In 1890s, Unilever began with the vision of William Hesketh Lever, the founder of Lever Brothers. As a young man helping out at his father’s store, he envisioned selling packaged soap to promote cleanliness as in those days, uncleanness lead to many sicknesses. William had a mission in life to make cleanliness and hygiene a top priority in every home. He started manufacturing soap in a plant at Port Sunlight.
Today, Unilever is a trusted name in nutrition, hygiene and personal care. Unilever has been adding vitality to the lives of consumers, creating products that help people feel good, look good and get more out of life.
