Carmex lip balm was invented in 1937 by Alfred Woelbing, literally on the family stovetop. For the next 20 years, Alfred and his wife made Carmex by hand and poured it into the familiar yellow-capped jars.
Eventually production moved out of the Woelbing home and into a rented facility in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, where it remained until the move in 1975 to its current site in Franklin, Wisconsin.
Carma Labs employs about 100 people and is still owned and operated by the family: Alfred’s grandsons Eric and Paul Woelbing. The Woelbing stove is now used for cooking things the family can actually eat.
Now the ultra-moisturizing, satin-shine, SPF 15 formula you love is available for a limited time in four super stylish new designs, for the fashion lover in all of us. New patterns will be released periodically, and these current patterns won’t be around for long. Stock up while you can!
My lips are extremely dry and cracked. I have tried different lip balms over the years to heal my dry lips. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly the Carmex lip balm works.
When you first put it on, it does feel a bit waxy. The lip balm is quickly absorbed into your lips. My lips stay soft long after I apply the lip balm. I have tons of lip balm in the house but the Carmex is the one I reach for every time.
The lip balm retails $2.99. I love the slim design. You can easily carry it in your purse, or pocket.
For soft kissable lips this Valentine’s Day you must try the Carmex moisture plus lip balm.
