Original Jar

Not many lip balms have been around 75 years. But then, no other lip balm has Carmex’s time-tested formula. Generations have relied on our iconic white jar with its yellow cap to help moisturization, prevent dry lips and treat cold sore symptoms. No wonder pharmacists have ranked Carmex the #1 recommended lip balm for 14 straight years.

  • Formulas with camphor and menthol soothe severely dry lips and pain from cold sores.
  • We add petrolatum because it creates a long-lasting water barrier, acting like a bandage while healing takes place.
  • Your skin’s lipid bilayer is made up of two layers of fatty acids; its job is to help keep moisture in the skin. Our Original Jar includes lanolin, which replicates the way the lipid bilayer in your skin retains moisture.
