About Swan Soap
Swan was a brand of soap introduced by the Lever Brothers Company in 1941 to compete with Ivory. Swan was advertised as a soap that could be used in the kitchen as a hand soap or in the bathroom to bathe the baby.
Swan, like Ivory, was a floating soap, but Lever had developed and patented a new manufacturing method that both streamlined the process and resulted in a finer product more like milled soap. A typical advertisement boasted that Swan was "the white floating soap that's purer than the finest castiles". Lever and Procter & Gamble became embroiled in litigation over the process and products of it. Lever sued Procter & Gamble for patent infringement after the format of Ivory changed; the Appellate Court found that the patent had been infringed and Procter & Gamble were required to pay $5.675 million to Lever.
