Is There Any Difference Between Chapstick And Lip Balm?
Lip balm is used for topical applications to protect the lips. Most lip balms contain waxy substances, like beeswax or carnauba wax.
Some use petroleum jelly as a moisturizing substance that helps lock in moisture. Others use shea butter, or lanolin.
There are lip balms that medicate or soothe various lip conditions. They contain phenol, salicylic acid, or sunscreen.
This, however, places them in the drug category.
Others stand out on the market through their beauty enhancing qualities. Especially through added dyes, flavors, and fragrances.
People can buy lip balms in various types of containers. From tins and jars to squeezable tubes, or lipstick applicators, to name a few.
On the other hand…
The chapstick is a type of lip balm. How did we get to call it “chapstick” and not lip balm?
Here’s how the term appeared:
“ChapStick” was the first-ever brand of lip balm originally created by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. It appeared on the market in the early 1880s and the famous logo as we know it came out in the 1930s.
It’s technically over 100 years old and one of the most popular types of lip balm to exist.
Given its worldwide and frequent use, the term has been generalized to such an extent that “chapstick” is the term replacing all forms of lip balm in a tube or lipstick applicator.
“Due to its popularity, the term has become a genericized trademark. It popularly refers to any lip balm contained in a lipstick-style tube and applied in the same manner as lipstick. However, the term is still a registered trademark, with rights exclusively owned by GlaxoSmithKline.” (Wikipedia)
Chapstick Is For Everyone, All Year Long
Same Tube, Different Labels
When you already have the tubes with the balm inside, all you have to do is stick the right labels, based on their features or purpose.
For example, you can emphasize different types of weather your products may protect against.
You can highlight sun resistance in the summer.
Or mention cold and wind protection in the winter. This will remind shoppers why they need lip balm.
Shifting your products’ visual identity is a good way to keep buyers interested.
Plus, if you set up a limited-time offer, a seasonal label is the right place to discuss it. It’s much more cheap and practical to change label designs seasonally.
In case you’re not manufacturing your own brand of salve, you can team up with third parties.
After all, making promotional chapsticks with companies’ logos on the labels is quite a trend now.
So, all you have to do is design, print, and apply custom chapstick labels that fit your strategy and needs.
Custom Design For Your Chapstick Labels
1. Determine your chapstick label size
2. Choose your chapstick label shape
YourBoxSolution labels come in any shape and design you want.
Most chapsticks are wrapped in rectangular labels, with or without safety seals. But who says you’re not allowed to be creative and design it your own way? As long as it serves your purpose, be bold.
Circular or Oval Labels
Rectangular or Square Labels
Custom Shaped Labels
3. Choose the material type of your chapstick labels
All our labels are made of biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP). This is a durable material that makes them oil & water-resistant, tear-resistant, chemicals & UV resistant, and non-toxic.
This material gives them extra strength making them easy to print, coat, and laminate at the same time.
Plus, you never have to worry about them peeling off, smudging, or fading. They are durable and reliable.
You can choose between three different types of labels.
Printed on white film. Any color can be printed on top of the white ink.
Printed on transparent background film. Illusion of an “invisible label”.
Printed on a silver substrate. Makes all printed colors appear metallic.
4. Coatings and finishes for chapstick labels
Make sure to add an extra touch. You’ll never be sorry for it. Make your labels special because they deserve it.
All our labels are finished with a gloss or matte laminate for FREE.
Gloss Laminated Labels (FREE)
Perfect choice for a shiny finish and a very reflective surface of the label.
Matte Laminated Labels (FREE)
Subtle, non-glossy lamination, perfect for a special effect.
Soft Touch Laminated Labels
Shine-free and smooth surface – special sensation to touch and elegant looks.
5. Extra options
A thin sheet of metallic foil is thermally applied to the label substrate leaving a metallic surface in desired areas. However, we recommend that your finest details are no smaller than 1 point, to achieve fine foil areas. Learn all about foil stamping here.
