Meaning and history

Olay Logo history

The first Olay cosmetics were developed in 1950 by chemist Graham Wolfe. At that time the scientist and his wife Dina were living in South America and were engaged in the production of cosmetics sold in pharmacies. But the European preparations were not suitable for the dry and hot African climate, so the couple had to develop preparations capable of keeping moisture in the skin as long as possible and protecting it from external influences.

35 years after its creation Procter&Gamble bought the Olay brand. Today Olay is recognized as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of skin care products.

Font and Color

The elegant uppercase lettering from the primary Olay logo is set in a fancy sans-serif font with smooth ends of the bars and stable contours of the letters. The closest fonts to the one, used in this insignia, are, probably, Bodrum Sweet 14 Regular, or Sabler Titling Ext Regular, but with the horizontal bar of the “A” shortened, and the ends of the lines softened.
