Let the company know we want this product back
on February 2, 2013
I was running out so I came to Amazon to buy some more and was disappointed to hear that Vick's Vaporub Greaseless Cream is no longer available. So disappointed that I wrote to P&G. I told them that if the reason they discontinued this product was due to low demand it was because they didn't advertise it.
I think the majority of us only know about the greasy ointment that our parents covered us in when we were kids.
The minute you say Vick's Vaporub to most people the response is ugh! that greasy stuff!
Even if you have a jar of the ointment, how often do you use it and have to replace it? Probably not that often.
So, if it's not advertised and it's not a product that you have to replace often then a lot of people probably didn't even know it existed. I only discovered it myself a few years ago when my aunt asked me to pick up some Vick's ointment for her. I saw the cream and tried it and have been using it ever since.
If I hadn't had to buy the ointment for her, I wouldn't have known about it either! Everyone I've told about it since then had never heard of it but, once they tried it, they loved it too.
This is part of the response I received from P&G:
I'm sorry, but Vicks Vaporub Cream has been discontinued and it's no longer available. Generally, decisions to start or stop making products are based on consumer demand, so feedback like yours is extremely valuable. Please be assured I'm sharing your disappointment with the rest of our team.
So let's create that consumer demand and get this product back!
Take a minute and let the P&G know: [...]
