The first dry soap powder was invented by Robert Hudson in 1837. He was a chemist living and working in West Bromich, Hudson produced his own soap as was the custom for small chemists in towns and villages. His particular soap was coarsly ground and proved very popular with his customers. Soon he opened a small factory and as the business became more successful he was able to move to a large site at Bank Hall in Liverpool. Hudson’s understood that advertising was a useful tool and paid for publicity on a national level, something that few other business could afford. Soon Hudson’s was a household name.
