About Carmex

It all started back in 1937. Alfred Woelbing suffered from dry, chapped lips and needed a solution. He created a medicated lip balm in his own kitchen, and poured it into little glass pots. The well-known, beloved and trusted CARMEX┬« lip balm was born. In the beginning, Alfred sold the products to pharmacies straight out of his car boot! Nowadays, Carmex is an international favourite, and is sold in over 50 countries. Every minute, more than 145 Carmex products are bought. To this day, Carmex has continued as a family-owned business, with Alfred’s grandson Paul Woelbing making sure the legacy lives on.
