Kolynos was a line of toothpaste and oral care products created in 1908 by N.S. Jenkins, which claimed to keep your  teeth super white. It was at its most popular during the 1930s and 1940s but was bought by Colgate-Palmolive in 1995.

Today Kolynos is still produced in Latin America, particularly in Brazil where it is sold under the Portuguese name Sorriso or ‘Smile’
