These are two products from the Toiletine Company, in Greenfield and Montague, Massachusetts. The shampoo label states "makes a billowy, cleansing, lather, giving a lustrous sheen to any type of hair." First established in Hoosick Falls, New York, the company manufactured a popular medicated lotion named "Toiletine," and moved to Montague in 1895, where it began manufacturing a line of products including shampoos, lotions, and flavoring extracts like vanilla and lemon. In 1910, the company was purchased by William Ulrich who moved it to Greenfield, Massachusetts. The company disappeared in the early 1970's, probably due to the owner's failure to advertise in an attempt to keep the company small.
