Melanie and Mark Chapman used to stir a milk jug over a stove top to make just 10 lip balms at a time.
Now with the help of machinery the pair can make up to 10,000 per day.
The couple's Mandurah-based company, Clean and Pure all started when Ms Chapman noticed her eczema cleared up while living in Greece for a year.
As a lifelong sufferer of eczema, eating and using body products from the island made her symptoms vanish but the rash soon returned on arrival to Australia in 2004.
Unable to find any products in Australia that worked well for her skin, the couple started creating skincare for their family with natural and unprocessed ingredients.

"In 2004 natural products weren't even a thing on Ebay so we had to make our own," Mr Chapman said.
"Friends and family started buying it then we decided to put it on Ebay.
"It organically started selling one or two here or there then all of a sudden someone put in a 1000 lip balm order and 5000 bars of soap."
At the time the pair were still doing everything manually from creating the products to putting on the labels so large orders were not on the cards. But demand continued to grow.
It was only in 2016 when they decided to scale up Clean and Pure.
"We were terrible at making products on a large scale to start with - it took a fair bit of time and money to get it right," Mr Chapman said.
"We always had made honey lip balm but in small quantities so when we tried to make it in large batches the honey didn't like to mix with oil and wax.
"We ended up getting a mechanical processor that would micronise the honey and if we kept the temperature low we could maintain the honey through the lip balm.
"Most of our competitors aren't doing that - they're using honey flavouring oil and still calling it honey lip balm."
The couple were even recognised for developing a new process to create skincare products.
As Mark and Melanie gave the Mail a tour of the warehouse they showed off all the local products they use including virgin olive oil and natural bees wax.
"We had bees coming into the warehouse because of the bees wax in the warehouse," Ms Chapman said.
"When we label the honey products the bees come in and hammer the label machine," Mr Chapman said.
Ms Chapman said it felt good to be able to use local ingredients and hire staff from Mandurah especially with the current high unemployment rates.
"Our eldest son works with us all the time - we try and instill a good work ethic in all four of our kids," she said.
"It's great as a family business but we can employ local too like hiring people to box our products."
"We get everything done locally from printing through to our ingredients," Mr Chapman said.
The Mandurah family have achieved a lot since starting the business with their skin care range exported all over the world.
Their products even appeared on Good Morning America two weeks ago with the range already becoming the top three selling item on the show's shop.
"Last year we were selling a lip balm in one minute worldwide now that is our statistics just in the US," Mr Chapman said.
"We moved into this warehouse a year ago and I thought there was so much space in it - now I'm looking at it and thinking we are going to need a bigger space in a couple of years," Ms Chapman said.
