Unclaimed Property

Important Information About Protecting Your Colgate-Palmolive Stock From Escheatment:

Colgate-Palmolive is required to escheat (i.e., transfer to a state government) your Colgate-Palmolive shares and/or uncashed dividend checks if they are considered abandoned property under relevant state law. Several factors might cause your shares and/or dividend checks to be considered abandoned property. These factors include returned mail, lack of contact with the transfer agent (Computershare) over a three-year period or uncashed checks. Once your shares have been escheated, it can take years to recover them. We urge you to maintain activity on your account via annual communication with Computershare to verify your account information either by phone, mail, email or via their website. Please also keep your address up to date and cash all checks received.

Direct Stock Purchase and Dividend Reinvestment Plan Enrollment

Colgate-Palmolive's Direct Stock Purchase and Dividend Reinvestment Plan, sponsored by Computershare, allows interested investors to purchase shares of Colgate-Palmolive common stock. Shares can be purchased online at www.computershare.com.

Investors can make their initial purchase of Colgate-Palmolive stock and additional cash investments through the Plan.

Colgate-Palmolive's Direct Stock Purchase Plan also offers dividend reinvestment.

You may invest all or a portion of the cash dividends paid to you on your Colgate-Palmolive common stock. There are two options under the dividend reinvestment plan - full dividend reinvestment or partial dividend reinvestment. Please note that dividends already issued cannot automatically be reinvested into your account, this applies to future dividends only.

One-time optional cash investments can be arranged by enclosing a check with the completed enrollment form or the tear-off portion of your account statement. In addition, shareholders may elect to make automated monthly optional cash investments by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT).

For more information and forms, please contact Computershare directly at:
