Dove is an American personal care brand owned by Unilever originating in the United States. The products are sold in more than 150 countries and are offered for both women, men and babies. Dove’s logo is a silhouette profile of the brand’s namesake bird.
The Dove brand, founded by Lever Brothers, began in 1957. When the brand first began, they sold beauty soap bars. They have since expanded to produce a wide range of personal care products including “bady wash, deodorants, body lotions, facial cleansers and shampoos and conditioners”.
Dove is primarily made from synthetic surfactants, vegetable oils (such as palm kernel) and salts of animal fats (tallow). In some countries, Dove is derived from tallow, and for this reason it is not considered vegan, unlike vegetable oil based soaps.
