Blistex was founded in 1947 as a small, family-run company in the business of developing and marketing lip care products, primarily in the United States. Our objectives in those days were to create quality products, achieve consistent growth and become an innovative leader in lip care.
The pursuit of quality and customer service led us in 1967 to create our research and development facilities, as well as build our own manufacturing and corporate headquarters complex in Oak Brook, Illinois. This move enabled us to have pinpoint control of every phase of our business from product formulation and testing to manufacturing and marketing. Over the years, consistent growth was fueled by constant innovation in the Blistex product line. New products were added and existing products improved as Blistex moved into worldwide lip and health care markets.
Today, the Blistex tradition is carried on by the second generation of our founding family. And we still believe in our original goals. Product quality. Growth. Innovation. And leadership. Some things should never change.
Blistex manufactures, tests and distributes a full line of quality lip care products, along with products from the Ivarest, Kank-a, Odor-Eaters and Stridex brands.
