Lowen's Lip Balm Lore
The story behind all of Lowen's Lip Balms can be found in a failed experiment. In the early days when I was trying to create a natural, incredible effective and locally sourced diaper balm for our daughter Lowen, I accidentally came up with the lip balm formula.
You see, after a boat load of experimentation and failed formulations, I finally thought I had created an amazing diaper balm!
Not so...when my wife applied it to her hand and placed it under the tap, 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 dirty diaper nastiness.
Anyhow, I felt pretty defeated and my better half recognized this. 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 decided to repurpose my failed formula, that happened to be sitting by the change table, as a lip balm.
In the morning, I learned that, by accident, I had created "the most amazing lip balms she's tried!"
And there you have it.
