Helping Entrepreneurs #InPursuitOf Their Dreams

The original jars of Carmex® Lip Balm were crafted in a kitchen by our founder, Alfred Woelbing, and delivered by hand, so we know how hard it can be to start a small business. That's why we awarded $10,000 each to help three entrepreneurs who pursue their dreams with determination. Check out their stories below.
