In the 1940s, a pharmacist on Curaçao was after the creation of a new after-shave lotion. After several experiments with different oils and ingredients, the pharmacist arrived at the recipe of what would later become Alcolado Glacial, an unique mentholated splash lotion. He couldn’t create the after-shave that he was after, but he still created a wonder product with highly refreshing qualities. After this, he approached Curaçao Laboratories and sold the company the secret recipe in 1948.
After the mentholated splash lotion became the favorite product of every household in Curaçao, Glacial extended its portfolio with several other products:
- Glacial Hand Sanitizer
- Glacial Rub
- Glacial Soap
These products have one thing in common, the unique mentholated fragrance that distinguishes Glacial from all other brands, and its unique sanitizing qualities.
