Lowen’s Lip Balm Lore
The story behind Lowen’s Lip Balms can be found in a failed experiment. In the early days, when trying to create a natural, effective and locally sourced diaper balm for our daughter Lowen. I accidentally came up with this lip balm formula.
You see, after a boat load of failed formulations. Finally, I had created an amazing diaper balm!
Not so…when my wife applied it to her hand and placed it under the tap. Clearly, it didn’t do a great job repelling the water. It actually “took on” water, which isn’t desirable when you are trying to protect baby’s bottom from diaper nastiness.
Later that same night after finishing up a late feeding with Lowen, my wife’s lips were really bothering her. Being half-asleep and not wanting to search in the dark for “lip chap”. She repurposed my failed formula. That happened to be sitting by the change table, as a lip balm.
In the morning, I learned by accident, I had created “the most amazing lip balms she’d tried!” Once I finally perfected our Butter Balm, I revisited this formula and actually flavored it with some peppermint oil to make “Candy Cane” lip balms for our holiday open house. They turned out to be very popular and from that point on our expanding line of naturally flavored lip balms was born!
- Net wt. 4.25 grams
- As always: Cruelty Free (we only test on willing humans)
- Our lip balm’s performance will vary in extreme heat. If storage temperatures exceed 40°C or 104°F your lip balm will soften and sweat out the oil components. Higher temperatures will cause the contents to liquify. For the best results, please leave your lip balm in a cool place!
So let’s cheers to #CANADIANGREENBEAUTY !!!

Questions & Answers
- Q Hello! Are all of your lip balms safe for children? I have two who have chronically dry lips and ... answer nowAsked on May 14, 2020 10:11 PMA
As far as safety goes, our lip balms are as safe as they come with both EWG and Certclean safety certifications. That said, we include a little menthol in our lip balms and depending on what your kiddos like, the cooling effect may be hit or miss. In a product like out Peppermint Pouty lip balm, you won't even notice it as the peppermint oil has a bit more impact. In any event, we use our lip balms on our kids all the time and they don't mind it (don't even comment on it) actually.
I hope this helps.
- Q I live in the U S and am wondering where locally your products are sold. I am in Pgh PA answer nowAsked on December 31, 2017 6:26 AMA Hello. Thanks for your question. We don't have any stores carrying our line in the US (yet). We have been looking into different distributors...which leads to stores but we are not there yet. We do ship all over North America however and Pittsburgh is closer to many of the other spots we've sent packages to. We ship via Canada Post/USPS so there would not be any import fees or duties associated with your purchase. If you have any other questions, let us know here or send them over to [email protected] Thanks!
