal care and home care with recognized brands like Palmolive, Tender Care, Axion and Ajax. 

These came in the mail recently and my dad was so happy – because these are the same brands we grew up with and we used at home

It’s storied history is one for the books. Established in 1926 in a small office in Binondo with five employees, the initial products sold during that time where brands Pompeia cosmetics, Octagon laundry and Crystal White laundry bar. 1928 saw the office merging with Peet Brothers and the Colgate Company. Popular products such as Colgate Ribbon dental cream and Cashmere Bouquet toiletries were added, along with Palmolive Soaps, which pushes its growth in the next few years. Products were delivered to stores by Carabao or horse-drawn carts. 

In 1941, the office and warehouse was looted by invading soldiers. In spite of this, loyal employees managed to manually copy all entries of the company’s ledgers, writing word-for-word all entries for over a week. This gave the company the opportunity to collect receivables from insurance after the war has ended. 

In 1949, the company was incorporated as Colgate-Palmolive Philippines. The same year, Ajax was also introduced to the market. 
An advertising pioneer; memorable campaigns

Colgate-Palmolive, more often than not, produced memorable TV commercials and campaigns. They were also the first to advertise in color in 1966, when local TV advertising switched from black-and-white to color. 

Ask any Pinoy over the age of 30, and they will remember Alice Dixson’s “I Can Feel It” for Palmolive Naturals, which proceeded to win a Pilak Award na cemented its place as one of the best Philippine ads in the last 50 years. 

In 2007, Colgate’s Super Mega Brushing campaign earned a Guinness World Record for the most number of children (41,000 to be exact!) brushing their teeth at the same time. 

In the age of YouTube and Millennials, their Palmolive Naturals “Bounce” music video featuring Julia Barretto, Janella Salvador and Liza Soberano is considered one of the top 10 performing ads of 2015. 
Giving back to the Communities 

One of the company’s core values is caring for the communities where it’s present. The Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures program has been supporting oral health education across the country with free dental screenings and tooth-brushing drills, distribution of oral care kits and integrating oral health education materials with Kinder and Grade 1 curricula. This was made possible by the company’a partnership with the Department of Education for nearly two decades. 

Other programs include Kabarangay sa Dental Health Program, in partnership with the Philippine Dental Association, which raises awareness all over the country through free dental check-ups and product sampling. 

To celebrate its 90th anniversary, Colgate-Palmolive partnered when Puregold in support of Operation Smile Philippines, an NGO focused on providing free surgeries to indigent children afflicted with cleft lips/palate. They also partnered with Robinsons Supermarket in support of World Vision Philippines. 

Currently, Colgate remains the Oral Care brand trusted by dentists while Palmolive remains the number one personal care brand in the Philippines.

Here’s the Secret in Achieving that Coveted Ash Brown Hair


One of my happiness in life is coloring my hair. I get a certain kick out of changing the color of my hair, depending on my mood and preference. Through the years, my hair have gone through different transformations, from blonde to red to black. 

To illustrate a point, here’s a mini evolution of my hair: 


Would you believe I still managed to land a job with this mess of blondish-orange hair on my head. This was a result of constant wash and wear that finally wrecked havoc to my ash blonde hair. 

I stayed blonde – with many hues possible – for almost seven years. Just changing the intensity of the hair or dialling it back until I finally got tired of it. 


Then I got tired of blonde and reverted to black. It was easier to maintain and my hair was getting dry due to all those chemicals. Plus, I wanted to see how I look like with normal hair. 

I got restless in no time. Right on cue, I was sent a package of L’Oreal Excellence Fashion, made possible by Lazada and L’Oreal. I was given the color Ashy Nude Brown, which was said to be the color on trend this season. 


Brown is a color that I have yet to try on my hair and the hair dye package came just at the right time. Yes, I am one of those girls who do things to their hair when they are stressed/sad/bored. 

The package came with a colorant, a conditioner, a serum which I applied to my hair prior to coloring, plastic gloves, an an applicator which doubles as a comb. 

Application was easy and fuss-free: you mix the color, you apply the protective serum to your hair BEFORE you start dyeing your hair and then you apply it thoroughly. Leave 15-20 minutes depending on the color intensity you want to achieve, finally wash it off using the hair conditioner included in the package. 

Here’s the end result: 


The color is not as intense as I want it to be – I am chalking it up to the fact that I have really thick hair, with pronounced white hair here and there. Color is also more defined in front compared to the back which left me wondering if I should have used both packages, considering the length and thickness of my hair. I have the other package to my mom whose hobby is to make sure “she looks younger” than her real age. I’ve seen her wear it and the color is more pronounced on her hair. Maybe because it’s shorter and less thicker than what I have. 

I am still keeping my Ashy Nude Brown hair but this is bound to change soon. I have a hair appointment coming up — and yes, it’s to color them again. 

And yes – I know – I’m due for a hair treatment appointment soon.
