Their objectives in those days were to create quality products, achieve consistent growth and become an innovative leader in lip care. Blistex manufactures, tests and distributes a full line of quality lip care products, along with products from the Ivarest, Kank-a, Tucks, Odor-Eaters and Stridex brands.
