New Carmex Cherry Jar and new Carmex Cherry Tube are the first flavored Carmex lip balms in their signature jar and tube packaging. The Original Carmex jar has been a popular lip balm item since its launch in the early 1930’s. The tube, a top item in the lip balm category, was introduced in 1988. Previously, the jar and tube were only available in the original Carmex flavor. In 2006, strawberry and cherry flavors were introduced in the stick form.


Carmex Cherry Jar and Carmex Cherry Tube contain SPF 15 to keep lips protected from the sun, and are sold in distinctive cherry-themed packaging. “Cherry is one of consumer’s most preferred flavors,” says Paul Woelbing, Carma Laboratories CEO, grandson of founder, owner, “and this gives consumers one of their favorite flavors combined with Carmex lip balm.”


Carmex has been a leading choice in lip balms for years. In fact, Pharmacy Times magazine conducts an annual survey asking what products pharmacists recommend most. For nine consecutive years, Carmex has been the number one recommended lip balm. The new cherry jar and cherry tube items will be widely available at drug, mass and grocery retailers this July and August.


Product suggested retail prices are approximately $1.39-$1.49. For more information on Cherry Carmex in the tube or jar, or Carma Labs visit http://www.carma-labs.com/.
