Carmex Launches Fragrance-Free Hand Cream

By Melissa Meisel | March 28, 2014

A light and wearable daytime formulation.

The latest creation at Carma Laboratories, Inc., the maker of Carmex lip balms and skin care products, is a fragrance-free “healing” cream, an alternative to the company’s popular fragranced Everyday Healing Cream product. According to the company, the new fragrance-free cream employs the same ultra-moisturizing, non-greasy formulation as the existing product to provide fast-absorbing, long-lasting relief for dry skin using effective ingredients like rich lanolin and petrolatum to soften, moisturize and heal the skin. 
 
As tested by Happi, this SKU is lightweight yet packs a punch. Its non-greasy feel makes the cream absorb quickly, ideal for day usage. The formulation features cacao (cocoa) seed butter and a hint of salicylic acid  to keep hands fresh.
 
The fragrance-free Everyday Healing Cream is available now in 4oz tubes at Walgreens and other stores across the US for around $5.
