It was back in 1937 when Alfred Woelbing started making Carmex® medicated lip balm by hand. He poured the melted preparation into the now-classic little jars in his kitchen. Alfred had cold sores and the balm helped in the cold Northern States of the USA.
I first came across Carmex® in the early 1980s on my first trip to the US. Every desk drawer, every handbag and every bathroom cabinet held a small white jar with the distinctive yellow lid. These days Carmex® offers not only their original balm in those jars but now squeezable tubes and sticks in a variety of flavours, as well as some more medicated options for specific lip issues.
From Skiing to the Beach
Carmex® uses mostly naturally-derived ingredients which are clinically proven to smooth lips after just one use. The classic balm is perfect for combatting the effects of cold winds and freezing temperatures. But Carmex® is an essential beach holiday accessory. Take along the products with the SPV 15 quality. It not only has sun protection but is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes. Enough for a long, safe splash.
Carmex® is now an appreciated lip care classic. The products are small and neat and a little goes a long way. There is plenty of choice, so something for every need or fruity preference.
