Victor Mills

Founded by grandfather Victor Mills

Victor Mills was an American chemical engineer who, while working for Procter & Gamble Co., revolutionised child care by inventing the disposable nappy. He began work on this project in the 1950s, using his grandchildren as test subjects (born 1897, died 1 Nov 1997).

While the general view was that fathers knew best, Vic Mills believed that grandfathers knew a little bit better. This man, who happened to work for Procter & Gamble, was looking for an easier way to wrap his grandson. This was the birth of Pampers.

Some went to Woodstock. We went to department shops, supermarkets and drugstores across the country to sell a nappy that keeps babies dry and parents happy. The only problem was that nobody knew exactly where to put Pampers. Our nappies were so new that you could find them in the convenience department, food, stationery or even the medicine department.




Bell-bottoms. Platform shoes. And glue. But not liquid. But adhesive tape. We replaced the classic needle with adhesive tape so that parents could take a look inside the nappy without getting stung. And while others were at the disco, we developed new models like Pampers Toddler Size, Extra Absorbent Daytime, Improved Newborn, Quilted Pampers and Premature Infant Size.




During this time everything revolved around excesses. Even nappies. We introduced value packs, because you can never have enough nappies. We also had other brilliant ideas: The first thin nappy made of absorbent gelling material, with elastic leg cuffs, tabs that could be fastened again, and softer inner material. We thought that our progress should also be a bit excessive.




Forget money. Show me all the new Pampers. We developed the Ultra Dry Thins nappies, which drew moisture into the absorbent body and then absorbed even more liquid. We also invented the first stretch inserts, which made our nappies even more comfortable.



"What will they think of next?" We're the ones who always come up with something. We have already made nappies that breathe - yes, exactly, breathe. Plus Premium and Baby-Dry nappies that keep baby's bottoms soft and smooth with a protective layer of care lotion. Grandpa Vic would be very proud of us.



At Pampers we care about the healthy and happy development of babies. When discovering their world, playing and sleeping, a nappy must not be allowed to interfere. That's why our experts carefully select the materials for the nappies: They pay particular attention to safety and excellent performance to keep your pet's skin dry and healthy.
