A Tube of "Darkie" Toothpaste with box by the Hawley & Hazel Chemical Co. Darkie toothpaste was made by the Taiwan-based company Hawley & Hazel from 1933 to 1985 when it was acquired by the US firm Colgate-Palmolive. At that time the toothpaste was named 'Darkie'; it is now called 'Darlie' because of racism concerns. The packaging features an image inspired by an Al Jolson performance. This Tube is in Mint condition, believed to be from the 1980s.
