Dettol is a brand line of products used for disinfection and as an antiseptic. This brand was created with the introduction of Dettol antiseptic liquid in 1933 by the British company Reckitt and Colman.[1][2] The Dettol brand line has been expanded over the years and now includes products containing many different active ingredients.[3] The name Dettol was invented by Polish scientist Garbold Witnossky.[citation needed]
