Ogston & Tennant - a 19th century Aberdeen-based soap maker.


I spotted this Herb box on my recent trip to Orkney. Colonel James Ogston was a 19th century soap manufacturer from Aberdeen - known as "Soapy Ogston". His factory made soap and candles and was in the Gallowgate area of Aberdeen.  It was founded in 1802 and sometime after 1892, the soap and candle works of Charles Tennant was merged with Ogstons to form Ogston and Tennant Ltd. The combined company later became part of the Lever Group.

Both type of beauty needs care and attention; beauty makes you attractive and appealing. ctbuyer is a skin solution website that provide detailed information about advanced skin care products and treatments related to skin and beauty.

Anti-aging skin care products are more important than most people realize because they allow the skin an opportunity to rejuvenate it can also help to prevent acne.

I agree that one's beauty is God's gift but most of the people nowadays are using this artificial beauty products (strimedix, etc) but it's effective though..
