Creamsicle Lip Balm
Creamsicle Lip Balm – You guessed it! Inspired one of our favorite summertime treats. While they now come in a variety of flavours, there really is only one real flavour and that’s the orange creamsicle. To achieve this unique taste, like everything we do…we do is differently. This time we’ve combined blood orange essential oil with a little vanilla essential oil to impart the “ice cream” effect.
Creamsicle Lip Balm
This is one of our newest flavours – just in time for Summer (but awesome all year round)
As you would expect, the inspiration for the flavour of latest amazing lip balm creation – Creamsicle was well…creamsicles. While they now come in a variety of flavours, there really is only one real flavour and that’s orange creamsicle. To achieve this unique taste, like everything we do…we do is differently. This time we’ve combined blood orange essential oil with a little vanilla essential oil.
The story behind the product: We first introduced our creamsicle lip balm through our good friends at Alberta Apparel – The ower, Thomas Mo is a good friend of ours and being a good friend, Thomas traded some incredible clothes for these lip balms and he gave them out to his customers as a bonus for each sale. People responded very positively to the flavour and started to ask where they could get it…so with demand – we supply! Long story short, Creamsicle is now in regular circulation.
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!” Once I finally perfected our Butter Balm, I revisited this formula and actually flavoured 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 flavoured lip balms was born!
One last feather in our cap- all of Lowen’s incredible Lip Balms are EWG Verified™, meaning that our lip balms are “adequately preserved and free of contaminants, and that manufacturing processes meet EWG’s rigorous criteria.”
