Research Facts
In "The Era Formulary" of 1893, the recipe for Vaseline Camphor Ice was listed as follows: 5 ounces of white wax, 2 ounces of paraffin, 8 ounces of Vaseline, 2 ounces of Camphor, 2 ounces of Gylcerine. Melt the first three, add the camphor, and when dissolved, the glycerine. Mix thoroughly and pour into suitable molds.
The white plastic piece inside the tube once contained the words "PUSH HERE" in blue ink.
Originally, camphor was made from the distilled bark and wood of the camphor tree, but is today made chemically from turpentine oil. Camphor is often today used on the skin or inhaled, but doctors warn against injesting it, as it can cause serious side-effects or death. Camphorated oil has not been sold in the United States since the 1980s because of safety concerns, but it can still be purchased without a prescription in Canada.
