It’s an interesting artifact. The “fake Jawi” rendition of “Selamat bahagia” is noteworthy: I wonder if it would be allowed today. Helene Curtis was an American firm that, in the ’50s, introduced a shampoo that contained egg. It was called “Helene Curtis shampoo plus egg™” (I’m not joking). In Singapore in the ’60s and ’70s, Kailey Associates made and distributed Helene Curtis products, including this shampoo. I don’t know if Kailey Associates is still around. You haven’t told us when the multiple-language flyer was printed, but it reminds me of the early ’70s when “hippy” sentiments went from being outrageous straight into the mainstream of commercial advertising — as embodied, for example, in the famous Coca-Cola advertisement (“I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony”). felicia December 19, 2018 at 2:04 pm - Reply Hi there Ipoh Remembered. On our database, we estimated the year as 1990. Ngai C. O. December 18, 2018 at 7:05 am - Reply Hi, Google Helen Curtis Wikipedia for more information. The Shampoo with egg is on youtube. It is another one of those gimmicks that come and go, which is profit oriented, without a doubt. On another front talcum powder was another household product that generations swore by. It has now emerged to have caused cancer and asbestosis. Now plastic beads used in cosmetics are polluting the oceans and getting into the food chain, especially shell fish. felicia December 19, 2018 at 2:11 pm - Reply Ngai, Shampoo with egg? Hmm…has anyone tried this? (any other ‘beauty tips’, Ngai?) Ngai C O December 20, 2018 at 12:59 am - Reply Hi felicia, It appears many people certainly have used eggs to shampoo hair. Google “How to Shampoo Your Hair using an Egg” youtube Also Google Shampoo Wikipedia which claims shampoo originates from the Indian subcontinent. I know a former colleague used washing up liquid to wash her hair. As for beauty tips for hair, unfortunately, I cut all my hair leaving a bald head. So no need for shampoo. Ipoh Remembered December 19, 2018 at 11:11 am - Reply Dear Ngai C. O. … About your Youtube suggestion: I had not seen that “shampoo plus egg” advertisement in decades! It’s a mystery to me how anyone could ever have been lured by it — but that’s the danger of advertising, I suppose. As for talc: Yes, like asbestos, it is a silicate. Is it equally carcinogenic? I am not sure. ika December 19, 2018 at 2:24 pm - Reply There is a lot of information on this sunjet at https://www.cancer.org/cancer/cancer-causes/talcum-powder-and-cancer.html. Makes you wonder if any talc is really safe! Ipoh Remembered December 19, 2018 at 9:15 pm - Reply Dear felicia … On our database, we estimated the year as 1990. Thanks for giving me this estimate. Unless you have an independent reason to stick to it, I’d suggest moving it back to 1970-71 — because Kailey Associates ceased to exist shortly thereafter. Shampoo with egg? Hmm…has anyone tried this? Not me! But as I said, the product was introduced in the early ’50s and was still on the market in the ’70s, so someone must have been using it! I do know that real egg was an ingredient, straight out of the shell. I wonder if in tropical climes the shampoo had to be stored in the fridge! —— Dear ika … Makes you wonder if any talc is really safe! Yes, I know what you mean. This modern world … You’ll recall the phenomenon known as “prickly heat.” In Malaya and elsewhere it was (and still is) common. In the old days, to provide some comfort, even babies were thoroughly dusted with a talc-based medicinal powder. Today, if someone were to ask me for advice, I guess I’d suggest not using talcum powder unless absolutely necessary. There are some alternatives.
