'Have you a little * Fairy'
in your home?"

There is no sting in Fairy Soap to worry
tender skins; no dyes or high perfumes are used
to hide adulterations. Fairy Soap is so pure
and neutral that it will not harm even the skin
of a babe.

Fairy Soap is white and stays white. It
yields a rich, profuse lather, easily rinsed off;
it comes in a convenient oval cake, just fitting the
hand ; it floats. These qualities combined make
Fairy the ideal soap for toilet and bath. It costs
but you can buy no better toilet or bath
soap at any price.

I wonder if this is related to the UK "Fairy" dishwashing detergent which has hilariously wholesome commercials (with a pre-AbFab Joanna Lumley even).
