OUR STORY

A Little Bit About Us

Lowen’s Natural Skincare is a family-owned and operated skin care company based in Calgary, Alberta. Conceived by a veteran Pharmacist committed to using organic, fair-trade, and/or locally-sourced ingredients, Lowen’s creates unique skin care products that are safe, effective, long-lasting, and affordable.

Our Story

Lowen’s Natural Skincare is inspired by and named after our daughter, Lowen. After unsuccessful trials of commercially-available diaper rash treatments, we used our pharmaceutical knowledge and clinical experience to develop an innovative natural diaper balm using unconventional, unrefined locally-sourced ingredients. After some experimentation, we developed a formula that resolved Lowen’s diaper rash within days and, with continued preventative use, the rash never came back. We knew other parents faced the same dilemma we did and wanted to help them discover our product so that they, too, could prevent and treat diaper rash in their children. With that lofty goal in mind, Lowen’s Natural Skincare was born. After launching this flagship product, through extensive research and tenacity, we expanded our product line to include a variety of other balms, lotions, cleansers, scrubs, and creams.  Today, we continue to investigate and create new products to meet the needs of our customers.

We Formulate Our Products Based On These Four Principles
Safe for us = Safe for you

We formulate our products using evidence-based, peer-reviewed, and personally-tested ingredients to ensure they are safe for you and your family.  We ensure that our ingredients are thoroughly evaluated for safety, effectiveness, environmental impact, and animal welfare by the Environmental Working Group (EWG).

Do no Harm

We do not test our products on animals nor do we purchase ingredients that have been tested on animals. Furthermore, Lowen’s has also been vetted by PETA and are listed in their Cruelty Free Company database.

Keeping it Simple

We formulate our products with hard-working ingredients.  What this means is that any single ingredient can provide multiple benefits within a particular product.  This keeps our ingredients list to a minimum number of “simple” components.

Sensible Sourcing

We source local, certified organic and/or fair trade ingredients whenever possible and continually review and refine our practices to adhere to the above. If we are unable to find an ingredient close to home, we expand our search to find unrefined, organic, fair-trade ingredients from other community-minded social enterprises.
