How We Make ChapStick®

Our dedication to lip health began in the 1880s, when ChapStick® invented a new lip care category with our classic lip balm product, making us America’s favorite lip care brand. Our lip balm is made in a large blender, which mixes together all of the ChapStick® ingredients. Next, color and flavor are added to the warm mixture. The final step in the process is pouring this warm mixture into containers, which is the convenient tube you can tuck into your pocket and bring along wherever you need to go!
