1979 commercial for DAZ
Daz is the name of a popular laundry detergent on the market in the United Kingdom and Ireland. It is manufactured by Procter & Gamble and is lower priced than P&G’s main brand, Ariel. Aggressively marketed, it is associated in popular culture with the “Daz Doorstep Challenge” series of commercials, which saw various ‘hosts’ including Danny Baker, Shane Richie and Michael Barrymore surprising house occupiers at the door and asking them to put Daz to the test against a rival detergent. The advert was famously spoofed by Dom Joly in the British sketch series Trigger Happy TV where Dom would knock on doors presenting the ‘zap mega’ challenge. He then ran from the scene with the crew in tow, arms akimbo, legs flailing while the occupier went to retrieve a white garment. The occupier then returned to the door looking bemused. The advert was also spoofed in a John Smith’s advertising campaign featuring Peter Kay. Recent TV commercials are set in an obviously fictitious “Cleaner Close” soap opera.

Biactol/Clearasil is the top-selling brand of skin care and acne medication, whose products contain chiefly benzoyl peroxide, sulfur & resorcinol, triclosan, or salicylic acid as active ingredients. Clearasil has a wide range of products both for rapid and sometimes slow acne treatment and for everyday prevention.
Biactol was invented in the United States in 1950 by Ivan Combe with the help of chemist Kedzie Teller. At this time, it was the first dermatological brand created specially for younger skin to fight against pimples (acne). The active ingredients in the original product were sulfur and resorcinol, similar to the pre-existing adult acne product Acnomel. Combe used the popular ABC television show American Bandstand to help promote the product and its superior smell. In 1975, Wolfman Jack signed a contract promoting the product Biactol Acne Ointment.
In 1961 the brand was bought by Richardson-Vicks.In 1985 Richardson-Vicks was acquired by Procter & Gamble together with Clearasil. In 2000 Clearasil moved to the Boots Group portfolio. In 2006 Boots Healthcare International was purchased by Reckitt Benckiser and now Clearasil is a part of the RB portfolio.
