And while Armand Hammer was a wealthy business dude, he only became interested in owning Arm & Hammer 'cuz everyone kept asking him about it.

But by 1986, Armand Hammer's oil company Occidental Petroleum acquired enough stock in Church & Dwight, which is the parent company of — you guessed it — Arm & Hammer, allowing him to sit on the board of directors.

So in conclusion: Armie Hammer's great grandfather eventually did come to own Arm & Hammer, but the brand is definitely, 100%, absolutely not named after him.
