It’s A Balm Within A Balm

OAK BROOK, Ill., June 25, 2014 –Savvy consumers are demanding more from their health and beauty care products. Their expectations include a desire for multi-functional formulations. Advances in formula science along with innovations in manufacturing capability now allow brands across multiple product categories to meet these consumers’ rising expectations.

Blistex’ newest technology provides a dual function approach you can actually see. New Blistex Ultra-Rich Hydration is the first double layer balm specifically designed to deliver uniquely luxurious moisturization. Ultra-Rich Hydration’s core stick approach allows delivery of concentrated softening moisturizers while retaining a smooth application from a solid balm.

The rich core deeply hydrates with more than 80% moisturizers, including shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil and jojoba. The outer layer is packed with lush protectants, and fortified with ceresin, beeswax and wheat germ oil. On application, the inner and outer layers blend together to seal in moisture and condition lips.

Blistex Ultra-Rich Hydration is offered in a lipstick-type container to enhance the experience of this luxuriously soft formula. With an expected retail price of $2.19-$3.49,Blistex Ultra-Rich Hydration will be available in drug stores, supermarkets and mass merchandisers nationwide in October, 2014.
