Tokalon face cream, 1945

Scanned from Portuguese magazine O Século Ilustrado, Nº409, 1945.

"I declare! This Biocel food is wonderful for my skin! It proves that one's Skin can eat

My doctor told me that the Biocel contained in this special food is obtained from carefully selected young animals. It penetrates deeply into the skin and supllies it with all the elements it needs to stay firm, fresh and young. It was discovered by a great professor from the Vienna University, and it's been blended with Tokalon face cream. It's Pink, in just the right portions to nurish the cutaneous fibres. Use this cream at night before you go to bed and in the morning use the White Tokalon cream. In three days it will rid you from your skin's imperfections and from flacid, rough muscles. Professor Dr. Stejskal conducted a series of tests in a Vienese hospital on women from the ages of 55 to 72, and their wrinkles disappeared in less than six weeks."

"Excessive uric acid is dangerous to everyone, because it causes a poisoning of the blood. It is the main cause or arthritis. It is a true shackle that one might have to drag along during one's whole life. The most effective, easy and economic treatment consists of always drinking water that's been prepared with Lithinés du Dr. Gustin. It is the wisest regimen to follow, both by the healthy and the ill, to preserve themselves from the ailments of excessive uric acid, such as:

Rheumatism, gout, hepatic and nephritic colics, gall bladder stones, sciatic, diabetes, etc.

Only this way one can avoid poisoning by uric acid and its consequences.

Do not be fooled by imitations."

"The Man in the Moon

The Man in the Moon came down,
Heigh, ho,
He tumbled out of bed.
He wasn't ready for sleep,
Oh, no,
'Something is wrong', he said,
'A bed in the moon is nice,
Ho, ho,
But harder than it may seem
When teeth aren't cleaned at night -
You know,
With Ribbon Dental Cream.'
We gave him a tube, we did,
Tra, lo,
He thanked us much and said,
'Now I can sleep at night,
Heigh, ho,
With clean teeth in my head.'
Good night to you, my Dears,
By, lo,
I'll go to bed and dream
Oh health that comes from use,
Just so,
Of Ribbon Dental Cream.

Moon Man says:-

So many mothers and fathers like to keep their teeth clean and bright with Colgate's Ribbon Dental Cream, that it is no wonder boys and girls ask for this delicious dentifrice to use on their own tooth brushes.

If you want a new little book, just ask for 'Baby's Own Testimonial', and we will send it to you without charge."

"Just as pretty as the day you bought it
Today laundering need not ruin the finest fabrics

You used to think you might as well throw away as trust them to the laundry! So you bowed to fate and ran up truly frightful cleaners' bills. Your fragile Georgette blouses, that very special negligee, the important sheer little collars and cuffs, even the blankets and baby's woolens - you had to send them all to the cleaner's.

BUT these are horrid, bad dreams of the past. Today there is hardly a fabric that Lux has not made it possible to launder quickly, perfectly."

"Real chocolate and fresh, natural ingredients... that's why Brach's chocolate candies taste better.

Brach's wants you and your family to enjoy the best taste and value in chocolate candy. That's why we still take those special steps that make Brach's taste better than other candy. We roast and blend our own cocoa beans, then we prepare seven different real chocolate recipes to give us the best-tasting chocolate for each delicious center. Brach's uses just the right amount of natural ingredients like butter, milk, real oil of peppermint, plump Michigan cherries and fresh ingredients such as crunchy peanuts, chewy raisins and more. We double dip our peanuts in two coatings of real chocolate. And only Brach's Bridge Mix has twelve different centers. No wonder Brach's is still number one for the best-tasting treat in chocolate candy.

For all the good things in candy, look for the familiar Brach's stripes."
