Here is an old catalogue advertisement for White Lily Face Wash. The ad claims the face wash to be an invaluable remedy for pimples, freckles, sallowness, roughness, wrinkles, tan, blackheads, irritations and imperfections of the skin. Although this face wash was manufactured in a chemical laboratory, the ad claims that, unlike other beauty products on the market at the time, White Lily Face Wash did not contain lead, silver, sulphur, arsenic, mercury or other poisonous minerals. The ad includes an illustration of a bottle of the White Lily Face Wash and a head and shoulders side view of a Victorian lady. I scanned this clipping from the Sears, Roebuck & Co. 1907 catalogue. Here are black and white clip art versions of the illustrations from the ad. Click on images to enlarge.
