Carmex introduces cold sore remedy
August 20th, 2014
FRANKLIN, Wis. – Carma Laboratories Inc. has expanded its lip care product lineup with the launch of Carmex Cold Sore Treatment.
The company said Wednesday that Carmex Cold Sore Treatment is the only over-the-counter cold sore product that works on contact to block pain and itch with 10% benzocaine, while also minimizing the appearance of a sore.1
Carmex Cold Sore Treatment features TriPLEX Formula advanced technology, which combines three optical brightener and filler technologies that each provide appearance-minimizing benefits, according to Carma Labs.
The first technology bends light as it approaches the cold sore, the second technology helps fill in unevenness of the cold sore and the third technology helps correct the skin tone of the cold sore, the company explained.
In addition, the formula contains a blend of silicone elastomers, commonly used in high-end skin care products, to give the product a smooth, silky feel.
Carmex Cold Sore Treatment comes in a 0.07-ounce tube and has a suggested retail price of $14.99. The product is available at drug stores and mass market retailers nationwide.
