Colgate is an internationally renowned dental hygiene product manufacturer, with a reputation that has seen it dominate markets as far afield as China and India. Founded in America in 1806, this company with its famous red-stripped packaging has come to be forever synonymous with the word toothpaste. The Colgate brand was bought by Palmolive, a soap brand, in 1828, at which point the newly merged company took the title: Colgate-Palmolive.
An interesting fact about the Colgate brand is that it is the only hygiene company in America to have a university named after it. Madison University was named after the Colgate family in 1890 to honour decades of financial investment and support.
Note that this is an international number, but it is free to phone from UK and Ireland landlines.
