In 1937 Alfred Woelbring invented the Carmex lip balm and started its production as a family business. For 20 years, him and his wife were manufacturing and packing them into the recognizable yellow packaging. No doubt, this brand might be one of the most loved and popular ones in the industry. And this is no surprise, as it is really effective and has a pleasant smell and with a really nice texture. Additionally, it is accessible pretty much everywhere.
