Do you have to work hard all day long and then go home tired out? Go home to-night to a new sensation, a revelation! Take home with you a Simpson Iodine Foam Bath and have the magical health-giving thrill of a sea-foam frolic in your own warm bath.


When you shake the Simpson Iodine Foam Powder into your bath the water turns quickly to a sea green colour. That wonderfully healthy seaside tang, so clean and bracing, comes suddenly into the air.

Now comes the exciting moment when your body slips into the foamy water. At once your tiredness and fed-up feeling go away. Strength and happiness flow into you as you lie there absorbing the active iodine power which nature in her mysterious way conceals in seaweed. Have a Simpson Iodine Foam Bath to-night. It's a new thrill, a new pleasure, a new sensation that you simply mustn't miss!
