After almost a year of development, “The Copacabana Beach Fight Hand Soap” has finally arrived. While developing the idea that inspired our latest soap project, we decided to dive back into the rich soil that only a country like Brazil offers for the first time since our creation of “The Açaí Batch” - sourcing a symphony of natural bacteria killers and skin nourishing botanicals harvested in the motherland of Jiu Jitsu.
Each 8oz. recycled/recyclable PET bottle is packed to the brim with ingredients sourced directly from Brazil to our soap factory in San Francisco, CA, where it is formulated.
Vitamin-rich Açaí Oil, rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, is combined with a potent fungus-fighting blend of Brazilian Peppertree Honey, Brazil-grown Lemon Oil, and our pure Australian Tea Tree Oil. Imported Guarana Powder is then sprinkled in for it’s combination of caffeine and plant-based compounds like catechins + tannins offering antibacterial effects and increased blood flow in the skin. We followed that up with a triple infusion of Brazil-sourced Super-Moisturizers - Cupuaçu Butter, Fermented Coconut Sugar, and Brazilian Coconut Oil to deeply rehydrate hands. This liquid germ destroyer from the Southern Hemisphere is finally rounded off with Aloe Vera to promote faster healing along with a high-grade Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract which lends it’s uniquely sweet scent to this creamy lather.
For our latest soap label design, we enlisted the help of 3rd Degree Jiu Jitsu Black Belt / Artist, Sam Kressin, to emulate an infamous fight that took place on Praia Do Pepê Beach, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1988. As the story goes, the impromptu fight was to settle a dispute between two martial arts academies at the time, one a Luta Livre school, and the other a Jiu Jitsu academy. Needless to say the outcome of this beach fight would re-establish Jiu Jitsu as the superior martial art in Rio. If you know, you know.
