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 flavors. Just in time for Summer (but awesome all year round!)
No trickery, clearly the inspiration for the flavor here – Creamsicle! Sure, they now come in a variety of flavors now. Really the only real flavor is the classic “Orange Creamsicle”. To achieve this unique taste, we’ve combined blood orange and a splash of vanilla essential oil.
The story behind the product: We first introduced our creamsicle lip balm to good friends at Alberta Apparel. The owner, Thomas Mo (a good friend of ours) traded some incredible clothes for these balms. Then, he gave them out to his customers as a bonus for each sale. People responded positively to the flavor and started to ask where they could get it… With demand – we supply! Long story short, Creamsicle is now a staple balm in regular circulation.
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
We use beeswax in our formula so, no we cannot make a vegan claim. Creamsicle lip balm, like all of our products, is however PETA certified cruelty free. As well, we are reviving our line of vegan lip balms, which substitute beeswax with candelilla and carnuba waxes.
