Zank, Alex (14 January 2020). "Carmex maker to build new HQ in Franklin". BizTimes – Milwaukee Business News . Retrieved 17 November 2020. As the 2000s unfolded, Carmex experienced a remarkable journey of growth, gaining popularity and becoming easily accessible to people everywhere. The brand’s influence expanded to cover all 50 states, firmly establishing its position as a phenomenon that reached every corner of the nation. During this period of expansion, Carmex introduced an array of delightful new flavors to its lip balm lineup, including Cherry and Strawberry variants. Carmex is a popular lip balm that has been around for decades, and its effects on lips can vary widely from person to person. Many customers have used Carmex without experiencing any issues and have found it effective in moisturizing and soothing their lips. These positive experiences often lead to a strong sense of loyalty and love for the product. Other customers have experience dryness and chapped lips. Some users have reported that with consistent use over time, the product seems to have a tendency to cause lip dryness and even minor irritation. It’s classified as an endocrine disruptor. In 2011, the French Agency for the Safety of Health Products advised limiting its use in cosmetic products.

About Us". Carma Labs Inc. Archived from the original on 25 October 2014 . Retrieved 25 October 2014.Certain ingredients found in Carmex lip care products, like Petrolatum & Paraffin, Salicylic Acid, Octinoxate, and Benzophenone-3, are being scrutinized for potential harm to humans. Studies suggest these chemicals have negative effects on our bodies. Carma Laboratories, Inc. began in Wisconsin in the early 1930s, when Alfred Woelbing began experimenting with creating his own line of lip balm and other cosmetic products. After experimenting with his products, Woelbing created Carmex on his family's stove top. He began by selling the product from the trunk of his car. Popularity increased through word-of-mouth. During this time Woelbing and his wife poured their lip balm into the now well-known yellow-capped jars. Then in 1957, the family business moved out of the kitchen and into a rented facility in the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa. [2] Allergic Reactions: Although rare, some people may develop allergic reactions to specific components of Carmex, resulting in swelling, rash, or hives on the lips or surrounding areas. Salicylic acid is a versatile ingredient found in various products. In shampoos, it acts as a preservative, combats dandruff, and contributes to overall hair care. However, in facial cleansers, its role shifts to exfoliation and acne management. In facial skincare products, it’s even believed to enhance skin texture and alleviate redness and imperfections.

Dryness or Dependence: Some users might find that using Carmex frequently can lead to a cycle of dependency, where the lips feel dry without regular application. carmexthailand (11 February 2018).

Octinoxate is an UV filter. According to Safe Cosmetics, Octinoxate can spur cell growth due to estrogen, a breast cancer risk factor. It also affects thyroid hormones, vital for metabolism and gland development. In females, it disrupts hormone levels, possibly causing infertility, while in males, it lowers sperm count. While they are not permitted in food products, their presence in beauty items raises concerns about potential ingestion and accumulation within our bodies. Flavor and Scent Sensitivities: The flavors and scents added to Carmex products might be too strong or bothersome for some individuals, leading to discomfort. According to Safe Cosmetics, the primary health risk associated with petrolatum is its potential contamination with PAHs, which are considered carcinogens. PAH exposure is linked to cancer development, particularly breast cancer. Salicylic Acid Madan, RK; Levitt, J (April 2014). "A review of toxicity from topical salicylic acid preparations".

After doing business like this, Woelbing discontinued making sales calls in 1972, which had mostly been in Wisconsin, Illinois and parts of Indiana. Woelbing's son Don joined the business in 1973, and introduced assembly lines to Carma Labs. In 1975, [3] due to the product's success, a new production facility was built in the southwest suburb of Franklin; production at the same facility continues to the present day. [3] [4] The company employs about 100 people. It remains under the ownership of the founding family. [5] [6] According to Safe Cosmetics, “ Benzophenone is persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT). These chemicals are linked to cancer, endocrine disruption, and organ system toxicity.” Petrolatum & Paraffin& Ozokerite Concerns reach reproductive organs and development. Octinoxate’s antiandrogenic effects alter organ development in fetuses, possibly affecting offspring. It also changes organ weight and structure in rats.
