In 1865, a young, clever and determined Arthur Tilley conspired a plan to use his creative talent to create a soap and perfumery works - Tilley Soaps. A brand unique to Australia, Tilley is now proudly the oldest 100% Australian owned soap manufacturer, celebrating 150 years in the industry.
Following success in its home-town, Tilley ventured further afield, exhibiting successfully at the World Trade Fairs in London, Paris, New York and Philadelphia in the 1890s and around the turn of the century winning numerous awards and even Royal Treaties by appointment to the Queen.
It’s safe to say that 150 years later, the creative and innovative skills Arthur embedded into Tilley Soaps are still strong. Soap making is still an art, a soap maker’s work is never done and the brand is busy preparing for another 150 years (and more!) of triumphs in Australia, New Zealand and around the world.
