Carmex is the most popular lip balm in pharmacies in the USA since 1999. Carmex is a unisex product that has received good reviews in a number of magazines and is for many a favorite product. Carmex has an antiseptic effect and contains i.a. menthol which has a cooling effect and counteracts itching and irritation.
Carmex was invented in 1937 by Alfred Woelbing in Milwaukee who needed a good product to heal his own chapped lips. Alfred drove around in his car and sold Carmex from his tailgate and the only marketing that was done was that the rumor spread about a good product. Carmex is no longer manufactured at home in Alfred's kitchen but is now manufactured at Carma Laboratories in Franklin, Wisconsin and sold worldwide.
