Nostalgia Can Be Good Medicine
This my friends is yet another homage to a truly nostalgic, classic scent that will span over the "memory banks" of a hundred years. I'm willing to bet that most folks today across the globe will recognize this comforting, soothing scent of yore...Vick's VapoRub!
Doug, you've gone too far or I know what you are thinking but hear me out first!
Vick's, like so many other originals pretty much created the self home-care industry as we now know it. They had so many firsts, from their OG product that we celebrate here today, VapoRub (1894), to the invention of the modern cough drop (1931), to their sinus clearing inhaler (1941), to Sinex (1959), all the way up to everyone's best friend, NyQuil! If you are living in a country outside of the USA you may also be familiar with the brand or at the very least, have used a similar product inspired by Vick's. They really were movers and shakers!
But with that kind of greatness comes their far reaching influence on all of us, especially in the matter of scent & that is what we are most interested in as always! And unless you are 130 years old, this familiarity began in childhood.
In the spirit of complete transparency, this was a customers idea*! But having grown up being allergic to pretty much everything, it truly resonated with me. It also took me back to my childhood sick days...

Introducing The CK-6 Formula: Fat of the Land
CK-6 is made up of some very Exotic Butters, Oils and Waxes from around the world: Kokum Butter, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Jojoba Wax, Bacuri Butter, Cupuacu Butter and Murumuru Butter
A Mystical Trifecta of Slick
Bacuri Butter: is very popular in the north of Brazil, it comes from the seeds of a beloved local fruit with a rich pulp, and flavor.
Bacuri butter has a high absorption rate, due to its high level of tripalmitin (50% to 55%), which penetrates the skin quickly. The high amount of fatty palmitoleic acid (5%), compared to other oils (less than or equal to 0.5 to 1.5%), makes the Bacuri oil a fantastic emollient, and a super moisturizing agent. Think killer post shave feel!
Capuacu Butter: is a close cousin to the cacao plant, the trees and fruits are similar, however, cupuacu has a richer pulp. Cupuacu butter is naturally softer than cacao, therefore easier to use, and offers more benefits than the cocoa butter.
Cupuacu butter has very high water absorption capacity (Over 200% Greater Than Lanolin)- Read that again. Due to its capacity for water absorption and the ability to obstruct the evaporation of moisture from the skin, Cupuaçu butter just might be one of the best moisturizing ingredients available.
Murumuru Butter: is a phenomenally slick butter that gives a most excellent skin feel and slip. It is called the "vegetable silicone" for its ability to rapidly replace mineral silicon in the dermis. It comes from the seeds of a palm tree that is very abundant in the wet regions of the Amazon forest.
Murumuru Butter is also rich in vitamin A and C and Omega fatty acids 3, 6, and 9. The main fatty acid found in this butter is called Lauric acid (at an astonishing 47%) It also has myristic acid, oleic, palmitic and linoleic acids. When these 3 sisters combine with Kokum, Cocoa, Jojoba & Shea you get some serious Premium, Luxury, Fatty Lather; killer creamy, slick, buttery goodness that possesses Superb Residual Slickness and Earth Shattering Post Shave Feel! You will not even need to use a balm after and good luck keeping your hands off your face all day!
