Description
Betty Dixon Quick Rinsing Shampoo was made by the Florian Company of Des Moines, Iowa, a division of the Armand Company. Launched in 1929, the Florian line of men’s cosmetic products appears to have been short-lived. The identity of "Betty Dixon" has not been determined. The design of both the label and the bottle indicate a date in the 1930s.
